You also must be careful giving kids raisins, because they fit perfectly up their little noses. After the 2nd time of having to pin my son down and dig in his nose with tweezers or blow in his mouth with one nostril closed to get raisins out, we stopped giving him raisins, and I stopped eating them as well, 4 booger filled rosins was enough to turn me off them for life, he was only about 18 months old at the time and he'll be 21 in 2 weeks.
This made me laugh harder than it probably should have! I was just picturing it!!! Ugh!!! The things mothers do for their children!!!
Someone brought up Jill’s post about the women in her small group at church praying for each other and suggested that she might be doing something independently. My understanding is that mega churches are much like large lecture classes in college. Sometimes you sit with everyone and listen, and sometimes you join an assigned smaller group and talk. That’s the kind of group Jill’s talking about. Derick and other men are in it; Jill didn’t choose to join it; and the other women aren’t choosing to spend time with her.
I was told to start feeding my son all of the potential allergen foods to my son around 6 months by both my pediatrician and at the public health clinic where he receives his vaccinations. In Alberta, I believe that is the recommendation unless your child already has had an allergic reaction to a food or if there is a history in the family of a severe allergy. I was told to introduce those foods one at a time and to watch my son after he had eaten whatever it was to make sure he wasn't having a reaction. Also, it was recommended that you keep giving your baby those foods, especially nuts, on a regular basis to keep up the exposure. I used to put some peanut butter in his oatmeal.
We have friends whose son is allergic to eggs so they were advised to do things slightly differently because of this.
My husband was allergic to a lot of things as a child but thankfully has grown out of all of them. I have great sympathy for anyone whose children have allergies. It must be so nerve wracking.

Dad's youtube is fun. (https://www.youtube.com/user/elohimisjesus/videos) Lots of "The End is Near" stuff. He's a fan of Kent Hovind. Many of his videos have like a whopping 10 views. His wife, on the other hand, with her cultish stepford children/morning routine videos has millions in a week.
No. That is not fair. The kids are cute. Mom, OTOH, reminds me of one of these but all grown up:
I don't know what to address first: the kid named Nefertiti Bambi Butterfly, which for some reason I think is the worst of all of the names, or the weird, fake-modern art concept video explaining the really pretty boring story that Jenna met a boy at church, fell in love, and married him.
Where to even begin with all this...
