Without a doubt my favorite cake in the world is a Pilsbury Funfetti cake with Funfetti icing. That's the cake that I associate with childhood birthdays, and really does a food memory get any better than that? For a long... Continue reading

These two little guys take up a lot of time! Who knew babies were so labor intensive? Marisa is doing most of the heavy lifting, but that still leaves plenty for dear old Dad to do! I've often had the... Continue reading

Tomorrow I'll be getting up early to run a 5K (instead of getting up early because a baby is crying though I am willing to bet that will be happening too!). In case you missed it, I'm running to raise... Continue reading

I know every parent thinks their kid is a genius, but how many of those so called "parents" have an 8 week old who seemingly was curious about his healthcare coverage, obtained a phone, called their health insurance company, and... Continue reading

You ever wonder what $26.97 worth of change looks like? Wonder no more! And here’s the breakdown by coin: I have no idea how I managed to get so many dimes, but thanks to Coinstar I’ve converted these useless metal... Continue reading

I've been meaning to write about the things I want to see in a new Kindle for awhile. This post has been percolating in my head for so long, in fact, that a new Kindle Oasis was released awhile back.... Continue reading

We live in a world where it made sense to me to pay for 3 years of a service up front despite the fact that: I’ve never used the service, nor has anyone else. I won’t be able to use... Continue reading

Yesterday was full of fatherly firsts for me. I have left off the names of the babies involved to protect the innocent (and their eventual teenaged egos); here is the anonymized list: I grabbed, with my hand, a giant booger... Continue reading

A little while ago we began to find a single piece of glitter on Declan's head at some point during the day. It could happen during the morning feeding session, or whilst changing his diaper, but each time it would... Continue reading

I’ve been on Parental Leave for the last few weeks. The above picture pretty much sums up how it is going. Oh, and safe sleep people don’t worry - Marisa was there and making sure that nothing happened to the... Continue reading

I don't have a lot of super clear memories of my childhood, though it was a pretty good as these things go. I was oblivious about my parent's very rocky marriage (which ended when I went to highschool though it... Continue reading

TL;DR - I'm raising money for colorectal cancer again, so give some money! Fatherhood isn't how I'll define myself, but since I've been home for the last few weeks adjusting to life with Sammy and Declan they have been very... Continue reading

The other day I tweeted about the 7 mile run I did outdoors: I know lots of people run much further than this, but I'm proud of today's run. I have ran this far outside in... A long time. And... Continue reading

As a D&D geek I couldn't resist buying The ABCs of D&D (I also ordered The 123s of D&D but that hasn’t arrived yet) to read to my children (sidenote: that’s still a very strange sentence for me to type!)... Continue reading

On that latest episode of Upgrade a listener asked Jason and Myke how often they change the wallpaper on their various devices (Mac and iOS). This got me to thinking about my lovely iPad Pro’s screen and how I couldn’t... Continue reading

This is mostly a test to see if I can still post via email to my blog. Also, isn't this cute? It cost $2! Continue reading

As I sit here at 1am with a very awake Sammy I noticed the hedgehogs on his onsie. Every time I think about hedgehogs my thoughts turn, as you would expect, to ice cream. Ok, that might need a little... Continue reading

For most of my life I've made special efforts to avoid babies. When a friend has given birth I would visit and say the right things but politely decline if asked to hold the baby. Or feed the baby. Or... Continue reading

Physical is the way to go with technical books, I think. Though I also buy a bunch of physical books too (and go to the library!).

View this post on Instagram The twins have arrived! Sammy and Declan were born early this morning. They will be spending some time in the NICU. @marisakleinmcclellan did an amazing job (as always) and is resting and healing. A post... Continue reading

Why? Because I love Kindles, silly! I won't be writing a review of it because I'm lazy and tending to some tiny helpless people, but I will point you to my pal Jason Snell's Kindle Oasis review: Yes, the $120... Continue reading

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting story about baby boomers not being able to sell the giant houses they built. This quote sums up the real problem: The couple, who relocated there from New Jersey, will likely move into... Continue reading

Whenever I pay for something with my iPhone I feel like I’m living in the future, but I’m also slightly saddened. Why? Because of unrealized potential. What the hell am I talking about? Having my credit cards, plane tickets, and... Continue reading
