Saving for a child's college expenses can seem like a daunting task. However, it is a lot simpler than many people think. When it comes to paying for a child's education, parents tend to have a million and one questions. All of which are completely understandable. Some of the more frequently asked questions are:
How do you get started saving?
How much do you save for college?
Where do you invest the money?
The answer to the first question, "How do you get started saving?" can be answered by referencing the article, "Three Steps to Start Saving for Your Child's College." As for how much to save for college, there is a bounty of online calculators available to determine just how much of a contribution is required to meet savings goals. These calculators work by looking at a variety of factors including a child's specific circumstance, public or private education, and the level of funding.
Once your child gets back to school, you'll start to notice that he or she may get sicker more often. Being in close quarters with other children contribute to that. By the time, one child's symptoms start to get noticeable, it's too late.
Colds are contagious the first three days after initial exposure. That's why sometimes the entire family is sick together. The cold usually starts out with a sore throat, followed by a runny and or stuffy nose, and sometimes a mild cough will be present.
When your child starts to get cold symptoms, make sure it's not the flu because a lot of people get the two confused, including myself (is it a cold or flu?). The cold should go away within a week, but if not, you'll need to make sure it's not a bacterial infection. If it's bacterial, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics (honestly speaking, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't for my family).
I remember when I was a new mom, I took my daughter in for a cold and we sat in the doctor's waiting room for 45 minutes and another hour in the actual room they assigned us. By the time the doctor came around to see us, all he said was to give her Motrin or Tylenol if she felt uncomfortable (this was the same case for the flu as well). If your child is under 4, it's no longer recommended to give your child over-the-counter cold and cough medicines.
After wasting time, lots of energy and money ($20 co-pay), I decided to use homeopathic and natural products to relieve cold symptoms for my child. Not only did it save me time, energy and money, it was very effective. Plus, I like do things naturally when I have the option to do so.
The blogosphere was all up in arms last week about the episode of Toddlers and Tiaras which featured a pint-sized contestant dressed up like a hooker ala Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. As horrifying as that might be, I've found six similarly age-inappropriate get-ups geared towards young girls. These Halloween costumes are most definitely scary--but not in the traditional "Boo!" kind of way.
Just recently Virgin America, opened up services to Chicago and since the price was right and I needed to book tickets for my cousin's wedding, I chose to fly with them.
I'd flown with them before when my older child was almost two years-old and had a great experience. At the time, my daughter was a little sick and instead of having her sit on my lap, they gave me the entire row.
I have to say that this time around, I was a little disappointed with the inconsistency of customer service.
Easter is just a few day away and I'm sure little ones everywhere are very excited. After all,
who doesn't love a chocolate Easter Bunny? Here's your list of freebies for the weekend:
For Easter you can get a free photo with the Easter Bunny. If the kids are afraid of the six-foot
tall bunny and won't sit on his lap, you can print a free letter from him for them to read Easter morning.
There are quite a few recipes up for grabs; how does Crown Roast of Lamb and Blue Peep Pie sound?
There is even something for scrapbookers this time. Plus, over the weekend AC Moore and Michael's are hosting free craft events.
