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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Two Week Update – Holy Crap

Two weeks down.  Two blurred, sleepy, fussy weeks. And I wouldn’t change a thing. So…babies are a lot of work.  I’m fully aware that we were told that for the past 9 months, but I’m not entirely sure there is any advice that can be given that can truly prepare you for having a baby. […]

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 […]
