Upcoming Q&A and a clips post

Remember that time I gave my PR policy? Well I got a couple emails since and sent out invoices but have received nothing so emails go unread.

But I received one from the folks at Gilt Children and since they have tweeted back and forth with me in the past I waived the $10 fee.

Additionally on this Tuesday the 26th of April at 8pm EST I'll be doing a Q&A on the Facebook page. It will be focused on dads getting a say in room style, maybe a little montessori stuff if people ask and anything else people want to ask me about my style of dad-ness.

If you want to join the Like Gilt Children on Facebook and show up on their page at 8pm EST on the 26th. If you know me in real life or follow me on twitter you know this is kind of huge because I hate Facebook.

And that all leads me to my clips show portion of this post. If you're new to the site because of the Gilt thing here is a really horrible summary of this blog.

You should start with my first clips post that will bring you up to speed on me going form a dude who was completely scared of kids to a dad of a then 3 week old kid.

I'm happy to say that while I feel completely comfortable around Miloh I'm still freaked out by a lot of kids especially when they are in packs.

Another thing you should know, especially because the Gilt thing is a bit about style, is that we had Miloh on a floor bed and never a crib... It's a montessori thing.

I say had because here's some breaking news that's a bit old... So I guess it's broken news... About 2 weeks ago Miloh got a real toddler bed. I should probably right about it a bit to sum up the floor bed and I will... But the gist is he was loving his cot in toddler school so we thought we'd try him on a bed... And he likes it.

You should know that in the time Miloh was on the bed he never had a stray roach fall on his head. Honestly I can't explain that comment without getting long winded so just read that post.

We took a tally of a lot of things during Miloh's first year and they ended up in some infographics... Still a couple more to go.

And I had some Weekly Wisdom for Miloh in the past but I've given him all the wisdom I have so that's on hiatus for a bit.

So that's a summary... And while it has nothing to do with me really please check this post about Megabolt and their great sketchbook project for kids in hospitals.

  1. I really wish you lived closer. I have a toddler bed that's ready to be donated. Sigh. So cool that he's liking it though.

  2. I think about your floor bed all the time and think about what a great idea it would be. My now one year old sleeps in our bed but I feel like if I could lay with her in her crib she would stay there longer. Of course we'd have to make some safety adjustments in her room but still I think this would have solved a lot of our sleep problems.

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

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

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 teac
