Weekly News Roundup: Waxing Nostalgic About Old Toys and Regretting Newborn Purchases

File this one under:  Things that make you feel nostalgic (and old).  Toys you used to love that look “totally boring” now.  [San Fran Chronicle]

Naps play an important role in infant learning.  Which, based on the past few days, means my baby won’t be learning a heck of a lot.  [BusinessWeek]

Which newborn item do you regret purchasing in hindsight?  Mine:  A glider that does not recline (especially when I recently had a sick baby who refused to sleep anywhere but on my chest for four days.  Oy.)  [lilSugar]

Study looks at ‘tipping point’ for weight gain in toddlers.  Awwww.  But I love chubby babies!  [LA Times]

Children were a hot accessory at New York Fashion Week, but not everyone approved.  Gee, you mean Anna Wintour didn’t ENJOY having the back of her seat kicked by a kid?  (Hee, hee.)  [WSJ]

After Andrew Koenig‘s body was found in an apparent suicide, his parents urge families:  “Don’t ignore depression.”  So sad.  R.I.P. Boner.   [MTV]

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
