Where have I been, and Where am I going?

I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t slack off on the blog, lose track of time, and then have a year go by with zero posts.  Thankfully, I realized this morning that it’s only been 11 months, so I’m keeping my promise. So now the big question: Where have I been, and where […]

Making Baby Food: You Would Think This Would Be Easy

Making baby food.  You would think this would be easy, right? As you’ve no doubt read in previous DCDT posts, I’m a big fan of gadgets.  If there’s a problem that can be tackled with some piece of technology, chances are real good that I’m going to try and convince MOMPC that we should probably buy […]

No Sleep, Yes Prints, and Kind (not) Strangers

Thanks, (Not) Strangers! The realism of being a parent really seems to have set in these past two weeks, and has made me incredibly thankful for the people in our lives who help MOMPC and I take care of NPP.  A week and a half ago, our daycare provider went on maternity leave, which meant […]

The Fear

I’d love to say that, at this point in time, MOMPC and I have everything figured out, NPP is sleeping through the night, we have no issues with naps or feedings, and we’re already signing the little guy up for AP courses! I’d love to say that, but I’d also love to not be a […]

Memories Fade, But Photos Last As Long as the Ink Is Still Good

If you follow me on any form of social media, you’ll know that I went on a bit of a tirade about a week or two ago.  I had a bit of a moment of panic while browsing the internet, looking at photos of my child.  I started to reflect on the days when I […]

“But…His Butt Is Already Dirty!” or Society’s Lack of Men’s Room Changing Tables

Ashton Kutcher was recently in the news for something other than his illustrious film and TV career.  Having just become a father (and making his baby one of the luckiest milakunis kids on the planet), Ashton learned what most fathers will learn very early on in their careers as fathers.  Ashton went to Facebook to […]

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 […]
