“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 […]

“I have a really bad boob itch! Hug me!” [Hugs me and goes postal on her left breast between us] –Elizabeth We were sitting next to each other in a nice restaurant. Our plates lay before us devastated as we chatted over the soft music playing in the background. Her eyes went wide while I […]

“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 […]

My Wife Just Said… #219

Posted by on July 3rd, 2015, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“Your son just invented an imaginary friend… to blame his farts on.” –Elizabeth His name is Pete, apparently. And he doesn’t play or tell stories or fly or save the world. He just farts.

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 […]

Guide to Applying Sunscreen to a Child (or Wrestling a Croc)

Posted by on June 23rd, 2015, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

We’ve partnered with Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen for this post because who doesn’t want to “go Austrailian” on protecting our kids from the sun, mate?   Children are not always a fan of… a lot of things.
