Groupon Has Great Deals On ‘Good For Kids ‘ Classes and Activities Near You ( Momimhar posted on September 14th, 2016 )

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

If you are a mom like me who’s always on the lookout for engaging activities for children to enjoy all year round, let’s high five!  You see, keeping our kids busy on the activities they love to do is beneficial to their development because, not only they gain self-confidence but also, they learn how to socialize.

When my darling K turned 3, I started looking for an activity that might interest her.  I enrolled her to ballet classes.  Searching for dance schools wasn’t easy for me.  I asked for recommendations from my mom friends.  There was one close to our town but the registration fee was so expensive.  I bumped into Groupon.com and looked around their website and found some good Good For Kids health and fitness, and classes.  The locations were ideal and they offered discounts on classes with Groupon coupons.  Since my darling daughter was interested in gymnastics, I enrolled her in a gymnastics school and availed the discounted price listed on Groupon.  Not only K enjoyed the gymnastics classes.  She’s also learning about balance, composure, posture, and teamwork.

I was a happy mom since I found Groupon.com.  I like their site because of so many great deals – not only on kids activities but also on dining and shopping.  Every now and then,  I check for Nordstrom coupons on shoes and apparels on their site, too.  You can also follow them on social for updates at:

Now that the Holidays are fast approaching, start checking out Groupon.com now.  🙂

 

New Playground Equipment at The Park ( Momimhar posted on February 26th, 2016 )

We cannot wait for this new playground equipment to be installed completely at the Olde City Park in Wylie. It is about time to have the old ones replaced since they were old and damaged already.  They were putting more slides, I can see. Spring is just around the corner and hopefully the play park will reopen very soon.

I am looking forward to this year’s social events in the town.  One of my favorite event is the City Night Out.  There are so many vendors and fun stuff for the kids.  Also, the fireworks display is awesome.

Tips On How To Take Care Of Your Eyes And Resolve Vision Problems ( Momimhar posted on December 10th, 2015 )

As a stay-at-home mom blogger, I spend a lot of time on the computer – typing blog post entries, editing pictures, sorting photos for Pinterest Boards, and responding to email messages.  I don’t do these on my cellphone because, you know, cellphones have small screens.  And that means, my eyes get strained sometimes which is giving me headaches once in a while.  I do know that vision problems run in my family.  But I am trying to not take the risk of acquiring them because I don’t want to wear eyeglasses.

But there are some people who have really bad vision.  Some got it when they were born and others acquired vision problems as they get old.  That is why they get prescription eyeglasses to help them see things perfectly.  My husband has an eye problem since he was seven years old.  And he is gonna wear eyeglasses for the rest of his life.  I know it’s not ideal but what can he do?

But is there a way to treat bad vision?  Some eye exercises can help strengthen the muscles of the eyes. I also heard about some type of eyeglasses that can help treat a certain vision problem.  A good eye specialist can help with eye care needs and give recommendations on ways to improve good vision.

Helpful Tips: 

That is why we should take care of our eyes especially our children’s.  Kids are vulnerable to vision problems because of modern technology around us.  These tips are based on my personal experience and daily routine.

  • Do not overdo looking on the screen of our computers, laptops, phones, and tablets.  Look away from the computer after every 20 minutes.
  • Don’t watch television or read when you are lying down.
  • Wash your face 10 minutes after you wake up in the morning.
  • Relax your eyes (few minutes after working on the computer) before washing your face at bedtime.
  • Keep an ideal distance when watching television – not too close and not too far.
  • Eat yellow, orange, and green vegetables rich in Vitamin A.
  • Exercise your eyes outdoors by looking as far as you can.

Hope these help.  If you have more recommendations, please leave in the comments below.

Encourage Your Kids To Participate In Physical Development Programs ( Momimhar posted on October 8th, 2015 )

My darling daughter and I went to her tumbling, gymnastics, and cheer class this afternoon.  I was glad that I didn’t forget the schedule today because we missed the first day of classes last Thursday.  K was very excited to try this new skills and physical development for toddlers.  As much she loves jumping, K loves tumbling as well.  I noticed that she got bored in ballet class when she was 3 so I decided to let her try something else that I know she enjoys.

We arrived at the recreation center 10 minutes early but the in-charge let K inside the classroom.  The room is big and wide.  The props are ready and waiting for the kids to show up.  There were six children in the list but only three of them came including K.  The other one, though she was inside the room, didn’t join the activity.

It’s a 30-minute class which is good, I think, because toddlers get tired and bored easily.

The Wylie Recreation Center offers fitness and developmental classes for toddlers and young kids age 2-5.  Depending on the type of class, the monthly rates ranges from $25 to $125.  For members and Wylie residents, the rates are lower.  So if there are health and fitness programs for kids in your area, you can register may register your children.  I am sure they will have a great time.

My darling daughter K has the sniffles.  She actually ran a fever last Friday evening that made us miss the Bible Study.  The fever quickly occurred.  She was sneezing and feeling tired Friday afternoon and that night her body temperature rose suddenly.  I didn’t sleep very well because I was monitoring her temperature.  Gladly there’s a fever and pain reliever in our cabinet.  There was a birthday invitation the next day but we didn’t go because DD was not feeling well.

On Sunday, K was feeling a little lively so we were able to attend another birthday party held on that day.  The sky cleared up which is very nice because it was raining these past two weeks already.  It was sunny and breezy.  K had a wonderful time playing with her friends.

As a parent, we worry a lot when our children gets sick.  Common colds and cough cannot be avoided because we can catch them whether we like it or not.  To get rid of it and to keep it from getting worse, an effective cold medicine and home remedies should be taken.

Home Remedies

Honey Lemon Tea – Hot water, lemon juice, honey, tea (drink every night to sooth the throat and help loosen the mucus)

Orange Juice – Drink one cup of orange daily

Warm Bath – Take a quick warm bath before bedtime to feel fresh (except if running a fever)

Sponge Bath – If you are not feeling well to take a warm bath, a sponge bath will do.  Wet a hand towel with warm water and wipe all over the body.

In addition the above mentioned home remedies, eating more fruits, vegetables, drinking more water everyday, and plenty of rest can help get rid of sickness completely.

Medicine

Cold and Cough – You can buy medicine for cough and colds over the counter.  Always follow the dosage on stated on the label.

Nasal Spray – Nasal sprays are great to sooth the nasal passages.  Nasal passages can get swollen from sneezing and blowing the nose.  Nasal sprays can help moisturize and sooth them.

As of today, my darling daughter is back to her active self.  Though there still coughing here and there but she is getting better and better.  She’s healthy so sickness doesn’t stay long.
