  • From the archives of Yes & Yes come some excellent tips for traveling with toddlers!
  • I love fashion and I love the style sections of such excellent blogs as Nubbytwiglet and iCiNG, but… I just can’t wear clothes that can’t immediately be thrown in the wash! I can’t wear anything that will expose my “plumber’s area” when I bend down because I spend my whole day bending down! I can’t wear shoes that I can’t run (literally) across a muddy yard in! However, You Look Fab comes to the rescue with some really great pieces about outfits for Moms on the Go. (More links: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Dressing for nannies is one step tougher as I can’t wear a tracksuit in the house and then dress up to leave – I either have to wear the tracksuit full time, or be dressed up in the house with the GREAT DANGER of harm befalling my clothes. Still, it is pretty great to see some inspiration on kid-friendly outfits.
  • For my next birthday, I hope someone bakes me an octopus cake.
  • Some thoughts on what IS “art”, anyway? – from the archives of Teach Kids Art.
  • If (Not) For Babies isn’t covering it for you, here’s a great AskMe post about songs for tots.

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.

Links! To things that are awesome!

  • Katamari Baby Costume: ZOMG.Babies. Katamari. Two great tastes that taste great together.
  • Dollhouse mania! Newport dollhouse by the wonderful & talented Lis Bokt. AND! Modern mini dollhouse. Dollhouses are one of the many reasons I’m dying for kids of my own – because it looks odd when “grown ups” have dollhouses and I’ve got an awesome one in my parents’ attic. I’m just waiting for a kid to foist it on. Even if it’s a boy – he can drive his Hot Wheels through it and it’ll still be a kick ass dollhouse.
  • In that vein… Frank Lloyd Wright Lego kit.
  • Nothing to do with kids, or nannying, or art… but if you watch Mad Men, you really must see Jon Hamm’s John Ham. Holy cow, do I ever love this. And Jon Hamm. But not John Ham.
  • Style Rookie: She’s certainly older than the crowd I hang out with, but Tavi is one hell of an awesome kid.  I wish I had been half that awesome at 13.
