I'll have more to post later but the snow calls for a shovel so it probably won't be tonight.
Sane Mom mentioned in the comments the post by Lisa Belkin "Seeing All Men as Predators". I read that when it came out because Lenore Skenazy mentioned it in her blog "Free Range Kids" (listed on the side bar). She has a lot of good information (and a book) about raising your kids in today's society without fear. My kids were pretty free-range. They walked to/from school, rode bikes to friends, went to the park and played. And they weren't kidnapped, molested, or harmed in any way (well, scratch that. My eldest has scars from falling off her bike 2 blocks from home and walking home, knee bleeding profusely, crying. But she made it home, with the bike, and in the house before I knew anything had happened).
I just got a list of items that per the Health Insurance Act, should be covered by insurance. Unfortunately, I left it in the office. Sorry! I'll review it later.
Speaking of insurance, I would be happy to write a post on how to make friends and influence the people at your health insurance provider if people would like to read it. (Yes, I DO work for the dark side of the force, why do you ask?)
Last on the agenda: a discussion about breast is best or bottle is better. I have my reasons for wording it that way, which I will explain in the post.
Comments and post suggestions are welcome. And if you have something you want to post for feedback, let me know and I'll happily add you as a contributor.
Edit: I turned off the sign in feature so those who want to post comments don't have to sign in. Capcha will remain off for now because I really don't like capchas, but if the spam gets back one or the other will be set up. I'll ask for opinions before I do that though.
