National Night Out Promotes Year-Round Community Safety Awareness ( Momimhar posted on October 7th, 2015 )

“I had so much fun!” K told me when we were in the car pulling out of the Baptist Church parking lot last night.  We went to town for the 2015 National Night Out celebration.  National Night Out is an annual event uniquely designed to promote year-round crime prevention, strengthen the police-community cooperation against crime, and build strong community safety awareness.  Sponsors gave reading materials for everyone to read and small favors for everybody, too.

As soon as we got there at the Olde City Park in Downtown Wylie, where the event was holding, I let K try riding on the pony. I saw it has a long line so we started there because they might load the ponies back to their trailers when it gets dark.  K enjoyed the ride.  She said it was her favorite part in the event.  Next she got to pet the goats and the sheep.  She liked that so much that she went there and fed them after a while again.  K was happy to know that there was a mini-petting zoo because she enjoyed petting the goats last year.

I enjoy these kinds of community events.  There is people interaction and learning.  There are fun activities for kids and adults include:

  • bounce house
  • games in every booth
  • face painting
  • petting zoo
  • fire trucks
  • K9 Demo
  • SWAT Team
  • free food
  • music
  • pony rides
  • fireworks

It Was A Fun New Year’s Celebration For The Three Of Us ( Momimhar posted on January 6th, 2014 )

Happy New Year’s to everyone!  I hope y’all had a wonderful and safe celebration welcoming the new year 2014.

As for me, we had a great celebration.  My dear husband made some Mexican soup and bought some fireworks to shoot on New Year’s Eve.  Despite of the cold temperature, we shoot fireworks.  My darling daughter was very excited about shooting fireworks.  She didn’t like the loud ones though.  We lit a few sparklers and we had fun.  Her daddy was keeping an eye on her and and we were supervising the activity very well for everybody’s safety.

Kids’ Safety In the Pool ( Momimhar posted on June 23rd, 2013 )

We had fun time yesterday at the pool with DD’s aunt and uncle.  Well, only the three got into the water because I wasn’t feeling good yesterday.  Besides swimming, my Darling Daughter (DD) liked playing with the beach ball.  For some reason, I did not think of taking toddler floaties with us.  My little girl could have swam, floated, and splashed the water by herself.

Speaking of swimming, I am thinking of enrolling my little girl to a swimming lesson again this year to keep her swimming interest going.  She did a good job last year even though she would not want to let go of either me or daddy when it was time for us to start the routine.

Today, I noticed when they were in the pool, DD still hangs on to them.  I knew she wanted to stand at the bottom but the depth is 3 to 4 feet.  That is why she clings to us because she is afraid sink.  ‘Glad that the nephew stopped by and brought a swimming vest with floaties attached to it.  It is very important for young children to wear floaties or life vest while swimming in the pool.  And grown up supervision is highly advisable to kids’ safety in the water.  My daughter didn’t like the vest though.  She wasn’t comfortable wearing it.  Maybe because she couldn’t swim and splash properly.  But her aunt and uncle kept her company in the pool.  That’s the sweetest thing.

Summer Outdoor Water Toys For Kids ( Momimhar posted on May 28th, 2013 )

Summer fun is now starting.  And if you are planning to visit a Water Park or go to the beach this year, always take sunscreen to protect you and your little ones from the harmful UV rays of the sun.  Because of the high temperatures, don’t leave your child in the car to prevent suffocation from the heat.  Always keep in mind that child safety as well as the family’s is very important any time of year.

But if you are done with Water Parks and the beach and you want to have something to entertain your children outdoors during summer time, here are summer outdoor water toys that your kids will totally have fun with.

Sprinklers – What I mean is the water sprinklers you can put in the yard so your kids will just giggle and splash as water sprinkles toward them.

I tried using the garden water sprinkler one day and my darling daughter couldn’t stop playing in the water pretending that it’s going after her.

Inflatable pool – For young children ages 18 months to 5 years old, an inflatable swimming pool is ideal outdoors.

I have one for my darling daughter but wasn’t impressed with the inflatable pool the first time she got in it.  Later, she would look for it after she’s done with the water sprinkler.

Water Splash Play Table – This is fun for toddlers.  Some of these include little toys that they can play while splashing in the water.

I got a Splash Play Table for my little girl a year ago and she really liked it.  In fact, she gets on top of the table and says “I’m gonna swim here, mommy.”

Water Slides – When I saw a photo of this water slide in the paper, I thought it would be so much fun in the yard.  My suggestion is to buy this for older kids ages 5 and above.

Always remember that, whatever activity you and your kids do outdoors, proper adult supervision should be imposed.  So what outdoor water toy do you think your children enjoy the most?

A “Must Have” For Kids’ Safety Outdoors ( Momimhar posted on May 28th, 2013 )

Parents across the globe worry about the safety of their children.  After all, isn’t a parent’s primary job to care for and protect their child?  Unfortunately, while a parent can try their best to protect a child, sometimes accidents occur and children get injured.  While not all accidents are stoppable, most parents do their best to keep children safe.  From teaching a child to look both ways before crossing the street to making sure a child is in a car seat, outdoor safety is a huge issue of concern for parents.

One of the biggest concerns many parents have is that a child might get behind a vehicle that is backing up.  Since young children are so small, many drivers are unable to see if a child is right behind the car until it is too late.  Fortunately, there is now the option to get backup sensors for cars.  AmericanSecurityCo.com has backup sensors for cars that anyone can use. These are a “must have” for any parent of young children.

Not only should parents have these, but anyone who lives in a neighborhood with young children, as well.  A backup sensor means that parents won’t have to worry as much about the possibility of a child being injured by a moving vehicle.  Instead, parents can rest safe knowing that the driver will know if a child accidentally wanders behind a car.
