Sooo Many Things to Be Paranoid About

Why is it so hard to raise kids today? Hmmmm. It could be the many gazillion things that we have to watch out for. Why can't companies just make things that are healthy and safe for us? Why is it so hard to be the kind of company that is socially responsible? Why do they put these things in? Below are some of the things I've been worrying about.
  • Lead in toys
  • Lead in balsamic and red wine vinegar
  • BPA being leeched into our food and drink through unsafe plastics, tin cans, soda cans, baby bottles
  • Hormones in milk causing early puberty
  • Household-phthalate-exposure causing my son to possibly be feminized
  • Nitrates in our meat
  • Toys that cause children to go into coma after swallowing them
  • Teflon poisoning my food
  • Parabens in our sunblock

With all these things to worry about, it's no wonder I'm getting all these gray hairs!

Few and Far Between

I've been tired and lazy about posting on my blog. Sorry. There's a little something called life that sometimes gets in the way of blog writing. The entire time I've been gone, I would think of something to blog about and then I would just be too tired to actually blog about it.

Everyone has always told me that going from 0 children to 1 child is the hardest. Then 1 to 2 children is hard and then from 2 children to 3 children is a piece of cake. I really would disagree. Increasing your brood by one is hard each time. I'm not quite sure how Brillig does it with 4 young ones and STILL has time to blog.

Little Sissy was born on July 24th at 4:34am. She weighed 6 lbs, 3oz and was 20 inches long. It was an easy labor. I only had one half push and she was out (I guess the birth canal gets more slippery with each successive birth). The Princess and JR. peanut both love her very much. They are constantly wanting to touch, hug, and kiss her.



Thanks everyone for inquiring about me.
