I’m as guilty as the rest of the moms who complain when it comes to first world baby problems.  So no judgement here. It’s just funny, when you step back and look at the big perspective. Most of our issues are so tiny, yet we let them be so big.

Speaking of the third world, I wouldn’t feel right now mentioning how we who can afford excess can help those in need, especially little people! 2 of my favorite organizations that are making a change are World Vision and Compassion International. Sponsoring a child or donating will cost less a month then that custom Etsy shirt you just bought for your baby. Sure your baby may not look that cute 1 day out of his life – but another 20 babies will live an extra day because of your help.
