Whenever I watch one of those videos of a child reuniting with a parent who's been on deployment, I always end up dissolving into a sobbing mess of happy tears. But one mom's recent method of introducing her baby to her army dad for the first time ever might just be my absolute favorite.
Nebraska woman Logan Tesar gave birth to her and husband Cole's baby girl, Harper, while he was still overseas and the father-daughter duo had never been together in person. So when they went to pick up Cole after his 9-month-old deployment to Afghanistan came to an end, Logan decided to create a special sign for the occasion—and it's pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen. Check it out after the jump!Continue Reading >
Having a child is a huge responsibility. I know that's a big (and obvious) understatement, but it's also something that's easy to forget in between work, chores, and the general day-to-day craziness of your life.

At this point, I'm pretty sure everyone knows that breast milk is the healthiest choice for babies--your obstetrician, your pediatrician, your best friend, your third cousin, have probably all spouted the virtues.
Before I became a mother, I had no intention of ever breastfeeding, but once pregnant, the evidence of the greatness of breast milk was just too convincing to ignore. So of course, I gave it a whirl and my son was lucky to get 13 months of the good stuff. He hardly ever got sick during that time, turned into a fabulous eater of solid foods afterwards, and has always been ahead of the curve developmentally. The benefits of breastfeeding are awesome, but the milk itself is even more fascinating than most of us realize. Here are five cool facts about breast milk you might not have heard:Continue Reading >
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is one of the most anticipated magazine covers by men everywhere. Celebrity models such as Kate Upton, Tyra Banks, and Brooklyn Decker have become household names after gracing the cover years before. This year for the 50th anniversary of the issue it looks like it's going to be Barbie's turn. Yeah, you read that right, Barbie--as in the DOLL.

But the 1,000 specal issues featuring the doll are a little creepy... to say the least.Continue Reading >

This may just be one of the sickest videos I've seen in a while! It shows a toddler--she can't be older than 3--sucking on a cigarette a few times before blowing out dark smoke. A man, whom we're assuming is her father, seems to be giving her instructions as to how to smoke. The video is only about 10 seconds long, but it will break your heart when you see it.Continue Reading >
The Super Bowl pitting the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos against each other is just days away and it seems like people are going all out in preparing to root for their team. Case in point? One Seahawks-loving couple recently decided to honor their favorite football team ahead of the big game by naming their newborn daughter after it!

There are some bizarre toys out there on the market, but the latest doll created for girls by Spanish-based company Famosa is one of the strangest I've seen yet. Why? Instead of closing its eyes to sleep or sitting on a potty like some other dolls do, this one has an especially weird gimmick: refusing to eat!
If that sounds inappropriate to you, you're not the only one. The doll is stirring all kinds of controversy among parents, many who claim the doll encourages unhealthy behaviors.Continue Reading >
Nap time is something many parents look forward to, if only because it gives us an opportunity to have an hour or two to uninterrupted. But for Australian mom Kate Oliver, it also means a chance to get creative and play dress-up.
It all started a while back, when Oliver spotted her son napping on the couch and realized it would make a perfect backdrop for a photo shoot. Luckily for her, all of her three sons are heavy sleepers so they didn't even flinch when she started adding props around them, like a bow-tie here or a hat there. And the results are so sweet and funny, you just have to see them!Continue Reading >
