My Kids are Pushing Poop Pills

Toilet Tales

Ryan has become obsessed with the iPad app called iMovie. He uses it to make movie trailers and 15-minute videos of himself playing Minecraft as he explains what’s happening. Yeah, in his own words, Ryan’s become a “YouTuber.” Jason loves joining in at times too, and when the kids’ cousins are over for a visit, […]

Lego Star Wars Easter Eggs are a Force to Be Reckoned With

Darth Maul

If you’re reading this because you think I’m going to share some really cool hidden trick, cheats or homages that I found in the Lego Star Wars video games (a.k.a. “Easter Eggs”), the yolks on you. While the seriously hysterical Lego Star Wars DVD The Empire Strikes Out is on sale now (I highly recommend it!), what […]

The Infamous Toilet Paper Wars!


Image via The Zoom Forget Coke vs. Pepsi. Mac vs. PC. Or even boxers vs. briefs. Arguably the greatest debate between people on this planet is clearly one about toilet paper. It has nothing to do with softness or 1, 2 or 3-ply. (Though soft TP has been scientifically proven to lead towards a happier […]

Win a Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Prize Package (Ends 4/8)

Kraft Mac & Cheese

Like all good children in the world, my kids love macaroni and cheese. Ryan more so than Jason. Jason will eat pretty much any macaroni and cheese without complaint. Ryan, on the other hand, reminds me of Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally. Yeah, he’s crazy picky when it comes to his food. No two foods […]

Blog Spotlight: Neal from Raised By My Daughter

Neal Call

Meet Neal from Raised By My Daughter Blogger: Neal Call Blog: Raised By My Daughter   How’d your blog get its name?  It came to me in a dream. Also, when I had a kid, I realized that I was going to have to let a lot of my juvenile inclinations and excuses go. Have I let […]

Happy Pi Day!

Pi vs. Pie

It’s March 14. Otherwise known as Pi Day! Finally, a real holiday for us math nerds. Granted, I can’t recite pi past 3.14 myself, but as a kid I used to be able to go out to maybe 7 or 8 decimal points. There are loads of ways for you to celebrate Pi Day so […]

Moving Right Along

Bubble Wrap Suit

Pop quiz time! Other than getting married, what’s the biggest, most stressful thing you’ll most likely do? If you said, “Clip an alligator’s toenails with one hand, while solving a Rubik’s Cube in the other, as you jump out of an airplane,” well yeah, that’s probably a bit much. But that’s not what I was […]

Twinkie the Kid Lives! The Apollo Has Landed in Hostess-ville!

Zombie Twinkie the Kid

I haven’t slept in weeks. Make that months. Haven’t shaved, combed my hair or even changed out of my jammy jams. I’ve been a true representation of the Walking Dead. Ever since I wrote about Hostess Snack Cakes going bankrupt, I just haven’t had a reason to smile. Even Mega Stuff Oreos can’t get the […]

Spring Blog Round-Up: $500 March Cash Giveaway (Ends 3/31)

$500 Spring Giveaway

I’ve known Kyle from Rather Be Shopping for years. In the world of coupon codes, he’s one of the good guys. While he and I were coupon competitors, we’ve always been pretty friendly with each other. It’s a tough shark-filled pool out there on the Internet, so you’ve gotta help each other out when you […]

Win a Glow Crazy Distance Doodler (Ends 3/22)

Glow Crazy Distance Doodler_Techno Source

The coolest glow-in-the dark toy I’ve ever owned in my life was a cheap Star Wars light saber knockoff I had when I was a kid. It really looked like a plain white sword, but if you held it up to a light for 30 seconds or so, it’d totally glow in the dark when you turn […]

Doggone It! Apparently We’re Getting a Samoyed.


Look at that puppy! Just look!!! Yeah, he’s pretty darn cute. And no, he’s not ours. But he’s a Samoyed breed, and apparently, that’s the kind of dog we’re getting. I say this based not on facts, but based on my wife’s Instant Message from yesterday: We are getting a samoyed. They are hypoallergenic. They […]

Things are starting to heat up for one Tony Stark. And I ain’t just talking about his jet boots! Zing! Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3 (Jason’s birthday!) and the big marketing push is fully underway. There have already been a bunch of trailers and a movie poster. But Marvel Films has now […]
