Thanks @gman17 for this life-size cutout of Keys. It’s his new best friend and favorite toy. He was slow dancing with it earlier. I can’t decide if its more adorable or odd, but he’s happy so it doesn’t matter.
This year, as you may have noticed, I scaled back on Mother’s Day posts for a couple of reasons. One reason is that I never got anything even close to as crazy as this. Another reason is that I spend so much time talking trash about sanctimommies and mommyjackers and documoms (who are…
The 3rd one. Omg
Go to the link and read this story. It is so adorable. Made me tear up. :)
Yesterday, a girl who was about eight or nine came in with her aunt to look at building kits. (I work in a store that sells nothing but a very popular kind of brick based building toy, but I bet you can figure out which one without me saying it.)
We’re supposed to…
OMG. This is so wrong. The look on that kitty’s face… I feel bad for giggling. Lol. That cat looks kind of traumatized.
This is so cute! :D
“My five year old son likes to wear dresses,” says German dad Nils Pickert. Back when he lived in West Berlin, it was certainly a conversation-starter, but not much more than that. Now, however, Pickert and his son live in a “very traditional” South German village where his son’s predilection for dresses is the talk of the town. “I didn’t want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts,” Pickert tells the German feminist magazine EMMA. “He didn’t make friends in doing that in Berlin already and after a lot of contemplation I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself.” At first, Pickert’s son was reluctant to wear a dress in public, fearing he would be laughed at, particularly by other kids at his preschool. But that all changed one “skirt and dress day” when he and his dad made a resident of the town stare so hard she slammed into street light face first. “My son was roaring with laughter,” says Pickert. “And the next day he fished out a dress from the depth of his wardrobe. At first only for the weekend. Later also for nursery-school.” As you might imagine, this story has a happy ending: And what’s the little guy doing by now? He’s painting his fingernails. He thinks it looks pretty on my nails, too. He’s simply smiling, when other boys ( and it’s nearly always boys) want to make fun of him and says: “You only don’t dare to wear skirts and dresses because your dads don’t dare to either.” That’s how broad his own shoulders have become by now. And all thanks to daddy in a skirt. (via Father of the Year Helps Dress-Wearing Son Feel Comfortable By Putting on a Skirt Himself)
Excuse me, I’m just gonna go… ball up in a corner and sob for a few hours…
Mom’s Gold Star
While the name Colton makes me think of malt liquor, guns, and horses (the Holy Trinity, depending on where you live and what year it is), I find Brandon’s joke here to be quite funny. Something about the colorfully complex plastic structure combined with the gleaming rays of sunshine has me convinced that this is, in fact, the new entrance to Narnia. And more than that, I’m imagining Colton having the time of his life in a magical land with talking animals, which is far more appealing than picturing him sitting in a dirty diaper slobbering on himself in that bacteria-infested baby maze. (Anyone remember #3 in this post?)
Nice work, Brandon. Congrats on winning this week’s Gold Star, and good luck on finding your son in that jungle gym of drool. I’m sure he’ll crawl by at some point.
