Care and feed

Getting out of a chair

Friday, November 18th, 2011 3:00 pm | By Stephanie Woo

I’ve been teaching Brooke how to get out of the dining chair by herself. When she is done eating, I would push her chair out a little and then help her scoot her little bottom forward till her feet land on the floor. She’s finally gotten the hang of it by herself!

“See, I did that all myself!” — Brooke at 10 months

Some days I just don’t know what to feed my kids. Maybe other moms have the same problem so I thought I’d share today’s menu to inspire some new ideas. What was your menu-du-jour? Please share with us in the Comments session!

Breakfast

All organic ingredients: raspberries broken into little pieces, cut-up bananas, yogurt and a couple o’s

Lunch

Took left-over rice…

cooked in some water to soften the rice…

added some organic chicken soup I made for my husband and me the night before (in the best slow cooker)…

Rice with chicken soup, chicken thigh meat, and 1-inch pieces of steamed organic carrots

Dinner

Organic sweet potato baked for an hour at 400F. Open and serve.

Walking on Tiptoes

Monday, October 10th, 2011 3:20 pm | By Stephanie Woo

Why is my child walking on tiptoes?

It is very common for toddlers to walk on tiptoes when they start walking. A couple weeks into it, they will start walking on the soles of their feet. If they don’t, it generally means they have very tight and short Achilles Tendon, that’s why they can’t put their foot flat. The best thing to do is to massage their Achilles tendon. Start with a gentle massage and then get a little deeper. If it is very severe, the child might need surgery. However, start with a good massage and see if that helps.
