Boudreaux's Butt Paste for your little ones

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

The long hours of using diapers are the main cause of diaper rash for babies.  Their skin is so tender that even a mild diaper rash will cause much pain and uncomfortable for the little ones.

I still remember at one time my daughter suffered from diaper rash, she couldn't sleep well, lost her appetite and becoming very cranky day and night, it was a very tiring and frustrating experience for us.  The problem was all solved when I was introduced to using Boudreaux's Butt Paste.  It soothed the irritated skin after applying it.  To avoid the recurrence of diaper rash, I applied it on my baby girl each time I changed her diaper.  It goes on and cleans off easily.   I always bring along a flip top cap handy travel size whenever I go travel.  

Boudreaux's Butt Paste was specially formulated by a pharmacist under the direction of a respected pediatrician to treat diaper rash and soothes irritated skin.  This effective skin protectant contains Peruvian Balsam and 16% Zinc Oxide with very pleasant scent, I believe it can also be used by adults who are using diapers.

This product was featured on several popular talk shows like Oprah Show, Today Show and Tonight Show as well as the People Magazine.

There are various sizes to choice from, 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz tubes, and 16oz jar being the largest size.  Visit Boudreaux's Butt Paste website today to receive a free sample.  Boudreaux's Butt Paste is the best solution in treating diaper rash.

Finding Free Online Learning Games with Educational Value

All a parent has to do is conduct a simple Internet search for children’s educational activities and they will discover that numerous free online learning games

Essentially, in order to recognize the educational value of free online learning games, you need to figure out what benefits each individual activity will offer your child. How can you make this discovery? The following are three tips you may find useful:

  • A website that offers valuable learning activities will indicate the types of skills that are improved by the game (i.e. reading, visualization, counting, comprehension, memory, verbal rehearsal, attention and focus, problem solving, etc.)
  • Look for games that have more than one level or stage. Children have different skill levels and in order for a game to be more than just entertaining it needs to provide kids with a manageable challenge. Kids need to think in order to boost their brain power.
  • Choose interactive games. A game that is interactive is exciting for a child to play because it makes them an integral part of the experience as it is dependent on the choices they make and the actions they take. These types of activities automatically help to improve a child’s hand-eye coordination skills and thought processing.

In essence, make sure the free online learning games you pick are quality educational tools. This can be found out with a little investigating.

Dad is coming home

Just a short note to welcome my dad home today.

Yes, my dad finally received a green light from the doctor yesterday allowing him home this morning. I was delighted to receive this good news from my brother upon arriving home yesterday evening. Everyone show a sign of relieve, popping in and out of the hospital is over for us after a week, seems like a long week.

This morning, brother Alfred, happily getting ready to fetch my dad from the hospital. I am sure there are some waiting to get the discharge paper work done in the hospital, payment and collection of medicine from the pharmacy, my father will only be home around noon time.

Now it's time to get ourselves ready for Christmas!

When Parent is ill

All of us in the family are taking turns popping in and out of the hospital since last Friday. My dad has been admitted to the hospital again after complaining of diarrhea and felt weak, scare of any eventuality, we decided that sending him to the hospital is the best choice, though my dad refuses to do so.

We hope my dad will be discharged after a day or two of observations but now into the 6th day there is still no indication of letting him out from the hospital. He has started to feel very uncomfortable, impatient and gets annoyed easily because of staying too many days in the hospital. No places are more like at home.

I noticed that many of the sickly old folks are taken care by the hired maid in the hospital now. The family members will only come visit whenever convenient due to work and family commitment. These maids are very eager to take care of a few of the sick people at the same time, basically they stay, eat, bathe and sleep in the hospital. We were approached by a couple of them who wanted to offer their service to take care of my dad, and their charges is RM70.00 a day (24 hours) which is pretty high. The nurses also encourage us to hire the maid so that their work will be lessen or no care needed from them because the hired maid will do most of the stuff for the patient. The nurses will only come round to take blood pressure reading, blood sugar test that kind of routine. A lot of cares are being neglected by the nurses.

I am surprise to know that some nurses do not even know what treatment the patient is going through at this point in time. For example, they just leave the pills on the side table asking my father to take his medicine after breakfast without knowing that his left side body is paralyzed, the pills on the right side table is beyond his reach.

Just hope that my dad will be discharged by tomorrow. We know that he misses his grand children at home very much and they miss their grandpa too..

My birthday 2010

I baked a birthday cake 4 days ahead of my birthday simply because my birthday falls on a working day, I would have no time to decorate the cake, I just want to relax and get myself ready for a birthday dinner at Pizza Hut right after I get back from work today.

My girls wanted to help me out on the cake. They did a good job though messed up a little. They are picking up the skills while I am pursuing my quest in baking and decorating cakes.

This is a Chocolate and coconut with peach layer sponge cake. A combination of chocolaty and tropical flavour in one, decorated with gum paste flowers. The cake is moist and soft. Recipe here.

We chose to dine at Pizza Hut because my girls love the food there, I like it too!!

My birthday is celebrated in a quite way, as it has always been, only the four of us. I am touched with lots of birthday wishes coming through to my sms and Facebook till the last half an hour of my birthday today, I really appreciate and thank all of you, my friends and cousins, for your thoughtfulness and taking the time in sending me your birthday wishes.
