I have not blogged much this week. My writing mojo is still elsewhere and I am having a hard time pulling myself together. But I did not just waste my time over at Facebook. I took the time to read on what fellow mommy bloggers share on their blogs recently. I was surprised that they posted things I have been meaning to ask or research on. Now that they have started it, I have more inspiration to do my search because I now know where to start.
While it has started to rain, I am still determined to enroll Maxyn to a swimming lesson. Thanks to Mommy Kat for writing about this topic. I am now informed what to expect when I finally get to ask the school near us that offer swimming lessons for toddlers as well as what my tot can benefit from the lesson.
Mommy Pehpot’s take on gadgets and kids is another hit for me. It is comforting to read familiar activities that I already do with my girls in her list of things to do without gadgets. I am doing fun things with the girls after all. And the twist in some of the activities she listed, I can’t wait to try them here in our home. In this era where gadgets has been taking away physical activities from families, parent’s should really declare a NO GADGET DAY. :p
So your parents declared the NO GADGETS DAY. Do not mumble, answer back or question their decision. Instead of rebelling, just follow them because after it, you’d surely thank them. As Mommy Phoebe put it, understanding parenthood may seem like an out of this world idea but when you become one, you will definitely appreciate your folks more and all the time they said NO to you.
I am with Mommy Sammy when she said that the key to eating while pregnant is MODERATION. We can use our pregnancy to eat anything and everything that we want to satisfy ourselves and the little one in our womb. But we have to remember that less or more of anything is not good. Fresh produce like fruits and vegetables are always a safe choice. Eat well and the baby inside will be well too.
However, there are times when no matter how careful we are in taking care of our children, from womb to birth, there are things that happen where we do not have any control. In any case that you feel that your baby is delayed on some aspects, that s/he is not within the milestones s/he should have achieved, stop thinking twice and seek expert advice. Thanks to Mommy Levy for writing about early intervention, I myself now have a better understanding of this topic.
It is still summer according to the weather bureau but there has been scattered rain showers the past days. Make sure you and your children prevent cough and colds to keep the summer fun going.
