Ten Quick Thoughts about Rogue One (SPOILER FREE, I THINK) from a Dad’s Perspective

For the second straight year, this one felt really good as a “family” film.  Zero bad words.  Zero sexual innuendos.  Great humor that everyone can understand.  There’s violence, but it isn’t gory. Before you go, Google CGI so you can explain it to your kids. They are going to want to know how they did this […]

You down with ADD? Yeah, me too.

The Penn you see on this website, and in these videos, is the product of a very fun job.  It’s a job not too many people have, so every morning I wake up and count my lucky stars that I get to do this job. I think about all the crazy things that happen with […]

Nine months? I wanted to be done after 9 minutes.

Let me start by clarifying something: Much like last year when I tried simulating Labor for like 20 minutes, I know that this is nothing like the real thing.  I have an insane amount of respect for all that women do to usher all of us into the world. Nonetheless, it clearly makes my wife […]

Penn tackles Napoleon Dynamite’s famous dance scene

Kim and I were newlyweds. We were living in an absolutely minuscule apartment in New York City. Kim had to fly to Houston the next day because someone found a finger in a hot dog, and when you are the new reporter at Inside Edition, that story is yours, all day every day. I couldn’t go to sleep […]

Diamonds are Forever. But Tattoos are cheaper. And foreverER.

This is the 11th Valentines Day with my wife.  The first 10 have been very standard, and very predictable.  Flowers.  Dinner.  A card.  The card is the most important thing to her, which makes sense.  We eat dinner every day, and we see flowers every day.  I write with my hand so infrequently now that […]

The reality of Fantasy Football.

We think this video sums it up… check it out, then read more. OK, AGAIN, FOOTBALL IS HERE! Odds are you either smile ear-to-ear, or you cringe at that exclamation. In our family, it’s one of each. Especially the NFL season, which brings with it Fantasy Football, which can lead to some occasional horrible parenting […]

Penn goes into labor: behind the scenes video

A few days ago we published our Mother’s Day tribute (click here to watch that gem). Many of you asked for behind the scenes video of Penn’s labor experience. Here it is! Keep in mind, Dr. Sameh Toma with NCCRM who helped us with this — estimates these simulated contractions were about a third of […]

A basement intervention (aka a fabulous MAKEOVER)

This is a no judgement zone. So, please don’t judge our basement. It was full of furniture first acquired in college: a chair I found on the side of the road, a table from IKEA’s first collection, and a rug I think I may have accidentally took with me when I moved out of a […]
