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 […]

This Dad Video Is Legit

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

As we hurtle towards Father’s Day, every brand and marketing guru is going to bludgeon you with videos about dads. Commercials, cards, and advertisements of every sort will suddenly sound bombastically devoted to dads and the experience of fatherhood. Meanwhile, they will ignore us for the rest of the year. But there is a brand […]

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 […]

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 […]

This 5-Year-Old Roars After Cancer

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

Something I’ve never told people before… I’ve always wanted to be a pop star. Big time. Like Justin Bieber without all the doucheness. Usher without any of the dance moves. Justin Timberlake without the… um… something. There are so few pop stars to look up to these days and it’s hard to get inspired to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Milk In My Sippy Cup (Remix)

Posted by on February 13th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

I like to make and listen to music. I’m not very good at making it, but I enjoy listening to it. Sometimes, my son will bang on things and I get ideas for melodies or beats. But, again, I’m not super talented at that stuff. This dad, however, is… What do you guys think? – […]
