Have a wonderful weekend.

What are your plans for this weekend? We are grilling outside with friends and just waiting for the baby; my hospital bag is packed! The photo above is of Toby and my dad last weekend. He kept hanging on my dad's legs and begging to ride on his shoulders, so I told him to ask politely. His cute attempt: "Please may I have...some shoulders?" Hope you have a great weekend, and here are some fun posts from around the web...

This new book looks hilarious.

There will be a supermoon this weekend!

The Atlantic article about forgetting new motherhood is SO what I am going through right now. IT IS HARD. No one ever tells you how hard motherhood is - and I swear I have the hardest child too. lol. Have a great weekend!!

Cheers! from,

I would respectfully say that "fascinating" is not the word I would have used to describe Sesame Street's new project. I cannot begin to imagine what these children go through on a daily basis and heartbreaking is the word that more readily springs to mind.

These are great articles! I found myself lost in three of them, thanks for sharing!
This picture could not be any cuter! Toby looks like he is having the time of his life up there:)

The look on Toby's face is priceless! I hope you guys have a nice weekend, and stay cool!

Your little boy and his grandpa, and that expression that he used, are adorable! And, I have to say that the Sesame Street spot really got to me. Children with incarcerated parents are deeply affected by the situation. One really good way to ensure the cycle won't repeat itself is to recognize it and help those children to be whole, or as whole as they can be, despite the situation. I think more advocacy needs to be given to all family members of those who are incarcerated. I think what Sesame Street is doing is beautiful.

Great article on new motherhood from the Atlantic link. I'm due in August and am super excited, but am sort of expecting that it might be "bad" hard for a while. Good thing that initial hardest period is temporary though. Eeks!

Robyn said...

Hope it all goes well!!! Great photo of your dad and Toby!!

Hello Jo -- I just found you through Babble and love your positive, inclusive outlook. I'll be checking back soon to hear about the new addition.

Thank you for the link to the Atlantic article on new motherhood... I'm 35 weeks pregnant today and loved the timely, wise perspective.

Jinsight said...

I so agree with the no-tipping article! It's not so much about the money for me, but the constant uncertainty. As someone from an immigrant family, I never grew up with familiarity on what situations /who to tip. I feel like everywhere I go (auto shop, hotel, restaurant, car service, etc.) I have to ask someone if I'm supposed to tip a person. And even after I tip, I'm always plagued by questions like "did I tip enough? Did I tip too much? Is the guy angry now?"

I'd rather just pay more upfront and not have to deal with this continual uncertainty!

This is so cute! Good luck!

Best wishes as you enter this new round of motherhood. Toby only gets cuter and dearer, and is clearly so well loved--you have to be proud of your doing a great job of parenthood. I follow your blog and stories, don't have kids of my own, but love 'em and love that you share some of your life with us. Am keeping you in my heart during this whole birthing time and hoping you get to feel all the moments of grace, elation and love you can throughout.

I love Toby's comment!

Melissa Blake said...

I grew up loving Sesame Street and it's great to see them doing such great thing. Enjoy the weekend!

Betsy W said...

So, what're some of your hospital bag must-haves? I'm starting to pack up mine now...

That Sesame Street project stopped me in my tracks, wow!! Great moment between Toby and his grandfather, soooo sweet! Wishing you the best of luck with the upcoming delivery - those 2nd baby births are a breeze;)

I work with children who have parents/relatives in prison and although it may sound weird and inappropriate for typical families, Sesame Street is really doing a huge service by having something like this available. These children are now able to feel accepted, and a part of their community/society.
Sometimes it's a good reminder, even for adults, about how fortunate we are, and how diverse our society is.

Your dad looks so young!

Emmy M. said...

Agreed- those are delicious. One of the best ways to 'upgrade' them is to make some homemade ginger syrup. So good!

Toby is A-DOR-A-BLE. I am hoping your second one is JUST as if not more irresistable :) Good luck!!

I have just discovered your blog. What an inspiration - packed full of great tips as well as style advice really like the comic sans link too. Good luck - looking forwards to seeing the next installment :-)

Haha, love the Comic Sans monologue!

Ajay Prasad said...

That is a priceless moment shared by the grand dad and Toby. He is so adorable. Which grand dad can ever refuse the request "Please may I have...some shoulders?" and he is so thrilled when his request was granted. These are treasure moments we must cherish. Have a great weekend with your lovely family.

Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

I have those ASOS trousers, and they are comfortable and fun, but they sag at the knees very quickly sitting down and fade quite a bit in the wash! I still wear them, but more casually because the sagging takes away from how smart they looked to start with. It's a great look, but aim for trousers that aren't made out of a jersey material.

What a special photo.....there is such love and joy in their faces.

This photo is so lovely, joyful, and touching.
I get moved whenever I see photos of grandparents with their grand children because they show so much love.
