It seems like everyone is starting to gear up for Father’s Day, and what better way to get things started than something ridiculously sentimental and fun.

Posted by on May 12th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

When something is stuck to a wall or scattered in a million pieces on the floor, or a blubbering sibling is rubbing their head, and you ask a kid what happened? Hah! You’ll hear barely anything (if anything at all) about the sequence of events. Instead, you’ll hear a lot about the philosophical nature of […]

It’s Not Our Fault, Babies Are Just So Squooshable

Posted by on May 8th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

We can all agree that babies are obscenely cute and squooshy, like little peach-fuzzed plush dolls filled with mini marshmallows, warm unicorn burps and dreams come true. It can be a lot easier to resist breathing than it is to resist squeezing and hugging and cuddling the little pudgy blobs of joy. It’s totally their […]

“Remember when you proposed?” [sighs] “And you got down on your hands and knees…WAIT! I mean your KNEE!“ -Elizabeth   Someone was able to capture the reaction, but unfortunately there is no photo evidence that I was only on my knee to ask for her hand. After she caught her word slip, we both exploded […]

We’ve partnered up with Plum Organics because they had a brilliant idea that fit our site and purpose perfectly: to create an online convo where parents could tell it like it is, to see and show others they’re not alone, and to laugh or cry at the wonderful and grim realities of parenthood.

All the Ways Kids Become Owners of Things

Posted by on April 22nd, 2015, under NOTEBOOK

It’s been a while since we’ve been babies and kids, so it’s easy to forget what it’s like for them and that they tend to be consistently unemployed and extremely cash poor.

“To kids, everything is allowed until someone says it’s not allowed.” [to our son] “Hey, honey! That’s not allowed.” -Elizabeth   As parent’s we’re the “supposed to” and “not allowed” police for our kids. They don’t tend to see or care about the bad in a lot of ideas they have.
