Home remedy for Bruises and the reason behind my child care paranoia

These are home health remedies that have been emailed to me or that I found on the Internet.  I have not tried them all and do NOT guarantee the effectiveness of them.  If you try one and it works, or if you have one that works for you, please email me.  Thanks!

  • Slice a raw onion and place over the bruise. Do not apply this to broken skin.
  • Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.


I touched on this subject briefly in my post yesterday.  So let me explain a little more why I am so paranoid about sending Rylie Jo to child care, even though I know it would probably do her a world of good with her social skills to go for just a few hours a week.
Recently in Michigan a man, Douglas Clark, who ran a child care center, was arrested on child abuse charges.  Apparently this sick, pathetic excuse for a human being video taped the abuse.  The charges are growing by the minute as more people come forward and admit to being abused by this person.  I am sickened and disgusted by this story.  Shortly after the story broke, another man in Michigan was arrested on similar charges.  This all is happening as Alyssa Schuster, who lived in Sylvania, and was charged and found guilty with raping her daughter and sending a video of it via the Internet to man in Florida is appealing her conviction. 
My stomach churns and I feel sick to my stomach.  My heart breaks for these children who trusted these low-life adults in their lives.  Can you imagine?  I can feel the tears just waiting to tumble down my face as I think about the betrayal of innocence and all the damage done to these poor children.  These are babies!  Babies for crying out loud!  Not that it would make any difference what age the child was.  But to do impose this type of sick and demented behavior on these babies...Oh my God!  I just can't fathom it.  My mind can't handle just makes me so completely disgusted and sad, so very, very sad.
I kept thinking that I was holding her back by keeping Rylie home with just me instead of sending her off to child care or something a few times a week.  Just something to give her time with children her own age.  I still think that it would do her a world of good to spend more time with other children.  However, there is no way in heck that I am ever, ever going to send her to child care these days.  I get nauseous just thinking about the possibility of sending her somewhere. 
I don't know what I would do if anything ever happened to any of my children.  I think I would just break down and lose it completely.  But if anyone ever did anything to the baby...I mean she is just so innocent and trusting...she wouldn't understand what was think of somebody ever hurting her...I can't even comprehend the thought of it.  I believe and trust in God, but I honestly think I would kill someone if they ever hurt one my children.
So that is why I am so against sending my daughter to child care.  No one could ever protect her and care for her like Mommy.
Sorry to infect your day with stories as disgusting as this.  I hope you have a great day.

Amen sister.  You can NEVER, even trust someone else to care for your child like you would.  Even family... how many times are girls molested by an 'uncle'???  If we have to power to save our children from that horrible nightmare, thank God that we are choosing to do so.  Thank God your child has you, a mommy who REALLY loves and cares for her...
