Great little diffuser. My favorite feature us that it automatically shuts off when it gets empty. As a busy mom this is a great feature.

Do you ever just stop and look down at your shoes?
I went on a small trip to see the Harlem Globetrotters. I am, and never have been, one to like wearing shoes. I can handle flip flops or going barefoot with no issues. Well it is winter so that means I had to wear 'real shoes'. This means hot feet that hurt. So as I'm sitting in a parking lot waiting for the car to warm up I take a look at my shoes.
What came to my mind? I just instantly thought of how many years I have had this pair of shoes. I began thinking of all the times I wore them and where all they have been. Though I am not a fan of wearing them, my shoes have been to lots of places. They have gotten me through some pain. From slipping them on quickly, with no time for socks, and running out the door. They have been there to slip over swollen feet from carrying two babies, as well as to go to the hospital to meet them. They carried those babies into their home for the first time, and many times after.
I find it amusing how something I really could careless about has been such a big part of my life memories that I would have never expected to carry. Maybe this is the real reason women have a shoe fetish?
I finally stopped day dreaming about my shoes and headed home. When I got home my daughter informed me the heel on her boot had fallen off. Another pair of shoes to carry a funny memory of her walking funny into the house with one heel on and one heel off.
Take time to stop and think about what your shoes tell you.

One of the best things about homeschooling is that you can set your own schedual. This means you can let your kids get the sleep they need. Be it they were up to late because of a parent working late or even just a full day, they can sleep in and catch back up. Kids and teens need 10-12 hours of sleep a night!
So don't feel bad that you are not up and starting school at 8am like traditional school. Happy rested kids concentrate better and have a better attitude towards learning.
I'll be honest, sometimes we have started school just before dinner and finished after dinner. My kids have always done better if I let them get their energy out during the day.
Not everyone wants to use a cover to breastfeed, but if you do check this one out. Many are not very covering and others you can't see baby to latch them on. This one goes over your lap and it stays put so you can see your baby. Comes with a super soft 100% cotton baby blanket and a rubber bracelet to keep track of the time you fed last. I never was one to cover up but in the winter it gets pretty cold here and even in resturnats it's cold sometimes. This helps actually keeps us warmer and less bulk of a blanket. Not to mention I'm a large breast woman and have to hold my breast for baby and other covers never stayed pushed out allowing me to see what was going on under them. I really like this one. Plus a little Terry cloth in the corner is great for drool or spit up. I recieved this free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
