Email can be fun!

Today’s list is the top 20 email subjects in my inbox.

Sounds thrilling, I know, but wait! Before you run away, let me give you some context.

Our childcare situation is pretty cool–I work, and N.C. stays home with the baby. He’s the stay at home dad. Which is all yay for him and yay for the baby, but kind of boo for me. I may have mentioned before that it rips me up a little bit inside to think of how much I miss with the kid by being at work. So when I went back to work, N.C. started sending me emails throughout the day, complete with photos, to help me stay a little connected. At first I thought it would suck, that constant reminder that I’m not home (where I want to be), the constant barrage of proof that I’m not with him. But honestly, those little emails are the absolute highlight of my day. Some days, I get one or two. Some days I get five. They all have pictures or a sound recording. And they absolutely brighten my day. And I keep them all, so my inbox is filled to overflowing with emails of the kid’s day to day.

But, my husband, he can be a bit of an oddnik. So some of the titles of these emails…well, you tell me:

  1. Good morning from Mr. Surly McSpitup
  2. I’m pretty sure cannibalism is from YOUR side of the family
  3. Tonight we dine on lamb!!
  4. Part hungry, part koala
  5. Happier pooped nekkid baby
  6. Bellytiiiiiiiime!!
  7. Disapproving baby sez…
  8. Aeriel survellience photos for your pleasure
  9. An interlude in fussy and squealy
  10. Monkey McSillyhead
  11. Glornaps McMonkeyKnobs
  12. Burrowing baby can haz milk bottle
  13. BabyTronic functional and online
  14. I thought ADD came much later
  15. Clearly this weird behavior comes from YOUR genes
  16. This is what happens when Dad gets bored while feeding… (ed. these are the ones that always give me pause)
  17. Late feeding on the starboard side
  18. I dub thee…SwaddleTron!
  19. That’s not a bottle, that’s a PHONEY!
  20. The King in his throne and a soggy Dino head

This is just a sampling of the strange email subjects that fill up my inbox. If someone were to hack my email, I figure they’d be VERY confused for a while!

I love the idea your husband sends you these updates. Should we ever have children and should we ever have a stay-at-home parent, it would likely be my husband, too. So, knowing I’ll always be a working mom, it’s nice to know there are ways around the void during your day!

What a sense of humor! These are adorable.

I love these! that’s great that he sends those to you, and I’m sure he looks forward to it, too, because if I recall correctly, there are some times in those early days staying home with a little baby that you’re going crazy for lack of adult interaction.

haha, this is so great! when i first glanced at the list, i thought they were titles for the most creative spam messages ever, but then i decided i should probably read the actual post, and i have to say, i’m even more smiley now 🙂
