Watch This Adorable Little Girl Learn About Stranger Danger

I Think My Ovaries Are Melting

For little Ye Bin, a.k.a. the Cutest Child Who Ever Lived, stranger danger is a little confusing. After all, why would you ever refuse someone offering you cookies? With her mom’s help, she eventually gets the idea, but not before stumbling through an adorable learning curve. [Huffington Post]

Parents Lip Sync “Frozen” Song Perfectly; Daughter Remains Unimpressed

Parents Lip Sync Song From Frozen; Daughter Is Unimpressed
Booooorrrrrrring!

If your life involves kids in any way, then you’ve probably had the “Frozen” soundtrack on constant repeat in the car, at home, on the computer, and even in your head. (Is “Let It Go” actually playing out loud right now, or does it just exist on permanent loop in your brain? You may never know.) These parents used all those repeated listens of the song “Love Is An Open Door” to memorize every syllable of it, and filmed a video of themselves absolutely nailing a dramatic lip sync while driving around with their kids. The best part, though, is their daughter in the backseat, who is thoroughly unimpressed by her parents’ antics. She literally yawns throughout the entire performance, which, as you’ll realize when you hit play, is quite a feat. [YouTube]

 

Tired Of People Asking When You’re Going To Get Married And Have Kids? Get A Mannequin Family!

She's Been Married To A Mannequin For 14 Years!

In a move I can only call brilliant, Starz Entertainment Group art director Suzanne Heintz shunned the traditional marriage and family life in favor of something far more unconventional. For the last 14 years, Heintz has been living with her strong but silent husband Chauncey and her never-rebellious teenage daughter Mary Margaret as part of an art project she calls “Life Once Removed.”

We’ve all been there: being needled by friends to “put yourself out there,” being pressured by family members to “settle down and have kids.” Enduring the same indignities, Heintz was thinking about her single life, walking past a retail liquidation store that sold mannequins when she said she realized, “I can buy a family!” And she’s been photographing their life together ever since — traveling all over the world with her family of “mute quadriplegics” and loving every minute of it. If that’s not unconventional enough for you, Heintz also has a real, live-in boyfriend of seven years, but has no interest in marrying him. Yet, she plans to renew her vows with Chauncey this June in front of friends, family and mannequins. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Kids Don’t Belong On Leashes

Frisky Rant: Kids Don't Belong On Leashes

On my way into work this morning, I had the displeasure of walking behind two women who, in each of their hands not clutching their coffee, held leashes that were harnessed to their respective children. Not dogs — children. The woman on the left had three kids, all on individual leashes, and the woman on the right had one child. All of the children appeared to around age five or younger. I am not a parent, and so I generally shy away from expressing my opinions about other peoples’ parenting choices, but if there is one thing that makes my blood boil, it’s parents who treat their children like they’re animals. And in my opinion, strapping a harness around a child’s belly and keeping them on a leash, even if it’s a leash meant for a human, is coming pretty damn close. Keep reading »

Four-Year-Old And Her Mom Flawlessly Recreate Red Carpet Dresses … With Construction Paper

4-Year-Old Girl Recreates Red Carpet Dresses With Construction Paper

See that little girl rocking a flawless — if slightly more crinkly — recreation of Lupita Nyong’o‘s Golden Globes dress? She’s known as Mayhem (coolest nickname ever? I think so), and she’s become something of an Instagram fashion icon for the amazing construction paper couture she and her mom, Angie, make together. Before the two started tackling red carpet gowns, they were making colorful dresses out of scraps of construction paper based on whatever fashion whim Mayhem had that day. Here are a few of them: Keep reading »

How To Prep For A Meeting With Bill Nye, According To A Fashion-Savvy 9-Year-Old Girl

Bill Nye Letter

Fourteen years ago, when author George Dyson was gearing up to meet Bill Nye The Science Guy, his 9-year-old daughter Lauren had some very important advice for him. So important, in fact, that it merited a letter with starred bullet points. My favorite is “Don’t wear sweatpants at ALL. Jeans are OK sometimes.” Applicable to so many situations. [Boing Boing]
