When a family member or loved one is pregnant with multiples, the logistics of the situation can quickly become overwhelming. The mother may receive multiples of many items, with no way to differentiate what belongs to whom. This can lead to cross-contamination between the children if one of them is sick, as well as size confusion. Here are some ideas for the new mom of multiples to help keep items separated by child.
Engraved Key Tags
Key tags are great for marking individual diaper bags, storage bins of clothing and other child-specific gear. These can be especially useful if the kids are not all of the same gender or have an appreciable size difference.
Monogrammed Baby Books
When more than one child results from the same pregnancy, the temptation to create a single baby book can be overwhelming. However, the children deserve to have their own individual books to keep as adults. Sites such as GirlyTwirly.com have three-ring options, and hobby and baby stores also offer plenty of options for creating one-of-a-kind baby books.
Non-Toxic Permanent Markers
The new mom will want to label her thermometers, pacifiers, and medications with the baby’s initials to avoid confusion. This can save her a lot of frustration with passing on of colds and viruses. Having a few markers around is essential.
Moms of multiples face unique challenges. While every new mom needs piles of burp cloths, diapers and onesies, these particular items will help her keep things separated by which baby they belong to. This will cut down on frustration and cross-contamination between the children.
Shaving is something that most men do on a daily basis, especially men who have jobs that do not permit facial hair. Because men start to shave in their teens, they develop habits early on that determine the way they will shave for the rest of their life. The problem with this is the fact that many of these men are never shown how to shave properly. Because of this, they end up having regular skin irritations resulting from their poor shaving techniques. There is no reason that a man should have to endure these issues. With a little instruction and the right shaving products, any many can learn how to shave properly in not time at all. Here are some tips regarding how to get a better shave.
1. The proper use of heat and cold
Although it is one of the basic fundamentals of shaving, it is amazing how many men do not understand how to properly use heat and cold. It is much easier to shave your skin when it is hot and moist. Therefore, you might want to buy a special mirror that is designed to hang in the shower. Shaving while you are taking a shower is an outstanding way to protect your skin and avoid razor burn. If you prefer to do your shaving in a place that is a little more dry, you should shave immediately after getting out of the shower. This will ensure that your skin is still moist and your pores are open. After you completely finish your shave, use cold water to rinse yourself off. The cold temperature will lower the chance that your skin will become irritated.
2. Always shave with the grain
You should always be certain to shave in the direction that your hair is growing. This can sometimes be difficult in areas like the neck, where the hairs will grow in many odd directions. In the neck region, shaving with the grain may not always be possible, but do your best to go in the right direction. Shaving against the grain invites the possibility for skin irritation.
3. Use a moustache trimmer
If you decide to grow a moustache, do not use a typical beard trimmer to shape it. A moustache trimmer has advanced settings that allow you to do more things a regular beard trimmer can’t do. You should also apply moustache wax regularly.

I love to attend wedding events simply because weddings make my heart leap for joy knowing that there are still people, in this day and age, who believes in happy ever after or are still willing to tie the knot and be with someone they love for the rest of their lives. My classmates, John and Phoebe, invited me for their wedding celebration last year and I obliged.
I went to the event wearing this beautiful pink lace-dress and matched it with my open-toes high heels shoes from Payless (which I bought on SALE). I am not a make-up beauty junkee, but I prefer to have a light make up on when attending events. I am glad that I had this make-up for free because my friend who teaches make-up classes needs models for his students. So I got a free make-up session just before the wedding.
John and Phoebe had been college sweethearts and I have seen in my own two eyes their undying love for each other. I am glad that I attended their wedding rites because I know that what they have is true and the only thing missing in their lives are their wedding vows. CONGRATULATIONS John and Phoebe! Thank you for making us believe that true love still exist.
The first time that I learned that I was pregnant, I wished for a baby girl. And God gave me a baby boy. I wasn’t disappointed because babies are gift from heaven and it is not mine to ask for. Having a boy is great, but I cannot play house nor dolls with him. But still we were able to manage to keep our act together. We played ball, bikes and cars.
When I got pregnant for the second time, I prayed to God for a baby girl ag
ain. And He answered my prayer. I am now a mother of two, one boy and one girl. Having a baby girl is the best because I can play dress up with her. Couple t-shirts are so out of style because we can rock a mother-daughter outfit anytime. She loved to dress up and getting dolled up. But I always make sure that she will enjoy her childhood and that she will remember she has a happy and contented one. So I dont force her to wear sexy dresses that has become trendy right now, I want her to be a child and grow step by step so I am thankful to Lemon Kiss brand for kids because they offer great and fab dresses for little girls. Their line of clothing is one of the best in the country and I want only the best for my daughter. This is one of my favorite outfit from them. Perfect for my baby girl, it will definitely suit her age.
This stylish dress and a lot more could be viewed in Lemon Kiss’ Facebook Page. So what are you waiting for? Check out their page and you’ll see what I am talking about.
Tried my luck in sending this photo to Top Gear PH Facebook page last year and I am glad that it is one worthy photo to be posted on their page.
This is not mine, this is my Father’s monster car (which I fondly call it). The sticker Maldito is a sticker given by my brother’s friend and we have a lot of it posted in our cars. All of my brother’s friends had it at the back of their pick-up trucks.
If you will find this photo in Top Gear PH’s Facebook Page you’d probably say that I am one tough lady because I managed to not cry over some hurtful comments posted by other netizens on the photo. Some even thought that I am a transgender. Oh well, you can’t please everybody and just because I have long legs and muscled arms (as what other netizens have noticed) made them think that I am a man. But then again, Thank You TOP GEAR PH for making me famous! just for one day! hahaha
