Father's Day 2020 Quarantine Edition

If there's a Mother's Day 2020 ECQ Edition, there's Father's Day 2020 Quarantine Edition too.

Celebrating special occasions in the house is the new normal and we need to get used to it. It is safer than dining out right? Besides we can't take our children out too. So this Father's day, unlike the previous years, we celebrate it at home.

Our not so little boy was so thoughtful to make a donut cake for his Dad. Look at that little boy's look of admiration towards his Dad.

When he woke up he told me he will get a donut and put candle on it to give to his Daddy. Kasi daw iginawa naman daw sya ng Daddy ng pancake noong birthday nya. Such a loving boy!

It was a Sunday and we spent the whole morning cleaning and organizing things at home. Daddy A cleaned his garden naman.

I thought of just ordering food, however, fully booked na mga food deliveries around. Craving for pancit malabon pa naman. I should have done it the day before pala. My bad!

That's why even if the preggy mom was not feeling well, I got up and cooked. In less than an hour, I finished cooking spaghetti. Our little boy naman cooked siomai, shanghai and hotdog. Then we still have donuts, soda and juice in the refrigerator. There, we have our Father's Day lunch.

For dinner, I ordered liempo with free kimchi (hindi sya kasi umabot sa lunch so dinner na nadeliver). We have sweet corn, left over shanghai and siomai, lettuce from Daddy A's garden and Tiramisu.

Good food is always at home right? That's how we celebrate Father's day. Actually, is not about the food. It's the thoughts that counts. Agree?

To my best half, Happy Fathers's Day. We are so lucky to have you especially in these trying times. You make my pregnancy journey easier. Thank you for always cooking for us. For understanding my mood swings. For thinking about us first. For always taking care of us. You have loved me even when I am not lovable at all. Time tested us so many times but we always choose to stay that makes our love much stronger. There's no perfect relationship and the storms we brave are tests that will just make us better. Soon we will be four. God is so good for blessing us with another bundle of joy. He definitely has the best plan for us. Let's keep our faith in Him stronger. May God blessed you with good health and keep you safe always. We love you so much.

You've finally made the decision to move across the country and you couldn't be happier. The hardest part is over and now you've got to prepare. Whether you're renting, or have a home to sell, you've got your work cut out for you. Here are four things you need to accomplish before making that big move.

Get Organized

Before doing anything, sit down and make a large master list. Arranging your tasks by weeks or months can help you get organized. Include fix-it projects at home before you sell, a date to list your home, when to have a yard sale and decisions regarding your job.

Secure a Moving Company

Another item you'll need on your list is when to secure a local moving company Aurora CO. Moving companies are the best way to move your furniture and important effects, because they know exactly how to maneuver heavy and fragile items.

Get Your Bills Online

Remember to submit a change of address form to the post office and then sign-up for online payments. You'll be able to access them from anywhere and they won't end up in someone else's mailbox.

Sell and Donate

Cleaning out and getting rid of old things always feels so good and now's the time to go full speed ahead. Donate items you no longer use and decide what you can sell. Make some extra moving money by having a yard sale, or an estate sale if you have major baggage.

Congratulate Yourself

Fresh starts are the best, so congratulate yourself on finally making the big decision to move. With a little hard work and organization, you'll be well on your way to starting a new life.

What’s The Cargo? 3 Uses for Trailers

Photo: ©Carolyn Franks - STOCK.ADOBE.COM

Commercial trucks and trailers have been the subject of much curiosity and debate for commuters and road-trippers. What are those giant vehicles hauling, anyway, and why are there so many of them on the road? You might be surprised to know that semi-trailers can transport everything from clothes and animals to red bean chili and apple pie.

Fabric and Furniture

Have you ever wondered where clothing and furniture stores get their supplies? If the orders are smaller or if they're going to boutique stores, they might be shipped in boxes from individual retailers. Larger orders might be transported to your favorite department store on a rental trailer from commercial trailer rental company everett wa.

Food and Spices

If you’ve just purchased a jar of spaghetti sauce, you can assume that a farmer, an individual small business, or a semi-trailer made its way to your store. Groceries come from a wide variety of sources, but semi-trailers sometimes make their way across the entire country carrying meats, seafood, vegetables, and boxed goods for you to enjoy.

Farm Animals

If you’re not from a rural area or one that has a reputation for transporting a large number of animals (think the horse industry in Kentucky), you might be surprised to see a cargo of farm animals on the road right next to you. Ventilated horse trailers carry large animals like horses, cows, sheep, and pigs.

If you need a trailer of your own for your small business, farm, or bakery, you can consider renting or leasing one of your own to get your product from point A to point B. It might not be an option you’ve considered before, but renting a semi-trailer for your own use could save you time and money in the end if you’re making a lot of smaller trips to the same location.

