“Tonight is your last night as a five year old. And tomorrow?” “I will be six.” “Are you excited?” “Yes, but will ALL my teeth be loose tomorrow?” For some reason, Sprite has placed all of her expectations for turning six on losing teeth. She watched friend after friend wiggle them out and cash them in throughout the lean year of five. Six must surely offer some dividends. However, five had its own diamonds in the rough. It brought about changes unlike any Sprite has ever experienced before. Leaving behind the preschool she knew so well, the teachers that seemed to grow with her, spending her summer in a free-willed, yet loosely structured dance camp where there was no time to misbehave as long as there was a cool teenaged girl to follow around and mimic. (This also brought about a brief yet intense passion for Justin Bieber, the young one, not the old one, yes there is a difference.) August introduced her to public school, a new teacher, a new set of rules, standards, people. She took it all in with a confident smile, making friends, crushing on the wild one, and obediently following directions with gentle guidance. “No, we don’t yell for others to be quiet.” “Sprite, please do not interrupt the others. Yes, I understand you’re done with your work but they are not.” She quickly taught us all, teachers and parents, how readily she was absorbing the material now laid out in front of her. Books which had intimidated her throughout four and most of five, became easy challenges, morsels to be enjoyed and relished again and again, earning me some relief for my voice now that she has to share in story time. Her little forays into the yellows and reds of the behavior color chart taught her how to spell and even punctuate the ever so necessary apology letters she was required to write whenever she came home with a note. Sight words became quick nightly spelling tests (without cheating) complete with sentences at the end. “I did not get a red today. I got a green!” Yes, life was moving rather easily for our five year old. Until, Um… Well? …I really have no idea. I’d like to say it all started right after Blue passed away. I kept waiting for her to fall off the emotional cliff, not able to keep my own tears away from the void whenever someone would mention her death. The tears and sadness never came. She merely pulled out her rest friend, a tri-color beagle which became known as “Blue, but not the real Blue. This is a fake one. The real one died.” Yeah, I’m still tearing up over it. I had warned her teacher for the just in case moments. The clock kept ticking and none of the textbook moments happened. Instead, the behavior started to go south. The notes popped up more frequently in her daily planner. “Not listening in the cafeteria.” “Not participating in small group work.” (That one came up twice. Her excuse was “it makes me sleepy”. We quickly decoded it to “I’m bored.”) “Hitting another child in the back of the head.” Ooh, that kid is so done.. There are two rules we have in our home, no lying, no hitting. Oh, and set the alarm. Make that three rules. Luckily, she’s a lousy liar, I catch her at it every time, the shifty eyes and slowed speech with requisite “um’s” and “uh’s”. “If you have to think about what happened, you’re trying to lie. The truth doesn’t take that long.” The hitting? John and I were flummoxed. Where had our child, known for her penchant of chatting anyone and everyone up, learned to use her hands in that way? We had repeated emails and conferences with her teacher, even the principal made a cameo once to drill it into Sprite’s head that the safe umbrella of Kindergarten behavior does not encompass hitting, i.e., you’re not covered for that. Punishment was swift and eclipsing, no electronics, no toys, no dessert. Only books, writing, and arts and crafts to show her how to use her hands constructively. Her teacher and the principal call it “only child syndrome”. Basically, she’s in an environment where the teacher is the mother figure and she needs to share her with seventeen other kids when at home, it’s the “All Sprite Show starring Sprite! With special guest Sid the Science Kid!” So she acts out to get the attention, positive or negative. The hitting allegedly stems from not having to share with siblings at home. Sure, my sister and I had our share of beatdowns, she had nails so she usually won, but in school, we were (mostly) angels. Sprite never had a round 1 or round 2, so she’s learning now that hitting your classmate is not only not cool, it will land you in detention. The bad behavior has been building for a while, meanwhile at home, she’s been a mostly pleasant child, eager to have fun, and even more eager to learn, the same ole’ Sprite we know and love. So we’ve had to adapt the theme of six a bit. Five was about new experiences. Six is about rules. “No hitting. No lying. No talking back to teachers or parents.” Luckily, she can read those words now. I merely have to point to them. We did give her a reprieve from the punishment to enjoy her birthday party this weekend, so we’re not the strictest parents in the world. “Mommy, since I’m going to be Merida at my birthday party, you need to be Queen Elinor.” “What about Daddy?” “Um, he can be Mor’du.” “The scary bear? Why not the King?” “Because the King wears a skirt. No one needs to see his business.” Happy sixth birthday, Sprite. Keep spreading those wings, love. Just try not to get them into other people’s fly space..

