Making Fun of Poor Defenseless Housepets: Sport or Viable Career Path?

Give me your best caption for this photo I found on Nate’s computer today–I know you have a good one in mind–and I’ll donate $50 in your name to Daring Young Mom’s admirable volunteer efforts to help the good folks of Washington State. Otherwise Nate’s utter and complete disregard for any dignity that our poor little Emily might have left had will be for naught.


Meanwhile, thank you so much for the wonderful questions for the Toy Industry Association – the ones posted and the ones emailed to me. I’m so glad to see so many thoughtful, concerned parents who have more to say than just “Arggghhhhhh!”

Hopefully answers will be posted within the week.

Oh, and if this is true, it’s awesome. Maybe Nate will get Trump at his table when he goes back to waiting tables next week.
