Cool Mom Picks

There are so many October birthdays! On the 16th was Christopher's, and today is my mom's and Joel's. Happy birthday to all of you! We love you and miss you so much!

On an entirely unrelated note:
Safer Toy Guide 2007

Maybe its' because I have a teething-soon-to-be-crawling baby, maybe it's because I have two little boys who are rather rough on their toys (and I am sooo sick of gluing back together toys all day), but I've become kind of concerned about toy safety in the light of so many recent (toy) recalls. If you click on the button above, it will take you to a list, compiled by some moms, of safer alternatives. They are more expensive than cheap WalMart finds, but the stuff on that list looks like it's built to last -- and it's supporting indi toy makers (independant, rather than "big box" stores like WalMart, KB Toys and the like), as well.

(Did I say "toy" enough times in the above paragraph? Yup, I thought so too.)

For the moms who read this blog, click on over to the CoolMom blog -- they post interesting kid friendly things at least once a day!

That's one of the best pictures I've ever seen of Andrew. I just love his face in that photo. Great photo of the whole crew!

thanks for the post faith, i've definately opened up the teether packages and thought 'yuck, these smell so chemically nasty-and she's supposed to suck on them?'
