Picky Eaters Drive Parents Insane

Picky Eaters Drive Parents Insane

You guys came out in full force for this one, both with your comments before we recorded (thank you!) and with your compliments after we shared the episode (THANK YOU!). We may finally be getting the hang of this!

It doesn’t hurt that discussing the eating habits – or lack thereof – of children gave us so much to work with, and to bitch about. From “air sandwiches” to two weeks of hot dogs, from eating pancakes for every meal to only eating a hamburger if it’s referred to as “Salisbury steak,” it’s clear that kids are insane. But what it all boils down to is making sure they don’t starve, even if that means letting them have the sugary cereal once in a while, despite Pete the Prude’s sheltered upbringing. FED IS BEST!

Podcast Episode: Father’s Day

Podcast Episode: Father’s Day

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but this Sunday is Father’s Day. Yeah, dads get a day too, I’m as weirded out as you are.

But we are parents too, after all, some might even say equal partners in this whole debacle. Not me though. You can stuff your parenting equality in a sack! I want no part of it. I am plenty satisfied with my low bar, thank you very much.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t really care about Father’s Day. But I may be alone on this one. Read more about Podcast Episode: Father’s Day

The Great Pet Moms Controversy

The Great Pet Moms Controversy

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed a bit of a controversy last week, just before Mother’s Day.

I posted a meme that generated some passionate responses, and for once it wasn’t about Trump or gun control or vaccinating your kids.

This was about pet moms – more specifically, why they’re not actually moms.

Who Has It Worse? Everyone!

Who Has It Worse? Everyone!

No matter what kind of parent you are, you struggle. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or dad, a go-to-the-office parent, even a work from homer, raising kids is difficult and exhausting.

But each kind of parent has their own challenges, and on the latest episode of the Dad and Buried podcast, Pete and I chatted about all the different ones we face. With help from your comments (follow my Instagram stories to answer my topic-related questions and have your name called out!), we got into it. I’ve been a stay-at-home dad, it was not for me. But working parents don’t have it easy either.

Parenting On Empty

Parenting On Empty

Exhaustion is the number one parenting complaint on a long list of them. It’s valid, it’s real, and it’s very old news. Oh, you’re tired? Tell me something I don’t know.

Sorry, but being tired isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? A billion tireds! Being tired and parenting anyway!

I call it “parenting on empty.” But I should probable just call it “parenting” because we all do it. And it’s impressive AF.
