Making Life with a Kid A Little Easier…Automatically

Having a kid is no walk in the park.  You’re constantly busy, constantly tired, and it never seems like you get a second where it doesn’t seem like you have your hands full (literally and figuratively).  Since arriving at our house 14 months ago, we’ve watched NPP go from a tiny little peanut that spent […]

Gadgets for Parents, Do You Really “Need” Them? – Part 1

Recently, Buzzfeed posted an article “These Are The Items Parents Say You Do And Don’t Need For A Baby“.  I linked to the article, because I think it’s a great look at some of the more “controversial” items parents are faced with buying, and I think it gives them a great look at other parent’s […]

Seriously…why DON’T they tell you these things?!

You know the one thing I never thought I’d say, writing this blog? “I should have listened to my wife.” Throughout the majority of MOMFC’s pregnancy, my inner-cheapskate really become one with itself when it came to buying stuff for this kid.  Did we really need another box of diapers?  Is he really going to poop […]

DCDT Review: DadGear Backpack Diaper Bag

In 5 days, or however many (or few) days Baby Egolf takes to join us, MOMFC is planning on carrying around this incredibly manly diaper bag.  Sadly, I’m afraid that’s just not going to fly in DCDT Land (let along the fact that I’ll never be able to find an outfit that matches that bag). […]

Monthly Toys Before He’s Even Here!

I’m like a college freshman signing up for credit cards just to get a t-shirt when it comes to the monthly box subscriptions.  I’m willing to try just about any subscription, to at least see if it’s worth it for a month or two, so when Citrus Lane was brought to my attention, I gave it […]

A Truly Remarkable Time To Raise a Child

The image for this post doesn’t really have a lot to do with the post, but I guess I can stretch it.  Last night, MOMFC went through a momentary relapse into nesting and allowed me to put together nearly anything that arrived at our house in a box big enough for our dog to use as […]

Sunset to Sunrise

I guess the title of this post is a metaphor, or something like that.  I really just liked the photo that I took this past weekend in Naples.  But, I guess in a way, it is a metaphor for the MOMFC’s pregnancy.  Tomorrow, Friday September 5th, Elise will be 32 weeks pregnant.  That means that, if […]

DCDT Book Review: Dude, You’re Gonna Be a Dad

Another Week brings another DCDT Book Review because, in all honesty, reading books is about all that is left to do right now.  The MoMFC is only 12 weeks away from D-Day, and we’re pretty much in cruise control at this point in time.  So without further ado… The latest read through was the book […]

Wait…There are only THREE Trimesters?!?

The sound you may have heard this morning was more than likely the sound of my mind being blown as my wife reminded me that today marked the official start of the third trimester of her pregnancy.  Now, I may not have picked up that math minor in college, like I had originally planned, but […]

Deciding on a Daddy Diaper Bag

It’s a dirty job and, unfortunately, both parents have to do it.  I’m talking about changing diapers.  They’re full of poop, they’re full of pee, and chances are pretty good that you’re going to have to change a LOT of diapers for a good amount of time. I’m no dummy; I know there’s no chance […]
