Ooowee, I'm kinda glad that the challenge is over. I've read and know a few moms who stopped the challenge early. And I kinda wish I was one of them. I saw that some of the babies got ill, but it was Mami who got sick! It was a horrible night for me, not to mention is was stormy last night so I couldn't hang the diapers out this morning cus it was still muggy and bugs flying everywhere. But that's a good thing cus this mama is resting. Annaleah is taking a nap right now and she's gone through 4 flats today so far. My muscles ache and she gave me a hard time changing her, so I haven't been using the snappi cus I don't wanna scratch her by accident.
I had so much planned today... it's March 25th! Do you know what that means?? #MAM!
There was no local march near us. The closest one was in Corpus Christi, but hubby didn't wanna drive :( But I've kinda been stocking their Facebook Page, checking out the videos and there was even a live stream video from San Francisco (they were planting seeds in a public park!) that was pretty cool. I tried to organize one last minute, but I got too busy, plus washing those flats, lol.
If you don't know what the March Against Monsanto (#MAM) is, I suggest you educate yourself. Monsanto is a company that is trying to control our food! They have been buying off seed companies and they are just one of the companies that produce GMO foods like, corn, soy beans, sugar beets and a few more. As you may have heard we want to know what foods have GMO foods in them. Since 88% of all soy is genetically modified that is like all but a small percentage of all packed and processed foods. More than 15 countries ban GMO's or must be labeled. GMO's although "safe," according to the FDA, have been linked to INFERTILITY, ASTHMA, DIABETES and many more Gastrointestinal diseases. There are tons of Documentaries you can watch. If you have Netflix there are tons of them on there. I just watched one during lunch that is actually FREE on Youtube.
If you were persuaded to use cloth as a way to put on "real diapers" on your baby, then you should think about eating a non-GMO foods or "real food." And yes, we don't eat 100% non-GMO, but we are headed that direction!
