1. I have used the T.V. as a "babysitter".
How on earth do you think I have time to write blogs, anyway? Plus, I prefer to think of it as "keeping them company".
2. My child eats vegetables from a can. With salt.
But, hey, he eats vegetables, right??
3. I use candy to bribe my child.
Specifically suckers. And more specifically, Dum Dums. Until yesterday, when I found some organic, dye-free suckers. So, that's basically fruit, right?
4. I create "teachable moments" because I'm lazy.
"Drew, can you go get the GRAY shoes off the BLACK mat?" See? Teaching colors and staying on the couch all at the same time.
5. I put sprinkles on my kid's oatmeal.
I do make him choose and say the color, so again, fabulous "teachable moment". My hub actually started this one, but I have done nothing to fix it. And it makes breakfast time a lot more fun. For him, and me!
6. My house is probably filled with all kinds of bad plastics.
And I say probably because I'm not even sure which ones are bad. This whole BPA thing came up at a time when I was pretty much exhausted from worrying about all the awful things facing my child, and after the time when I had already fed him for 9 months using bottles that were not BPA-free. And yes, I put them in the microwave and dishwasher. Call the BPA police. Maybe they'll had wash all my plastics for me.
See? Don't you feel better about yourself now? Moms unite! Fight the paranoia power!
