There’s no best and safest car seat. The most important criteria is that the seat fits your child properly, is easy for you to use, and fits your vehicle correctly.

When in Doubt, Dance it Out

I don't care what I look like (more often than not I look like a fool, and I love it!) or how I sound when I sing. I just Dance. It. Out. I feel so much better after I do!
I see you; I am looking at your face, and I can tell you are smiling under your mask.
None of the escapes ever feel right, except one: nature. Nature is literally the only thing that has consistently felt right this year.
I have always been an advocate for mental health awareness, therapy, and medication. I have encouraged several friends to look into all 3 options. It is just the first time that I personally had no more excuses.
Let’s be honest, wearing a mask is no fun. It’s awkward, uncomfortable, and some of us are experiencing “maskne” (mask-acne).
The news is depressing. Social media is a dumpster fire. We *have* to take in good things, too. Good things are out there.
Whether you're in need of an eye exam, new glasses, contacts, or have an eye health concern, there's a fresh option in Rochester for all your optical needs: Total Vision Eyecare.
A little while ago, my family and I were placed on a mandated COVID 14-day quarantine. One of us was exposed to the virus and the county gave us the notification that we were not to leave our house, except to seek medical care, for 14 days.
Some have told me and others like me who are immune-compromised or high-risk to stay home, so they don't have to wear a mask and be uncomfortable.
