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.

Comments

  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.

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…
