Random questions

Is there anything cuter than your kid taking your hand during dinner so he can lean on it and cuddle?

Why do kids, at least Miloh, think it's so hilarious to run around while I try to put lotion on him that he laughs until he can't breathe?

Why does our dog thinks it's a good idea to lick Miloh's pee off the carpet?

What would make a kid think you'd want a dried apricot that has been chewed, spit out, chewed and again and then spit out?

Is there anything better than cinnamon sugar?

Why is it hilarious that I eat the same food as Miloh?

How awesome is it when your kid washes your hair while you're giving them a bath?

Have you ever brought a book to bed?

  2. @rachel One day after we were changing him he decided to run all around... then stand in the middle of the room and pee.

  3. The only thing I've found cuter is having one child lovingly pat the other on the head when she's crying.

  4. Also, I've been following your blog through a feed catcher. Trying to read it on the blog is very hard because the text/background colors.

  6. @Justin thanks for the comment. Not sure why my feed would be coming up weird. It should be black type on white. There are two feeds for the blog:

  7. It looks great on the feed. It's when I try to read it on your page itself. I don't get the white background.

  8. I once fell asleep on a copy of "Hand Hand Finger Thumb" and I swear there were book shaped sleep lines on my face for three hours.

  10. @Marcie thanks for asking. I haven't updated officially but did in some comment. Any way it's much better. Once we separated them in the day and since Miloh is walking better and at school in the day there is a ton less fear from Kalli towards MIloh.

    They're becoming buddies again.

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

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

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
