How I Stop Our Boys’ Unnecessary Tears

thedaddycomplex:

That question from earlier made me think of this.

If one of our boys comes to me on the verge of tears and says, “I bonked my elbow!” I check out the injury and say something like, “Well, it seems okay, so… oh, wait a minute. Okay, I see. Yeah, this is going to have to come off.” Then, I pretend to try and pull their arm off.

I put a lot of effort into it, grunting and gritting my teeth, sometimes dangling them upside down. Then, I look for the “release switch,” which invariably resides under the armpit. When they’re squealing with laughter, I stop and say, “Well, I can’t get it to come off. Think you’ll be okay?” They always say yes.

I have yet to try this tactic on a serious injury.

Farting. Baby. Puppet.

BOOM! Here’s an all new episode of Fighting with Babies, now in glorious HD.

It clocks in at about 90 seconds, so you have no excuse not to watch it.

I just don’t get people.
After Tumblr user bageldreams posted a photo of herself in a bathing suit, some anonymous douchebag sent her a hurtful message calling her fat.
She handled it wonderfully because she’s a nice person. And the best part is that anonymous coward is dead wrong. She’s beautiful.
So in solidarity with her, here’s a shot of me in my bathing suit. I’m a little fleshier than I would like, but I that’s not going to stop me from flaunting my burgeoning man-boobs this summer.
It’d be pretty awesome if other Tumblr users (and everyone else) started some sort of #titsoutforaimee-style campaign in support of beauty in all it’s forms. Want to join in? Post a shot of yourself in your bathing suit and tag it with #swimsuitsforbagel.
Fuck anon hate, man. Seriously.

Reblogging myself here because the quote above, plus this post by mammalingo, both came at the perfect time for me. And that time would be “when I was in the midst of a panic attack about my life choices.”
