Mom’s A Big Help

Disclosure: This is a compensated post. Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy


My mom has got to be the best mother in the world. I know everyone says that but my mom knows Kris and I have been trying to save up money for a true honeymoon since we never got one after the wedding and she’s been helping in every way possible. The other day she sent me a check in the mail – apparently she put some of her old handbags on Ebay and made some quick cash. She also emailed me a link for where she said she’d gone to research her utilities and ended up saving lots of money each month. I can’t believe mom’s offered to watch the dog and our daughter once we make enough to go on our vacation, either. We’d already factored in the $300 the kennel was going to cost so that’s a huge help in getting to our goal. I really want to make sure mom’s always taken care of since dad died – she lives in that big house all alone and I know she doesn’t have any extra money laying around, either. I try to be cognizant of the fact that she’s got medications to pay for and she eats cheap food just to make sure she’s got enough but I sure do hear the call of the waves down in Cancun. That’s where my husband and I want to go if we can ever save enough as we’ve heard such great stories about it from some of our friends. We even found an all-inclusive resort I think we can afford, but we’ll have to catch it on special. We’ll probably have to go n hurricane season because it’s cheaper and just risk a storm but you know, I guess being holed up in a fancy hotel with room service isn’t the worst way to spend a rainy vacation, anyway! The only hurdle once we save the cash is getting my husband the time off work but I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

How to Install Multiple Child Safety Seats in a Car

Car seats play an important safety role in modern vehicles. Since a vehicle’s seats are usually designed for adults, safety belts and airbags can be a hazard for children under the age of 12. While car seats can be a great tool for proper vehicle safety, it can be difficult to install them correctly. The following guide provides simple tips and tricks on how to safely install multiple car seats in a vehicle.
It’s important to understand how car seats work. Since a child is significantly smaller than an adult, many children will not be properly restrained in a traditional seat belt. In the event of an accident, a child can be severely injured or killed by a traditional safety belt. Several National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) accident review studies have shown that children will often slip out of a regular seat belt during an accident.

Child car seats are designed to secure a child in the event of an accident. Since child safety seats are designed to fit around a child, a child in a proper safety seat will be at a reduced risk of an accident.

However, it’s essential to make sure that car seats are installed in the proper ways. If a child isn’t buckled into a properly-placed car seat, he or she can be at an increased risk of injury in an accident.

It’s essential to make sure that one follows all instructions when placing a child in a car seat. In most cases, child seats are designed to face the rear of a vehicle. In the event of a front-end collision, children will be propelled into the back of their seat. This reduces the risk of injuries from seat belt attachments and straps. However, it can increase the risk of injury in a rear-end collision.

One should never place a car seat in the front of a vehicle. In many cases, an air bag can cause significant damage to a child in a car seat. Since air bags are designed to cushion a crash for an adult, they can’t provide good protection for a child in a specialized seat. Several accident reports have shown that air bags can actually kill a child if he or she is in a car seat. To avoid these types of problems, it’s a good idea to make sure that a child set is set up in the rear of a vehicle.

If a vehicle doesn’t have rear seats, it may be possible to set up a child seat in the front of the vehicle by following certain precautions. Some modern vehicles allow an individual to turn off the passenger air bag. However, it’s essential to make sure that one remembers to turn it back on when the seat is occupied by an adult.

Child safety seats play a critical role in preventing injuries during a vehicle accident. While child safety seats can be a valuable tool for many parents, it’s essential to make sure that seats are adjusted in the proper way.

Little Girls and Music Boxes


I can remember having this beautiful glass music box when I was a little girl, it had birds on it and played music every time I opened it. I loved it, and would always hide my treasures in it.

Now that I am a mother, I want my daughters to have the same memories I did. So I have been on the lookout for a glass Music box, like I had. While looking around they have so many varieties available, Music boxes shaped like animals, and candy.
One of my favorites is a personalized Daughter I Love You Music box. It is so gorgeous and the perfect gift that will last a lifetime.

I think I will be moving Music Boxes for Christmas to #1 on my list this year.  I can’t wait for Christmas now, just looking at these music boxes.

Cord blood banking: Its important role in saving lives

The cord blood is a real life saver. No one ever thought that the moment babies are born, they bring with them life-saving commodities that can be used for themselves or for other individuals. On the other hand, to effectively tap their life-saving potential, cord blood needs to be stored in reputable cord blood banks so that their rejuvenating properties can be preserved.

