This is our video section. One of us, who shall remain nameless, still has VHS tapes lying around. They should be teased. In the meantime, watch our homemade videos in this section.

An Out Of This World Sleeper

Posted by on May 17th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Even Hal 9000 could tell you that kids don’t sleep “like babies.” Sleeping like a baby is combination of gymnastics, wrestling, opera singing and jailbird rattling of the bars. This kid in particular is a prime example of what we’ve dealt with in our own house. Sometimes we would turn on the monitor to witness […]

Posted by on May 13th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Have you ever dealt with a child who misunderstood what you telling them, and couldn’t convince them that they’d misheard you? This is basically the cutest example of it I’ve ever seen. Sidebar: I have to say kids with accents are the cutest ever. Maybe it’s because I’m used to hearing my sons with their […]

Posted by on May 12th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Apparently someone forgot to clue this kid in on the fact that it’s not only NOT against the law for parents to embarrass their kids, that it basically is some kind of law of the universe for them to. It’s this little guy’s first day of school, though, so he’s mortified at the mere thought […]

5 Incredible Star Wars Mashups That Will Make You Feel the Force

Posted by on May 11th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

It’s no freaking secret that we love Star Wars. There’s something about the storytelling and universe underlying the visual spectacle of it all that makes us feel like whole universes exist beyond our own, and there could be another layer of magic within us. So, when we see amazing SW stuff that lights up the […]

6yo’s EMOTIONAL First-Time Reaction to Return of the Jedi (Video)

Posted by on May 4th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

The love for Luke Skywalker is STRONG with this one! We definitely underestimated the power of his love, and the impact Return of the Jedi would have on him. We were completely taken by surprise by his emotional reaction at the end. (Don’t judge: my wife couldn’t find the remote to pause it!) It was […]

Why Do We Even Celebrate Mother’s Day?

Posted by on May 3rd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

So, the other day Buzzfeed emailed me and asked if I’d be in a video for them. They told me that I’d be getting drunk and talking about dad stuff. Which is new for me, obviously. So, I asked a more veteran dad, The Daddy Complex, to come with me and talk fatherhood. Nothing could’ve […]

How Did Parents Let This LEGO Train Track Happen?

Posted by on April 27th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My house is a constant mess of toys. Sure, I may have indulged my sons once or twice with my own need for childhood knickknacks, but I love playing with them. My boys, I mean. And the toys. Both. Anyway. Sometimes, I get fed up and wish the toys could all disappear. All of them. […]

The Birth of Seth Meyers, Dad

Posted by on April 11th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Hearing birth stories is always a treat. They can be harrowing experiences or hilarious 80s-movie style hijinks, but more often than not they’re from Mom’s point of view. And that’s totally understandable. Dads are support systems for what can only be described as one of the traumatic, intense, life-altering events a person can go through. […]

The Turkey Whisperer

Posted by on April 5th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

My kids have an unrelenting desire to see, handle and chat with animals. Call it an obsession or just veterinarians in training, these kids have been brainwashed by talking animals to the point that they think they have some kind of telepathic link to the animal kingdom. They believe it so much, I almost believe […]
