What to do?

It's your lucky day!!! I thought I would take a break from blogging about our medical issues.

So, let's talk about the toys that are all being recalled instead. Nevermind it's almost Christmas time. I can't believe that people are being so careless about checking the toys that our children play with. What's with the regulations, codes, and shit these days? Who's in charge of inspecting all of these item??
I am so tired of hearing about toys that are being recalled, and so sad when my children see things on TV that they want. My oldest kids are 4, and are just to the age where they can tell me what they would really like. The kids and I also started to make our "Santa" list.
How do I know if any of it is safe? I don't, right?? How do I explain to them that they can't have the aqua dots because it has a drug like substance to it that might make them die or fall into a coma. They don't get that, because how can a toy be harmful?
I don't know what to do. I guess the only thing to do is not get them any toys or to only shop at certain places. My friend Michelle pointed out that there are so many stay at home mom's that make handmade items. That might be the route to go this Christmas. She found this ADORABLE doll here that Carson too NEEDS TO HAVE! It's safe and it's supporting a SAHM. What more could you ask for.

I also found this on another site and thought it was fun to do -

Isn't it scary? What can we trust when almost everything is coming from China? My nieces and nephews were playing with Aqua Dots and can't get enough of them! They I told my sister about it, and I can just imagine their disappointment... too sad.
