Potential Book Titles and Watermelon Explosions

I bet the best parts of writing a book are finishing it and deciding on the title.  The problem with finishing it is that it takes a bunch of work.  Deciding on a title doesn’t take near the time commitment or talent that writing a whole book takes.  I don’t know if I will ever actually write a book but these are some of my title ideas of I ever get off the schnide and make it happen.

  • Waiting in the Car While My Wife Runs Into the Store and Other Ways Parenthood has Increased My Carbon Footprint
  • 72 Band-aids and Plenty of Apple Juice, A Parent Survival Kit
  • Parenting With Fruit Snacks (Little Bags of Shut the Hell Up)
  • Honey, the Kids are Finally Asleep, We can Finally Break Out the Good Snacks
  • Toddlers with Sharpies and Other Reasons I Should Have Become a Hostage Negotiator
  • Told My Kid to Shut Their Cry Hole and Other Reasons I May Not Get That Parent of the Year Trophy
  • Not Letting Them Put Princess High Heels on the Dog and 2,346 Other Ways I Ruin My Kid’s Lives
  • 37th Time Is A Charm: Tips On Putting Your Toddler To Bed and Other Parenting Pearls of Wisdom
  • Cutting The Dog’s Hair is Never an Accident, Our Children Are Liars

I love my kids and I love being a dad; choosing to laugh instead of cry at some of the ways parenthood challenges you has been a good decision for me.  If any real life writers out there need a poorly thought out title that is likely a run-on sentence hit me up.

I hope everyone has had a good summer and I appreciate folks still stopping by to read even when it has been ages since I have written anything.  I have done a few cool things though this summer and wanted to share one of them.  Watch all the way to the end to see the big pay off, definitely sweet.


About Simon

I am a husband and a dad of two little girls. I am a lone Y chromosome and am already planning my escape strategy to deal with the estrogen flood that is on its way. People say there is a lot of joy to be found in the simple things and I have found they can provide a healthy dose of anti-awesome as well. I am, in general, a pretty optimistic guy and needed a bit of a creative outlet; so here it is. Thanks for stopping by. View all posts by Simon
