I have some shout-outs to give today.

* This post was inspired by my recent experience using Care.com. I had a very good experience using this website. So, if you are in the market for a babysitter, elder-care provider, or dog walker - I recommend giving this site a chance. Definitely worth the money.

* Here's a shout-out to a boy who won't let a little thing like height hamper his ability to shoot some hoops.

If you can't reach - climb.

* Here's to raiding the sack of left-over Easter candy in the pantry. No one has to know.

* Then there's the fact that I might, possibly, potentially - be done being sick.  No, really. This time I mean it.

* Here's to finding alternate uses for household items.

Bowl as headwear.

* Gotta give props to children who find their own way in life. Would you like a teething toy for those erupting eye-teeth, wee one?  No.

This plastic straw suits me just fine.

*  I'd also like to extend a shout-out of gratitude to whoever is a natural predator of the may fly. Die, mayflies, die.

* And finally here's one for the men and women of our armed forces, and their friends and families. I know there is no victory without sacrifice. Thank you.


  1. One of my children would only teeth on dill pickles! They are a lot of fun [when they're not sick]aren't they?!

  2. So glad you're feeling better! Maeve's best teether is a silicone spatula.

  3. I noticed those little May fly buggers when we were outside yesterday. Before we moved to NH, I wondered why everyone had screened-in porches. Now I know why.

    I have been snacking on our post-Easter stash as well :)

  4. Glad that you're feeling better--my Mister Man is a fan of straws and bowls as headgear as well. :D
