Arsenic in Rice?!?!?

Ya know, I thought I was doing the right thing by keeping Harry away from wheat (gluten) for his first year of life. There are of course differing opinions out there, but it it couldn't hurt... so I thought. Instead of wheat, we give Harry a lot of rice-based foods. Yesterday I came across this article. WHA!!??!?!? There are concerning levels of arsenic in rice. It's in pretty much all rice-based foods. The article says to limit children's intake of rice. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-dgie the whale.

Looks like someone will probably start eating wheat-based stuff a little earlier than planned. He actually has had a minimal amount of wheat already. We bought some YoToddler yogurt back in June or July and didn't realize there was some cereal in it, whoops. And if gluten is passed through breast milk then he also had some while I was pumping.

Look at how cute Harry's outfit was yesterday.


I love that hoodie! We bought it at Once Upon a Child last year.



A treat for mom :)

Is anyone else excited for the return of Parks and Rec and The Office tonight? Parks and Rec was epic last season so I'm really looking forward to it. The promos are very promising. I'm a little more apprehensive about The Office, my alltimenumberone favorite TV show (seasons 1-5). The past couple of seasons have been terrible so I'm really crossing my fingers they redeem themselves for the last season. The show's original show runner is back to hopefully bring the show back to it's prime. Here's a great look back at the past eight seasons.
