Cloudy Days and Ugly Little Things...

It hasn't started just yet but it is suppose to rain today.Due to this I didn't want to venture too far from my dads house so we just played in the driveway.

Chalk and Hot Wheels can be hours of entertainment and they were!Yesterday I had gone grocery shopping and it never fails I ALWAYS forget something.Even if I make a list there will be an item that within 24 hours I realize I needed and did not grab.Today that item was water.We had worked up quite a thirst playing and snacking on pretzels in the driveway,a quick stroll to 7-11 to buy a jug of water would remedy that so off we went.

Now with a 3 year old this type of store is a long list of "can I have this?","can I have this?" and some more "can I have this?".I don't know about you guys but I read everything.Most parents may not approve of their little girls wearing makeup.I love makeup so its not shocking that Heidi has an interest in it.I usually entertain this interest with some flavored chapsticks like Lip Smackers which is cruelty free.While we were in the store Heidi grabbed this and asked if she could have it.

Upon front inspection it seemed innocent enough,eyeshadows and what not.Warning label on it to tell you its not for 0-3 year olds.Heidi is 3 and 1/2 so I would trust her with it.I flipped it over though and was disgusted to find this warning label:

Ugh!This shouldn't be fit for anyone!Shame,shame,shame.This is why I avoid made in China products and urge everyone regardless of if you have kids or not at least for yourself too PAY ATTENTION to the things you use.You may be horrified at what people will sell you.

  1. well that just scared the heck out of me! I have a three year old who loves dressing up etc; what worries me is that if that warning hadnt been on there, i would've looked at the ingredients, thought to myself ew...and not known how TOXIC they really were.

  2. The sad thing is this "conforms to toy safety standard" so how freaking low are our standards?
