Timberbaby is here and Chris Hemsworth’s flying with children nightmare: the best in parenting this week
Why is Hillary Clinton ruining the lives of children everywhere by running for president?! OK maybe not all children, but one little boy is pretty upset about it. Also, see how Kevin James is a master at putting his kids to sleep.
1. Thanks, Hillary
This kid is so upset that Hillary Clinton is running for president because all he wants to do is be president and now that is just not possible! Thanks, Hillary! (Doesn’t have the same ring as “Thanks, Obama!” does it?)
2. Timberbaby has arrived!
Keeping the sex of your baby a secret is great and all, but what about keeping secret the fact that you’re having twins? Still great because watch the reactions of friends and family when they find out.
4. Speaking of multiples…
One Houston couple welcomed quintuplets—all girls!—born at 28 weeks. This marks the first time an entire set of quints has been all one sex in the United States! You go, girls!
5. Nerd babies!
What is the point of having children if you cannot dress them how you see fit? Isn’t that the whole idea of “parenting”? From baby Spock, Harry Potter, and Mario, these parents are doing it all right.
6. Thor babies
It takes immense restraint to not put Chris Hemsworth into the blog every week. Luckily, he recently went on Ellen and talked about the nightmare that is traveling with children. Ellen’s idea for how kids should fly is basically brilliant.
7. We all do it
Have you ever just poked your baby, to make sure they were still breathing? Ever used them as an excuse to get out of something? 1.) You’re not alone. 2.) There are plenty more things new parents are guilty of doing.
8. “Why does he look like that?”
Kids notice more than we ever think they do, so when your little one points out something different about another child, what do you say? One parent gives some tips on what to do if that ever happens to you. Spoiler alert: do not hush them up and rush away.
9. Miss Independent on being Miss Mommy
Kelly Clarkson graces the cover of Redbook and talks about her baby, her body, and how she and her husband Brandon make their marriage the best for them.
10. This is how you sleep
“Kids are like wolves. They can sense when you don’t want to be there. And they will make your night a living hell.” I don’t know how Kevin James can stand being out-numbered by his kids, but it seems like his parenting skills on discipline and sleep are pretty spot-on. Take notes, my friend.
11. Speaking of wolves…
Kimora Lee Simmons and her husband Tim Leissner welcome son Wolfe Lee. This is Simmons’ fourth child.
12. It’s never too late
Billy Joel and girlfriend Alexis Roderick are expecting their first child together. This is the second child for Joel, 65, who has a 29-year-old daughter with ex-wife Christie Brinkley.
13. Third time’s a charm!
Sasha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher welcomed their third child—and first son!—to the world last month and the birth certificate was recently released. Welcome, Montgomery Moses! Cohen and Fisher are parents to two daughters, 7 and 4 1/2.
14. Not you, Mufasa!
This little girl crying when Mufasa died is my everything, basically.
15. Wait AGAIN?!
Mothers in the U.S. aren’t wasting much time. Roughly one-third of mothers get pregnant less than 18 months after giving birth, which is actually dangerously close together.
16. Don’t give up
One mom says her work just barely pays for daycare, but that isn’t stopping her from giving up her work. Do you think parents should stay home to raise their children or continue their careers?
17. Well if Billy Joel can do it….
Turns out there are still women giving birth long after many deem it impossible. This German schoolteacher, 65, is pregnant with quadruplets.
18. Smell ya later!
One couple announces their pregnancy Fresh Prince-style and it’s making the rest of us look bad. That’s OK, it’s still adorable!
