Wonderful Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 in Holidays | Comments Off on Wonderful Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

Father’s day is right around the corner this Sunday to be exact and we’re sure you are looking for the perfect way to celebrate your special man this year. Whether it be your husband, father or boyfriend there are a number of ways you celebrate father’s day! Fortunately, no one has to settle for the boring traditional option of taking your dad out to dinner. Not that there is anything wrong with that but why not try something more creative?


Comedy Show

Does your dad enjoy watching the comedy network? Everyone enjoys a good laugh every now and then. And after working those long hours dad’s due for some relaxation and laughter. Find a live comedy show somewhere close by and enjoy the non-stop smile on his face.

Picnic

Yep, I said it, a picnic. They are a great way to relax and enjoy the great outdoors without having to stray too far from home. Picnics are relaxing and really a lot of fun. Unfortunately, they are not something that people do very often. Break that cycle and have a picnic. Find a nice park, lake or creek in your community and enjoy a simple bite to eat with dad.

Sports Game

Sports may not be for everyone, but if your father likes sports you cannot go wrong with tickets to a game. If you aren’t into the sport maybe give him two tickets and sent him off with a friend so they can both enjoy it (manly style).

When it comes down to the best way to celebrate father’s day depends on what your dad likes. Remember that this is a day to honor and appreciate your father. Whatever you and your father end up doing, it is important to make sure it is something that you know he is going to love. Sometimes a hand-made card is enough. I use to give my father rocks from our garden every year for a while. I’m pretty sure he loved those! J

Baby’s Own Room LOVES fun dads so show your dad (or special man in your life) how much you care and do something fun and creative. Happy Father’s Day!

Children’s Room Decor: Lighting

Posted by on Jun 5, 2013 in Kids Room Decor | Comments Off on Children’s Room Decor: Lighting

Children’s room decor is one of many aspects of being a parent that is really enjoyable. There is nothing more heartwarming that seeing that light in your child’s eyes when they see their newly decorated bedroom for the very first time. A child’s bedroom is a great place for you to experiment with different colors and different lightening. Children really love having bold, bright, and unique bedrooms. A bright, bold, and colorful room really reflects the liveliness of your child’s personality.

Naturally, there needs to be a balance and there is such thing as too much bright and bold. You want your child to have fun and enjoy their bedroom during the day. But, you also want to make sure that the room is not so bright and lively that they are not going to be able to get to sleep at night. This is why it is important to find the perfect blend of bold colors and subtle accents.

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to splash a little extra color in the room is to get lamp shades that are a specific color or to get colored light bulbs. The cool thing about either option is depending on the age of your child they are going to be completely enamored by the different colors that illuminate from the lamp.

Zig Zag Children's Room DecorWhen it comes to decorating your child’s bedroom it is important to not let yourself overlook the power of neutral colors. If your child is afraid of the dark white is going to be your favorite color. Even in a dark room when all of the lights are off, the white areas of the room will still give the room a little bit of light. There is nothing wrong with investing in night lights. But, something a little more creating and fun would be to consider adding glow in the dark stickers to the decor of your child’s bedroom. Glow in the dark stickers are another fun children’s room decor options, they light up when the lights are out. Leaving your child to wonder how on EARTH they do that!?

The most important thing for you to remember when decorating your child’s room depending on their age it should be a little more about your child than yourself. Include your child in the process and allow them a role in deciding what colors, lamps, or types of furniture and other types of room decor for their new room. You’ll be surprised how happy your child will be over getting to pick something so small such as what style or color the lamp shades are.

Fit Pregnancy: Prenatal Vitamins and Eating Healthy

Posted by on Jun 3, 2013 in Fit Pregnancy | Comments Off on Fit Pregnancy: Prenatal Vitamins and Eating Healthy

Fit Pregnancy

Prenatal vitamin supplements are important during pregnancy because they provide the vitamins and minerals that both the mother and the baby needs during pregnancy. They are important because they protect against diseases that can be caused by deficiencies. They also ensure that you baby goes through a normal development process. Ideally, you should start taking prenatal vitamins a few months before you conceive your baby. Chances are pretty good that you already know that prenatal vitamins and eating healthy are important for both you and your baby. But, have you ever thought about what happens when you do not take your prenatal vitamins?

Consequences for the Baby

Your baby may not develop properly without receiving proper levels of vitamins and minerals. The lack of certain vitamins and minerals can also cause birth defects to occur. It may also result in premature labor and birth.

Consequences for the Mother

Your body is going to pull from its own source of nutrients and vitamins in order to meet the baby’s needs first. It is fairly common for a mother to suffer from deficiency before the baby is even affected by it. Some of the more common deficiencies include calcium and iron.

Prenatal vitamins may provide a lot of the vitamins and nutrients that you need, but they do not always supply all of the, For example, 100 percent of the calcium that a pregnant women needs is not provided in prenatal vitamins. This is partly to do with the fact that it would make the supplement too big and somewhat awkward to consume. A lot of moms-to-be highly recommend adding vitamin D and omega-3 supplements in addition to taking prenatal vitamins every day. A separate calcium or iron supplement may also be needed, but that is usually a decision made by your doctor.

Leafy greens, colorful fruits and veggies are loaded with all kinds of good nutrients that your body will thank you for. Baby’s Own Room promotes a healthy diet for a healthy baby and a speedy recovery for mom. Eating healthy before, during and after pregnancy is a win-win for both mom & baby and maybe dad too.
