Chapstick Potty

Potty training is a necessary evil in every parents life. I don’t know anyone who would describe it as fun but then again changing your child’s diapers for their entire life isn’t going to be fun either. At some point, sooner or later (hopefully sooner) you will potty train your child. Sometimes these things go well, sometimes they go crappy. (That was a dad joke) Continue reading Chapstick Potty

Why is the 2nd Child Crazy?

What’s up with #2? Why is it that more often than not the second born child is crazy? That’s certainly the case with our second child. I often think of him as my own personal Charles Dickens “He’s the best of times, he’s the worst of times” His name is Greyson and I have found myself referring to his antics as being Grey-Cray. I’m not alone in this either. Continue reading Why is the 2nd Child Crazy?

6 Things Toddlers Can Say & Do That Adults Can’t

Often it’s humorous and innocent since they are just beginning to develop their understanding of the world. As it turns out, they can get away with things that an adult simply cannot.

JETPACK Adventure Pack. Fuels your imagination, carries your stuff.

The great folks over at Harry & Jack’s sent us a JETPACK Adventure Pack to try out and review. When the package arrived the kids gathered around while I opened it up. My first thought was “Wow, it feels much more durable than I expected.” My 3 year-old’s first screaming comment was “Awesome, that’s mine! Can I put my lunch in the rocket ship?!”

I was trying to look it over but my son just kept asking me if he could play with it. After unsuccessfully trying to explain to him it was a backpack and not a toy, I finally just gave in and handed him the pack err I mean, rocket ship to play with. He put on the pack and I helped him put on the accompanying arm band. He shouted something along the lines of “To Infinity and beyond” and took off running Continue reading JETPACK Adventure Pack.
