image001Are you in need of assistance with Day Care?

There are so many families that are making too much income to qualify for DHS Child Day Care assistance, but just not enough to afford to pay for Child Day Care on their own.  Please share.

These scholarships are designed for families whose income is above the range of state and federal assistance, but below a comfortable existence for necessities like childcare.

Please share with client’s as a resource for families that may not qualify for Child Day Care.

Wednesday @Wisebread: Sock It to Me: 15 Uses for Old Socks via @mikeyrox #motownmom

I’m all for multi-uses of any product in the house and with the sock troll always stealing his supply around my house, we have a lot of odd pairs just floating around.

What I’ve tried to do is buy the same type or brand or color of socks so if one goes missing, the children can use another right out of the random sock bag. It’s worked for years and trust me when I say before that, we were going through a lot of socks.

Today @Wisebread gives us a crack at what else we can do with those mischievous objects the sock troll has left us with.

Sock It to Me: 15 Uses for Old Socks
