Saturday Morning: With Kids Vs. Without Kids

Posted by on February 27th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, SNAPSHOTS

Here’s a painfully funny and accurate before-and-after comparison by @robfee, showing how a person’s Saturday morning goes WITH and WITHOUT the wild, miniature humans we call kids. For those of you with kids, you’re probably laughing or simply rolling your eyes with really breathy been-there-done-that sighs. For those of you without kids, pay close attention […]

Sesame Street’s ‘House of Cards’ Parody Wins My Vote

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

Have you guys noticed how on point Sesame Street has been about their online content lately? It’s almost disconcertingly good. They always seem to have something that communicates to grownups as effectively as it teaches kids about a subject. And for that I am grateful. They have a long history of amazing parodies, from True […]

Maximumble: Dessert

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

  Obviously, Chris Hallbeck has been to my house before. Or many times. I literally could not get my older son, Finn, to eat anything even if I were dying of a gunshot wound or some disease that could be cured by eating new foods. But I like Chris’ style. I, too, wouldn’t be able […]

Business Town Is Where It’s At!

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

Listen, we don’t often recommend many things. Maybe the occasional foot rub or pithy comment after farting in public, but this one is must-see. If you’re at all familiar with the “Busytown” children’s books, and you’ve ever worked around tech companies, then this is for you. An Instagram account has popped up debuting some of […]

Hardcore ABCs Are The Best

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

When it comes to education, there are many styles of learning. This one just happens to be one of my favorites so far. This little two-year-old spells out the ABCs with a little metal. I keep waiting for the camera to pan over to a drummer with 14 bass drums and 18 cymbals. My one-year-old […]

What Heroism Looks and Sounds Like

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

When I was young teenager, my house burned down. It gutted us. All of our belongings, if not melted were so smoke damaged that they were nearly irretrievable. To add to the sadness, the fire occurred just a few days after Christmas. My trophies, family photos — so much was lost. I vividly remember skateboarding […]

“Shopping” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

Every parent that takes their youngling out and about, no matter the age, has probably suffered from Post Tantrum Stress Disorder. You would have bet a Bugatti that they weren’t anywhere near the corner of hungry and tired. You totally thought that nap did the trick. You almost couldn’t believe the plate wasn’t part of […]

8 Bit Cinema: Guardians of the Galaxy

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

I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy. Like, a lot. The parent feels, amazing comedy and incredible effects blew my mind. But some of us don’t have time to get to a theater, let alone spend more than two hours there. You’re in luck, time-poor parents. We found an 8-bit version and it’s phenomenal. Enjoy! […]

A Child’s Imagination

Posted by on January 9th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

One of the things I love most about fatherhood is the opportunity to get down into the nooks and crannies of my own imagination, prompted by my kids. This video is a perfect example of looking through a kid’s eyes. A kid´s imagination from Chris on Vimeo. Never settle for what is there. Always paint, […]
