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.

Another guest post

I did a little guest post a bit ago for mom-nom.com, the post is below the original pre-amble.

If you head to Mom-nom.com you can see a little guest post I wrote. It's about being a daddy blogger in the midst of a bunch of mommy bloggers.

The post is kicking off Tiffany's new site. It used to be called Feels Like Home but then some other blogger felt that she owned the name because she was thinking about to registering the name...even though really the name comes from a song. And I think it's pretty ridiculous that the other woman threatened a law suit because of this.

And that BS and some other twitter high school antics lead me to one of my greatest literary feats...a little rant on twitter.

The image is below, if you click on it you can read the whole thing...it goes from the bottom up. A little warning if you read it...there may be an f-bomb or 20...and now it's in the Library of Congress...awesome.




Here's the post from Mom-nom.comWhen Tiffany asked me to do a…

Took awhile... Here's an infographic of MF's first year

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in numbers. Diapers (with and without poo), bottles and photos taken are the lines in the background. The markers are milestones. The ones on the top are regular milestones you'd see on a chart and the ones on the bottom are things he did that were firsts. Hint... Use the toggle full page at the lower right of the image... I'm not sure why zoom.it is making it all bitmappy but it's pretty readable. Once I find something better to show this I'll update the image. I'll also be adding to this. I have a lot more I can put on it but I'm not sure when I'll get to it... Check back in 15 years.

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 teacher…
