    Some people raise kids in the city. Some people raise kids in the country. And then there are the moms and dads who are raising kids in the military.

    Don't see the difference? Then you're obviously not a military mom! Military kids are like other American kids in many ways -- but they tend to move a lot more, have siblings born in far-flung places, and the language they speak is one that's all their own.

    Just ask a mom raising her kid in the service, and you'll hear a long list of signs her kids are "different." But don't take our word for it -- The Stir asked military moms for the telltale signs that they're raising military kids ...

    A 16-year-old boy took the idea of "running away" to the absolute extreme when he jumped a fence at a San Jose, California airport and stowed away on a five-hour flight to Hawaii. Authorities say the teen is lucky to be alive because he actually hid in the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines aircraft -- where he passed out, possibly because of the lack of oxygen and sub-zero temperatures.

    It's been almost five months since Paul Walker's untimely passing, and the battle for custody of his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, may have come to an end.

    Paul Walker had originally granted guardianship of his daughter to his mother, Cheryl Walker, and had left his entire $16 million fortune to the teen. Just last month, Paul's mother made the official move and filed for guardianship of Meadow. But she has now requested that her petition for guardianship be dismissed, and it could all be for the best.

    It was the Disability Day of Mourning to honor and remember disabled people killed by their parents or caregivers. Vigils were held around the country for people to gather for this purpose. I had been to last year’s vigil and decided to go again this year, but this year I was going to bring my kids. At first, the idea of taking my kids, at least one of whom is autistic, to an event where people would be talking about parents killing their autistic children seemed wildly inappropriate.

    But then I thought about Jack and how he is working to figure himself out and learning about self advocacy and the fact that he is excited to hear about autistic adults. I decided that it was, in fact, a really good idea to take him.

    I prepared all three of my kids for what would happen at the vigil and what they could expect.

    You love your kid. You cherish your kid. You adore sharing your life with your kid.

    Obviously.

    But, every once in a while, you ponder what it would be like to pee in peace, eat some chocolate without sharing, or clean up after only yourself.

    You wonder ... WILL MY KID EVER FREAKING MOVE OUT?!

    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!

    Ah, family vacations. The joy and the misery, amiright? Trips can be sooo much fun, but they can also be the source of some serious strife. Things really get interesting when your kids turn into tweens and teens: It seems like you just start getting used to them being able to sit through a meal in a nice-ish restaurant without eating all the crayons or throwing a tantrum, when all of a sudden, they reach the age where eye-rolling and earbuds are on the menu. Permanently.

    To make sure your much-needed (and deserved!) vacay time is smooth sailing, have your tween/teen signs off on these 10 little rules before you hit the road ...

    As long as there are cars and families, there will be family road trips. And just like in the olden days of our childhoods, there are still those classic road trip moments today that simply have to be captured on camera (and cameraphone and Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and ...). Things may look a little different now than in the days of 35mm film, but the need to capture those irresistible pit stops and roadside views from the family vacation remains the same.

    Let's take a look at some of those classic snapshots from then and their modern, must-have versions.

    Happy travels!

    If you ever wondered how a father really feels when he's faced with his "little girl" going off to her prom, look no further than an insanely viral photo making its way around the web. Taken by Jeri Dickey, whose son bravely opted to take former Auburn University head football coach Gene Chizik's daughter to prom, the pic has taken off like wildfire. It's easy to understand why: Chizik perfectly nails the timeless tough, overprotective dad stereotype we can't help but get an eye-rolling kick out of.

    Really, you just have to see Chizik's face as he glares at his daughter's date.

    Check out Dickey's initial tweet:

    Actor Paul Walker's daughter Meadow Walker has not had it easy these past few months. First her father dies, then the teen finds out she'll have to uproot and go live with grandma if she wants her giant inheritance, throwing her right in the middle of an epic custody war. But it looks like cooler heads are prevailing. Finally!

    Cheryl Walker, Paul's mom, may have gotten custody of her granddaughter in the Fast and Furious star's will, but the girl's mom, Rebecca Soteros, may not be losing her child after all.
