Like Father, Like Twins

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

There are some things that make me feel like a total amateur as a father. For example, having twins. The very idea just sends PANIC signals down my spine. If I thought I was tired before, two exhaustion machines at the same time? Yeah, okay. COOL. But there are aspects of the twin experience that […]

Things You Can’t Do When You’re Not A Toddler

Posted by on July 28th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Having kids and taking them out in public is basically a clown parade. For some kids, growing up is the process of being told what to do and knowing how to act in public. We strip them down to the behavior only we prescribe. But we reserve the right to act equally childish. Grownups can […]

Posted by on July 17th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

We DEFINITELY don’t want to be helpful here. It kinda makes us seasick when people ask us for legitimate advice. But when a friend of the website, Garrett Robinson, asked if I could help him with Vlog (for the uninitiated that means: “a vagina log”), I said fine. But only if he paid me in […]

Feeling Old vs. Being Old

Posted by on June 20th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Kids these days. When I was a kid, actually old people didn’t really complain about being actually old. Though, they might have occasionally moan-bragged about how tough they had it when they were whippersnappers. Subscribe to CollegeHumor (Liking, favoriting and commenting helps videos on YouTube, so go nuts.)   I think I can see it […]

Saying “I Love You” at TWO-MONTHS-OLD???

Posted by on June 12th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’ve never really paid much attention to all of the average times, sizes, weights and milestone whatnots of parenting, but this amazing. The first time a dad hears his child says the words “I love you” is priceless, but this is made extraordinary by how early it happened! Or maybe it was all just hiccups. […]

As we hurtle towards Father’s Day, every brand and marketing guru is going to bludgeon you with videos about dads.

Posted by on June 5th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Imagine asking a little kid a question and hearing a man’s voice answer you back. Well stop. We’ve got the power of the internet, you don’t need to imagine! I always had an unusually deep voice as a kid, but this is hilarious and weird. This dad took video conversations with his son and digitally […]

What It’s Like Being a Parent: Part One

Posted by on May 28th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, NOTEBOOK

My non-parent friends often ask me what it’s like to have children. I usually answer with something sarcastic or sentimental. Or both, just to confuse them. Because screw them and their “free will.” But I’ve decided it’s time I let them in on my life as a dad. In this continuing series, I will journey […]
