Monday Teeny Poll

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Not one single person believed Mel B’s claim of having “relations” with her husband five times a day, thus keeping her in tip-top physical condition.  We’re on to you, Mel.  Now, if she had said they argued five times a day about whose turn it was to put the dishes away, nary an eyelash would have been batted.  Because we all know it’s the bickering that keeps a marriage alive, not the sex.

Today I was finally putting away some of my clothes from our recent move (January, that counts as recent, right?) and I happened upon a much beloved sweatshirt, circa Express, 1991.   I still wear it, but make no mistake that I am the same weight I was twenty years ago.  Some miracle has occurred that the sweatshirt keeps expanding right along with me.

Board Shorts for Boys

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010
By Glinda

I recently bought my son some board shorts, and asked him to try them on.

“Mommy, we need to give them something to do.”


“Mommy, they’re bored shorts.  Get it?”

Ah, the pleasures of the seven year old sense of humor.

But really, what is the difference between board shorts and swim trunks, anyway?  Board shorts are designed for surfing, so usually they are made out of sturdier material than regular swim trunks.  Also, swim trunks usually have an inner lining, whereas board shorts won’t.   But, I have seen clothing that claims to be one or the other, yet has design elements of both.  So, buyer beware.  However, the shorts below are all made by reputable surf companies, so board shorts you will get.

Here are some awesome choices for your young wave rider this summer.

I love the idea of these. Especially if the child’s name has more than one letter from the alphabet, because how are they going to spell their name with a regular set? Perfect for a gift or for your own child! All natural and organic, safe for teething, and something I might just get for my daughter.

Things I Love: Jack and Lily Shoes*

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010
By Glinda

Recently I came across Jack and Lily shoes at a retail store, and I have to say, I really like them.   The “Original” designs are a bit like Robeez, but seemingly better made.  The “My Shoes” line for infants and toddlers is also uber-cute.  They are similar in price to Robeez, made in Canada, and as a big bonus, are machine washable.  Here are a few of my favorites…

Jack and Lily Daisy navy

*I was given no compensation for this review. I shelled out my own dough for these shoes.

Paint Your Nails Like Shrek! Because, Uh, Everyone Wants to Look Like Shrek, Right?

Shrek nail polish OPI


I love me some OPI, and I was at a store looking for some polish for my toesies when my eyes fell upon this display of new nail colors from OPI based on the Shrek motion pictures. 

I’m not sure when it became a good idea to make nail colors based on children’s movies, but I will say that the greens in this collection are truly hideous.  I was discussing them with the salesgirl and she said they reminded her of boogers.  Personally, they remind me of a fungus.

Yeah, there might be some ten year old who thinks it’s a good idea, but I’m not sure anyone else will.
