How to Use a Time Out Correctly

Posted by on July 31st, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

This qualifies as a parent hack as far as I’m concerned. Most parents don’t realize the opportunity they’re missing when they send their kids off to the disciplinary Siberia of a Time Out. That they can also take some time out for themselves. We’ve got so much to do as parents. Always. Nonstop. Forever it […]

“Cat” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 29th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’m not sure if this is a “what, just me?” thing, but this video seems to indicate that it’s possible that it’s not just me. You see, I’m talking about that moment in parenting when your kid asks you about something when you’re dead… For me, the first time was being asked by my son […]

My Wife Just Said… #223

Posted by on July 27th, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“Check out my earrings!” Me: Oh, wow. I didn’t even notice them all day. Haha! “Um. Actually, I’ve had these in for week now, honey.” –Elizabeth I just froze and made that awkward “I’m a bad person” face, but she let me off the hook with a casual laugh. I thanked her for not doing […]

100 Years of Dangerous & Banned Toys

Posted by on July 24th, 2015, under NOTEBOOK

It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye, or a finger, or gets cancer. Wait. WHAT?! Before I begin, I must admit that I’ve got a slight nagging worry that the only non-digital toys my children’s children will be legally allowed to play with are… well, none. Not even dirt. Or biodegradable gummy […]

Video of a 10 lbs Baby Being Born IN A MOVING CAR!

Posted by on July 23rd, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

This… is absolutely incredible. It’s like The Fast And The Furious meets She’s Having a Baby. Watch this pregnant mother go from 0-to-Newborn in less than two minutes (seen at 2:14). Don’t worry. It’s not gross, it doesn’t show anything indecent, and aside from some much-understood shouting on the part of the (not for long) […]

“FORE” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 21st, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Teaching young kids something… anything really, can be the ultimate test of anyone’s patience. I’m surprised that kindergarten and preschool teachers don’t have nervous breakdowns annually. Despite the stress and frustration and occasional physical danger, the moment is priceless you see that cute, clumsy little pupil do it correctly (finally!) and then triumphantly squeal their […]

“Friends” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 15th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

The art of BFF-ery can be complicated at any age, and it can be like pinwheels and air-horns and flamethrowers inside when you’re a little kid. This is the sweetest look at the breakdown of friendship you’ll ever see, from the eyes of a 4-year-old girl, played by a fully-grown man. Also? If anyone comments […]

My Wife Just Whisper-Screamed… #221

Posted by on July 13th, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“I have a really bad boob itch! Hug me!” [Hugs me and goes postal on her left breast between us] –Elizabeth We were sitting next to each other in a nice restaurant. Our plates lay before us devastated as we chatted over the soft music playing in the background. Her eyes went wide while I […]

Posted by on July 9th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

Their laughter is contagious. Which is good, because sometimes their jokes are so bad, contagion is the only hope for a laugh. They can also be soooooo bad, they’re hilarious. It’s hard not to chuckle when they laughsplode at a joke they’ve just told that makes absolutely no sense, heck!, it may even have below-zero […]

“13 and a Half” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 7th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Since anything can exist or happen when you’re pretending, it requires some good thought. You need to know what you’re doing. For instance, do you know how old you need to be to qualify as a pretend princess? Or the exact correct way to enter a pretend castle? You see? Tough stuff. Honestly, it really […]
