Play Games… WITH PIZZA!

Posted by on July 18th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

  The DiGeniuses at DiGiorno® helped us bring you this post, but the ideas are purely the symptoms of my own hunger and insanity and are intended for entertainment purposes only. Please operate pizza responsibly!   It’s generally agreed that kids shouldn’t play with their food. This probably comes from the fact that kids’ hands […]

My Kid Just Said… #51

Posted by on July 16th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“I gonna lay off food for a while.” -Lucas (2014, 5 years old)   Hearing this from my 5-year-old beanpole of a son was a definite “Wait what!?” moment. You see, saying “going to” implies that one isn’t already doing it. Since birth.   – Previous My Kid Just Said What a kid would do […]

Alternative Diets for Parents

Posted by on July 3rd, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

The biggest problem with food is that it’s delicious and available. So, wouldn’t the overarching concept behind an effective diet be to reduce the amount of food available or to suppress the desire for it, or simply remove its deliciousness? Maybe not, but whatever, right?! If you choose the Kid-Made Diet, you’ll have no problem […]

My Wife Just Texted… #163

Sometimes my wife, Lizzie, knows just what to say to me. Even when she doesn’t know it. They say “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but some ways of getting there are much faster than others. PIZZAAAAAA!!! – Previous “My Wife Just Said…” Kid faces only a mother could love. Follow […]

Parenterms: “Fridgetful”

Posted by on May 13th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Parents know that they can often have memory issues, even if they can’t remember exactly how they even know this… uh… what was I saying? Something something… memory issues then… uh… whatever. Must not have been important. Sure, in addition to the fridge, there are tons of other “why the heck did I come here” […]

“Mix” : Convos With My 2-Year-Old

Posted by on May 9th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

All my sons have “cooked” for me and I totally did this with my mom, too. One of my creations had cat food in it. I think I got off lucky with the things I’ve been bullied with cuteness into tasting.

“Garwic smewws wike skunk and poop.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)  I love garlic, but I can understand that it’s a bit showy as far as smells go. The funny thing about my son’s description is that I had to wonder for a sec whether this meant he didn’t like the smell of garlic. Some […]

My Wife Just Texted… #147

Posted by on February 10th, 2014, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Sometimes emoticons fail to convey the right message at first; even the more graphical, fancy-schmancy emojis can get lost in trans-emoticons-lation. When it comes down to it though, some fails are so hilarious they’re wins. I can’t judge, though. I’ve never hearted the internet age-old convention of <3 because it always looked like a sideways […]

“I think Mother Nature was really pissed off the day she created cilantro, because that stuff tastes like s**t.” -Avara   I enjoy cilantro. My wife does not. These are the trials that test a marriage. You’re charged with keeping the details of your partner’s tastes, habits and desires in your head at all times. Or […]

My Kid Just Said… #34

“Dis dinner tastes wike horse.” -Lucas (2013, 4 years old)   It was an insult so innocent and random that it wasn’t at all insulting; if it even was intended as a complaint. He made it sound like it was a positive thing. Unfortunately for my wife, our laughter was loud and long enough that […]
