Runny nose and teary eyes… Darn. My baby Julie had colds since yesterday. I couldn’t bear seeing her cry last night because of the discomfort she felt. So I did what my mom usually does when I was sick – rubbing Vicks all over my body.
I gave my baby gentle massage on her chest, back and her forehead. Afterwards, I gave her a little foot massage as well. Most Chinese say that the foot is connected to all our vital organs. Since I wasn’t sure which part of the foot is the lungs connected, I gave gentle pressure on both of her soles and cuddled her to sleep.
Somehow, I miss getting sick… When my mom massages my chest and back, just like what I did to my baby Julie. I just want to go back to those days… I really do.
