Img_0277FREELANCE DAD RETURNS TO DISNEY'S FAMILY.COM—AND YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO

Freelance Dad (aka Gary Drevitch) gets another turn at bat as the featured columnist for Disney's family.com Comment Mania contest, starting today.

As before, we write the column, they post it, and visitors (like you) comment. The comment deemed worthiest wins a fabulous cash-equivalent prize from the House of Mouse. And they love columns that get lots and lots of comments over there. So hop on over and support your blogger. (And tell a friend!)

The subject this time: How Little Guy has successfully avoided getting formally sleep-trained. (Spoiler alert: He throws up!) If you have a chance, come on over and share your sleep-training experiences.

WON'T YOU BEFRIEND US?

Speaking of FD showing up a few years late to the Web-based party . . . in response to popular demand (no, really, there was popular demand—like, three, four guys) Freelance Dad also opened up a Facebook page this week.

We strongly encourage all visitors to FD.com to stop by and befriend us here.

THE FD.COM VIRTUAL REFRIGERATOR (OF HORROR)

Since this seems to be the day for debuting new features here at FD.com, welcome to the first installment of our Virtual Refrigerator, where, from time to time, we'll share the works of Small Fellow, Tiny Girl and Little Guy. (Why is our refrigerator "virtual"? Because we can't actually post any of the kids' work on our actual refrigerator—Little Guy will tear it right off. . .)

First up: Tiny Girl's recent depiction of life in the wild.

Seems her kindergarten class is studying bears this month, and she learned that mama bears have to be very careful to stay close to their newborn cubs, because if they should get separated, the little bears could be beset by packs of wolves, attacked, and killed. Is this really true? We honestly have no idea, but it sure made an impression on her, as can be seen in her powerful illustration below:

When she brought it home, we asked her what her picture showed, and she told us it was a bear cub that got lost from its mommy. (To her credit, on the reverse of the paper, she drew mama bear looking for her cub.)

- So, Tiny, what's happening to the cub in this picture? we asked.
- It's getting attacked by wolves, she told us.
- Really?
- Yeah. See that orange on the bear's head?
- Um, yeah. . .
- That's the wolves setting the bear on fire.
- . . . oh.
