“You’re doing it, Daddy!” Daughter cheers on Dad in public restroom and we can feel his embarrassment from here

Two hours into a 12-hour road trip to a family funeral last week, Clint Edwards stopped at a gas station in Oregon. His wife and two older kids stayed in the van while the dad and his 4-year-old daughter, Aspen, went to get some cornflakes.

That’s when the diarrhea struck and he had to make a beeline for the store’s bathroom with his daughter.

Edwards, who shares hilarious parenting stories on his blog, No Idea What I’m Doing: A Daddy Blog, explained how his daughter’s recent potty training helped her be the perfect cheerleader for dad’s public potty time…

We b-lined into the restroom, making it just in time. I had no choice but to take my 4yo into the stall with me. Aspen watched as I struggled, Moana light-up crocs on the wrong feet, blue eyes wide and supportive, hands clapping. ‘Good job, Daddy! Good job! You make two poops! Now three poops! I’m four!’

‘Yucky, Daddy. It’s stinky.’

I’m not sure what happened exactly, if I’d eaten something wrong, or if it was the stress of traveling with kids, but what I do know is that my 4yo daughter is the Richard Simmons of pooping. I’ve never felt so supported in anything in my whole life. She commented on the size, smell, and sound. ‘Wow!’ She said. She commented on my work ethic. ‘You’re trying so hard!’ At one point I had to actually push her face away from the business end of things as she clapped and cried ‘You’re doing it, Daddy! You’re doing it!’

She’s potty trained, sure. But she’s also easily distracted, and prone to potty accidents. I suppose she’s gotten used to the positive reinforcement Mel and I give her each time she goes. And when I’m cheering her on in our family restroom, it seems normal, even appropriate. But when the roles are reversed, it’s just, well, awkward. Particularly in a public restroom where the man in the stall next to me was obviously holding back tears of laughter. Laughter that busted loose when she called me a ‘pooping-farting robot.’

Naturally it all passed, and as I buckled Aspen into the car seat, a small package of anti-diarrhea pills held in my mouth, Mel asked what took so long, and I rolled my eyes and mumbled, ‘You don’t want to know.’

It was then that Aspen was kind enough to recount the story to her mother, clapping the whole time. I sat in the driver’s seat. Mel patted my leg, ‘Nice work, Daddy.’

All I could do was say, ‘Thank you.’

12-year-old Kid writes a book on how to understand women and the struggle is real

“Women, can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” – Desiderius Erasmus. The legend says that men are still trying to understand women but it seems like one kid got it all figured out.

Youtube

The 12-year-old boys of today aren’t just regular folks playing Minecraft. The proof of their proficiency comes in a form of understanding women and all of their mysteries.

But enough of that, this is “How to understand women” by the best-selling author, Cem.

Chapter One

“Women’s mutual understanding comes from the fact that they identify themselves with each other; but for the same reason each is against the others.”
– Simone de Beauvoir

The end

You have to hand it to the kid, he really narrowed down the options. Think that escalated quickly? See the other ‘savage’ things done by kids that will make you lol.

The unexpected way a police call kickstarted this 12 year old’s business

Starting a new business is always tough, but especially when you’re 12 years old! Reginald’s story is an inspiration and shows true resilience.

Reginald Fields, of Maple Heights, Ohio, said everything was going fine until his customer’s neighbors called the police, claiming the youngster had mowed part of their lawn.

“They said I was cutting their grass,” he said. “I didn’t know it.”

Fields became discouraged after the incident, but then the customer decided to post about the incident on Facebook.

The post received thousands of views and hundreds of shares, and with it, a business boom.

Now, Fields is receiving a lot of support and requests from new clients.

“Just give me a call,” he said. “I will be there. On time.”

The Promposal Went Viral, But The Friendship Is Deeper

Every year we see stories about a teen inviting a special needs student to prom as an act of kindness.

But what makes this story so different is that Rachel Newberry wasn’t just trying to be kind.

Newberry caught Ben Robinson completely off guard when she asked him to prom. Ben had no idea she was going to ask him.

But after the video went viral, she was a little put off by all the praise she received on social media.

“Yeah, it’s not that at all. I don’t think that me asking my friend to prom makes me a good person,” Rachel said.

To Rachel, she was simply asking her best friend to prom.

“When you say best friend, you mean best friend,” Steve Hartman said.

“I mean best friend, yeah,” Rachel replied, holding back tears.

6 year old’s raise $13,000 for immigrant children separated from parents

When you think of the $20,000 million raised through one viral Facebook fundraiser, $13,000 might not sound like a tonne of money… but for a 6 year old, it’s definitely nothing to look down at!

Shannon Cofrin Gaggero was one of the many people talking about the viral fundraiser, when her son begun talking to her about ways they could help children who have been separated from their families at the Mexico – USA border.

He said, “what about a lemonade stand?”

“We were like that’s a great idea, it’s hot as Hades in Atlanta,” Gaggero told Time magazine’s MONEY.

On Sunday, the Gaggero family along with some of the other families in the neighborhood set up a lemonade stand in Atlanta, their hometown, the benefit RAICES. They managed to raise over a thousand dollars for the Texas-based nonprofit that provide legal and educational services for immigrants.

Even days after, once the lemonade stand had come and gone, the Facebook fundraising page set up on June 19th continued to gain traction and supplement the funds from their lemonade stand even days after the event ended.

RAICES also tweeted, supporting the cause, ‘Young people will lead the way.’

Despite the modest $1,000 goal, in just six days the family and friend had generated over $13,000.
RAICES have also benefited from other viral Facebook fundraisers, including one which began on June 16th, in which the donations have tripled the budget of the nonprofit, according to company executives.

Gaggero says although her son don’t understand the depth of the separation issues going on at the border that they’re supporting, he has still been touched by the news and feels it is wrong.

“It tugged at his heart strings,” she says. “For kids, the concept of being separated from your parents is very real and very scary.”

JK Rowling sent a magical gift to children in the Himalayas

Not everyone gets a gift from JK Rowling personally, however these 12 year olds in the Himalayas were shocked to receive something very special.

A few months ago, Sabbah Haji — a teacher from Haji Public School in the northern Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, shared with JK Rowling an essay by one of her students, twelve-year-old Kulsum Bano Batt, who had written about how she was inspired by Rowling’s life.

Here’s how it all started:

Mom Freaks Out Over Mouse In Her Son’s Bed And The Unexpected Twist Is Hilarious

Laura Mazza, the mom and blogger behind “Mum on the Run,” freaked out when she walked into her son’s room and saw a mouse in the bed. Being deathly afraid of mice, she called her husband to help but he was busy at work. She knew she had to handle this herself.

Written by Laura Mazza for her blog.

Okay so I’ve been debating whether to post this because I’m convinced people will think I’m an incapable human being at life and adulthood but I’ve figured they’re right and I may as well.

Today I saw a mouse in my sons room.

A mouse.

Stewart Little has decided to come in my house and set up camp near my sons drawers. (Not his pants American people, his clothes drawer thing)

I saw it and I froze.

And it was the kinda freeze that you feel like you shouldn’t even breathe. Where your air escapes your lungs.

I’m trying to find my pulse again when my daughter decided to strut into the room with her toddler swag and I screamed no! And it wasn’t just any no. It was the loudest noooooooooooooooooooooo I’ve ever made in my life.

So I shut the door and I leave little Jerry (Tom’s mate) to his own devices.

I decided to call my husband because there’s a mouse in the house, and when there is a mouse in the house other than blow torching the house down there isn’t much in the way of rational thinking.

He answers the phone and I say “mouse” I stutter because I’m f**king terrified. This is no Mickey Mouse okay. This is ratatouille but smaller and he isn’t making some delicious soup, he’s gonna spray out pebble poo and make babies everywhere and in my sons ears and they’ll crawl in my mouth… mouse in my mouth!!!

“Huh?” He says

“Mouse in house” I say still shaken

“Cat in hat” he replies.

“No babe, there’s a mouse in Luca’s room! You need to come home NOW and take it outside!”

“Oh Bub you just take it outside, or just kill it”

“Kill it???”

Obviously this guy hasn’t seen the movie ‘Witches’ where the witch turns into a mouse after eating soup and gets stomped on by the chef and green pus sprays out.

“There are children in the house, your children. You need to come here. I can’t save them”

He laughs. He thinks I’m joking.

This face isn’t joking. This face is scared that this mouse is going to radio the rescuers and call his other mice friends to come and have a pebble poo party orgy. NOT ON MY WATCH MOUSE. Not on my watch.

But of course he can’t see my face because he’s on the phone.

“Okay I’m being serious there’s a mouse in the house and I’m FREAKING THE F OUT” I actually did swear but I’ll try and be cool in the post. Pretty sure I called the mouse the C word.

“Where is it?” He asks

“In Luca’s room”

“Where?”

