hello to all my fellow dedicated bloggers around the globe. Welcome to My World! My name is Fe from the Land of Promise, Davao, Philippines. I been here in Colorado for almost 9 years now. Im 32 years old, happily married, full time mom and housewife. Im a quiet type of person that loves to smile and like simple things, im simple both inside and out, love to have happy peaceful life, friendly and sweet. I have 2 wonderful kids Dustin (8) and Dana (5). I love paintings, sewing, dancing, hiking, camping and travelling!
Its our last day staying in the hotel at Hampton Inn Hotel at Pueblo after our trip to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo last Monday. After dinner we decided to take the kids to the pool and just have fun. That enjoyment didn't last that long because my daughter, she's 7 years old, she had bad reaction to their pool cause of too much chlorine on the hot tub. She's having great time at first then suddenly she complain that her skin are itchy and she feels her skin is burning. So we took her out right away out in the pool, rinse her and took her to our room and put her on the tub for a cool bath. She started crying and shaking so we end up taking her to the Emergency Room at Park View Medical Center. Her back, arms and legs are all red. The nurse just give her a ice pack to cool her skin off. Then they give her ibuprofen or some kind of pain killer. It helps a little bit and she was really tired that night. Exhaustion cause her to sleep. We got back from our hotel around almost midnight. We stop by at City Market to get her some aloe vera gel and mist to help her skin. She keeps waking up at night, toss and turns but she sleep okay after. I just keep giving her that aloe gel and seems like it helps a lot. I'm glad its not really critical but as a parent, its scares us. We didn't expect this to happen and hopefully all the Hotels that has pool or even the recreation area or everywhere that has a swimmig pool, need to check the chlorine level that way it won't happen to other people or young kids like ours.
Swimming is fun and that's what we always looking forward especially when we go for a trip. My kids love swimming and its part of our travel plans. I read the news lately and they have the same problem too with their kids while swimming at the pool. They have chemical burns, bad reaction, rashes and itchiness after swimming. So really the excess chlorine is really the cause of all these bad reactions on the skin. So next time we just need to be careful and hopefully it wont happen again.
This is what she did last night. She made a drawing of her new toy named beauty spots. Its a big cheetah stuffed toy. Its big as her :-) and she did pretty good! She write "I Love You!" in her drawing. Isn't that sweet? She also add her favorite unicorn magnet next to it. She put on our fridge that way our friends and everyone can see it. Sweet!....
Dana's got a new wild toy, its her cheetah, she named her (beauty spots) but I called it (panther). We bought it yesterday at the moving sale, its a pretty good deal because we only pay $2 with this beautiful cheetah. Its clean and no tear and that all that matters to me when I buy used toy with my kids, make sure its not worn out or looks dirty. Actually she had two choices, the blue giraffe and this cheetah and they are the same size, but she said she'll do a mini mini mo to choose which one she prefer the best and then she decided to get this one and now she is very happy, she sleep with it and she carry it everywhere at the house. She don't usually get attached to much with a toy but this one is different. I'm glad she really like it.
My niece said that Dana seems grown up a lot. She looks taller in this photo. Isn't she cutie pie? She loves her heels! She walk like a lady too when she's wearing her first pair of shoes with heels. I love this little girl and I'm a proud mommy. Hope she stays the same! Why they grow up so fast! She just turn 7 last month February. She will be in second grade next fall! I still remember when she was a baby! Love this girl a bunch!
This is my daughter Dana and her friend Jordyn. They almost match with their outfit today at the meeting. They both wearing heels, flowery skirt, pink under shirt and they both wearing cover up vest, the difference is that dana wearing white and jordyn wearing black. But Dana love Jordyn! She look up to her and she give her a lot of hugs and kisses. She's a really great sister and her Grandma and my bestfriend here in the Valley. She's like a mother to me. :-)
We took the kids out to the Payless shoe store and buy theme shoes and guess what my little girl found? A sandal with a heel! So this is her first pair of shoes with heels. She did pretty good walking in it and she like to pose around and show off to everybody. She thinks she's already a big girl. She is so adorable when she does that. It cracks me up when she start posing her self and wanted me to take a photo of her. I bought her two dress shoes, one with the heels and the other one is flat in case she get tired of walking with that heels. So will see....
Here's the dragon drawing that my 6 year old daughter made. I was very surprise because when she woke up this morning, she went to the printer and grab some bond paper and start drawing. Here what she draw this morning. She said its an "Ice Fire Dragon", that's what she called it. She did pretty good! She put color to it and she showed it to me. She also put her name at the bottom and then she ask me to make her a crepes for breakfast this morning and after that she also ask if she can play speakaboos online. I am not sure if she is dreaming or what? I guess she dream a dragon last night and when she woke up, the first thing she does is to draw it. Pretty amazing isn't it? She's a good drawer for a 6 year old kid!
Here's the new project that me and my kids made. We used my daughter old tights. I saw the idea at Pinterest on how to make a stuffed toy using old socks or tights and this is what we came up with! It turns out very cute! They both love it, they name it "Moon Tail" and "Flop Ball". So adorable!
From a long wavy curl to a clean cut! We love Dustin's new haircut! We love his curly hair but this time, we decided to take him to the Saloon to get a new haircut. A little bit more shorter this time. He was laughing because he feel weird after when its done. He is not used to have a short hair, its been awhile since he got a short haircut. Usually he only get a trim all the time because we don't want to let go his curly hair. He wanted to join in the theocratic ministry school so he need to have a nice haircut to be look more presentable and more good looking of course. He love his new haircut now and he can't wait to join in the theocratic ministry school this week!
