Posted by on September 24th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Simply titled “Tonight You Belong to Me (Cover) – Me and my 4 y.o.” and with ukulele in hand, this is quite simply my favorite rendition of this song. It really doesn’t get any better than this… You gotta watch out for the fireworks. You never know when they’ll hit. Even in the middle of […]

Whipped Cream Dragons!

Posted by on September 18th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

WARNING: There are no dragons in this video. But there is activity that you might not want to try at home… These kids are trying liquid nitrogen-frozen whipped cream and it makes them look like they’re dragons. Apparently, liquid nitrogen burns off in the heat of your mouth giving you the appearance of smokey nostrils. […]

Tooth Fairy Transport?!

Posted by on September 16th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Some dads have talents that make them way cooler than the rest of us. For example, I can be really funny at inappropriate times which leads to another talent of getting my ass kicked. I’m pretty much an Olympian of being dumb like that. But for this dad, there is something he has, as both […]

Kid Said Bowner!

Posted by on September 2nd, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’ve heard some doozies in my day, but this one takes the cake… This notable YouTuber put up a video with his son titled “3 year old BONER…Hilarious!!!” and I wonder how staged it was. Oh, kids. They do say some amazing things, but this one is on the verge though this video is basically […]

You are diving into an abyss when you decide to have a child. No matter how prepared or learned you are, parenting can be a great equalizer. Parenting advice can only get you so far I think this video of a bunch of Norwegian dudes pranking a groom-to-be at his bachelor party sums it up […]

Do Right By My Daughter Insurance

Posted by on July 12th, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

If I had a daughter, there would be certain “demonstrations” of prowess, cunning and fortitude on my part. Potential suitors would come to understand that she is an individual first, a daughter second and a partner third. Items two and three might get confused for others, at times, but never for me.

The Reaction We All Want

Posted by on March 21st, 2013, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Going back to work has been really strange for me. I wrote about that here for Buzzfeed last week. I come home around 7-9pm each night, which, I know, is normal for most of us. But for me, having been around SO much… it’s a whole different deal. I’m dog tired. I’m overwhelmed. Life has […]
