Kids and family

Speaking of kids, I came across this article today (I don’t have the website in front of me where I found this but, as soon as I find it, I will post a link to it). Anyway, Here’s a mom who manages to juggle her career as a scientist and family in a rather unique way. Check out Canopy Meg.

Kids and toys

I guess it was this latest article from the AP about another recall of kids jewelry and toys that prompted me to write this post. Add to that the recent articles about Mattel and Fisher-Prices being part of these recalls , that Wal-mart and Disney will now begin testing their toys and on top of that,  a recent article in the Wall Street Journal which was entitled “China to Ban Lead Paint in Toys” and it makes you wonder, where was the oversight before this.  As a parent, it concerns me.
