One way to encourage your child’s interest in nature is by going on outdoor trips. These can range from hikes on walking trails to vacations that include camping and fishing in the woods. Have your child help select supplies and equipment for your dog who will accompany you on your trips. Give your child the job of caring for the dog. Be one of the families who takes their dog along when they go on extended journeys; some bring them on skiing trips and outdoor vacations – even on exciting activities like whitewater rafting and canoeing. Involve the kids in selecting items for your pet when preparing for your trip. Let them find the Groupon promo codes and pick the items to order.
Throwing a great party is something that takes quite a lot of planning and a little bit of luck. There are so many contributing factors that add up to a legendary party that it can be difficult to manager them all. Parties not only can impact your personal life in a positive way but also your professional life if you throw a company party.
Looking good for your party is the most important thing you can do as many people talk about what the hosts of the party were wearing. Make sure that you wear something that accentuates your positive features rather than some of your less desirable features. Going out and getting your hair done or other beautifying processes can make your skin glow for the party. If you aren’t sure where to look just search your city and what you want done. Chicago Facial is the perfect example of a local search that helps you find somewhere to get a facial. Read the rest of this entry »
As a child, I never really had the chance to get acquainted with any chores at home because most of our vacant time is spent in our small food business. That is why I regret not knowing how to grow a plant or having a garden at home. Even until now I find hard to even grow a simple plant.
I think Bella is growing to be my total opposite. As early as one year old, she has shown fondness in all the chores she sees at home. I think this is due to the influence of my parents who serve as Bella’s role models.
Aside from sweeping the floor or assisting Mommy in the laundry, Bella also loves to do gardening with Daddy. She usually assists Daddy in his small vegetable garden at home. Although she would be sweating all over, Bella seems to be very happy and proud whenever she could contribute in any chores at home.
I am just so proud of my little girl. She’s growing to be very smart and responsible. Thanks be to God!

Bella will be turning three years old this coming November and I just can’t help but get a little sentimental remembering her first few days as a baby. Because of her, our life has become even more meaningful and filled with many first experiences.
At her age, Bella can now identify the letters of the alphabet although she is a little bit confused with “E” and “F”. She is also comfortable using the potty trainer and of course, she acts as if she knows everything around the house especially when helping out with the chores. She’s actually demanding and we often referred to her as our “boss”.
When asked about what she wants to receive on her birthday, she would answer an “ABC” referring to the wooden alphabet she saw in one of the videos in YouTube, and an orange bike. When Tatay heard her, he jokingly said, he would buy a knee scooter for her instead because she already have a bike but she answered she want an orange one because her old bike is not orange but yellow.
Now, tell me who’s the boss in the house? Hehehe

As I told you before, our little helper at home loves her role as assistant in all the chores inside the household. Have I told you that her most favorite chore is doing the laundry? She was having fun playing with water and most of the time, playing and blowing the bubbles. When Mommy is busy with the washing machine, she would take every chance to get herself wet. Mommy would usually do the laundry using the washing machine but when the old washing machine gave up on her, she had no choice but to do the laundry manually.
Bella and Mommy are buddies and they would go to the mall and shop together. So when they got the chance to look for a lock washer to buy, they went to the nearby shop without letting us know. And when her washing machine is finally ready to serve her, Bella and Mommy are back to their favorite chore, playing while doing the laundry.
