Jordan Stratton

Jordan is one of those guys in his late 20s with a master's degree and no idea what he wants to do with his life. He eats an unhealthy amount of cereal, spends an irrational amount of time on the internet, and somehow swindled his way into a marriage with a beautiful wife who puts up with far too much nonsense. He would be delighted if you followed him on Twitter.

Wife’s “Nagging” Text to Husband Saves Their Baby’s Life

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

Car seats for children are crucial for keeping them safe in the event of an accident. But they’re used improperly far too often.

Just ask Rebecca Tafaro Boyer, a mom and nurse from Memphis, TN, who recently shared a cautionary tale on Facebook. In her post she outlines exactly why it’s the small adjustments that are so important – they can be the difference between a miracle and a tragedy.

“Friends, let’s have a quick chat about something that some of my family members think makes me a super annoying overprotective mom – car seat safety … My first day back from maternity leave, I demanded that my husband send me hourly updates and recaps on how baby William was handling his first day away from mommy.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

“This afternoon around 2:15, I got a text from my hubby during their trip to Walgreens. My nagging wife reply was to correct William’s position in the car seat.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

“The straps were too loose and the chest clip was way too low. And because I know my husband, I’m sure that he laughed at me and rolled his eyes before tightening the car seat and fixing the chest clip.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

“At 2:30 my phone rang, my husband’s panicked voice came through the line, ‘Honey, we had a car wreck.’”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

“The boys were less than three miles from our house when a woman pulled into oncoming traffic to try and make a quick left turn. David just didn’t have enough time to stop – it could have happened to anyone.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

“My precious little bundle of joy was so well restrained in his car seat, THAT HE DIDN’T EVEN WAKE UP. Even with the impact of the two cars, William only received a minor jolt – so insignificant that he was able to continue on with his nap, and then spend the next two hours flirting with nurses in the Le Bonheur ED.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

Her husband, David, fractured the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th metatarsals of his right foot due to how hard he slammed it on the brake pedal.

“The car is a loss, but cars can be replaced – my boys can’t.”

(Facebook/Rebecca Tafaro Boyer)

Rebecca’s post has been shared on Facebook over 33,000 times and the majority of responses have been positive and supportive. She wants all parents to realize the importance of car seat knowledge and how it can be critical for protecting one’s most precious cargo, even when only driving a short distance.

Parents Astonished At Incredible Toddler/Golden Retriever Teamwork Caught On Security Camera

(YouTube/Cheese Pups)

Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular dogs in the world with their outgoing and playful personalities. They also tend to be very patient animals, making them ideal for families with young children.

(instagram/cheesepups)

However, parents should be wary about their kids and pups getting a little too friendly. You never know when they will team up for an epic, early morning heist, as was the case with toddler Chloe and her furry friends, Bleu and Colby, AKA the “Cheese Patrol.”

(instagram/cheesepups)

Bleu and Colby learned early on in their relationship with Chloe that the young girl is much more generous with snacks than her mom and dad. As such, when the sun started to come up and mom and dad weren’t stirring, the two pooches sought out the person they knew would be all too happy to help fill their bellies.

(instagram/cheesepups)

The plan started with the dogs opening the door to Chloe’s room. After a few gentle nudges and licks, the toddler woke up happily and was led by the pups out of the room to the target, AKA the kitchen, AKA snack nirvana.

(instagram/cheesepups)

Chloe’s parents, Chris and Nina, were baffled to find their daughter wandering the halls, especially considering she wasn’t tall enough to reach her bedroom doorknob, so they set up a video camera to investigate just how this was happening. Upon seeing the footage, they couldn’t help but be amused.

(instagram/cheesepups)

“They definitely know exactly what they are doing,” Chris said. “And Chloe feeds them on purpose.”

(instagram/cheesepups)

Despite putting an end to the criminal trio’s activities, Mom and Dad say they all remain the best of friends.

But let’s be honest—if someone gave you free snacks every time you saw them, you’d be best friends with them too.

Photoshop Artist Takes Photo Requests Too Literally And The Results Are Amazing

(Twitter/fjamie013)

Equipped with the right software, a talented digital artist can do wonders in regards to photo editing.

Red-eye? Fixed.

Blinking in that shot? Not anymore.

Had a zit the size of Texas that day? All cleared up.

But these tricks are small potatoes compared to the magic James Fridman creates with Photoshop. In fact, there are few things James can’t do in regards to editing, and his multitude of fans (nearly 1.5 million followers on Twitter alone) know it.

The British designer’s internet fame—or infamy, depending on who you ask—is a result of him taking requests to alter submitted photos and then returning them with hilarious twists that technically still fulfill the person’s wishes.

James’s Twitter account bio reads, “Do not submit any personal photos that you do not want to be made public.” And he means it.

Check out more of James’s hilarious and snarky talent on Twitter and Instagram.

Man Endures Epic (And Ongoing?) Battle Against Birds

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

Besides a few stains on car windshields and waking people up earlier than desired on weekends, there are few things birds do that will really get people’s blood boiling. Of course, those people haven’t undergone literal years of their homes being under constant siege like Imgur user atomicrabbit2 has.

