The first few days home from the hospital are just as important
to you as they are to your baby. As new parents you will have
gone through an exciting birth that will have left you
breathless and exhilarated. As a new mother you will be
emotionally and physically exhausted. As a new father you will
be overwhelmed by your new responsibilities. The first days at
home are a time to take a deep breath, sit back and relax, and
take some time just for you.

Setting up a quality childcare is only part of what's needed to
have a successful program. You also need to let parents know
about your business. Since most home-based childcare providers
do not have a lot of money to spend on advertising, a little
creativity can help you reach parents who are looking for care.
Networking is a strong tool. Make sure that everybody you know
knows that you provide childcare. That way, if they hear of a
parent looking for care, they can refer that parent to you. ...
A housewarming party is a great idea to welcome new neighbors as
well as show off your new digs to friends and family. There no
need to wait until all the boxes are put away-everyone
understands how busy moving is. I think informal is the way to
go for housewarming parties. Save the formal black tie events
until you're more settled in!
Throw an "under construction" theme complete with yellow hard
hats and yellow caution tape.
Give out inflatable hammers and goggles as party favors and ...

Last week I felt like the mother in the commercial, where her
son shows her a good report card, and she starts to cry. My son
is growing up. He pulled up his grades. I wish he could do the
same for his pants, but one thing at a time.
We visited a college campus this past weekend. He was happy to
find out the school was seventy percent female and he liked the
food. I was happy thinking I'll have less laundry and that he
was finally happy about going to school, any school.
School was never easy ...
You cannot afford a home because you are not permitted to earn
enough money. If for example you cannot afford to get to work,
the work cannot be done. To get better pay, you might need that
job in Exeter. But you and your family live in Redruth. To sell
up and move to Exeter, would cost you so much money, that it
would be impossible.
A house in Exeter, as good as yours in Redruth, will cost you so
much more, that the higher pay would make you poorer than ever.
You live at a time in which the ...

Home air purification systems are being purchased by the
millions. Many adults both with and without children are
realizing that the one thing they can control in their home is
the air they breath. Many have done their diligent studies or
took it on recommendation that the air outside is harmful, but
the air inside(up to 70 times more toxic)can be made cleaner by
purchasing and installing some sort of unit that will help clean
And a good choice it was. Several units will filter out ...
From the moment I learned I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to be
a stay-at-home mom. That feeling only strengthened when my
beautiful son was born. I took one look at him and wondered how
I could ever give up the opportunity to spend each and every day
with him, watching him grow and learn, and exploring the world
for the first time through his eyes. But there was a problem. We
were a two-income family. How could we possibly afford to
eliminate one of those incomes? Well, there are a lot of ...
