Random Internet Tidbits

Yes of course I'm guilty of this. [See post below].

Today, be grateful. This made me sniffle.

Kids say the darndest things. Or, if you're my kid, you say: "hot, water, and uh-oh" over and over and over. Ouch just got added yesterday. By his vocabulary, you can pretty much tell what happens in our house on a daily basis.

We are looking for toddler appropriate ipad apps. Next time I get on a plane I want him glued to that thing. Any recommendations? [On a side note: do I have any guilt about plugging my child into the device for the duration of the flight? None whatsoever. We could only be so lucky]

I think these house remodels are pretty freakin cool.

One of my favorite blogs is A Cup of Jo. Last week she featured interviews with seven working mothers and how they juggle their careers, marriages, and children. Last summer she did a series on mothers that work from home.

Speaking of working mothers, have you been following the recent articles about working women by former Obama administrator Anne-Marie Slaughter and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg? Here is a quick recap. Here is Sandberg's TED video and Slaughter's article in the Atlantic (long but worth it). [Why is a stay-at-home mom posting stuff about working moms? Good question. Lots of reasons but a) it never hurts to keep up to date and b) you never know when you might decide to head back to work.]

And on that note, I'm off to go vacuum up the remaining wasps that are inhabiting my garden shed. Wish me luck (and no stings!).
