Yesterday as my family and I were hiking, my kids started singing songs from Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. I was so proud. And anyone who passed us knew what awesome parents we are. But sometimes our kids are just too young to make sure our awesome parenting skills are known.

Well, now we have help at Geek-A-Bye Baby. Elizabeth Nelson knits and sews the most wonderful items for your baby, so everyone can know you are teaching them the important things in life.

Wonderful hats to keep your baby’s head toasty warm.

Lovely toys so they can learn the geek ways early.

Cool diaper bag, so both mom and dad can take the baby out in style.

You can bring out one of her geek-themed changing pads and make sure everyone knows you are a quality parent, even if you have a dorky diaper bag someone gave you at your baby shower.

Waiting for Spock

When my sister and I were little we would dress up in my mother’s old bridesmaid dresses and play games in the yard. Most of the time we played Star Trek. (The original series; the others weren’t around yet.)

We would be princesses of some planet, and we needed to be rescued. We would walk back and forth, yellow and peach taffeta twirling around us, as we worked out the details and searched for our rescuers. I almost always picked Spock to rescue me. My sister picked Kirk. Yes, she has questionable taste.


It worked out well as we never fought about over who would get which man; at least I never remember fighting.
In fact I don’t remember our fighting over anything when we played Star Trek. We fought a lot as kids and teens, but not then. See, Star Trek is a tool for peace.

To this day when I a feel a warm evening breeze, I am instantly taken back to the days when I sister and I were princesses of an alien world in mortal peril with our Star Fleet heroes coming to our rescue.

Who saved you as a child? Or were you the one doing the rescuing?
