Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


Daycare Woes

On Friday I walked into Abigail’s daycare and went to the front desk. As I handed my card to the receptionist I heard her ask the nurse if she had visited pre-toddler 2 and if it was what they thought.

My daughter was in pre-toddler 2 so my first reaction was that some kid was sick and Abigail was going to catch whatever it is and then I would catch it and that was just swell. I didn’t hear the rest of the conversation because I was headed to her room. When I opened the door the teacher asked if the nurse had talked to me. Still, I figured they were going to brief the parents about whatever that kid had.

When I said no she started to explain that they were concerned about Abigail. My brain did a 180 and I became embarrassed that this entire time I was thinking some other kid was sick when in fact, it was mine. I asked what was wrong and they pointed out the couple red spots on her face. I was immediately relieved because I knew it was nothing.

I explained that my daughter has incredibly sensitive skin and when she wakes up from a nap her face is always broken out. I’m not sure why but I know it happens when she sweats too. The teachers relaxed and understood as if it was a common thing. They even said it was only bad when she woke up from her nap and then would get a lot better.

Does this happen to anyone else’s child?
