Would you want your child's health records online?

It was six weeks after having my son. My C-section scar was recovering nicely, I had giant breasts from nursing and like all mothers of babies, I was incredibly sleep deprived. There I stood with seven pages of forms to fill out to enroll my son into school, and I had full-on mommy brain. I tried my best to answer their questions:

Weight? No idea. It changes so often, but I think he is heavier than my cat.
Height? Ummmm...tall for a baby
Number of feedings per day: Lots. Sometimes less if he is really hungry. All I know is that my boobs are tired.
Current immunizations: Uhhhhh....all of the ones he is supposed to have. (I think).

It would have been so much easier if I had access to his last set of medical records to look up that information. Think about all the wellness visits that take place within the first year of life. It's hard to keep track of all that baby data. 

So, it makes sense to me that a recent study suggests online access to children's health records ....

Do you have online access to your child's medical records? If not, would you want it? Have you ever struggled to remember your child's medical details? Leave me a note in the comments at Sorry, Mom. I didn't listen.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
