    Children get into the wildest spots, don't they? They find ways to climb, descend, and scale places and things we could never dream of conquering. But just wait until you hear this story!

    A 24-year-old woman in Lincoln, Nebraska reported her 3-year-old son as missing after she notice that he must have slipped out of the home when she went to the bathroom.

    At the same time, customers at Madsen's Bowling and Billiards restaurant also called the police when they noticed a little boy was stuck the arcade toy claw machine. He was hanging out and playing with the toys. Just having a grand ol' time!

    A little girl got the most thrilling and heartwarming gift of her life on her third birthday. Not a pony. Not a unicorn. Not a trip to Disney World. Better -- much, much better. When little cutie pie Bridget Carr was greeted by her mom with a gift so big it nearly dwarfed her, she couldn't contain her excitement. And like lots of kiddies, it took her forever to meticulously unwrap the giant red bow and green wrapping paper. But the surprise inside was well worth the wait -- and captured on video so we can all share in her joy at what she discovered inside: her military daddy just arrived home from Afghanistan!

    Beyoncé and Jay Z have the world at their fingertips and there's no doubt they could have thrown daughter Blue Ivy whatever second birthday bash their hearts desired. I don't know about you, but I was expecting something BIG -- a champagne bash at the Waldorf Astoria, maybe -- since we all know toddler birthday parties are usually more for parents and their friends than for the child of honor. Oh, and let's not forget the entertainers spent $200K on Blue Ivy's first birthday AND gave her a diamond-encrusted Barbie. So you can't blame me for making assumptions.

    But the duo did something far more surprising to celebrate their little girl. They held as much of a kid-centric party as you can possibly can (considering how much privacy you'd need if you were these two) and closed down Jungle Island bird sanctuary within the Miami Zoo to give their princess a fairly modest bash she'll never, ever remember.

    I don't consider myself a "helicopter parent," but if you were to ask my parents what they thought of my mommy-ing, they'd probably say I have too many silly rules about cookies and napping. And the one thing they'd complain about that's bugging them lately: she needs to let that child stay up later, especially on Christmas Eve. Let me explain. My folks, who like to maintain fairly traditional Italian holiday customs, enjoy hosting Christmas Eve at their home. They fry enough fish to feed 20 people and get a kick out of decorating every inch of their house. We don't sit down to eat until 8 or 8:30 and, if they had their way, we'd attend midnight mass and go back to their home for even more dessert. As much as I love my parents, their way of doing things on Xmas isn't exactly compatible with having a 2-year-old. And I can't help but wonder: is there a point where new parents should start taking over the holidays?

    New and pregnant moms are full of hope and wonder. We want to believe everything we see on TV or witness much cooler and laidback moms doing. So we begin to make plans to take our baby to crazy places or to stay at home and do Incredible Thing #1 and Incredible Thing #2 with them. We don't for a moment even consider that baby still needs diaper changes, 15 bottles or snacks or meals per day, or might have colic or need naps while all that incredible-ness is going on. I once had BIG PLANS for this child of mine. Needless to say, I've scaled back my expectations. But here are 5 things I swore I'd do with my baby when she was either still a baby or a toddler. Let the ridicule begin!

    If it were up to my husband, my 2-year-old would never hear the name "Santa Claus." Look, I think it's as strange as you probably do, given the fact that the object of his anger is an old man who seems pretty nice and wants nothing more out of life than to give your child lots of cool things in exchange for good behavior.

    Before we had our daughter, I never thought much about Santa, but assumed we'd use him to our advantage to get our child to behave like an angel for at least one month prior to the big day. And, of course, I looked forward to showing her all of the holiday movie classics that I loved growing up -- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Miracle on 34th Street, etc. -- none of which would exist if not for St. Nick.

    Then I learned from my husband that Santa is a source of evil. And I had no choice but to find a compromise that works for both of us.

    5 Ways TV Has Made My Toddler Smarter

    Another day, another report released about how television is sure to create little demons and criminals out of our kids. To be fair, the latest research isn't that damning, but an Ohio State University report has found that preschoolers who watch a lot of TV -- which includes being exposed to background television noise and having a set in their bedroom -- perform worse on assessments that test how well they can understand other people's "emotions, intentions, beliefs, and desires."

    I'm not going to try and dispute the findings of scholars who have worked for months or years to make these discoveries. But I am going to offer a simple counterpoint: in addition to breaking their souls and spirits, TV can actually teach our kids some pretty great things.

    Pink is facing some heat from fans after her husband Carey Hart posted photos of their 2-year-old daughter Willow going for a ride on his motorbike. Yes, a child on a motorbike on a dirt track. Of course they weren't speeding around and doing jumps. To me it seems to hold the same risk as taking your child on a ride on a bicycle. Hart is a retired motorcross racer. He has skill. Riding a motorbike for him is as easy as riding a bicycle for the rest of us. Besides, they were going super slow.

    Plus, viewing from the sidelines here in Internet gossip-land, I'd say Pink and Carey are great parents. They aren't reckless, and while I wouldn't ride with my 4-year-old on a motorbike, that's because I've never ridden on one. A four-wheeler? On a private track? Super slow? Let's go kids!

    As a mom who's coached her kids from the sidelines during assorted recitals and other performances involving hand/body motions set to music, I've noticed that essentially, toddlers on stage have three options: 1. Do the dance moves you're supposed to do when you're supposed to do them (this almost never happens). 2. Blank out, stare into space, and sway to some vague rhythm (the preferred choice of most tiny dancers!). 3. Go rogue and get down!

    The adorable little girl in this video's choice? #3. Think of it this way: Some kids march to the beat of their own drummer; others, like this kid, tap dance to their own crazy inner choreographer, and it's awesome.
