Captain’s Log, Stardate 010109
USS BabyPod
Space Commander SteelyKid reporting


“Our mission to explore the dining room is progressing well. It is almost time for Baby Blogging, and–“

“Commander, sensors have detected a ship!”

“On screen!”
“What the heck is that?


“It’s an alien space raider! Battle stations, everyone! Prepare for evasive action!”


“Hard to starboard!”


“Now back to port, and blast ’em! Eat laser death, space monkeys!”


“Ha! Got ’em! Well done, everybody. This sector is now safe for babykind.”


“A job well done. Mr. Sulu, you have the conn. If anybody needs me, I’ll be in my quarters, taking a nap.”



(Yes, this may well be the dorkiest thing I’ve ever posted. But her little activity seat thing that she got for Christmas really does look like some sort of command chair for a baby space exploration mission…)

    Indeed, “dorky” was my first thought, with a big smile and a “lovable” attached. Very lovably dorky. And cute and sweet and all that squishy mushy stuff. She’s a doll.

    Now you’re in for it! Tomorrow, she’ll be asking for the keys to the car!

    What a cutie!

    Hmmm… Won’t that make a series of embarassing pictures when she grows up? ^_^

    That post will be difficult to top this year.

    But I don’t think she will find it embarrassing. She will point out that it reflects her geeky dad’s projection of his geekiness onto a normal baby activity.

    Far from “dorky”, Chad……….you (or Mommy) captured some of the sweetest smiles; we can almost hear the sounds/noises you were making to get Steelykid to grin and bear it. Are you sure Uncle Joe (the champion of goofy noises!!!)wasn’t somewhere in the room?

    You totally win the internet, Chad. That was pure awesome.
