We’ll be away from our desks the month of August, carrying on with the non-bloggy aspects of our lives, watching mindless movie blockbusters, and indulging in summery drinks made with generous pours of bourbon. During this month, we’ll be linking each day to a different website that we ♥. Hopefully you’ll discover something delightful and new while we’re gone. If not, you are a serious Captain Crankypants and are probably in dire need of a summery drink made with a generous pour of bourbon.
‘Til September, lovelies.
I’ll admit that I am personally a bit of baby whore, someone who walks up to any strange little ‘un with wide open arms to offer a bounce or a burp, loves getting puked on, files “squishing baby thighs” under “favorite pastimes,” and is truly validated not by career achievement but by the squealy giggle of a toddler who can’t distinguish me from a play-and-learn musical puppy. I love babies. I probably love your baby. Give me your baby. I want to squish its thighs.
But still, I think it takes a lot for a parenting blog to be good reading for those without child. I don’t spend a ton of time on mommy and daddy sites (although I did follow a mama trail to this post about family bikes once, and almost dropped a few grand on a family tricycle just for myself), so I’m surprised that I keep finding myself browsing the stories of Busy Dad Blog and giggling at the life of Huggies-sponsored daddy Jim. Jim (Busy Dad) is one of the three people I know of in Los Angeles that rides Metro besides myself, seems like a real dude’s dude, and is constantly being outwitted by his older cutie of two, Fury (real name Marcus). I am most eternally grateful for baby Lessi (real name Alessia; Busy Dad has acknowledged that she got shortchanged on family nicknames), who has inspired a whole new cache of oogy-woogy photos to fill the empty space in my stomach that arrives every time I realize Fury is smarter than me. And she’s got those baby thighs. Just the cutest, most squishable baby thighs.
