Dad Uses His Kid as a Human Drum Machine (VIDEO)

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

If rhythm was a language, it’s clear I’d have both a stutter and Tourette’s. I can’t tap out the simplest beat on my steering wheel, let alone my kids. So, this video is super specially especially amazing to me. It’s not okay to beat your kid… unless you’re harmlessly dropping mad beats like this dad. […]

  Listen, having an imagination is serious business. We enter into this bond of pretend play with our kids, and its easy to lose sight of the fact that this fiction is FOR REAL. Ask a kid. Sometimes, they won’t be able to discern truth from the invention. And its a beautiful thing. As long […]

Posted by on December 5th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Meeting new friends can be scary for little kids. Heck, it can be scary for adults!

I don’t want to get into a pissing match here, and I don’t usually want to do that unless something is on fire, but this grandma could probably lift more weight than you. Meet Willie. She’s 77 years-old and powerlifting like it’s her job. This lady shovels her own snow, beats all of her competition […]

“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.
