Take a few moments out of today’s schedule to celebrate the interesting things only a parent would say or understand!

Someone recently sent us this YouTube clip of President Ronald Reagan addressing the nation on Independence Day, 1986.

  • According to data released in 2003, as many as eight million boys and girls around the world live in institutional care.

Check out this hilarious video from the creators of “Convos With My 4 Year Old” on YouTube. For anyone who is the parent of young children, you will relate to this video.

These are the little moments of parenthood that give us all a good laugh (most of the time!). Enjoy the weekend.
