Week 31 in numbers

August 20-26


  1. i totally read every single one of these and wish i thought of it as well as had more infographics in my day to day. nerd.

  2. hello! just found this, love your blog. i will be following. want to do a link exchange? ill put you in my blogs i dig and vice versa? let me know, thanks! -sarah, rock n' stroll

  3. I read. Miloh is like a week older than Bronwyn, so it's actually interesting to me. Not that I have anything to compare since I don't track anything.

  4. so I am proven wrong...thanks.

    I figured people look at them, but it's the same info over and over so the sub-head kind of things (stuff after number of bottles or diapers) is tough to come up with new stuff every week...and I had creative block this week.


  5. reading these give me hope for the 2 infographics classes i took.

    and failed.


  6. I read them.
    I heart them.

    They make me jealous that I don't do cool things like keep stats on my kids.
    Mom fail.

  7. @maddie I think an infographics teacher would scoff at my weeklies because they are probably not technically infographics. I think these number ones have a different name.

  8. Your weekly infographics are great. Miloh will love to see these when he is older.

    By the way, do you know David McCandless? I think you'd love his latest book, Information is Beautiful. You should check it out.

  9. I do know David McCandless. I'd love to be at that level sometime but aside from Miloh I have no graphics to do...I should just do random ones.

    He has a Ted video but I haven't watched it yet

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

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
