Something Funny, Something New…

by Susan

ProBlogger Group Writing ProjectDarren from ProBlogger is hosting a Group Writing Project on the topic of “Lists”.

Bloggers can submit “lists” about anything for a chance to win some serious prizes. But most importantly, it’s a fun way to find some new reading material.

Here’s my list:

  1. Something funny.

    How To Know If You Are Ready For Children brought to you from The Pink Diary. I just wish that it weren’t so accurate — and that I had written it!

  2. Something new.

    Did you have a Big Wheel when you were a kid? I did and it was the best toy ever. Well, they’ve started making them again and now there is a New Princess Big Wheel that is the coolest gift for any little girl.

  3. Something helpful.

    I have read about a lot of chore charts – and yet I still haven’t gotten around to making one for my son. (Yes I am the one that most needs a chore chart!) So here is a really helpful detailed description of a wonderful chore chart over at The Princess and The Pea.

  4. Something true.

    Over at 3Forward 2Back, I read about a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American or Canadian, any American or Canadian. So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American or Canadian is, so they would know when they found one. Caution: you may end up standing at your computer clapping your hands, flushed with national pride and suppressing the desire to sing your national anthem.

I thought the same thing when I read The Pink Diary post! Too funny. We didn’t get the Princess Big Wheel, but my daughter has the princess bike. I don’t think there’s a spot left without pink on it. Yikes!

Mothers are recommended to avoid sharing utensils & cupls with theirr infants to prevent ttransferring bacteria from mother’s mouth.
You should then let the entire area to dry according to the manufacturer instructions of the epoxy paint.
