History’s Freakiest Baby Products

Posted by on January 19th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes we parents will come across ads or informercials for baby and kid-related products that seem silly or kinda useless. If we look back in time, though, when “men were men and women were women,” and both apparently didn’t seem overly concerned with infant or child safety, we can behold some very weird or outstandingly […]

Posted by on January 17th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

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 […]

Love Can Be… (8 Parenting Comics)

Posted by on January 11th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

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. They make an achievement and you’re filled with pride. They’re brutally honest and, well… you still love them, even though your smile might now be […]

My Wife Just Scolded… #299

Posted by on January 9th, 2017, 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 […]

“ME TOO” – Scrabble Scribble #19

Posted by on January 5th, 2017, 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 […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by on January 3rd, 2017, 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 […]

Dad Jokes Hall of Shame – Part 5

Posted by on December 30th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

The year is almost over! For some of us it’s been a rough ride. So rough that the 2016 has become an internet joke, likened to the grim reaper or Game of Thrones author, George R. R. Martin. Yikes. Laughter really is one of the best antidotes for stress and trauma, so here’s another installment […]

A Toddler’s Guide to Being a Helpful Passenger

Posted by on December 28th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Driving with kids can be rough. Quite often “rough” like wearing a potato sack for underwear on a 10 mile marathon. They really do make it interesting at any age. When they’re little bundles of burps, it can be surprise diaper blowouts, random screaming and begging for you to hand them this, that and everything. […]

My Wife Just Said… #297

Posted by on December 26th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Our 7-year-old son has been hopped up on the holiday spirit for weeks now. Being at home, off schedule with family visiting and generally consuming above normal levels sugared goods have all certainly contributed to his state of heightened festivity. Playing, even by himself, somehow turns into a full-contact sport and can sound like a […]

Grandpa Vader & Kylo, A Christmas Story

Posted by on December 22nd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

This is amaaaaaazing. Even if you’re not a stark raving Star Wars fan like me, you’ll still appreciate a lot of the relatabale moments shown here, when grandparents look after their grandkid. Sure, regular grandparents might not be spoiling your kid quite like Santa Vader, and when they break your rules, it’s necessarily your “no […]
