Are Bath Bombs Safe? Read these Important Facts Before Your Next Spa Day

Gratitude and Goals May 2017 #GratitudeGoals

Gratitude and Goals My Gratitude: My birthday was great! A wonderful day spent watching Beauty and the Beast with hubby, eating a nice lunch (with dessert) and just enjoying a beautiful day outside, relaxing, while the kidlet was in daycare! And yes, we had sushi. And met up with some friends. We took the kidlet to the children’s museum – the big one in Houston. It was quite huge and I’m glad we finally went to check it out.

Getting Children Their First Pet

  The Five “W’s” of Getting Children Their First Pet   Traditionally, when journalism is taught, instructors want their future reporters always to convey the five “W’s” found inside of any great story: “Who, What, When, Where and Why (along with an “H” for how). Getting your child their first pet also comes with answers to these important questions. As far as the “H” goes, you should always consider a shelter or rescue organization for “how” to get an animal.   WHO would be you and your family, unless you are considering going through a breeder.
