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.

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
