Yes? YES! I know, how hard it is. For me anyway. Maybe you’re perfect but it is hard for me to understand the paths people take because I just can’t get over how wonderful my natural birth was compared to my unplanned, medically unnecessary c-section.
And I love this sweet pregnancy / tot photo.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said it believes beef trimmings known officially as “Lean Finely Textured Beef” are safe to eat. They said today that all food purchased for the National School Lunch Program undergoes safety testing, including the Lean Finely Textured Beef. (USDA allows up to 15 percent of a finished food item, like a hamburger or taco, to be made with the Lean Fine Textured Beef.) One way the industry says it kills harmful bacteria is by spraying ammonia gas on the meat long before it is served. Nonetheless, it announced that owing to “customer demand” it will give schools the chance to opt out of it in the next school year.
