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"

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

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
