Philippians 4:8 reads, “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”
Whenever I am tempted to get anxious about the Happy Baby’s feeding tube (and the issues surrounding it), I remember that verse.
And I set my thoughts to thinking positively about it.
Here are my excellent and noble thoughts about the Happy Baby’s feeding tube (i.e. the Second Belly Button – thanks to a dear reader for that fun perspective!) and why I think everyone should have one.
Yes, you read that right.
How many people do you know who brought their baby home from the hospital and on the FIRST NIGHT slept 12 hours straight?!
We simply program the feeding pump to give the Happy Baby’s tummy a little bit of milk every hour and voila!
No midnight snacking!
Excellent Thought #2 – Med Wars No More.
With the Happy Buddy I practically have to sit on top of him to make him take medicine when he is sick.
With the Happy Baby I simply push it through the feeding tube with a small syringe and he doesn’t have to taste a thing!
I never EVER have to worry if the Happy Baby is eating enough.
Simply dump whatever amount you think he needs through the tube and set your mind at ease.
Excellent Thought #4 - Venting.
This is the BEST feature of the feeding tube.
The Happy Hubby is an awesome Vent-er. It’s a very self-gratifying job – instant results. Good for the male ego.
Excellent Thought #5 - In a few months the Happy Baby’s going to get the hang of the whole eating thing and we’ll be able to get the tube removed and all that he will have left is a tiny scar – his second belly button.
That last thought is more like wishful thinking.
But, hey, we serve a God who can do “immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine!” (Ephesians 3:20), so I am going to choose to dwell on that.
I’d say that is the most excellent and praiseworthy thought EVER!
Happy Positive Think-ing and Anxiety Free Live-ing! :-)
