Best Parenting: Sure everyone can purchase a mug that says ‘#1 Dad,’ but it takes a lot of nerve to claim that someone is the best parent. We’ve noticed that celebrities and those around them have been throwing up these superlatives about their childrearing skills all year. We have the boldest parenting claims (and a couple of other crazy parent stories) from 2007.
My kids watched TV as soon as they could sit up and they're still sweet, sane, emotionally well-adjusted little human beings in spite of it. So, I would totally let a new baby watch TV, too. But this time around, I’d be on the floor, eating banana chips and watching the Wiggles with them (or whatever the cool babies are into these days) because kiddie TV, when someone is interacting with you while watching it, can be really fun. I’d also play hide and seek (and not just so I can sneak away to the bathroom to read 50 Shades of Grey while my kids think I'm looking for them). I’d do puzzles, and color, and hold tea parties with actual liquid in the pot. On rainy days, we’d play board games because, hey, I’m over 40 and my brain needs the memory boost, too. As for sunny days, let's just say my baby and I would make it our mission to make playing outside sexy again! The point here is: childhood is fun and I want in on that action! Photo: weheartit.com
