If there was one of those facebook relationship status options for my children, at this point in August, I would choose “needs to see other people.” On both sides — we literally need to see other people.
It’s been an amazing summer but for our children and ourselves — we are ready for the routine the school year brings.
As working parents we had the familiar struggle of “what will the kids do while we work?” issue on a daily basis.
Our kids had a full summer of camps, play dates, fun babysitters, and a few work trips with mom and dad. We’ve spent A LOT of time with them — and we’ve treasured every (almost every) minute.
Just as much as WE are ready to walk them to the classroom door -THEY are ready to go.
Before they head back to school — my final few days of their summer break are spent filling out paperwork (didn’t I fill this out last year?), buying a random list of school supplies (do the erasers have to be pink?), signing up for committees (I swear this year I’m not going to forget any meetings), and trying, so desperately trying to get organized (THIS is going to be the year.. I can FEEL it).
So here’s our ode to the parents, students, and teachers as we start a new school year in the only way we know how.
Since we danced around in our driveway in ill-fitting pajamas, we’ve been lucky enough to get some memorable phone calls: The Las Vegas skydiving company wanting Kim to jump out of a plane in her Christmas Jammies (Kim gets anxiety … Continue reading →
It is the panicked thought that goes through every dad’s mind, one hour before your family comes back in town. About once a year, dad is left home alone, and many of us take that opportunity to revert to our primal selves – We eat horrible food, we don’t make the bed, we meet up with the guys, we clean up NOTHING – that is, until about an hour before they get home.
TWO NOTES -
1. This was real – actually shot while my wife and kids made a quick trip down to Disney – the mess is real, the story is real, and thank goodness I have a tripod, because I had to photograph myself.
2. The guy who looks like Jason Sudekis is my buddy Jake Fehling – we are working on a Holderness Family spinoff called “Rapping Dads” – more to come.
Dads/Moms – does this sound familiar? Comment below.
It’s a twitter takeover and it’s happening now. I can’t believe Fox Home Entertainment is trusting us with the keys to their twitter handle — but this. is. happening. Follow along @FoxHomeEnt for the fun. Even better, tweet us your … Continue reading →
Momentous occasion! It’s my first blog entry while driving a car. This voice dictation thing is amazing I hope it doesn’t get any of the warts wrong. (Kim takes the phone out of his hand here — even though we … Continue reading →
Coming up on the celebration of my 8th one of these, I ask this question – what is the perfect Father’s Day? We all have our different answers, and our answers have probably changed over time. For me, five years … Continue reading →
In my opinion the perfect mom… is NOT perfect. 1. She doesn’t get all dolled up to go outside the house (because honestly, who wears mascara at the gym?) 2. She leaves the house trashed every once in a while (because … Continue reading →
We try. Really hard. And we are failing. Hard. We’ve read books, watched documentaries, asked all of our friends, even befriended someone called the Food Babe, in our quest to eat healthy. We’ve learned we live in a world where … Continue reading →
We’ve gotten a ton of emails, and interest, after the release of our most recent “Next Day Video” about Oscar Night. The majority of the emails asked the simple question : How did you turn that video around so quickly? The … Continue reading →
This is off the top of my head, no help from Google or IMDB… which is terrifying. I’ve watched these way too many times. Please, comment, share, agree and disagree. and check out our “Next Day Video” Best Actor – … Continue reading →
