I was shocked and sad to read of his cancer in late July... I still can't believe how quickly he passed away. So sad. I hope the party can take his energy and dedication onward. I'm glad that he got to see his party go so far in the last election. I really enjoyed this tribute to him:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGu682FUDsQ
My DD has complained of discomfort on various occasions. An easy solution/cure has always been to avoid soap altogether, or just shampoo hair and then rinse, and then fill the tub with plain water and some baking soda for a soak. Another handy trick has been to boil water, let cool and then fill a small spray bottle with the water and a few drops of tea tree oil. After a pee (and always after a poop), use the spray to get the area clean. Then dry well of course.   I...
I used to drink a lot of diet soda. I regret that now. I know that at the time, I'd notice an odd lightheadedness/spacey feeling after drinking it, yet I refused to believe that aspartame or sucralose could possibly be allowed in our food if it was bad for us. Sigh. When I was 2 months into nursing my dd, I began reading more about it, and stopped.   I'll drink some soda with sugar in it once and awhile. Not healthy per se but far better than consuming a sketchy...
Oh wow, this story had me in tears. Just the descriptions of your dd's face underwater.... Terrifying. I'm thinking (too often?) these days about how difficult it could be to keep my own 3 year old as safe when my 2nd arrives in November. Will I be torn, will I have to make choices between them? How would I be able to run after/help my dd in a possible crisis with a tiny baby strapped to me or needing me?   This said, am so amazed (encouraged even) by how truly...
I'm late to this, but I wanted to add this link which I personally found helpful. http://thinktwice.com/Polio.pdf
I know that I love reading posts by dads. It's nice to see men here, open to joining in on "mothering" discussions/topics. :-)
Wow, it's been a looong time since that last concert... I guess one can hope that this one might get more media exposure, and perhaps a bit more good will come of it. I also hope they get more artists on board, and that this is just the beginning of on ongoing effort. I must say, Grahm Nash is still speaking his mind. :-)
Hollycrand, I have wanted a juicer for awhile now... I'll be getting one soon! :-)   Thing is though, it's not just that I'd prefer the non-Chinese-concentrate apple juice for taste/health reasons. I also think everyone should be able to get basic local apple juice/juice boxes in their community grocery store, particularly when they live near a place known for it's apples. I mean, like I wrote earlier, I have a family of local apple farmers who can no longer make a...
moss, I agree that whole food is preferable. By far! However; I personally like a glass of juice once a day, and am OK with giving it to my little one as a part of a balanced diet. When it comes specifically to apple juice, I read this article which talks about the term "made in Canada". http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/article769114.ece. "Made in Canada" simply means that 51 per cent of the production cost was incurred in Canada; the ingredients could come from...
I just read this article the other day, and although the news is terrible (I'd so love to hear/believe that it's really all over), I am glad that it's being reported on somewhere. http://english.aljazeera.net/indepth/features/2011/06/201161664828302638.html
