Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Happy Mother's Day!
For Mother's Day - your very own instant infant! Okay, maybe she'd rather have flowers or chocolates, a jewel, a wind-up toy or a gift certificate from Joie de Vivre . . . but we wanted to write about our Instant Infant today, because . . . we have one prominently displayed sitting on top of our Mother's Day display, and yesterday a man saw it, did a double take, and started laughing. "I had no idea that was still around!" he told us. "I know that baby!" And he told us that - the baby who posed for the picture is graduating from college this year. So . .. that's how long we've been selling that item. Wow.
