A mini-rant. I'll start off by saying that MIL is really great, I do love her, but she gave the kids in church today a sweet little bell that was made out a former LAND MINE. wtf?????? Afterwards I had to ask, um, is there any reason to assume that this doesn't have any lead in it? And she was smart enough to see right away that, no there is no reason to assume it's safe!!!!!! If she can't do that for herself, I just wish she would clear stuff with me BEFORE she gives it to dd! Apparently I am the only one in the family agonizing over this issue, everyone else is like, yes, the borrowed vacuum spews less dust, that is nice, and less lead, oh yeah, that too. It's nice that the house is cleaner, and less lead, oh yeah, that too. And I'm hating myself yelling at dd every 5 minutes, don't put your foot on the baby's face, let me clean your nails, don't put toys in your mouth dust is bad. Dirt is bad. You have lead in your blood, this is why you have to go to the doctor and get poked again.
