The Valentine’s Day Curse

Posted by on February 13th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I have complicated feelings about Valentine’s Day and kids. I don’t want to be a curmudgeon but I feel like it’s bit strange to celebrate. First, it’s an invented moment every year that seems to benefit card companies and flower cartels more than anyone. Second, people without partners or close friends can feel pretty bummed […]

Posted by on February 10th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Parenting has a lot of funny moments to it, and even the not-so-funny moments can be made fun of pretty damn majestically. There are a truck ton of hilarious kid-owners out there shouting their jokes from the social media rooftops as humorous text, picture of video memes. I have the pleasure of knowing a bunch […]

I partnered with Plum Organics to bring you this funny, honest look at the realities of parental romance.   There’s really only one thing that changes dramatically when you have a baby: EVERYTHING.

The Side Effects Of Childhood: Embarrassment

Posted by on February 3rd, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

My childhood is littered with moments that I look back on with fondness and sympathy. Yes, I wore glasses, braces, and sweatpants at the same time. Or as I call it, “The Trifecta of Nerd Lifeforce.” My sons, now, carry on this tradition of doing and saying things they will regret one day. But God […]

Not Throwing Away Our Shot

Posted by on February 1st, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

A photo posted by Charlie Capen (@charliecapen) on Jan 29, 2017 at 10:06am PST My son fumbled through rap verses of “My Shot” from the musical Hamilton a couple nights ago. He just saw the play in NYC. Orchestra section. You can hear the jealousy in my voice, right? Well, he’s showing us how young, […]

Dad Jokes Hall of Shame – Visual Edition

Posted by on January 27th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

In addition to the vast number of spoken or written dad jokes, there are also some delightful visual puns to make us to burst out in laughter, or sounds resembling groaning or whimpering. They say “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but who wants to listen to all that blah blah blah when 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 […]

History’s Freakiest Baby Products

Posted by on January 19th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes we parents will come across ads or informercials for baby and kid-related products that seem silly or kinda useless. If we look back in time, though, when “men were men and women were women,” and both apparently didn’t seem overly concerned with infant or child safety, we can behold some very weird or outstandingly […]

Love Can Be… (8 Parenting Comics)

Posted by on January 11th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

There’s that famous, beautifully and savagely true quote about how children are like your heart being outside of your body. They get hurt and you gasp as if in pain. They make an achievement and you’re filled with pride. They’re brutally honest and, well… you still love them, even though your smile might now be […]

“ME TOO” – Scrabble Scribble #19

Posted by on January 5th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Kids can be brutally independent. They don’t like this awesome thing. They love that awful thing. They’re their own person, before we and the world ever have a chance to imply what they should be. Then, there’s this age when they become aware of things outside of themselves. They’ve always loved us, their parents, but […]
