Car Seat Guide: Clek Fllo Convertible

 Three Valentine’s Day Cures

Guest Posting by Wendy Strgar, author of Love That Works: A Guide to Enduring Intimacy, and founder of Good Clean Love

“The art of love… is largely the art of persistence.”  ~Albert Ellis

There are two very valuable lessons about love that could be a cure for our broken relationships and dissatisfying sex lives:  Love does not come made to order; and we must be willing to ask for what we want. These two common misunderstandings about the limits of our relationships can wreak havoc in the development and maturity of many long-term partnerships. Maybe it is the fault of reading too many romantic novels or being brought up in an Ozzie & Harritet-like culture of happily ever after, but the sad and happy truth of real and lasting loving relationships is that we don’t have control over how other people love us. This truth becomes very clear when it’s combined with the belief that other people should know what we feel (or want) from love without having to tell them – and suddenly – the brokenness of our collective love lives.

411 on Car Seat Safety

As a parent, we want nothing more than to protect our children. From the minute we bring them into this world, we do everything in our power to ensure their safety in every circumstance. With that being said, one of the largest safety hazards we encounter is the car seat our children sit in. There are certain rules we must follow when utilizing car seats, besides installation and usage, that are important to follow to optimize safety.

Today we focus on understanding expiration dates, traveling with a child seat, as well as knowing when a car seat should be retired following an accident or after sustaining damage.

Connecting with Grandchildren Who Live Far away

Grandparents delight in their grandchildren. They love holding, snuggling, kissing, and playing with them. Grandchildren are so precious!

But sometimes grandparents’ arms are empty and they feel sad because their grandchildren live too far away to regularly visit in person. It’s hard to have much of a relationship when grandma lives in San Diego and the grandchildren live in Bangor, Maine.

Even though grandchildren may live miles and miles away, grandparents can still be active in their grandchildren’s lives. Here are two ways that grandparents can use to connect with their sweet grandchildren.

Debunking the 5 Second Rule

Picture this: it’s lunchtime, and you just whipped up grilled cheeses, pretzels and ants on a log for your hungry kids. Your 4-year old grabs his plate a little too eagerly… and the food falls everywhere.

You:

  • A. Rapidly place the sandwich, logs and pretzels back on the plate for your kiddo — five second rule!
  • B. Place the pretzels and sandwich back on the plate after dusting them off. The logs, meanwhile, have little fuzzes and specks of dirt on them, so you toss ’em.
  • C. Throw everything away, and remake the entire lunch.
  • D. Remake lunch — as you scarf down the from-the-floor lunch — five, er, fifteen second rule!

You’ve probably heard of the old “five second rule,” and wondered, “Is it valid?” “Is it safe to eat food that’s been on the floor?” Does where the food fall matter? Is food that falls outside safer than food that falls inside? What are the exceptions?

Well, today we’re answering these questions — and more!
