Blog Roundup

Up for some reading? I’m out sick today. My boy and I were the last holdouts in the family for what locals call the Humboldt Crud.

Here are a few things found browsing my blogroll. I’ll be updating it this week. If you have a blog, drop a comment and I’ll check it out.

Charlie bit my finger [via Neatorama]

  1. Parents are such liars [A Family Runs Through It]
  2. The world’s first vegan Backyardigan cake [Kind of Crunchy Mama]
  3. Cute photo: Up to no good [Lumps of Clay]
  4. Cute photo: Is it just me… []
  5. Cute Photo: Falling for My Kids [DadTalk]
  6. Baby Levi was born last Thursday [Little Sir Isaac] Uh oh, time to change the blog name.
  7. Baby Mwah was also born earlier this month [Mamanista]
  8. The fifth anniversary of a failed Apgar [Mother in Chief] This is a reminder that parents of challenged kids exhibit boundless inner strength, but secretly on the inside it’s not always so peachy. Her son Riley is living with a congenital heart defect.
  9. Can I get an Amen? [Mr. Big Dubya] With a new job and a third child on the way, Big Dubya almost bought the farm, but instead merely totaled his sport utility vehicle.
  10. The nursery is done [Abigail's blog] Distant relatives helped decorate the room by snail mail.
  11. A bittersweet night [Chief Family Officer] The abandonment of a highchair in favor of a Kaboost chair raiser at the dinner table had an impact I’d never guess. I have no experience with highchairs.
  12. The My Pee Pee Bottle was her husband’s idea [DaddyTypes] Go potty in a bottle? The how-to-use page is downright classy.
  13. Burp Armor for baby barf [BabyGadget] I’m completely okay with just using a hand towel.
  14. Camp Baby questions answered: well, sort of. [Baby Toolkit] Johnson & Johnson set up a feel-good event for 50+ mommy bloggers to talk up product safety. Hmm, the need for such an event says all I need to know about the company’s products.
  15. Advice needed: helping a toddler deal with a death in the family [ParentHacks] Okay, the family member in this case is actually a McDonald’s restaurant, but whatever.

    Thanks for the fun post, AJ. “Charlie bit my finger” completely cracked me up. Sorry you’ve got the “crud.” Little “J” and I have it too. Blah. Hopefully, health and wellness are just around the corner with the sunshine and warm weather.

  6. Chief Family Officer says:

    Thanks for the link love, AJ! It’s been nice not having to clean the high chair paraphernalia, but I do wonder if we moved Alex into the Kaboost too quickly – he keeps sitting turned to the side, plus now he has the freedom to get out of his chair!

    Hey! Been reading your blog for a couple of months since my baby boy was born-he is 5 months now, over the colic and taking naps! Yay! Time for me to go online and post on my own blog. Check it out-though warning: I am not very nice. I, ahem, use bad words.
