Children’s Classic Books Ruined with Modern Times

Posted by on December 8th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

The times they are most definitely a-changin’. Today’s kids hear a record scratch sound effect in movies to punctuate abrupt stops, but have no idea what a vinyl record player is. Sadly, it seems, times they are also a bit more a-troubled. So, without getting too dark, let’s see what some classic children’s books would […]

Today is the basically the Olympics of eating in America, which is generally already pretty extreme, any other time of the year. But, eating like it was an athletic competition can have some biological… consequences. So! Without it getting gross at all, let’s put our ear to the bathroom door of this video and listen […]

Parenterms: “Dysleftic”

Posted by on November 16th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

It’s sort of cringy-cute when they put their shoes on the wrong foot, right? Like, you know it’s not going to kill them but if you did it, you’d wish you were immediately dead if you did it. And there’s also that you’ve told them a hundred times part that sort of get the eye […]

The Fine Art of… Balloon Animals? (25 Pics)

Posted by on November 2nd, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Not everyone has tried twisting rubber air sausages into balloon things, like a dog or a crown or a tangled “whatever you want it to be.” A lot of us that have tried, tend to fall back on the joke, “I can make whatever you want as long as it’s a sword or a snake! […]

Posted by on October 21st, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

It’s not a competition. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any winners. Don’t sweat it, though. It doesn’t mean we’re worse parents if we don’t go full-Halloween on our costume game. We don’t all have the time or money or brain power. But these people most certainly do. Wow. We’re all winners when people […]

Cleaning Gladiator: Dad vs Son

Posted by on October 3rd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Kids are perpetual mess factories. But, how often does a kid get the go-ahead to intentionally MAKE messes? I wish you could’ve seen the “opening a big present” look on my 7-year-old’s face when I asked him to. Well, at first he looked at me sideways, like I was playing a trick or had simply […]

​First Mars, Then a Galaxy Far Far Away

Posted by on September 29th, 2016, under "MY KID JUST SAID...", SNAPSHOTS

​I’d been seeing little bits and pieces about Elon Musk’s announcement at the International Astronautical Congress (see article/video) to put plans into hyperdrive for Mars manned missions and even colonization. With the goal of getting us blasted off in less than a decade, he stated, “I really have no other purpose than to make [human] […]

What I Say VERSUS What My Kid Hears

Posted by on September 23rd, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

The number one waste of oxygen on the planet is parents telling their kids things. Probably. Something seems to get lost in translation from the moment sound leaves a parents lips to their kids’ banana-filled ears on the way to the blank slates of the perpetual-imagination machines in their little round heads. Most kids’ ability […]

Kids Failing Majestically (13 GIFs)

Posted by on September 13th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

(Don’t worry, none of these are those awful fails that are followed by a trip to urgent care or the ER.) Everyone has to go through a lot of awful before they get to awesome, and since kids are pretty much new at everything, there is a wealth of awful that can be pretty entertaining. […]

“Drivers Ed” (Imagined by Kids) Video

Posted by on September 1st, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

When little kids are strapped into the car seat watching and listening, they’re picking up a pretty strange sense of importances in operating a motor vehicle. If you watch how a kid drives a toy car around, it’s pretty clear evidence they wouldn’t make the best driving instructors. Heck, asking a kid to explain how […]
