We’re Back! Let’s Talk About Daycare!

Tags : 

WELCOME BACK Well, it sure has been a while since I’ve had some time to sit down and collect my thoughts on parenting and really reflect on the growth of my daughter and managing a career out of my home. “Why’s that”, you ask? “Where have you been”, you ask? WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK…

Week 33: How Touching! (or Holding Hands With a Circus Monkey)

The Power of Touch I should have titled this section “The Power of Physical Contact” or“The Power of Physicality” or something that sounds smart and more clinical. Touch- I feel like that has a weird connotation in today’s society. How many people do you touch on a daily basis? SEE!? That sounds weird to ask!

Week 31- Who’s Your Daddy?

Who’s your daddy? I AM! Well, I’m Em’s daddy and apparently she’s well aware of that fact. This week my baby girl said, “Da-Da!” not once, but a whole slew of times. We got it on video, too, so this momentous occasion is recorded for all time! I admit, I got a bit teary eyed

Week 30: How to Raise a Little Girl

How Do You Raise a Little Girl? I don’t know anything about girls. When I was younger I thought I did. But I’m older and I realize that I don’t know much about anything, especially how to raise a little girl in today’s society. It almost seems like it’s not enough to be just a

Week 29: Sick Baby Strong Baby Hungry Baby

Holy crap. I’m so tired. Well, I’m still parenting and still working from home. On the upside I’m getting a lot more work than I ever planned on. On the downside I’m getting a lot more work than I ever planned on. Here’s the odd paradox I find about my current situation- I’m getting older

Week 28: New Skills for A New Year

Happy New Year! It’s been a helluva week for baby girl!!! She’s had a few “firsts” and we’ve tackled a couple of milestones. Let me tell ya ‘bout it. BRING ON THE FOODS! First and foremost we’ve finally started her on solid foods. Though it seemed like all of our family was accusing us of

27 Weeks: The Christmas Bandit

Tags : 

Merry Christmas! Now that the pleasantries are out of the way … Holy Crap! What a bananas time of year! My kid made out like a bandit. You’d think she was royalty or something with all the stuff she got. 99% of the presents under the tree were for Emma. I guess that happens with

Merry 6 Month Old & a Happy New Year!

Grandma and Auntie Emma had the first of her holiday guests this past week with the arrival of her Aunt and Grandma. Yes, the same grandmother that fed her to the point of explosive dookies and ended her trip earlier than expected so she wouldn’t have to deal with the aftermath. I still maintain that

Week 25: Quiet Moments & Happy Times

This is pretty much a stream of consciousness post. You’ve been warned. I keep finding out that more and more people read this, which admittedly , is a little embarrassing. But I’m compelled to keep writing. And drawing my little cartoons. It’s a passion hobby at this point. It’s also a good way for me

24 Weeks and She Still Drinks Like a Fish

Tags : 

Here we are in week 24. I’ve said to H, E, double hockey sticks with not giving my daughter solid foods. Actually I’m going to plan on saying H, E, double hockey sticks… I haven’t yet. Why not you ask? I’m scared. I’m not scared of my toothless progeny not being able to handle solid

23 Weeks or This Is How I Work

Tags : 

This actually happened.   This Is How I Work (If you’re not interested in my working life skip this part.) I’ve always wanted to do one of those “this is how I work” posts that I read about on tech and life hacking blogs. They always have some cool editor or globe trotting journalist talking

Object Permanance and the Horror of Separation Anxiety

  You’re 5 months old… maybe learn some independence? I started writing this really early on in the week to avoid coming down to the wire, but it seems that my baby had other plans for my time. As I type, it’s Thanksgiving Day and I am indeed thankful for all the great many blessings

Unsleeping Beauty

Tags : 

“Babe?” “Yes?” “I’m very tired.” “I’m extremely exhausted.” “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!” (Translation: Screw you guys! Feed my face! Clean my dookies! ATTEND TO ME, SERVANTS!) That’s a literal conversation I’ve had several times with Kelly. Sleep? What’s Sleep? What is it like to sleep through the night? It’s been so long that I’ve forgotten. My daughter wakes

Midterm Blowout! How I Voted With a Baby.

Tags : 

Another week, another seven dozen dirty diapers. Ah, parenting. This week was a mild week, filled with a whole slew of first world problems, intrusive elderly folk, and a midterm election, which for me… was a blow out. 20 Week Old Starfish Emma is 20 weeks old and the apple of my eye. To be

Dad Bod, what is it and do you have it? If you do, how do you get rid of it?

I wanted to start running this year in an effort to get into shape, but my wife and our friends knew that wasn’t going to be a thing I did. I suffer from an affliction of being out of shape and unmotivated to find a new and better one. My shape? …Dad Bod. What is

Moving Day- How to Move to Your New Home With a Baby

August: “Hey Babe?” “Yeah?” “We should get a puppy.” “Ok.” October: “And have a baby?” “Sure.” April: “And buy a house.” “Huh? But we got the puppy and the baby.” “The house is for them” “…what do I get?” Who says, “Let’s get a puppy, get pregnant, have a baby, buy/build/move into a new home”

Saddle Up!

Tags : 

“Hey there. Whatcha got in the car seat, fella?” “… Seriously? In the car seat? Well, a boat load of responsibility and a woeful longing for solitude and crapping with the door shut.” “OOH! Let me see!” “Back up you old bitty!” I wanted to discuss how the elderly behave as if they have a

Week 16… a rant

Tags : 

What the Poop? I wanted to write about other topics but I’ve been burdened by a very specific subject this week. I feel like I should have written about this earlier and I meant to eventually get to it, but since I’ve been victimized several times by the same assailant the past few days, I

Wrap It Up! The Swaddle.

“Hey babe, do you think the baby is ok? She’s wrapped up kind of tight?” “Yeah, she’s fine. Is she crying?” “Nope.” “That’s because I swaddled her up tighter than a double meat quesorito with guac at Chipotle. …guac is an extra two…” ” I KNOW GUAC IS AN EXTRA TWO DOLLARS!” And that’s how

The Call of the Baby

Welcome back to my life as a stay-at-home dad / work-from-home illustrator. I’d like to describe for you my experiences communicating with people who refuse to speak the same language as you. People like my child. Granted, it’s not her fault; she’s fourteen weeks old. Words aren’t her thing. Heck, baby sign language isn’t even

“Hey babe, what would you think if I started a blog about my experiences as a stay-at-home / work-from-home dad?” “I think that would be great, babe.” “OK, cool.” That’s how this all began. Well, that, and trying for while to have a baby and then having said baby- our adorable little Emma. Then I
