Re: Poll: Am I a terrible, mean mother?
I am anti-bus unless there's no other option. Not in a judgy sort of way, just a "not for us!" type way. The novelty of the bus would wear off fast. I allowed my son on one for a field trip once, but not as an every day thing. It's more about the other kids on the bus than the car seat safety or other aspects. I don't trust other people's kids around mine. 5th graders around my little 5 year old? Basically unsupervised? No thank you.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.
