Facebook FOR TODDLERS

Posted by on September 8th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, SNAPSHOTS

This is amazing. I’ve been following Rob Fee on Twitter (@robfee) for a couple of years without knowing much more than his wit consistently makes me piss-laugh or blows my mind. Then I came across this majesty of his.   Ugh. If I didn’t love his humor so much, I’d hate him for being so […]

New More Relatable Superheroes

Posted by on September 4th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

Some popular superheroes are incredibly old if you think about it. Batman and Superman were created in the late ’30s, making them adults for about 75 years now. Super old. What would some new, more relatable super characters be, though? If they arose from the smartphone radiation of today’s plugged-in, socially-connected culture? Let’s imagine some… […]

Tough Little Guy

Posted by on August 21st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, SNAPSHOTS

Since I was a kid I had a problem with the concept of “being tough.” I’m sure some meathead out there will explain to me this is because I was a total wuss and then crush a beer can on his forehead. As I grew up though, my understanding of “toughness” slowly evolved from the […]

TODDLER BINGO! Because Parents Deserve to Win Something

Posted by on August 19th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

The thing about playing Bingo is that you’re going to go through an epic crap ton of numbers before anyone hits five in a row. The same is true for Toddler Bingo. Parents will experience a vast array of toddlerisms before they hit the jackpot. Refusing to eat something, wanting to eat things they shouldn’t, […]

Artist Grows Up and Recreates His Own Drawings 2 Decades Later

Posted by on August 15th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

For most kids, drawings turn out a bit abstract… Heck! I can call them crappy here since it’s just us adults, right? We’ll soften the word and call them “crapstract” art. They’re adorable, sure, but raise your hand if your kid has ever handed over a picture they drew for you, that you had absolutely […]

Parent Pro Tip: Reacting

Posted by on August 7th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Some people fail to realize that when they’re dealing with a kid, they’re dealing with an attention-addicted little human who’s most prized dealers of attention are adults. For a kid, a simple chuckle from Mom and Dad can be like an epic slow clap in a packed stadium. However, young kids don’t quite grasp the […]

The Swiss Parenting Tool

Posted by on August 5th, 2014, under EQUIPMENT, INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Be prepared is the Boy Scouts’ motto. And, though this applies well to parenting, the Boy Scout handbook doesn’t have a lot to say about having a baby, but, like the wilds of Nature, when the test of your survival fitness begins, Parenthood doesn’t care how prepared you are. Nature doesn’t forgive you for not […]

Daddy Vader Says… Rank Side of the Force

Posted by on July 25th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes your baby or child does things that impress you beyond the normal “wow, he squeezed my finger” or “holy crap, she ate the whole thing!” Stuff that’s extraordinary. These achievements can even get you thinking they’re prodigies at something, or what they’ve done is somehow foreshadowing of some specific future for them, some destiny. […]

The Wanted

Posted by on July 24th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Finn, this weekend after I put you on a timeout you said to me, “You don’t want me anymore?” If I never hear those words again in my life it will be too soon. We talked about why you thought that, what it means to be an older brother and then I asked you a […]
