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? […]

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark (Amazing Video)

Posted by on March 13th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

A doll, stuffed animal or action figure, or even a bug, a stick, a booger, anything can become a companion or character for the little make-believe masters. Watch this amazing video and try not to drool or […]

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 […]

“Bed Time” part 2 : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

Telling a made-up story to a little supposed-to-be-asleeper can turn into a serious collaborative effort. Make Believe is a top skill on their résumé, so it’s no surprise when they make a creative power play in a storytelling production. Matt and David go next-level on this follow-up installment of Bed Time (Part 1) with some […]

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 […]
