Fall is upon us. And with it, of course, the floodgates of pumpkin spice have opened. People either love it, or love hating on it. But for all the people who aren’t doing caffeine and sugar fueled cartwheels over this seasonal flavor gimmick, there’s a vast world joy to be had making fun of it. […]

My Wife Just Said… 332

Posted by on September 26th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t be the only parent who’s gotten caught into a rut with family movies. My son is young enough that there are a bunch of movies that come with the price of nightmares or restless sleep, so there are some extra limitations beyond what’s generally considered age appropriate or not, not to mention whether […]

The Symptoms of Bad Influence-itis

Posted by on September 22nd, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

I’ve joined forces with Responsibility.org as one of their paid ambassadors for their TalkEarly campaign, which is about, well… talking early about alcohol responsibility with your kids. Cheers!   Parents can make little furry loaves of fallen-out hair in the shower drain worrying about their kids getting sick. But, there’s another non-physical strain of contagion […]

My Wife Just Said… 331

Posted by on September 19th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Trust is an important part of marriage. When you can be counted upon to be totally and shamelessly honest about something like bodily functions, or MALfunctions as the case may be, you can present a pretty believable case in your defense of “dealt it vs. didn’t deal it”. When our son was younger and tore […]

My Kid Just Said… #64

Posted by on September 15th, 2017, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

I like to think of words as ingredients in a sentence or statement. You’ve got your fast-food m’kay’s and Idunno’s, and you’ve got your everyday meals of chit chat, and there’s also the more elaborate culinary creations of deep philosophic discussions and funny stories. Sometimes, though, I like to whip up something a bit spicy. […]

11 Edgy Parodies of Animated Classics

Posted by on September 13th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

There’s a lot of hilarity to be had when a web comic takes something intended for kids, and puts an adult-ized take on it. Sure, there have been tons of mature jokes subtly hidden in a lot of children’s cartoons and animated films, but there’s nothing subtle about these jokes.   1. Old Habits Adam […]

Posted by on September 8th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Every parent knows how absolutely crazy kids can be about food. Throw that hot mess into the public arena of a restaurant and things only get nuttier. So, let’s have a look at some reviews toddlers might write, if they could write like us big people.

My Wife Just Said… #330

Posted by on September 5th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I have to imagine that other parents do this thing my wife and I do, when deciding what we’re going to watch. After the kid’s bedtime, and by that I mean, after he’s gotten up once or twenty times, when he actually goes to for-real sleep, we settle down for some of our own hard-earned […]

Dad’s First Diaper After the Baby Starts Eating Solids (Hilarious Video)

Posted by on September 1st, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

It’s been a very long time since I changed a diaper, but I clearly remember my first diaper change ever, and the first diaper change after we switched to solid foods. EVERY parent will remember this. Even if it’s not a picture-pefect stomach-churning flashback, we can all at least vaguely remember how shockingly horrible it […]

My Wife Just Mommy-Brained… #329

Posted by on August 30th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

There’s a term called “mommy brain.” Sure, men can have daddy brain, too, of course, because it simply refers to the incredibly dumb things you say and do (or forget to) as a parent because your kids and life have ganged up and mugged the majority of your IQ points. When our parental noggins are […]
