A Collection Part 42

For the first time, we are publishing an “A Collection” post and starting the next one immediately. Hopefully, this means that we can have another one posted within the next six months. These are Veronica’s favorite posts and I even texted her this morning to let her know that she could expect it this evening. These posts are so interesting to me because there is usually little to no content. Instead, it’s a post of 50+ images that I’ve collected over 6 months that evoke something out of me. There’s no rhyme or reason. I can’t go through each photo and say why I chose each one. I just know that it’s important to me, that it means something and resonates with me in some way or another. I’ve never actually talked to Veronica about this, but while this doesn’t hold much content, I almost feel like she probably knows what I’m thinking or how I’m feeling through a collection of images. Maybe you all do! You tell me. :)

Kids Read Mean Tweets

I used to post Jimmy Kimmel’s “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” all of the time and as outsiders we find this to be funny because celebrities get this kind of stuff all of the time, but I thought this parody for an anti-bullying campaign was actually very impactful and showed me another perspective. After watching this, it really didn’t seem that funny anymore.

“We wanted to use the ‘Mean Tweets’ model because in a way, those videos give the message that cyberbullying is ok – even funny. But adult celebrities have the maturity and confidence to overcome these hurtful words. Children don’t. For regular kids, words can cut like a knife.”

Blog Roundup

There’s always a few good reads at the end of the year. Here are some that caught my eye this week, but also a couple that I read almost a month ago that I haven’t forgotten about and still wanted to share with you all:

Budsies

I don’t know why I’m completely enamored with this, but I am. Budsies is a company that transforms your kid’s drawing into a customized stuffed animal! We’re totally past the point of Christmas, but wouldn’t this have been a great gift? I was never a great artist growing up, but everyone I knew definitely had an imaginary friend and they always talked about them during show-and-tell. I like to think back then that if Budsies existed when I was a child that they just would’ve been “making lives” whatever that really means. Here are a few examples of some of their work and it’s pretty darling.

Zara: Brothers and Sisters

Zara has been doing the most adorable thing lately by publishing a photo series called Brothers and Sisters shot by Maria Lang. I can’t get enough of these photographs. I actually had a conversation while pouring over these with my co-workers today and we debated whether or not we wanted our future kids to be dressed like the kids in these photos or if we wanted our kids to be wearing t-shirts with cartoon characters and Disney princesses on them like we all did as children. In one way, I want my future kids to act like kids! And be kids themselves! Then you see these photos and all of that kind of goes out the door! I’m indifferent actually and I’m not anywhere near to making those types of decisions so we’ll decide what happens when that happens :)

And A Good Night

I’m really glad that I never run into the problem of having a shortage of blogging content. I’m still catching up news that I missed from my vacation and the “Apparently” kid is one that I am particularly enjoying.

Ellen is the greatest daytime talkshow host and kids like Noah Ritter are just the best.

A Collection Part 40

As the years go on, the “A Collection” posts get farther and farther apart from each other! When it comes to the end of summer, I always feel like it’s the most appropriate time to wrap things up. I started this post back in April, can you believe it? It’s about time we got this published!

Goodbye summer. Hello fall! We’re so excited to be in you!

The French Laundry Reviewed By the Cutest Four-Year-Old

I don’t have to much context on The French Laundry, but what I do know is that it is a restaurant in San Francisco considered to be a “very big deal.” And by very big deal, I’m sure it means that all of the plates have food on them that will fit in the palm of your hand, the prices are higher than you would ever believe for just a few bites and you have to make a reservations months in advance. Somebody, please clarify this for me if I am wrong.

San Francisco blog The Bold Italic recently had the most darling 4-year old review the restaurant and as you can imagine she had quite a few words to say. The best part of this review though? The photographs of her trying out the dishes for the first time. Apparently this post is well on its way to becoming one of the blog’s most popular posts ever.

To read the entire review and trust. it’s worth the read – click here.

Kids Will Build Sushi

When I was a kid, I just played with Legos, Polly Pockets, Barbies, and was serious collecting Beanie Babies. There was little building in my childhood, but who knows – kids can grow up to be anything these days even sushi chefs! How adorable is this wooden sushi set?! The set was designed by Japanese design firm Plapax and contains 45 wooden pieces. So how much does this cost exactly? Only 7,400 yen. Worth it.

The Most Endearing 4-year Old

I promised you cuteness this morning so here you have it! Kevin shared with me this post about an endearing 4-year old in Japan the other day who is photographed by her father in the most endearing series we’ve ever seen. I’m loving the photos that are being created out of this by father Nagano Toyokazu and his daughter Kanna. I hope my future child is just like this.
