Yes, you read that right! Free condoms for 11 year old’s in 6th grade! Do you think 11 and 12 year old’s in middle school should be provided with free condoms without parental consent? Would you want your child’s school providing your preteen with condoms? I know this is a very controversial topic so I’m not even going to post my opinion but I thought it was worth posting the article. You can read more about it here.

If you’re looking for a sweet holiday story that will bring a smile to your face well I found one for you! The Durant Fire Department in Oklahoma was trying to decide what to put on their Christmas Cards this year and came up with such a cute idea. Normally they put a picture of the Fire House or a picture of all the guys standing in front of the Fire House but this time one of the wife’s decided it would be pretty special to put a picture of all the babies born to the firemen this year. Considering the depart is only made up of 33 firemen having 6 babies born in 2016 is a pretty big deal not to mention all the adorableness! Also, you have to keep in mind the magic it must have took to get all six of these little ones to cooperate for the shoot!
You’ve drank after your child and at the same time enjoyed their backwash.
You know as a parent you’ve fished things out of the toilet with your bare hands too.
and of course as a parent you have eaten nasty left overs your child has touched every piece of too! lol!
Let your cutie pie wipe her dirty hands all over you.
And of course caught vomit. Maybe even caught it with your own hands too!
Here’s how the story goes: Child throws pacifier. Pacifier lands in dirt. Child cries for pacifier. Mom licks pacifier and hands it back to child. Child is once again content. The end.
Cleaned dead critters from your laundry! If you have boys and haven’t done this yet… you will.
Dug up his nose to get a toy or some other object out.
I couldn’t imagine chewing on my own toenails. But when your baby is sweet little itty bitty toes, the thought of putting sharp clippers near their squirming feet is terrifying. So instead you bite them.
Stiffed your cute little baby’s diaper!
If you’ve ever wondered to yourself how it’s possible that babies around the world have survived billions of years of history sleeping with their parents when it’s supposedly so dangerous, then this book is defiantly for you! If your family and friends are always telling you your wrong, your doing it wrong or it’s dangerous, this book is for you! Personally I highly recommend co-sleeping. I didn’t realize how healthy it is for your child’s mental development until I came home from the hospital with my very first child! Your baby needs and craves that closeness and requires those oh so important snuggles because it helps reduce night time anxiety and night terrors in young babies & children resulting in a confident child. It actually keeps them relaxed, calm and comforted. That’s why when your try to put your infant down after they have fallen asleep in your arms they tend to wake up immediately. When they are very young they’re extremely aware of their surroundings. It’s simple nature because mom is their life line for food, warmth, and meeting their needs. This idea of putting your infant down in a beautifully decorated nursery across or down the hall from you is actually a new concept that started in the last 100 years or so. If you think about it you’ll notice that it’s natural to co-sleep and bed share with your baby. Just abot every animal you can think of sleeps with their young. Think about a dog that just had a litter of puppies or a lion, bear, monkey, etc. They all sleep with their young. Why is that? If you are stumbling through the early days of parenting wondering why your baby screams bloody murder every time you lay him in his crib, think about why that is. My little Helena certainly told me right away! This book is an incredibly easy read and isn’t overly long and hard to read. The author offers many different options and leaves it to each family to decide what works best for them. For each option, he also offers information about when it would not be safe. Also, Dr. McKenna goes on to explain, how the Juvenile Products Commission is actually lobbyists for the crib-makers (sounds like a few mixed interest there right). Dr. McKenna’s credentials are impeccable. He also has some really great information about SIDS. Did you know that when a baby sleeps in their own crib they are more likely to go into what’s called stage 3 and 4 sleep meaning they’re in a much deeper sleep and the baby who sleeps in the bed with their parents go into a stage 1 or 2 sleep which reduces the chances of SIDS by about 50%!!! The babies that are in a deeper sleep (stage 3 or 4) have a much harder time waking themselves up resulting in SIDS. This is especially true for breastfeeding babies who are co-sleeping/bed sharing and nursing during the night. It’s the same theory as babies sleeping with a pacifier.
Basically this book explains the “proper” way to bed share!
