When A 3-Year-Old Knows More Than Most Adults

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

It’s no secret kids say and do the darnedest things. But sometimes they end up teaching us more than we could’ve imagined. This little girl knows more than I do about cars, at this point. I’m sure of it. I would pay many cookies if she could help figure out the leak under my car. […]

The Care Baes: A Childhood-Ruining Remake

Posted by , under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Modernized classics tend to be pretty awful. But like, ugly awful. There, I said it. It might be because we’re used to them a certain way, like knowing someone with a beard and them looking like a creepy failed clone experiment after they shave. Maybe we hate a remake because we’re old and set in […]

Local Zoo Markets Memes!

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

What happens when you combine internet memes with marketing a local zoo in Miami? This insanity below happens, that’s what. Imagine every meme or viral idea ever concocted on the internet becoming a 30-second tv commercial with zoo animals as far as the eye can see. I don’t even know where to start with this. […]

Caught in the iAct!

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

Kids break things. It’s in their DNA. Okay, maybe it isn’t, but there’s a lot of klutziness between the time their little-human DNA becomes big-human DNA. We’ve all done it, as kids ourselves, and I think it’s fairly safe to say that every parent has experienced with their own kid. Committing some “crime” or accident, […]

My Wife Just Said… #315

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

We are trying literally everything to potty train my three-year-old. We’ve heard from many other parents on the subject about their mysterious black magic ways of getting their kids to evacuate their bowels into a water whirlpool pot. Alas, my older son has started weighing in on the subject (as quoted above). I’m not sure […]

13 Weird and Dark Family Comics

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

Um. Okay. So some of these are pretty damned weird. This post isn’t a casual cruise through a pleasant neighborhood, it’s gonna do some donuts and peel out on the road less travelled. So, buckle up, buttercup! As is my standard though, these are all safe-for-work and don’t get really raunchy or offensive or political […]

Here’s something you definitely haven’t heard today: MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! Well, that and this cover of Smashmouth’s hit song “All Star” as sung by our favorite Star Wars characters.

Cheers!   We all want to protect our kids’ innocence as long as possible. On one hand, we’re there to protect them; on the other hand, we’re supposed […]

Jimmy Kimmel Is All Of Us

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

A parent’s worst nightmare can be accurately summarized as: a horrible fate befalling their children. No matter who you are, what your station in life or where you live, these moments change you. A smart, attentive nurse spotted an issue with Jimmy Kimmel’s newborn son and his account of this moment is so profoundly fatherhood, […]

My Wife Just Said… #314

Posted by , under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

It’s not that I’m completely incapable of taking care of myself. It’s that I’m mostly incapable of it. Probably. My wife and I have our own particular setup. Every couple develops a system and routines in their marriage and in parenthood, whether all duties are shared or divided up. Whatever works. Hopefully. I’d like to […]
