Things I never thought I'd say

Part of the collateral damage of having children is stringing words together in a way that you never thought you would.

Here's some things I've said the last few weeks:
  • "What made you think pouring granola over your head was a good idea?"
  • During the diaper change that happened right after: "let me get that granola off your penis."
  • "Why are you smooshing a sweet potato into your knee?"
  • "You can put your balls on the table but don't let Kalli (our dog) eat them again." It was mozzarella.
  • "That's not the (female) dog's belly button."
  • "Don't tell mommy I taught you that." I forget what it was... 
  • "They cat doesn't want to take the aardvark for a ride."
  • "Why did you pee on my pillow?"
  • Followed by: "it's not funny."
  • Followed by: "it wasn't funny the first time, it's not funny this time."
  • "Tell your doggy to go potty." It's a wooden pull toy he takes out when I take out our dog.
  • "Putting your foot in your oatmeal was not an uh oh."
  • "The platypus says... Well I don't know what the platypus says."
  • "Look, I went poopy on the potty" Not my finest hour... Don't judge.
  • "Don't splash in Kalli's water." 
  • Followed by: "Why are you drinking water out of the carpet?"
  • "No, no, no. Love you. No." I forget what he was getting into. 

So what are the things you thought would never come out of your mouth? (That question is me being social in the social media space... How about that?)

  1. I really should have kept a log all these years. "Do not put your penis on my phone" comes to mind.

  2. I have said many things i swore I'd never say, but I still refuse to say "use your words."

  3. @C I've already said use your words. But we stopped that. Although today I did say "look at you using your words that I'm not sure are even technically words"

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.

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…
