What To Do If You Swallowed A Piece Of Chewing Gum

Two days ago, Alycia did something really silly — she tried to drink water when she was chewing on a piece of chewing gum and swallowed the gum together with the water! This girl of mine is not new to chewing on gums. But it […]

My blissful world came crushing down during a routine well-baby check up when Alycia was about 6 months old.  She was suspected of having Hip Dysplasia or clicky hips.  If not treated, this could lead to serious problem with one’s gait and position of the […]

Alycia is one girl who needs lots and lots of sleep.  She still needs to take her nap in the afternoon.  If she is deprived of a nap in the afternoon, she will get edgy and crabby.  Temper tantrums will break out when she is […]

Red Bean Ice Cubes

Everyone Loves Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe is one of the fruits that my daughters love very much. They are sweet and when eaten chilled, they are really refreshing. This is how Alycia loves to eat her cantaloupe: I’ve tried cutting the cantaloupe into easy-to-eat bite size but she prefers to […]

That’s How They Eat Pomelo

That’s How They Eat Pomelo

That’s how my gals eat pomelos: But my health freak baby didn’t quite like pomelos. After a few bites, she spat them out and played with them instead. I guess she does not like the slight tart taste of the pomelo, which is similar to […]