Matthew Andrei's 10th Birthday Quarantine Celebration

Last week, our little boy celebrated his 10th birthday. Since we are still in we are still in General Community Quarantine, he had a quarantine birthday celebration. In short, wala syang bisita unlike his 9th birthday and the previous celebration, where my in-laws were here. Also, my father-in-law passed away last March so this year's celebration is so different.

Anyway, even if it's the same celebration you used to have, we made sure he will enjoy his birthday kahit kaming tatlo lang. So Daddy set up this.

Daddy A cooked pancake too as his surprise cake.

Since we have work, celebration started late afternoon. Daddy A made sure he bought all the food he loves.

See that smile?

He asked for pizza and fried chicken.

Our little boy is a pizza monster.

We ordered this baked macaroni too.

I told him to dress up for our photo ops but he refused to.

Mukhang gutom na sya kasi, haha.

The night before his birthday, he told me wala man lang daw syang gift. We can't go to toy store so I asked Daddy A to buy him Sharpie pens, graphing notebook and drawing books.

When he saw the paper bag, he can't hide his excitement and wanted to try them right away.

This boy is so mababaw. Kahit simpleng ballpen matutuwa na sya. I am happy that he is not materialistic. I also thank God for keeping him safe and healthy always.

"To our not so little boy, always remember that we are here for you no matter what. We will support and love you in whatever endeavor you will take. I know you will be a good kuya. I will never love you less anak. You will always be our first love. We love you to bits anak."

Dealing With Wisdom Teeth in Teens

When your child reaches their teenage years, braces aren't the only dental treatment you may be dealing with. Most people need to have their wisdom teeth removed in their late teen or young adult years. Failure to do so can lead to tooth alignment problems, pain and even infection. A dentist will keep an eye on this area and offer recommendations for when it's time to take action. Here's how you can be prepared to deal with the situation.

Meet With an Oral Surgeon

Talk with a glen ellyn dental care professional to start the process. At your initial consultation, you can expect an examination along with X-rays to determine the best course of action. In some situations, it may not be necessary to remove the wisdom teeth. However, if it is important or beneficial to do so, surgery will be scheduled.

Plan for Ample Recovery Time

During wisdom tooth removal, the patient is usually heavily sedated, often times completely unconscious. It may take some time for the sedatives to wear off, even though patients are usually sent home right away once the procedure is complete. While some people only experience minor pain and swelling for a day or two, others may require about a week of down time to recover. This usually depends on the number and size of the teeth removed and the depth of the roots.

Practice Healthy Home Care

Use ice packs and medication to manage pain and swelling as directed until the discomfort subsides. It's also important to keep the area clean to prevent an infection from developing. Another important practice is to avoid using a straw or spitting too often during healing. This can prohibit clots from forming and may lead to dry sockets, a very painful condition. If this occurs, the oral surgeon or dentist may prescribe a pain reliever and pack the incision site.

Having wisdom teeth removed is a normal part of adolescence. By knowing what's ahead, you can prepare for smoother process.

Keeping Your Newborn Healthy and Happy in the Summer

photo source

Summertime offers fun for families of all ages, and if you've been spending your time indoors with your newborn baby, you both might be excited to take walks in a park and enjoy getting some sun. That being said, babies are a bit more sensitive to changes in temperature and direct sunlight than adults or even older kids, so it's important that you understand how to keep your baby safe and comfortable even as you're looking for fun outdoor activities to do together. Here are just a few of the ways that you should think about keeping your newborn healthy and happy during the summer.

Help your baby stay cool and comfy with the right stroller and accessories.

If you're headed anywhere outside with your baby, the odds are high that you're taking their stroller. Strollers are great for transporting your baby without requiring you to hold it, but they're also for much more than transportation. With the right accessories and features, your stroller is actually an excellent way to keep your infant cool and comfortable, even on the hottest days of the year.

One of the most important features for keeping your baby cool in its stroller during summertime is a shade. Some strollers even come with shades that have a flap and clear plastic, so that you can quickly check on your baby without having to completely retract the shade that's keeping them cool. Buying a portable stroller fan is another great idea if you want to add more breeze to your baby's ride. Stroller fans have all sorts of features, from a rechargeable battery with a USB cable to traditional models that use AA batteries. Thankfully, Stroller Buzz ranked the top stroller fans so you don't have to be inundated with the options and can just choose the best stroller fan for your baby stroller.

Don't skip regular check-ups!

Part of ensuring that your newborn is growing and developing normally is taking it to monthly checkups. Especially if you're planning on spending more time outside, you'll want to make sure that your child is up to date on its immunizations and vaccinations, since the chances are high that it will be exposed to more germs outdoors than it was indoors. If money's a bit tight, you may want to look at other options for family health insurance plans to make sure you're really getting the most bang for your buck when it comes to the insurance covering these check-ups. A website like Health Quote Gurus can help you compare your options, whether you're looking for a PPO plan or an HMO to help cover your family's medical costs.

