Thai Food Poisoning

Thai food is good. Thai food poisoning, on the other hand, is not. Josh and Caleb found this out first-hand on our trip to Phuket, Thailand this past weekend. We still aren't sure exactly what it was that they ate that caused them 24-hours of misery, but we're thinking it was the watermelon slices they ate on our day-tour of the Phi Phi Islands (Yvette wrote an interesting post about these islands. . . check it out here). Josh got hit really hard, but thankfully, Caleb didn't suffer quite as much. He did, however, administer the "True Test of Motherhood" on me and I am proud to say I passed =)

As a result of the 24-hours of misery and grossness, I spent all day yesterday doing laundry. Caleb is still extra-clingy right now (another side-effect of being ill) so posting anything that takes longer than 5-minutes to write is out. However, Yvette has been doing a great job journaling about her visit here so if you want to see what we've been up to, hop on over to her blog.

Since you can eat watermelon in almost any country on earth, Thai food's reputation is not really tarnished here!

Until then, how was the weekend?

Facts about Sleep and Height
We have been informed that sleeping eight hours a day is vital for a person who wants to grow taller. Sleep has a direct impact in a person’s growth. If the body is able to rest well, it is also able to perform proper bodily functions such as producing growth hormones.
However, sleeping is not the only factor that must be considered. Naturally, it is still necessary to eat right, have regular exercise and drink growth boosters such as Growth Flex V Pro System. Now that we have established that enough rest is crucial, let us now discuss how to rest correctly.
Sleeping doesn’t only mean you’ll need to close your eyes. It also means you have to lay down on a firm and flat mattress that can fully support you. Don’t sleep on the couch, because doing so will require you to rest your head on the armrest, which is not the proper position for sleeping. Even pillows do not contribute to attaining the right sleeping posture. Take a good knowledgeable tour on this here .
Although many people have been attached to their soft and comfortable pillow, those who are trying to grow taller should be rid of it. First and foremost, when utilizing a pillow, the head is inclined higher, requiring the neck to bend forward. This is not a natural position for the neck. The neck is not the only one affected – the back is affected too. The back arches to give way for the neck being bent forward.
Try to imagine yourself lying down on the bed with a pillow beneath your head. If you stand up maintaining the exact position of your body as you were lying down, you will see that you are maintaining a stooped position, which is responsible for making you smaller. Here you can get much more information .
