I feel compelled to point out that one of my Virgoan quirks is to read the entire archives of every blog that I follow. I am not stalking you, I just… have completist tendencies. I must use every page in a coloring book in consecutive order. I must finish all books I read, even if they suck. I must own each part of a series – if I’m going to buy one, I have to buy them all.
So, the way that this relates to my blogging (and to specifically to Friday’s Awesome Blossom roundup) is that these might not be recent links. And if you’re wondering “How/why are you linking to this thing I wrote two years ago?! Are you mental?!” The answer is… well.. yes. Enjoy anyway.

- Want to introduce your kids to opera? AskMetafilter has some suggestions.
- I Love You Forever, Just Don’t Scale My House: Some thoughts on a children’s classic.
- Developmental Stages of Children’s Art: In case you’re wondering “What’s he going to do next?” No word on putting bellybuttons in all of your drawings though.
- Famous Muppet Doppelgängers. Sesame Street’s 40th Anniversary may technically be over, but muppets are always awesome. Some of these aren’t Sesame Street muppets anyhow – were you aware that Kermit is the only muppet to crossover from the Muppet Show onto the ‘Street?
- Fairytale Fashion: Sarah Von of Yes and Yes imagines what Disney Princesses might wear in 2009. Also excellent – the followup Fairytale Fashion Round 2 and Dr. Seuss Style.
- Deep Space Sparkle is an amazing blog – I wish I’d had Patty as my art teacher! (Though my art teacher was plenty cool and obviously did alright in the end. She was pretty eccentric and I remember rumors went around that she was a witch because she had long black hair.) Most are for kids quite a bit older than my charges, but the Eric Carle inspired projects might be fun to try with Thing 1!
