The Sweetest Thing You’ll See Today Is a Spider

Posted by on February 5th, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

The combination of adorable dialog from a little kid and super cute 3D animation that should be the envy of Pixar, is priceless. You may have seen one of these under-a-minute videos because they’ve gone pretty flippin’ viral. How viral? The first video is only months old and the YouTube channel has 600,000 followers. But […]

Son’s Excited 1st-Time Reaction to STAR WARS The Force Awakens

Posted by on December 12th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Two years ago, when he was six, my son and I watched STAR WARS: A New Hope for his first time. He was ridiculously adorable and hilarious and he LOVED it. The internet also loved the reaction video, so I did one for Empire and Jedi as well. We waited way too long to watch […]

Sesame Street Does a Priceless Parody of STRANGER THINGS!

Posted by on November 29th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Just when you thought the people who make Sesame Street couldn’t be any cooler, the creative geniuses come up with a parody of all things the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. The pairing of their own kid-centric show with a show that, despite having child actors, is very much… not kid-centric, is pretty amazing. Sharing […]

When I have to travel for work, I miss my family. No matter how busy I am, something just doesn’t feel right, constantly. Like your heart is wearing a pair of underwear backward.

Posted by on September 1st, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

It’s been a very long time since I changed a diaper, but I clearly remember my first diaper change ever, and the first diaper change after we switched to solid foods. EVERY parent will remember this. Even if it’s not a picture-pefect stomach-churning flashback, we can all at least vaguely remember how shockingly horrible it […]

Drama, It’s What’s for Dinner (Video Compilation)

Posted by on July 28th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

I can’t personally remember being an absolute douchecanoe about food when I was a kid. Then I thought this might be some kind of self-imposed amnesia our bodies perform, because if they didn’t, we might not procreate as a species if we had crystal clear memories of the little horrors we were. So, I asked […]

Serious Subjects Can Get Seriously Silly with Kids

Posted by on July 18th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

When you tackle a subject with your kid that’s one of the more life-lessonie topics, it can be pretty dang interesting. You start to find out what they have -100 clues about, and what they’ve picked up from wherever. But, like a lollipop that rolled under the couch, sometimes some pretty unusual stuff sticks to […]

Posted by on July 4th, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

I remember being astounded by fireworks as a little kid. I love them, but… well, it wasn’t really a love-hate relationship, it was more of love-terror thing. Now that I’m all grown up with three kids that are well past toddlerhood, I’ve had the chance to see the evolution of their awed reactions as they […]
