Opening scene to Miloh's episode of Cribs

This is is pretty much how every morning goes when we walk into Miloh's room. I had to cut it short short because a stray roach was walking around.

Update: to answer Lauren's question. This is the Cliff Notes version of how this started happening.

First thing is the floor bed should actually be called a bed floor. He often crawls out of his bed to sleep. Less now but he did a lot in the beginning.

And at first he'd crawl towards the door wanting to get out and he'd fall asleep right at the door. There were a couple clunks until we started opening the door super slowly.

Sometimes it took us awhile to open it. He could be right at the door and we had to nudge him out...slide a hand through and move him.

Then as he got older he tried to open the door...but sadly he often shut it. He'd open it ever once in awhile but it was a fluke.

But now that he's super old he gets how to open it. Most mornings he wakes around 6:20 and plays in his room for 15-30 minutes. We hear him clunking toys and talking.

Then when he wants us to get him he goes to the door and either kicks it or hits it. We hear the knocking head to his room and open the door a bit.

Then I think he backs up for us to open it...or on a lot of days for him to get the door.


  1. hahah nice, stray roach. what a cutie! you have inspired us to do a floor bed for our 1 year old once he has his own room, what a great idea.

  2. Holy cow, Miloh is the CUTEST BABY EVER! Also, you don't sound how I'd expected at all!

  3. Dang roaches, being all stray and stuff! LMAO!

  4. Roaches? Dude, that's nothing. ;) Check out the dead rat post on Becoming Sarah. So did you always realize Miloh may be right by the door or was there that morning that you opened it and...clunk. $#%@! LOL. By the way he is super cute.

  5. Lauren I added a bit to the post to answer your question. thanks

  6. I expected to see two roaches. Very cute. Miloh, not so much the roaches.

  7. For anyone who has questions on floor bed, please let me know. Kenny does a great job of explaining it and I am always there to help with set up for new parents.

    I have to admit waking up to the sound of Miloh playing on his own, giggling and babbling is amazing. Then when he hears that we are up, he goes to the door and knocks. It is wonderful. And when the door opens, the smile is like no other. It makes for the best way to wake up. Even as we get used to early mornings with our darling.

    PS we would never have roaches. I will make damn sure of it.

  8. He's so nonchalant about chillin in the entryway. Love the idea of a floor bed... it'd probably help my kid to quit losing limbs in crib bars. But we have lots of roaches around our house so we'd better not.

    Following you on twitter now. I'm a new tweeter.

  9. He is so stinkin' cute. He and Nellie take the same pacis, except Nellie's are pink. Naturally.

  10. Thank goodness the roach didn't fall on his head. Whew!

    I'm really thankful that I bumped into your blog when I did. We have a 6-month old who finally out grew her Moses basket. (I think you guys call it a layette?) We've moved her onto a floor bed in our room (she isn't sleeping through the night yet). Once she's more or less making it the full night we'll move her into her brother's room (they'll be sharing). I love the idea of the floor bed and so far things are going great. An added bonus is that our house is tiny (as they all are over here) and so the idea of having a bed AND a crib in the 2nd bedroom meant there would be no floor space. So the unexpected benefit of having a floor bed in there means that it will be an area both kids can play on, instead of a big box taking up space.

    Thanks for being brave and taking all the sh!t from people.

  11. I love me some Miloh. This is hilarious.

  12. Lauren I added a bit to the post to answer your question. thanks

  13. Holy cow, Miloh is the CUTEST BABY EVER! Also, you don't sound how I'd expected at all!

The Cat in the Hat Knows Pretty Much Nothing About That

I find myself saying it a lot but we don't let Miloh watch a lot of TV... Mostly because it goes a bit against Montessori at home (although we're pretty reform with that) and also because we, read I, watch too much and we don't want Miloh in the habit. On the list of things he does watch is The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That. Netflix is our friend in the mornings so he will get a bit of that or Sesame Street while the person who's on duty that AM tries to actually wake up. And Miloh truly loves the show. He calls it hat and pats his head. He let's us know that there's a fish on screen every time the fish comes on screen, he dances and says "Go, go, go" when they sing that song. Unfortunately since we really only watch on Netflix we've only seen eight episodes... But this gives me time to really think about the show. Here are some problems with it: The Cat in the Hat actually really knows almost nothing about everything. He does

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
