Things You Thought Would Be a Bigger THING, Growing Up

Posted by on March 2nd, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, SNAPSHOTS

As a kid, I was given several impressions that didn’t quite pan out as an adult. When you’re growing up, your head is soaking up everything like a good little sponge. Or maybe a lollipop that fell under the couch. It can come from rotting your brains on cartoons, shows, commercials and movies, or from […]

My Wife Just Mommy-Brained… #305

Posted by on February 20th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

We had boxes and bags of old toys we’d finally convinced (bribed and begged, basically) our seven-year-old son to part with. But little kids have a rather random and fast-changing mind, so we knew we needed to get them out of the house and over to Goodwill, ASAFP. The past three nights our little guy […]

Posted by on February 10th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Parenting has a lot of funny moments to it, and even the not-so-funny moments can be made fun of pretty damn majestically.

My Wife Just Sobbed… #303

Posted by on February 6th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

She was obviously in a funk, so I made sure I hadn’t stepped on her emotional toes somehow in a clumsy husband way. But her mood was shadowed by the upcoming school field trip. A sleep-away trip. The school was going to a place in the mountains and the kids would all stay the night […]

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]

How To Watch Your Kid Do Something “All By Myself”

Posted by on December 16th, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

As awesome and necessary as it is, growing kids up, sometimes it’s mind-bendingly hard to watch a kid do something on their own.
