The Onion

Entire Blogosphere Stunned By Blogger’s Special Weekend Post

NEW YORK—In what is being called a seminal moment in Internet history, a rare weekend post by 25-year-old blogger Ben Tiedemann on his…

It was pointed out by a random visitor to the site that our boring blog bears an uncanny resemblance to the above parody post at The Onion. Particularly, this post. I do realize, of course, the totally mundane quality of the things we post here, but as it’s mainly for family, it’s not such a big deal. I could go and compare our blog to something like Facebook and Twitter, where everyone posts (and notifies friends via RSS, email, and SMS) pretty much every bowel movement they have, but ok. 🙂

In other breaking news, we took Maya for her checkup at the orthopedist, and her hips have improved by a few degrees. The harness will still have to stay on a few more months, though.

Oh, and once I’ve had time to mount the other matching shelf, you’ll be sure to hear about it here – your only source for the most important and up to date information about the most banal people around!

    First of all, let me say that I am glad to say you have refrained from reporting on your child’s bowel movements, as some other parents tend to do.

    Second: Hips? Harness? Did I miss a post? Was this mentioned before?

    I am very proud of your shelf experience and I am patiently anticipating the matching shelf success story. Maybe we can even share the moment when we get there. Keep up the good work son!!

    Yeah, we haven’t really mentioned the hips or harness here. Good eye. 🙂 Basically, she had hip dysplasia from birth, so they fitted her with a harness to keep the legs in place. Not a big deal in reality (many babies wear the harness here), but of course, very shocking for new parents.

    Hi Ryan!
    Matthew told me about your website and I’ve looked a couple of times to see Maya. She is so beautiful!!! But, about the harness…When Lauren was born she had an AB abnormality of the left hip. The dr said she would never walk. I found a dr who was experimenting with the “pelvic harness” (it was 1980). She wore it 24/7 for 4 months. She never did walk, she ran!
    Love to you and your family,
