This really shouldn't be as complicated as it is. We can't seem to come up with a seating arrangement in the mini-van. Esme keeps getting her seat moved back and forth while we try to figure out what works best.

We have a third row for three and two captain's chair. Clara is in a captain's chair because she is still in a baby bucket and I am not trying to carry that to the back. Esme goes back and forth from the captain's seat, to the back row. She kicks Rich's seat while he drives which makes Rich crazy but when we move her to the back the kids argue over who gets the other Captain's seat. And then if it is just Esme, Clara and I running errands she doesn't like to be all the way back there alone.

Yeah, seriously. I know I over complicate things a bit

Do your kids always sit in the same position in the car?

I hate the "can I sit in the front" fight. Or the second capt seat for that matter! No, we don't have assigned seats. I would put any carseats in the captains seats and let the rest fight over the back 3. My 4 yo likes to sit in the middle in the back because he can buckle it himself. But he also likes to get in first, so he is in the way of the other 2! It is always fun!

we have a fifteen pass as well...and only four kiddos so far...so ours is easy...you would THINK lol...

First row Olive in the middle.

Second row two boosters outside edges

Third row one in the middle.

Back row is out so we have hauling room. lol

they fight over who sits where...we finally said NO you sit where you sit EVERY time...now they argue who gets in first...or who helps buckle in the small fry (can't quite buckle herself in)....UGH....it's never ending.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
