Friends Don’t Let Friends Go to the Restroom By Themselves


Friends Don't Let Friends...

It’s the rare individual indeed who recollects her own potty-training.  Like the trip through the birth canal (a trauma we mercifully have no conscious memories of), the agonies of learning to relieve ourselves in the toilet rather than the diaper go largely un-noted when we re-tell the days of our lives. Sadly, this isn’t true of our mothers, who must find it enormously therapeutic to regale friends at large dinner parties about the frustrations and messes and indignities they themselves suffered while their little ones transitioned from Pampers to big girl panties. It might have something to do with having endured the traumas of actually owning the birth canal that those babies passed through, now I think of it. I, myself, may or may not have found it necessary to shock and awe my own cadre of friend-moms with my tales of woe in which twin boys scoffed at the promise…

We’ll Never Be Rested: What if Parents Rewrote the Lyrics to Lorde’s ‘Royals’?


Josh Stearns

Lorde’s song “Royals” was everywhere in 2013. But my wife and I wondered, what if instead of a 17 year-old superstar, it was overtired parents of young kids who had written this song. The lyrics below are the result. My friend, singer/songwriter Lisa Hillary  recorded our lyrics and it is amazing. Listen to the track and go check out Lisa’s music.

UPDATE: Thanks to fans of the song we now have a video! Check it out.

First Timers


So well its my first blog….and judging by my the tittle you must guess that i have no idea what i should write on …but i am going to do it anyway,because that is what blogging  is all about or at least i think it is.Since i am a rookie i am facing a couple of problems (which i am sure some you newbies face as well)

1.HOW DO YOU USE THIS DAM THING (i am sure i will figure that out eventually….i hope).

2.And the most important HOW THE HELL DOES ONE GET FOLLOWERS….(i think sending out flyers around might be the only solution)

So many things go into writing something.We are all used to the mainstream essay topics they give us in class on saving the environment that blogs are a lot of work

I think you notice this in many American Sitcoms there is this one person who either maintains a diary or a blog and what  just simply fascinates and intrigues you is as how they have so much to write about.

When you actually get down to it i don’t think its that hard but then again you have to think of so many things.And then at the end of the day does any one actually read it and like it (okay please don’t answer that its rhetoric:P)

I kinda like this whole idea of blogging its basically  an untold story which you are too afraid to actually tell someone so you type it out and let the cyberworld decide whether they are for or against it.

So this was fun.If any of you in your right mind happen to read this well…….. good for you cause I am going to be writing more:P.
