We have been talking about Dysaffirmations all week; how we use them with our kids, our significant others, and how much chaos they bring to us. But each of those little dysaffirmations is a symptom of what we consider to be our big dysaffirmation, our core dysfunctional belief that serve as the queen to all of our other little crazies.Read more
There was a guy one night on a dark deserted road that got a flat tire and realized he had no jack. In the distance he saw a light and thought to himself, ‘Maybe it’s a house’. He started walking towards the light and as he got closer he realized he was correct and thought, ‘Maybe they have a jack’. As he approached the yard he saw that there were several cars parked in front and thought, ‘One of these cars must have a jack.’ As he walked up the walkway he thought, ‘What if these guys are a bunch of dicks and won’t let me borrow it?’ As he knocked on the door he became angry at the thought. By the time the door opened he was fuming and said ‘Shove your jack up your ass’.Read more
It’s a Dysaffirmation week and we are enjoying the sideways glances from all. Yes, we know your dirty little secret. Our Dysaffirmations are funny but some are so true. When people bitch and moan about the truth, we simply point to what people believe. If you repeat it enough times, it becomes true. If your parents or other significant life figure tells you enough times, it becomes true. Just ask Mel Gibson.Read more
Woe is the parent who parents like their parent. Unfortunately, that’s all we know really. At a certain age, we decide ‘I will never do to my kids what my parents did to me,’ and yet sometimes we can’t help it. Like romantic relationships, we model ourselves after our parents even if it’s trying to be their antithesis.Read more
After last week’s insanity of putting on a radio show and campaigning for Mother of All Bloggers, we decided that this week we wanted to get back to the roots of what this blog is all about. This is CoupleDumb. The word dumb is right in the name. So, this week we are going to look at the stupid things that people do to screw up their relationship, their families, their children and themselves.Read more

As the country prepares to take their Mommy’s out for a loud brunch on Sunday after waiting in line for hours with starving children that make women seriously consider never being found in this predicament, our attention is drawn to something much more important. Sure, we can celebrate our mothers any day of the week by cleaning our rooms, being successful or wearing clean underwear, but how often do we receive the incredible gift of a new Star Trek film?Read more

It’s Mother’s week on CoupleDumb! With all the hubbub surrounding Lee being chosen as a finalist for Mom Logic’s Mother of all Bloggers contest (VOTE NOW!) and our radio show on Thursday for Mom’s Nite Out, who has time to write and rant? Unfortunately for the children of the world, there are still Moms who deserve the smackdown and we would be shirking our responsibility to our public if we didn’t say it like it was. So, today’s Celebrity Smackdown is for a mom who we feel is not only doing a disservice to her child but to all our kids. As parents of a child diagnosed with a Spectrum Disorder (Autism and its friends), we understand how devastating it is to know that your child will not be able to function like other kids. So please take a peak at our open letter to Jenny McCarthy.Read more
