Winter is here!!

To most of the people out there, this is the time of joy, the time to celebrate a new year. Now, as the only male in a family of six, trust me when I say that I understand how tough it is to care for the baby during this time of the year. It’s even worse if you are in it for the first time.

We all know that the baby is such a fragile creature. They won’t eat, play, or even sleep if there is something bugging them. How funny when people try to invent a dog’s translator when there is none for a baby.

But hey, we are here to share the tricks. 99% of the time the infant is annoying just simply because the sensation is wrong. That’s why they won’t let go of their mother, that’s why moms get exhausted carrying the little devil all day. What to do? Get them something that can provide the gentleness and the comfort to soothe the baby, so their mother can be free for a sec.

There you go, I have the best honest review of baby swing in hand, go check them out.

Some of you might say “hey, I sleep with the baby just fine.” Come on, then how could the baby swing is a must-have of every single family in this country? Sleeping with the baby is as good as sleeping with a ton of diamonds which could be vaporized any second. I watched my mom jolted up every 10 minutes sleeping with my sister in the hospital bed. I hope I have made some sense.

Now, down to the second big matter: the mother’s sleep. You bet, we do have a treat. This product has helped my mom recover rapidly after giving birth. It’s all-natural and absolutely no side effects. That’s not all, the dose is just strong enough to pair you with the sleeping god but he won’t hold you there, up in the sky. You will still able to wake up in case of an emergency with no headache, no dried throat.

The drowsiness would still linger a little depending on how many sleep hours you got under your belly. Well, nothing is perfect, but this thing is the closest. Check out Unisom SleepGels, Nighttime Sleep-aid, Diphenhydramine HCI, 100 SoftGels. I hope it helps. 🙂

How To Buy An Indoor Ping Pong Table For Your Home

If you are planning to buy indoor ping pong tables for your house, you must be aware of its features and how to choose the best one.

As a novice in this game, you should be keen on what type of table you will buy.
Buying an expensive table tennis table with many accessories can be tempting but not necessary.

You must set your mind on how to buy an indoor ping pong table that is affordable for you.

Aside from the price, you must also consider the size, weight, and material. All these factors will determine how efficient and effective your ping pong table is.

The size of the table:

The size of the ping pong table

The first thing you have to consider is the size of the table. It must fit perfectly in your designated space, such as your living room or game room.

If you have a huge space, then you can choose a standard size and arrange it in the corner of the room so that all your friends can comfortably surround and watch the matches.

Most tables come in standard sizes, so if you are just starting to play, it would be best to buy a table that fits your current skills and experience level.

You can even play ping pong in any open space within your house. For example, you can play with an outdoor table tennis table in the backyard by the pool. As for the mini ping pong table, you can play in the attic.

When choosing the right table, you must consider the space given to you. Aside from the size, the weight, and the appearance, these three factors are the most important when choosing the best table for you.

The weight:

The weight of the table is also important. If you have limited space, post-play storage will be regular. If the table is too heavy, storage will be a nightmare. How do you have enough strength after games to be able to clean and store it? So if you are in this situation, I recommend buying a foldable table with light or moderate weight.

If you have ample space or a game room in the basement, that’s great. You can choose any weight as well. Your table tennis table will be placed in a fixed position. It doesn’t take much effort to get it out. You can immediately play a match with your friends.

But that doesn’t mean you won’t have to do anything after the game. You should still clean your ping-pong table because it was covered with sweat and dirt. Failure to clean the table after each match will degrade the table very quickly.

The material:

The next factor to consider when buying is the material the table is made from. There are tables made of plastic, metal, or wood. If you want something more unique, then why not opt for an acrylic table?

The acrylic table is durable and won’t easily break, especially if you are using it daily. It is very unique and luxurious (can be seen as an expensive piece of furniture in your home)

If you have a lot of money and like something new. Acrylic ping pong tables are definitely a good investment, no matter what kind of space you have.

The next question to ask yourself is, “How to find an indoor ping pong table?”

A good way to start is to go to your local sports store with a dedicated ping-pong section. The staff can help you choose the right table that suits your needs and the basic accessories to get started as the good quality net and posts set, a racket. Besides, they can show you some models that they have. You can also search the internet for some models to compare prices.

Easy assembly:

How to buy an indoor ping pong table is only half the process. Once you have made the purchase, you need to decide on how to assemble your new table. This is definitely a step by step process, so do not be afraid to ask questions when you’re doing your shopping.

There are plenty of instructional materials available online or in sports stores. These will help you assemble your table properly so that it looks nice and is durable.

Uses:

The last question that needs to be answered before you buy any ping pong table is, “What do I plan to use my new table for?”

There are many different uses for a ping pong table and you should have some idea of what you want to use your table for before you buy it. Think about whether you will be using your table for playing at a friend’s house or at your own home.

Also, consider the amount of time that you plan to spend using your table. If you’re only planning on using your table a few times per month, then just buy a portable ping pong table type, so you won’t have to be lazy to take it out. This table type will also come in handy if you intend to use it to play beer pong at home parties.

The last word

The best advice that I can give you about buying an indoor ping pong table is to spend as much time as possible searching around. If possible, you should go to your local store, ask the salesperson about the pros and cons of all kinds of tables, rackets & balls you intend to buy. You can ask them to help you create your own racket from the quality blades if you like. Tell them your needs so they can come up with the best product for you.

While it is true that there are some huge discounts out there, especially online, you should not pay just to save money. You get what you pay for, so if you think that a cheap table will save you a lot of money, you probably are not going to.

Instead, search around and try to find a good deal. In the end, the money that you save on a high-quality table will be more than enough to justify the extra expense.

