The Ripeness of Kids Clothes Described Like Wines

Posted by on August 29th, 2019, under NOTEBOOK

Kids live life at Volume 11 but often have their hygiene on mute, so the stink they can whip up is truly breathtaking. As in, plug your nose and hold your breath kind of breathtaking. Like wines, kids seem to ferment with age. Except there’s nothing “fine” about their Cabernet Soverygross or Pee-yoo Noir. Their […]

Cute-to-Nope Chart for Bugs

Posted by on May 23rd, 2019, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

  I’ll admit that this isn’t necessarily “a little kid’s” chart, and that some of us adults still react to some bugs cartoonishly, levitating dramatically before sprinting away in a cloud of smoke, ready to set everything on fire. We all have to agree that some bugs are creepier than others, in our own opinions. […]

Know-It-All Parenting Method

Posted by on May 6th, 2019, under NOTEBOOK

Unlike all other parenting styles, Know-It-All Parenting isn’t actually a method for raising children. It’s for educating other parents on how they’re doing it oh so WRONG. Amazingly all that’s required for Know-It-All Parenting is the ability to speak or type. Another singularly unique advantage is that you don’t need to have a child of […]

Baby Sleep Positions: 11-20

Posted by on December 11th, 2018, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, NOTEBOOK

[ click the image to enlarge ] The term “co-sleeping” is an odd one, because it implies that sleep is actually happening. When the topic of the baby sleeping in the grown-up bed comes up, some parents or not-yet-parents will sneer and growl, “NEVER!” That’s their choice, to not co-sleep, or to be a jerk […]

Maybe We CAN Have Nice Things

Posted by on December 5th, 2018, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

The things we parents do and the sacrifices we make for our kids are pretty countless. We give our lives to theirs, so their lives can be better than ours, or the best we can manage. Even if it means wearing underwear that’s older than they are. There’s a running joke about kids: “this is […]

My Wife Just Rambled…

Posted by on November 27th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

If women can wear “boyfriend jeans” any time they want for casual comfort, then dang it men should be able to rock a pair of maternity pants for the eating Olympics of the holiday season! But most men aren’t very comfortable with wearing women’s clothing. Hmmmmm. But what if there was an answer?! Think of […]

My Wife Just Said… ( • )( • )

Posted by on November 12th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

We were arguing about the dumbest most unimportant thing, as married people do. It was late and we were both tired (though it’s probably unnecessary to qualify that it was late since tiredness is our constant companion). To make things worse, we were both hungry enough to be cranky, but not hungry enough to override […]
