We’ve all asked ourselves interesting questions. What if we’d lost WWII? What would the world be like if people lived for hundreds of years? How would chairs be designed if our bodies had four legs?

“Bed Time” part 1 : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on November 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Ahhhhhhhh bedtime. Most new parents are surprised to discover that bedtime isn’t a specific point in time, but a theory, really.

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

That first poop-filled diaper. It’s a doozy. It’s like a poop mitzvah. It separates the pros from the amateurs. I remember mine well. I feel like an aid worker on the beaches of Florida after the BP oil spill if the oil had been shot out of a human butt cannon. Those are magical times. […]

Posted by on November 4th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I love when people come to this site for the first time. I wonder what they’re expecting when they step foot on the Dagobah-like grounds of HTBAD. What were they looking for exactly?

The Most Advanced Halloween Costume Ever

Posted by on October 31st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Sometimes I wish I had more definable skills when it came to crafts. Specifically, I wish I could make better costumes and props for my kids. I love playing with my boys, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. My costumes are usually “meh” unless I have help. I suck at it. So, I get to […]