Is baby swing necessary?

While the world is busy dealing with many issues due to the Coronavirus, the race to the presidency is slowly coming to an end in America. My family is receiving the good news that my cousin Daisy will give birth the end of February.

Daisy asked me about a hundred questions about the list of must-have for a baby. She reminded me about my pregnancy, and I would like to share with her as well as new mothers out there about that beautiful period.

On the blog today, I would like to write about baby swings. New parents usually concern, “Is a baby swing necessary?” A baby swing keeps calm your infant and becomes an effective supporter for parents. Your baby will love it.

With various designs and functions, a baby swing helps keep your child in a comfortable position instead of letting the baby lay down too much in a baby crib or a play mat. Do not worry about making your place become a daycare center; it is good to have all of them. In case you do not want to let your child on the ground and let he/she get more entertainment while you are doing something else, a baby swing is a better choice than a play mat.

Besides, multi-functions baby swings is a smart choice for who has a small space. They also help parents save money on special occasions when they need to travel with the child. Or a portable one can be a good option, with a half-full size and parents can take it and the baby everywhere in a flat. It can be folded to store in a closet easily. Even the article about Top 10 Best baby swings for big babies can also help you find which baby swings can hold the most weight.

In my opinion, the baby swing is super necessary and useful when my boy wanted to rock while sleeping. A baby swing to help sleeping. He could sleep a few hours on a swing. And Tom let me free to do house works while he looked at those toys hanging above. A baby swing can be a “massage chair” because it can vibrate, swing side to side or front to back.

Sometimes, Tom could sleep on a baby swing while Jonathan or I rest on a couch. Super convenience!

In the beginning, we borrowed a baby swing from Jonathan’s friend to checked if Tom really likes it. In the end, Tom got into it easily, and we decided to buy a new one for him. Parents can borrow or buy a used baby swing to try before deciding to invest in a super comfort baby swings. It is absolutely worthy.

I hope my sharing can help you answer the question, “is a baby swing necessary?” 😉

How to decorate a cool boy room

This month my wife and I come up with an idea to upgrade our boy room to the next level. Soon Tom is turning to five years old in October, and that’s the reason why we would like to renew the room for his birthday gift.

First of all, we want to check which color is Tom favorite. And actually, Tom seems does not care about the color; for him, they are no privilege. We usually think blue is the right color for a boy room, but after checking a ton of articles on the internet, we found out grey or beige is also the right choice.

Marie would like to paint the room with a light color so we can make the room look a little bit bigger with beige, then we draw some starts on the wall with gray and black paint and a piece of skyscraper art as a backdrop for the room. We found out this is a good idea to make something new for your children out of an old space.

how to decor boys room

Near the window, we use a closet to keep all of his clothes. We keep toys on display because Tom is still a boy; the toys are going to be replaced by the other stuffs when he grows up.

Tom is always interested in animals, so we also hang on a lot of pictures of some pets like dogs, cats, bears, and monkeys on the opposite wall.

For the bedside desk, we put a global on and one Lampe. For besides the table, we found it’s easier to use the white color for many purposes of decorating. Even when he has already grown up, we still can use that for our second child.

We also change the cover for beds and curtain to a light shade of blue and brown.

Still early for Tom now to get used to with a study desk and chair. But Marie and I decided to keep a space for this purpose, so we put a sofa in that position. It’s more convenient for us to rest, and the couch also an excellent closet to keep Tom season outfits. He is growing so fast that almost the clothes become tighter after a few months. And every space becomes smaller to him.

We are still working on renovation the room for Tom, and we hope that he will like that. If you have more ideas and you would like to share with us, please do not hesitate to leave us a message or a comment on this blog 😉

Summer memories

Summer is always the best time of the year for me. When I was 12 years old, my parents moved to Vietnam because of my dad’s work. I stayed there for three years; then, we moved back to Germany. It was not a long time, but I always remember the summer memories in the tropical country, bright colors, heat of the sun, flavor, and taste of tropical fruits.

I was into Vietnamese street foods every afternoon, Tom – my neighbor – and me, we went to the big river of the city to fly skies, pick up some sour mangos, fresh watermelon with chili salt before come home for dinner.

Growing Flower at home

Now, it’s just memories. This year, because of the Coronavirus, we stayed at home almost the time. My son – Tom – named after my favorite friend of my childhood – is four years old now. My wife and I want to create some pleasant summer memories for our son; we decided to make a small garden backyard and let my son join the project.

Tom was excited in his very first project; tiny fingers touched everything. We want to grow some veggies for our family, some flowers, some cactus while Tom just wanted to play with water from the tub backyard after 3 minutes joining the project.

We bought to earth from a local flower shop, one for flowers, and one for vegetables. Maries – my wife – would like to have some lavender pots; she loves the flagrant of the charming purple flower. We bought three small lavender pots from the store and moved them together to a new bigger pool.

I love salad, and Tom loves Spinach. Let tried to grow some greenie at home. I hope our little garden will not be bothered by snail – the most enemies of salad. I put some seeds on the hole after fill pots with special earth for vegies, while Tom helped me to water them.

Cactus Houseplant Collection Decoration Set

Marie was happy with her lavender and cactus corner, while Tom and I were satisfied with our salad pots. I hope we can harvest them one day. After finishing the project, we have dinner with some fresh salad cost 2 euro per package, backed French baguette, and Morazela cheese, watching Start war together. I’m happy because my son also loves this series. I watched Star war for the first time with my parents. My dad is also a big fan of Stars war, now the club has a new member named Tom. 😉
