Oh my gawd, news came out that white noise machines could hurt babies ears and I freaked the funk out! A friend of mine who doesn't have kids just did NOT get my alarm and was all like, Is it really that big of a deal? Uh, yeah, it is a HUGE friggin' deal! Wait until you have a baby and can't get that baby to sleep and you are desperate. You'll do every dang thing you read about in all the baby books to get your baby to go to sleep and your baby will let you know with cries and wails that they don't give a damn what the baby books say, that they will stay awake all night long. See if you don't go running to your nearest retailer or app store to get yourself a white noise maker. You'll turn on that white noise and your baby will fall asleep and stay asleep and you will pray at the altar of white noise ever after. But not at the risk of hurting your baby's hearing. So what's up?

Newborn babies are awesome, but they are also really weird. Not in a bad way just in a totally weird, why doesn't anybody tell a new baby owner that the baby will indeed come with that new baby smell, but it will also come with a whole bunch of other stuff that really we should know about, but everyone keeps a secret. Well, I'm hear to de-secretize some of the best kept baby secrets. Are you ready for this?Continue Reading >
Parents, there's really no need to spend a ton of money on expensive toys! At least, not if your kids are anything like 15-month-old Kayden. The little girl recently had the life-changing experience of standing outside in the rain for the first time ever--and her overjoyed reaction is simply AMAZING to watch!
As can be seen the lovely video below, Kayden has never before felt the sensation of rain before. So when she finally gets to experience it, she doesn't quite know what to make of it. First, she seems a little baffled...but that confusion quickly turns to sheer delight—like the kind you see from kids on Christmas morning.
It's so great, you REALLY have to see it for yourself.

Let's be honest--we've all seen pictures of our Facebook friend's babies show up on our newsfeed, and we've ALL had our moments (even if it was for a hot second) when we've thought not so good things.

Okay, so I have to admit that when America's Funniest Home Videos puts together compilations of people getting smacked in their nether regions, I'm not all that into it, but some of their other compilations are hilarious. For example, this video that I'm dying for you to watch is not only funny, but ridiculously cute, and kind of sort of humorously cringe-worthy at times. It's about babies eating pasta. Babies + pasta = SO FUNNY!Continue Reading >
