Who do you get to fix stuff in your house that is broken?
Do you find carpenters or any repair specialist to fix stuff such as broken hinges, stuck doorknobs, leaking faucets or pipes, and other repairs you need in your house?
So far, I haven’t had a chance to seek a carpenter’s help on something broken in the house, nothing serious repairs I mean. If there is something broken and needs replacement, I first asked hubby if he can do it. So far he can do it, although he is not familiar with replacing the broken doorknob with a new one. ^_^
He doesn’t know how to remove the doorknob from the door. I was the one who taught him where to pick to be able to disassemble the knob. Peace, hubby! ^_^
Anyway, at times like these do you get carpenters to do this kind of house repairs or do you let your husbands do the repairs that needed to be fixed?
Any suggestions, anyone?
Actually we are thinking of ballet course. We are supposed to enroll in a nearby gym as soon as the ballet course is opened.
But last week, I asked if ballet classes is already available this summer. Unfortunately again, because it was the same last summer, the ballet instructor is not available. They said, she’s out for a vacation.
Since ballet is not available, the lady in the gym is suggesting to enroll her in belly dancing because they are offering it this summer. She also added, that there are other kids her age confirmed that they are attending the belly dancing summer course. I said I’ll think it over.
Well, I don’t think Little Zoie would be interested in belly dancing, right? Although I still need to ask her.
Now, that ballet is crossed out, what else can we do this summer? Hubby’s aunt suggested swimming lesson since she’s thinking of enrolling Yca, Little Zoie’s little aunt, to summer swimming courses.
Why not, right? So, I asked hubby’s aunt where are they enrolling Yca for the lesson and how much. They are still set to look where they are going to enroll Yca, which means I still need to think of other summer activities Little Zoie can do over the summer. :-(
Again, any suggestions?
Every parent concerned about their child’s health deals with one major cooking issue: Getting them to eat their vegetables. When a child sees the bright green spinach or vibrant orange from a carrot, they cringe in disgust. Instead of trying to shove veggies down the child’s throat, some parents have opted to sneak in a few veggies into meals, packing sweet potatoes into macaroni and cheese or stuffing meatballs with spinach.
Small alternatives can get kids those healthy vegetables you want them to ingest. For parents who want a more traditional approach, giving children a small cup of veggies with fruits can pack the one-two-punch parents want:
- Broccoli – Packed with fiber, and vitamins A and D, broccoli serves up a delectable treat that can mix well with mashed potatoes or a side of chicken and beef. Children who lack vitamin D because of not drinking enough milk can get their daily requirement with broccoli. Loaded with fiber, broccoli is considered one of the best vegetables for helping the digestive system. Parents concerned about the early childhood development of their son or daughter’s poor digestive system can pack in some broccoli into a diet to sort out any issues.
- Celery – Along with carrots and tomatoes, celery is considered a household vegetable, meaning most individuals tend to pick up this vegetable while at the supermarket. Reason being is that celery’s crunchy texture and rich flavor make it the perfect companion for most recipes. Packed with vitamin C, it’s no surprise this veggie makes its way to the top of the list as the healthiest vegetables around.
With its ability to reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol, children will find this vegetable a tasty treat to eat as a snack or with a meal. Just try to not stuff this veggie with peanut butter or smother it in ranch or blue cheese dressing.
- Asparagus – Aside from its disease fighting ability, asparagus also has been known to help with the digestive system, packing in a load of protein and fiber into your kids’ diet. You may want to chop up this veggie, sneak it into some foods or mix together with a salad to get your kids to eat it. If you’re a student pursing a culinary degree, try mixing and matching different foods to sneak in this healthy veggie to create new dishes.
Known for its bevy of vitamins packed into every bite, asparagus helps regulate blood sugar and fight heart disease. With diabetes on the rise, more children are becoming insulin-deficient. Asparagus has been known to be rich in insulin, packing in a healthy dose of the nutrient.
