The Parent / Teacher Conference Phrase Decoder

*Big thanks to The Huffington Post for also running with this humorous back to school / parent-teacher conference post! Twice a year they meet with us, many of us, in 20-minute increments, stacked like six-packs of 4×4 In-n-Out Burgers (Protein Style, natch.) In hallways we wait, we sit and we […]

I knew that someday soon my oldest daughter would start to be presented with real life dangers in a constructive way to help her navigate through potential pitfalls and hazards on the way toward becoming a happy and productive adult. But I didn’t anticipate this.

Watch This (Back to School Edition): Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke “Animal Alphabet” Music Video

The kindie punk-folk pair Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke have been rather dormant of late, frustratingly so to be honest, but they returned this week to deliver a lovely Key Wilde-animated video for their alphabet tune. Listen, your lil’ little one will eventually have to learn his letters, right?  So […]
