So what do we really have to safety proof?

This weekend we are starting to safety proof our home. I guess it’s time since Lily has got her army crawl down and can move across the room quite quickly. That, and she loves to put everything in her mouth. Here’s what we have on our agenda: Plug up the outlets. Tie cabinets shut; even […]

Daddy Bloggers vs Mommy Bloggers

I was originally going to title this post ‘Do you think that a daddy blogger could survive amongst all the mommy bloggers’ until I did a little Googling and it seems that there are more results for ‘daddy blogger’ than ‘mommy blogger.’ Can that be right?

Going to bed at 8:30 never sounded so good.

Somdays are just more tiring than others. And not for any real reason. Maybe we got up early, maybe we worked hard, or maybe we didn’t sleep good last night. All I know is when the baby goes down, it’s OK for dad to go to sleep too. That’s a perk of having a baby; in […]
