Moms Get A Different Kind Of Makeover

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

So, listen. I’ve posted about feeling frumpy and ugly before. Becoming a parent can wreak havoc on your self-confidence. The sleep-deprivation and physical demands of pregnancy let alone what happens when they arrive, well, they’re no joke. So, I have a tendency to get a little judge-y and snarky about young people now. It’s like […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]

My Wife Just Said… #298

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

Both of our kids have had hair that made Tarzan looks like a corporate officer. For some reason, my wife just hated cutting their hair. I can’t blame her because she made two cute, little hippies but there was a varying amount of confusion about them because of their hair. Sure, we joke about man […]

A Toddler’s Guide to Being a Helpful Passenger

Posted by , under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Driving with kids can be rough. Quite often “rough” like wearing a potato sack for underwear on a 10 mile marathon. They really do make it interesting at any age. When they’re little bundles of burps, it can be surprise diaper blowouts, random screaming and begging for you to hand them this, that and everything. […]

The Best Carrie Fisher Interview

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

I didn’t really know what to post today. I’m pretty stunned by the news that Carrie Fisher has passed away despite early reports of her improvement. In certain respects, I shouldn’t necessarily be entirely surprised. She liked to joke around a lot about her health, her addictions, the pitfalls she’d faced — and it just […]

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

Our 7-year-old son has been hopped up on the holiday spirit for weeks now. Being at home, off schedule with family visiting and generally consuming above normal levels sugared goods have all certainly contributed to his state of heightened festivity.

I do enjoy the holidays so very much. But there comes a time when people need to ease up on the throttle just a bit. The holiday spirit is a little overwhelming, honestly. So many people to think of and consumerism. Finding joy is important but it has be an authentic experience that’s self-determined, not […]

This is amaaaaaazing. Even if you’re not a stark raving Star Wars fan like me, you’ll still appreciate a lot of the relatabale moments shown here, when grandparents look after their grandkid. Sure, regular grandparents might not be spoiling your kid quite like Santa Vader, and when they break your rules, it’s necessarily your “no […]
