Although the elf is supposed to keep an eye on your kids for Santa, I found proof that somebody needs to be keeping an eye on HIM!!!

Leslie Got a Priceless Gift on Her Birthday

My birthday was last weekend. I found out a couple of weeks before that I would be spending my birthday in Louisville, Ky. Would I be spending the weekend out of town because of a romantic trip my husband planned? You might even think it was a big party with some of my friends celebrating on Fourth St. No, it wasn't any of those ideas. Although BOTH of those ideas are amazing. (In different ways ;-) It was something even better.

Emotional Baby Reacting to Mom Singing is Too Cute

I sang to my kids from the very first moment I held them in my arms. Sometimes they would laugh and other times they reacted much differently. Especially the moments when I would rouse them out of bed with Opera vocals. (lol) But for the most part, they loved my singing...well at least I told myself that. :-)

This video was emailed to me (thank you Stephen and Larry) and it really struck a chord for me. I can't tell if the baby is emotional about the sad song or just sad that his mother is singing and smiles when he thinks she is finished. For my kids, it was usually the latter.

Dad’s Reaction to Son’s Improved Math Scores Will Make You Cry

I don't want to sound sappy, but this might be one of the most beautiful moments ever caught on video between a father and son. Sometimes I think as parents, we fall a little short in showing our kids how proud we are of their accomplishments, especially in school and when they might be struggling a bit. The kid in the below video is a student in England and really struggles in school.

Johnson’s Doesn’t Want Moms to Forget That They Are Doing Ok in Heartwarming New Ad

The best years of my life were spent as a stay at home mom. I will forever cherish those beautiful, blessed moments with my babies. I sometimes wish I could go back to those days, not to change anything but to appreciate them more. Now, when I try to call them and they don't pick up or I try to schedule time with them but they are too busy, I wish I had realized how wonderful those moments of singing, playing, crying, changing and feeding were before they were gone.But, isn't that how life is......

I recently saw this ad and I had to rewind it to watch it again and again, with a tissue.
