    I got this quote from an advertisement on a game online. Didn't say for what but it was inspiring. Made me think about how to get further in life.

    Who I look Up To In My Life

    I look up to my mom. She inspired me to do a lot with my life. She has always been there for me and wants me to be open with everything and not be scared to tell her anything. She has never judged me because of anything I've done. She is a really nice person and likes to joke around. She helps people for a living by saving peoples lives. She works as a nurse. I wanted to be like my mom but I don't know how she does it but she does. She handles all sorts of things that I cant. It amazes me. But I'm glad she can because she saved my dads life. Not only once but technically twice. Not only is she good with adults she is very good with kids as well.  Which I like doing is being around kids and caring for them like she does. I love my mother. She'll be forever be my role model.

    Child Care Article

    Child care has its benefits for children's education. In the article 'Child Care Cost, Already High, Outpace Family Outcome Gains' written by Bill Chappell states, "Unlike all other areas of education investment, including higher education, families pay the majority of costs for early education." So paying a little more will give children some early education and possibly a better future. Many parents agree and go with it because they want whats best for their kids. But some parents disagree and just pay more for a home babysitter.
