Monday Links

Hi everyone.  It is a beautiful day here in Chicago.  Kids are napping and I am sitting outside typing this.  Nap time for EJ is starting to go away so I need to treasure this time now.

Made pizza with the kids Friday night.  I put some pictures below.  They don't do justice to the mess we created, it was great.  Saturday, I went to MCA Day Chicago.  It was a charity celebrating Adam Yauch (aka MCA) of the Beastie Boys who lost his battle with cancer last year.  The reason I went was to support a very good friend and his family's foundation that funds research towards head & neck cancer.  Oh and She's Crafty an all female Beastie Boys cover band was headlining it.  One of the other acts performing was a bluegrass band that covered a couple Beastie Boys songs that were surprisingly good.  The highlight might have been the end of the night ending here.

Some parenting ideas I may or may not use.

I heard about parents in Brooklyn that don't use diapers a couple weeks ago and I don't think I could ever do this.

I love The Onion. I just hope I can be as successful as the guy in the story

A SAHD reality tv show?  I'm sure it will shine a great light on stay at home dads and dads in general.  I guess there are two other shows in the works on other channels.

Way to go Yahoo!  Hopefully this will start of a trend and many other companies will follow suit.

How was your weekend?

The help loved putting the ingredients on (and eating them)
A little pizza dance party.  Is EJ doing the running man?


  1. Judging by the shape of the pizza, it looks like everyone had fun!

    P.S. way to bring back the running man EJ. It is my go to when trying to embarass JJ!

  2. Thanks for linking to my Yahoo! article. I really like your blog. See you in the facebook group!
