Vine Picks: That Happy Family, Clayton Farris & Robby Ayala

Posted by on August 11th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

We’ve been spending a bit more time on Vine, Periscope (@HowToBeADad) and Instagram lately. Facebook was fun and then someone decided you shouldn’t be able to see all of our posts. Twitter is getting a little muddy, and they can’t even decide on a CEO. Google+ might or might not be going away. So that […]

“Monkey Bars” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

They cautiously study and probe some new strange thing. A ladybug marches across a branch with giant, observing eyes glued to it. They watch some unfamiliar activity from the sidelines. A mob of other kids is sized up with sideways glances as they run around randomly with a ball. Watching your kid, as they push […]

We Stopped Dreaming About Tomorrow

Posted by on August 5th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I was very mediocre at science growing up. I had the odd chemistry set. I enjoyed physics, more than almost any other field. I was just not a great junior scientist. But I had great respect for the endeavor. I wanted to know the answers to life’s questions. It seemed as though a combination of […]

“Cat” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

I’m not sure if this is a “what, just me?” thing, but this video seems to indicate that it’s possible that it’s not just me. You see, I’m talking about that moment in parenting when your kid asks you about something when you’re dead… For me, the first time was being asked by my son […]

Video of a 10 lbs Baby Being Born IN A MOVING CAR!

Posted by on July 23rd, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

This… is absolutely incredible. It’s like The Fast And The Furious meets She’s Having a Baby. Watch this pregnant mother go from 0-to-Newborn in less than two minutes (seen at 2:14). Don’t worry. It’s not gross, it doesn’t show anything indecent, and aside from some much-understood shouting on the part of the (not for long) […]

“FORE” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 21st, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Teaching young kids something… anything really, can be the ultimate test of anyone’s patience. I’m surprised that kindergarten and preschool teachers don’t have nervous breakdowns annually. Despite the stress and frustration and occasional physical danger, the moment is priceless you see that cute, clumsy little pupil do it correctly (finally!) and then triumphantly squeal their […]

Hug Life For Real

Posted by on July 17th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Sometimes something so impossibly cute comes across your internet desk (that’s not a thing) that your brain can’t even handle it. I don’t even want to use words or sentences to describe what you’re about to see. It’s too much. It’s just… HUG LIFE. But I will say that you will be starting your weekend […]

“Friends” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

The art of BFF-ery can be complicated at any age, and it can be like pinwheels and air-horns and flamethrowers inside when you’re a little kid. This is the sweetest look at the breakdown of friendship you’ll ever see, from the eyes of a 4-year-old girl, played by a fully-grown man. Also? If anyone comments […]

“13 and a Half” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 7th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Since anything can exist or happen when you’re pretending, it requires some good thought. You need to know what you’re doing. For instance, do you know how old you need to be to qualify as a pretend princess? Or the exact correct way to enter a pretend castle? You see? Tough stuff. Honestly, it really […]

Family Dinner – Fowl Language Comics

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

Fowl Language Comics   I really don’t understand this whole “raising children” thing. I use the “air quotes” because it feels like my version of parenting is false and just wrong. My older son is a VERY picky eater and the subject of fruits and vegetables is so contentious that I am almost at the […]
