It seemed like this was a particularly brilliant week for all your blogs. I kept reading things and thinking, "I have to SHOUT THIS FROM THE MOUNTAINTOPS!!"
Black Sheeped's post "Post in which I finally discuss my feelings on baby-making" reminds me so much of my own thoughts before I had children.
Bub and Pie's post "My Family Values" is probably one a lot of people are going to link to. The "my job"/"not my job" format appealed to me, and I felt like the post focused some of my unfocused thoughts about parenting.

Under Construction's post "Blocks, compliments of our cherry tree" blew out entire circuit panels in my differently-craft-abled brain.
And I'll bet I thought your post was totally amazing, too, and the only reason I didn't include it is that it was after 1:00 in the morning and I didn't know what the hell I was still doing up. So go ahead and include a link in the comments section to the awesome post I didn't include because I was asleep.
Gift ideas for an 8-year-old, part 1 of 2 - I have TWO 8-year-olds to buy for, so I’m going to split it up into two posts. Today will be the things we’re getting for Edward. I dislike saying “Gift id...
