“Sleeping” : Convos With My 5-Year-Old

Posted by on February 2nd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

The first thing that’s funny about this video is that it’s title: “Sleeping.” HAH! Ugh. The rest is pretty damned funny, too. It’s not funny when you’re experience a terrible night’s sleep because the kids have invaded your bed, but it’s funny to watch the misery unfold with two kids being played by grown men. […]

“Karate” : Convos With My 5-Year-Old

Posted by on December 4th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

Three things about kids that can be wildly unpredictable: 1) Their movements 2) Their thoughts 3) Their emotions So, when it comes to something like Karate, you can expect to see some pretty crazy moves and techniques, you’re likely to have some highly amusing conversations, and there’s a good chance Karate will become Cry-até. Haha! […]

“Public Bathroom” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on November 10th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

Some of the things we experience in public restrooms with our kids are best blacked out of our memories. Taking them to go “potty” is rough enough at home, but a trip to a public restroom is like napalm on a train wreck. This video by Matt and David (featuring Matt’s wife, Leila) hilariously demonstrates […]

“SHARK!” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on August 28th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

Why watch Jaws or Sharknado when you can have a shark panic attack playing with your kid? I love how he immediately jumps into pretend mode. Those kids do train us well. The awesome visual effects were done by YouTuber, Daniel Hashimoto (Action Movie Kid). Don’t worry no sharks or little girls (or full-grown men […]

“Monkey Bars” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on August 6th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

They cautiously study and probe some new strange thing. A ladybug marches across a branch with giant, observing eyes glued to it. They watch some unfamiliar activity from the sidelines. A mob of other kids is sized up with sideways glances as they run around randomly with a ball. Watching your kid, as they push […]

“Cat” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 29th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’m not sure if this is a “what, just me?” thing, but this video seems to indicate that it’s possible that it’s not just me. You see, I’m talking about that moment in parenting when your kid asks you about something when you’re dead… For me, the first time was being asked by my son […]

“FORE” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 21st, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Teaching young kids something… anything really, can be the ultimate test of anyone’s patience. I’m surprised that kindergarten and preschool teachers don’t have nervous breakdowns annually. Despite the stress and frustration and occasional physical danger, the moment is priceless you see that cute, clumsy little pupil do it correctly (finally!) and then triumphantly squeal their […]

“Friends” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 15th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

The art of BFF-ery can be complicated at any age, and it can be like pinwheels and air-horns and flamethrowers inside when you’re a little kid. This is the sweetest look at the breakdown of friendship you’ll ever see, from the eyes of a 4-year-old girl, played by a fully-grown man. Also? If anyone comments […]

“13 and a Half” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on July 7th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Since anything can exist or happen when you’re pretending, it requires some good thought. You need to know what you’re doing. For instance, do you know how old you need to be to qualify as a pretend princess? Or the exact correct way to enter a pretend castle? You see? Tough stuff. Honestly, it really […]

“Of Bikes and Ants” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on June 25th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Everything about death is always hard, including explaining what it is. It seems particularly hard because kids are so innocent, naive and positively bursting at the seems with alive-ness. They’re just starting out life, learning how to pedal and steer their little bodies and bikes. Of course, it’s necessary that they understand the concept, but […]
