10 Father & Son Comic Strips

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

It all started when I discovered some pencil graffiti on the side of the house. My little boy was so afraid he’d get in trouble, he may have said that a squirrel drew it or something, he was 4 after all. So it was a surprise for him, when I said they were amazing and […]

5 Superhero Powers of Fatherhood

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

After having kids, I noticed I had some strange, unique abilities that never made themselves known while I was child-free. Maybe it’s because I spent last week at Comic-Con or maybe I just haven’t slept in about 7 years but I’m starting to wonder if all this parenting hasn’t mutated me or unlocked superpowers. It’s […]

My Wife Just Used The Mommy Voice… #275

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

He’d been repeatedly yanking the dog’s tail when they were playing and that can go wrong fast, in a few ways, so we were getting a little fed up with him doing it. She definitely used her “Mommy Voice” on him and he cried mostly out of guilt that he’d done it again and because… […]

What I Worry About

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

Occasionally, a parent-to-be will come and ask me for advice about parenting. Crazy, right? They’re so focused on what could happen or what to do, they miss one of the most important elements of the whole process. It’s not for lack of trying or thoughtfulness, but most of us start off with a mindset that […]

Dogs Tolerating Kids Magnificently (14 GIFs)

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

The world would be a much better place if we all had the patience and forgiveness of most dogs. It’s positively amazing the crap they can endure and come through with their irrepressible, tail-wagging cheerfulness. Babies and kids are a true test of most living things, and our four-legged friends seem to pass the test […]

When This Kid Goes Ayaaaaa…

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

There are few things cuter than kids attempting something and failing. But when that kid is in full uniform and performing martial arts? CUTENESS OVERLOAD. I’ve loved watching my son do karate. Many Saturdays and Sundays have been spent watching him flail around kicking and punching the air with infectious enthusiasm. So, if you need […]

Passing 3 Childhood Cereals On To My Son (Video)

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

Sponsored by General Mills Cereals. Our little son hasn’t tried many cereals. It’s mainly because one of his favorite hobbies in the world is not trying any new foods at all costs. As in our grocery costs. Ugh. So, when the little guy pushes a depressingly full plate of breakfast away or comes back from […]

My Wife Just Said… #274

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I don’t know what to do. Ground him? Staple his pant legs to a chair? Stop time? How do we prevent our children from growing up too fast without stunting everything that makes them fun to watch grow up? I guess we can’t have it both ways, so we just get to cling to the […]

Pokémon NO – The Game App for Non-Players

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

Some of us don’t have even half a percent of a clue how to play, but the online/real-life game Pokémon GO is a wildfire sensation! Eyes glued to their smartphones, people are swarming the streets and alleyways and random corners of parks and all kinds of normally-boring places to “catch ’em all.” Sadly, not everyone […]

The Conceit of Clark Kent

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

We’ve all donned, at one time or another, a costume made from something pretend. A hero, a princess, a warrior, an artist — we found our identity through this play. Imaginations have always been part and parcel to the fabric of childhood but we grew up, forced to focus on the road ahead, and we […]
