The folks who run multi-billion-dollar companies also love to collect things like airlines, islands and politicians. Since the primary function of this job is to proclaim, “I want that!” about seemingly unattainable things, kids would fit into this role nicely. They’ve honed this skill at toy stores, ice cream parlors, gift shops and dog pounds—even ones they’ve just seen as they drive by. It’s moot whether they do it from a minivan or the back of a limo.
I did a thing for How To Be A Dad where I suggest some jobs could best be filled by kids.

Robin Williams’ death has put so many things in perspective about my life.
Charlie writes about his relationship with his father, told through the lens of one of Robin Williams’ greatest films.
We’re having an adventure! In L.A. traffic!
One of those times you’re left wishing that you’d purchased that bicycle built for two and gotten Charlie Capen’s new address. Heck, I’ve even got the song composed in my mind.Charlie, CharlieGive me your answer, doI’m half (ok, totes) crazyAll for the nudes (in a totally non-lewd way) of youI’ll even try to manageNot to peak at your undercarriageCuz you’ll look sweetOn the seatOf a bicycle built for two.(But, Gurrrl, it’s June in California. That seat’s gonna be warm so I’d bring along a towel.)
Charlie, I hope you say, “Yes!” Cuz the only other person I know who’d gladly ride naked through the streets of LA is thedaddycomplex and you know he’ll wanna bring along one of those damn puppets.
Gurrrl, you don’t even wanna know where he perches that thing when he’s nude bike riding. Adds new meaning to the phrase, puppet-on-a-stick.
In all seriousness, I know the last few days have been stressful for Charlie & his family. I’m glad to read things went well. Hopefully this post will bring a much needed smile during a stressful time. Oh, why was the thedaddycomplex mentioned in this post? I just threw him in cuz, well, when you think of nude bike riding and puppets who else would logically come to mind?
He’s right. To me, nude biking and puppets just go well together.
Tired papa + recovering monkey. Thank you for your well wishes and thoughts today on Arden’s surgery. Your support made a huge difference. He’s tired, cranky and recovering. Like his parents. via Instagram http://bit.ly/1kvkAEU
Yay! Glad to hear everyone’s okay.
Want to give all-around good guy Charlie a birthday gift? Go like the How To Be A Dad Facebook page. Or babysit his kids for the night. Or both.

If you haven’t figured it out already, a large part of being a parent is dealing with idiots. Now, now, I’m not talking smack about your kid…
The folks over at The Stir posted a post about a post I posted with how2beadad.
