Anyone who’s around kids for 5 minutes knows how incredibly weird they are. It’s why we love them and it’s why they drive us crazy. And sometimes they’re so out of control they just seem, well, drunk. But in a completely wholesome way, of course.
There are different schools of thought on how valuable it is to tell kids they can be and do anything, but we can all agree that, in this case, it’s a brilliant idea. Baby Khoi can be anything…thanks to his dad’s quick and creative sketches on photos he takes of his new baby.
After snapping a picture of his son, dad imagines what adventurer or superhero might strike the same pose as his boy does in the image, and then he makes it happen.
This past summer, Haleh’s dad was in town to visit. She and her husband were excited to tell him about the baby they’re going to have, so when dad thought they were going to snap a few pics, they rolled a video instead.
Due to requirements at work, former news anchor Penn Holderness has never trick-or-treated with his kids…
So this year I am making up for lost time. I am picking the kids up from class and we are getting dressed immediately. I am taking enough pictures to fill up a NORAD server. I am toasting pumpkin seeds. I am setting up an adult margarita station in my driveway for pregame.

There’s a lot that goes into a career in the arts or some other creative field, but really it comes down to skill and drive. And as parents, we can make a huge difference in whether our creative children have this.
The best part? The most important thing they need is completely free…and withholding it has literally no advantages.
If the pictures of “parenting” featured on many stock image sites are to be believed, having kids is all bright smiles, bright kitchens, and bright clothes. But, as anyone who has kids (or anyone who has ever even seen a kid) can attest…this is all a lie.
Over at the site It’s Like They Know Us, moms with a sarcastic flair can submit their favorite, most ridiculous stock image of motherhood accompanied by an acerbic caption. The contrast between the pseudo-serenity in the imagery and the biting mockery in the commentary is perfect.
When Erica and Hannes were asked to babysit their friends’ 6-month old son Alex for a full day and night, they were understandably a little nervous. Alex’s parents gave the timid babysitters thorough training, but no one expected things to go so wrong.
Fortunately, despite the insanity, Erica and Hannes had everything under control and sent regular updates…
