I would have never thought...

I got this interesting email today warning about the toxicity of hand santizers, and the dangers they could impose on small children.
So much of the stuff that comes through our inbox is a bunch of garbage, but every once in a while you get something on the up, and up.
Very scary stuff...

And to think we are REQUIRED to buy this stuff for their school supplies! (SMB)

Please read below and follow the link:

Ok. I don't know where to begin because the last 2 days of my life have
been such a blur. Yesterday, My youngest daughter Halle who is 4, was rushed
to the emergency room by her father for being severely lethargic and incoherent. He was called to her school by the school secretary for being "very VERY sick." He told me that when he arrived that Halle was barely sitting in the chair. She couldn't hold her own head up and when he looked into her eyes, she couldn't focus them. He immediately called me after he scooped her up and rushed her to the ER.

When we got there, they ran blood test after blood test and did x-rays,every test imaginable. Her white blood cell count was normal, nothing was out of the ordinary. The ER doctor told us that he had done everything that he could do so he was sending her to Saint Francis for further test.

Right when we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher had come to the ER, and after questioning Halle's classmates, we found out that she had licked hand sanitizer off her hand. Hand sanitizer, of all things. But it makes sense. These days they have all kinds of different scents and when you have a curious child, they are going to put all kinds of things in their mouths.

When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the ER doctor there to check her blood alcohol level, which, yes we did get weird looks from it but they did it. The results were her blood alcohol level was 85% and this was 6 hours after we first took her. There's no telling what it would have been if we would have tested it at the first ER.

Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools have taken this out of the classrooms of all the lower grade classes but what's to stop middle and high schoolers too? After doing research off the internet, we have found out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be fatal in a toddler. For her blood alcohol level to be so high was to compare someone her size to drinking something 120 proof.

So please PLEASE don't disregard this because I don't ever want anyone to go through what my family and I have gone through.

Today was a little better but not much. Please send this to everyone you know that has children or are having children. It doesn't matter what age. I just want people to know the dangers of this.
Thank you

I absolutely LOVE the show Smallville, and I look forward to it every week. It is my one treat for the week. The season is over until the Fall, and it sucks. :( There are always re-runs. Tom Welling has the most incredible smile, and those eyes...YUM!
(I need help, I know :)

Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, and Colin Firth are incredible actors, and very easy to look at. I am a sucker for Australian, and English accents, and rebels with a cause. :)

I guess I am a sucker for brunettes! :)

Came across this young adult Grizzly bear this afternoon on our way to Wells, BC....what a rare treat! He didn't seem to be afraid of cars, or people. There was even this woman that got out of her car to take pictures....what an idiot!!!!!

Our New Sofa! :)

This is our new microfibre double recliner sofa we got on Saturday. It is really comfy. The microfibre is a suede-like material. :)

It's Friday! :)

Well, it has been a while since I have written an update really. We are doing well here. Greg likes his job, and is doing really well. I am making new friends, and getting out. I joined Curves a month ago. It has helped me a lot to get that "me" time every week, plus get much needed exercise. Walking with Molly just isn't enough, and I do need time to myself to de-stress, and unwind. I go 2-3 times a week.

Greg, and I have a date on Saturday!! It is the first time we will leave Molly alone with a sitter. I met her at Curves, she is a really nice girl. We are going to go for dinner, and to see Spiderman 3.

It was high time we got a sitter, but just haven't had the resources really in finding one, since we were new in town. I am a little bit nervous leaving her for the first time, but we will only be a couple of blocks away...small towns are great for that. :) We are even going to walk since the theatre, and restaurant are so close.

It will be nice to have time together. We need that as a couple, and Molly needs to have time to be without us too. She is growing more independent each day, but she loves her mommy, and daddy.

I invited the sitter over last night to spend some time with Molly, and I just to give Molly the chance to get to know her a little better. She met Molly on Monday.
She spent two hours with us, and Molly just took to her, like she was one of the family. I went upstairs for a few minutes, and left them alone. I came back down, and watched from around the corner. Molly, and the sitter just sat there, and played. Molly didn't make a sound. It was awesome! :) So, I think she will be ok.

We are also going to get a new couch this weekend, hopefully as part of my Mother's Day gift. We haven't had one since we moved, and we desperately need one. It isn't so fun taking turns sitting in a the rocker glider that belongs in Molly's nursery to watch movies together. Sitting on the floor is incredibly uncomfortable. I just hope they have the one we saw in the flyer online. I am going to go today to check.

Molly is 11 months old today! It is so hard to believe that in one month she will be a year old!! Where has the time gone?

Anyhow, not much else to report. We hope you have a most lovely weekend, and a wonderful Mom's Day to all you Moms out there!!
