Rear-Facing Carseat Video

This video speaks for itself.

I occasionlly check out the counter at the bottom of the blog and know that people are visiting the blog, but, WHO ARE YOU?? Only two people have left messages in the guestbook. Two people have left comments, but I believe you have to have blogger account, or at least register to leave a comment.

On the rumor front, its looking like referrals are expected to make it to mid-November and should arrive early June. What does that mean for me? If they go to 11-14-05, then I have 63 days of LID's to get to my LID. If they refer 14 days of LID's each month, then I have 4 1/2 months until my referral. That would put my referral in October/November and travel December/January.

In the mean time, I've been touring daycare facilities and getting my name on waiting lists. I need to call some back and make sure they still have me on the list since the wait has dragged on. One facility I went to referred to each teacher as "Miss So-and-So", even if there were no children around, which sounded funny (in a weird sort of way). Me thinks they've been dipping into the KoolAid too much. I think I will try that at work next week and preface everyone's name with a title and see how long it takes to get on someone's nerves??

The History of Mother's Day


This is a 4 1/2 minute video on the history of Mother's Day and how relevant it still is in today's world. I never knew this story before, but it certainly takes the meaning of Mother's Day away from the commercial Hallmark holiday it has become. I honored my Mother this year by sponsoring a nanny for one month at one of the Half The Sky orphanages in China. I can only hope and pray that Mary Alice is blessed to be a part of one of these facilities. My Mom has always been a supporter of children's rights and welfare, so I thought this was right up her alley. There is a link on the side-bar that will take you to the Half The Sky website if you are interested in learning more about this organization.
