Posted by on November 29th, 2011, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

It’s the holidays. Yay! We’ve all been double-fisting massive quantities of amazing food into our faces. Waistbands are beginning to groan in protest of the holiday splurging. Maybe some of us have nursed our guilt hangovers with super-protein-food-green-substance drinks, or spritzes of vinaigrette instead of avalanches of blue cheese dressing, it doesn’t matter. You get […]

Santa Photos for Pro Parents

Posted by on November 24th, 2011, under SNAPSHOTS

I took my son to his first Santa photo op as a toddler last year… Maybe my son is Jewish? ¡Fail-is Navidad! His very first experience as a tiny worm-monkey-baby doesn’t count because he wasn’t big enough to fight back. But this time, just as we arrived to perch him on Santa’s lap, the photo […]

Goodnight iPad

Posted by on November 18th, 2011, under VIDEOTAPE

Goodnight Moon. We’ve all read the book once if not 75,839,456,874,985 times. So, I don’t know whether to be tickled or terrified by this YouTube video.
