I'm Doug Moe, an Actor/Comedian at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre where I also teach improv.

I blog about the absurdity of parenting at Man Vs Child and I tweet here: @dougmoe.

SAVOR THE MOMENT
Savor the moment.  Savor every precious moment!  They grow up so fast.  Savor the hugs, savor the kisses, even savor the tears.
Savor the diapers.  Soon they’ll be walking, so savor the crawling.  Savor the tantrums, savor the screaming!
Savor the complaining, savor the broken toy, bought a week ago.  I hope you didn’t get ANGRY!  Try SAVORING instead.  
Savor.  Savor.  Savor!  Savor every goddamned moment, you ungrateful lout.  Were you hoping to put them to bed early instead of savoring them?  I’m not sure you’re getting this savoring thing.
Maybe someone else should be savoring, since you’re so bad at it!  No?  Okay, then make with the SAVORING.  Bad parents are bad at savoring.  Good parents are good at savoring.  You’re not a bad parent, right?
Savor it all!  Slather yourself in savoring, pour that hot soup of savoring in your lap and slosh it around in your pants.  Smile, you POS non-savorer! Let the savoring wash over like you’re a pig on a platter being basted in your own savory sauces.
Savor the moment.

Back to School
It’s the first day of school today and it’s so great to see so many happy, smiling faces, so much energy and enthusiasm.  And that’s just the parents!  WHAT THE.
Seriously though, who is happier that school has started again:  the kids or the parents.  My daughter is excited to see her friends and as far as I’m concerned, they can have her.  The last few weeks of this waning summer have been trying.  Not quite “put-her-in-a-bag-and-throw-her-in-a-river” trying, but close.  In my sympathetic moments, I understand that her whining and complaining is probably an outward cry for attention and a way of coping with stress about school starting again.  Or else it’s evidence of our poor parenting.  But it’s been maddening.  And so I am glad to be rid of her for a part of the week.
It doesn’t feel good to say that, but I think it’s okay.  People get sick of each other, right?  I do.  You love your weird friend Charlie, but in small doses right?   My daughter’s less weird and the dose is larger.  But I’ve OD’ed lately on the begging and complaining and whining.  Maybe our second grade teacher can reform her.  
If you’re tired of your kid, rejoice!  School is back in session and soon you will start loving them again.

This is not me. This is a comedian and actor named Doug Moe who you may recognize from roles on shows such as 30 Rock and Rescue Me. Or not. Maybe you’re more of a book person. I don’t know. Anyway, he Tumbls about dad-like stuff at manvchild.
He also created a show about his experiences as a father called Doug Moe Is A Bad Dad, which plays mostly in NY. But, Angelinos can catch it at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Hollywood tomorrow night.
Of the show, ImprovisationNews.com said, “Doug Moe may be a Bad Dad, but his show is pretty damn good.” Of course, with a publication name like that, I assume all their reviews are improvised.
The show is at 8 p.m. and tickets are a paltry $5, so lock the kids in the closet with a bowl of kibble and check it out.

Big thanks to The Daddy Complex for linking to my blog.  If you’re in LA, please try to come to my show!  It’s been mentioned in the NY Times, it’s been a Cool Mom Pick, and profiled on A Child Grows.
If you’re new to Man Versus Child, might I suggest my Angry Birds Lessons?  Or my 50 Essentials For Every Man’s Diaper Bag?
