From the Offsprung family of parent blogs, Meconium is a favorite of mine. Not only is that a very funny name for a blog, (for the uninitiated I will only say "look it up") it tells me about all the silly junk I can feel smug about not spending money on.
It's a cliche that becoming a parent rearranges your priorities, and things that may have seemed important once now, uh, don't. One of those things being high concept design.
Just gimme stuff that works, please.
