WINNER! Crappy Book Giveaway

WINNER! Crappy Book Giveaway

Congratulations to MARIA from California! As a result of a totally unbiased and entirely scientific process, Maria has won the book, Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures!! It is a complete and random coincidence that this woman happens to be my mother-in-law, the very mother of Cute Banker. I SWEAR this was legit. So legit that I didn’t even change the outcome out of fear people might think it wasn’t legit. Too legit to quit, you might say. Well, you might not say that. But I did because I remember Hammer Time. Sorry. I’m old. So, congratulations, Maria! You have won this hilarious book. But you never go on the internet, so you won’t even know. So, I will deliver it to you personally. That’s how much I love my readers, and you, in particular. Thank you for making Cute Banker, and thank you for subscribing to my blog. I am your biggest fan and you legitimately deserve to win! Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click...

The more you do, the more chances you get. A winner will be picked in the same official manner as the last giveaway and announced this weekend. (No, I cannot pin it down more than that.

Crappy Pictures

Crappy Pictures

Amber Dusick is hilarious. She comes close to capturing the true experience of parenting young children. And she makes you laugh, which is crucial to surviving the true experience of parenting young children. If you’re having a bad day at your job, whether as a stay-at-home parent, or any other career, you can probably relate to today’s post, called Parenting – I Quit. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll copy the link and post it on your blog. I also love this one. As the mother of two small boys, something about it rings true… (Warning: if you are offended by the accurate names for boy parts, do not click). I’m grateful to Amber for keeping it real and for keeping us laughing. Enjoy! UPDATE: Look below, Amber commented on my post! I feel like I won an Oscar. Luckily, I’ve got my baby to keep it real.

This morning, my son announced he was writing a book.  He hired me to transcribe it. Fortunately, I can also publish it, sort of (although, I imagine actual book publishers will be knocking on our door momentarily). He chose “Tree Laughy” to be his nom de plume and set to work. I left the background decorating choices in this shot so you know you are not alone.  Or, maybe so I can feel I’m not alone.  Does anyone else have the Small Child Chaos motif? What with a couple pairs of new shoes, and the jury on the malevolence of socks still out, Blisters have been a big topic around here lately.  Art imitates life even in the preschooler set because his book is called Lulu Got a Blister. This is an actual, word-for-word transcription of my guest blogger’s story. (I believe it may be a sequel to an actual, printed book.  Please let me know if we are in violation of any trademark laws. Clearly, Lulu gets around –...

Instant Italian

Instant Italian

Dip is fun.  It even makes eating raw vegetables seem like less of an imposition. This is a versatile dip worthy of a kids’ lunch or an Italian cocktail party. Here’s all you need: 1 can cannellini beans 1 clove chopped garlic (or less if your kids’ tongues aren’t flame retardant like mine) 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 t sea salt 1/8 t pepper 1/4 c fresh basil (would also be benissimo with rosemary instead) 1/8 t crushed red pepper flakes (for the cocktail party, not the kids) juice from half a lemon Drain and rinse one can of cannellini beans. Plop the beans into a food processor. Add all the rest of the ingredients. Process until mostly smooth. Adjust seasonings. Spoon into bowl, top with basil chiffonade, a few crushed red peppers, and a swirl of olive oil. Serve with buttered, toasted pita bread. I use a comal to toast mine up but any pan, or even a toaster oven, will work fine. It’s a kid pleasing...
