WHAT WOULD DADS DO?

While we can’t disclose any of the details quite yet, we wanted to write a little post to prep you for a v exciting announcement that we are poised to make in the coming weeks. It’s an announcement that signifies a changing day in our careers. An announcement that legitimizes the insane amount of work…

DEAR AMANDA

Dear Amanda, We have never met and probably never will. This note to the ex-girlfriend thing has been done before – it’s tired and unoriginal – regardless, I had to write to you. Today while my baby napped, my husband and I slow danced in our kitchen to Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You.” While we…

A LOVE LETTER TO DADS

Three-year-olds are exceptional conversationalists. Sure, their base-level understanding of most things can sometimes be a source of parental confusion (and/or entertainment), but every once in awhile, a toddler can hit you with a statement so extraordinary, it feels like they’ve taken a pin and popped your already over-filled heart, causing an emotional fallout that starts…

PATIENCE IS A (MOTHERS?) VIRTUE

Is it just me, or are some guys, like, one thousand percent less patient with their kids – specifically of the three-year-old variety – than their female partners in procreation?

Now that I’ve procreated, there’s one more…

MEET THE REBEL PAPA JERSEYS

Sometimes Aleks and I sit down and look at our “To Do” lists and die of laughter. There are lots of adjectives out there you could use to describe us… and ambitious-as-hell is definitely one of them! The good thing about that, though, is that we’re starting to get really good at taking ideas and…

TO THE DADS WHO ARE DOING THE DAMN THING

Happy Rebel Papas Day – The day we get to tell you just how much we appreciate everything you do to make our family units thrive. Sometimes with young children running around, making messes, throwing tantrums, etc., it’s easy to forget to stop, and to take a step back, and to thank you for being…

MEET THE REBEL PAPAS

With Father’s Day just 2 days away, we thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse into the dudes behind the Rebels. Meet Jeff and Anthony – Aleks and my partners in parenting crime respectively. They’re hard-working, loyal, adorable (even though they drive us mental from time to time) AND they’re awesome dads…
