Yep, I did it. I blame Mimi for tempting me and sending me wife beaters for my kid… BUT, I dressed him in a wife beater and camo pants! Ha! Take that, Middle East! You can take the redneck out of Idaho, but you can’t take the Idaho out of the redneck!
I told Stu we should take a picture of him drinking Pepsi out of a baby bottle too. (You know what’s really sad? There was an American couple here who worked with our company that gave their 2-year-old pop on a daily basis. How sad and child abuse-y is that?)
Speaking of blatant child neglect, I watched a 20/20 documentary on the children of Appalachia last week. If you didn’t get to see it, see it. It was sad to think that while we’re sending aid to countless countries around the world, we’re letting our own people live in such dire, uneducated conditions. These kids have a dental condition known as “Mountain Dew Mouth” where they have rotten teeth because of their over consumption of Mountain Dew, which is used as a type of inexpensive anti-depressant for these people because of it higher-than-other-pop’s caffeine content. The parents give it to their toddlers and many of the kids never see a dentist or learn about proper oral hygiene. It is pathetic and so easily avoided with just a little bit of education.
Here we are worried because we know the water we drink doesn’t have fluoride in it like our tap water at home has (we drink bottled here). So we take the extra steps to brush more than once a day and floss daily. Education is everything, as always.
