Fun Friday: Real, Funny, Controversial (Followed by Sarcasm) Love It (Video)

“Lol Keys Mean Laughing Out Loud Or Hilarious ” by Stuart Miles via

My kids and I were watching the Muppets again on Tuesday night and during the commercial we laughed even harder at these two dads than we did at the episode we were watching! (I especially loved the song at the end of this episode)!

While my fourteen year old daughter seemed a little confused at the end (not uncommon though), my eleven year old son was still laughing and my eldest and I looked at each other also laughing, because it was the cutest and funniest commercial we’d seen in a long time! (The kids are fans of the movie, and we got the reference.)

Sadly (and somewhat laughably) my mind went right to all the outraged people who probably hated that commercial, and now that brand (unbeknownst to me the commercial has been out a while- shows you how often I watch television).

After the show I just had to check out the video again and prepare a Fun Friday post for you. I just had to share it! It’s awesome! I knew it would gather so many laughs…even if some people don’t like it. Because face it, you know they’re going to laugh first….then start thinking about it, then start getting mad and then begin the rants and blame-hate game.

Why not just laugh at what was simply adorable, 
then live and let live?

Couldn’t hurt right? 

...the other options do.

Back to School Anxiety: Bullying

Download “School Boy Being Stressed” by David Castillo Dominici via I recently wrote about how to help your child if they’re struggling with going back to school because they were bullied. My biggest most important tip was to listen, because I honestly could not write a ‘How-to-make-them-not-afraid’ column. Frankly I thought that was absurd. Fear is sometimes real. Anxiety is sometimes truly there, and for a good reason. Our job as parents isn’t to try to make it go away, it’s to try to find out the true source of those worrisome feelings.

6 Ways to Support Teens and Mental Health (Column Related)

  Enjoying a trip to see family and exploring the outdoors. May was Mental Health Awareness Month. It’s over now, but it shouldn’t be. I’m not a medical professional or anything even close, but I am convinced that every person on the planet (no matter age, economic status, profession, race, or gender) is vulnerable to events that can alter their state of mind. If you’re not sure about this, just research the increase in the amount of people seeking psychological help due to the pandemic, then try getting an appointment with a therapist or counselor that doesn’t require weeks or months on a wait list. There are so many things damaging our mental health that we don’t even realize. Add underlying issues not yet detected and undiagnosed…it’s a bad situation made worse, and the need for support more urgent. Many teens are struggling with mental health issues right now and many of us don’t even know it. How could we? Not too many teens feel comfortable talking to adults about ‘their stuff’ a

Green Punch Buggy....!!!!

Green Punch Buggy...No Punch Back! As I was writing this blog post, my son came to me showing off his Lego creation. And don't you know I got hit at least five times since on my computer screen was displaying at least five different punch buggies, of five different colors thanks to Google Images. (Bad timing I'm thinking...) How can we possibly have world peace with these silly cars in the world!? ;) Don't the owners of these cute-but-obnoxious-cars understand that driving these things around town promotes violence!? ;) Anyhow.... The original purpose of this blog was to ask parents everywhere this question: Do you find yourself saying 'PUNCH BUGGY *BLANK-COLOR*! '  to yourself, even when the kids are not in the car??? I do! Isn't it funny how those games we used to play as a child are still around? I bet our parents say the same thing.... HAPPY FRIIIIIIDAAAAYYYY! P.S. I got hit at least ten more times, since as my son stood beside
