Parent Hacks

The mister just sent me the link to a new site called Parent Hacks. (For the unapologetically non-geeky among us, a "hack" is tech slang for a clever, unconventional solution to a problem.)

This site calls itself "a collaborative weblog of practical parenting wisdom," and it does seem to have some good tips. None for my biggest problem, though: how to convince Sam at night that my arm is not his pillow. I'm still waiting for feeling to return to my right arm.

    Oh, yeah, we had the same problem with the kid sleeping only on an adult body part. My hack? It's like a band-aid, you just gotta rip it off.

    Trust me, I wish I had taken my own advice. Even if it isn't much of a 'hack.'

    I love this parent hack website. I'm completely planning on implementing the draw closing velcro and the homemade cork cabinet locks. I absolutely despise the babyproofing stuff for sale with anti-aesthetic zeal. Now i get to at least copy a minimalist functionalist device!

    oops, sorry about that-- what was it about non-geeks among us. This comment was intended for the monster-proofing site below. Now i will go check out the parent hacks site.
