Furniture: This is a post with no words.






This post comes with a crappy giveaway. The first person to leave a comment below with a correct guess of what inspired the title will get a $5 gift card to Caribou, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or whatever your fave coffee place is.

Yeah it's a tiny little prize but it's so no one cheats via Google or such and because I'd really just want to buy a drink for the winner but if you don't live in the Twin Cities it might be hard to meet up.

  3. We have monkeys all over my son's room. I'm gonna check that out too. I have a guess at the 'no words' thing, but I'll keep it to myself since I'm in FL. I don't want to ruin the contest.

  4. It is wordless Wednesday but the inspiration from the title comes from somewhere else.

    It may be a bit obscure...maybe too obscure.

    Anyone can win because I'll throw the giftcard in the mail.

  5. I have a couple questions :o) Can you tell me where you got the white shelves from and the cubes? I'm in the process of a baby room myself and I like how you did the cube set as a changing area. Thanks!

  6. no words because your stuck in the waiting game and trying to stretch your baby room post out as much as you can...that's all I can think of! only two more workdays this week, thank God, b/c my brain is starting to shut down. cute room!

  7. Stacey..tomorrow I'm gonna do a bit of a write up on what's in the room but the shelves and cubes are both from Ikea.

  8. Ok I still haven't seen my guess so I'm going to try to comment again because I just
    NEED TO KNOW. I am thinking of the David Crosby song "a song with no words" (or at least I think that's the title and I think it's a Crosby song? Not allowing myself to google it!)

  9. Hey man, it's been a day so I'll take a guess now.
    Does the "no words" have anything to do with Ikea furniture assembly instructions?

    Check out my post named "going green" I"ll tweet it to you. I had a moment of insanity with the changing table.

  10. I like the idea of the furniture assembly, especially since it's a lot of Ikea...but that's not it.

    I also realized that not only is it obscure but it's obscure within it's obscurity...

    So if no one guesses by next Wednesday I'll announce the disappointing answer and if anyone comes close they will get the underwhelming prize...

  11. I'm a music person so I'd say the title is inspired by Songs without Words by Mendelssohn. Other than that I have no clue.

    Love the nursery. Very clean and peaceful looking.

  12. OK so the real answer was there is a song called Furniture by Fugazi, a fave punk band of mine. The first lyric in the song is "This is a song with no words." It's one of my favorite songs.

    Like I said it was super obscure...but parentinginprogress was the first comment that was close so I'll send her the crappy prize.

    Here's a link to a live version of the song http://ia301509.us.archive.org/3/items/fugazi2001-06-24.flacf/fugazi2001-06-24d2t02_64kb.mp3

  13. I should also mention that I liked the other guesses too...thanks all.

Dear Scott the Paleontologist – the response... Wait sorry... the awesome response

In my last post I asked some incredibly pressing questions to Dr. Scott Sampson aka Scott the Paleontologist. Questions that any parent of a Dinosaur Train fan wants to know... I got a reply and I have to say Dr. Scott is hilarious and pretty awesome... But I'm a fan of science humor... So here are his responses in line with mine. They're in blue because that's the color of most of  Shiny Pteranodon. Dear Scott the Paleontologist, My son Miloh and I are fans of Dinosaur Train and as an avid fan I have some questions regarding it that I hope you can answer: The train is a steam engine. Does it run off coal? If it does use coal is there a possibility that greenhouse gases from that could have lead to the extinction of dinosaurs? How come this isn't a theory? Very interesting question. Yes, to the best of my knowledge, the Dinosaur Train runs on fossil fuels, but we actually do have an episode upcoming where we investigate alternative fuel trains. Given that

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info. A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months. I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected
