I don’t know what I’m talking about. Seriously. Don’t come here looking for advice. Unless you have questions about ‘80s era sitcoms, I don’t have any answers. If anything, come here weekly, daily, neh, hourly, looking for self assurance. Come here to reassure yourself that you’re doing this parenthood thing better than I am. To reassure yourself that no matter how lost you feel, there’s someone out there that’s way more lost. Someone navigating parenthood with an outdated GPS, no map, and an overinflated sense of direction who’s too stubborn to ask directions. If I can give you that sense of peace of mind, that there’s a dad out there that’s more clueless than you, if I can help you sleep just a little bit better knowing that at least your kids aren’t being raised by a complete jackass, then maybe I’ve done you and the world a solid. You’re welcome.

Absolutely loving your blog and I have passed it along to a lot of friends. So hilarious!

Love your blog. I too have no idea what I’m doing and my biggest pet peeve is people who do and aren’t afraid to tell me that.
Hi Graham. Just wanted to let you know I’ve nominated you for the “Seven Things About Me” award. Here is the link to the nomination – http://thefurfiles.wordpress.com/2012/09/04/boobology-101/. Accept or not, it’s up to you. I think you are very funny either way. Cheers!
Passing your blog on to my “full time daddy, part time potter” husband. He was more then a little pleased when the school year started back up, so I’m sure he can relate. 🙂
I may not be a parent yet, but I love your blog! 🙂
F*ck yes. How did I just discover you now? New follower!

Thank you for the inspiration!
Nominated you for Sunshine award!
thanks for the support!
I heard you on NPR today. I’ve never lied to my kids . . . about warthogs attacking them if they stay out after 6pm. And I was really happy for the gentleman who called in to say he has never lied to his kids and that his kids have never had ANY behavior problems. WOW! Enjoyed reading the blog tonight.
yeah, how do you have a kid with absolutely no behavior problems? a preschooler with no tantrums? amazing.
Just another nomination for you. I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger award, because I’ve always appreciated your work! Thanks for all that you put out there. ~CJ
