Look out Broadway! 10-year-old Guillermo Gael Delgado Garcia completely crushes his version of “Cuban Pete”, a classic rumba song. Dancing poolside in Monterrey, Mexico he entertains swimmers, even getting a few to join in, while his uncle films the whole dance.
I hope this kid never loses his zest for life. I love his free-spirit.
I Love Lucy fans may remember “Cuban Pete” performed by “Lucy” and “Ricky” in the very first episode:
So much awesomeness in one … Keep Reading!!!
Pucker is a collaborative photo project by David Wile and April Maciborka that documents the always epic first taste of lemon for children. Most of us have had that camera ready just waiting to see what kind of reaction our own kids give to their first lemon. As the project shows, there’s such a range of reactions but not one is lacking in cuteness.
Admit it, if you haven’t already given that first taste of lemon you’re going to tonight.… Keep Reading!!!

A hospital in Seattle has found a way to integrate daycare and assisted-living into one facility. Their new “Intergenerational Learning Center” brought a preschool into Mount St. Vincent nursing home. Each day the 400 adults living in the center are welcome to join the kids in activities from music and dancing to story telling to just visiting and connecting.

In a world where we are often surrounded by scary, sad news stories it’s hard to completely protect our kids from seeing these stories. Children are intuitive; they overhear us in the other room, they pick up on our emotions, they overhear us talking when we’re sure we’re out of earshot, they hear people outside of the home talking. They will almost always find out what’s going on. The question becomes how do we help them understand and cope without … Keep Reading!!!

As a parent of two young kids, I sometimes have to remember that my kids probably won’t be the next Michael Jordan, Peyton Manning or Carrie Underwood. No matter how much I decide to push them, the reality is that my wife and I want them to find things that they love, … Keep Reading!!!
7-year-old Alyx Delaloye has been recently spotted at Winnipeg Jets home games with a sign reading “Chemo by Day. Jets by night. She spends her days fighting leukaemia through her sixth round of chemo and her nights cheering on her favourite hockey team.
There’s a million things I swore I’d never do once we had kids, most of which I now laugh about. Some things we stick to our guns on and some are still very important to us. Some went out the window faster than my days of getting 8 solid hours of sleep.
I didn’t swear it off completely but I swore not one single bite before 4 years old. I didn’t want my kids to be addicted to … Keep Reading!!!
