My Favorite segment of the Today shows is "Secret Filth Exposed".
Yesterday they had one on those cute little bath toys that our children love to play with. Lately I've been allowing my toddler to take more frequent baths, mainly because it's time for me to relax while she entertains herself. When I saw this story I was appalled.
They found that these bath toys were contaminated with fecal matter. Ecoli & Strep were just 2 of the bacterias they found on these toys. The toys with holes let germs thrive. When they opened them up they found that they were positive for staph, known for skin infections (for you moms with kids that have eczema).
Also, watch were you place these toys. Each flush of a toilet disperses fecal matter up to 20 ft.
SO...How do we let our kids enjoy their bath without the possibility pf getting sick?
♥ Give them toys without holes.
♥ After every bath, wipe them off with Alcohol or peroxide, and let them thoroughly dry.
♥ Watch for Black stuff! The moment you see black stuff build up, throw them away!
And my life is filled with laundry, chores, wiping butts, picking noses, playgroups, cooking dinner, and way too much responsibility and decisions.
I've read many blogs in search of other moms like me. Yes they're plenty of "mom" blogs, but I want to write to those moms out there, in their 20s, with little money to entertain themselves or their kids.
I will be doing reviews on products, and how to enjoy your time with your kids and still be "young." After all, we are YOUNG. Just because we have kids and a family, doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves.
