You know, a feverish baby and a sick mom will cause the brunch links to become dinner links… Sigh.

The Consumerist tells of a UK woman selling her breastmilk at $22 for 4 oz. I’m apparently in the wrong business.

Classic Toys- Anatex Rollercoaster

Anatex rollercoaster

My grandmother bought this very toy for my cousin, who is now 21 years old.  My son played with it lo these many years ago, and it is sitting on my living room floor at this very moment, in pristine condition, waiting for my daughter to play with it. Because even though she is fascinated, all she wants to do right now is gnaw on it, not necessarily play with it.

And that is what I love about quality toys, often as not made out of wood, or at least mostly made of wood.   They can last twenty years and then some.  They are often expensive, but I think a bit of extra money is worth it, especially if you plan on having more than one child.  Now, let’s see if this can last to perhaps a grandchild of mine?  Totally worth the sixty bucks.

Monday Teeny Poll

Sex and the City 80's outfits

It’s Monday.  I’m sorry, it will be over soon.

Last week I wanted to know how you felt about Santa Clara and their proposed ban on McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys within city boundaries.  A full sixty-four percent of you felt it was ridiculous, and only nineteen percent were glad someone was at least trying to do something, no matter how “symbolic.”   And somehow, almost ten percent of you were on the fence.  As for me, I think it is ridiculous, and yet the same time admire them for trying to stand for what they believe in, even though I think it is misguided.  As I’ve stated before, the factors that go into childhood obesity aren’t going to be fixed by taking away toys.

Today, I’m in a fashion-y sort of mood.  I have no idea why, but this is my blog and you’re just going to have to go with me.
