Life consists of choices.  You can choose to be content with what you have or consumed with desiring what you don't have.  Sometimes we need to just step back and observe what is right in front of us and realize that what we have right now was once something that we hoped that one day we would have.  Now that is powerful...I don't care who ya are :-)

Great Idea - Way to carry treats for your kids when you travel.  Just use a Bead Organizer Container and decorate on the outside with Vinyl.  Fill each spot with various treats.  They get to be responsible for their own treat bucket. They can eat it as fast or as slow as they want, but it never refills during the trip :-)

(Important Information taken from the website below) http://www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/childsafety_laws.html

Child passenger restraint requirements vary based on age, weight and height. Often, this happens in three stages: infants use rear-facing infant seats; toddlers use forward-facing child safety seats; and older children use booster seats.

Many laws require all children to ride in the rear seat whenever possible, and most states permit children over a particular age, height or weight to use an adult safety belt.


First offense fines for not complying with a state's child passenger safety laws vary from $10 to $500. Some states also use driver's license points as an additional penalty for noncompliance.
  • All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands require child safety seats for infants and children fitting specific criteria.
  • 47 states and the District of Columbia require booster seats or other appropriate devices for children who have outgrown their child safety seats but are still too small to use an adult seat belt safely.
    • The only states lacking booster seat laws are Arizona, Florida and South Dakota.
  • 5 states (California, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey and New York) have seat belt requirements for school buses. Texas requires them on buses purchased after September 2010.
NOTE: GHSA does not compile any additional data on child passenger safety laws other than what is presented here. For more information, consult the appropriate State Highway Safety Office.  You can find your state's requirements at http://www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/childsafety_laws.html
