You know what the last week of September means to me? That we're inching ever closer to Halloweeeeeeeen! So you can imagine how tickled I was when I found this gallery of face painting inspiration. My four-year-old isn't a fan of paint all over his face, but I don't mind it… so I might totally try some of these on myself.
This is Offbeat Families's archive of costumes posts.
If ever a child could take over the world by swing, it would be this child and this swing. I mean, there's a certain degree of triumph in the way she holds the rope, am I right?! This week's batch of reader photos continues to overwhelm and impress — I especially love this next shot of two dudes and their ninja dad.
I have one thing to say about the photo above: BRRRRRRAINS. In all seriousness, I don't think I've seen that kind of maniacal post-meal glee in a while. Quite a few of you had photos of babies eating (ice cream, brains…) in the Flickr pool, so this week's reader photo round-up is semi-themed: cute kids being cute, and cute kids eating… while being cute.
Oh yeeeeah it's reader photo time! The Flickr pool is a pretty magical online spot right now — there are tons of perfect little gems in there! I especially loved the above photo of two dudes very seriously meditating. There are all kinds of goodies in this week's round-up, so lemme invite you guys inside.
Full disclosure: I spent an inordinate amount of time looking at baby clothes on Etsy, especially for someone who doesn't have an infant and probably will never have one again. I really can't help myself, because shops like The Wishing Elephant exist and produce robot baby costumes that look remarkably similar to R2D2 and all of a sudden I find myself measuring my chihuahua/pomeranian mix puppy and wondering if I could order him an extra, extra small.
Let's talk about DINOSAURS! It's been nearly a year since the beloved but extinct relation of birds was mentioned on Families, so it's probably time. If your house is anything like mine and there's a toddler or preschooler running around, the odds are likely fairly high that you're already spending your fair share of time mulling over this creatures with your kids ANYWAY. Here are a few awesome dino-themed products I found that will interest the young and not-as-young alike.