Yesterday I mentioned I was jumping on the Essential Oils bandwagon and that this would include a really awesome giveaway.  Well, this is the giveaway I promised.  🙂   My introduction into using Essential Oils for medicinal purposes came in a sample of doTerra Lavender.  I’ve been using it in many ways- rubbing it on Bear’s feet at night, putting some on my husband’s pillow, using it on myself to help me relax, etc.  And, of course, on the cloth diapers… which doesn’t seem medicinal but if you’ve ever smelled a cloth diaper when it’s due for a stripping… well, let’s just say that’s medicinal!  Haha!  With just that one EO I was happy. Then Tanna, from Milkweed Botanicals, introduced me to Peppermint and Lemon with the doTerra Introductory Kit.  Yup.  I’m sold. I’ve only had these EOs in my house a week, and I honestly don’t know enough about them to get the full use out of them yet, but just the short list given on the box and on Milkweed Botanicals of ways to use them has been invaluable!  We are currently in the height of allergy season here and my breathing has been rough the past couple of days.  Usually I turn to my inhaler on days like these, but this time I decided to give the EOs a try first.  The box claims that the three combined can really help with allergies, so I put a drop of each on my wrist and chest.  Almost right away I noticed that my breathing was clearing up and my eyes weren’t so wattery.  Within 20 minutes it was as if I’d taken an allergy pill- I felt great!  I also found that Peppermint  really helped clear my lungs so I could breath better, so I inhaled a drop and right away I felt better than if I’d just sucked on my inhaler.  Oh, and I smelled fantastic! I use all three together now in the morning as a preventative rather than waiting for my allergies to attack and things have been going great.  It has been rainy which means allergens are lower now, so I’m anxious to see if this can continue once everything dries out and they go back up.  I’m pretty optimistic, though, seeing as how I haven’t taken an allergy pill or my inhaler in three days! Of course, there are so many other uses for these.  Medicinal, psychological, personal cleaning… I don’t really know why you wouldn’t want to have a ton around your house!  Although, I will say that I can see my bank account really suffering after a while.  They are fabulous, but a bit pricey for this frugal girl.  HOWEVER, when I take into account how much I spend on my allergy meds alone each year, I’d be saving myself a lot of money.  And if these can also replace pain relievers, diaper rash creams, Goo Gone, odor removers, digestive aids, beauty products, and caffeine  (see graphic) as they claim then I could buy every EO available from doTerra and still be saving money!  Maybe… I am really frugal… My point is, they seem promising.  Anything that can make my family healthier and happier is well worth whatever price attached.  So when you really look at it that way, they are rather affordable.  Now, to get my hands on some of those Blends… WIN IT! As promised, we will be giving away and Introductory Kit containing Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint to one lucky EcoFrugal follower!  This kit is valued at over $25 and all you have to do to win is follow the direction on the Rafflecopter widget below.  Good luck!

How to Get an Auto Insurance at Affordable Price

Claims Secrets Your Insurer Doesn’t Tell You
When most people buy auto insurance, they focus on the policy’s cost. They usually trust that the coverage they purchase will be sufficient to handle any accidents that may happen, but they don’t always research the claims process. When an accident happens, they may realize that there are some things they don’t understand, and an insurance company may not be eager to explain. Here are five things you probably didn’t know about insurance claims. 1. You don’t have to file the claim with your insurer. If you are not at fault for the accident, you don’t have to call your insurance company at all. You can file the claim with the insurance of the person who hit you, and they will be liable for your repairs and rental car. This is true even if you don’t have coverage on your vehicle, and you won’t need to pay a deductible. 2. Your insurance company doesn’t want you to get an attorney. Depending on the facts of the loss, you may or may not benefit from the services of an attorney, but an insurance company will never encourage you to get one. It’s against the insurer’s interests, since attorneys nearly always negotiate larger payouts. 3. Your insurance will offer to settle for injuries. After an accident, your insurance company will approach you with a settlement offer for injuries. This will usually be between $500 and $1,000. If you accept the settlement, the claim will be resolved quickly, but you will not be able to get any more money for injuries. It’s almost always in your best interests to reject the initial settlement and demand more money after you have a clear idea of how much your medical expenses will cost. 4. You might not get as much for your car. If your car is a total loss, you might not get as much for it as you’re expecting. Your car’s total loss value is determined by taking its market value and adjusting it based on the car’s mileage and condition. Your car may be worth much less to your insurer than you would have gotten for selling it. The total loss settlement is negotiable, though, and you can get a higher price if you have an independent adjuster appraise its value. 5. There may be expenses you have to pay for that you’re not expecting. Most insurance companies have limits as to what they will pay for rental cars, storage costs, towing charges, and other expenses. The only way to know for sure what you will have to pay out of pocket is to ask. Be sure to hold onto your receipts for any expenses in case you can have them reimbursed. Ultimately, insurance companies try to spend the least possible amount on handling a claim. This is not to say that they’ll always cut corners or give poor-quality work, but it does mean that they’re not always generous with information that could save you money on claims. If you’re involved in an accident, it’s a good idea to do as much independent research as possible to make sure you’re protecting yourself. Brenda Hartman writes about tips and secrets to successfully navigating car insurance. If you are looking for a better, more reliable insurance deal, Brenda recommends looking into car insurance for business.

