Funny parenting blog

6 Jan

I recently (as in yesterday) discovered the blog of Jason Good.  He’s a stand-up comedian and writer who blogs about boring everyday daddy and husband stuff.  It’s hilarious and I keep going back to it (despite needing to do other things like shower or feed my kids) to read another post.

This one in particular had me laughing out loud: 46 Reasons My Three Year Old Might Be Freaking Out!  If you don’t have kids, you’ll read it and think children are completely and totally irrational and ridiculous.  And you’d be right.  Children, especially young children, are odd little beasts.  But we love them anyway.  One of the tricks to maintaining sanity is write down their ridiculousness and laugh about it later.  Maybe much later.

46 Reasons My Three Year Old Might Be Freaking Out by Jason Good

Some of these are total guesses. Educated guesses, but guesses nonetheless. Seems like it’s hard being a kid.

His sock is on wrong.

His lip tastes salty.

His shirt has a tag on it.

The car seat is weird.

He’s hungry, but can’t remember the word “hungry.”

Someone touched his knee.

He’s not allowed to get in the oven.

I picked out the wrong pants.

His brother looked at him.

His brother didn’t look at him.

His hair is heavy.

We don’t understand what he said.

He doesn’t want to get out of the car.

He wants to get out of the car by himself.

The iPad has a password.

His sleeve is touching his thumb.

He doesn’t understand how popsicles are made.

The inside of his nose stinks.

Chicken is gross.

A balloon he got six months ago is missing.

A puzzle piece won’t fit in upside down.

I gave him the wrong blue crayon.

The gummi vitamin is too firm.

Netflix is slow.

He jumped off the sofa and we weren’t watching.

He’s not allowed to touch fire.

Everything is wrong with his coat.

There’s a dog within a 70 mile radius.

A shoe should fit either foot.

I asked him a question.

His brother is talking.

He can’t lift a pumpkin.

He can’t have my keys.

The cat is in his way.

The cat won’t let him touch its eyeball.

The inside of his cheek feels rough.

Things take too long to cook.

He has too much food in his mouth.

He sneezed.

He doesn’t know how to type.

The DustBuster is going to eat him.

His mom is taking a shower.

Someone knocked over his tower.

He got powdered sugar on his pants.

The yogurt won’t stay on his spoon.


If you are the parent of one or more young children, I can guarantee you’ll enjoy Jason Good’s writing.  And if you hate his writing, you’ll at least feel a sense of camaraderie due to the share struggles of raising tiny humans.
