A few things I enjoyed from around the web last week, along with other newsy bits.
I wrote at MicroPreemie.net: 6 Things My Preemie Taught Me About Life
(Thing 4b: it’s ok to cry. Yesterday my preemie saw a butterfly and said, “Butterfly. Beautiful!“, and I burst into tears. We’ve come a long way.)
Filed under “tiny house love”, this bus converted into an adorable living space. When I see pictures like this, my heart does this little flip-flop of longing. That’s a sign isn’t it? I want to live in one of these someday.
Have your kids gotten bit by the homemade slime bug? My 11-year-old makes it by the gallon, it seems. Here’s a recipe similar to hers.
I contributed to this book, which was just released in paperback: The Shoestring Girl: How I Live On Practically Nothing And You Can Too. The chapter I wrote is about frugality with kids.
Being a big fan of Annie Brewer’s books, I was honored to have been able to co-author. Read a couple of quick reviews here: my favorite books on radical frugality.
