This Couple’s Hip Hop Birth Announcement Has Got Swagger

It's The Taylor Baby, Bitches!

It’s a special type of parent who is able to humiliate their child before he or she is even born. Jalene and Lincoln Taylor of North Salt Lake, Utah, are those parents — or shall I say, parents-t0-be.  The happy couple, who struggled with infertility and a miscarriage, announced their pregnancy with this sweet and lovably goofy hip-hop video, “Taylor Baby.”  The pair wrote the lyrics themselves and did the whole thing in eight hours! (If it’s the same Jalene and Lincoln, they also did a wedding video when they married two years ago, which is just as cute.) Their little baby is due in May. I’m sure the kid will be so impressed when it grows up that it won’t even mind Mommy and Daddy once made their own music video rapping “Where my babies at? Where my babies at?”  [TODAY]

Anyone got a baby a girl could borrow for a week or two? This video of ten-month-old Mary Lynne Leroux’s emotional reaction to her singing mother is enough to put me over the edge for the day. With emotion. There is just so much emotion to be had here! [via Gawker]

Teen Girl Commits Suicide After Her Parents Wouldn’t Let Her Log Onto Facebook

teen girl commits suicide because she can't log into facebook

Teenagers are known for having … shall we say, dramatic … reactions to things they don’t like. But this story is beyond tragic: a 17-year-old girl in India committed suicide after her parents would not let her log onto Facebook. The college sophomore’s parents chided her for spending too much time online and talking on the phone with her friends (both of which are basically what being a teen girl is all about) and “paying less attention to her studies,” according to the Wall Street Journal. After the argument, the daughter went into her bedroom and hung herself. Her parents are understandably shocked. Keep reading »

Mirror, Mirror: I Am Sexier As A Mom

I figured that after I had a baby my body would be like a soldier after war, with the proud, annoying battle scars that have a good story but don’t dress up well. A few things went differently than expected:

  1. I had a real baby, which is sort of impossible to imagine beforehand and sort of trumps everything else.
  2. I didn’t stop caring about the way I looked (this isn’t a story with a moral or something), but I was really busy caring a lot about other things.
  3. I looked surprisingly great.

No one ever talks about how you might feel sexy and beautiful after you have a baby. They talk a lot about how you might feel shitty and floppy and bad and you might have to work really hard to look good again and your belly might never ever be the same and the goal should be for everything to be the same as it was because that was so much better. It’s stressful, being pregnant and being yelled at by all of the headlines about pregnancy “YOU NEED TO START THINKING ABOUT HOW BAD YOU WILL LOOK AFTER YOU GIVE BIRTH!” Keep reading »

Poll: Should There Be An Age Limit For Mixed Martial Arts Fighting?

this-or-that-mma

This morning, I happened to stumble upon a CNN photo gallery of children partaking in a MMA fight … in a cage. Participants as young as age five are allowed to compete in the Thunderdome, where “they punch, kick, tackle and choke each other,” with their hands and feet.

I asked myself, “How many parents would actually let their kids do this?” The answer: a lot. Keep reading »
