Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

Friday, June 25th, 2010

You know how you know your life is in trouble?

When you think Friday is Thursday, that’s when.  And then you forget to put up your Friday specialty post until sometime in the afternoon because you only realized it was Friday in the last thirty minutes.

Sad, really.

Who else might be a little sad?  Seal, who lost to Christian Bale with only twenty six percent of the vote.  Although I’m betting that if he asks nicely, Heidi will give him a hug.

So who is today’s challenger?  Well, I’m forced to go to Canada for my international man hunt.  And this next actor may not be conventionally handsome, but to me, a sense of humor goes a mighty long way.  He has forever won my heart as GOB.


Things I Love: The World of Eric Carle Developmental Elephant*

So much to do in one compact, lightweight toy

Based on a character in the Eric Carle book Do You Want to be My Friend? I was dubious about the merits of the elephant at first. But I quickly became a convert.

This is far and away my daughter’s favorite toy, as it has many different sounds, textures, and features.   It’s got crinkles, it’s got hard teethers, it’s got textured teethers, it’s got soft teethers, a mirror, a mouse that squeaks, and a handy dandy clip that is seemingly just as much fun to chew on as everything else.

My son gave him the rather unimaginative name of Eric, as he saw the clip and figured that was his name. But, when all else fails and nothing seems to please my daughter, the magic of Eric prevails.

*This was bought as a gift from my sister.
