Stuff I found on the Interwebs

Well, my kids have been unusually well behaved lately so I don’t have any built up angst that I need to work out on my blog. So I figured I would share a few things I’ve found to keep you amused or occupied while I brace myself for the next round of kids behaving badly.

The Ugly Volvo – All of my Issues with the “Goodnight Moon” bedroom
I’m happy to say I haven’t had to read “Goodnight Moon” much of late. It’s been gathering dust due to my daughter’s preference for other such tales as “The Christmas Donkey” which is a very long read for bedtime, “We Share Everything” which is also a very long read for bedtime, and any number of the Pinkalicious books which are a much more manageable length.

Was my body trying to tell me something? It also tried to strangle my son before he was born. Should I be worried?!
