Posted by on May 24th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

I’m not raining on the kids’ birthday cake candle parade at all (I love it), but let’s take a closer look at this tradition. It’s kind of strange, if you think about it. Toddlers/kids + sugar + fire?

28 Baby Photoshoots Gone Horriblariously Wrong (GROSS WARNING)

Posted by on May 10th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Professional photoshoots of newborns or babies can give parents some stellar shots, but predicting the weather is more accurate than predicting the “call of Nature” for babies, even if they just went.

Kidcentricities (5 Quirkrazy Comics)

Posted by on May 6th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

The way to truly understand your kids is to realize that they are insane. Things just become so much clearer once you let that soak in deep, like a full sippy cup emptied into a box of tampons to see if they would swell into dinosaurs, or just because. Parenting makes so much more sense […]

Operation: Keep the Kids Alive (5 Comics)

Posted by on April 14th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Posted by on April 12th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

This kind of “what people think” internet joke showcases the misconceptions about a type of person or job from the various clichéd perspectives of others.
