Guest Post: Walking a Fine Line

I’ve found that most of my readers, or at least the ones who comment regularly, tend to be women. As such, I was THRILLED to receive an email from Nick who expressed interest in submitting a couple of guest posts. Even better, Nick is an extremely talented writer (just check out his bio — wow!) whose blog I find thoroughly entertaining and subscribed to almost immediately. Here, Nick writes about his new role in life as a new dad and the ever-changing relationship he experiences with his 4-month-old daughter. (And I would be lying if I were to say that…

Husband Creates Food Art for Pregnant Wife on Bed Rest

I knew that I had to share this story with my readers as I totally teared up while reading it earlier today. (But then again, what doesn’t get me emotional these days? I cried while watching the newest episode of House last night.) As my readers can testify, pregnancy is not all about unicorns farting rainbows.

Danny and Annie

My sister sent me this video along with a note that read, “I know you’re already hormonal, but this is guaranteed to make anyone cry…” And you know what?

So take 6 minutes out of your life and watch. And be prepared to be moved. (You might also want to have tissues handy.) I can only wish that J and I will share this kind of love and…

Who Says Animals Can’t Feel Love?

I have seen my guinea pigs mourn, and even become severely depressed after the death of their cagemates so I have no problem believing that humans can’t be the only species that feel attachment and compassion. The following is a series of photos by a photographer chronicling the sad love story of a couple of barn swallows. It is said that people all over the world have cried after seeing these pictures, and that the French newspaper that originally ran the photos sold out on the day it first published the story. A female swallow became fatally injured after being…

What to Search When You’re Expecting [Google Search Story]

This video seems particularly fitting for our life at the moment. Although I have to admit that I’m the one doing most of the reading and researching…J’s attitude seems to be more along the lines of, “Just tell me what I need to pay for, where I need to be, and how to not hold the baby like a football.” Via The Official Google Blog.…
