I don't mind the dog hair on the body but I hate the eating of dog hair and the constantly having to sweep so I get all the leaves, sticks, food bits, as well as the dog hair off the floor cuz that baby has some crazy little stuff finding abilities.
OH how this resonated with me. Everytime i have any interaction or even just see her number on the caller id. anxiety, adrenaline yuck.
We give our families a wish list and let them no that noisy/annoying toys are going to probably end up at their house for the kids to play with when they go to Grandma's/ grandpa's. My favorite line is what a great thing to have at grandma's house. We try to do a theme for each holiday like this year DSS needs books, or this year he would like trains, this has worked pretty well but we also return things or if no receipt I sell them to once upon a child and buy clothes...

Oh and if you are okay with eating animal products you can get dessicated cow liver tablets, Like vitamins so you don't have to eat liver.

It is also important for iron how you combine foods since some foods hinder your bodies ability to absorb iron. If...
