Moms go wild and kids with selective pickiness: the best in parenting this week
A singing OB, a boy who does NOT want his mom to have another baby, and why Hello Kitty is blowing our minds this week. Happy Labor Day Weekend!
1. Boy’s reaction to his mother’s pregnancy is hilarious
“What were you thinking?!” “This makes no sense.” “It’s exasperating.” This boy’s reaction to his mother’s new pregnancy is a trip!
2. The singing doctor
This doctor sings happy birthday when he welcomes newborns into the world. So touching you’ll wonder why your own doctor can’t do the same!
3. Moms go wild, back to school style
Errands without the kids? A public restroom all to yourself? How did you spend your kids’ #firstdayback?
4. Pregnancy time-lapse video
The Marshalls were newlyweds who planned to create a video of one-second clips from each day leading up to the birth of their first child. What they didn’t anticipate was who they’d be dedicating the video to, and why.
5. Selective pickiness
Isn’t that convenient?
6. Want a kid? Work for Facebook
Tech companies offer employees the most parental leave. We’re tipping our hats to you, Facebook, Reddit and Google!
7. Olivia Wilde just showed the Ice Bucket Challenge who’s boss
The Internet went crazy at the thought of wasting precious “liquid gold,” but according to Olivia’s tweet, it was only a joke.
Oh wait some of you thought that was really breast milk? Oh dear. Uh thank you? But my boobs aren’t that generous. Haha.

8. Hello Kitty isn’t a cat and my mind is blown
Sanrio revealed this week that Hello Kitty is not a cat. Apparently because she is never shown on four legs, she is a little girl. I’m choosing not to share this with my daughter. Why should both of us be robbed of our innocence?
9. Making new mom friends is like trying to pick up a guy
Yes, making new mom friends is painfully awkward. Not only do you have to find something in common, but your parenting styles have to mesh, too!? It’s a tough world trying to pick up a new mom friend, and Lauren Cormier nailed it.

11. 19 songs that will get you through every parenting moment
Put these all on one playlist, and you’ve got an anthem for parenthood.
12. Face swap
These face swaps are so bizarre, but this one really cracked me up.
