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

Imagine asking a little kid a question and hearing a man’s voice answer you back. Well stop. We’ve got the power of the internet, you don’t need to imagine! I always had an unusually deep voice as a kid, but this is hilarious and weird. This dad took video conversations with his son and digitally […]

“Dreams” : Convos With My 2-Year-Old

Posted by on June 3rd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If you thought talking about dreams could get weird, try discussing them with a toddler. Dreams are a bit wacko by default, but just discussing normal, everyday things with kids can be difficult.

Posted by on May 15th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Having a discussion with your kid about the specifics of words can be priceless, but it’s also difficult. Especially when you’re supposed to be pretending you’re the student and they’re the teacher.

“Mix” : Convos With My 2-Year-Old

Posted by on May 9th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

All my sons have “cooked” for me and I totally did this with my mom, too. One of my creations had cat food in it. I think I got off lucky with the things I’ve been bullied with cuteness into tasting.

This 5-Year-Old Roars After Cancer

Posted by on May 8th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

One of my favorite mashups was done by an amazing artist who put Winnie the Pooh and Star Wars together. The result was amazing. Wookiee the Chew […]

Maximumble: Is this your punishment or mine?

Posted by on March 27th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

  This comic has me wondering if its creator, Chris Hallbeck, is pretty much a psychic or some kind of wise man. I know I’ve leveled privilege-removing threats at my kids and been mentally praying to myself that it works, because if it doesn’t… ugh. So much more work. It’s like a bluff almost. When […]
