Casey Anthony Video Diary

There are lots of non-sensical things on the internet; so much so, that things we see on You Tube now seem commonplace, when no one would've paid attention ten years ago.

Anyone who remembers the OJ Simpson trial probably remembers sitting in front of the TV watching the trial coverage or the chase with the white Bronco

Making The Move!

Moving stinks, let’s face it. Regardless if you’re moving across the country or somewhere else within your community, it still stinks. The packing, the loading, the unloading, the unpacking and reorganizing…AHHHHHHH! That’s not even counting trying to find someone to help you move, or a vehicle to use to move some of the stuff out. Now I’m not complaining about moving into a new home, because I love it here as I’m finally moved in, but I’m just trying to share with you the hassles of doing it on your own because your lovely lady is pregnant and she can’t do much to help at all.

“Toddlers & Tiaras” – Encouraging Kids To Dance On Bars Since 2009

I have a love/hate relationship with the show "Toddlers & Tiaras". On one side, I love it, because it often makes me feel better about myself as a person. And about how I would be as a parent, since I certainly wouldn't be anything like the fame-hungry monster mothers on the show. On the other hand, I feel bad for the kids, who are made to think that pageants are the greatest thing in the world, and that failure is not an option, ever. I'm pretty sure it leads to self-esteem problems and eating disorders and most likely a myriad of other problems later in life.

Tonight is the season finale of "Toddlers & Tiaras", and I think they've really outdone themselves this time. In this episode, we go out with our pint-sized divas heading to a pageant in Arkansas, where a face-off between three girls and their coaches turns ugly.

Autistic Kids Get a Special Meeting with ‘Sensitive Santa’ [VIDEO]

13-Year-Old Boy Arrested For Burping

Now, I've never been a teenage boy, but I've interacted with enough of them in my life to know that burping is a staple in their life. Burping loudly, even more so (this could go for some grown men as well). So, when I read a headline about a teenage boy being arrested for burping, I had to dig a little deeper and figure out what it was all about.

Swearing Baby Doll? (Video)

Remember the stir caused by the supposed sexual "subliminal messages" in Disney movies? I'll admit I watched the balcony scene from Aladdin over and over,  and finally did hear Aladdin mutter to the tiger "Good teenagers, take off your clothes"-- it's in there, I swear! Well, something like that is happening with a toy on shelves this Christmas season. If you're out and about shopping today, you might want to avoid the dolls that some are claiming have a swearing problem.

The Life of a First Time Expectant Dad

Ok, so let’s think about this…because there is a lot to consider. I found out 5 months ago that I’m expecting my first child, a little girl, and I am excited about it as I’ve ever been about anything.
