No Made in China

"We don't like you ball. You're made in China."

After my mom's scare, where she was poisoned from pajamas that were made in China, my son is extremely aware of anything that's not US made.

He's reading everything we buy or anything he's already had contact with in our house. Even the bowl he ate cereal from this morning we found out was ... you guessed it ... made in China.

I think we're going to participate in the "Don't buy from China" campaign starting June 4th. For one whole month, I'm also going to challenge you. Please please don't buy anything from China. From June 4th to July 4th, our Independence Day, buy nothing made from this country.

I'm going to blog my month to let you know how this goes. I'm sure it's going to be hard, as most of our goods are all imported from them. I ask that you go to the link above in my blog and read just how real the treat is with anything that comes into our country from China, and then start your own campaign NOT to buy anything from them.
