How Professionals are Better Friends that “Friends”

Life has always been a bittersweet. At times when you think that everything is going good and is going great, something is always bound to happen that would somehow remind you again that this is a roller coaster ride. We will never be always on top and we will never be always just happy and worry-free. As a mother, I have accepted this fact for a long time now. Life has always been fun for someone who grew up in a family that is loving, caring, happy and above all, financially-able. This meant that I get what I wanted and needed, plus more. Thus, when it was my turn to be that person who took care of the finances of the household, I was very much unprepared to handle it. I was always went over the budget, thinking that it was OK since there is a steady income flow. I also was always too kind to the neighbors and friends who went to me for financial help. I found it too difficult to say no or to even negotiate with people because I feel like once I declined their call for help, I am an evil person. It was really […]

The Nuisance that is Headache

Since I was young I have been very active. That is until about four years ago when I started having trouble with bad headaches and neck pain. It seems that I could only get one or two good days a week without terrible upper back pain and really bad headaches. They had over time become so intense that I couldn’t do my job as well as I could before. Sometimes I would go to play with my two year old son and end up just laying on the floor because it was a position in which I could get some relief. I couldn’t spend my life laying down. In the beginning I took Advil. I did that until it ate holes in my stomach. The doctor said I had four ulcers cause by NSAIDS weakening the lining of my stomach. So I knocked the daily dosage down from 1600 mg to 200 mg and just dealt the pain. This wasn’t going to work and I started doing some research on the topic. I found this page that describes an awesome method for dealing with a type of sinus infection that cause headaches and even neck pain that actually did help […]

When It All Began

Let me back track just a little and talk about the very first baby of my life. Let me share how it was when it was just beginning (not knowing it can turn crazy fun in the next years to come). When I found out that I was going to have a baby, I was excited beyond anything else I have ever felt in my entire life. My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for years since our marriage and we have been consulting different doctors to help us make it a reality. Finally, after years of trying and waiting, we are blessed to have the angel we have all been waiting for. I was so excited when I heard the news that every day since then, we have been buying baby stuffs and we have been planning on the look and feel of the nursery room for the baby. Our house had three rooms in it and we plan to convert one into the nursery room while the other one is our room and the third the guest room. We were having a baby girl and so I was even happier to design the room […]

Having Babies And Toddlers

It is not new knowledge that babies are still incapable of doing things on their own. They do not even have the capacity to speak just yet. Their bodies are very much reliable on their instincts and these are not even that honed yet. It is for this reason that parents should take extra efforts to guide their babies throughout this entire stage. They are highly dependent on adults and as parents; it is our responsibility to make sure that no harm comes to our babies. Eyes and ears should be set for our babies all the time, even as they sleep. This innocence in their actions and cries and tears is what makes our babies very charming and adorable, however, it is also what makes them very fragile and susceptible to harm and health hazards. As parents, it is our responsibility to keep them from getting into danger. There are several ways where we can ensure that nothing very damaging ever happens to our little angels. For one, we could keep the house in best condition. The home is the best and safest place that your child will ever be. It is the place where they should be most […]
