Twipping Is The Newest Internet Craze and My Question is Why?

Remember 'planking'.....the act of lying face down with your hands touching your sides at all times? Sure you do....in fact, you have probably tried it. The object became to plank in the most unusual place possible. Now, we have 'twipping', which is taking a selfie on your phone either having just, or in the process of falling down, then posting the picture on Twitter.

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.

Watch Baby Cry When Dad Shaves Beard

Our children know us by sound and by sight when they are babies. Change something about your appearance and your child might try and keep you at arms length and could be very unsure of you. My daughter Emily never knew me without a mustache and needless to say, when I shaved it...she was not happy and kinda freaked out when she was 18 months old.

Daughter Dances With Her Dying Father at Her Staged Wedding Reception

I have talked about dancing with my dad many times. Captain Morgan is THE best dancer. At BOTH my wedding receptions, dancing with my dad was one of my most emotional moments of the entire night. He has danced with me since I was a very little girl. I don't like to think about the day that I won't be able to dance with him. But, as he get's older, the reality of our dances ending is very real.

A friend of my family sent me this video. This young woman staged a VERY emotional wedding reception, Father/Daughter dance with her dad who is battling cancer to insure that she would NOT miss that special moment with him. The moment was recorded so that when her special day REALLY arrives, her dad will be there, dancing with her. I can TOTALLY understand. Grab a tissue before you watch it.
