It’s Movember! Bring Back the Moustache

It’s November, aka Movember. The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow mustaches during Movember to spark conversation and raise money for men’s health programs. My husband is participating in Movember, and while I don’t mind a nice winter beard, this mustache thing is making me nervous!

Support me through this November mustache episode by donating to my husband’s team. He is also welcoming new team members so if your or your loved ones want to participate, please sign up and join the Scratchy Face Boys, then watch those mustaches grow– thanks!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mothers Day 2014

We managed to take our annual Mother’s Day photo this year without too much fussing or fighting so I’m calling the day a success!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you modern moms, moms-to-be and mothering types.  Give yourselves a pat on the back.  I hope you’re getting all the appreciation you deserve– today and every day!

with love,Esther

The Most Expensive Crib

I’m merely posting this for your entertainment… at $16,320,000, the Dodo Bassinet Solid Gold from Suommo has got to be the most expensive bassinet of all time.  I imagine it being the bed of choice for the offspring of ancient Pharaohs.


Fortunately, the bedding is included.  How about throwing in the child’s college education while we’re at it?

For the older baby, the Bela Luxury Cot Gold Edition is merely $62,288 but I’m afraid the bedding is an additional $5,168.  For some reason they throw in a free bottle of water.Suommo-Bela-Gold-0631

You could also choose the La Perla Crib Gold Edition for $81,600 or the Limited Edition La Perla Crib in Gold Rosé ($353,600), also with a free bottle of water.

I’m not even going to mention the pacifier– oh wait, I just did.

Have I sufficiently knocked your socks off?
