Nothing draws audiences to theaters like a superhero movie. They encourage us to dream big, serve others, and view talents and abilities as super powers. For kids, they are life changing. They latch on to heroes like Wonder Woman and Superman, knowing that they can overcome the odds just like their Justice League idols. Photographer Josh Rossi wanted to show kids that they are superheroes, kids who are fighting a battle every day against birth defects and disease. He helped those real superheroes see that they already were the heroes they wanted to be.
It's all high fives and big celebration in the Phelps house hold but not because Michael won another event. It's even better. Michael and Nicole Phelps announced that they are pregnant with their second child on both of their Instagram accounts.
Even Boomer phelps got in on the act celebrating his baby brother or sister.
Phelps told PEOPLE in an interview earlier this year that he and Nicole wanted to grow their family. "We are so fortunate to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully more coming soon, but we don't know when. We're going through life everyday happy and blessed with what we have. But I hope to have more kids in the future."
And here they are with baby #2 on the way. Congratulations Phelps family!
I'm a little jealous of parents with Type A personalities. They seem to have it all together with their color-coded calendars, strict bedtimes, and clean houses, but I could never be that kind of parent. I fall safely into the type B personality category and my parenting style is definitely more laid-back (as is my husband's). I used to read articles about bedtimes or other "this is the only way to parent" articles, and I would think, "I'm doing everything wrong!"
But over the past couple of years I've come to embrace my laid-back parenting style, stop comparing myself to other parents and just be me. I've found solidarity with other laid-back parents who assure me there's more than one way to parent. From the outside, laid-back parents may not look like they have it all together, (which sometimes is true), but on the other hand, there's also a method to our madness as we learn (and teach our kids) to go with the flow.
10 Things Only Laid Back Parents Understand:
Florida Georgia Line are going through some good changes. They have a new line of flavored whiskey, are on tour with two band no one would expect to join a country tour, and Tyler Hubbard is preparing to become a father. The duo sat dow with Seth Meyers in their first late night interview to discuss everything they have going on (it's a lot), Brian's amazing treehouse, and the best advice you can give a new father.
It is a terrifying thing to sign your child up for sports. Of course they need the physical outlet, the space to make friends, and to try new things, but as a parent, we have a lot of concerns. Are we picking the right sport? Will they enjoy it? How can we make sure they excel? Celebrity parents are no different, including the host of "The Late Late Show", James Corden. But where we would only be able to tour a gym and meet a coach, Corden can participate in a class to get the full hilarious experience.
For parents, dinner time, which once was an enjoyable social experience, is a battle. A child's tastes and disposition do not lead them to eat healthy or even eat at all. And don't even bother with giving them something new! What are you, crazy? But if you live in the South, dinnertime is slightly easier. Southern food is a taste-first genre, not too bothered by health fads or nutritional value. Why? Because good food makes everything better.
What parent of a daughter does not have a dance recital story? Who among us has not endured hours of dance classes for the single hope of taking a picture of our little girl in a tutu? Which one of us, like Jimmy Kimmel, has been informed by our daughter right before her dance recital, that she will not be dancing? We all have.
All parents know nap time and bed time can be all out warfare. Now that we all have baby cams equipped with night vision, we all know that the getting our kids into bed is just the beginning of the fight. Kids are expert escape artists and rarely go to sleep once we have turned the lights out. YouTuber Bryan Lanning knows this all too well after watching his toddler help his little brother bust out of nap time. Is this a promo for toddler "Prison Break"?
