Anyone with kids knows that sometimes…they can be a little weird. Especially when it comes to the things that, for whatever reason, they become absolutely obsessed with.
Heather McManamy has been fighting breast cancer since 2013. Her disease is terminal, but Heather is determined to be a part of her daughter’s life, even after she’s gone.
Weighing in at 175 pounds, Hulk, the world’s largest Pitbull, is now the proud father of a litter of eight adorable puppies that could fetch up to $55,000 each.
Four months ago, Australian comedian Adam Hills decided to share his diaper changing experience with the Twitterverse, coining the term #smelfie.
When Bobby Villegas and Kait Villegas-Payne were planning their elopement, they knew that the day wouldn’t be complete without Villegas-Payne’s daughter, Scarlet.
So they included her in their special day in the most amazing way possible: As their ring bearer.
And while the position of ring bearer role is typically granted to boys, the couple never gave that a second thought, Villegas-Payne told A Practical Wedding —
She was the ring bearer because that’s what I had a literal need for. We didn’t even have a real aisle for anybody to throw petals down on. We did need somebody to hold our rings.
For Villegas-Payne and her husband, having Scarlet be a part of their beautiful ceremony was of the utmost importance —
I gave her a gold pin with the word ‘constant’ and talked to her a little about how much her presence means to me. I love the show Lost, I love the idea of ‘constants,’ and I mostly love that Scarlet has always been mine.
And since their ceremony was about joining their family together, Bobby also made a vow to Scarlet:
Bobby gave her a ring and a promise to always be there if she ever needs him for anything.
Are you sobbing yet?
“That’s what friends are for” took on new meaning for best friends Laura Ruffino and Elizabeth Diamond when Diamond was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2014.
Although Diamond knew it was terminal and that she had an incredible battle ahead, the single mom’s main concern was what might happen to her four daughters (who range in ages from five to 12) when she passed away.
But she didn’t need to worry too much, because Ruffino, whom she had known since fifth grade, made her a promise.
While most of us struggle to make a pancake that doesn’t tear when we try to flip it, illustrator and math teacher Nathan Shields — who is currently living as a stay-at-home day — turns this breakfast staple into edible works of art for his two kids (and hundreds of thousands of fans).
Ah, childhood photos: the source of endless amusement for parents and partners alike, and unending embarrassment for their subjects (though they are sooo sweet).
Some, however, have decided to take the high road and recreate those photos — and they’ve done a great job!
You kind of have to wonder how they still have all the matching clothes…
