Evil Genius Parent Award #39

Our spawnlings, Sinister (7) and Nefarious (4) are still a little young for Alien. Pity. Because we’re in the final month of #3’s tenancy and I’m feeling more and more like this: Now, being an Evil Genius is hard work. Some may consider it easier when you look like you […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #38

I’ve been holding on to this one for a few days – shared diligently by aspiring EG Parent Dallas F. See, the thing about parenting is everyone has an opinion. From the moment you mention you have spawned, everyone believes they have the best advice to give you. Of course, […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #37

You have to admire a parent who feels comfortable enough in their parenting to allow their minions write the blog entry this week. I just don’t think the world is ready yet for Sinister and Nefarious to publish just yet. Half the time, I don’t think I’m ready for their thoughts. And […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #35

The weather is crappy. Really really crappy. It’s cold, wet, and there’s only so much you can do in the confines of the Evil Genius Lair. BRING OUT THE BOARD GAMES!! EG History lesson – EG Dad and I are not known for our friendly, jovial, nature during board games. […]

However, I often wonder about exactly what needs to be in the EG First Aid kit. Bandages, band-aids, plaster tape – sure. We know all […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #33

It is that time of year again. If you’re North of the border, you’re hitting Summer Holidays. Zombies (teens with default “I’m bored” settings); Vampires (pre-teens with inability to earn their own money, drive themselves anywhere, and clean up own mess); and Trolls (creative parents on the web who brag […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #32

Father’s Day is approaching for minions in the United States of America. For Mother’s Day last month, EG Dad received a little robot vacuum cleaner. Yes, I know – EG MUM is supposed to receive on Mother’s Day, not EG Dad. But hey, this was given to him (a prize […]

Evil Genius Parent Award #31

Sometimes life is just too well-timed for my liking. Sitting back last week, and I find myself chortling along with EG Dad as he reads Big Family, Little Income. Apparently, there’s a bit of talk about the stereotyping of dads – particularly the portrayal of dads as dumb-arses. Don’t get […]
