Posted by on December 31st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, SNAPSHOTS

Anyone with kids above a certain speaking age has had their eyebrows raised into orbit when their kid starts saying… monumentally strange things. They can be weird, razor honest, sweet, embarrassing, wise, and often also hilarious. Martin Bruckner, art director and father of a 3-year-old daughter named Harper, decided to take some of these strange […]

The Magic 8-Ball of Parenting

Posted by on December 30th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

On a daily basis, I wonder if I am doing the right thing. Am I trying hard enough? Am I listening intently enough? Am I guiding while correcting when necessary? Am I learning fast enough at this parenting thing that I can stay a few steps ahead of my own children? It feels like the […]

My Wife Just Texted… #193

Posted by on December 29th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

My wife and I share a passion for sales. We don’t claim to be pros, we’re more like face-painted and foam-finger wielding fans. No, our pillows aren’t stuffed with expired coupons, our use of eBay isn’t like a government intelligence agency, and we’re not thrift shop tag-poppin’ junkies (yet), but if someone puts a BIG […]

Posted by on December 26th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

Can you hear that? The new year is calling our names. He’s off in the distance, waiting for someone to answer. Like a child, he stumbles toward us as he takes his first steps. We don’t know whether to protect this young thing from itself or let him fall. Luckily, he will make his way […]

Posted by on December 24th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

I’ve written about the majesty and major PAIN IN THE ASS-NESS of Santa Claus photos before. When I decided to display these lovely moments in time on this little blog, people claimed I was harming my son. Remember that? This is just one stone thrown my direction.

JINGLEBOOK – The Social Network for Christmas

Posted by on December 23rd, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Christmas and Facebook are each forces to be reckoned with, but added together? That’s something you shouldn’t reckon with a ten foot pole probably.* * the North Pole is not ten feet long and also does not actually physically exist. It’s an abstract concept given to a general geographical location.   But seriously (except not […]

Dad Uses His Kid as a Human Drum Machine (VIDEO)

Posted by on December 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If rhythm was a language, it’s clear I’d have both a stutter and Tourette’s. I can’t tap out the simplest beat on my steering wheel, let alone my kids. So, this video is super specially especially amazing to me. It’s not okay to beat your kid… unless you’re harmlessly dropping mad beats like this dad. […]

Robots Will Want Babies Too

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

Let’s face it. Science fiction has done a pretty interstellar job of predicting the future. Computers, smartphones, lasers, 3D printing, space travel, velcro, all fortune-told by sci-fi long long ago in a galaxy, well… right here.
