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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
