Holiday Shopping Tips for the Babies in Your Life ( Momimhar posted on November 5th, 2018 )

If you are lucky enough to have one or more babies in your family right now, you may be thinking about what you will get them for the holidays. After all, the holiday shopping season is fast approaching, and many people like to get all of their shopping done as early as possible to save themselves money and stress. Babies are one of life’s greatest delights, but the truth is that they can be hard to shop for, especially when they are very young. If you’re not sure how to shop for the littlest ones in your life, here are a few tips to help you get started.

Baby K

The first thing to think about when you’re shopping for a holiday gift for a baby in your life is their parents. After all, the parents are the ones who will actually be opening the gift and they are the ones whose tastes really matter. If you want to be a hit with the parents, pick something for their baby that fits with their opinions and styles. For example, a Seahawks onesie would be perfect for sports fans from Seattle, or a little superhero shirt would be great for a fan of comic books.

Next, think about the baby and what he or she would enjoy. Of course, you can’t know any particular baby’s real tastes, and babies change every day, but use common sense to pick some appropriate. Don’t buy anything that a baby can’t safely play with, which means that it must be safe enough to put in their mouth. Choose something soft and snugly to make sure that a baby will want to hold it close and touch it often. Pick something bright and colorful to get his or her attention and delight.

Finally, don’t stress about it. The most important gift that you can give to any baby in your life is the gift of time. Take some time this holiday season to spend with all the little ones that you love.

About Me According To My Child ( Momimhar posted on October 11th, 2018 )

As I was cleaning up and organizing some of K’s school work from  last year, I took a moment reading one of her journals-the Work on Writing Journal-and I found this in one of the pages.

Essentials For Every Field Day ( Momimhar posted on May 26th, 2018 )

Students had fun at the Field Day games

Water slide was K’s favorite at the Field Day.

The classic game of Tug-O-War. Field Day 2018.

Yesterday, Friday, was Field Day at K’s school. Everyone was very busy preparing the outdoor games, obstacle courses, bounce house, and water slide.  The children were very excited and couldn’t wait for the special day to come.

The night before, I prepared the important things K may need according to the school’s notice-sunscreen, towel, bottled water, change clothes, and snack/sack lunch.

Sunscreen

Because all the activities are outdoors and late Spring in Texas start to get really hot, it is very necessary to put on sunscreen. Even if it is a cloudy weather, putting on sunscreen is highly recommended to prevent getting sunburns especially on young children’s skin.  We’ve been using Banana Boat Sun Comfort Sunscreen Spray.  It has been our trusted protection against harmful UV rays for years whenever we go outdoors or to the beach.  It’s non-sticky feel after spraying gives it the advantage.

Towel and Change Clothes

Usually field day activities include water games.  Darling daughter said the water slide was her favorite among all the fun games yesterday. So she brought a towel and change clothes because, boy, the students were soaking wet yesterday from the water slide and sponge battle. They had a lot of fun.

Bottled Water

Of course, with constant movement in the heat, the kids needed hydration. And the most convenient item to bring was bottled water.  The only thing was, there’s no place to put those drinks in.  The crate was full of towels. So I had to look for a big plastic bag to put all those drinks in so I can carry them around.  Gladly one of the staff at the sign in area under the shade of the trees had an extra big plastic bag.

Sack Lunch and Snack 

I don’t remember if I ordered a sack lunch for K from the cafeteria weeks before the field day. So I packed her lunch anyway just in case I didn’t.  After the students’ completed all the outdoor activities, they went back to the classrooms and changed.  Then they proceed to the cafeteria for the dance party and yearbook signing. The students ate lunch in their respective classrooms after.

It was an awesome fun day. Good thing the First Graders were the first ones in the schedule to go outdoors before it got too hot at mid day. To end the day, they had Kona Ice to cool them off.  What a great day!

First Grade Musical Program Ten Little Lady Bugs ( Momimhar posted on April 21st, 2018 )

Musical Program

It was a busy week for me this week. I volunteered at the Book Fair at DD’s school for three days and did a lunch cover for a 3rd Grade class Thursday.  Then it was darling daughter’s musical program yesterday.  She was shy telling me about it because she is not really into singing, she said. 🙂 There’s not much time for me to make an animal costume because DD said her part was a horse.  I was like, uhmm…what should I do? Good thing it was optional and K just wanted to wear Sunday best.

Gladly, dear husband and my brother-in-law made it on time before the program started. We had a great time. We are so proud of our little lady bug. 🙂
