Sex and Blue’s Clues

It’s Tuesday at CoupleDumb where we are giggling to ourselves. You see, today we are talking about having sex when you have children. The most searched keywords for the previous sentence are ‘sex’ and ‘children’ which means there are going to be some very disappointed perverts trying to find their kiddy porn and getting us instead. So indulge us as we bump up our readership by saying sex, sex, sex, sex, sex.

Shadows of a Parent

It’s Tuesday and we are talking shadows this week. Tuesdays are dedicated to our relationships with our children, parenting and just being a child. When we decided to discuss shadows this week, Tuesday became a very important day. Why you ask? Simply put, most of our shadows are created in childhood. Some of you are reacting to this negatively and are thinking, ‘Oh jeez, here comes the inner child crap’ or ‘why the hell would you look for a shadow?’ To these questions we say, are you comfortable living an unexamined life?

Bring Out Your Dead

So have you bought your Grandparents a gift for Sunday? How about a card? Have you tried the recording?

Happy Tuesday everyone! As we all get settled into our routines with the kids being back in school, we can start to see our hectic schedules for the next few months.

The shoulds of parenting.

It’s Tuesday and you should know that this week we are discussing a dirty word. Is it the dreaded ‘F’ word that will get you fined on the radio? Nope. Is it the ‘C’ word that makes women cringe and grab the closest bat? Nope. It is the ‘S’ word and we ain’t talking shit. That’s right! We are talking the dreaded ‘should’ and as parents we are so full of them it may as well be the other ‘S’ word.

Homeschoolers, meet you at 3pm in your kitchen.

It’s August 4th and if you are like us, you are eagerly counting the minutes until your kids go back to school. Will you miss them? Sure, but you will quickly get over it when you can hear yourself say a complete sentence without being interrupted by the Mommy/Daddy broken record or having to yell ‘Stop hitting/chasing/tickling/teasing/sitting on your brother/sister!’ We are looking forward to it with the same anticipation of a kid waiting for Santa. Besides, being in school is where our kids will experience the majority of success/failure in their young lives. Ah, the joys of being a kid.
