I made this birthday calendar for our neighbor who was kind enough to point out my ineptness at being a mom and tell me to take my child to the Dr because he has croup. OK, so actually I called her and said, "Owen sounds weird, should I take him to the DR?"
The answer was yes. We were able to get him into the Urgent Care place and didn't have to go to the emergency room. And then she brought us dinner too! She saved us tons of money at the very least, possibly my child and my sanity.
I made the calendar following this tutorial and gave her some cards from my stash to go with it as a Thank You.
And I'm probably not really inept at being a mom. I've just never heard a "croup cough" but it is now forever imprinted in my mind.
