Organic debate, toddler eating apple at www.beachsidebaby.com

The great organic debate is over!

Well, at least the organic debate is over in my house. You see, my husband and I have not always seen eye-to-eye on… well, on a lot of things! And one of the ongoing debates between us was whether it was really worth it to buy organic. Skeptic vs. Hippy I’ve occasionally been described as
