A Gift Guide For The Cool Kid

I remember waking up on Christmas morning and tip-toeing down the long hallway to the living room where the tree was. Perhaps my memory has been colorized with hues of nostalgia but I can recall that the room glowed. The presents were everywhere and for good measure, Santa would usually leave a gift in the fireplace as if he dropped it or it was an after-thought. After that it was a day filled with board games and sad memories of a Gnip Gnop Game that never quite worked. Here are some gifts that are going to make the room glow for your kids!

Lee’s Christmas List

To enhance and promote the mystery that is me, I am asking Santa for the following gifts:

Paul’s Christmas List

Christmas is a special time of year when I can shed my nice guy image and become petulant and demand gifts.

We do all this while we do our normal, everyday work and child rearing. How do we it? How do we do this while remaining as calm as possible while still enjoying our family and friends?

Churning Butter This Christmas

CoupleDumb talks sex on a regular basis. We believe that loving couples can have amazing sex lives regardless of whether they have kids, demanding jobs or even if they have been married a long time. Believe us, we have the trifecta! However, it is so hard to maintain that rah rah mentality when national publications promote and publish articles that contradict everything that is known about good sex, especially when they use a poll to ‘prove’ their data.

Coming For Christmas

Last April and May we did a series on what we termed, “The Tired Parents Guide to Good (Quick) Sex”. The response was overwhelming. Now, with the stressors of the holidays, it is more important than ever to connect with your partner. This week we have been advocating sex as a stress reliever. Consider an orgasm as a natural tranquilizer; it releases endorphins which our bodies own Xanax. Here is a reminder of the ever important orgasm for both men and women.
