This week, the Doctor and the Dad wrote an article for the PBS Parents website! It’s all about “household chaos” – how to identify it, how it can hurt your family, and how you can get it under control.
It’s full of interesting research, helpful tips, and interactive diagrams like this:
If you like the other stuff we write, we think you’ll like this too. So what are you waiting for? Break up your kids’ fight, turn down your eardrum-blasting TV speakers, put out the oven fire in your kitchen, and go check out the article!
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend! And the Doctor and the Dad’s incredibly thoughtful children decided to give Mommy an amazing gift this year:
They wrote this week’s blog post for her!
From typing on the computer, to taking photos, to dispensing some truly sage parenting advice, our two-and-a-half- and four-and-three-quarters-year-olds have totally got this blogging thing figured out already.
So to all your mothers out there, please do what we’re insisting the Doctor does right now – sit back, relax and enjoy our kids’ post!
That’s because we’re giving you an exclusive reading of the book people are calling “super fun,” “fascinating,” “an easy read” and “the perfect baby shower gift!”
For the record, the reading’s not by us – it’s by our kids. And even though they make up nearly all the words they say in it, we still think it’s pretty darn good.
By the way, if you have read our book but haven’t gotten around to writing a review of it yet, please do! We’d love to hear what you think about Think Like a Baby on the Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads websites – and we’re sure our potential customers would too.
Writing a book is a pretty cool accomplishment. And if you’ve actually demonstrated the compassion and commitment it takes to pen 200-plus pages of somewhat sensical material on a single topic, you have every right to be proud.
So tell your family and friends. Tweet it to all your followers. Go on a talk show, shout it from the top of a mountain, spray paint it on the side of your car or hire a professional skywriter if you want.
Just please don’t compare it to having a baby.
People who’ve written something big seem to do this all the time – equating the oh-so-tortuous writing process to the act of giving birth. Or referring to the finished book itself as my baby.
But we’re not down with that.
Because now that we’ve done both things – having babies twice (with a third on the way) and writing our awesome new parenting book Think Like a Baby (which is officially on sale now!), we can tell you that these two experiences are NOTHING alike.
So you may have noticed that the Doctor and the Dad have been writing fewer articles on our website than usual.
Or maybe you haven’t, since Facebook decided to stop sending out notifications of our new posts to most of our followers for some reason. (Anybody know what’s up with that? Weird stuff. If you want to make sure you get updates whenever we write something new, you should subscribe to our blog now, then add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe list, so we don’t end up in your spam folder!)
