Posted by on March 3rd, 2016, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

All first-time parents try to study “what to expect” and prepare for the arrival of their first-ever munchkin.

But this is different. Deaf husband finds out wife is pregnantDisturb RealityOriginal: https://youtu.be/lMqjpnre0U8 Posted by Disturb Reality on […]

Posted by on October 13th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

I present to you a challenge here. Here’s the deal. People throw baby showers, often with “special” cakes for the occasion. And for whateeeeeever reason—silliness gone wildly wrong or some purely insane cruelty—people have cakes made that… could act as terminal birth control for any non-pregnant attendee, and could definitely put the pregnant guest of […]

Posted by on July 2nd, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Hidden camera videos aren’t usually my jam. They’re just… kinda creepy. But when the outcome is unexpected and awesome, it’s all worth it. This guy set up a camera to watch what would happen when he and his wife told their in-laws they were going to be grandparents. The result is one of the manliest […]

Funny Ultrasounds Only a Parent Could Love

Posted by on June 11th, 2015, under NOTEBOOK

When expectant parents get a regular ol’ (non-3D) ultrasound, they can’t wait to see their little mini-me, but they don’t always expect to see an antique, black-and-white silent film of Skeletor as a baby, snuggling in a backpack. No one seriously says, “Awwwww, he’s got your spine, honey.” Or “Wow just LOOK at that pelvis!” […]

The Sweet Gasping Breaths of Life (3 Amazing Videos)

Posted by on May 14th, 2015, under NOTEBOOK

I like to think I study parenting. Not with books or articles or words and such—the back-and-forth flicking of the eyeballs thingy interferes too much with my naturally vacant stare. No, I study parenting through experience and observation, and from hearing war stories of wrangling the little mini humans into full-sized ones. I’m interested in it […]

20 Happy Little Painted Baby Bumps

Posted by on October 14th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

A completely blank sheet of paper in front of a kid seems to beg to be dashed and scribbled on with a crayon. The freshly wave-smoothed sand of a beach beckons to someone holding a good pointy stick. A new, pure white subway train totally hollahs at a tagger with a full can of spray […]

Doing Pregnancy Announcements the Right Way

Posted by on September 25th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Getting pregnant is a huge moment, a monumentally momentous moment. It’s no shocker that some people got really clever with the way they decided to spring the news to everyone. I never did anything particularly special for pregnancy announcements, but it makes me very vicariously happy to see (as you’re about to), that there are […]

5 Years Ago This Very Minute…

Posted by on February 5th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

I found out we were having our first baby five years ago to this very minute. Rather than tell you about it, why don’t I show you… I was at a staged reading of a friend’s script. We finished up and I felt this urgency from my wife, Avara. It was an energy like I […]
