Last day to go malling

Everywhere is traffic, and I mean heavy traffic. People are in their last minute shopping for gifts and personal stuff. Its quite hard to be stuck there in the middle of nowhere if you have toddlers inside the car. This is the reason why I always bring some toys when we go out. We even played games on what we see around,like cars, colors, people, trees etc. My son was even delighted to see a fig tree this morning. They study trees in school this term so we spent a good time inside the car talking about trees.

Anyway, I will be away to enjoy the Holidays with my family. I would like to wish all of you a very meaningful Christmas!

not feeling well

I wasn't able to blog much lately because I am feeling sick. Maybe because I do so many things everyday that I don't get enough sleep anymore. Work and house chores are getting in my way, I can't seem to handle my daily schedule well. So I took a break last weekend to rest. I am too scared to be hospitalized even if we have an affordable health insurance. My kids need me , I seriously cant afford to be sick. Getting enough rest is truly the answer. Now i feel re energized and I work better the next day because I make it a point that I get enough sleep every night. Take care of your health everyone!

Lipofuze reviews

I noticed from my recent vacation pictures that I gained weight. Christmas season is here so I know that I will continually gain weight. Good Food is everywhere and its just so hard to resist it. I dont know why I am gaining weight fast lately, maybe its because of my hormones once again. Do you think i will need some diet pills by next month? I was just reading some lipofuze reviews that's why I got conscious with my figure again. Hopefully I can shed off the few pounds by exercise.I just want to look good in jeans that's why I am doing some exercises for my legs and my tummy.

gift for my boy

I keep on looking for a john deere turf tractor with trailer for my little boy. He saw this at the mall last month and he told me that he wants to have one for Christmas.I told him he needs to be good to his sister so Santa Claus can give him one. Kids nowadays are lucky with their toys and gadgets. This tractor will surely bring him so much joy and also to his sister. I realized that it is good to invest with this item since I have two kids. I am so sure that this will last for a longtime as it brings joy to my kids

Family Day

It was a great day for my family. It was just a simple weekday but we get to spend it together because my son had a school activity and we all joined him. He watched a musical play entitle Sleeping Beauty and after that we went around the mall for lunch and a little shopping. I finally got some small presents for his schoolmates and cousins. I even got compression stockings that my mom asked me to buy for her. I think this to aid something in her legs. After that quick shopping, we went to check out the big school we are considering for my son. It was a good experience since we were able to observe a class. The final decision would certainly depend on my son, but hopefully he will like it there.

more about constipation

Let me share with you some more information about constipation. If we are having the same problem with our kids, leave me a message and maybe we can help out each other

What can I do if my child is constipated?

There are many things you can do to help your child:

  • Diet. You can start by increasing the amount of fluid your child drinks each day. If your baby is eating cereal, you can try adding a little prune juice to it. If you have an older child, make sure she or he is drinking plenty of water. You can also give your child prune juice, bran cereal, fruits and vegetables to increase the amount of fiber in his or her diet and help your child pass a stool. Avoid giving your child candy and refined sugars.
  • Bowel habit training. Teach your child to go to the bathroom when he or she first feels the urge to have a bowel movement. You can help your child establish a regular bowel habit by asking your child to sit on the toilet for at least 10 minutes at about the same time each day, preferably after a meal. Make sure your child can place his or her feet firmly on the floor while sitting on the toilet. If this is not possible, put a footstool in front of the toilet. While your child is sitting on the toilet, you might let your child read a story book or listen to the radio.
  • Medicine. Many laxatives are available to treat constipation in children. The choice of laxative depends on the age of your child and how serious the constipation is. Ask your family doctor to suggest a brand name and tell you how much to use.
  • Start a reward program. Begin rewarding your child for just sitting on the toilet. For example, if your child sits on the toilet at the planned time, reward your child with a favorite activity. If your child has a bowel movement, give your child praise and a reward. Avoid using food as a reward. Young children may like to be awarded with stickers or stars on a chart. Older children may like to add up points for a larger reward, such as a trip to a movie theater or the park.

getting sentimental..

My boys loves goofing around and making faces in front of the camera. This pic was taken in early 2009 time flies. Now I have two kids who drives me crazy every single day. Surely, being a mother is the best thing that ever happened in my life.

Hello Santa!

I think this is the 3rd year that Santa Claus is on this exact spot in our house. This is one of those we bought from the Christmas store near our area and though it is made of paper mache, I can say that it's worth the price. With the proper storage, this decor can surely go a long way.. I plan to get more Santa for this year, my kids love him!


We went to Migo and Samantha's party a few weeks ago with the Safari Adventure theme. Kids were asked to be in costume so my little girl used this costume again! I didn't had a hard time changing her clothes. She even enjoyed staying at the stage, jumping around and even walking like she owns it! Thanks to Mike and Jacqui for inviting us, we enjoyed it to bits!

ready for potty training?

I'm not quite sure if my 2 year old little girl is ready for some potty training.. I saw these signs in one article and from here, i will assess if we can start training her

Signs that your child is ready include the following:
  • Your child signals that his or her diaper is wet or soiled.
  • Your child seems interested in the potty chair or toilet.
  • Your child says that he or she would like to go to the potty.
  • Your child understands and follows basic instructions.
  • Your child feels uncomfortable if his or her diaper is wet or soiled.
  • Your child stays dry for periods of 2 hours or longer during the day.
  • Your child wakes up from naps with a dry diaper.
  • Your child can pull his or her pants down and then up again.

its gonna be a busy month

It's December! I feel excited for the holidays!

We have a lot of reunions / parties lined up this month and I hope that I can attend in all of those. This is what I love this season, you get to hear from everyone close to you, you catch up with each others lives and you get to eat great food. What more can you ask for? This weekend, after I finish my research about md clear review , I will meet up my dear friends for dinner. It's a little Christmas party for our group too. Next week is scheduled for my college friends, its been a while since we last saw each other. I feel excited already, I just can't wait! What are your plans for this month? Its truly the most wonderful time of the year.

It's December!

Are you done decorating your home with Christmas decors? This year, we have very few decors in the house, just mostly the Santa Claus and some lights. No Christmas tree since I don't have some helpers here. I made my very own version of a tree:)

Okay , so i tried this quiz for fun... try it too

You Are a Snowman

Friendly and fun, you enjoy bringing holiday cheer to everyone you know!

Treating Constipation

My son has been constipated lately , I am looking for ways to ease his constipation. I bought fruits rich in fiber last night at the grocery. I also grabbed a few yoghurt and yoghurt drinks because these are effective ones for him. Now I am into some major reading about constipation.

Let me share with you some information i found online when it comes to treating constipation.

· avoid foods high in fat and sugars

· eat plenty of fibers, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables

· drink eight glasses of fluid a day

· exercise on a daily basis

· do not hold stool for fear of missing out on some activity, when you feel like you have to use the restroom, go

· check to see if current medications are causing the constipation

Waiting to board

Just a few weeks ago, we had our short beach vacation with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We had an early flight and here's a picture of the kids while waiting to board. This was around 4am , can you imagine? My little girl was so full of energy because she just woke up when we arrived at the airport. My little boy is so much into his Leapster, i just love to travel with him now, everything is so easy. We are planning another trip by January 2011 , I hope we can grab a promo fare.
