Parenterms: “Adorablewhelming”

Posted by on May 19th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Our kids can achieve levels of cuteness that, before becoming parents, we would never have believed even possible. It doesn’t need to be some viral YouTube video of a moment. It can simply be the most mundane thing our kid does that turns us into glowing emotional wrecks. A lump in our throat makes our […]

Sea Inside

Posted by on May 16th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

A post shared by Charlie Capen (@charliecapen) on May 12, 2017 at 4:47pm PDT Dear Boys, There’s an ancient Icelandic word I recently learned, “innsæi.” It has multiple meanings. It can mean “the sea within,” which pertains to the inner world we experience, ever-changing. It centers around that current of intuition inside all of us. […]

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. It might be because we’re used to them a certain way, like knowing someone with a beard and them looking like a creepy failed clone experiment after they shave. Maybe we hate a remake because we’re old and set in […]

13 Weird and Dark Family Comics

Posted by on May 5th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Um. Okay. So some of these are pretty damned weird. This post isn’t a casual cruise through a pleasant neighborhood, it’s gonna do some donuts and peel out on the road less travelled. So, buckle up, buttercup! As is my standard though, these are all safe-for-work and don’t get really raunchy or offensive or political […]

Toddler Cars: Beyond Fury Road

Posted by on April 27th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

I just recently rewatched the original Mad Max and was surprised by how well it survived the passage of time. I remember watching it as a kid and being struck by the sad desperation of a post-apocalyptic world, but, because I was kid, I was obviously way more struck by how totally flippin’ awesome it […]

Getting Older (7 Fowl Comics)

Posted by on April 25th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

We all get older, sure, but having kids seems to accelerate every aspect of the aging process. We hear popular music come on and look at our radio as if it has lost its mind. When we have kids, we cringe at our kids repeating the lyrics. We notice hairs growing in places no self-respecting […]

​Surviving Being a Passenger When Your Spouse Is Driving

Posted by on April 21st, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

​ Okay. Maybe they’re not terrible, crazy drivers (unlikely). Maybe it’s because we’re used to driving ourselves (probably not). Maybe your faith in their skill is shaky because they just hit their head on the fridge door or asked you where something was while they were holding it in their hand (now we’re talkin’). Whatever […]

Watches Food Network Once…

Posted by on April 19th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

It’s always been true that parents struggle with feeding their kid, at least in one way or another. We want them to eat healthy, sure, but once some of us realize what savagely picky food critics our kids can be, we occasionally downshift our standards, and just concentrating on getting them to eat. ANYTHING. But […]

Stay-At-Home Fatherhood Captured in Hilarious Sticky Notes

Posted by on April 11th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Most of us leave Post-In notes around for ourselves or for our partner in child rearing. As fulfilling as parenthood is, it sure can be devastating on ones wits and memory. But this post is about someone who went beyond written reminders plastered all over the house. Somewhere heartwarming, hilarious and occasionally off-color. Chris Illuminati […]

28 FAILS That’ll Make You Feel Like a Great Parent

Posted by on April 7th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Parenting automatically comes with a fair amount of self-doubt and second- or seventieth-guessing, but it’s made even worse when we see the never ending online parade of other parents’ manicured glamour shots and stories of parenting perfection. Guinness-World-Record worthy craft projects on Pinterest. Facebook posts of 4-year-olds writing cursive in another language. All of it […]
