Remember this picture of Porter from last year?
It was so cute.

But after reading about Christmas lights being full of lead, 
I feel like a failure for putting Porter in this danger. 
I read this article and now realize how unsafe these lights actually are.
The PVC insulation that insulates the wiring is full of lead, and extremely high levels of it.
So even though these types of photos are ALL OVER Pinterest,
please do your research first, as I should have done.

  2. I wanted to do this next year when my babies are a year old but I saw all of the warning posts and I was sooo let down. I guess I'll have to find an alternative to the cuteness... no idea what that will be but I'll let you know if I figure it out ;)

  4. I had no idea! Thanks for spreading the word. Sometimes it feels overwhelming how full of toxins everything is. I've kind of given up, but if it's something I can easily avoid (like Christmas lights), I will.
