Daft Daddy is all about fitness for kids. It’s not a good thing when childhood obesity is at an all-time high and skinny jeans are in fashion. But a Canadian dance studio is causing a stir with its latest class – pole dancing for kids. They say there is nothing sexual about it. It’s for pure fitness, strength and fun. So the question is, would you let your kids take pole dancing lessons?
Exactly what triggers the start of labor remains a mystery. Much like how Snooki is a celebrity remains a mystery. But folklore holds that the weather may influence a baby’s arrival. With Hurricane Isaac making landfall, and two other storms brewing in the eastern Atlantic, some may be wondering if the Southeast is due for an increase in births. So can hurricanes really make pregnant women go into labor? Daft Daddy says that’s about as likely as Snooki’s baby being born sober.
If you are looking for a DVD for your baby that will allow you to pour and drink a tall glass of Scotch without being interrupted, that DVD would be Baby MacDonald: A Day on the Farm by Baby Einstein. This multiple award-winning DVD gives your wee one a fun-filled introduction to the sights and sounds of a farm, all while allowing you to have “Daddy time.” Baby MacDonald provides live-action images of farms and farm animals interspersed with engaging visuals of puppets, children, toys and real-world objects. It combines traditional nursery rhymes with the classical music of Schubert, Schumann and Strauss. This DVD has a calming effect on your baby - much like Johnnie Walker has a calming effect on you.
Daft Daddy Rated (5/5)
Ok, so the good people over at Disney last week gave Daft Daddy a sneak preview of the movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green. To be honest, I really had no idea what it was about. I was just happy to get out and see a movie. I think the last movie I saw in a cinema was Xanadu. No wait, it was Zapped with Scott Baio.
So I traveled to my least favorite city here in Orange County – Irvine. Every time I hear Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees,” I can’t help but think of Irvine. But I know a lot of you like Irvine, so I won’t get on my soapbox. You’re welcome.
The movie was playing at the Spectrum. Being I’m a world famous parenting blogger, Disney comped my ticket – which is just one of the many perks I receive with my celebrity blogger status. Its right up there with the free shampoo and conditioner I receive when I stay at a posh hotel, or the free individually wrapped mints I am given when I leave a classy restaurant – like Applebee’s.
I believe the idea behind Disney picking up the tab was so that I would write a glowing review of the film – which up to this point I believe I have.
Now I know it’s been a long time since I’ve been in a cinema, but loads of things have changed. First of all, movies are now in color. So that is awesome. But can somebody please tell me when they started selling sodas out of the popcorn tubs? I swear my soda was so big it should have come with its own lifeguard. I did however make one rookie mistake – and that was ordering Milk Duds. Now Milk Duds always sound like a good idea – until that first one gets stuck in the back of your teeth. So what do you do when that happens? Well naturally you eat another one, hoping that the new one will get stuck on the old one, thus freeing it somehow. Like it’s on some sort of Milk Dud rescue mission. But I have news for you my friends – that doesn’t work.
I’ll tell you else what doesn’t work, people talking on their phones during the movie. Now I can understand a phone ringing, but to answer it? Unless you’re Jack Bauer, it’s completely unacceptable to answer your phone during a movie.
Regardless, I still managed to enjoy myself and the movie. I just can’t stop talking about it.
The Musical Activity Walker by Fisher-Price should actually be called the Bad Musical Activity Faller. If you want your child to grow up in a wheelchair like Stevie on Malcolm in the Middle, or grow up liking crappy music like Creed or Daughtry, then this walker is for you. The first time your child uses this walker he will look like the falling skiier at the beginning of ABC’s Wide World of Sports. And the music is so bad they wouldn’t even play it in that Star Wars bar. So if you love your child, stay away from the Musical Activity Walker by Fisher-Price.
Daft Daddy Rated (2/5)
- Musical Activity Walker
- Music plays as baby walks/falls

A little boy can breathe a little easier after doctors removed a Lego from his nose that had been stuck up there for 3 years. Daft Daddy thinks Legoland should fly the kid and his parents out to Legoland California for all the trouble so he can enjoy the last few days of his summer vacation. After all, it’s a lot better than him spending the rest of his summer just sitting at home on his couch - undoubtedly picking his nose.
