Stuff You Shouldn’t Show Kids

Posted by on April 29th, 2011, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

This world is a scary place… mainly because of Reality TV and celebri-spawn, but this past week marked a new level of scare-larious stuff that we felt an unnecessary urge to show you. Some of this could be considered KSFW (Kinda Safe For Work), but I wouldn’t push it. We here at “How To Be […]

Easter Bunny: Not A Voracious Child-Gobbling Monster

Posted by on April 28th, 2011, under NOTEBOOK

Here’s a quick recap of our Easter experience, before the Internet’s ruthlessly short attention span makes it irrelevant and uninteresting. My father-in-law made reservations at a nice restaurant.

Dude To Dad: A Birth Story, Part I

Posted by on April 25th, 2011, under NOTEBOOK

I read (or rather my wife reads to me) a mammoth number of birth stories from “mom blogs”. I’ll admit it: I love hearing about how babies are born. I said “born” not “conceived” you sick, sick individual. Each story I read is so cathartic and sometimes gross. But after I’ve read them, I’m left […]

Something Weird This Way Hops

Posted by on April 22nd, 2011, under NOTEBOOK

I love Easter. I remember the delight of waking up to that castle of wicker and crimped plastic grass, surrounded in its cellophane force field, protecting its treasure trove of candy and grocery-store-grade toys. But, having kids gives you perspective. What was once a bright-eyed bunny made of chocolate can start to look creepy and […]
