Virtual GNO - And A Giveaway!

So much is on my mind. The nightmarish bully situation in Florida. The decision weather or not to have my girls vaccinated for H1N1. And that crazy, and highly suspicious, balloon ride. (I really don't want to go on about it but that Dad? He's kinda nuts. And this family has been on Wife Swap not just once, but twice? I actually saw one of those episodes - I'm embarrassed to say - and I couldn't believe what a jerk he was. Now, well, this whole thing is just odd. Click here to see Joel McHale's take on him.)

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:
