    I’m not ready to put my son into child care yet, but when the time comes I think I’ll just tell myself that this will be a good thing for him. He’ll be getting used to interacting with other adults, and with kids his age, and that will help him get ready for his first year of school!

    Keep in mind that putting your daughter into child care is not only a question of convenience for you. It will allow you to focus on your work, but it will bring her many benefits. She won’t stay home forever, she’ll have to go to school someday, and I think starting with child care is a good thing.

    I just looked it up for you, there’s a Park ‘N Fly at the Toronto airport. So you can either use their self-park services, or get a valet. Of course it’s not free, but if you want to make sure your car will be safe while you’re gone, I really recommend this.

    Nowadays, the newest vacuum cleaners come with all kinds of functions and features that could confuse the technically-challenged person. There are bagless vacuums and bagged vacuums. I’ve had both before and my preference is for the ones with bags.

    You can only do everything within your power to make sure it is packaged properly and securely. You’re right, things can happen and damage can occur, especially during international shipping.

    There are things that are not going to be in your control. However, whatever is in your control, try to do the best you can.

    Make sure to palletize your cargo. This does help. Try to use packaging that has some kind of impact protection. Sometimes a combination of protective measures can make the difference.

    Try to also place your shipment in a crate for further protection. Of course, these measures will cost more but in my opinion, it’s really worth it.

    Make sure your doors are strong and cannot be easily broken. Make sure it has an eye viewer. If you have sliding doors, make sure to use something that keeps it secure, such as a wood bar.

    It’s cool that you’re getting a custom mascot costume! I know you said you would not be wearing the costume, but maybe you can make sure the person who will wear it knows what to do when there are kids around, in case they are afraid or uneasy.

    For example, mascots should wait for children to approach them first. If the child doesn’t seem at ease, the mascot should stay away. They should also not hesitate to bend down or to squat so they can be at the child’s level and appear less big and scary.

    I think making a list of places and services you will need after a big move is a brilliant idea! I hope you enjoy your new homeowner life.

    Since you can find information about each locksmith that serves your area by visiting their website, look for one that is well-established in your community. Make sure they are licensed, insured and bonded, and that they offer 24/7 emergency services.

    If all seems good, you could try to find a few online reviews from their previous customers. This should help you make a good choice.

    Yes, you can cook pretty much anything you want in it, just keep in mind that it will be cooked much faster than in a kitchen oven because pizza ovens produce a lot of heat.

    Apart from pizzas, I use mine for bread and pies. There are people who use their outdoor pizza oven instead of their BBQ, so yeah, you can cook meat and potatoes and all that good stuff in it!

    I do have an outdoor pizza oven! It’s a Forno Venetzia oven, it looks great and it’s very efficient. We use it even in the winter, and let me tell you that gathering around the warm pizza oven when it’s cold outside feels great!

    I do feel like there’s a difference in the taste of the pizzas we cook in it. First, they cook a lot faster than in a kitchen oven, it only takes a few minutes! Then, they acquire some amazing smokey taste that you could never get in a kitchen oven…

    Your husband will be delighted by this birthday gift, and so will you!
