children: July 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgA Facebook page called "I'm lost. Help me find my family" has been set up in a bid to reunite a tatty teddybear with his owner.

Cafe owner Liz Everett started the page after the lost bear was accidentally left in her Suffolk tearoom.

She said the threadbare bear was so adorable she knew he'd be missed and felt a Facebook page would be the best way of tracking down his owner.

And after posting pictures of 'Meare-Kat' on the beach and enjoying an ice-cream more than 1,000 people have joined the search and are asking their friends to help.

It's now hoped someone who know the forgetful family will see the campaign and Meare-Kat can be reunited with them… if he's not having too much fun at the seaside.

275x250.jpgNot content with their little darling only having one birthday each year, many parents have started celebrating 'half birthdays' too.

The half birthday celebration - which includes the usual parties and gift giving - is said to be the latest odd parenting trend.

Celebrated 182.5 days (half a year) after the real anniversary of a child's birth, the parties have become a hit with middle-class families.

And firms cashing in on the trend have even started producing special 'Happy Half Birthday' cakes and cards.

Let us know in the comment section if you're tempted to start celebrating half birthdays -- and if Queen Elizabeth II is reading this (and we know she does) your second birthday doesn't count.

275x250.jpgA woman who was told by doctors it was impossible for her to get pregnant says she's now due to give birth -- thanks to fertility statues.

Rachel Taylor and her husband Jon, from New Jersey, had been trying to have a baby for over three years when she first read about fertility statues on the internet.

Impressed by what she saw, Rachel decided to make a visit to Wisconsin where a pair of five-foot tall wooden statues from West Africa were on show at a Ripley’s Odditorium.

Because it was claimed the statues had helped over 1,000 women get pregnant Rachel said she didn't feel conspicuous about rubbing them.

And she says she was right not to -- because she is now due to have a baby boy in August… hopefully he won't look like the statues.
