Well I ______________ and my children are fine!

I am SO tired of people acting as if birth intervention is necessary and "not so bad."

I am tired of hearing that formula is "just as good as breastmilk."

I am tired of parents claiming vaccine reactions are "rare or the parents are acting like victims."

I am tired of hearing women claim their lead-lipstick and chemical cosmetics are "fine in moderation.

I am tired of hearing people call organic meat/dairy "a scam.

And on and on and on....



Look AROUND people! If it hasn't "happened to you" or if your children are "just fine" then count your blessings!

  1. I never want my daughter to be just "fine." I want her to be as fabulous as she can be. Thank you for this post. It's nice to know that someone else feels this way about that stupid "just fine" line that is used as the justification for all the bad things we have done!
