Today we are loving:
Land's End Skinny Jeans. Who knew Land's End could be so hip? Thanks to Petit Elefant for the tip. I ordered these with a pair of shoes, and they are so flattering and comfortable that I had to order a pair in another color. They have just the right support where a mama needs it, while still looking fashion-forward.
Salon's Post on Bad Fathering. They called out google because they did a search for “bad fathering” and got a “Did you mean: bad mothering?” Really, Google? REALLY?
Hooked on Phonics. We've all seen the commercials, and lately my son has shown so much interest in reading. I found a full set on Amazon for a third of the retail price, and a couple days later my son is really learning to read. It works for us!
Giggle.com. This website is like a clearinghouse for cool kid stuff. I loved their Ultimate Swaddle Blanket for my daughter, who is still a fan of the swaddle at five months and counting. It's big enough to keep her swaddled, and made of a fabric so cozy you'll wish they came in your size.
Man Cold. This hilarious youtube video hits a little too close to home . . .
Word World Happy Holidays DVD. I'm a big fan of Word World for helping kids learn the basics of reading, and they have a new holiday version that is both fun and educational. Although the characters ls are always learning how to spell words, they also learn some great life lessons, like giving is better than getting. Just don't try to say Word World three times fast.
Lifefactory Multisensory Silicone Teethers. These teethers for babies are so simple and yet so brilliant. They are BPA, phthalate, PVC, and latex free, and can be refrigerated or frozen to soothe aching gums. The various ribs and nubs are fun for baby to explore and help to develop oral motor skills, and they come in colors so fun that you might be tempted to sport one as a bracelet.
Leonidas Orangettes. Candied orange peel dipped in Dark Belgian chocolate. Do I need to say more?
