Fun sites

If you haven’t been over to the new noggin.com since Jan 1, go!  There are great new videos from Jack’s Big Music Show, Season Two (so they say; we haven’t seen the show, but we love the videos from Laurie Berkner, Nuttin But Strings, and the gang), and a new video player if you use the link http://www.noggin.com/shows/jacks.php.  I like to minimize the window so that just the video player is showing, so my kid doesn’t get distracted by all the extraneous pictures and links.  Plus then I can blog in a separate window.  :-)  We usually watch 4-5 videos after Widget gets up from his nap.  It’s a fun time together on the computer with a definite endtime.  Unlike pbskids.  We love pbskids.org, but there are just so many characters and so many activities that I find it difficult to put a strict endtime on our screen time.  And that makes me crazy.

I’ve found a couple new blogs I really like recently, including Crib Chronicles, who has a great category of “Smitten stuff” that just makes me tear up, and two great blogs about activities to do with toddlers and preschoolers:  In the Trenches of Motherhood and  Unplug Your Kids.  Good stuff!

Oh, and although I try to avoid meta-blogging about how folks find my blog, a couple on yesterday’s list did make me laugh.  See if you can guess which ones….

1. Toddler + fun things to do + DC;

2. Healthy food choices for toddlers;

3. Toddler science;

4. Toy truck, put together, take apart;

5. Snack ideas for playdates;

6. Youngest child in outer space; and

7. Women who love and crave infants and babies.

Yep.  That about sums it up.  Hope you found what you were looking for.

    He is getting so big! That is already quite an inquisitive look that Little Bear has.

    Thanks for recommending my blog to your readers. I am really enjoying reading Toddler Planet. By the way, have you heard of the “Uncheese Cookbook (author: Jo Stepaniak)?” It is mainly a collection of recipes for making fake cheese. I bought a copy once but I found the recipes too scary to contemplate. Get a copy from the library, maybe you will be braver than I!

    Canape — yes, isn’t he HUGE? Seven weeks old and he’s already wearing 6 month clothes and size 3 diapers! I know, lots of kids do … but I’m delighted that he is growing so nicely. He’s a fun little boy, and I can’t WAIT to hear his first little giggles of glee! He’s been flashing those first social smiles this week, and I just melt.

    Mom of 3 — no problem, I enjoy your blog too. But fake cheese? I don’t know if I’m strong enough for that! I’m just hoping Little Bear grows out of this food sensitivity soon!
