Couple Time

Couple Time

Last weekend, my wife and I got a babysitter and went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday.

This picture was taken on the subway on the way to dinner. That’s my decidedly less glittery hand holding up Mom and Buried’s phone so she can properly apply her eyeliner (I assume it’s eye liner? Don’t @ me!).

For the record: she swears she didn’t realize the scarf matched her iPhone case, and I believe her, because she impulsively grabbed the scarf as we rushed out the door. She had to do her makeup on the G train; we weren’t working with a lot of time! But we’re parents.

We’re never working with a lot of time.

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

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.

Kids Are Expensive AF!

Kids Are Expensive AF!

One of the worst aspects of having kids is, well, just take a spin around my blog. I’m pretty sure I’ve covered them all at some point. Including this week’s podcast topic: how expensive they are!

It starts with diapers and clothes and formula, then it progresses to daycare and sports and food, and eventually you’re buying them cars and college tuition. It never ends.

But it’s not just money they cost you, they also steal your sanity, your time, your sense of self. We get into all the ways kids bleed your wallet, and I do an impression of Louis Gossett Jr. in everyone’s favorite 80s alien movie that almost no one has ever heard of!
