–If The Onion‘s fake news and opinion articles crack you up, you definitely need to check out the new Onion News Network. It’s kinda like The Daily Show with John Stewart, but Onion-style.
–Have you seen Disney’s new Family.com beta site? It’s supposed to make our lives easier “by providing instant answers, expert content, and easy access to other parents who know exactly what raising a family is all about.” Seems to have lots of good stuff on it. See what you think.
–Do you believe in the power of one person making a big difference? Contribute a onesie to MomsRising’s campaign supporting paid family leave in Washington State. You can either personalize a onesie or just pay MomsRising to do it. Your onesie will join a chain of thousands in a giant Mother’s Day display–and possibly more in the future.

– Safe virtual world for kids online?
At 4-years old, my son is already playing games on the Internet. His favorite games are on NickJr.com
. A while a back I discovered a Nick website for older kids called Nicktropolis
. It’s a virtual world where kids can create their own rooms, play games, and connect with friends and Nick characters. It claims to be a safe virtual world for kids. Parents can choose to allow their child to communicate via pre-written messages or using Nick Safe Chat with a Nicktropolis Dictionary. I’m curious to know if your kids are on Nicktropolis, and if so what’s your opinion of it?
