Eats, Shoots and Leaves
15 June 2009, 9:59 am

I reserved a book at the library that I wanted to re-read but accidentally selected the children’s version.   “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” is a funny book about punctuation.

The book title has a joke that goes with it that points out the danger of misinterpretation due to bad punctuation…

A panda walks into a restaurant, sits down and orders a sandwich. [...]

15 June 2009, 10:03 am

The Summer Reading Programs of the Monroe County Library System begin this week. This summer’s theme is “Be Creative “.

My rant:  CHEWING
17 June 2009, 10:01 pm

No, I’m not referring to the kids chewing with their mouths open.  Nope.  This is for the dude at ballfield…

If you happen to be a guy chewing tobacco at t-ball games, bring a cup/ bottle/ jug/ jar/ whatever, something, ANYTHING to spit in. 

Do not stand there for an hour spitting tobacco goo on the ground where me and my [...]

things to do: freeware for kids
17 June 2009, 10:33 pm

Two of my kids fave computer activities is a stick figure animation program called “Pivot Stickfigure Animator” and “Tux Paint“, an interactive paint program.  One of my daughters also likes google’s “Sketch Up“. 

Both of these programs are “freeware”.  Freeware is software available for use at no cost. 

I hope to try some more freeware programs, google brings up [...]

Bumbo- Recommended Baby Item
21 June 2009, 9:58 pm

 

This is my four-month old  in his Bumbo seat. 

 

Bumbo seats are relatively new (about 5 years, I’d guess) and are now available at major retail stores.  It’s a step between the inclined positioning of a  bouncy seat and the more independent sitting in a boppy.

from www.bumbobabyseat.com :

The Bumbo Baby Seat is a snug and cozy environment for [...]

Cereal Box Flip Flops and Houses
1 July 2009, 7:01 pm

Since nobody in our house likes the same kind of cereal, we end up with a lot of empty cereal boxes.

Hmmm. well, I’m no math whiz but I guess the same amount of cereal would be eaten, so maybe we’d end up with the same amount of empty boxes, but they’d just all be the same [...]

Baby Slings/Wraps Presentation 7-9-09 (Monroe)
5 July 2009, 8:50 pm

This Thursday’s Lunch Bunch presentation is on slings/wraps.  If you have a baby, you should go.

I’m a fan of wraps, moreso my baby is a BIG fan of being carried around.  Without a wrap, I would get even less done than I do now.

I have a pretty black/grey/white no-sew wrap (like a Mo...

TONIGHT (7/9/09) Kids Concert @ St Mary’s Park, 7pm
9 July 2009, 1:06 pm

Tonight’s show is Guy Louis-Chautauqua Express.  Great show, interactive. I’d say ages 1-12 are the perfect age, but I find it entertaining and I’m *WAY* over twelve.

The City of Monroe Concert in the Park series features free music and entertainment at 7 p.m. Thursdays during the...

Well, here it is.  It’s already after the Fourth of July (what I consider the halfway point of summer vacation).  Last year somehow I had put together a (what seems to be now) a very fancy 2008 summer fun list.

Big Foot Sighting
18 July 2009, 5:55 pm

Its a sad state of affairs when you realize your daughter (age nine) wears the same size 5 1/2 shoe as your best friend (age not disclosed – - what kind of a friend does that?!).

Its even worse when you tell your friend this, and when comparing feet the friend says to your daughter, “I ...
