Here’s another tear-jerker commercial. ( Those advertisers are getting pretty damn clever.)
Watch as these children are blindfolded and asked to pick out their mothers in a line-up using just touch and smell.

Even with good intentions some comments just throw you when they are made.

Well, here is a tear-jerker for you.
In true Ken Jeong fashion, he’ll find a way to make you laugh, even when you’re in the midst hearing of some serious information. That is probably why he was such a well liked doctor prior to leaving his career in internal medicine to become an actor. His first big role? Leslie Chow in The Hangover.
Kyle and Danielle Williams were expecting their second child, a girl…or so they thought. Those ultrasounds seem pretty accurate.
This video created by The Mercadantes artistically compiles the ways the “invisible life-force” varies, while simultaneously remaining a contestant part of our time here on earth.

This is the photo my daughter (13yo) took when I nursed my 4.5yo son for the last time.
One of the hardest parts of all this leukemia/chemo/hospitalization stuff has been its effect on my relationship with EJ.
