Happy Birthday Dan! Chicken Bomb

Elliot is one of the most thoughtful 6-year old gift givers. He really thinks about the other person and he's often right on. Tools for Michael. Tea for Mom. A necklace for Britta. A monkey for Asher. A rubber chicken for Dad. For his dad's birthday he decided that a "chicken bomb" (and a dragon t-shirt) were what Dad needed.

According to Elliot, a chicken bomb is a "sweet gummy candy, it's actually healthy with nutrients and full of vitamins and minerals, with lots of calcium, and chicken hands and chicken feet on the ball." Where can you get a chicken bomb? Not at the usual toy stores, but they have them at Fred Meyer.

I did a search for chicken bomb and there is a book called The Milk Chicken Bomb by Andew Wedderburn about a troubled ten year old boy in Alberta Canada.

Of course Dan deserves a chicken bomb for his birthday -- and so much more. Happy Birthday, Dan!

I just came by an article you might find interesting. It was in the latest issue of Greater Good magazine, which explores "The 21st Century Family". The article was about how it's not the changes themselves but how families respond to them that will determine how well they fare in the 21st century. Other articles in this issue focus on the challenges of being a dual-income couple, the questions faced by gay and lesbians parents and stay-at-home dads, and divorce.

Here is a link to one of the articles:

I hope you enjoy the articles as much as I have. The rest of the articles can be found at:
