Types of Boogers (A Cartoonized Guide)

Posted by on October 2nd, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

When we’re younger, we’re nearly always poorly educated about boogers. It’s obvious kids are fascinated by them, but parents and adults don’t tend to go much beyond “stop that” and “oh god gross” and “get that out of your mouth!” when it comes to the subject. Kids are typically left to explore the two tunnels […]

7 Extreme (Probably Definitely Horrible) Back-To-School Measures

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

As you can see, these back-to-school ideas are utterly terrible. No “probably” about it. Not only due to the terrific waste of time and money, but also because they’d result in bulldozing your kid’s individuality while making them a complete outcast laughingstock at school.

Parties: Before and After Kids

Posted by on August 1st, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Having kids is such a gift, one that gives you soooooo much. But it also takes things from you. It eats all your food, throws up on your shirt, uses up your toilet paper, walks into rooms naked, constantly asks questions and sleeps most of the time unless it’s bedtime. Looking at it now, kids […]

Scareded – Scrabble Scribble #10

Posted by on July 23rd, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

  The most innocent things can backfire on parents. There’s really no “winning” with kids. No sure formula. What was delicious today may be the worst thing they’ve ever eaten tomorrow.

Juicebag – Scrabble Scribble #9

Posted by on July 8th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

  You’re there. Life is happening to you. You respond. And your kid observes attentively.

Occasionally, some dirt hits the kid-filter so hard […]
