Help me help you help me cure cancer (and be less fat)


Turns out I'm fat. Stevie is back to her pre-pregnancy weight. I am not. I know… I hate her a little for it too. So it's time to get my ass off the couch, get on to the road/treadmill/footpath and start attempting to avert my descent into the glorious world of Type 2 Diabetes and Sleep Apnea Masks. I want to be Batman. I don't want to be Bane.

My 3 Hours as a Stay At Home Mom

Hey gang! Dad here. This week's blog post comes from my lovely, wonderful, kind, patient, pretty wife who is definitely not mad at me for leaving the kitchen a complete mess last night. She's been staying at home with the Captain since he was born and today decided to keep the Duchess home from daycare for a fun filled stay at home mom day. Here's what happened: 

Ten years ago, I would have told you that I would NEVER be a stay-at-home mom. You know, because of something to do with Feminism... and because I want to "contribute" to the household like an equal member of society. (Since clearly the only way to contribute is money.) Now, at 25, I still think I will never be a stay-at-home mom but for an entirely different reason: it's hard as shit.

Deschutes Brewery Is Anti Lead Ink - Pro Customer Service

So I'm still working on this week's post, but I just wanted to drop in and give a huge shout out to the awesome customer service at Deschutes Brewery. Here's what happened:

Earlier this year Stevie and I took the Duchess on a road trip to the Oregon Coast. We were accompanied by a couple friends and their son who is the Duchess's age. We rented a van and drove all the way to the coast and back. If you'd like to read about the trip and what I learned, you can read about it here: Dad's Guide to Road Trips with Toddlers.


ANYWAY... during our road trip we stopped at a few different breweries around Oregon. At each one a purchased a pint glass, all of which now live in my cupboard and are used regularly. The other night I was drinking out of my Deschutes Brewery glass when I noticed that I had some paint on my hand. I then looked down at my shirt, and it was all over my shirt! I didn't care so much about the shirt, but I was super bummed about the glass, which now looked like this:
