#Lairing My Boys’ Bedrooms

Posted by on December 11th, 2013, under EQUIPMENT, NOTEBOOK

We were so unprepared before Finn’s birth. His room was in disarray and we were in the middle of packing the hospital bag when vaj-agra falls happened. In less than fours hours, we had a baby boy in our arms. This time I wanted to buy all of the things, not just to be ready […]

Snowman Building by Child Age

Posted by on December 2nd, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Babies are really terrible at making stuff. Unless it’s poop or pee, or making us smile and never sleep. So their first snowmen will require quite a bit of parental assembly. Some people wonder why parents do this for their babies (birthdays and snowmen and such), hinting that it’s all really just for the parents. […]

So, we made a simple diagram as a joke. Though we meant it in good fun, it is now obvious to us the baby zombie apocalypse is upon us… THEY’RE COMING FOR YOU, BARBARA. THEY ARE COMING FOR ALL OF US. BEWARE! Happy Friday! – Follow us on Facebook. Facebook innoculates against Zombies attacks. Promise-ish. […]

Posted by on September 3rd, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

From the moment the pee on a pregnancy stick says yes, the gleam in his eye met the speck in her tummy, we start the process of wondering how big the little one actually is in there. Through all the weeks, months and trimesters. So, we find fetal size references that make a woman’s belly […]

Anatomy of a Sonogram

Posted by on August 16th, 2013, under SNAPSHOTS

When we found out my wife was pregnant the first time we were just so excited that the idea of gender didn’t immediately come to mind. Several weeks in, for some reason, we thought we were having a girl. That thought persisted for a while. The moment we saw Finn’s little peepee on the teevee, […]

Every Day There’s A Moment

Posted by on August 13th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’m crying. I don’t even entirely know why. Time is a formless substance, a vapor until we have children and then it condenses into the form of emotional precipitation.

The Fart Chart

Posted by on August 5th, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Everyone poops. Fact. But before they do, they fart. Anyways, like them or not, they’re here to stay. Well… hopefully not too long actually. You see, holding in your gas can be vital in some circumstances: first dates, once in a lifetime elevator pitches, second dates, epic sports moments, third dates, acceptance speeches, etc., but […]

2 Rubber Bands + 2 Babies = Giggles for Everyone

Posted by on August 1st, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It was one of those days. Really rough. So rough, my rough day graduated into rough tomorrow because it just wasn’t through with me yet. Fugh. “Yeah yeah, we all have those days.” Okay, I’ll stop whining and get to the point. I watched this video and it all seemed less sucky all of the […]

[ click the image to enlarge ] In space no one can hear you scream. But because we live on a planet with an atmosphere, you get to hear all of the screams. Lots and lots of them once you become a parent. All kinds, too! Your own, your kids’, your neighbors’, store clerks’… This […]