Five Claims Secrets Your Insurer Doesn’t Tell You

Making Online Payday Loans A Success

Is your mailbox full of unread credit card statements from the credit card companies? If answered yes, you should always make sure that you stay in track with your credit card bills so that you don’t accrue unnecessary charges and fees. There are ways in which you can eliminate your debt burden and live a debt free life. Debt consolidation and debt reduction are the most common ways that are resorted to by the debtors. While one has a positive impact on your credit score, the other will trash your credit score. If you too are confused about using debt consolidation or debt reduction, here are some points that you may consider before seeking help of any of the aforementioned option. Debt consolidation – When is it a good idea for the debtors? When you have to split your income among multiple credit cards, you can certainly think of consolidating your debts into a single monthly payment. If you choose a professional debt consolidation company to consolidate your debts, you can get a debt consultant who can assist you in negotiating with your creditors and lowering the interest rates on the credit card accounts. The debt consultant will assess your personal finances and see whether or not this is the right time to consolidate debts. If they feel that you can’t repay your debts on your own, you can easily start making payments through them and thereby reduce the monthly payments. While you start making the monthly payments to the debt consolidation program, this boosts your credit score in the long run. Debt reduction – Why isn’t this a good idea to repay debts? Well, if you’re someone who is worried about the repayment ability due to your meager income, you can certainly go for debt reduction or debt settlement. Here you can waive off a portion of your outstanding balance and facilitate the debt repayment procedure so that you can immediately get out of debt. You have to enroll yourself with a debt settlement plan through which the debt consultant can negotiate with your creditors in order to make them agree to principal balance forgiveness. However, the only point that makes debt settlement a bad option for the debtors is the negative impact that it has on your credit score. The better your score was before you settled your debts, the worse will be the impact on it. Therefore, if you have saved enough money, then you should contact a debt consolidation program instead of a debt settlement program so that you can protect your credit score in the long run. Therefore, when you’re drowning in a sea of credit card debt, you should make sure that you choose the most appropriate debt solution so that you do not repent later. Educate yourself on the pros and cons of the debt solutions so that you may choose the best according to your budget and affordability.

Festive Season Over. You Are in Debt? How Should You ...

If you’re having a tough time in paying your bills and making monthly payments, then you’re likely looking for possible solutions to pay off your bills. While there are different options that can vary, depending on the situation you’re in, one way to go about paying off your bills in the short term is to take out a loan. Getting a personal loan when you’ve fallen on hard times or have bad credit can be difficult – but it is not impossible. Let’s take a look as to how you can get a personal loan, even if you have less than perfect credit. In the finance world there are companies who directly deal with those who have problems with credit and debt, and they find practical solutions in an effort to get you out of debt. While this loan may have interest, or may be a small amount, reaching out to debt management companies to see what they can offer you in terms of loan options is a good place to start. If you consult with one of their experts, they may also be able to offer you other services like a debt review, which will allow you to eliminate some of the debt you owe, while also working out a feasible monthly payment plan. But what if you’re still determined to get a personal loan to fix your credit problems? Then there are private lenders and finance companies who in many cases will loan you the money that you need. When a lender calculates the probability of a loan, they determine whether you will be a risky investment, in terms of whether or not you’ll actually pay off the loan. When this risk is factored, they do take into account your past credit history, which is the pitfall of obtaining a personal loan for many who have bad credit. Think that this makes it impossible for you to get the loan that you need to get you back on track? This isn’t the case! If you own a home or any other form of valuable property that can be used as collateral, then you will have the potential to get the loan that you’re looking for. If you’re willing to offer these assets up as collateral, with the possibility of losing them if you don’t pay your loan back, then many companies will loan you the money. This is something you need to be careful, as the more debt you’re in, the more likely that your assets and collateral will be taken from you when you can’t pay. Don’t have a substantial form of collateral? Then another way to get a personal loan with bad credit is with a payday loan. Credit checks are not actually required for the approval of a payday loan, so having bad credit will not impede on your ability to get this kind of loan. Make sure that you fully understand any terms included in this pay day loan, as it can come back to haunt you if you don’t read the fine print.
