Rafael Del Col wanted to do a tribute to his late wife Tatiane Valques, so he and his three-year-old daughter Raisa recreated the couple‘s pictures together. While pregnant with their second child, Tatiane unexpectedly died in a car crash. This photo shoot was done to commemorate her, and to give Raisa a lasting memory and connection with her mother.
The original pictures were done in November 2009, a week before the Tatiane and Rafael were married.
In November 2014, exactly … Keep Reading!!!
An amazing medical breakthrough has happened in Australia this week. A toddler’s head has been re-attached to his neck following a car accident and it’s nothing short of miraculous work by the doctor.
Two weeks ago 16-month-old Jackson Taylor was traveling in the car with his mom, Rylea, and his sister. They were hit head on by another driver. Everyone escaped with relatively minor injuries, except Jackson. Rylea tearfully recalls the aftermath

It is the age-old struggle for divorced parents; dealing with arguments that naturally come with the dissolution of a relationship but trying to remain civil for the sake of the children. Sometimes it’s easy to forget how much the fighting and bickering can affect the kids.
6-year-old Tiana explains, quite eloquently, what she wants to see from her parents and how she doesn’t like to see them fighting. It all started with a fallen shoe rack which ignited a fight … Keep Reading!!!
Kids always joke about school feeling like prison but these kids took it to a whole new level. Two kindergartners created a genius master plot. The five-year-olds dug a tunnel under the fence days in advance. And they did it all with shovels from the sandbox. During a class walk they snuck over and made their great escape.
So what do 2 escape artists do on the outside? Walk 2 kilometres to a car dealership and try to buy … Keep Reading!!!
It’s here!! Back to School, or as some parents call it: the most wonderful time of the year. With school comes back to school shopping. For some, the list of essentials can be overwhelming. For others, back to school shopping is like Christmas in August. But it can also be a financial strain on many. School has always been a good excuse for a new fall wardrobe for kids. Thank you QVC for sponsoring this post. While this was a … Keep Reading!!!

Today, on their website, Target announced that their toy section will no longer have gender specific signage. Customers have been asking for this for quite some time and Target has finally listened.
While their stores won’t be completely free of gender division it is a huge step. They have said their clothing will still have gender-based signage but that they recognize toys, home or entertainment products do not need to be separated by gender.
For many who have daughters … Keep Reading!!!
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!!!
Traditionally, playgrounds are for kids. I’m sure most of us have mused about needing adult playgrounds at one time or another. Good news! They exist!! Spain has been building them for a while now for their aging senior population, and now they are starting to pop up in the US as well.

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.
This is amazing on so many levels. The children get more one on one attention than can be provided by daycare … Keep Reading!!!
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!!!
