Minneapolis Morning

We headed down to the farmers market at the Guthrie this morning and then took a stroll across the stone arch bridge. We even stopped by the Minneapolis Public Library which is the first time I’ve been there since they re-did it. Turns out it has a really nice kids area and a kids bathroom that […]

Ready or not, it’s potty time.

We all knew this day would come, but so soon? It’s time for potty training. Believe it or not, Lily is ready where as dad’s not quite. At daycare, Lily has been watching another girl get potty trained so she  knows the basics. When she goes into the bathroom, she knows to pull down her […]

Did I just have a conversation at work about butt paste?

I never thought I’d be sitting at working have a conversation about butt paste with a co-worker, but it happened. It all started because he said he had some on his shirt and it snowballed from there. We talked about kinds of butt paste, diaper rash, how horrible it is, crying babies, pooping and all […]

We need diaper fueled heat or cars.

As I once again take a garbage bag full of stinky dirty diapers out to the trash, I can’t help but think there has to be something that can be done with all the dirty diapers. Just think if our cars ran on dirty diapers. We’d be set for life! Or at least a few years. Or […]

Overnight diapers help stop Lily from waking up at night.

Last week I wrote about how Lily was waking up at 4:30am. We thought it might be because her diaper was getting too full so we got ourselves some overnight diapers. Sure enough, that has helped a lot! She still wakes with a really full diaper, but it’s not like her pjs are wet. And […]

The joy of toilet paper.

Lily has recently found the joy of toilet paper. It’s soft, it’s within reaching range, easy to grab, and it just keeps coming the more and more we pull. Needless to say, all toilet paper has been removed from the holder and is up high where little hand’s can’t get. I sometimes wish that I […]

It’s hard to update the daddy blog when someone gets up at 4:30am.

You may have noticed that my posts have been few and far between lately. It seems that Lily has gotten into a habit of not wanting to go to bed easily, and then getting up at 4:30 in the morning. This leaves Dad taking care of Lily instead of perusing the internet and writing blog […]

I think our little girl is sick! Or can teething cause diarrhea?

We’ve been fortunate that our little girl has gone 9 months without any real sickness. However, that streak may be coming to an end. Recently she’s been having diarrhea and many dirty diapers. Yesterday I changed three in the hour she was up in the morning. Usually I change 1 and that’s just the one […]

Pampers Dry Max creating rashes and chemical burns? Not for us.

It seems that there are a lot of rumors going around that the new Pampers Dry Max are causing rashes chemical burns on babies butts. This news was of particular concern to us as we use the Dry Max diapers and don’t want our baby to have to go though this. In fact, a few […]

Safety proofing started, now I’m locked out.

Crap. Now that we’ve started safety proofing the house, there are cupboards I can’t get into and things I can’t get to. The worst part is some are the cupboards under the bathroom sink where the extra TP is. There’s now way you can get these stupid locks off when you realize you’re out. You have […]
