OMG. Grumpy Babies! Spooked Babies! Babies being swallowed by tutus!

So, the cute baby picture contest just ended. Nearly 600 of the most spectacularly funny, cute, and pissed off babies had me laughing for hours while I sorted through and edited my favorites for today’s post. When I was done, I had 223 that I couldn’t live without. Then I somehow slashed that down to 174. And then eventually I gritted my teeth and got it down to 150 even.The problem is, I LOVE BABIES. And every single one of the pics I wanted to keep and share in an SDL post. But let’s be honest… 600 pictures… that’s a lot to sort through as a reader.So, I’m going to do five afternoon posts over the next 2-3 weeks with 30 of my favorites in each one. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Every single one I found myself narrating or giving my voice to the baby. So, I might as well continue that here!  Continued on next...

The Funniest Crap Being Passed Around Facebook

I've been keeping my eye on that sneaky 'ol Facebook, and it keeps trying to slip stuff by me. I'm too quick for it, though, and was able to grab these goodies being passed around over the past month or so. Enjoy. This is the best crap I see being passed around Facebook!We'll start with a couple of the more uplifting and sentimental ones because, let's be honest, they just won't be awesome if they're mixed in with the insanely funny ones.And now... the insanely interesting and outrageously funny ones... To me, anyway. Warning. These use the "B-Word" a couple times.  CONTINUED ON THE NEXT PAGEOh my gosh. The world is full of comic geniuses, isn't it? Which were your favorites and have you seen any of these being passed around FB before? Oh, and if you want to make everybody else in the whole world laugh their faces off the way you and I just did, be sure and share this...

Ceiva, the company that was giving away those spectacular sharable digital picture frames... they gave me a coupon code you can use if you wanna, you know, get one for somebody for Christmas or something. $25 off. Not too shabby, especially considering that they don't do...

And you thought YOUR dreams were weird?

Dreams. I've had a lot of weird ones. Some that were absolutely insane. Like the time I dreamed that I was sitting with an ostrich, a hippo, and a giraffe in a hot tub, and the hippo turned to me and said, "dude, somebody's gotta tell the ostrich to scram." I was too chicken because this particular ostrich was well known for pecking people's eyes out. The giraffe told me to man up and grabbed the ostrich by the neck, swung him around his head, and threw him across the parking lot. Oh, did I mention the hot tub was in the middle of a parking lot?And that got me to thinking... would it be as funny or weird to hear about other people's "craziest dreams?" So, I asked you on Facebook to share your craziest dream in 40 words or less. These are the first half of your hilarious, weird, and somewhat disturbing replies.When I was pregnant. I dreamt...

You said WHAT to your kid?

Oh man. You know what we haven't done in FAR too long? A "You said WHAT to your kid?" post. Am I right? Today I'm just in the mood to laugh my butt off, how about you?Some time ago, on Single Dad Laughing’s Facebook Page, I posted a simple question. “What is something you’ve found yourself saying to a child that you never thought you would? The answers that came in have had me rolling on the floor ever since. Here are a few of them for your uninhibited laughing pleasure. All just as innocent as the moments that made them.Today's list comes 100% from the comments left on previous "You said WHAT to your kid?" posts.Stop licking your brothers butt. I don't care if the cup fits in the toilet- you may not drink the water! No honey! we don't play with skulls. I don't care if you don't like it, I'm getting that booger out of there! Just because you have one,...

Your Happiest

During the last photo contest here on Single Dad Laughing, participants shared their "happiest moment" photos. Every time I scrolled through the entries I felt like I was slapped across the face with a serious happy stick. It was almost like the ultimate "Beautiful You."Anyway, hundreds of entries came in, winners were announced, prizes shipped (or being shipped!). Today, I just wanted to repost my favorite forty! Whittling it down to forty was tough, but these are the 40 that really just made my day.I'll start with the first one, my favorite two photos in the entire competition...Those two photos just had me laughing out loud they were so awesome.Anyway, I easily could have added another hundred photos to today's post, so don't feel bad if yours didn't make it. These were just my favorite. Anybody else doing the picking probably would have picked 40 different photos for 40 different reasons!Here are my other favorites...Dan Pearce, Single Dad LaughingPS. Which were...