It all started roughly 4 years ago when our protagonist bought a new house. A house with a nice fireplace and a convenient exhaust vent tucked neatly beside his back door. Unfortunately, the vent provided both heat and shelter from the elements—prime real estate for local birds.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

August 2014: Atomicrabbit2 first notices that some feathered residents have moved on top of the exhaust vent; not a major problem at first, but a growing nuisance as they begin building nests and pooping directly into the exhaust vent.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

March 2015: Wrapping the vent with chicken wire seems like it will take care of the problem without obstructing anything serious.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

Of course, things couldn’t be that easy. The birds find a cozy little crevice to build a nest. No eggs or baby birds, so the nest gets tossed. Problem solved!

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

May 2015: Problem not solved.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

Playtime’s over at this point. Atomicrabbit affixes bird spikes on top of the vent to prevent any more pesky winged homemakers from getting any ideas… which promptly backfires when the spikes instead act as a stabilizer for the nest. This time the birds add colored twine, clearly taunting their befuddled foe.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

June 2016: No more games. ONLY SPIKES. Make it impossible for anything to

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

May 2017: …

July 2017: …

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

At his wit’s end, Atomicrabbit pulls out all the stops and goes chicken wire crazy, surrounding the entire opening all the way up to the ceiling.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

With no possible way to get in, the birds had no choice but to

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

May 2018: —totally find a way in. Accidentally leaving a small opening in the right side, Atomicrabbit had unknowingly constructed an exclusive gated bird community.

(Imgur/Atomicrabbit2)

Atomicrabbit then finally brings home Dr. Who, scaring the birds away seemingly for good.

For good measure, the gap on the right side is patched. Atomicrabbit says the birds have been gone for a while, but if they somehow make a grand return next year, he’s likely going to just give in and try charging them rent.

Parents Joke About Naming Their Kids After The Reason They Had Them

(Twitter/mominiquematti & Getty/skodonnell)

You never realize how difficult it is to name a child until you have to. An easy alternative, according to Bunmi Laditan, AKA @HonestToddler on Twitter, would be to simply name them after the reason they were conceived in the first place.

This led to a long thread of replies from parents sharing their children’s new monikers and the results were hilarious… and maybe smidge too relatable.

Stagehand Dad Creates Incredible Projector Surprise For Dino-Obsessed Daughter

(YouTube/Lyle Coram)

Shelby Coram’s dad, Lyle, is not only a skilled stagehand with amazing technical expertise, but he also loves surprises.

So when he’d been hearing more and more about Shelby’s love for dinosaurs, he decided to create something special for her.

Using giant screens, projectors, and lights, he transformed the typical Nevada landscape outside of their living room into a vast, tropical jungle filled with Cretaceous critters.

“She loves dinosaurs. She has seen all of the Jurassic Parks,” Lyle said. She wasn’t scared by them, just really surprised by how I did it!”

Shelby seemed to love every minute of the immersive “Jurassic Living Room” experience, going as far as trying to interact with the dinosaurs, which included a brontosaurus and velocipraptors.

Though the enormous T-Rex seemed to be a little overwhelming with its peering yellow eye.

“She really loves the room,” Lyle said. “She tells all her friends that I built it for her and that ‘I can do anything.’ That’s the best part of doing this.”

Any dad willing to resurrect dinosaurs for their kid is okay in our book. Check out the entire video below.

 

Four-Year-Old Gives Dad With Diarrhea The Encouraging Pep Talk He Needs

(Getty/vchal)

Let’s be honestnone of us expected to read a wholesome story about diarrhea today, and yet here we are.

Clint Edwards, the writer behind No Idea What I’m Doing: A Daddy Blog on Facebook, shared the uniquely adorable story last week.

Not long after embarking on a family road trip, he was perusing around a gas station with his youngest daughter, Aspen, when he felt an alarming gastrointestinal rumble. With his wife and two other children waiting in the car, he had no other choice but to whisk his daughter into the bathroom with him.

According to Clint, he barely made it in time and immediately began making things happen. Aspen, with her encouraging spirit, provided audible moral support for her visibly struggling father.

“Good job, Daddy! Good job! You make two poops! Now three poops! I’m four!”

Her loud verbal assistance never waivered.

“I’m not sure what happened exactly, if I’d eaten something wrong, or if it was the stress of traveling with kids, but what I do know is that my 4yo daughter is the Richard Simmons of pooping.” Clint explains. “I’ve never felt so supported in anything in my whole life. She commented on the size, smell, and sound.”

Aspen even commented on her father’s impressive work ethic: “You’re trying so hard!”

Clint remembered, “At one point I had to actually push her face away from the business end of things as she clapped and cried, ‘You’re doing it, Daddy! You’re doing it!'”

Aspen’s encouraging attitude, Clint believes, is less a result of her personality and more of a learned trait when it comes to their family’s typical bathroom etiquette.

“I suppose she’s gotten used to the positive reinforcement Mel and I give her each time she goes,” he wrote. “And when I’m cheering her on in our family restroom, it seems normal, even appropriate. But when the roles are reversed, it’s just, well, awkward. Particularly in a public restroom where the man in the stall next to me was obviously holding back tears of laughter. Laughter that busted loose when she called me a ‘pooping-farting robot.'”

Clint eventually made it out of the adorably awkward predicament with his cheerleader of a daughter and successfully completed the rest of the road trip with his family and a newly purchased box of anti-diarrheal caplets.

The power of positive reinforcement, folks.
