The Diaper Changing Warzone

Posted by on November 18th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

That first poop-filled diaper. It’s a doozy. It’s like a poop mitzvah. It separates the pros from the amateurs. I remember mine well. I feel like an aid worker on the beaches of Florida after the BP oil spill if the oil had been shot out of a human butt cannon. Those are magical times. […]

14 Years in Four Minutes

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

I saw Interstellar last weekend with Avara. Let’s just say it was a parade of feels and angst. The movie, without giving anything away, deals with some pretty intense concepts when it comes to space and time. And no, not in a Doc Emmett Brown 1.21 JIGGAWATTs kind of way. It’s stayed with me. The […]

BREAKING: Two Grown Men Act Like Children

Posted by on November 4th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I love when people come to this site for the first time. I wonder what they’re expecting when they step foot on the Dagobah-like grounds of HTBAD. What were they looking for exactly? How did they find us? Did they think we could help? If anything is certain, it’s that nothing is certain in parenting. […]

The Most Advanced Halloween Costume Ever

Posted by on October 31st, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Sometimes I wish I had more definable skills when it came to crafts. Specifically, I wish I could make better costumes and props for my kids. I love playing with my boys, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. My costumes are usually “meh” unless I have help. I suck at it. So, I get to […]

Last time, we described trying to get your kids to come home from the park. In other words, it’s basically insane. Today, let’s talk about having twins. Twins aren’t double the fun. They’re at least quadruple, based on all accounts. But imagine if they were sick. Trying get medicine and vitamins into kids is tough […]

Just Say “Good” To Strangers

Posted by on October 14th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

Teaching kids about strangers is tricky business. Some strangers are police officers or emergency workers. Others are dangerous villains looking to do our kids harm. How do we differentiate and teach our kids to do the same? One mother in Korea decided to instruct her daughter on the best way to deal with strangers. The […]

This Baby Loves Water More Than Anything You’ve Ever Loved

Posted by on October 9th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Watching your baby do something for the first time is quite magical. If the baby enjoys it, it’s extra special. As they grow into full-fledged humans with preferences and tastes is a wonderful journey. Sure, sometimes it can be hell. Why won’t they eat the food you prepared? What’s the deal with ketchup on everything? […]

This Is What’s Wrong With You, Parents

Posted by on October 7th, 2014, under NOTEBOOK

We’re working on figuring out next year’s prospective kindergarten matriculation for Finnegan right now. It’s a little insane. Between the level of competition and the hum of feverish parents meeting on tours, I feel like we’re in some wavelength of college applications already. He’s such a fantastic boy and has so many wonderful qualities that […]