Your Dad Was Right

On Single Dad Laughing's Facebook Page, I asked the question "what was the best advice your father ever gave you that you really didn't want to believe?" The responses were fantastic, brilliant, funny, and downright awesome! Enjoy...Oh, and don't try and click like on the individual responses. These are just screen captures! Unless, that is, you enjoy clicking on things that don't actually do anything. What was the best advice your father ever gave you that you really didn't want to believe?

When it’s cool NOT to like things…

I was musing with my buddy Dave a while back about things or people that become "the cool thing to not like." We came up with several of our own, but I decided to post it to the Facebook wall and see what the masses came up with and what most people agreed was cool to NOT like. The discussion which pursued had me rolling, so I thought I'd share that with you here on Single Dad Laughing. It also taught me not to knock New Kids on the Block. Ever. Enjoy... (oh, and just so you know, these are all screen captures. You can't actually click "like" on any of them.)Dan Pearce, Single Dad LaughingPS. What else is cool NOT to like? And an even better question, what do you like even though it's cool not to like it?

Real Dad Moments #3 of 3

Well, the Real Dad Moments photo contest ended a couple weeks ago, and was the most participated in contest yet. The day before yesterday, yesterday, and today I'd like to share my favorite 90 entries in the competition (30 each day as bonus afternoon posts). There were so many great photos. So many beautiful moments. So many tender and awesome bits of your lives that you shared. Looking through the 800 or so photos made me so happy because it was a beautiful reminder of all the real dads out there. It was a poignant reminder that fatherhood is not defined by race, beliefs, or social status. Good and real dads come in every shape, color, and size. I hope these photos make your day just a little brighter. I know they did mine. Enjoy.Thanks to everybody who participated! I'll be launching a new contest in the next little bit, so stay tuned!

You said WHAT to your kid? (#5)

On SDL's Facebook page, I posted a simple question. "What is something you've found yourself saying to a child that you never thought you would? The answers that came in have had me rolling on the floor ever since. Here are a few of them for your uninhibited laughing pleasure.You cannot ride your sister! Please stop playing with mommy's bottom. We don't pee on animals or people. Please stop dancing like a stripper! Stop brushing your hair with the toilet brush. We don't dance while we're eating pickles. Cat's have whiskers for a reason. Please don't cut them off. It's wrong to give mommy a wedge. Put that squirrel down! Where did you get that?! Honey, we don't choke our cousin. Keep it up and you won't get to read tonight! Yes, we have to wear pants while guests are over. We do not put our private parts on the kitty! Don't pick your nose with your toes. If you eat your booger again, it's going to be all you get for snack! Why...

Me in YOUR dreams.

I have to laugh. A lot. Many readers have emailed me over the past eleven months and shared some very random, very interesting, and sometimes very scary dreams they had that I was in. Today, I just want to share some of those emails with you. I edited a few of them for typos and grammar."So I just had to share a dream I had last night that you were in. I dreamt that I was riding a bus in the city (which is weird cause I don't ever ride the bus), and I looked over and you were sitting there with your Boston hat covering your eyes, trying not to be noticed. I was trying to decide whether or not to say hi, and when I looked at you again, you had taken your t-shirt off and were trying to convince some homeless guy that he should trade shirts with you. You noticed that I was looking at...

Kids Uncensored #3

A little while back, I asked you on Twitter and Facebook "what is the funniest thing you've ever heard a kid say?"Here are your responses, uncensored and unedited, all just as innocent as the children who said them! More than 900 responses came in. Plenty to last us for at least a "few" years posts here on Single Dad Laughing.My 5 year old told me the other day, "when you get old you can live with me." What about dad, I asked. "Him too, but you each get your own room so when he toots in bed you don't have to smell it." While trying to ask for a tissue, my three-year old said, "can I have a tennis shoe?" My 6 year old: Mom do you know what rhymes with seven?" Me: "What?" Son: "Heaven" Me: "Right. Do you know what heaven is?" Son: "Yes I do! You know world 7 on Super Mario Bros where they are up in the clouds? That's...
