    Cameras in the delivery room are not a new thing. Countless parents are choosing to film the beautiful (and emotional, and let's be real, graphic) arrivals of their little ones to forever commemorate each and every detail of the process. But then, what do you do? When do you choose to view the birth video again? And better yet, when do you finally sit down and have your child watch their entrance into the world?

    There's currently a video going around of an 8-year-old girl watching her birth video with her mom. It's sweet and beautiful and she has all the emotions, but the most interesting part is that she's able come out (no pun intended) seemingly unscathed. Sure, it's a precious moment shared between a mother and her daughter, and no doubt, one that they'll both remember forever. But let's just pause for a second and really think about when parents should be showing birth videos to their children.

    Sometimes it's hard to believe that mom was anything else than just mom. It's weird to think that she was also once a rebellious teen, a hilarious college student, and dare we say it, a real person! But it turns out she was, people! And the stories she has and the secrets she keeps are totally and completely hilarious! If not a little bit 'creepy.' So for this year's Mother's Day, Jimmy Kimmel decided to expose these secrets from mothers' youths and simply asked: What's the most shocking thing your kids don't know about you?

    Whether it's their sexcapades (ahh, earmuffs!) or the scary way they treated their childhood toys, moms definitely have some amazing truth bombs. Just check them out:

    The dangers of twerking are real, people! Just ask one mom who was practicing for an online dance-off, when her toddler daughter unexpectedly walked into her break-dancing zone.

    All was going well, the booty poppin' game was on point, until the baby decided to make a cameo appearance in the music video. And isn't that totally real? Kids can come out of absolutely nowhere and surprise us. Luckily, she's totally fine, and the mom said that she "didn't even cry." 

    But just check out her face!

    I've been writing online for a long time, and I thought I'd address a few questions I've had over the years about how the sausage gets made. Excuse me if this is a little insidery, but I wanted to talk a little about how and why we're now inundated with "You Won't Believe How This Smiling Baby Will Change Your Life!" and "35 Funniest Sidewalk Signs of All Time" posts on Facebook and Twitter.

    There are a few types of web content, the most prevalent of them being "online journalism." I wrote a book about it, and it's what I've been doing for most of my professional career. And I'm part of the problem. Let me explain.

    I missed one of the most touching ads during the Super Bowl on Sunday. It was played during the fourth quarter, which would probably usually be a good airtime, but in case you haven’t heard, the game was basically over by that point.

    Anyway, I’m glad I caught it on YouTube, because it’s definitely one to tug at your heartstrings and make you feel happy to be alive today. It’s from Microsoft and asks the question, “What is technology?” which sounds like a snoozer, but then you get reeled in with watery eyes when you see the amazing blessings technology has brought to people.

    You've got to admit it: lots of us will watch some pretty inane things on YouTube just because. From videos of parents letting their kids gets mauled by cats to clips of teens shamelessly pouring their hearts out to their girlfriends, anything goes these days. One of the latest viral video trends is one I totally don't understand but find fascinating and, dare I say, even a little inspirational? It seems a great many people love to watch other people eat food.

    If this "movement" has a star, her name is Park Seo-Yeon, a South Korean woman who goes by the name "The Diva." The Diva cooks big meals for herself each night -- everything from noodles to pizza and steak -- and streams herself from 8 or 9 p.m. until whenever, just sitting back at her table alone, eating every morsel of her yummy creations. And get this: she earns more than $9,000 a month from eating -- which was enough to quit her full-time job!

    The Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers game took place back on Sunday, January 19. Despite the hype that was the Manning vs. Brady showdown, the NFC Championship game was definitely the one to watch that day. It ended in spectacular, even controversial, fashion, when the 49ers were about to take the lead in a last-ditch drive down the field. But the Seahawks' super-impressive defense stepped up and intercepted the ball in the end zone, culminating in what everyone couldn't stop talking about after the game: That infamous Richard Sherman interview.

    But here's something a little less controversial that's been making the rounds all week in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. A bunch of die-hard Seahawks fans were tasked with watching the NFC Championship game in complete and utter silence. That's right, not one word. If they succeeded, these members of the Seattle Youth Football League would walk away with $5,000. A huge and daunting task for even the most casual of football fans!

    You know how everything changes when you become a mom? You spend nine months getting ready for this little person to enter your life -- you read the books, you set up the nursery, you oooh and aww over teeny-tiny newborn clothes ...

    And then they hand you the baby after going through what is likely to be the most physically demanding and painful experience of your life, and all you can think is -- holy crap, I made you!

    Well, we mamas might have made these kids, but they're the ones that made us moms.

    Montreal native and tennis champ Eugenie Bouchard will make history on Thursday, as she becomes the first Canadian to play a semi-final match at the Australian Open. She is only the second Canadian to reach the semis in any of the four Grand Slam tournaments, and if she wins, she’ll be the first one ever to win a final.

    Even better than that though is that Bouchard came in as the underdog, ranked 30th in the world. Granted, being the 30th best tennis player on the planet is a pretty great accomplishment, but to win the number one spot, that’s a lot of places to climb against some pretty incredible talent.

    A typical day at the office usually involves coffee, important meetings, creative brainstorms, game-faced strategizing, snacks and more coffee, and tons of hard work, right? Sure, of course it does, but not just all of that! From Spanx to poor punctuation in gossip posts, managing procrastination to Miley Cyrus, we've got A LOT running through our heads -- all day long.

    Thus, we here at The Stir thought we'd solve the mystery that is what women are really thinking while we're in those meetings and cubicles! If you thought everything we muse about in the office was all snoozey business all the time, whoo, are YOU in for a wake-up call!
