Be My Boyfriend: Guy Who Built An Adult-Sized Version Of The Little Tikes Coupe

Adult Size Version Of Little Tikes Car
Dream Car Status!

Dear John Bitmead, AKA The Guy Who Built An Adult-Sized Version Of The Little Tikes Coupe,

When I was growing up, my youngest brother had a Little Tikes coupe car, and my other brothers and I delighted in having him drive it up to the edge of this small cliff by our driveway, and then pushing him off. He never got seriously hurt, but we thought it was so funny to watch this happy, bright-colored little car careening down a craggy hillside with our tiny brother inside, screaming, “Damn you, Dr. Nebulous (or whatever our villain name was that day)!”

What I’m trying to say is that I’ve always gotten a lot of joy out of Little Tike coupes, so when I found out that you had created an adult-sized version, that runs on gasoline and is totally street legal, well, it made me want to date you and push you off a cliff. Could we arrange something like that, please?

XOXO

dad does daughters hair

It’s not hard to understand why this picture went viral: 39-year-old Doyin Richards and his kids are pretty damn cute. As Doyin explained on his blog, Daddy Doin Work, his wife usually does his two-year-old daughter’s hair in the mornings but one day she was running late. He was on paternity leave in October, when the picture was taken, and offered to style the girl’s hair. His wife scoffed. So he set up a camera to capture himself with their six-month-old strapped in a pouch and the little girl getting her hair did by Daddy. Once it got picked up by The Good Men Project, it quickly went viral. But a picture like this, while adorable, shouldn’t be extraordinary. It should just be parenting. Keep reading »

Aww: Missouri Grandfather Uses His Social Security Check To Build Dollhouses For Disadvantaged Kids

This holiday season, a dozen Missouri kids whose parents couldn’t afford gifts received an ornate, handmade dollhouse, all thanks to an 81-year-old retiree named Earl Hurshman. For the past year, Hurshman has been using nearly all of his monthly social security checks to buy dollhouse supplies at his local hobby store, and assembles the miniature Victorians, Tudors, and Colonials (plus fire stations and barns for boys) in the basement of his modest home. He finds recipients for his dollhouses by putting up flyers and asking around the community for families that might need some help with gifts. “He is a real angel on earth,” says the mother of a dollhouse recipient. “Earl makes me want to be a better person. There’s no way I’ll ever be able to repay him, but I’ll pay it forward.” As if Hurshman’s heartfelt deeds weren’t touching enough, wait until you hear the reason he started doing it… Keep reading »

Mommie Dearest: 5 Questions To Ask If You Think You Want To Have Kids

Mommie Dearest: 5 Questions To Ask If You Think You Want To Have Kids

Earlier this week, Jessica asked the question that passes through the mind of many a woman: How do you know — really know — if you want to have kids? It’s a good question and an important one. Kids are a big decision. They’re not like those cute, fuzzy chicks people buy as gifts on Easter only to realize that they grow up to be chickens, so they just return them or get rid of them somehow. No. Kids are a bit more complicated than that.

But is there actually any way to know for sure? You would think as the mother of a 7-year-old, who has been-there, done-that, and has pondered the same questions Jessica brought up, I would have at least some answers. But unfortunately, I don’t.

Because, if there’s one, solid rule that I’ve figured out in my short time parenting, it’s that there’s no one right answer that will fit everyone across the board. What works for one woman/couple/family may not work for another. And that’s okay. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How Do You Know, Really Know, You Want To Have Children?

I have a couple of girl friends whom I really envy. They know exactly what they want — or rather, what they don’t want.  They don’t want to have children.  Two of my girl friends are childless by choice, which means that while they enjoy being involved in the lives other people’s children, they have no interest at all in becoming parents of their own. There isn’t a doubt in either of their minds that kids are not a possibility.

My own feelings on the subject are much more hazy. Keep reading »
