The Daddy Complex

Time for another episode of Discussing News With My Kids.

This week, Wyatt and Boone offer their perspective on current events like the Ice Bucket Challenge, a possible update to YouTube’s strict policy on children’s accounts, and the decline of the “celebrity scent.”

And, as always, it’s short. So, y’know, watch it and stuff.

So, listen. We don’t do a ton of giveaways. But this one is pretty cool. Basically, you post about the moment you found you were becoming a dad (or, your babydaddy was becoming one), use the hashtags #Dadchelor and #MikesHard (not that kind of hard), and submit them on this handy little entry thing below — you’re entered! Sound good?

I read all about how you dealt with your sons toddler years, but now that I have one I can't remember anything besides whiskey. Any advice on how to stay sane besides whiskey? More whiskey? I just. Nope. So pretty when she sleeps.

Just do whatever gets your through. But, always—ALWAYS—make time for yourself. Make sure to call in favors or whatever you need to carve out some opportunities for you to go see a movie, go on a date, have an adult conversation, sleep or whatever helps you.

It’s not selfish. It’s vital to your health and the health of your kid.

Just a couple of dads talking about the stuffs. Thanks for hanging out thedaddycomplex, whithonea & Andy Herald.

So, funny story.

At, like, 8:59 pm last night, us dads who were prepped and ready to do the #emprov thing got a message from bestnatesmithever (via his phone) saying his Internet service provider was experiencing an outage. We decided to postpone the Q&A/improv/sketch thing for that reason.

But, since me, Charlie and Andy were all still ready to go, we invited Whit to join us for an impromptu (and, dare I say, funny) discussion of things parenting and beyond.

No plan, no script, no sobriety.

We’re rescheduling the #emprov event. In the meantime, enjoy four dads shooting the shit.

Well, Dish Network is having an outage and my internet does not work. This show is postponed until another Sunday. Sorry everyone!

EVERYONE! Imagine the Price Is Right loser jingle:

BAW-baw-ba-baw! Baaaaaaaaaaw.

That’s us.

And by that, I mean humanity.

BUT! We’re doing a non-E-MPROV hangout. NOW! Join us.
