Weekly Wednesday Wisdom

I was correct two weeks ago when I said there was 0% chance the weekly words of wisdom would actually be weekly...because I missed week 2. So here's week 2 (or 3.)

Wisdom for Miloh: It's easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission...but it's more satisfying to just say you were right in the first place.

I heard the first part just this year, but I think I've always lived with this philosophy...I added the second part because let's face it, it's true.

So Miloh as you go through life and come up against rules that just make no sense please take this advice...it's worked for me.

HOWEVER...if it's ever a rule or such that your mom and I put out you better ask permission. If you don't I can assure you begging forgiveness will be much harder...you forget I'm a bit Hungarian and can be a lot stubborn.

None of this asking your mom if it's ok if you can go out even though you're grounded...we're both going to be on the same page.

Actually you know what? I'm not exactly sure what you did, when you're going to read this and quote it to me, but you shouldn't have done it.

You're grounded for a month...no questions asked. No car privileges (if you're over 16) or no video Wii 13 (or whatever it will be called) if you're under 16.

Comments

  1. Hi there, I found your blog thru the apartment therapy/ohdeedoh post the other day, and since then have pretty much read the whole thing (cause I like it. a lot.) I tried to read as many of the comments as possible, but... well, there were a lot of them. so maybe i just missed what i was looking for, but did you ever say what name you and Staci picked out if Miloh had been a girl?

  2. Molly, glad you found my site...thanks for reading it all.

    I don't think I ever did say the name. But I think we're sticking with one kid and wouldn't do the m-h thing again if for some reason we didn't...so I think I can say.

    It was going to be Micah (which we know is technically a boys name.) But we were stuck on the spelling so it could have been Mycah (I didn't like the descending y...I don't love it in my name) Mikah or Mykah.

    I liked Miloh better anyway so I'm psyched he's a boy.

    thanks

  3. Thanks! I like both names, and yes, Micah would've been just fine for a boy but Miloh does seem to suit him very well.

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…
