o I had every intention of putting together a new blogpost today. Like normal I had it all laid out in my head, including text, links and pictures. But both the big kids were sick yesterday, so the usual routine around the house is in total upheaval. That and Episode VI decided about a week ago that he likes waking up between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning. Don’t want to get him out of the crib at that hour? No problem. He’ll motivate you.
“I’m just gonna keep turning up the volume on this screaming here until you break down and get me out of my crib,” he says.
“I know most babies would give up after 45 minutes. Nope, not me. Watch me crank it up again.”
Long story short, I’m lucky I got out of the house with matching socks this morning. I got to work, settled in, and got all revved up to write a post about the cutesy, dorky little thing we did this weekend when all of a sudden I realize…
…I left my phone at home this morning; along with all the photos that I needed for the blogpost.
What do you do when you’re all revved up to work on the blog but you don’t have any pictures to work with? Why, make up your own pictures of course.
So today, between patients, I noodled around with a few new thematic ideas for the blog. Ultimately I like the “look” as it is, so I don’t plan on changing things up any time soon. But it’s still fun to get the creative juices going. Here they are. Tell me what you think, and which one is your favorite:
Candidate 1: Adventure
Candidate 2: Oddly Multicultural Street In New York:
Candidate 3: Irondork (special thanks to faithful DorkDaddy.com Facebook participant Jeff Reisdorfer for working this up on his own initiative)
Candidate 4: The Grid
Candidate 5: Because Some People Demanded It
