Two Year Old Has an Amazing, Unbelievable Basketball Shot [VIDEO]

My sons LOVE sports, especially basketball. Since they could hold a mini basketball in their hands, they were shooting a basket. They didn't always make it but I sure made a big deal when they did.

The parents of THIS kid must have blisters on their fingers from clapping so much. And even though the 'misses' are edited out, the shots are still pretty amazing!

84-Year Old Grandpa Plays XBox and Loves It [VIDEO]

My sons, and I am sure your kids too, are addicted to video games. They can spend hours sitting on their butts, staring at a screen, with their controller in hand - trying to beat the game and be totally content and happy. I just DON'T understand it. And I'm guessing that this grandpa couldn't understand it either...until he took control of the controller.

Dad Figures Out the Perfect Ponytail for His Daughter

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages, like the below video which is less than 10 seconds long but so educational.

Your Love of Energy Drinks Could Put You in the ER

It's about 3 o'clock...are you feeling a little sluggish and need a pick me up? Maybe an energy drink would come in handy right now...and maybe not. My 19-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter love to drink Monster and I have a friend who swears by his daily 5-Hour Energy drink. According to a new survey of U.S. hospitals, the number of trips to the emergency room that are tied to energy drink consumption has doubled over the last four years. Great, first no large sodas in New York City and now this - is there no end to the debauchery?

Half Pint Is All Grown Up and Now It’s Time to Say Goodbye

We have lived through her engagement, shower, wedding, post wedding drama, family issues, school, 21st b-day and graduation from college.

Are Your Kids Still Interested In Toys?

Christmas is now over and your kids might still have their toys scattered all over the place or maybe not. Remember the days when every Christmas there was some 'must have' toy that people would line up for days in advance to make sure they got one? Things like a Furby, Tickle-Me-Elmo or a Razor scooter were almost impossible to find at the height of their popularity. That doesn't seem to happen much anymore and manufacturers like Mattel and Hasbro are becoming very concerned.
