This Mom Explains Why You Don’t Owe Strangers Candy For Sitting Near Your Babies
11 days ago
We have all sat next to a baby on a plane before. And you know that when you see that baby, you start praying that they don’t decide that being up in the air for hours is the best time toscream and cry.
But sometimes, it happens. It’s inevitable. Some mothers have tried to preempt objections or glares from strangers by devoting out bags of candy and ear plugs. You’ve considered the pictures of these baggies, often with little notes attached, all over the Internet.
But what may seem like a harmless tendency has one mommy up in arms.
Cassie Murdoch firmly believes that parents do not owe strangers bags of candy for having to sit next to your babies.
In a viciously honest post on Mashable, Murdoch shared her beliefs.
” Taking candy from a baby is easy ,” she started,” but there’s zero reason that parents should be handing it out to strangers on a plane to buy cooperation in case their kid screamings. No matter what the internet tells .”
She references this photo, which was recently posted on Reddit.
House Bill 4260 would encourage humen to remain” fully abstinent” and only permit” occasional masturbatory emissions inside health care and medical facilities .” This, in accordance with the law, is the best way to ensure men’s health.
The bill would additionally necessitate humen to read a pamphlet about the pros and cons of taking Viagra or getting a vasectomy or colonoscopy.
Farrar told when a human masturbates to completion without creating a pregnancy, then its a trash because that semen can be used and is to be used for creating more human life.
While it’s satire, it makes a powerful point.
” A plenty of people find the bill funny ,” Farrar said.” What’s not funny are the obstacles that Texas females face every day, that were placed there by legislatures inducing it very difficult for them to access healthcare .”
The bill plays on obstacles that women in Texas face when trying to access a legal abortion.
#HB4260, A Mans Right to Know, mirrors real TX laws and health care restrictions faced by TX females every #txlege session.
Providers doctors and pharmacists use personal, moralistic, or religious beliefs to not prescribe birth control to women and to not offer other medical services like permanent sterilization and abortion.
Texas legislators have even proposed legislation, such as House Bill 948, which aimed to make abortion a felony, and House Bill 35, which would require the cremation or burial of a fetus that was aborted or miscarried.
In response, her bill also generates” A Man’s Right to Know” booklet, that would precisely follow the rules and procedures of the informational booklet” A Woman’s Right To Know ,” required reading for Texas females attempting termination of their pregnancies.
The bill states that during a consultation, a physician must read the booklet to their male patient and then were needed to “administer a medically-unnecessary digital rectal quiz and magnetic resonance imagine of the rectum” to the men.
The fetal remains bill imposes state-sponsored moral notions on women, affecting their ability to make personal decisions with their doctor.
This Mom’s Video Calls Out the Ridiculous Things We All Said Before We Had Children
1 month ago
It’s easy for people to claim they know exactly how they’d behave in a hypothetical situation.
From armchair quarterbacks who are sure they could operate a football squad better than the coach-and-four, to backseat drivers who definitely would’ve seen that grocery cart lurking in the parking lot and veered before they reached it, we’ve all is dealing with( or, let’s be honest, been ) this kind of well-meaning know-it-all.
Parents might be more familiar with this than anyone. As hilarious vlogger and mama of three, Tova Leigh, points out in a recent video on her page, people without children often aren’t shy about sharing how they would create children, if they had them…and as the comments represent, parents aren’t too shy about sharing how these lofty plans get shattered once those children aren’t hypothetical anymore.
Leigh starts off by explaining that she( like almost every mom and dad) has heard plenty of “very strong statements” from non-parents about the “best” way to raise children.
Hey, I’m no different! Before I had kids, I planned to follow all the expert advice about screen time limits. I was going to lovingly prepare all my kids’ baby food at home to avoid dreaded additives and preservatives, and I surely wasn’t going to let them( GASP !) sobbing , no matter how tired or frustrated or generally insane I became!
Once you’ve had a kid or two or( in my instance, five )… well, let’s just say your perspective changes. A plenty. Here are some of the more common claims Leigh has heard from childless friends and strangers.
“My children are not going to be sitting in front of the Tv, or playing with my phone.”
Yeah, let me know how long that lasts. Likely right up until the first time your toddler is hollering in the pediatrician’s waiting room and you realize that a quick visit to Ponyville on the latest My Little Pony app will buy you ten minutes of blessed peace.
Or the first time you haven’t rained in six days and you know Sesame Street will give just enough time to finally rinse your hair…
“I am never going to give my kids any junk food, or sweets, or candy, or anything remotely unhealthy.”