Be careful with sunblock and bug spray.

If you're headed outdoors as a parent, you likely have a routine that involves sunblock in the daytime and some form of bug spray in the evening. While this is totally fine to do as an adult, babies are much more sensitive to chemicals, so you need to be particularly judicious in what you choose to use if you're going to be touching your baby at all. Since infants have thinner skin than children or adults, they are much more likely to absorb harmful chemicals if you apply sunscreen or bug spray directly to them.

If you have a cloth stroller, consider just spritzing some bug spray on the exterior if you're worried about your baby getting bitten by mosquitoes. If you absolutely must apply sunscreen to your infant, make sure that it's free of harmful chemicals that could irritate your baby's skin or cause further health concerns. If you're unsure about which products are best, be sure to bring it up with your pediatrician at your next appointment.

The Modern Family: 4 Non-Traditional Ways To Start Yours

Surrogacy, infertility treatments, family, home, health, conceiving, family planning
photo source

The days of all families looking the same are long gone. Which is great news for people who want to start a family but don't fit that stringent mold. Whether you are unable to conceive naturally, you are in a same-sex relationship and want to have children, or if you are a single person who has decided it is time to start a family, there are options. Take time to learn what options are available to you and then decide which one fits your unique situation the best.

1. Adoption and Foster Care

Adoption not only gives you a chance to start a family, but it also gives a child a fresh start in life. If you are looking to adopt an infant, you can talk to private adoption agencies that provide housing and medical care for expectant moms. Adopting out of the foster system is another route.

2. In Vitro Fertilization

If you are unable to conceive naturally, another choice is in vitro fertilization. This involves harvesting and fertilizing eggs and then implanting them inside your uterus. Many people who choose IVF have to undergo several treatments before they successfully conceive.

3. Surrogacy

Using a surrogate mother is another option. It is an increasingly attractive option for men in same-sex relationships. In addition to the fee paid to a surrogate, you are generally responsible for all of the medical care costs for both the expectant mother and baby.

4. Sperm or Egg Donation

Some people choose to involve a donor to the conception phase. This may be an anonymous donation, or you may choose to ask someone you already know. This is especially attractive for same-sex couples and singles who are ready to start a family.

Not all families get started in the same way. Whether you choose to adopt a child, go through IVF treatments or use a third party reproductive process, it is love and acceptance that truly makes you a family.

3 Key Landscape Maintenance Tips and the Tools You'll Need for the Job

The equipment you need to maintain your lawn depends on both the size of your lawn and the size of your budget. Luckily, most items are readily available at your local hardware store. Here are three key landscape maintenance tips and the tools you need to complete them.

1. Cut and Trim Your Lawn

There are plenty of things in a lawn that need to be cut or trimmed back. Lawn mowers are essential items for cutting. The most common types are rotary and wheel. A rotary mower is always powered, and performs well on long, uneven grass. A reel mower may be manual or powered and gives a neat cut on a good-quality lawn. A half-moon edger is useful for trimming edges and for cutting and shaping sod. Finally, consider purchasing long-handled edging sheers, which will allow you to neaten the edges of an established lawn quickly and easily, and without danger of straining your back.

2. Maintain Your Landscape

Since your landscaping will require routine maintenance, you’ll need a few key tools to keep everything looking fresh and green. A garden fork can be used to prepare the ground before a lawn is seeded or sodded. A fork also comes in handy for aerating small, compacted areas in autumn. A spring-tined rake is useful for picking up leaves and small twigs. Sometimes, landscape maintenance requires an extra level of care. This usually depends upon the size of your yard, as well as just how good you want your landscape to look. A professional provider of Lawn Care Lakewood CO can handle the job of routine maintenance, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your beautiful grounds!

3. Water Your Greenery

Watering is essential for keeping your home’s landscaping in beautiful shape. Unless you have a tiny yard, a garden hose is a must-have item. An oscillating sprinkler can deliver water evenly over a rectangular area or a rotating sprinkler, which covers a circular area, will make watering your lawn an almost effortless task. For an alternative approach to watering, consider installing olla pots throughout your garden. These terra-cotta vessels, which only need to be filled about once per week, will slowly provide water to the roots of your plants, allowing for slow and steady water absorption.

Bringing your landscape up to par will enhance the overall enjoyment you receive from your home. By following these tips, you’ll be ready to make your landscape look better than ever!

Consider Nearby Necessities

Is it a 20-minute drive to the nearest grocery store? Does your community have local physicians, dentists and veterinarians serving those in your area? While some people are willing to sacrifice these amenities for a more private living experience, families often need to know they can get their essential goods and services without sacrificing their entire day to do so. It may be helpful to take the necessary steps to encourage business growth in your area to attract potential buyers and renters.
