It's another baby boy...blog!

Yes, it's true! I'm having another boy...but this time, it's a blog and not a human baby:


F&S screen shot


 


Let's all say it together...phew!


My new blog is called The Frog and Snail Society -- that's the fancy version of the name, but you can just call it the Frog & Snail since we're friends. There's no need to be so formal, you know?


It's a lifestyle blog for moms and dads and uncles and aunts and everyone who has a boy in their life. I started it because I got tired of people feeling sorry for me when they hear I have all boys. Boys are delightful! They do have cute stuff! No, I'm not sad that they're all boys! And mothers of boys should stick together (hence the "Society" part of the name.)


The blog is a little bit of design and shopping, a little bit of advice, tips and tricks, some stories and interviews -- and eventually I hope it grows into a community where parents (and friends) of boys can help each other out. 


But first I'm planting the seed and taking it one day at a time.


The idea for the blog just came to me the other day. I knew exactly what it was going to look like and what it would be about, so I rather mysteriously asked Twitter if I should go ahead, and Twitter said yes. 


So I did.

I hope you guys will take a look around. Would you do that for me? And when you do, will you tell me what you think? If you like it, would you be a dear and tell your friends about it? 


You can keep up with the Frog & Snail in many ways. You can bookmark it, or subscribe by RSS or email, or you can follow on Twitter or you can "Like" us on Facebook


Or you can do them all. It's not necessary, but it would be awfully nice of you.


Thanks so much for taking a look!

On a housekeeping note for this blog, I'm moving to Wordpress in the next few days, so if things look funky please be patient. And if you read on a feed reader, and you don't hear from me in a week or so, would you mind checking in in person just to make sure the feed didn't break while everything was moved? (You can always follow me on Twitter if you don't want to lose touch. I'm always there. Ask anyone.)


So many changes. I'm a bit nervous, but very very excited.

LOVE this idea! I'm the aunt to several fantastic nephews and they are such happy makers. Can't wait to follow and explore the new blog! Congrats!!

I am so excited for you!

I have a feeling this will be a good resource for parents of little girls, too, who are sick and tired of pink/dolly/princess stuff being shoveled on their daughters at every turn.

Thanks, Amber. And you make an excellent point. You're absolutely right!

Thanks so much, Heather! I love that your nephews are happy makers...I may steal that phrase from you :)

Hooray! I have a sweet little nephew and am adding this to my reader as I feel like he gets the short end of the stick from his pink-crazy auntie.

Awesome idea, Miquelina! Looking forward to checking it out.

And lots of luck with your move over to Wordpress! Congrats to you!

[...]  [caption id="attachment_126" align="alignleft" width="258" caption="baby gender quiz"][/caption] Bab...">Baby Gender Quiz – What Does It Contain? Getting pregnant is an exciting feeling especially if it is the first time. There are a lot of questions that parents want to be answered and some beliefs that they want to prove. When having a baby, the first thing that parents want to know is the gender. While the baby is not yet due for sonogram, parents especially mothers find other means of knowing the baby’s gender and one example is taking a baby gender quiz. The truth behind the baby gender quiz still remains to be a mystery. There are some instances where the result is being predicted, and others are not. Despite of this, many still take it out of curiosity. The baby gender quiz base its result with the following factors: 1.         Shape of the mother’s tummy – When taking the quiz, one of the questions is how the mother’s belly looks like. Normally, the options will be the shape of a basketball or watermelon. It is believed that the basketball pertains to a boy and watermelon to a girl. 2.         Food cravings – One of the questions to ask is whether the mother craved for sweet foods or foods that are salty or spicy. The explanation for this is that, sweet foods refer to a princess, and the salty or spicy is for a baby boy. 3.         Heartbeat – According to the baby gender quiz, a girl on the way has a heartbeat of at least 140 beats per minute and a baby boy has lower than 240 beats per minute. Taking a baby gender quiz is not bad at all, however, it is still recommended having a sonogram in order to know the real gender of the baby.
