Random Thoughts: mostly not baby related

Typo warning...this was sent from my phone.

One:
Last Friday on Twitter I gave it an 87% chance that we were having the baby that day.

There are a few scientific reasons for that; I missed the bus and had to take our car so Staci was kind of stranded, I had a migraine trying to shut me down and a bunch of people thought it was the day. 

We're still waiting.

Two: 
The reason I had a headache was because I have been clenching my jaw at night (I may be stressed about having the kid.) The clenching leads to jaw pain which leads to a headache that has triggered migraines.

I used to do it a lot to the extent that I'd have small chips of teethe randomly break off. All the chips were repaired and I haven't been clenching in about three years.

But the other day one of those tiny chip replacement/fillers broke off. It's hardly noticeable...not like The Hangover.

Three:
Even though it's a tiny chip I want to get it replaced. To do this the dentist matches the filler to your tooth color.

I drink a lot of coffee and black tea which has stained my teeth so I wanted to whiten.

Long story short...don't fall asleep for 4 hours with the whitening trays on (if you're using the 30 minute kinds)...your teeth will hurt like a bitch but will be visibly whiter.

Four:
As I said in number one there is no baby yet...we still have 9 days left before the due date. We're both hoping the baby comes soon...Staci because it's just not fun right now...me because I think it's just a bit too cliche for it to be late. 

No offense to all the first time kids that were late...

Five:
There was some sort of football game here in the Twin Cities this weekend. I say it like this because until Thursday night I had no idea Minnesota had a good team this year. 

Now they're one (I think one) game away from the Super Bowl and that reminds me of a super early conversation with Staci's doctor. He said that quite a few people will schedule induction or c-sections a few days before the Super Bowl so they don't miss it. 

I asked if our baby was late and born on Super Bowl Sunday if we could get a discounted price since it's an unpopular day. Apparently that's not how pricing is decided in the medical community. 

Six:
And last as I said earlier, and most moms know, this is probably the least fun time during pregnancy. So a big shout out to Staci for being so awesome.

  1. I agree that this was definitely my least favorite part of pregnancy (and I had horrific morning sickness- so that's saying a lot).

    What made me crazy during the wait was when my family would call and say things like "You STILL haven't had that baby??"

    That's the verbal equivalent of pulling out one single strand of hair from someone's head.

  2. um, so since this isn't baby related, which whitening strips did you use? because all my coffee is catching up to me and it's not ok.

  3. I used Target's brand (Up&Up) I used the best ones, I think. They come in a white plastic case, are for 7 days and are called whitening wraps or something like that. I think they are like the high end Crest ones. They worked pretty well...still have 2 days to go.

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

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

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 teac