“I dunno I’ll open the door”

I open the door so slowly…inch by inch in snail speed, so slow that I can hear my husband asking if I’m still there. Lol

And it’s there. In the same spot.

“It’s dead!!!!!” I shut the door.

Oh my lord the mouse is dead. I have a DEAD mouse in my house. I start to cry a little bit.

“It’s dead… it never had a chance to live its life”

“Babe just go scoop it up with a piece of paper and put it in the bin. I have to go to a meeting”

So I hung up on him. Because obviously I’m alone in this. I’m alone and I need to be the brave one… so I take a couple of swigs of whiskey and say “okay Laura, today is the day you will fight your biggest fear in life and remove a dead mouse from your house”

I said this about 10 times in the mirror before and slapped myself a few times before I bolted down the door and went charging in like a knight in shining armour with a piece of paper screaming like the warrior woman I am and charge up onto this dead mouse in my house and I realise …

I realise it’s not a mouse.

No, not a mouse at all…

It’s a tiny leopard…

A tiny toy leopard.

I nod to myself and say “we shall never tell a soul about this”

My husband got home 4 hours later and asked me how I went….”I said mate, I handled that shit”

Well now the mouse is outta the bag…

This Single Mom Graduated Harvard And Wrote The MOST Inspirational Message Ever

A 24-year-old single mom just graduated Harvard Law school and opened up about her experience in an Instagram post that has since gone viral.

Briana Williams finished a final exam while she was in labor.

After her daughter was born, during her final year of law school, she learned to breastfeed with one arm while writing a paper with the other.

She brought her baby to class with her often. Other times she asked the Dean of Students to watch her child until class was over.

“I didn’t think I could do it,” Williams said.

But her hard work and determination paid off. Last week, Williams walked across the graduation stage with her daughter in her arms wearing matching caps and gowns.

This is what she wrote on Instagram:

“I went into labor in April- during final exam period. I immediately requested an epidural so that my contractions wouldn’t interfere with my Family Law grade. And, with tears in my eyes, I finished it.

This ‘biting the bullet’ experience is quite quintessential of my time at Harvard. To say that my last year of law school, with a newborn, and as a single mom was a challenge would be an understatement. Some days I was so mentally and emotionally fatigued that I did not leave my bed.

I struggled with reliable childcare. It was not atypical to see me rushing through Wasserstein to the Dean of Students’ office with Evelyn in her carriage, asking DOS can they keep her for a few until class was over. If not, she’d just have to come with me to class. Evie attended classes often.

So I’m going to be honest with you guys.. I didnt think I could do it.

Credit: Briana Williams / Instagram

I did not think that, at 24 years old, as a single mom, I would be able to get through one of the most intellectually rigorous and challenging positions of my life. It was hard. It hurt. Instagram can make peoples’ lives seem seamless, but this journey has been heartwrenching. However, I am happy to say that I DID do it.

Today, Evelyn in my arms, with tears streaming down my face, I accepted my Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. At first, I was the anomaly of my [marginalized] community. Then, as a single mother, I became a statistic. Next, I pray that- for the sake of my baby, I will be an example.

Evelyn- they said that because of you I wouldn’t be able to do this. Just know that I did this BECAUSE OF YOU. Thank you for giving me the strength and courage to be invincible.

Let’s keep beating all their odds, baby.”

This young boy asked his mom to stop the car for an incredible reason

Kids never seize to amaze us with their kindness, selflessness, and giving nature.

From the stranger thing’s cast coming together for another kid who had nobody to go to his party, to the boy who donated all his savings to charity, and even a girl who accidentally launched a business for her father!

But today, we’re going to restore your faith in our youth when you learn about this 8-year-old boy’s random act of kindness!

Maurice Adams Jr. was in the car with his mom and sister when they saw an elderly woman crossing the road.

He asked his mom to stop the car, ran over to the woman and held her arm as she slowly took each stair. At the top of the stairs, she gave him a hug and the two went on their way.

The video was filmed by Riley Duncan, who told Channel 2 Action News he saw the boy stop traffic, hop out of his car and help the woman — and he thought it was a moment that deserved to be shared.

Maurice’s mother, Contricia Hill, said she didn’t know anyone was filming the moment, but seeing her son’s act of kindness on the internet makes her proud.

She added:

And that’s exactly what he did. He held the stranger’s arm as she slowly took each stair. At the top, she gave him a hug and the two went on their way.

She said they still don’t know who the woman is, but said she had a short message for Maurice when they reached the top of the steps.

“She told him that he’s special.”
