A Long Expected Party

A very Happy Birthday to Bilbo and Frodo Baggins on this 22nd of September, 2010! I would mention their respective ages, but I'm afraid I don't know how to convert Shire Reckoning to the Gregorian calendar.

I say we celebrate with a pint of the Gaffer's home brew (or some cider for us expectant folk)! Bottoms up! Also, check out Seven Geeky Ways to Celebrate Frodo and Bilbo’s Birthday With Your Kids. I particularly like #4.


  1. lol - nice!

    Also my mommy's bday. Coincidence? I think NOT!

  2. Oh definitely NOT a coincidence! Tell her Happy Birthday for me!

  3. Thank you, kindly, for your link to my blog! Just out of curiousity, how did you find me? :)

    Love your description of the Chestertonian paradox! I guess I'd fit under it, too. Though I don't make it blatantly obvious on my blog, I am a Bible-believing Christian. And I also do many so called "crunchy" things, too, plus I am a part of the birth community, which many view as "crunchy." (Though being an advocate for informed birth shouldn't be called crunchy! I think it's much to the disadvantage of women that making informed decisions about their births is viewed as crunchy. It should be viewed as NORMAL for ALL women! Ok, stepping off my soapbox now...)

    And happy birthday to Bilbo and Frodo. :)

  4. You know what? I can't honestly remember how I found your blog! I'm sure I stumbled upon it randomly whilst reading about natural childbirth (which I do almost daily) :)

    I totally agree that making informed decisions shouldn't be considered "crunchy"...I just know, unfortunately from personal experience, that anyone who actually takes the time to make informed decisions about their maternity care (as opposed to "going with the flow") is viewed as a radical. It's sad, but true.
