My Life as a Mom

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

Well, it's time to baby-proof the house again. Our youngest is 6 months old - and moving around on his own. I wasn't expecting this quite so soon, but I'm not surprised, ether - he's been physically strong and determined to go where he wants to go for a while now!

I also try to keep the amount of household toxins to a bare minimum! Especially when dealing with stuff like carpet cleaning solution. I saw Kelly Preson discussing toxic carpet cleaning solution, and how that may have been the cause of her son's bout with Kawasaki Syndrome, a horrible disease that children can get.

So, we have hardwood floors here, and we try to keep really toxic cleaning solutions to a minimum, opting for more natural stuff whenever we can.
