I’ve been feeling a bit, mmmm, how shall I say it... well... angry! No Darling, not at you of course, never at you. I’m frustrated at our current situation about how our country does their business! Not just over the business of stale mate politics in Washington, but a combination of greedy corporations, uninformed consumers, greedy corporations, and did I mention greedy corporations?
Now you know me Darling, I’m all for sexy MILF talk, I’m up for juicy conversations involving bad Mommys, heck... I’m even up for screaming at Adele for singing to my Hubby, but I just can’t not talk to you about our countries current situation just because it will make me ‘P C’... besides, when am I ever politically correct anyways?? Oh Caffe, be careful what you say...
I don’t think I need to be careful when all I’m doing is informing you... my close, personal, Dear Dear Friend! I just want what’s best for you and if we can chat about things that matter, then that makes our friendship that much stronger.
The reason I sit upon my high horse as one hater has proclaimed that I did and write the things I do... you know... I tell Mommys to wise up, I talk about bad parenting... the list is endless when it comes to topics about being a Good Mommy is because I’m an excellent Mommy who is aware of the environment around me. What the heck are you talking about Caffe?! Being aware makes a good Mommy and I’m very aware so I must be excellent!
I’ve chatted about awareness before in a Mommy Lesson, but the awareness I’m talking about today is this...
Did you know that the cosmetic industry is not regulated? Do you know what that means Darling? It means that the cosmetic industry is self regulated and that they can put anything they want on their labels... anything! This means they can use the words, Natural or Safe or anything they want and they don’t have to mean it. Wonderful huh? This includes shampoos, lotions, cosmetics... LIPSTICKS!!! And guess where many unwanted and harmful chemicals are found?... BABY SHAMPOO.
Do you know what GMOs are? Uh huh, you’ve maybe seen the label on a food package in the health food aisle, it may say something like this... NO GMO or NO GE. Genetically Modified Organisms or Genetically Engineered. You don’t want GMOs in your food or your children's. Why? and what does that mean?
The food has been tampered with and chemically changed, which changes the structure or proteins of that food and when you think you are feeding your family with a healthy meal... you’re not! Because the proteins have changed, your body doesn’t recognize what it is and in turn doesn’t get the nutritional value that is so needed in our daily diets.
Guess what? Food manufacturers don’t need to label their foods that have been genetically modified. That makes me want to throw a cup of boiling liquid onto the heads of those who feel we Mommys don’t need to know what we serve our families!
How dare they! And everyone wonders why our kids have so many allergies... OOOOHHHH, I just want to scream and wake everyone up!!
These are only a couple of examples of greedy, nationwide industries not caring about the welfare of the next generation... our children. The only thing that matters to them, is how fat their pocketbooks get! I’m mad as hell that people are not aware of these on going situations, but this information I have brought to you is not easily accessible and I blame the big companies for not being transparent.
I am not going to refill my cup... I’m too frustrated and my lipstick is muddled and probably filled with lead! I hope you take our little chat seriously, as we Mommys need to stick together and help each other become more aware of our surroundings and who is on our side and who is not.
I’m on your side Darling... I want us to be able to make a positive difference in our families lives and one of the best ways to do that is... awareness... Until next time my FABulous Friend... Ta Ta!
