  • One Mom Got Into A Horrific Car Accident. If You Have Kids, You Need To See This.

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_717_340x252-1506959022

    A parent’s worst nightmare is something happening to their children.

    Still, sometimes we can lose sight of why we take the safety precautions we do. We can even get lax and lazy about actually doing things correctly.

    When it comes to kids’ car seats, using them and doing it right can be the difference between life and death. That’s why one mom’s message is so important to hear.

    Jenna Casado Rabberman stopped to get milk after picking up her kids. Another car slammed into theirs.

    She and her kids walked away with barely a scratch, something emergency responders credited to the proper buckling of her kids’ car seats. Read her entire plea below.

    I’m not one to post anything too heavy or personal on Facebook but guys… THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time. Even when they scream because the straps are tight. Even when they complain about the chest clip or being rear facing. We stopped for milk on the way home from preschool yesterday. We were minutes from home. Another car slammed into us. You never think it will happen to you. My boys escaped without a scratch but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra 2 minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly. I will be fine, my kids are fine, everything else can be replaced. Sending thanks to God for keeping us safe (along with Honda, Graco & Chicco).

    Edited to add:
    I’m getting a lot of PMs asking these questions so I want to add this information.
    My little one is 6 weeks old & my older son is nearly 3.
    My car was a 2015 Honda CRV. (His name was Yoshi, may he rest in peace)
    The seats are a Chicco Keyfit 30 (infant seat) & Graco Children’s Products 4ever. Both were rear facing.
    AND YES THE SEATS ARE BEING REPLACED.

    I never expected this post to be seen by so many people! I really only posted it for family & friends but hopefully it will save a life by making someone think twice about buckling their child in.

    This is such an important reminder for all of us to buckle up and stay safe while out on the road. I’m so glad she and her kids are okay.

    So many people dream of meeting a real life prince.

    Toddlers, however, are the kings and queens of not giving a crap about your fancy titles. They want what they want, and they want it now.

    One little girl named Emily Henson found herself seated next to Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada. Prince Harry had some popcorn in his lap, and Emily decided she needed a snack. What happened next was hilarious.

    At first, she takes a handful and no one notices.

    He just catches her out of the corner of his eye. But what’s he going to do?

    His reaction is too sweet. Check out the entire exchange in the video below!

    Sometimes wanting to give your child the life you never had means making major sacrifices.

    Travis Altman is a family man who loves his daughter and wants to give her everything she’s ever dreamed of. In doing so, his source of income as a lineman requires him to travel quite frequently, forcing him to be away from his daughter for several weeks at a time. So when Altman finally arrived home after an extended work trip, he wanted to surprise his daughter in the last place she’d expect.

    Anxiously awaiting her arrival at a school lunch table, Altman couldn’t wait to be reunited with his mini-me.

    After a warm embrace Altman’s little girl couldn’t help but smile as he presented her with a bouquet of roses and Happy Meal.

    You can watch the adorable reunion below:

  • Watching This Little Girl Try To Use A Gameboy Will Make You Feel Ancient

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_430_690x252-1506361240

    Kids these days have absolutely incredible technology available to them from the time they’re old enough to play with toys, many of which are more high tech than the first cell phones.

    Back in my day, my green Gameboy Color went with me everywhere. And really, if your thumbs weren’t going numb from playing Mario Kart or Crash Bandicoot, then were you really even a gamer? If I’m being totally honest, I still bring out the old Gameboy and play for hours on end just for that overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. Today’s kiddos, however, find the classic device a little confusing. Just ask this girl.

    “Buttons? WTF are buttons?”

    But the Gameboy isn’t the only gadget that will have today’s kids scratching their heads. Watch as these little ones effortlessly make you feel like you’re four million years old.

    If anyone needs me, I’ll be standing in the mirror and checking for gray hairs. Yikes.

  • They Dressed Their Dog To Support Equality. What One Man Tried To Do Is So Hateful.

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_535_340x252-1506540530

    In September, the Australian Bureau of Statistics conducted a survey to gauge national sentiment toward same-sex marriage.

    The one-question survey simply asked those eligible to participate whether or not they believed that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry in their country. And while this simple survey has quickly divided the nation, it really is just a tool to test the waters. There will be no direct legislative outcome.

    Still, tensions nationwide were high and one woman’s dog almost bore the brunt of a hateful man’s rage because of it.

