Dad tip #23: Homemade cards from baby are cute

What's that? Your five month old can't make a homemade card? The frak he can't! Until your kid can smear a bunch of finger paint all over a gigantic sheet of white paper and until your kid can glue a bunch of random crap -- and why does the crap alway include macaroni? -- to a piece of construction paper, it's up to you to make the cards and sign your kid's name to it.

You've got to get into your kid's head before you make the card. You can do it up simple or complicated. For this Mother's Day, I inserted a pop-culture-related inside joke into the following Photoshopped masterpiece:

It's makes your kid look good. It makes mom happy. And, in this case, it's way fun to make references to The Karate Kid.

Dad tip #22: Pay attention to your wife on Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day. So you should be paying extra special attention to your wife and not reading this blog. For that matter, I shouldn't be writing it either.

Fortunately for me, my blogware allows me to change the post date and time. So, while the post may say that it was posted at 6:00am on the 11th of May, I'm actually writing it at 10:20pm on the 10th.

Happy Mother's Day!
