Household Chores Children

2019-04-24T15:38:34+02:00

You don’t have to do it all mom! We often think that our children are too young to do some chores, that they can’t do it right or we feel sorry for them because we think they don’t like to help in the household but nothing is less true. *this post contains affiliate links Modern housekeeping In the past, most mothers were at home with their children. Children saw what their mothers were doing at home and helped. Nowadays it’s more common that both parents work and children go to daycare or grandparents after school. When they come home, household chores are already done or be done when the children are in bed. They don’t learn what needs to be done to keep the house clean, tidy and nice. [...]

Will my baby’s eye color change?

2019-04-15T13:49:43+02:00

Are all babies born with blue eyes? Most Caucasian babies are born with blue eyes. African-American and Asian babies are likely to have brown eyes. The color usually become darker over time. Why does eye color change? Melanin is a (brown) pigment what colors the eyes darker. A small amount of melanin colors the eyes blue, a medium amount turns the eyes hazel or green and a large amount of melanin in the iris turns the eyes brown. A baby is not born with the amount of melanin they’ll eventually have. Natural light boosts the melanin in the eyes (also in the hair and skin). When parents have dark skin and brown eyes, their baby is likely to have more melanin in the iris and the eye color may be [...]
