Britain's Got Talent - Connie Talbot (auditions)

This is 6 years old Connie Talbot who took part in Britain's Got Talent. Connie discovered she could sing while cheering up her terminally ill grandmother with a selection of songs from The Wizard of Oz. Her mother bought her a karaoke machine because the family could not afford singing lessons.

Father's Day - June 17

With Father's Day round this weekend, thought I would do a post for Daddies since it is always so difficult to get them a gift. I recently found out about The GoodFather gift CD-ROM for new and expecting dads and thought it was so clever and humourous. The GoodFather is a CD in a custom gift box that teaches new dads hundreds of baby skills through a fun parody of the mobster epic The GodFather. The topics were created for men by experienced dads and grandfathers, and edited by licensed nurses to ensure the material is medically sound. (yes, this is extremely important). Sold for $29.95 at Drmoz

Footprints


I came across this beautiful photography website called Footprints today. Their photographic style is honest, natural and elegant, celebrating life, love and family. Ph0tographer Erin Drallos started professional photography in 1997. She calls her business FOOTPRINTS to remind herself that when she went through the most difficult time in her life, with the lost of her best friend and mother, she now looks back and sees only one set of footprints... "And I knew HE carried me."

Peapod travel bed


When it comes to comfort, most baby travel beds fall short! The peapod travel bed promises to be different — it has a thick, inflatable mattress that cradles baby luxuriously, lifting her up off cold floors and hard ground. There is even an ultra-secure safety enclosure, which blocks wind, sun (with 50%UV protection), and insects. Folds flat. For birth to 1 year.

Quote of the week

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.

Rachel Carson
