Wii for Families

Nintendo WiiThis review of the Nintendo Wii talks about how well it is for families.  Our kids love playing the on the Wii.  Our son is getting very good with the bowling game in Wii Sports.  (I am going to have to get used that at some point soon he will be able to beat me in video games.)

Job description

The kids and I were playing around the pool today.  Our son said that he had to go to work on the other side of the pool. I asked what he does at work, and he said that he "fixes bugs".

 Makes a dad proud!

Sent back lead toys

I finally got around to sending back the Thomas the Train toys that were involved in the recalls. (The toys had been bagged up in the office closet.) Hopefully they will send the replacements soon.  (Not because the kids have played with trains recently, but because I want to make sure that we keep the sets relatively intact.)

When I mentioned this to some coworkers, they mentioned that they had some Thomas the Trains sets, but they are not sending them back, because their kids have grown out of the toys.  This concerns me, becuase as soon as people forget about the recalls, these toys may be passed down to younger kids.

 If you have some of these toys, please have them replaced.

Circle of teeth

One tooth in..... One tooth out.

This past week our daughter's first tooth broke through, and our son lost his first baby tooth.

School Web Site Safety

This post has some very good tips on securing web sites for schools.  The concern is that these sites could make personal information about students available publicly.

diaper blow out

I wish I had thought of this before with the diaper blowout that our kids have put us through.  Parent Hacks has a post that describes a way to better handle when poop goes up their back.  The tip is to pull the onesie down, instead of up.  This keeps the poo off their head and hair.

Dwink Box Holder


Our daughter tends to squeeze her juice boxes after we hand them to her.  (With the straw already inserted.)  This usually causes juice to be squirted everywhere. 

The Dwink Box Holder is a cup that holds a juice box and should help prevent these types of spills.
