13 Weird and Dark Family Comics

Posted by on May 5th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

Um. Okay. So some of these are pretty damned weird. This post isn’t a casual cruise through a pleasant neighborhood, it’s gonna do some donuts and peel out on the road less travelled. So, buckle up, buttercup! As is my standard though, these are all safe-for-work and don’t get really raunchy or offensive or political […]

Extreme Tips for Over-Protecting Your Kids

Posted by on May 3rd, 2017, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, NOTEBOOK

I’ve joined forces with Responsibility.org as one of their paid ambassadors for their TalkEarly campaign, which is about, well… talking early about alcohol responsibility with your kids. Cheers!   We all want to protect our kids’ innocence as long as possible. On one hand, we’re there to protect them; on the other hand, we’re supposed […]

Jimmy Kimmel Is All Of Us

Posted by on May 2nd, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

A parent’s worst nightmare can be accurately summarized as: a horrible fate befalling their children. No matter who you are, what your station in life or where you live, these moments change you. A smart, attentive nurse spotted an issue with Jimmy Kimmel’s newborn son and his account of this moment is so profoundly fatherhood, […]

My Wife Just Said… #314

Posted by on May 1st, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

It’s not that I’m completely incapable of taking care of myself. It’s that I’m mostly incapable of it. Probably. My wife and I have our own particular setup. Every couple develops a system and routines in their marriage and in parenthood, whether all duties are shared or divided up. Whatever works. Hopefully. I’d like to […]

Getting Older (7 Fowl Comics)

Posted by on April 25th, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

We all get older, sure, but having kids seems to accelerate every aspect of the aging process. We hear popular music come on and look at our radio as if it has lost its mind. When we have kids, we cringe at our kids repeating the lyrics. We notice hairs growing in places no self-respecting […]

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 […]

My Wife Just Scolded… #299

Posted by on January 9th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

She’s absolutely right. And I’m absolutely incapable of stopping, apparently. When our 7-year-old makes fart noises, my laughter is pretty much a completely irresistible stimulus response. In my defense, he is exceptional at it. Like a Mozart of fart noises. It almost defies belief that he can even make such sounds. You see, I’m not […]

My Wife Just Said… #255

Posted by on March 7th, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

“You know the expression about ‘the two certainties in life: death and taxes’? When you have a kid, there are two more: dishes and laundry. Hmmmm… This could be a really long list.”   –Elizabeth   That list could get soooooooo long. The internet has a bunch of jokes about the failed promise of hoverboards […]

Inside Out With Only The Out

Posted by on January 7th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I haven’t seen Inside Out yet. I know, what kind of a Pixar fanboy am I if I can’t even get my butt to a screen or a theater or a phone to watch a Disney Pixar film about something that I am intimately involved with: total lack of control over my emotional state. Kidding. […]
