An Online Event Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Posted by on March 28th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

This is an online event unlike anything you’ve been part of before, or anything we’ve EVER done. It’s going to be insanely amazing. Insanzing? What happens when you combine $2,500 in Twitter party prizes, a custom movie poster grand prize giveaway AND audience-driven nearly-live improv comedy hosted by former SNL cast member, Rachel Dratch, for […]

My Batkid Just Said… #42

Posted by on March 25th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Weww… I din’n’t actuaw-wy save da city.” But you saved me. “Why?” You just did. “Oh!” [Runs off smiling] -Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)   He’s such a well-mannered little superhero. It’s funny to think that our kids will never really know how much they saved us. Even when they have their own kids, I […]

My Wife Just Said… #153

Posted by on March 24th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

[Explaining to our littlest son how trees eat] “Well… The roots are like the mouth of the tree… And I guess the leaves are like… the butthole?”” -Elizabeth   Maybe my wife isn’t the most knowledgeable gardener, but she’s my absolute favorite gardener.   – Previous “My Wife Just Said…” When your kid is asleep […]

An Alphabet According to Kids

Posted by on March 20th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Books and learning products for toddlers and kids can easily give one the idea that our children are being groomed for a future in farming or a jungle expedition. Some of the things chosen to represent the alphabet can be a little random and a lot a bit irrelevant. If you were learning a new […]

3-Year-Old Ninja Caught on Video

Posted by on March 18th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

When I was about ten, I created a home-made pair of nunchucks. I sawed a broomstick into two short kid-ninja-sized handles and then, using screws, attached them together with a short chain. After about five minutes of practicing, I was certain that the authentic Japanese word nunchaku must have been defined as “self-inflicted head trauma.” […]

Teddy Bear – Scrabble Scribble #5

Posted by on March 14th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

  It took a simple doozy from my four-year-old the other day to point out that I’ve fully operated under the belief that teddy bears are always dudes for as long as I can remember. I suppose that all stuffed animals are male unless they’ve got a bow, long eyelashes or syrupy shapes embroidered all […]

Kids Are So Gullible

Posted by on March 12th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Parents trick their kids from time to time (or all the time), for various reasons. It’s so easy in the early years, they’ll believe anything, really. So much so, it’d really be an oversight for a parent to not deceive their kid somehow. There’re all kinds of ways we pull the wool blankie over their […]

My Kid Just Said… #40

Posted by on March 12th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Soooo… how was the wedding?” [confused looks] “…Yours and Mommy’s.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)   It just sort of took us by surprise because it came completely out of nowhere. We both riffled through our crappy parent memories for what wedding he could be talking about. Once he clarified, we both shared a long, […]

My Wife Just Texted… #151

Posted by on March 10th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

So it wasn’t my wife who texted me, but I’ll be honest, I actually stared at this for a solid clueless minute before I replied. I guess I was trying to wring some kind of sense out it, like it was some kind of ancient Egyptian scroll of hieroglyphs my wife had written in emojis. […]

Daddy Vader Says… No Escape

Posted by on March 7th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh…Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh…Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh… Yeah, the breathing is really ominous, sure. But it’s the things Daddy Vader says in between all the robotic huffing and puffing that gets an Imperial officer or a child shaking in their boots. Especially if they’ve just let a rebel ship get away, or because they need to “turn a frown upside down” […]
