When the tooth fairy forgets, moms unite

When the tooth fairy forgets, moms unite

A couple of weeks ago, I confessed on facebook how the tooth fairy forgot to visit my son. And, this wasn’t the first time. In all fairness to the hard working tooth fairy, this was Big Brother’s 8th baby tooth to be whisked away in the midnight hours and on that particular night…the tooth fairy slept through her midnight rounds.

I felt horrible, especially since my proud 6 year old had carefully written the tooth fairy a note about his special tooth…the eighth one.

That morning, the mom guilt was winning. So when I posted this as my status:

Sooo…the “Tooth Fairy” forgot to visit Big Brother last night. You know, I never missed a day moving that darn Elf on the Shelf, and THIS I forget!

I was secretly hoping for some moral support.

What I want every parent and grandparent to know about car seat safety

What I want every parent and grandparent to know about car seat safety

Driving.

Some of us spend more than half of our day in our cars. With our children.

We drive them to school, to day-care, to pre-school, to dance class, to soccer practice…you name it.

There’s no doubt we want them to be safe.

So, each and every time we buckle them in, shouldn’t we know and be reassured that we’re doing it in the safest way possible?

If you have not yet heard, The American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) came out with new car seat safety guidelines in March of this year.

Rocklin police warn about catalytic converter thefts

ROCKLIN, CA - Keep your vehicles in the garage or in a secure location warn Rocklin police after catalytic converters were stolen from nearly a dozen cars overnight.

Between Jan. 10 and Jan. 11, burglars hit Pinnacles Drive, near South Whitney Boulevard, taking catalytic converters from 10 Toyotas, Rocklin police's Mike Nottoli said.

Thieves take the converters to metal recyclers, who pay $100 for the rhodium and/or plutonium.

Repairing a vehicle stripped of the catalytic converter could cost at least $300.

Rocklin police urge residents to report suspicious activity by calling the non-emergency line at (916) 625-5400, or if witnessing an in-progress crime, call 911.

Yuba Co. pizza delivery woman fights off attackers

LINDA, CA - The plans of two assailants were foiled by a 22-year-old pizza delivery woman in Linda on Tuesday night.

Lt. Damon Gil of the Yuba County Sheriff's Dept. said the woman was accosted by two men after delivering a pizza to an apartment in the 6000 block of Alberta Avenue around 9 p.m.

According to Gil, the men approached the woman as she was leaving the complex and demanded money. When the woman refused, one of them pushed her and again ordered her to give up her money, said Gil. The woman refused again and punched the man in the face, knocking him to the ground in the process.

The delivery woman quickly ran from the scene with the men in pursuit, but made it to her vehicle in time to drive away and call the authorities, Gil said.

The woman was not hurt and no money was taken, said Gil.

Responding deputies were unable to find the attackers.

Shocking Co-Sleeping Ad: Effective or Offensive?

Shocking Co-Sleeping Ad: Effective or Offensive?

The City of Milwaukee has unveiled a new and controversial ad campaign aimed to warn parents about the “dangers” of co-sleeping. As you can see, the ad is quite shocking and morbid. And, clearly, they know that.

Apparently, Milwaukee has recently seen at least 10 infant deaths per year as a direct result of unsafe sleep environments. Their aim is to decrease these numbers and save lives.

However, does the ad go too far? Is co-sleeping with your baby equivalent to tucking him in next to a butcher knife?

Yikes.

The ad is certainly over the top and morbid in my opinion. I don’t like it. However, the message about safe sleep practices for our infants is an important one and certainly has us all talking about it.
