I think back to where we were one year ago- sitting in the birthing center holding our sweet little E!
Our world changed one year ago today. We no longer were just looking out for ourselves anymore; we had to think about someone else now.
Reading food and toy labels became second nature as well as researching the ingredients in our everyday products. We realized there are lots of nasty toxins in so many of our products, sometimes where we leased expected!
We decided to minimize her exposure to these toxins by buying non-toxic toys, eating organic, cleaning with water and vinegar, eliminating the toxins from our home, etc.
We felt such a tiny person shouldn’t be exposed to all these harmful toxins in our environment. Some people think we may be going overboard, but, this is the way we have decided to raise her. We just want to give little E the best non-toxic start as possible.
I know she will eat dirt and suck on a dollar store toy one day. But, if we can delay it, we will!
As my husband always says to me “You can’t have her live in a bubble forever.” Maybe not forever, but I like her little non-toxic bubble right now.
One day and step at a time, right?
