It’s been a long week and I’m getting ready to jump on another plane flight, but I wanted to share this little bit of sunshine with you guys. If you’ve had a dark day, a slow day, a whiny day or your kids are otherwise being brutal, watch this. It just may cure what ails […]

Learning the Different Differences of People

Posted by on April 5th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK, VIDEOTAPE

There isn’t just one single point that every parent experiences with their kid learning about the difference of other people. Because they’re all different, in usual and in unique ways, you’ll run into several experiences. Little ones don’t tend to get too caught up in the abstract differences of character and personality, so they tend […]

A good ol’, safe-for-kids joke has it’s place. Typically in front of kids. However, there’s a vast world of jokes that aren’t safe for kids, but don’t necessarily get super internet-gross or offensive. A funny, happy middle ground between the sweet innocence and sociopathic derangement. Let’s set down the kids-lunch juice box and enjoy a […]

Counting to Three

Posted by on March 24th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

We don’t all to do it with our kids, but whether it’s counting up or down, a whole friggin’ lot of us parents have. “I’m going to count to three!” As with everything having to do with kids, results will vary wildly for this disciplinary time bomb. Some kids are “you had me at One” and […]

Minecrack

I should have known what was going to happen. I’ve been addicted to… um, IN LOVE WITH Minecraft myself for years, so it shouldn’t have been a shocker for me when I introduced it to my then 5-year-old that he’d go bonkers for it, too. I’m a gamer. My wife is not.  So, when we […]

Kids Are Masters of Life-Napping (20 GIFs)

Posted by on March 14th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

For people who can fall asleep nearly anywhere (in any position, at any time of day, while doing anything), children sure can be impossible to put to sleep. They’re like little dozing narcoleptics who also have terrible insomnia. To say this is frustrating for parents is like saying the sun is a bit toasty. Sure […]

My Kid Just Said… #63

Posted by on March 6th, 2017, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

There are so many memories you collect in the raising of your mini human. They’re not all equal, though. To put it figuratively, some of them are just poorly jotted down in pencil you can’t even read later, some are painstakingly written down with a pen, and some are recorded with a permanent marker in […]

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.
