  Some consider that one of the top rules of good parenting is preparedness. But those people are either crazy or selling something, don’t listen to them. You’re going to do a lot better as a parent if you do so from a solid foundation of reality. When it comes to the reality of your […]

Posted by on December 27th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

The Innerrnets is a strange and wonderful place. Not a day goes by that I don’t say to myself, “Wow. I weep for humanity just a little bit more now that I’ve seen that” after finding some odd bit while surfing the tidal wave of information on here. But I must also confess that occasionally […]

#Lairing My Boys’ Bedrooms

Posted by on December 11th, 2013, under EQUIPMENT, NOTEBOOK

We were so unprepared before Finn’s birth. His room was in disarray and we were in the middle of packing the hospital bag when vaj-agra falls happened. In less than fours hours, we had a baby boy in our arms. This time I wanted to buy all of the things, not just to be ready […]

Snowman Building by Child Age

Posted by on December 2nd, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Babies are really terrible at making stuff. Unless it’s poop or pee, or making us smile and never sleep. So their first snowmen will require quite a bit of parental assembly. Some people wonder why parents do this for their babies (birthdays and snowmen and such), hinting that it’s all really just for the parents. […]

Baby Size Compared to Junk Food (A More Honest Chart)

Posted by on September 3rd, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

From the moment the pee on a pregnancy stick says “yes, the gleam in his eye has met the speck in her tummy,” we start the process of wondering how big the little one actually is in there. Through all the weeks, months and trimesters. So, we find fetal size references that make a woman’s […]

Anatomy of a Sonogram

Posted by on August 16th, 2013, under SNAPSHOTS

When we found out my wife was pregnant the first time we were just so excited that the idea of gender didn’t immediately come to mind. Several weeks in, for some reason, we thought we were having a girl. That thought persisted for a while. The moment we saw Finn’s little peepee on the teevee, […]

Every Day There’s A Moment

Posted by on August 13th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’m crying. I don’t even entirely know why. Time is a formless substance, a vapor until we have children and then it condenses into the form of emotional precipitation. Sure, we lose loved ones or look back to the milestone moments speaking to us from the past, but parenthood changes all of that. We see […]

The Fart Chart

Posted by on August 5th, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Everyone poops. Fact. But before they do, they fart. Anyways, like them or not, they’re here to stay. Well… hopefully not too long actually. You see, holding in your gas can be vital in some circumstances: first dates, once in a lifetime elevator pitches, second dates, epic sports moments, third dates, acceptance speeches, etc., but […]
