My 2-y-old is starting to string together some pretty cute sentences and one of his go-to phrases is “all day”. As in “play you all day” when telling me he wants to play with me all day or “fight him all day” when saying he wants to fight a bad guy all day.

Today he saw a can of Mt Dew and said to me, “You that all day”. He’s not wrong.

"Something smells like eggs…"

Hey everyone…I’m still sort of recovering from the emotional tailspin that the cancellation of last night’s show put me into. For those of you who didn’t catch the updates, I was set to do an online comedy show with thedaddycomplex, how2beadad, manvchild, and some other hilarious people, and Frontier Internet was experiencing an outage that made it impossible for the show to go on. 

But the show MUST go on. So we will be rescheduling the show for another date sometime soon. Thanks to everyone who RSVP’d on Google+ saying you’d be there. I hope you can be there next time too.

I am now going to go back to listening to the soundtrack to “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. It’s super moody and whimsical.

Children’s books are amazing improv tools. I think every improv actor out there should go to there local library and check out “Should I Share My Ice Cream” by Mo Willems this fun read is like ‘Emotional Bombardment’ with a new emotion in every line on every page.

We haven’t read this one, but we have a ton of Mo Willems’ “Elephant and Piggie” books and they are all great both as children’s books and as improv tools (a combination of my two favorite things!)

  • Me: (laughing about something inappropriate)
  • 4yo: Dad what are you laughing about?
  • Me: It's really hard to explain.
  • 4yo: Can you please just explain it to me?

Last night I mentioned the word “work” and my 2yo said, “Daddy no work. Stay home. Play me all day.” So if you’re wondering why I sit in my cubicle crying all day, that’s why.

My 4yo just closed a squeaky door and then said, “That door was whining because it didn’t want to be closed.”

Chandler heard the word “spanking” and asked what it meant. I explained what getting spanked was and said that some Mommies and Daddies use that as a way to teach their kids a lesson but that I would never do that.

Then jokingly Chandler said, “I’m going to spank you.”

"You can’t, I’m on my back. My bottom is on the bed."

"I’m going to spank your front."

He then slapped my crotch. I’m still crying.
