My Wife Just Said… #206

Posted by on March 30th, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“Someone please tell Vader he left his helmet in the bathroom again.” -Avara   I’ve done a pretty good job of making my family as geeky as possible. Not a day goes by that one of us doesn’t reference Star Wars or a similar cadre of geek literature, films or otherwise. And being a geek or […]

30 Years of Walt Disney Logos

Posted by on March 25th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Back in 1985, a movie came out called “The Black Cauldron.” It marked the first time Walt Disney logo was added before their films. You’re probably familiar with this one… But what happened after that was an evolution in thematic concepts and it was pretty cool. Some of them are better than others, but it […]

Maximumble: Play with Food

Posted by on March 24th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  I can’t tell whether the thing my sons do with food could be considered playing with it, but they sure do mess around with it. Is there such a thing as food bullying? In an event, distracted eating seems to be a universal theme. – Join Maximumble’s Facebook page: GO HERE! Check out his […]

Zach Galifianakis Does Standup For Preschoolers

Posted by on March 20th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

A few of us have imagined what it would be like to take a standup comedian and put him in a room full of kids to try out his jokes. As dads, we’re always testing new material on our kids. Some of it flops and some hits the mark. Mostly, poopy and farty jokes get […]

Maximumble: Baby Brother Toys

Posted by on March 18th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  As a brother myself, I have some idea of how hard things are for Finn. A new, smallish person invaded his life and he was forced to share his parents. It’s brutal. But nothing says brotherly love like seeing his younger brother, Arden, grab for one of his toys. Did you have a sibling? […]

“That moment when you buy your baby his first vintage rock T-shirt & the band comes on the radio & he proceeds to dance along (baby style).” -Avara   Avara and I constantly remark how amazing our boys’ style has always been.

Ryan Gosling’s Childhood Video Teaches Us Everything

Posted by on March 10th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

There are so many parts of parenting that can feel cruel and unusual in their punishing qualities. Timeouts, if you do them. Teaching your kids to tie their shoes, if velcro isn’t handy. You name it. But I’d like to take a second and propose that blackmailing your kid might be a good idea. Case […]

Maximumble: Band-Aid Parent

Posted by on March 6th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  Sometimes I walk into work and it’s like everyone knows I have kids. Maybe it’s the stains on my clothes or bags under my eyes. I can feel the child-free eyes boring holes into my soul. And then I remember that these things are badges. They’re my contribution to those without children. Scaring them […]

My Wife Just Instagrammed… #202

Posted by on March 4th, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“Real Jedis use their hands. And feet.” -Avara   Finn has gotten so fixated on things being certain ways. Sometimes, when we read aloud to him and mispronounce characters’ names from Harry Potter books or Star Wars comics, he just gets very particular. I respect it, usually. Cut to: his brother wielding a lightsaber incorrectly. “Dada, […]
