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.

Wait, But Why – Why Generation Y Yuppies are Unhappy

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

    I’ve read the Goodnight Moon post, and some of the comments are hysterical! People got really upset that she dared make a funny post about the book, taking her completely seriously.

  2. These humorless people are probably making their children completely miserable. I wonder what their kids’ bedrooms look like…. ginormous probably, and horrifically decorated most likely. Sigh…
