Toddlers in the office


Given some of Miloh's new phrases and thoughts I got thinking what would office life would be like if our minds stayed in the toddler stage, although some people may think that happens anyway.

We'd get emails like this:


From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I got to work today and turned on my computer.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I closed the door to my office.

Thanks, Miloh




From: Boss
To: All office
Subject: Some praise for Miloh

Hi all, I have some very exciting news today. About ten minutes ago I looked at Miloh and asked "Do you need to go to the potty?" And he said yes. So I put him on the potty and he went.

This is a great day for our whole team. In honor of this milestone we'll be having a celebration with ice cream after nap.

Please stop by his office and congratulate him,
The Boss.

Just wanted everyone to know I went potty today too.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: Trucks, Trucks, Trucks

Hey boss, there were trucks outside the office yesterday and they aren't there today. Where did they go?

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: My toy

Delilah took my toy.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Boss
To: Miloh
Subject: re: My Toy

It's not your toy. And you have to share.



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

But she took my toy. It's my toy. Miloh's.



From: Boss
To: Miloh
Subject: re: My Toy

You have to share.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

Delilah pushed me after I took my toy and pushed her.




From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: My Toy

Miloh, It's not your toy. And you get a time out for pushing her.

Hands are not for pushing.





From: Delilah
To: Boss
Subject: Miloh pushed me

Miloh pushed me and took my toy.

Thanks D




From: Boss
To: Delilah
Subject: re: Miloh pushed me

Delilah, First off, it's not your toy. But he got a time out for pushing you. You will get a time out if you push him again.

Hands are not for pushing.

Thanks






From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: I did it

Just wanted you to know that I threw a noodle on the ground at lunch and you picked it up for me.

Thanks, Miloh



From: Miloh
To: Boss
Subject: re: Trucks, Trucks, Trucks

Hey boss, haven't heard back from you about the trucks. Where did they go?

Thanks, Miloh




From: Boss
To: All office
Subject: Naptime

Everyone go to sleep.




Of course that wouldn't be the end but you get the point. But as I wrote I actually recognize some of these emails from jobs I've had... Which is scary.

  1. I wish we had naptime at my office. I work in a school. Room 215, to be exact. It wouldn't be that weird to put cots in a high school English classroom, would it?

  2. You might want to consider therapy after creating all this.

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

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
