Posted by on January 13th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Kids can have some gloriously oddball thoughts. And even when they’re the completely normal variety, the way they put those thoughts into words can be pretty flippin’ amusing. Art director and father, Martin Bruckner (Spaghetti Toes) designs pop art out of the sweet or quirky quotes from his cutie pie, Harper, and other little kids. […]

My Wife Just Texted… #247

Posted by on January 11th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

She was watching Jimmy Fallon clips on YouTube one night, and immediately texted me about deforesting my face. I won’t call my wife a germophobe… because she’ll probably read this, so let’s just say she’s… incredibly hygiene-friendly. So, her horrified reaction at seeing something about poop-infused facial hair was no shocker. I promised her I […]

Cannot Stop Giggling (BABY VIDEO)

Posted by on January 6th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My brovaries nearly exploded and I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this. It’s never a good idea to over-sell it before you share something funny. “THIS IS SO FUNNY!!!” never made anything funnier. BUT! If you watch this and don’t laugh, say “awwwwwwwwww” or at least crack a smile at some point, I’m very […]

The Heights of Growing Up

Posted by on January 4th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

We teamed up with Clorox to tell you some stories of the trials and treats of parenthood.   We want them to grow up, it’s our job as parents, but at the same time we soon learn how bitter-sweet it can be. When their tiny little fists let go of our thumbs. When we can’t […]

Dad Jokes Hall of Shame – PART 3

Posted by on December 30th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

The holidays have taken their toll on most of our waistbands, but hopefully (hopeful-ish sorta maybe?) the season of dad jokes has also thoroughly worked out our eye-twitch muscles. Think of the calories people burn when the dad jokes you tell cause cough-laughs, hours of frowning or eyerolls so violent, people break a sweat. In […]

My Wife Just Said… #245

Posted by on December 28th, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

[Whispering] “I’m so sorry. He said he reeeeeally wanted Monopoly.” –Elizabeth   She said this after he tore off the wrapping paper and gasped with joy. I mouthed, “You owe me.” We both totally knew that I was the one who was going to be playing it with him. And by playing it with him, […]

Merry Squeeeeeeeemas Eve!

Posted by on December 24th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

It’s Christmas Eve. Every year, on the day before the big day, I like to take a moment to open up my mind, in some pretend telepathy of sorts, and think about the hundreds of millions of kids out there who are positively vibrating with excitement and anticipation. Whether they still believe in Santa or […]

The Snowman Apocalypse

Posted by on December 22nd, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

I remember avidly reading Calvin and Hobbes through my youth. Seeing this little boy’s seasonally majestic, twisted and hilarious snow creations made me wish for something most people grow to dread where they live. Snow! It’s officially winter in L.A. And by that I basically mean I can’t comfortably wear shorts anymore and my nipples […]

A Little Boy’s Very Cute First Time as Santa

Posted by on December 17th, 2015, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

I partnered up with Target to share this adorable new chapter in my son’s Christmas experiences.   My little son is 6 and a half now, and he’s really starting to get how the whole gift giving thing works. Beyond receiving as many of them as he possibly can. He’s in that vague place between […]