    Same-sex marriage became a huge issue during the 2016 election after Malcolm Turnbull proposed a compulsory attendance plebiscite on the issue. After Parliament shot down the voluntary vote not once, but twice, the Coalition government instead chose to frame the inquiry as a postal survey in order to avoid legislative approval.

    As the legislation stands under the Marriage Amendment Act of 2004, marriage is described as “a union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life.” So despite changing attitudes all across the world, same-sex couples cannot marry in Australia.

    So when Australian editor and pet owner Claire Sutherland chose to vote on the issue alongside her pup, she gave the dog an equality bandana to wear on the big day.

    But then things turned ugly when a man lashed out against the editor’s views by trying to hurt her dog. In a tweet concerning the incident, Sutherland recounts, “So some mouth-breathing cretin in the park tried to kick my dog while shouting homophobic slurs. Australia, you have truly shat the bed.”

    You can read Sutherland’s full account of the political attack on her dog here.

    This is just cruel on so many levels. Not only is the man trying to exclude an entire swath of people from a basic right, but he’s open to hurting animals to make his hateful attitude known. Unreal.

  • They Saw A Truck Going Down The Road. A Closer Look Revealed Something Hilarious.

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_456_340x252-1506384982

    Have you ever noticed a face in something where there shouldn’t be one?

    If you have, you were likely experiencing pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon which can cause people to perceive images or patterns of light and shadow as faces. The mind basically responds to the stimulus by showing us a familiar pattern where none exists. For example, you’ve probably seen the “Man in the Moon” before or certain cloud formations that look like animals.

    These 25 people also saw something beyond the random objects they were looking at — namely, their favorite characters and well-known figures. The resemblances are so perfect that you’ll notice them too.

    1. “Meth. Not even once. RIP Thomas the Tank Engine.”

    2. “The electrical box in front of my house looks like the dark lord Sauron is watching me.”

    3. “My friend’s septic tank looks like Rafiki from Lion King.”

    4. “Found a stormtrooper when I was doing the dishes.”

    5. Is that you, WALL-E?

    6. A truck carrying rolls of plastic? More like Cookie Monster!

    7. The only time a faucet could look like Scrat from “Ice Age.”

    8. “It’s a-me, strawberry Mario!”

    9. Here you might recognize Sideshow Bob from “The Simpsons”…

    10. …Sid the sloth…

    11. …Mr. Krabs…

    12. …Raphael from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”…

    13. …and Jabba the Hut, too!

  • He Noticed Something Awful On His Wedding Day. What He Did Next Makes Him A Hero.

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_540_340x252-1506576940

    Last Friday, Clayton Cook and his bride, Brittany, exchanged vows and became husband and wife in a beautiful ceremony. Clayton also saved a life.

    After saying “I do,” the newly married couple from Kitchener in Ontario, Canada, began posing for their photographer, Darren Hatt. But right in the middle of their wedding shoot, Clayton ran toward a nearby pond and jumped in, suit and all. That’s because the groom had noticed a little boy who needed his help.

    The boy had been pushed into the water by another child and was clearly struggling beneath the surface.

    Thankfully, Clayton was right there to pull the little guy out.

    Brittany isn’t surprised at all by her husband’s heroic actions. “That’s Clay, like that’s Clay to me,” she said. “It’s something he would just instinctively do.”

    Learn more about what happened that day below.

  • Most Dogs Hate Vacuum Cleaners, But This One? He Just Can’t Get Enough

    media.galaxant.com_000_503_406_340x252-1506349603

    If there’s one thing I know, it’s that dogs and vacuum cleaners don’t mix.

    And why would they? Imagine being a dog, sitting around, thinking about your next meal. The person you love most in the world brings out an angry machine that’s at least as big as you are and starts waving it around all over the room! I’d be terrified, too.

    But there’s an exception to every rule, and this exception is an Alaskan Malamute named Phil.

    Is there anything more pure in this world than a big, fluffy dog? Look at how happy he is.

    Yaaaaaaaas, get that massage! What I would give to be that relaxed, ever.

    His owner explained, “So many people ask how I keep my house so clean. It’s easy: don’t hoover the house, hoover the dog.”

    Want to see more? Phil, his sister Niko, and a cat named Milo have some pretty amazing adventures over on their Instagram. I want like twelve of him.
