A half-assed Gear Thursday: The Spilt Milk bowl


I call it half-assed because I'm not sure if a bowl really fits into the category of gear, but this bowl is cool. And yeah it's probably way to early to be thinking about this for a kid but I may but a couple just to have a set now because technically I think adults can use it.

When I was making a living as a photographer I had the displeasure of having to do a shoot with a bowl of cereal in it. There was no glue used instead of milk, but there were however some milk splashes made of porcelain. I'm not sure exactly what each splash cost but I'm guessing about $75-100. Whatever it is the prop stylist was not happy when he dropped one and it shattered.

The Spilt Milk bowl by Fred & Friends gives you the look of the milk splash without the fear of a broken bowl. Made silicone you can drop it, bend it or whatever and you won't ruin the bowl.


Fred & Friends also has come other great stuff for kids like the Food Face plate and some things that are great but not so kid friendly like the Evidence knife which is a kitchen knife with blood stains on the blade and an evidence tag.

Check out their site for other goodies like the M-Cups, measuring cups that look like matryoshka dolls. Warning it's not the best site as far as user-experience.

I feel good about not using the obvious cliche. Your welcome.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me.

So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist.

In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teacher…

Gear Thursday: finally my post on the floor bed

Okay...I promised a post on our floor bed and the whole deal with floor beds in general. Honestly right now as I start this post I don't know a ton about them. Staci does because friends of her's have used them and she read the book Montessori from the Start...plus it follows tenets of the Montessori philosophy which she teaches. I've absorbed some of the info from her and such but we'll learn together as I wade through some websites.

That all being the case think of this as a Cliffs Notes version of floor beds...and I have learned from experience that teaches are correct that you can't pass the test by reading the Cliffs Notes alone.

It's easy to explain what it is...just a crib mattress on the floor. You can add a floor bed frame, which is a 3 sided wood frame, but people we've talked to see them as a waste and a place for shins to bang into. You also need to set up the room so it's a completely safe place...every thing at reach is age appropriate...…
