My alien abduction theory...

I'll start by saying I believe in aliens. From what I've read about the new Stephen Hawking show I probably have a similar view. I wish I had seen the show but I have this little kid who's been stealing my time.

I don't think they are coming here and abducting us...because I agree that if they did it probably wouldn't be good.

But I do have a theory about abduction and it came to me the other day while changing Miloh.

You always here that they are abducted by human like figures at night. The abductee is placed on a table. They are often under lights and then they are prodded.

Well that's exactly the experience Miloh had the other night. His room was dark, a human like figure picked him up, placed him on a table, turned a bright light on, stuck a metal probe in his butt and then placed him back in his bed.

The human like figure was of course me. He had been fussy and puked earlier in the day so before I did his night feeding I tool his temperature. I turned the room light on because I wanted to make sure the thermometer was going where it needed to.

Maybe the alien abductions are just some kind of early memory...a memory that is skewed a bit because it was so early.

I'm not sure of my earliest memory. I have 3 that are early but I don't know the timing. One was a cake that was for my father's birthday...it had cool little plastic boats on it. Another was my sister's b-day...my mom made individual frosted cakes for all of my sisters friends...they got to decorate the cakes themselves. I remember my was crazy sloppy and had everything on it...that's probably because I am 5 years younger. My last early memory is my birthday...my mom rented a film of Mighty Mouse comics for my friends to watch...let me repeat that, she rented a film like actual film we projected...I'm old.

You'll notice one thing that all my memories have in common...they are birthdays, but more importantly there was cake involved...I like cake. You'll also notice I don't remember my mom's b-days...that's probably because she was the one planning things wile my father did nothing for hers (I'm guessing.)

Back to the alien thing...it's just a theory but these are the things I think of.

  2. That totally makes sense....Interesting theory

    My husband laughs at me when I take our dog outside at night because I always run back inside because I think the aliens are going to get me on our country road in the middle of nowhere. Now I can take comfort in the fact it is just my temperature takings that i have nightmares about. Whew I feel better.

  3. I recently had to do this with my SEVEN year old after his first surgery bc of a crazy fever with the Emergency Room attendant on the phone. He's old enough to know we weren't aliens...which I think makes the scar that much deeper. lol

  4. You may have inspired me to post about early memories...just not aliens.

    I don't want to anger them. ;)

  5. Can't you take a kid's temp nowadays by sticking the thermometer in the kid's armpit?

    It would make for a much more lame abduction story though: "A figure picked me up, brought me to the table, stuck something cold in my tickle zone, then put me back to bed."

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

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

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
