Happy Earth Day!

Landon celebrated by coloring a picture of a raccoon recycling using blue and green crayons, markers, and chalk. And look! He's wearing green! (Okay, that was purely coincidental.)

And then he wore some "I love the ocean" jammies to bed. That was coincidental, too, but once I realized how appropriate they were for the day, I had to take a picture. And this one makes me laugh, because I think it looks like he's doing the Twist.

As for me, I spent the day researching the many dangers of plastic toys and the benefits of more earth-friendly wood/cloth ones. It turns out that it's all rather overwhelming. Too bad I didn't know all this before I accumulated two years' worth of toys. Sigh. I'm choosing not to stress about it too much, though.

Have you considered BPA-free drinking cups and bottles? I read about these recently: (www.newbornfree.com). I just replaced my nalgene water bottle with a BPA-free stainless steel bottle.
