What It’s Like Being A Parent: Part Two

Posted by on June 6th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

So, we covered what it’s like being a parent and having to answer UMPTEENFAFILLION questions, last time. But this time, let’s talk about privacy. Privacy, as you knew it parents and non-parents, becomes extinct when you have children. Or at least the version of it that used to be employed. There is no such thing […]

Toddler with the Voice of a Grown Man? (VIDEO)

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 […]

Winnie The Vader Is The Coolest

Posted by on April 8th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I’ve read so many comic books, kids’ picture books and everything in between that I can’t help imagining random mashups of characters and plot lines. It was inevitable. One of my favorite mashups was done by an amazing artist who put Winnie the Pooh and Star Wars together. The result was amazing. Wookiee the Chew […]

You’ll Want to be an Action Movie Kid Soooooo Bad!

Posted by on April 3rd, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

It’s pretty much impossible to be a kid and not dream of being an action hero or superhero. They’re just so calm, cool and drive the best friggin’ cars. Daniel Hashimoto is a father and an After Effects genius who works for DreamWorks. He used his special effects skills to make 10-15 second videos of […]

The Evolutionary Progress of Kids’ Games

Posted by on March 26th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Listen, I’m not one of those old men sitting in his boxers on the porch spraying people with a hose as they walk all over his lawn. Okay, fine. I am, but with that completely aside, are kids today too coddled and catered to? I think the answer is “yes” and now I have unequivocal […]

3-Year-Old Ninja Caught on Video

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

When I was about ten, I created a home-made pair of nunchucks. I sawed a broomstick into two short kid-ninja-sized handles and then, using screws, attached them together with a short chain. After about five minutes of practicing, I was certain that the authentic Japanese word nunchaku must have been defined as “self-inflicted head trauma.” […]

Time flies… so fast.

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

Tempus fugit. It’s a Latin expression that means “time flies.” I first heard this expression from my dad, who is Yale-graduate-level learned. I was a just a teen, so I had to either assume he’d freakishly sneezed or ask him what it meant. Tempus has been vigorously fugitting since I was a lad, so Googling […]

What If ‘Full House’ Wasn’t Full?

Posted by on February 19th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Did you watch “Full House” growing up? I did. Each character had their shining and whining moments, but the character that never made any sense to me was Michelle. Yes, I’m talking about the cutesy Olson twins who played the single character whose sole purpose was comic relief by way of small smiles and giant […]
