Okay, so I signed up to do this party-gig-bash for a bunch of three-year-olds in June, and now I have to deliver on the goods. Because who wants to anger a gaggle of toddlers in the heat of summer? Not me, that's who.
Categorize this video as "pretty darn cute". Tech blogger, Chris Angelini, was readying a Tom's Hardware post about his thoughts about Google Glass when his inquisitive 2-year-old son wanted to know what all the hubbub was all about (alongside a request for some juice). Father equips son with Google's life's moment capturing device, giving us a short glimpse of what it's like to be 2 years old all over again...
When Mila was younger, I decorated her room mainly in hot pink and gray. However, as she grows older, she's crazy for green color. She had been asking to repaint her room green.

Once a week on Apartment Therapy we have an "On The Wall" post, where we pick out a particularly excellent poster, print, artwork that would look great in a kid's room or nursery. These pieces of art make great starting points for a room, too. However, sometimes it can be hard to work out: how do you turn a piece of art into a plan for an actual room? Well, here is how I go about it, starting with a poster I own: Charley Harper's "Space for all Species".
As if tea and booze weren't useful enough as we slogged our way through this looooong winter, several savvy artists- and one parent- have found ways to incorporate the delicious drinks into their art...
If you're going to have garden sheets, you might as well have a garden rug, right? We've rounded up some new takes on the standard floral rug, with some modern, whimsical garden-themed rugs. I'm coveting the veggie garden one, myself.
An amazing thing happened in June 2008 — an IKEA opened two miles from my home. Oh, and my son was born. Before this a trip to IKEA meant descending into the bowels of Port Authority in Manhattan, boarding a standing room only shuttle bus to a New Jersey IKEA and then deciding whether to spend more money than you spent on purchases to arrange home delivery of your items or to limit yourself to what you could wrangle home on the bus and subway.
