Quick! Go grab your thinking cap! Can’t find it since you became a parent? Hmm. That’s weird. Try checking under the dozens of baskets of dirty laundry piled around your house. Or, maybe in the trunk of your car under the stinky soccer gear? Thinking cap or no, these Seattle-area bloggers will kick your brain into gear every time they post. Add them to your must-follow list… and also to your to-read-when-I-have-more-than-30-seconds list. Yup, we have one of those lists too.

Teacher Tom

A winner of one of our own Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Awards, Teacher Tom is an absolute fave for families in Seattle, including those who are lucky enough to have him as a preschool teacher at Woodland Park Cooperative Preschool. If you have a preschooler, adding this blog to your daily blog reading list is a must -- the everyday lessons that come across through his experiences in spending day in and day out with the kids are better than any parenting book you can have delivered next-day from Amazon.
