Let’s face it, our moms will take whatever we give them for Christmas with a happy smile, just as they have since we brought home our raggedy cutout snowflakes in first grade. The thing is, we’re grown up now and after so many Christmas celebrations together, we’ve run out of ideas that aren’t the same worn-out offerings to her: the scarf, the book, the fancy can opener, a box of chocolates, something related to her hobbies. We probably have a good idea what NOT to give her: a kitchen appliance (unless she’s asked for it), any kind of clothing she hasn’t gone with us to pick out, a book on making the home beautiful, a picture frame… you know that list.
Being a caring, loving and successful mother is not so much easy as you can think. Especially if you are a new mom and you have your first baby. You lack some experience and knowledge concerning motherhood. One of the problems which you can face as a young mother is about the foods that are dangerous for your baby. The greatest risks that can be caused by some foods include a choking hazard and an allergic reaction. It is recommended by doctors to avoid giving solids foods to your babies until they are 4-6 months old. Very often some parents can’t resist their temptation to feed a baby the same food they are eating. You should be patient, wait a bit until you find out which foods are healthy and safe.

I think it’s not a secret that our children are our own reflections. The personality of our children depends on our love, treatment and care. That’s why you should keep in mind the qualities of a perfect mother.
It’s no accident that the annual feasting celebration falls in, well, fall. There was a time when it was necessary to overeat and pack on the pounds to get through a tough winter. The tradition of gathering with friends and family to give thanks each November has persisted, of course, for many really wonderful reasons. As has the tradition of overeating, and immediately resigning ourselves to a month of overindulgence and an “I’ll just resolve to get back in shape after the New Year,” attitude.
The truth, of course, is that none of us really needs to put on the extra weight that was once necessary to keep us warm. We have clothes for that. And heated homes. And heated offices. And heated seats in our cars. We don’t really want to put on any additional weight either, because we know it’s way harder to get off. And nobody wants to wear turkey-and-stuffing-thighs and pecan-pie-belly to the pool with the kids when summer rolls back around.
