We live in a very futuristic today. The world is so technological, in ways very few people could have ever anticipated. And since parenting is the most basic building block of humanity, it’s obviously been affected in many ways. Back in the day, a mom might have made a scrapbook (without the help of Pinterest […]

We have some weird traditions in our household. We hug a lot. We cry together. We talk a lot. We’ve been talking more openly and specifically about equality. In a few days, my wife and son are going to New York. It will be my son’s first time. While I will be here with my […]

A Super Mario Bros History

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

My childhood was pretty damn fun. Sure, there were hard moments but for every rough spot, there’s an equal and opposite bright spot. One of those bright spots was a game called Super Mario Bros. For those uninitiated few, this was the story of a plumber trying to save a princess from an evil dude/lizard/thing. […]

Love Can Be… (8 Parenting Comics)

There’s that famous, beautifully and savagely true quote about how children are like your heart being outside of your body. They get hurt and you gasp as if in pain.

How To Get Rid Of A Christmas Tree

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

A couple nights ago I fought against the angry porcupine that is my Christmas tree. It started when I told my tree, “Hey, Tree. I’m gonna take the lights off your branches now, cool?” It was not cool. Two strands of lights and millions of dagger quills in my body, I finished up. But that […]

My Wife Just Scolded… #299

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

She’s absolutely right. And I’m absolutely incapable of stopping, apparently. When our 7-year-old makes fart noises, my laughter is pretty much a completely irresistible stimulus response. In my defense, he is exceptional at it. Like a Mozart of fart noises. It almost defies belief that he can even make such sounds. You see, I’m not […]

Things I Wish I Had As A Kid: Nerf Armory

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

Childhood is a time for dreams and imagination. For me, that included a heavy dose of lightsabers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles accessories and nerf weaponry. I’d battle my friends every day in various narratives and locations, dueling until the sun went down. But I never had something to house and organize all my cool gadgets. […]

“ME TOO” – Scrabble Scribble #19

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

Kids can be brutally independent. They don’t like this awesome thing. They love that awful thing. They’re their own person, before we and the world ever have a chance to imply what they should be. Then, there’s this age when they become aware of things outside of themselves. They’ve always loved us, their parents, but […]

Moms Get A Different Kind Of Makeover

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

So, listen. I’ve posted about feeling frumpy and ugly before. Becoming a parent can wreak havoc on your self-confidence. The sleep-deprivation and physical demands of pregnancy let alone what happens when they arrive, well, they’re no joke. So, I have a tendency to get a little judge-y and snarky about young people now. It’s like […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]
