Sunday Surf: Hedgehog baby steps

Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!

Welcome to the Sunday Surf, a tour of the best blogposts I've read throughout the week.

Here's hoping you all had a celebratory Thanksgiving weekend! We just stayed home and the boys puked. And I cleaned up puke. And they puked some more. It was … different.

But now it's time for the holiday season, and I am stoked! Christmas music, ahoy!

Sunday Surf: Hedgehog baby steps == Hobo Mama
Once upon a time, I used a Sunday Surf to talk about manifesting a hedgehog. Since Mikko's now enthusiastically on board, we are one step closer. Don't you just adore his drawing of a hedgehog? Totally unprompted. We made a shopping list and went to the pet store to get some supplies.

Some links to be thankful for:

And along the same lines:

  • Jim Gaffigan: Mr. Universe - 4 KIDS (by jimgaffigan)
    "Four kids. If you want to know what it’s like to have a fourth, just imagine you’re drowning … and then someone hands you a baby."
    "We had all our babies at home … just to make you feel uncomfortable."
    "People always assume there was some laziness involved. ‘You didn’t want to go to the hospital?’ ‘It was far. I didn’t feel like putting on pants.’"
    "People are like, ‘You didn’t want to go to that germ-infested building where sick people congregate? … Didn’t your wife want to give birth in a gown someone died in yesterday?’"
    "There was also a midwife there, because we believe in witchcraft."
    Ok, I’ll stop quoting. Enjoy!

Along the tracks:
