Thumbsucker - another floorbed adventure

This post may be hilarious or it could be that I'm just short on oxygen from laughing so much that I couldn't breath.

Earlier I put Miloh to bed just as I normally do. Plopped him on his floor bed and lied on the floor next to him with my hand on his back. 4 out of 4.5 times that I do this I fall asleep next to him...and that did happen but that's not the story.

We give Miloh a pacifier when he goes to sleep. It's really the only time he needs one and it's great because it's a cue for him to go to bed, or when he grabs it for us to know he's sleepy.

But he's fickle and often likes a couple—of identical—pacifiers to choose from and/or switch throughout the night.

Now if you remember from an older post he sometimes puts one of the pacifiers in my mouth, you know because I have a hard time sleeping without one.

Today he only had one.

Well there I am lying next to him when he shoves his hand in my mouth...then he scrapped my mouth with his nails and grabbed my teeth and wiggled my head. So I spit out his hand.

He wouldn't have it...he shoved his thumb in my mouth and wiggled it. I kept it there for a few second and I spit it out. Then he put it back in...that's when I started laughing.

I realized he was giving me his thumb to suck for comfort because I had no pacifier. And that's when I started laughing...with a tiny thumb in my mouth...and silently because I din't want to wake him as he was so almost asleep.

He wouldn't let me take his thumb out—he just kept it in my mouth and wiggle it—until he rolled.

And since I was then unable to sleep because I had no pacifier or thumb he tried to get the thumb back in my mouth...but he missed...and now his thumb was in my nose...but just a bit.

And that's when he shoved his thumb all the way up my nose...and I was still laughing...I had been this whole time...I could barely breath.

I either woke him a bit or he realized he didn't have the thumb in my mouth so he made a quick transfer.

Then he rolled.

I soon fell asleep on his floor like usual and without a pacifier or thumb.

  1. Holy hell, I'm like a blog stalker right now. Is it even legal to post comments on posts so close together? Odd.

    Anyway, that is the most hilarious story I have ever read. Completely awesome!!

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
