You’ll Want to be an Action Movie Kid Soooooo Bad!

Posted by on April 3rd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It’s pretty much impossible to be a kid and not dream of being an action hero or superhero. They’re just so calm, cool and drive the best friggin’ cars. Daniel Hashimoto is a father and an After Effects genius who works for DreamWorks. He used his special effects skills to make 10-15 second videos of […]

Posted by on March 25th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Weww… I din’n’t actuaw-wy save da city.” But you saved me. “Why?” You just did. “Oh!” [Runs off smiling] -Lucas (2014, 4.5 years old)   He’s such a well-mannered little superhero. It’s funny to think that our kids will never really know how much they saved us. Even when they have their own kids, I […]

An Alphabet According to Kids

Posted by on March 20th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Books and learning products for toddlers and kids can easily give one the idea that our children are being groomed for a future in farming or a jungle expedition. Some of the things chosen to represent the alphabet can be a little random and a lot a bit irrelevant. If you were learning a new […]

Teddy Bear – Scrabble Scribble #5

Posted by on March 14th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

  It took a simple doozy from my four-year-old the other day to point out that I’ve fully operated under the belief that teddy bears are always dudes for as long as I can remember. I suppose that all stuffed animals are male unless they’ve got a bow, long eyelashes or syrupy shapes embroidered all […]

Kids Are So Gullible

Posted by on March 12th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Parents trick their kids from time to time (or all the time), for various reasons. It’s so easy in the early years, they’ll believe anything, really. So much so, it’d really be an oversight for a parent to not deceive their kid somehow. There’re all kinds of ways we pull the wool blankie over their […]

Snowman Building by Child Age

Posted by on December 2nd, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Babies are really terrible at making stuff. Unless it’s poop or pee, or making us smile and never sleep. So their first snowmen will require quite a bit of parental assembly. Some people wonder why parents do this for their babies (birthdays and snowmen and such), hinting that it’s all really just for the parents. […]

My Kid Just Wished… #33

Posted by on November 21st, 2013, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“When I grow up, I don’t want to grow up.” -Lucas (2013, 4 years old)  Wishing on your birthday cake to never grow up probably breaks some Wish Law but I’m good with that if that’s the worst law he ever breaks. It started with him standing on a step stool. He had as much […]

Parenterms: “Sprintercourse”

Posted by on November 8th, 2013, under SNAPSHOTS

Tick tock, tick tock. The clock is ticking for parents. Always. For something. Everything. Raising kids is a game show that starts with “hurry up” music playing, and it never stops. When it comes to making time to make some love, it’s so often the expendable scene that winds up on the editing room floor […]

Ninja Parent Lessons: The Foot Python

Posted by on October 29th, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Suiting up your little one is a tough challenge, even for ninjas. Especially socks. Those legs are tiny, but they’re fast and don’t like to stay still for lengths of time greater than it takes to blink. This cannot be avoided, so you must be clever and fast. As the ancient proverb says: the wise […]
