I didn’t have my act together on Friday to put together a post of cool stuff I’ve found on the internet at large lately, but I’m going to make for it today.
First, one of the writers over at Blogging Baby has started doing kid-friendly CD reviews. The second review, Here Come the ABCs by TMBG, was posted today. The first review was of a disc called Mommy Says No by the Asylum Street Spankers. Never heard of them, but they sound kind of funky.
There have been many more little kids at YMCA/YWCA lately, which means that it’s become more difficult to ascertain which empty snack container and drinking box is Madeline’s when I go to pick her up after my 10 am date with the treadmill. It’s often like going on a treasure hunt, One of the other parents there recommended that I try out Mabel’s Labels, and Madeline’s arrived in the mail today. Love them. Even if these sticky labels weren’t dishwasher-friendly, I’d still love them for the cute little graphics. I asked Madeline if she preferred the little fish, the little butterfly, or the little bird, and even she had trouble deciding (obviously, the fishy won out). I wouldn’t say that they’re expensive, but they weren’t cheap. I think I’ll reserve my final judgement of their "value for the money" factor once I see just how long they last.
I am almost as excited about Mother Proof as I am about those labels showing up in the mail. It was featured on Cool Mom Picks the other day, and it’s a website that reviews vehicles to determine their worthiness for the monniker "family car". The current car-of-my-dreams is in there 🙂
