Dads Just Gotta Dad

Posted by on April 20th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Sure, we don’t get a lot of sleep as parents. But did you know the fun doesn’t stop when we actually get to sleep? That’s right. The fun never ends when you have kids because even when you’re sleeping, there’s a solid chance you’ll be dreaming about your kids or having nightmares about parenthood. It’s […]

Welcome to Elmo Nightmares

Posted by on April 18th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

So, on the list of things I really, really wanted to see in my lifetime, this is not one of them. I have this sneaking suspicion I will be dreaming (nightmaring) over this for a few days. Kill it with fire? Sure. Burn the whole house down? Why not. But there is no material known […]

Rage Against The Machine on Kids Toys!

Posted by on April 12th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

If you a person of a certain age (and you likely are because you probably have kids if you’re reading my stupid words), you’re likely a fan of Rage Against The Machine. RATM personified the anti-establishment feeling of a decade and more. But as we got older, lots of us took up other endeavors or […]

Learning the Different Differences of People

Posted by on April 5th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

There isn’t just one single point that every parent experiences with their kid learning about the difference of other people. Because they’re all different, in usual and in unique ways, you’ll run into several experiences. Little ones don’t tend to get too caught up in the abstract differences of character and personality, so they tend […]

Waste of Time: DIY Cardboard Coin Sorter

Posted by on March 31st, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Under the heading of “things I want to do to keep my kids entertained on their vacations,” comes this very inventive cardboard contraption. Apparently, all you need is a cutting knife and glue. For real, MacGyver? That’s it? Well, okay. Count me in then. Right after I build a bed, a kitchen and a garage […]

Little Girl + Robot = LOVE

Posted by on March 29th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

These are dark, trying times. But there are beams of that shine through the darkness. Like rad flashlights in a 1980s movie directed by Spielberg. These columns of photons help us see the way forward. This video is one of the beams of light. This little girl loves this water heater that she thinks is […]

The Best of Sleepy Eating

Posted by on March 23rd, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

The other day I posted this video of my son eating French fries while falling asleep… A post shared by Charlie Capen (@charliecapen) on Mar 21, 2017 at 7:38pm PDT I have probably watched at least 50 videos of babies and toddlers falling asleep while eating. It’s just the best. They probably remind me of […]

Posted by on March 22nd, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Parenting isn’t a competition. Well. It shouldn’t be. But, even for parents who work together perfectly, your heart can kind of feel like it got the silver medal and lost a little in some moments. You ask if they want you to read them a story and they say, “I wan’ Mommy to wead to […]
