Possible Halloween Costume Review COMING SOON

Hey all,

I've been in contact with a certain Halloween costume website and have asked to review a certain costume. I've also asked to host a giveaway. Not sure if they'll allow it, but hopefully they will. I know you guys all trust my opinions and if it is a great costume you know I'll write a great review.

"What costume?"

Well, I'm saving that for a surprise. I'm sure you'll all love it though.

I'm really stoked about this possibility, so... stay tuned...

2-Year-Old Twin Issues. Need Advice!

Hey everyone,

How in the world do you get twin brothers who are 2 years old to stop fighting constantly? We spank their hands, we take away toys, we've tried time outs and stern voices... but these two seem invulnerable to everything we throw at them. What works best for you guys?

We really do need advice. They love each other so much but at the same time, you can blink and the'll be fighting, stealing each others toys, etc...

We're very open to old-school and new-age tactics. As long as they work and they don't damage their self esteem we're game! :)

Healthy Newborn Tips - Guest Post

Delivering a Healthy Newborn

Every mother wants her baby to be as healthy and happy as can be, and preparing far in advance of delivery day can help ensure that. However, worrying excessively trying to avoid every little risk is likely to do the both of you more harm than good. Promoting your baby’s good health shouldn't have to be a job laced with fear and tireless effort. Consider some of the many ways that you can have prepare yourself ahead of time to have a healthy newborn.

Balanced Nutrition

The importance of eating a varied diet lies in vitamins and minerals. All of the nutrients the human body needs are interdependent on one another. It is essential to toss up your meals and snacks to obtain the full scope of vitamins, minerals and amino acids in order for your baby to develop properly. Many of these nutrients are important components for cell division, hormone balance and neurological development. Well-balanced and frequent meals or snacks rich in fruits, vegetables and proteins will help in development.


Research has indicated that exercise is very beneficial to an expecting mother. Exercise during pregnancy used to be thought of as dangerous to a mother and a cause for a miscarriage; today, exercise not only will help keep extra weight gain at bay, but will also ease the challenge of delivery by allowing a mother to have greater muscle control. Staying active during pregnancy doesn't mean engaging in strenuous activity. Even walking for 20 minutes a day can give dramatic benefits.

Preparing the Home

While it's not possible to completely avoid allergens, you do have a fair amount of control over their levels in your home. Indoor air can be a lot dirtier than the air outside and the constant onslaught can suppress your immune system and open you and baby up to more serious infections. Changing furnace filters and doing a thorough dusting job with electrostatic cloths will also reduce them noticeably. Childproofing is also a process that cannot be done too soon. Childproof the house, like covering the sockets and removing dangerous furniture, can be done before your baby arrives so you will already have been practicing good safety habits.

Quiet Time

Everyone needs time to sit down and relax as part of a healthy lifestyle. Setting up a quiet time where you can do whatever you'd like independent of work or responsibilities helps to prevent stress and fatigue while keeping the mind and body in good shape. The lack of your stress will be felt by your baby and will positively affect their neurology.

Future Health

Research the options available to your baby post delivery to get your baby’s life off to a good start. Circumcision and cord blood banking are two examples of optional choices. Cord blood banking involves collecting the blood of your baby's umbilical cord. Cord blood is full of stem cells, which can help treat nearly 80 diseases today and show considerable promise as a possible treatment for additional diseases. Some of the illnesses these cells are used to treat include cancer, blood disorders, metabolic diseases and immune problems.

I've decided to write a book!

Ok folks... please give me your ideas and opinions.

I am about to embark on something I never thought I'd do. I am about to start writing my first book. Actually, I've already got some of the foreword written. At this point I'm just brainstorming and trying to gather some thoughts. The book is, as of yet, nameless. The theme is going to be based on raising twins during the first year of life from a daddy's perspective. 

When Miranda was pregnant with our boys, who are now pushing two, I looked and looked for a book about twins written in a casual way and from a father's perspective and I never found one. Not even to this day have I stumbled across one. After several months of trying to talk myself out of the work of writing a book I have come to the conclusion that A) this book is needed, B) it would be a great source of extra income for my family and C) it would be a challenge for me that I'd feel really good about conquering.

So, with that being said, please comment here or e-mail me directly (preferred method) at alphadog@windjammercable.net and give me some pointers and ideas about what you'd like to see included. I would love to read stories about your experiences and/or tips and tricks from other fathers (or mothers) about what worked for you. I'm also going to include a section about infant products and readers' experiences with them. So feel free to e-mail me anytime and include any info you'd like to be considered. I will personally go over every e-mail with a fine-toothed comb. I'd love to be able to quote my readers in this book.

Please keep in mind that this book will be about the FIRST year of life of newborn and infant twins. Any information about age one and above cannot be included in this book. If this outing goes well I will continue on and write another book about years 1 to 2.

Thanks in advance for your support. Please forward this post to others you think would be interested in being quoted in a nationally published book. Also, since I've never done this before, I'd love to get some information about any authors out there about the process of writing to getting published. How do I go about this?? :)

Thanks again wish me luck!
