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

Pull up a seat, boys and girls. You see, after you have kids, hell even before that, there’s a period of time where you may eat a bit more than you used to or is even reasonable. For me, I gained weight at every step while my wife was pregnant. Both times. But here we […]

Kidcentricities (5 Quirkrazy Comics)

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

The way to truly understand your kids is to realize that they are insane. Things just become so much clearer once you let that soak in deep, like a full sippy cup emptied into a box of tampons to see if they would swell into dinosaurs, or just because. Parenting makes so much more sense […]

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

So, the other day Buzzfeed emailed me and asked if I’d be in a video for them. They told me that I’d be getting drunk and talking about dad stuff. Which is new for me, obviously. So, I asked a more veteran dad, The Daddy Complex, to come with me and talk fatherhood. Nothing could’ve […]

My Wife Just PMSed… #263

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