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."

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.

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

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…
