Uncommon Goods has a lot of really neat things. I absolutely love the Recycled Desk Pendulum Clock – my seven year old son, who is autistic and fascinated with clocks and the physical mechanics of things – would love this for Christmas! http://www.uncommongoods.com/product/recycled-desk-pendulum-clock

I love this tank – I have one for my Betta fish, Princeton. Just one thing I’d recommend for yours: a heater! Betta fish thrive in water temperatures ranging between 78 and 84.

Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, by the way. :) I would support RAINN while shopping at Uncommon Goods.

Yay! He looks so happy. I hope he continues to enjoy kindergarten. :) They grow up so fast, don’t they? My mind is blown that my “baby” is now entering second grade. Wahhhhh!

Life in the Backseat
Ahh, backseats. I remember how cramped the backseat of my car (a Kia Spectra — a compact!) was when we first had an infant seat and a larger carseat, then two carseats, and then two booster seats. It’s not so bad now that we’re down to just one backless booster, but even when we ditch that the kids will be bigger, and thus the amount of space available will be about the same — or even less. I fantasize about a mini-van, and sticking one kid in each row, but I’ll contend myself with good gas mileage and the ability to squeeze into small parking spaces, lol.

To support my blogging efforts and site expenses, I do share relevant affiliate links in my posts. Thank you for your support.
