Thank you. I will pass that on. OB is a newbie in the blogosphere, and still can't figure out sitemeters.  :))

  I'd like to start by saying that I  don't get into belligerent shouting matches at the playground very  often. The Tot Lot, by its very nature, can be an extremely volatile  place—a veritable powder keg of different and sometimes contradictory  parenting styles—and this fact alone is usually enough to keep everyone,  parents and tots alike, acting as courteous and deferential as  possible. The argument we had earlier today didn't need to happen, and I  want you to know, above all else, that I'm deeply sorry that things got  so wildly, publicly out of hand. 
Now let me explain why your son was wrong. 
When little Aiden  toddled up our daughter Johanna and asked to play with her Elmo ball, he  was, admittedly, very sweet and polite. I think his exact words were,  "Have a ball, peas [sic]?" And I'm sure you were very proud of him for  using his manners.

Not really a blogpost ... but part of the NY Times series of "36 Hours in ______".

This time it is Montreal.
