    Meeting the Easter Bunny is a rite of passage! Just like meeting Santa. Each year, little kids get so excited to go and visit everybody's favorite egg- and candy-giving magical bunny. But let's admit it, when it comes to meeting the Bun for the first time, there's a little bit of a learning curve.

    Sure, he's cute and fluffy when he's in the pages of a book, but when you meet him in the flesh and he turns out to be five times your size and wearing a slightly, uh, frozen expression, it's natural to get slightly nervous ... or just have a total meltdown

    We've rounded up some of our favorite Baby-Meets-Bunny moments from the web. 'Tis the season to chuckle affably at these great kids and marvel at their worry, disdain, and bemusement upon meeting this magical rabbit. We hop, I mean HOPE it brings you as many chortles as it did us!

    It all started last December 24. My then 5-year-old suddenly realized that Pixel, our beloved Elf on the Shelf®, was going to be hitching a ride on Santa's Sleigh and heading back to the North Pole. For reasons that probably involved the fact that it was her first Christmas since her parents split up, little sister lost her damn mind over the imminent departure of our pointy-hatted little friend.

    Not even the notion that Santa was coming could calm her down at 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Not even her big sister saying she could sleep in her room with her that night could stop the flow of tears, so you know she was having a very serious case of the sads.

    You can use a lot of words to describe your typical 7-year-old: cute, sweet, spunky, sensitive. But "soulful" is usually one of those adjectives you save for folks who have a bit of living under their belts. Angelina Jordan from Norway defies all norms. The tot, who recently appeared on Norway's Got Talent barefoot and clad in a long white dress, brought judges to tears with her flawless rendition of Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday." Her performance has since been viewed and shared by millions of people around the world, who are blown away by this little girl's tremendous voice.

    Ever get an inkling your kid is up to something? It's not clear exactly what, but you know that he is hiding a secret of some sort from you? That is what one curious dad suspected when every day for two weeks his young son would take long walks without revealing where he was going. The man wondered what in the world his child was doing. What he discovered will bring you to tears.

    Moms, let's face it; buying toys for your kids is not as much fun as it should be. You have to worry about lead and toxins and what is all that plastic doing to the environment?!

    Answer: it's slowly, but surely, destroying it. So we'd love to do anything to do our part and help save this pretty green planet. Starting with the toys we hand the kids.

    And good news, Mom. The toy industry is finally listening! 

    We checked out this year's American International Toy Fair, and they've gone green.

    Girl Scout cookies are so scrumptious they can sell themselves, but it doesn't hurt when the young teen entrepreneur in charge of turning a profit for her troop knows where to find the best customers. Danielle Lei, who is 13, is a Girl Scout from San Francisco who is going to be the next Marissa Mayer. Instead of going door to door selling Samoas and Peanut Butter Patties, she set up shop right outside of a legal cannabis clinic and let her customers come to her. And, boy, she is killing it. Her parents are totally on board here, but are her actions promoting pot use among young people?

    The following post is from our sponsor, Proctor & Gamble.

    Tough is a great word, unless of course you’re referring to steaks or bullies. When I hear the word tough, it conjures up images of superhuman strength, unshakable fortitude, and quiet courage. I see mothers who are strong in their convictions, strong in their character, and strong in their actions. And it’s all in the best interest of their children.

    It’s rarely the easy way, but the tough way is so often what makes a difference in the long run ...

    Vampires are so totally last year. Now, it's all about the monsters, zombies, ghouls, and any other terrifying nightmarish creatures I fear so much. The 111th American International Toy Fair arrived in New York this week and it's showcasing the newest, hottest, and scariest toys that will be coming to shelves this year.

    Beware parents, the freakiest new playthings make noises, they crawl up walls, and have more heads and creepy eyes than we can ever possibly imagine. They are literally the stuff from my nightmares horror movies.

    By now, it's the phone call most parents locked in many frozen parts of the country have started dreading: the school-is-closed-because-of-snow call! Just when you think you're going to get a break in the day -- you're even looking forward to going to work because it gives you a few minutes to sip your coffee in peace and think -- you wake up to see yet another six feet of snow outside your window and find out your kids will be your shadows that day yet again!

    After experiencing the gazillionth snow day this year, the Holderness family did what it does really well. They made an hilarious video depicting a day in the life of parents who are expected to actually entertain their kids on these snow days -- for hours and hours and hours on end!

    This is a post from our sponsor, Proctor & Gamble.

    The first time they put my little 9-year-old girl in as goalie in her recreational soccer team, my heart sank. Goalie is something of a lose-lose position, particularly for a newbie. Stop all the balls and the best you get is a game full of stress. Miss a few and you’re responsible for losing the game. When her team lost during her first time in the goal, I had a sad little girl on my hands. “I was so bad at it, Mommy,” she said. Then she asked me a question that I’ll always remember. “Do you think I can do it?”
