    Parents are a child's first teacher. And face it, that little mumbling and teetering tot learns everything from you: how to talk, how to stand, and even how to walk. And at some points, you can be amazed just how incredible their impersonation of you can be. Take one comic-in-the-making, for example, who has perfected his imitation of mom, complete with grunts and a forward-facing belly. That's right, the baby walks just like his pregnant mom.

    And it's all with the flip of a switch. That just makes this video so much better. Take a look:

    Okay, so this is how it works, right? You apply sunscreen everywhere the sun could possibly reach you, then you go out into the sunshine, and then you enjoy your day without getting burned. Simple formula, right? So why are so many of us still getting burned? It's not that difficult. And yet! Look at all the painful ways people get sunscreen terribly, horribly, excruciatingly wrong. OUCH!

    Ask any stay-at-home mom, and she'll tell you she's heard it all before: How lucky they are to get to hang out all day with their little ones, how "fun" and "easy" it must be, how jealous others are that they too wish they could sleep in, get their nails done, have all that "free time!" What a life! Actually, what a laugh riot for SAHMs who know all too well that they actually have a tireless full-time job, and their day looks nothing like the Leave It to Beaver, shiny, glossy example some might imagine.

    Here, what a day in the life of a SAHM really looks like ...

    Farrah Abraham already has loads of screen time under her belt, what with her episode of 16 and Pregnant, four seasons of Teen Mom, and not to mention her venture into adult films with her sex tape porn video Backdoor Teen Mom. Yup, this girl has been lighting up our screens for years, and we still can't get enough.

    Have no fear! Farrah's coming through for us, and this time she'll be larger than life on the big screen. She recently told Us Weekly, "I will be acting in two movies ... and I’m kind of staying closer to roles that are Christian-based."

    One of the most wonderful parts of summer is enjoying fun in the sun on the beach, though I think we can all agree that visiting the beach with a baby in tow is no picnic. From the extra gear you need to pack to survive the day, the diapers full of sand, and the constant worry about baby getting a sunburn -- it's really a wonder that any parent attempts such a feat at all.

    Here are 13 photos that pretty much sum up why babies and beaches are simply NOT a winning combination.

    Sometimes when you have a friend or family member who announces their pregnancy, you have to be all sappy and send them a heartfelt note of congratulations that makes flowery references to this special journey/miraculous time in their life. Then there are your awesome friends, to whom you can say things like, "Dude, congrats! Also, welcome to eight months of living in Fartville, Population: You."

    For your pregnant pals who don't mind a little sarcasm along with their heartburn, here are 10 congratulatory cards that are more what I'd call "real talk" than Hallmark. After all, pregnancy is an amazing gift ... one that's frankly best enjoyed if you can laugh at the less-than-perfect moments.

    Who knows how it started or why it amuses most children so much, but the "I got your nose" game has helped millions of parents get out of tricky situations (read: tantrums) by stopping them dead in their angry or sad tracks and making them laugh uncontrollably at the idea that someone took their noses off.

    But one little girl was so not amused by the game. In fact, the idea of her adorable nose being stolen and not returned to her made her totally freak out. And, like all good parents who want to preserve these precious moments so they can show them to their children when they're older, this mom and dad caught the whole thing on video.

    Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel had no idea George Clooney was going to grow up to become the hunk 'o' man he did, and we can't blame her. As everyone's favorite '80s TV snob, Blair Warner spent nine years playing the girl who got every guy she wanted. But, in real life, she never snagged Clooney and has some interesting things to say about him. You may remember he was a star on the sitcom in its later years -- remember when the girls all lived above and worked at a store and Mrs. Garrett's sister (played by Cloris Leachman) took over for the show's matriarch?

    Yeah, they weren't my favorite episodes, either, but I might have felt differently if I were working with George ...

    There are some very good reasons why you'd want to get a spray tan instead of a sun tan. Cancer, for starters. Why risk skin cancer when you can get the same effect with just a brief visit to a salon? Well ... almost the same effect. If everything goes perfectly. And you remember not to wear those little booties. And you remember to take off your watch. And -- wow, there's a lot of things that can go colossally wrong when you fake 'n' bake. Don't commit these spray tan fails. (But do laugh at them -- shh, we won't tell!)
