Posted by on May 25th, 2017, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

We’ve all seen ads or stores selling baby-related products that had us tilting our head and muttering, “Really???” Sometimes it’s because they seem useless and stupid, or downright unsafe. It’s hard to believe sometimes, but they’re actually out there, for someone with money in their pocket and sh*t for brains, apparently. How ’bout, we take […]

The Care Baes: A Childhood-Ruining Remake

Posted by on May 11th, 2017, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Modernized classics tend to be pretty awful. But like, ugly awful. There, I said it.

Parenterms: “Calculatte”

Posted by on January 25th, 2017, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

We’ve all done that late-night math to figure out how much sleep we’d get if we fell asleep right that second. Sadly for parents, this assumes you’ll sleep through until your alarm goes off. Hahahahahah! Ugh. It’s hard to figure out the sleep you’ll get when you have a living alarm clock with no snooze […]

Driving with kids can be rough. Quite often “rough” like wearing a potato sack for underwear on a 10 mile marathon. They really do make it interesting at any age.

Posted by on October 25th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

However grateful and well-mannered they are, it’s impossible for trick-or-treaters to avoid casting some judgement on the treat-giver-outers they encounter. You see, parents don’t often let kids eat the entire bag in one […]
