—I wasn’t too hot on Crocs until this spring. But our sitter highly recommended them for Cassie, who plays outside ALL the time and will be going to the neighborhood pool a lot this summer. I picked up a pair at the mall, and man, they are perfect! Light, easy to put on/take off/clean, and they breathe (i.e., don’t stink). She loves ’em. So I was psyched to see this new crop of Crocs for kids featured on MomFinds. Cute and practical! We’ll definitely be stocking up on some of these Crocs for summer.
—From SNL‘s “Colon Blow” to Dave Chappelle’s “Samuel L. Jackson Beer,” review the 50 greatest TV commercial parodies of all time, courtesy of Nerve.com. My personal all-time favorite: “Bad Idea Jeans” (#18). Also topping my list: “Oops, I Crapped My Pants” (#33), “I Wanna Be a Ho” (#22), and of course, “Mom Jeans” (#10). What’s on yours?
—Check in with The Daily Mom. iVillage constantly surprises me with its quantity and quality of updated content. Since when have they offered this daily-updated blog written by four moms about parenting tips and styles? Since June 2007, according to the archives. OK, well, I just found you, so you’re new to me!
—Attention, Obama Mamas (and Daddys). Fellow marketing mom and blogger Ilina created this video to support Barack Obama in the North Carolina primary. Hear regular moms, dads, and kids at a neighborhood park, talking about why they love Obama.
LATE-BREAKING ADDITION: My husband made a funny little video this morning for his job (reviewing notebook computers) to demonstrate how bad reflective screens can be. It’s silly but fun (at least, to me. I am his wife, though).
–Mark your calendars for free iced coffee. Visit Dunkin’ Donuts next Thursday for Free Iced Coffee Day. It’s going on from 10am to 10pm, so hopefully you can find a time that’s not too insane.
—Light up Mother’s Day. Are your running out of places to display your kid’s artwork? Check this out: The Design Your Own Lamp from The Spotted Goose (located in Cincinnati) lets you slip a drawing in the lamp shade clips to make a one-of-a-kind desk lamp. What a great Mother’s Day gift!
—Mother’s Day is coming, and sometimes I feel like more of a mom to my husband than my daughter. Which is why I got a good laugh of out this little gem that my mother-in-law sent around yesterday. It totally reminds me of my hubby and his brothers. Take a look and see if it reminds you of anybody you know!
