Poor Kid Just Wanted Some Cake

November 17th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

It’s never fun when your child is sick, but what a bad day to happen to my little guy.

My oldest son, Michael, was invited to TWO birthday parties yesterday. Fortunately they were only 7 minutes apart and only overlapped by a half hour. SO we thought we would go to both. He was preparing all week. Talking about the fun he would have. The biggest thing was, he was hoping he would get a change to eat some cake. Then it struck him that he might even get to eat cake at BOTH parties.

Well, from the way this blog started, you know how that ended. While at the first party, (before the cake was served) my son complained that his tummy didn’t feel good. I said we could leave and as we were saying goodbye to the birthday boy’s mom, he puked…a lot. Poor thing. It also, I was holding him when he puked so, that was a little gross. As we were leaving, he said, “I think I’ll be better at the next party.” I had to tell him that there was no way we were going to the next party. Especially since it was one of those jumpy places. Poor guy’s cake dreams were dashed. But I could tell he was still not feeling well because he didn’t put up much of a fight.

So I took him back to Nana’s house, where mommy and little brother were, and he laid down for a nap. (Fortunately, Nana had just bought a Mickey Mouse toddler bed, so Michael got to nap in it. While everyone was napping, I ran home and changed out of my barf clothes. Then I came back with crackers, ginger ale and Jell-O. I came back and Michale had moved from the bed to the couch to be near mommy.

When I got there, it was time for mommy to feed baby brother, so I sat with Michael on the couch. Then all of a sudden and with no warning, Michael puked again. I scooped him up and carried him to the bathroom. Mommy suggested we have a nice warm bath to clean up. Oh, it should be noted that my clothes and I took the brunt of my son’s puke yet again. But more on that later.

So we bathed him, put him in some new Mickey Mouse pajamas, and gave him some ginger ale. We also tried to give him the Jell-O…the kid would NOT eat it. Is that crazy? What kid doesn’t like Jell-O? I think the problem is he didn’t like the look of it for some reason and when we tried to convince him he’d like it, he dug his heals in. So when he finally tasted it, he wasn’t going to back down. Stubborn little turd…reminds me of me.

Anyway, we finally got him home and in bed and he seems to be doing better. But back to me being barfed on twice in one day. When we were at Nana’s house, she was nice enough to let me wash my (and Micheal’s) barfed on clothes. In the meantime, she loaned me one of her outfits. So the one positive that came from all this is that now you all get to have this forever…

If you’re anything like my wife, you’re laughing hysterically right now. She actually says this picture doens’t let you appreciate how “crazy tight” those pats were. I told her I posed this way on purpose so that I wasn’t flashing the internet my junk. So enjoy that.

Dad’s Bad Wrap

November 16th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

I hate to live down to stereotypes, but I totally did. My oldest son and I are going to TWO birthday parties today (while mommy and the baby visit with grandma). SO we had to bring two gifts. Unfortunately it fell to me to wrap them.


Pictured: An 80’s sitcom prop

They always joke on those sitcoms, “Oh! You can tell dad wrapped that present.” Well in this case, you totally can. I don’t know why I hit a plateau in my ability to wrap presents in the 5h grade, but that’s the reality of my situation. You can always tell when a dad wraps the present because there’s always way too much tape


Next time, I’ll cut out the middleman and wrap the present in tape.

Oh and if you’re wondering why there’s no pictures of the other present, it’s because I said “screw it” and put it in a gift bag instead. 4 year-olds love opening gift bags, right? …oy.

A Better Ending of Thier Own

November 15th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

My wife and I are super tired today because instead of sleeping when the baby slept last night, we rewatched A League Of Their Own last night. I love this movie, but I’ve always hated the ending. Now, my sleep-deprived brain wants to analyze why the ending to A League Of Their Own is just the worst.

To refresh, (because if you haven’t already seen the movie, I wouldn’t read this blog) Dottie (Geena Davis) is on an all-women’s baseball team in the 40’s and the team has made it to the world series. As it happens, she doesn’t get a long well with her sister, Kit, (Lori Petty) who was traded from Dottie’s team to the team they are playing against in the World Series. Dottie quits the team before the first game of the World Series (because…reasons) and after 6 games, the series is tied 3 games a piece. Dottie comes back for game 7, hits a 2 run double off Kit, and has her team one out away from winning the series. Then Kit comes up to bat in the bottom of the 9th. Dottie is catching. Kit hits an in the park homer by knocking into Dottie at home plate where she drops the ball and Kit’s team wins. ANd that’s where we’re achieved suck.

Let’s start with the character of Kit. She’s annoying. She’s annoying through almost the whole movie. No disrespect to the actress playing her. That’s how she’s written…and they nailed it. She complains about everything Dottie does and doesn’t do. So when she switches teams mid movie and is now on the team playing AGAINST the Rockford Peaches, the team we’ve been watching and rooting for the whole movie, we’re not rooting for her team. We’re certainly not rooting for her. So when she’s called safe at home, why does a fanfare of triumphant, happy music play? (Side note: this is proof that Hans Zimmer DOES know what triumphant, inspiring music is supposed to sound like).

Plus, earlier in the movie, we saw Dottie get slammed into at home plate by someone MUCH bigger than Kit and she held onto the ball just fine. So are we supposed to believe she dropped it on purpose? That’s even worse. She had quit the team! Don’t come back just to throw the game so that you and your sister can have a make-up moment.

And about that “make-up” moment, after the game the two sisters talk and it seems like they are finally in a better place in their relationship. Then they hug like they are never going to see each other again. Then the very end is a reunion 50 years later and Dottie and Kit run into each other and hug like they haven’t seen each other since that game. SO what was all that making up for? Just to ignore each other for the next half century? How fulfilling.

Ok…I’m done. I just needed to grouse about the ending because it’s always left a bad taste in my mouth since a saw it way back in high school (yeah, I”m THAT old). Up until the ending I LOVE this movie. Tom Hanks is hilarious. Madonna is charming and I have never not loved Geena Davis in anything I’ve seen her in. So I’m not gonna cry too much over this ending. Especially since there’s no crying in baseball.

Arguing on Facebook…Again

November 14th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

As a comedian, I’m supposed to be using Facebook to promote my comedy, the podcast, and gain new fans. Yet all I seem to do is get into arguments with strangers. Today was no exception…

This was a news story you might have heard about where some Muslims asked if their holidays could be included in the school’s calendar since Christian and Jewish holidays were included. To be clear, they were not asking for the day off. They were not asking for the school to celebrate the holiday in any way. They were not asking to have the other holidays removed form the calendar. They just wanted to not be excluded. Or as some of the people on the comments for the article put it…

“Send them back where they came from”

“Merry Christmas to the Muslims, like it or leave!!!”

“Shame on you MARYLAND for allowing this attack on our children…”

After reading those comments, I wished my soul could take a shower. Hence I posted the above. But then an old girlfriend from high school responded…

Yes…that’s Cindy Crawford’s picture. What? You don’t think I could have dated Cindy Crawford in high school? Shut up!

But then a friend of a friend commented on my comment and that’s when I lost my cool…

Another lifelong Tim Babb fan recruited. I’m doin’ it!

TANchats – While Noah’s Away

November 13th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Taking a slight break from blogging about kid stuff, today I thought I’d give you a slice of TANcast in text form. The three of us group message all the time and sometimes they’re worth sharing.

Ok, that was not one of the ones worth sharing, but I only made you read that so you could appreciate this next one. The day Noah left on his trip for Thailand, we had this exchange…
