“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 […]

Posted by on March 5th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Telling a made-up story to a little supposed-to-be-asleeper can turn into a serious collaborative effort. Make Believe is a top skill on their résumé, so it’s no surprise when they make a creative power play in a storytelling production. Matt and David go next-level on this follow-up installment of Bed Time (Part 1) with some […]

“Shopping” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Every parent that takes their youngling out and about, no matter the age, has probably suffered from Post Tantrum Stress Disorder. You would have bet a Bugatti that they weren’t anywhere near the corner of hungry and tired. You totally thought that nap did the trick. You almost couldn’t believe the plate wasn’t part of […]

“Swimming” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

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

If you’ve known how to swim for a long while it can be hard to remember what it was like when you first learned. For a little kid, even fully armored up like the Stay Puf’t Marshmallow Man with weird-feeling floaties, the giant bathtub that a pool is can be ominous. Being told that they’re […]

“Zebras” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Playing with a little kid can turn into a wild goose chase, or zebra chase as the case may be. When searching, parent’s have pretty poor vision when it comes to being able to see where the fictional characters of a toddler mind may be, so you’re completely reliant on them as your guide in […]

“Car Pee Diem” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on December 12th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

The care and management of miniature humans is a tricky kind of magic to master, especially when it comes to their bathroom habits (or entire lack of any habit whatsoever). Car trips can be the ultimate test of one’s parental wizardry, since you’re traveling away from home, in foreign territory, and you’ve got to find […]
