The Week In Links: 8/10 edition

What's this? Could this be a post unrelated to moving?
Well, what do ya know, it IS.

Once a week, I'm going to try to do a round up of links I found interesting. Take a look and see if you share my interests. Click them all. Glance at them and walk away. Click the ones that sound interesting. It's up to you.

Work sheets, coloring pages, videos, songs, and more
So many kids are going back to school. This is a great resource for those with kids in school, those who homeschool and those who are teachers.

Next in the list of linky goodness is a lolcat. This will be the initiating cat--boldly going where no cat has gone before, this blog. I can annoy assure you, though, that these won't be the last. This, right here, would be me:

Neat idea for using spray paint to give items a whole new look
True, that doll is creepy, but I find her oddly less so when spray painted blue. I think I'll have to use this idea to decorate the kids' room in the new place.

I want that for every one of my kids.

While we're on the topic of funny kid t-shirts, let's add this to the wishlist:
They don't make this big enough for the big 2, but I want one for all the kids.
We have a Chanukah bear which we always jokingly called, "Jew Bear" and I like to insist, "He's Pooh Bear's cousin. You know they're related because they have the same last name."

A touching story of a grandson's love and dedication to his grandfather (and frustration with the despicable things going on with his lack of care)
I was far more interested in the story than the actual mechanics behind how he was able to gain so many fans.

Exactly what the title says

Breastfeeding supporters literally put on a song and dance about breastfeeding.
This is fantastic. I love seeing the families taking part in this who don't look a bit self conscious.

Ani homa. Ta'ali.
A friend posted this article from Aish and I love the message. I often need to be reminded that sometimes, silent support is all that's needed.

This is, quite possibly, one of the best "View In A Rooms" ever.
It is naughty, so you've been warned.

A friend got this song stuck in my head. Now I've repeated the favor. You're welcome.

Some people won't like this, but it is what it is.
I just don't understand why most of the article frames the argument in terms of a personal health decision when earlier, it makes it very clear that it affects others as well as the person smoking.

In the second grade, I spent three months suffering from severe bronchitis. I was on more medications and had more blood tests than I could count. I was miserable. My doctor's notes about the illness say, "Parents are heavy smokers."

I've always liked his cartoons and this one is, once again, too true, but it makes me so sad.

And, on a related note, Jon Stewart had a fantastic rant on the topic wherein, he declares, "I give up."

I must try this.

This little guy is just too cute and too relevant:

Make It : A Wee Wonderfuls World
Contains the pattern for a very cute mermaid.
I'm dying to try out the pattern to see if I can make one. Maybe this is something even my biggest girls could try out.

I found this thanks to Blacktating on Facebook. This is a WIC poster which presents breastfeeding as the norm, not the exception.

"But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave."
This relates quite a bit to our reasons for homeschooling.
It can be tricky to find Jewish-themed crafts, so I'm particularly thrilled with this site.

I wouldn't classify this as "Crazy neighbor" at all. In fact, this is what I've been saying for years.

This article broke my heart.

It just made me laugh.

This picture from Awkward Family Pet Photos is far more awesome than awkward.

And thus concludes this week's round up of linky goodness. I hope you found something to peruse.
