A Natural Solution to Bedwetting I want to preface this one by saying, I can only post this  because my son is 7 and doesn’t read my blog! So, what happens on this blog stays on this blog! But, I needed to share our natural remedy for bedwetting blues! Our bedwetting story: My seven year old son, Aaron, wets the bed.

10 Reasons I let my 8 year old carry a stuffed animal Recently my 8 year old son asked us to buy him a stuffed bunny to match the one his 4 year old step sister carries around.

He has named him Geoffrey and he spends time talking to him and “feeding him”. When he wants to bring Geoffrey into the grocery store, my husband is reluctant to allow it but I am persistent on letting him take

Knitted Flat Circle I searched high and low for a pattern to knit a flat circle. After going into my local knitting store and being told to knit wedges I decided I needed to figure this out on my own. I needed a circle, not a hexagon. I like the wedge design for many things but I don’t like the points it makes around the edges. So I played and played and here it finally is! The circle can be bigger or smaller by casting on more or less. Simply change each number in accordance to your original cast on

It is sometimes referred to as “cardice” and is the solid form of carbon dioxide. At pressures below 5.13 atm and temperatures below −69.5 °F, CO2 changes from a solid to a gas with no intervening liquid form, through a process called sublimation. The opposite process is called deposition, where CO2 changes from the gas to solid phase (dry ice).

10 Orange Essential Oil Recipes Essential Oils are made by distilling the most beneficial part of the plant being used. The most beneficial part of an orange is the peel! The peel contains more than four times as much fiber as the fruit inside, and more tangeretin and nobiletin—flavonoids with anticancer, antidiabetic, and anti-inflammatory properties. A 2004 study on animals suggests that these nutrients may even reduce harmful LDL cholesterol better than some prescription drugs. (Oprah.com) I personally do not have any desire to eat orange peels, I just throw them away. Knowing that orange essential oil is made by

Yootechs Glass Screen Protector I bought a glass screen protector from Yootech when I got my Lg V10. I was skeptical about this product actually saving my screen from cracking but I figured better safe than sorry. We recently did a few dry ice experiments and when we made a dry ice bomb, it scared the crap out of me causing me to throw my phone down on the cement floor! It cracked my screen protector in a very bad way. When I took my screen protector off, my phone screen was perfect! I will never go with out one
