Newborn Identity

Behind The Curtain

Does Annie understand there are people who make animation movies? Or does she think the characters are real? That’s something I’ve long wondered, but never asked her (because I haven’t wanted to do anything that might spoil the magic). With that said, our trips to Disneyland have certainly given me a hint at what she…

Me and Shia LaBeouf, Alone in a Tiny Room

You may have noticed that actor Shia LaBeouf, the star of Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls and the Transformers films, has been acting pretty bizarre of late. The weirdness began late last year after he was caught plagiarizing a short film he made, and since then he’s started answering questions by…

Annie The Paleontologist

Annie loves herself some princesses, but she’s also still very interested in dinosaurs. I find her interest in dinosaurs pretty cool because I also loved dinosaurs when I was her age. My love for dinosaurs wasn’t nearly as sophisticated as Annie’s, though. Whereas I was mostly impressed by their size and how scary the T-Rex was, Annie…

Daddy/Daughter Movie Date: “Frozen” Edition!

Annie has wanted to see Frozen ever since she saw a preview for it last summer focusing on Olaf, the movie’s lovable snowman. Later, when she found out Olaf was actually just a sidekick and the heroes were – wait for it – princesses, she was even more excited. Of course, she wasn’t very happy…

Long Distance Video

Last week I was in New York for work and Annie initially had a rather hard time dealing with it. She’d only just started to get used to the idea that I was going to be working outside of the home and gone during the day when – boom – I was on a business…

Dad At Work

You may have noticed that I didn’t write a blog post last Thursday like I usually do, and that’s because the previous Monday I started a new position at BuzzFeed. BuzzFeed is a cool website with a wide variety of content – it can be funny, serious, political, and full of dog and cat .gifs all at…

11/11/13

Dear Maddie, These days so much of my life revolves around being a dad, and that’s something that all began six years ago with you, when you were born into this world and changed my life forever. It’s hard to put into words what it was like that day, but recently I saw a man…

Yes, Annie, There Really is a Santa Claus

I always knew there would come a time when some kid told Annie that Santa Claus wasn’t real, but I wasn’t ready for it to happen yesterday. Now you might think it’s a little early to be talking about Santa Claus, but my local mall wouldn’t agree. Annie and I were there for a daddy/daughter…
