Hello and welcome to a strange new world. You have traveled far through the desert, only to be met time and again by one empty oasis after another. You are lost and alone, wandering, wondering if someone, anyone, knows how you feel. And just when you think you can't go on, and no one could possibly understand your struggle, a hand reaches out to you, lifts you to your feet, and carries you to the promised land. He feeds you knowledge, shelters you from the self-righteous (and the ridiculous), and provides you with the tools you need to survive in this brave new world. You are a stranger in a strange land, but you are not alone. Let him be your guide. Follow closely as you travel together on this adventure of a lifetime. For now, you are a foreigner to "Fatherhood" but soon YOU will be the master of this realm.

"Chlorophyll? More like Borophyll!:" The Perils of Excluding Green Vegetables from an Infant's Diet

Well, it's actually not that bad. I just wanted to get your attention.

Apparently my daughter's beautiful bronze complexion doesn't come from mine or my wife's side of the family: it comes from not eating any green vegetables. It's not that she had never had a green vegetable, she just hadn't had one since I started shopping for baby food - around two months ago.

The problem wasn't breakfast or lunch, it was dinner. I always assumed baby food had everything your baby needed, all in one glass jar, but I was wrong. It's actually hard to find a baby food that uses a green vegetable.  Turkey Dinner - orange vegetable. Beef and Pasta - orange vegetable. Chicken Casserole - orange vegetable. In fact, most of the time, the only way to get a green vegetable into your kid is to buy the strained peas or green beans, the ones they make for beginners, and add it to your toddler's already complete meals. It's kind of annoying, but it's better than your wife coming home after your daughter's check-up and yelling at you because your kid is orange!
