Best of The Blogosphere #3

Nathalie and I both keep journals with our boys’ adorable musings and it’s undeniable that kids really do say some funny things.  But what about some of the funny things that we say?  There have been times when the words are leaving my mouth, I am thinking: I can’t believe that I am saying this!

Design Mom by way of Design Taxi was introduced to Nathan Ripperger’s art work.  Nathan takes things that parents cannot believe that they have said and creates funky wall posters based on the words.  I wonder what he could do with the time that I said this?

His artwork is available for sale on his Etsy website.  Be sure to visit!  What a great gift for Father’s Day!

Good manners will take you far in life.  Take a look at what 1000 Awesome Things had to say a while back.  A few weeks ago a gentleman and I pulled up to a 4-way stop at the same time.  Instead of scowling and booting it through the intersection before I had a chance to wave him through, he smiled at me and waved me through (unheard of in my neighbourhood!).  I waved my hand – no, no, you first- because I am fairly certain that he was there first.  And then he did something that made my day (clearly, it doesn’t take much): he smiled, put his hands together and bowed his head.  It’s amazing how a simple thank you can make someone feel good.

And in case you just need a good cry, get your tissues ready and watch this:
