Allergy Wars

Leave a Comment
I recently saw a comment on a parenting forum where someone suggested that children with food allergies be required to go to a "special" school to do away with the difficulty of things like nut free classrooms.  This immediately got my hackles up, but then I thought, "I bet they have no clue what parenting an allergic child is really like."

Rock It Up

Leave a Comment
When Thing 2 began to get horrible eczema patches along the diaper line of her sensitive formulation disposable diapers, we knew it was time to finally take the leap to cloth.  The biggest question was, what brand should we choose?  If you've ever looked into cloth diapers you know that, between commercial brands and WAHM diapers, there are about 3.7 million options, gave or take a million.  For us, the answer was, apparently, simple:  My husband chose Rock-A-Bums because, "They have one that looks like a storm trooper!"...Turns out, his logic was sound.  Read on to find out why, see the BRAND NEW PATTERNS, and enter to win your very own rockin' stash.
