An All-Boy House

My female dog digging in the snow
The only female member of our household.
Sometimes people have trouble understanding even the basics of our family, never mind the breastfeeding and milk sharing and everything else. A friend of mine overheard her four-year-old talking to her grandmother on the phone:

“This afternoon we’re going overto Trevor’s house… Trevor and his baby Jacob… No, it’s a boy house. Trevor, Jacob, and Ian… No, it’s all boys! [sounding more emphatic] Well except forQuinoa [our dog]…. Trevor, Jacob, and Ian!... Jacob is their baby!!"

Hopefully grandma figured it out in the end. Yep, guys can raise babies too. In our more audacious moments we even like to think we're pretty good at it.


  1. Trevor - I am loving your blog...absolutely loving it! I love your attitude, the absolute lack of understanding why some of the people you talk about would use formula, exclusively pump, and the baby who self-weaned (HA!) at 4 months... Fabulous!

  5. Nice blog! I also think that family is something that matters a lot and for me, my family is the most lovely one. I want to spend time with them not thinking over my application entering university letter. Personally, I guess that applying early decision for college or university is quite useful for me and I will have time for rewriting it if my university will return it for revision, in such case I am going to use professional writing assistance of freshessays https://freshessay.net/ agency where I can order any kind of application letter or ask writing staff to revise the paper for me because I want to spend the time with my family not in front of the laptop.
