Brown bear, brown bear...umm tasty cardboard

CNN.com - The joy of reading - Aug 28, 2006

There's a good article this week at CNN.com about reading to your kids. Everyone always says that reading to babies is important, but not everyone always tells you how to do it. This article has a rundown of what to look for in a good baby/infant book and what to expect the reading process to be like.
We've been reading to the squirt since the get-go and at 8 months, he does love "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see?" But I think his favourite thing about it is the taste.

Here we go again....

OK, OK... now I know that both of my readers...yes, you Mom, are going to be confused by the roundabout migrating from blogger to wordpress and now back to blogger. Well, a few things have happened. One is that blogger has been seriously updated - and it rocks. I can also start having ads again and maybe earn a few bucks from doing this. The other thing is that I have been working at becoming a real Philosopher Dad (and hopefully will be soon) and it made me think long and hard about what I wanted this blog to be. Instead of just posting every single science/parenting item that I come across, I hope that I will really be able to take the time to discuss the issues that affect me and my family (or the ones that piss me off at least). Posting may be slow for a while, but hopefully it will get rolling soon.

Thanks for understanding..