Cord blood is actually made up of stem cells that can be harvested and therefore used by donors to help treat a wide array of diseases or conditions that may arise from devastating injuries. At present, there are about 70 detrimental conditions that can be treated by the said blood. The long list includes different forms of cancers and Krabbe disease.

In terms of treating cancer, individuals who are affected by the “Big C” get their healthy cells damaged because chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other medical procedures. When this happens, stem cells can be transfused into the body of patients so that the damaged cells can be rejuvenated by cord blood stem cells.

Krabbe Disease and other rare diseases can also be treated by cord blood transfusion. The said disease is detrimental condition that is developed during the infant years. If they are not treated within two years, they may cause nervous system breakdowns and even death.

Present-day researches confirm that the chances of survival of infants who receive cord blood transfusion in the early stages of Krabbe Disease are higher than those who do not receive the said medical support. On the other hand, it is important to remember that the disease should be detected so that nervous system functions will not be affected in any way.

Parents who will make a decision to bank their infant’s cord blood should take note the stem cells that it contains will be stored for their exclusive use. And the whole thing does not come for free.

It comes with high fees that need to be settled in a regular basis. On the other hand, it should be remembered that the benefits that can be attained from cord blood banking are simply endless and life sustaining.

First-timers should make arrangements with their physicians a months before giving birth because medical practitioners need to take care of several important matters. During the delivery stage, a small amount of cord blood will be harvested from the umbilical cord and then sent to the chosen storage facility for preservation purposes. It is a very straightforward procedure, but it is an essential investment that can help save lives.

Brad and Angelina

Guest post from: Kent Lara

I saw on Direct TV that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engagedand are going to get married. I think I saw it on E News or something. I think they are the neatest couple and have to coolest family. I think Angelina Jolie is a little freaky, but I guess she is a good mom and person from the looks of things. Brad Pitt is just plain hot and the fact that he is such a good father makes him all that hotter. What I want to know is how does Angelina Jolie look that fit after having 3 children biologically, two of which were twins? It’s just not natural. I’m sure she works out 24/7, right? How else could she look like she never even had kids? I would be so bummed if they didn’t work out. It seems like everyone in Hollywood gets divorced, and no marriage lasts, but with all the kids they share, I really hope that their marriage does last. I would be sad if it didn’t work out.

Guest Post: Crossing Items Off The List

Thanks to Erasmo Cortez

We have decided to open our own small business. My mom, my sister, and I are all going into business together. We have been operating out of our homes and just advertising on facebook for a few years now, but not we are going nationwide, baby! We’ve secured our small business loanand everything. This is when the fun really starts. This has been a dream we’ve shared for so many years now, and now that dream is becoming a reality right before our very eyes. We’ve written a list of all the things to be done, and divided the list between the three of us. I have been steadily crossing things off my list of responsibilities. Next up is to secure a t1 internet plan for our business. I am looking into the options today and speaking am speaking with different companies to try and get us the best deal. I’m thinking this will take the most part of the day, so it may be the only thing I get off the list today.

A Way To Show You Care

A Guest Post By Katie Baldesweiler

It’s always hard to shop for people. Those celebration days come around every year. Whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, a wedding or a baby shower, you find yourself pondering, “What should I get Linda?” or “What gift would Bob like?” I know I spend hours in the stores, walking through aisle after aisle, fingering through the unoriginal products and items. Every shopping trip, I leave empty-handed because I just can’t get behind a purchase. I don’t feel like it’s worth it. So after wasting gas and my time, I am just frustrated and without a gift.

I always thought that do-it-yourself gifting was so thoughtful and meaningful. The Internet offers a great way to browse through cute DIY blogs and websites with information and tutorials on how to make your own presents. But with a 9 to 5 job, it’s hard to find time to put something together like that.

We all know that the way to someones heart is through their stomach. Cliché, but true. I find great joy in baking and cooking for others. I think that says a lot about me as a person, too. It’s easy to see the common trend here; I like to give things to people that are from the heart.

I always found gift baskets to be a such a great concept. I remember the carnival my elementary school had and they raffled off these fabulous gift baskets that every homeroom classroom made. My dad stuffed the cans of a few of the baskets and what do you know, we went home with TWO! We won an “Italian-themed” gift basket full of pasta and spices. And a “bakers-themed” gift basket full of all the supplies you need to start your own bakery.

Feeling sentimental, I scoured the Internet for a place that could help me out with a gift basket and I found With countless themes including “cupcake”, “gardening”, and “spa and pamper” how could you go wrong? I’ve got this site bookmarked for the next time I am stumped and have no clue what to get for my Aunt June.
