Are Celebrity Marriages Doomed to Fail???

I was surfing the net and came across an article about Kourtney Kardashian expecting her second baby with her boyfriend Scott Disick. Let me first say congratulations to her and her family. As I was reading the article I started thinking about how many celebrities have a great relationship or marriage. I thought about Will and Jada Smith right away even though Jada was rumored to have been with Mark Anthony. They were the only couple that came to mind. Let's face it, even the best marriages are tough. My question to anyone that happens to read this post is, if given the opportunity, would you have a reality show about your marriage? Do you think your marriage would last?

French Toddler Dies after Being Locked Inside Washing Machine

This is terrible! A French 3 year old little boy died after been locked inside a washing machine. This is just awful.  His father was arrested for the crime last Friday. According to the news story the little boy was being punished for flushing a classmate's drawing down the toilet. The mother is also being charged for not preventing a crime and not assisting a person in danger.  According to the toddler's 5 year old sister, this isn't the first time this has happened. My question is, how could his mother let this happen?  She is suppose to protect her little boy.

Are Kindergartens Too Fat???

I read an article about today's kindergartens being heavier than kindergartens in the 1970s and 1980s.  I was a little surprised to read this but just a little.  The reason is because many parents choose to feed their kids convenience foods such as MacDonald's instead of a home cook meal.  Don't get me wrong, I am not saying I never give my kids fast food but I give it to them in moderation.  I am also mindful of portion sizes when I give my kids this type of food.  I think a lot of people today don't realize the amount of calories that go into a value meal at a fast food restaurant.  Heck, one value meal can be 1,900 calories. That's insane! Parents are also feeding their kids way too much junk food. Like I said before, moderation is the key along with incorporating more fruits and veggies into your kids diet.  

Since many adults today have bad eating habits and are overweight then it is not surprising that our kids are becoming heavier than kids their age 40 years ago.

BPA in canned food

As a mother of 3 young children, I am concerned about the food they eat and any potential side effects. This is why I was so alarmed when I came across an article stating that  BPA(bisphenol A) can be found in the lining of canned food and beverages. In case you aren't familiar with the BPA, it  is an industrial chemical used to make certain plastics. I first became familiar with it after having my 2nd baby when bottle makers began making bottles BPA free. According to researchers, BPA can seep into the food in canned goods. It has been linked with diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease in humans and has been shown to interfere with reproductive development in animals.

So if BPA is in canned goods then I now have to minimize the amout of canned goods my family consumes. Heck, we just had Progressive soup last night for dinner.  I probably would have been better off getting processed burgers and fries from McDonalds. Lol.  According to a Harvard study, urine samples from a test group of people who ate 1 can of soup for 5 days had more than a 1,200 percent increase in BPA.  There are still debates on the harmful effects of BPA but in the meantime I choose to stay away from it as much a possible.

Cursing Baby Doll

The hot topic with a lot of moms is a Toys R Us baby doll named “You & Me Interactive Play & Giggle Triplet Dolls”. It looks and acts like a baby doll until it says B****! According to Toys R Us, the doll is just speaking baby talk. They are standing behind their product and refuse to remove it from the shelves. Click on the link below and decide for yourself if the doll is saying B****.

There are a lot of parents out there outraged about the doll but I say just don’t buy it. I do think Toys R Us should pull the doll from the shelves but you have to think about it from a business perspective. If this company has a huge inventory of this item then they can stand to lose a whole lot of money by pulling it from the shelves because of some people’s interpertations of what the doll is saying.
Like I said, if you think the doll is saying B**** then just dont buy it. There are a lot worse things to worry and stress about in the world than a cursing doll.
