    The leaf of Artocarpus camansi is so big that it can be used as a plate in the wilderness. It is in the same family of jackfruit and breadfruit so they have the same genus. Young fruits of this one we locally call ‘camansi‘  is used as a vegetable. The fallen leaf starts yellow and turns orange like the above. I love its color among the dry brown leaves on the ground.

    Prevent Kitty from Chewing Your Indoor Plants

    If your Fluffy keeps on chowing down your indoor plants, here’s the trick to keep him away. Wet a cotton ball with lemon juice and rub it around the rim of the planter.  The citrus fruit has a very strong scent that overwhelms cats’ keen sense of smell, so they’ll definitely stay away from your planters. Repeat every few days or until your kitty learns to stay away for good.

    For a Cough

    Posted on @ 3:59 pm

    nasal drops

    It’s flu season once again and those allergies bring about postnasal drip, which results in a persistent nighttime cough. Our twin girls are suffering from it and both are having difficulties sleeping. But, instead of giving them an OTC (over the counter) medicine right away, their pediatrician suggested we use a saline nasal rinse. I let one child lie down or tilt her head and I place the saline bottle tip into one nostril. Then I squeeze the solution into her nostril until it drains to the opposite nostril. I let her daughter blow her nose before repeating on the other nostril. This trick really helps them sleep through the night without coughing. And me? I have more time to do my online work and even take a peek at the musician’s friend to look for a guitar for my son.

    Review: Attipas Toddler Shoes

    Posted on August 16, 2014 @ 10:52 pm

    I first saw this pair of cute shoes when my daughter bought two pairs for her twin daughters when they were learning how to walk. They’re cute, colorful and comfortable. I was very surprised this afternoon when I received a pair of Natural Hurb shoes from Attipas.

    attipas 001

    attipas 003

    attipas 004

    Product Description

    Upper – Cotton/Polyester/Spandex/Yarn/Elastane Yarn
    Weight – S 65g, M 75g, L 95g, XL 105g

    Natural herb yellow is dyed with Amur Corktree. Amur Corktree is one of the most frequently used medical substances from the old days. It is known to have an outstanding effect for skin drying and sensitive skin. For contemporary people who pursue the well-being, natural dye is a great gift. This natural dye will be a present to children with skin trouble like atopy inflammation.

    My Thoughts

    attipas 015

    The shoes look really nice. The upper part, which is made of cotton is very soft and won’t irritate your child’s skin. The rubber soles are flexible, soft and non-slip. They also have tiny holes to release baby feet’s heat.

    attipas 013

    The insides are soft as well and I like that they are not too tight; those tiny feet are not cramped and they can breathe!

    attipas 018

    Another plus is the big toe box. Your little one’s toes are free to move, helping improve cognitive and motor development. The shoes are lightweight and super flexible, it’s just like wearing socks.

    Pros

    - Attipas enables steady and stable walking pattern, in terms of the leg joints.
    - Attipas helps brain development by feeling of the sole and to movements
    - Attipas corrects toddler’s walking behavior by evenly distributing foot pressure.
    - Attipas won’t dry baby’s skin and may even help heal skin inflammation.
    - They are nicely packaged and would make a great gift.

    Cons

    Attipas shoes are not recommended for machine washing and bleaching. You know how toddlers are magnet to dirts and stains will be tough to remove because you can only wash them gently with your hands.

    Recommendation

    Overall, the Attipas baby Walking shoes is perfect for babies and toddlers. They work well for out hot, humid weather because they are breathable, with those tiny holes to release heat and prevent sweaty, clammy and smelly feet. They are affordable, too and I highly recommend them.

    To order and for more information about Attipas Toddler Shoes, please like and follow them on Facebook.

    Disclosure: Product/s mentioned above were sent to me for free by Little Green for evaluation purposes. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own. All photos used in the review were taken by myself or family. Do keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you. However, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    Soothe Cough with Ginger

    Posted on July 30, 2014 @ 4:55 pm

    When the illness strikes your family, it’s easy to reach for the medicine cabinet and give your little one a doze to soothe her cough. But if you want to fight back cough with a drug-free strategy ginger can do the job. The spice promotes salivation, which helps calm a hacking cough.

    ginger

    A teaspoon of ginger juice can settle your child immediately. Simply make it by grating fresh ginger, then squeeze with your hand to get the juice. Store bought ginger juice will also do the trick. To make the juice more palatable, mix it with a bit of honey.

    Ginger is also a proven tummy soother, so if your kid has an upset stomach from the flu, the spice will offer double duty relief.
