Monday, Monday… or more posts about kid stuff because my daughter is away for a week and I miss the hell out of her

My daughter is off on her own vacation to the west coast to visit her grandparents. Part of the fun of the airplane is getting to watch back to back movies on an ipad. One of them being this haunting, academy award winning, 2006 version of Peter and the Wolf.

It might seem counter-intuitive, but we may actually help our kids more by letting them struggle than by being quick to lend a helping hand.

Sleeveface is a photographic project composed of, in it’s own words, “one or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion.” In my words, it’s genius, pure and simple.

It may be 20 something degrees outside, but spring has already hit Sweet William, one of my favorite spots for kids clothing. I’m looking forward to the near future, when we don’t have to bother with coats that cover up a cute dress like this.

Remember wishing you could live in these like totally amazing kids rooms from TV shows of yore?

And while we’re on the topic of kids’ rooms, check out Apartment Therapy’s Ode to Expedit, the soon to be discontinued box shelving unit that we all have owned at some point in our lives. Fear not. There is a replacement. And it’s name is Kallax. Same inner dimensions (Yay! I can still store my LP’s!) but a thinner frame. Because it turns out, Ikea actually ares about the environment and is trying to use less wood. What an oddly lovely thing to do.

What’s not to love about making these no-bake fruit and nut bars? It’s a family activity that involves cooking, coconut, a food processor and sweet deliciousness at the end. I’ll be making these as soon as little Miss Thing gets back into town. Food52 tells us how to make this dream a reality.
