Poker and parenting, right now.

First, a new baby:

And now, a screen shot of a $0.25/$0.50 LIMIT Texas Hold'em game I was in this weekend online.

Look carefully at the player in seat 3.  He's sitting on a stack of $10,000+ chips.  Now he can't possibly lose it all at once, but I found this hilarious.  He sat down with $500 (also an excessive amount) and someone criticized his play, saying that all he has is $500.  So he loaded $1,000.  Then he loaded $5,000.  Then he loaded $10,000. 

I looked him up later and realized he's a very accomplished tournament player, and had won a $27,000 first place prize this past December.  He was just slumming it at the lower limits with us.
