50 Ways to Nudge Your Lover (Part 4 of 5)

Posted by on April 26th, 2012, under NOTEBOOK

  WARNING: I’m back at it again. People still want to have sex and that’s not my fault. Kids wake up or the daily grind gets in the way. Don’t be mad at me because I’m offering sex advice or because I’m dumb. I had a school desk dropped on my head when I was […]

The Food Groups According to Kids

Posted by on April 25th, 2012, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

[ click the images to enlarge ]   Children look at food and nutrition differently than adults do. Sometimes they don’t even look at it, they just breath it in without even chewing.

Product Plight

Posted by on April 24th, 2012, under NOTEBOOK

Crap. Stuff. Things… Product. My boy Finn, a year ago during his pleasingly plump phase. We digest tons of marketing and advertising whole, like hankering hot dog eating contestants. Brands sell it all: how scary babies are to handle, how deadly life can be trekking outside with your kids and how VITAL they are to […]

Solo Dadding

Posted by on April 20th, 2012, under NOTEBOOK

Half of my ass slips off the fake, butt-worn leather of a bench. I’m almost sideways. Finn works my arm, yanking it from its socket. My other appendage is attached by way of my palm stuck to my face. With eyes half-closed, I think that I’d love for the Arabic music in this Lebanese restaurant […]

The Breast Milk Baby Doll (NSFW?)

Posted by on April 19th, 2012, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I love breastfeeding. I mean, not personally, but you know what I mean. Because I haven’t ever lactated or whatever. Personally. Anyway, the other day I found this kids’ doll called “The Breast Milk Baby.” Prepare for your mind to be blown, either minimally or maximally, depending on your personal parenting philosophy.

Sometimes parenthood has to roll up […]
