Zut alors! We are going dark.

Hello dear friends. I have sad some news….we are going dark for a few days. Yup. It’s true. Modern Kiddo will be offline for a little bit. But don’t fret! It won’t be for long (we hope…). The sad news is that we have been H@CKED. Some super annoying A-HOLE (pardon my french, but I’m just a weeeeee bit annoyed) has broken into our sweet little clubhouse and has messed the place up. Not sure why they think our beloved readers would be interested in Vi@gra spam, but there you go. In addition to being insanely annoying and futzing with our code, they have made it impossible for people to get Modern Kiddo on their RSS feeds/readers and all our links are going to crappy pill sites. Quel désastre…


We will be starting from scratch rebuilding the site (FUN!) but when we return we will be all spruced up and rarin’ to go with a bang! The site might look a little wonky in the mean time as we fiddle and tweak, so please bear with us!

Until then, a special message to those nasty hackers from our sweet friend on the far right….MWUAH, ya bastards!

We can’t wait to see you all again on the sunny side!!!

PS: Beloved sponsors! Miss Dottie will be reaching out to you….we will be extending your ad run due to this icky inconvenience!! xoxo
