Pediatrician Dr. Robert Hamilton shares a secret of the trade in how to calm a crying baby. He suggests that you hold them at a 45 degree angle and shake, shake, shake their booty.
Who knows why it works? Maybe the baby is too confused to cry any more when someone suddenly starts wiggling their butt around. If you're a parent of a newborn, this video may be lifesaving. Even if you're not it's worth the watch for the calming ambiance and adorable, tiny humans.
The loneliest boy in all of Britain lives on an island with a population of 70 people. His name is Aron and according to the Telegraph, he is the only school aged boy on the island so his closest friends are "his dog, some ducks and flocks of sheep".
Aron used to have a few friends and brothers to play with but they all left the island to go to secondary school on another island two hours away. He's normally a pretty happy kid but his mother expressed some concern now that he's really the only kid left on the island.
This prompted a reddit user and moderator on r/Scotland to ask his fellow users to spread some holiday cheer in this post:
This is certainly a dance that they will never forget, mainly because there’s hardly any dancing involved.
Jim Mickunas wanted to do something special for his daughter Kandice on her wedding day, so he turned their father/daughter dance into a game of catch.
“My daughter has always found her own path,” he writes in the video’s caption, adding that she played a lot of sports as a kid. “I could not imagine having a traditional father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are. So I came up with this.”
The moment starts out as you might expect, with the two on the dance floor and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” playing in the background.
But then her dad stops away as a man hands them both baseball gloves and the music suddenly changes to John Fogerty’s “Centerfield.”
And with that move Jim becomes MVP and father of the year.
He also eventually subs in his new son-in-law.
“I had no idea he had it planned,” Kandice said. “Made me tear up when he handed the glove to my husband.”
