Well Ding-a-ding-dang my dang-a-long ling-long.

Its WIC recertification time again folks...fun fun fun. Nothing like being badgered about not vaccinating my kid, nothing like the raised eyebrows and jaw drop when they hear hes STILL breastfeeding. Nothing at all like the insistence I face when they try to poke him with a needle to "check him for iron", and I decline. "But he was low last time he was checked", they say. "Hes breastfed," I say, "He will be lower in iron than the bottle fed babies you are used to. His diet is good, and he is growing normally, physically and mentally. Thank you for the visit now give me my vouchers." I am not looking forward to this.
