Getting Attention in the Mist

Photo-A-Day #1945

Today I worked from home. Working from home is one of those great things but also a challenge. Eva is so used to me being available for playing that it is tough to separate that part of me from the work part of me. Anyone else who is a work at home dad having the same issues? How do you deal with the guilt when your child asks you to play with them?

Eva did get introduced to the movie Lilo and Stitch today. She liked it just a little bit. I think it was too fast and there was too much action for her. She kept asking what happened to this character or that one. She is such a little scientist, asking so many great questions. That is both awesome and tough for me. It is so great that she has so many questions. I think I need to ask more questions, I spend so much time answering them that I don’t take the time to ask more of them. We can learn so much from our little ones.

Today I went and discovered something very fun on YouTube. Do you remember the Superbowl Ad from Google? Well you can go and make your very own one. So today I went and made a very special one for Ted Murphy for his Birthday.

Ted is famous for Cake Plows and he certainly did one for birthday but I want to hearken back to my first cake plow courtesy of Ted Murphy.

Then because I’d been reading Jim Kukral‘s book and remembered that he had said something about trying to get his attention. So drawing on my knowledge of Jim I made this video.

I was trying to do this subtly but I have Youtube automatically post to Twitter. I wanted to see if it organically found its way to Jim. But he is so connected to what is happening that he found it right away. I wonder if Jim remebers this video from November 16, 2007.