Making healthy options about food is an important goal, for ourselves as much as our children. But when you’re driving by McDonald’s after a long, exhausting day at work, and the believed to be cooking dinner induces you want to crawl into a hole, and then a tiny voice tubes up from the backseat praying for a happy meal…all your good intents fly right out the drive-thru window.
Besides, I detest to tell you this, but your child is going to eat half a pinata of candy the first time one of their friends has a birthday party anyway. There’s no phase trying to fight it.
“My kids are never going to throw tantrums in public.”
If you think parents have any control over that whatsoever, then it’s possible you’ve never actually met a human child before.
Leigh’s video has been viewed more than 750,000 hours in just a few short days, and over 1,100 people parents and non-parents alike have weighed in with their supposes. Many of them shared what silly things they had schemed before their own kids came along.
Because really, you have no idea what to expect until you’re already in the middle of it.
Others from around the world joined the conversation with instances Leigh didn’t mention in her video.

Heartwarming: Chris Pratt Presented Up In Costume To This Denounced Fans Execution
1 month, 21 days ago
Okay, so Chris Pratt is funny, super hot, and pretty much the sweetest guy in Hollywood. And If you have even a single doubt that he is as bighearted as they come, this story will change your intellect in a hurry: When Chris heard that one of his fans was on demise row, he traveled all the way from Los Angeles to Indiana to show up at their execution garmented as Star-Lord!
Um, yeah. Anna Faris? You are the luckiest woman on the planet.
Chris amazed 43 -year-old Walter Millwood on the day Walter was set to die by lethal injection, and he did so while wearing the actual costume he donned during filming of Guardians of the Galaxy . Sure, Chris couldve spent his free time rubbing elbows with other -Alisters in Malibu. But instead he took a few hours out of his busy schedule to brighten the working day of a fan who was being pumped full of pancuronium bromide, and thats what makes this Parks And Rec star so amazing.
As Walter was escorted into the lethal injection chamber, there was Chris in the viewing booth busting moves from Star-Lords iconic dance-off. Pratt also recited a few of Star-Lords catchphrases as Walters heartbeat slowly succumbed to the drug cocktail administered by the nation of Indiana. And even though he was only expected to be there for a few minutes, Chris was in no rushing to leave, and remained until after Walter was officially declared dead by the prison physician. What a guy!
Its so heartwarming to see an actor of Chris Pratts caliber do something as selfless as this, and theres no doubt that his amazing visit put a smile on Walters face before the fatal dosage of sedatives induced that impossible for him to do.
So that resolves it: Chris Pratt fans are the luckiest people in the world!
She’s a wife, mother, and an aspiring model, who promotes self-love and body positivity on Instagram.
” In my life I have always battled myself. Judging myself on what I look like and how I act,” she captioned thisphoto .” Never letting myself get out of my comfort zone because I didn’t want to be criticized anymore then I had already been. Now that I am feeling more confident in my body I can see that I have been my own worst enemy in life. I have been so hard on myself I have held myself back from so many opportunities and experiences I could have enjoyed this far. Sometimes the hardest thing to compete with is ourself! We have to stop putting ourselves down and holding ourselves back! There is a beautiful world that we should be enjoying instead of concealing from it. Stop competing with yourself !”
Captioning this photo 😛 TAGEND ” To all the haters out there that have been talking about me as if I’m just fat, unhealthy, and not doing nothing about it! Even though I owe you NO type of justification! I wanted to share with y’all proof that I do go to they gym and I am very healthy !!! Now to the men and women the hell is body positive along side of me, just because we love our bodies doesn’t mean we can’t take care of our bodies! Loving yourself does not mean that you just let yourself go. When you love yourself truly you want to take care of your body. Good eating habits and exercising are key to staying healthy and hey if that results in weight loss that’s ok and if it doesn’t that’s ok too. It’s not about being skinny or being fat it’s about being healthy .”
All together now 😛 TAGEND
That attitude is what helped make this photo of her with her husband of six years, Keenan, go insanely viral.
It was the caption that sealed the deal 😛 TAGEND ” Over the years this human has loved every curve, every roll, and every stretch mark on my body. I never understood why ! How could he love something that isn’t “perfect”? How could a human who was ” born fit” love person like me! I don’t have a flat stomach, I jiggle when I stroll, hell if I run up the stairs to fast my body claps( lmao )!! But now I watch I do have the “perfect” body !! Every roll, every curve and every stretching mark is put one over me just perfect to stimulate both of us happy !!! I love my body and I eventually insure why he does too !!”
