Shoes as your Child Grows


As your child develops, the need for shoes becomes more critical. You don’t just need shoes, you need the right shoes. They need to be roomy enough for your child to wiggle his toes, but not so loose that he trips over his own feet.

As he starts to walk, he won’t be steady on his feet. The right shoes can help this, but the wrong shoes will inhibit his ability to walk. The more he falls, the more he’ll lose confidence in his ability to walk on his own.

The more frustrated he gets with his shoes, the less he’ll want to wear them, making it a daily struggle for you to put them on. Keep shoes off of his feet as much as you can to enable him to grow and learn specially as your kids start school.

When the need for shoes arises, there are a lot of reputable brands with shoes to fit every kind of foot. Stride Rite and Bobux kids shoes have both been around for decades and have done the research needed to know exactly how to foster growth in the feet while still protecting them.
  
Unfortunately, these shoes won’t cut it as your child grows into the adolescent and teenage years. You’ll have to find other brands that can continue to protect your child’s feet and foster the growth they need throughout their childhood and puberty.

You need to pay close attention to growth spurts and other factors that could influence the need for new shoes. Find a local store that can help measure your child’s feet and put them in the right pair of shoes for their size, shape, and gait.

It’s important that your child be comfortable or their feet won't’ develop right, leading to more problems later on. Especially if your child plays a sport, their feet need to be protected in a way that doesn’t cause long term damage to the bone structure or integrity of the feet that will carry them throughout the rest of their life.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
