The funniest parenting blog I’ve just discovered

Blogger Sara Given is a first-time mom who’s found her place in the online parenting world by poking fun at it. Her blog It’s Like They Know Us gathers parenting stock photos that make parenting look easy, idyllic and euphoric, and adds sarcastic comments to them.

She also has a new book, Parenting is Easy! (You’re Probably Just Doing it Wrong) (available on Amazon – I couldn’t find any local suppliers for now).

Have a look at her site… here’s a taste of what you can expect from my new funniest person on the internet.

“I’m just going to post a quick question about my baby’s eating/sleeping/pooping habits. I am sure it won’t escalate from friendly advice into a battle royale of parenting philosophies fueled by deeply held beliefs, anecdotal advice, and links to articles no one ever clicks on.”

Month eight is the perfect time to scamper out over some slippery ocean rocks for a little mindful meditation.

Breastfeeding is always beautiful and intuitively easy. Plus, everyone gets a fun crown.

At nine months pregnant, who even cares anymore? Do what you want.

Catching a beautiful sunrise is easy when you’re up every 12 minutes to pee.

“And then the baby just comes right out! Exactly like you planned, without anything unexpected, alarming, or super gross happening at all.”

“We’re okay with another pepper, but this time around we’re really hoping for a kumquat. You know, for Carl.”

“Why yes, my child is ALSO reaching each milestone at an appropriate if not advanced pace. I just love comparing notes!”

“Ever since we cleansed our home of visual stimuli, there has been no need for frivolous toys or babysitters. We just turn on the ceiling fan and little Lunesta here is entertained for hours!”

The hipster baby name generator will find the perfect name for your child

If you’re looking for a baby name that’s a hipster, head-turning or alternative, then the Hipster Baby Name Generator can find you a trendy name based on what your baby might like or do when they’re born.

Designer and illustrator Alex Davey created the site, and I still can’t figure out if parents would use this site for fun, or to earnestly find a name by ticking certain boxes of what you think your baby will be like.

My fictitious baby girl will have a taste for farmer’s market edible flowers, and will have two dabs of lavender on her face to help her fall asleep. Her name based on gender, these random facts and my surname? Fannie Peony Butternut Kovarsky…

There’s not much cuter than this today – little girl and her dog pose identically for fun pictures

As if taking pictures of an adorable kid dressed up wasn’t gorgeous enough, one mom dressed up the family dog identically, and the result is doubly amazing.

Canadian mom and photographer Jesse Holland took a pic of her daughter and dog wearing the same hat, and so begun a photo series.
The series was part of a “100 Days Challenge” and even though it’s over, Beth says she’ll continue adding to the collection.PS: It’s worth following Beth on Instagram – her wedding and portrait photography is stunning
