As If!

So Mattel should just be so embarrased. They had millions of toys recalled due to high amounts of lead levels and that can be very harmful for a child. And all of these toys were made in the good ol' U.S. of A...NOT! If they were there wouldn't be such a recall. They were all made in China. CHINA! When are the manufacturers going to learn that parents will pay a little more for QUALITY. We already pay for the crud that hits the shelves of the toy store. It's just so sad that it's come to this. Where is the common sense? Where is the trust in our country to make the items here? Yeah, Yeah, polution. Open factories and you have the United States destroying the ozone again. What IS the answer? Toothpaste. No no, toothpaste is not the answer but did you know Crest is made in the US and was not recalled this year. All toothpastes made in China were though. You Toms of Maine users were safe too.

So lets see there were toys recalled, pet food recalled, cars (mercedes benz) recalled, tires recalled, Sony recalled cameras. So what next? AS IF!
I really don't use this blog for my views like this but I am so sick of things being so tainted because they are made in China. It's just gross.

I know he's growing-up a bit, that's what kids do!

Jonathan started kindergarten. He gets up in the morning and puts on his khaki uniform pants or shorts and his green Page Private School polo shirt. He is no longer a toddler. He is indeed a little boy. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

So where has the time gone? He's a size 7 and in shoes a 1. He grew out of "T's" a while ago yes. You know, 3T, 4T... but where has the time gone?

He now asks questions like, mommy when I'm a teenager can I date? Not really knowing what to say I answer simply...sure. He responded with a YES like he just won a game. Too funny.

And music is getting to be different. Good-bye Playhouse Disney, Hello Radio Disney! He has his own play list in my iPod. I put it on for him while he's doing his homework. He gets homework every Monday and it's due back on Friday. Also I put it on when it's time to pick up toys so he can dance and pick-up at the same time. It makes it less of a chore that way and the room get cleaned up way faster. So anyway his playlist consists of Aly and AJ, Corbin Bleu, Music from HS Musical and HS Musical 2, Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers and other pre-teen artists. So crazy! But yes, he still has some Wiggly songs in there too. He said last night that he still loves The Wiggles. He watches an occasional Wiggly DVD every now and then but he never watched the shows anymore. I guess I'll keep the plates on my car a while longer. hee hee

So what's next for my little pre-tween? Well I'm taking him to see HI-5 Live tonight. That should be fun. Google it if you have no idea who they are. :)
