This Mom Of 5 Teaches Us What True Love Means: “Watch How He Treats You When Intagram Isn’t Looking”

LOVE

Kids nowadays seem to have different notions of love. What with the influence of social media, everybody seems to want to be in the spotlight.

What once was a way to show a gesture that you care for the person you are asking to the prom or the homecoming dance has now become the ultimate playing field. Promposals became a battle of who put the most effort money and who got the most likes on Instagram.

This is what this amazing Mom blogger pointed out on her post. It’s incredible how Amy Betters-Midtvedt who runs the blog Hiding in the Closet with Coffee was able to show the world what love is in just one simple photo.

Amy posted this photo of her husband who seemed to be entering a supermarket. Though it is not that apparent in the photo, Amy said her husband, Todd, was smiling. She named the post “This is what your knight in shining armor looks like in your 40’s

She seemed to be talking to the younger generations who have vague interpretations of love.

“Listen up young ones.

This is what your knight in shining armor looks like when you are in your 40’s.

Yes, that’s my amazing husband who is arriving on the scene with his credit card because what you can’t see is me, standing next to a cart super full of groceries that I couldn’t pay for because I couldn’t find my wallet.

Not sure you can tell, but he’s smiling at me. Yup…he had to leave work and he is smiling. His only words of admonishment were, “You’re not supposed to be grocery shopping I said I’d go this week.”

Seriously.

Young people, this is what love looks like when you’re old and it’s ridiculous how awesome it is.”

Amy and Todd were high school sweethearts, now they are happily married with 5 kids. Amy them proceeded in describing what love is for her.

“Young people, this is what love looks like when you’re old and it’s ridiculous how awesome it is.

Love also looks like me coming downstairs to a full pot of coffee every morning because coffee is love.

Love looks like all the lunches being made already so I can enjoy that aforementioned cup of coffee.

Love looks like someone washing the dishes while his wife catches up on This is Us while plopped on the couch not helping at all.

Love looks like a super patient dad doing the 5 year old’s homework with him every morning so I can get to work on time.

Love looks like running to the store before bed after your wife has forgotten to buy milk because you know the morning will be easier if we can serve up some cereal.”

Now we see how deserving Todd is, for the affection that Amy is letting us know.

But apparently, the post is not to brag about her husband (which we would understand even if she did), but to tell the young ones what love really is. Hint: It’s not the big teddy bears and the chocolates and the Instagram-worthy promposals!

“Young people, listen.

Do not be fooled by big, showy promposals and giant cards with candy bars glued to them with some cute saying or by your name spelled in pepperoni by a boy who’s asking you to homecoming.

That isn’t the stuff that lasts and let’s be honest…moms are totally helping them with those things.

Watch how he treats you when Instagram isn’t looking.

And that my friends is true love.”

Are you a new mom who struggles with putting your baby to sleep? Or a dad who can’t figure it out either? If you’re someone who finds it hard to cradle a baby to sleep, here’s a guide for you made by genius mom from Three Day Nanny.

According to moms Gina Ford and Kathryn Mewes, crying babies can be left crying until they stop. This helps them understand that they can’t be picked up at all times. They will eventually lay low with their crying games.

Another tip that has for other moms is to avoid eye-to-eye with their kids if they are trying to get them to sleep. Although many questioned this trick, a lot has agreed.

Emily-Jane Clark, another mom, and a writer share her own advice on how she gets her kids to sleep.

1. Get in your comfortable clothes are prepare for bed

Because getting a kid to fall asleep could get you drowsy, too. It is advisable that you prepare for bed together with your kids so both of you can rest well.

2. Plan out your nightly routine

Full-Time moms don’t usually get things planned out very well because they know for sure 90% of them won’t get accomplished. However, if you want a more convenient way of putting your kid to sleep, it is helpful to organize your own schedule and activities while lying in bed.

3. Deep sleep

Before moving an inch, make sure that the baby is in deep sleep and not half awake. This way, you won’t wake him/her up when you transfer.

4. Drink coffee– lots of it

If the child will only sleep on you or with you, prepare cups of coffee! If your kid is a newborn, you want to stay awake while cradling the child because if you end up sleeping, the baby might end up on the floor. Keep your eyes on him/her.

5. Eye contact

Contrary to the tip by Ford, Clark says keeping an eye-to-eye contact is important. Their look will give you an extra boost of energy during groggy midnight routines.

Traveler Gets Arrested for Wearing Too Many Clothes, Gets Refused on Plane Twice

One traveler who tried to cheat the airline by wearing many layers of clothing to allegedly keep him from paying excess baggage charges was refused boarding by an airline. He was arrested, then, refused boarding by the next flight he booked the following day! Ouch.

Ryan Carney Williams, who uses the handle Ryan Hawaii on Twitter, took to social media to express his disappointment after British Airways refused to let him board the plane after he put on the clothes that wouldn’t fit within his check-in baggage in a flight from Iceland to England.

Cops were soon called to arrest Williams after he put on eight pairs of pants and ten shirts. He accused the airline of racial profiling, saying he had done nothing wrong except put on the clothes that were in excess of his baggage allowance. He further claims he wasn’t trying to cheat the airline but just couldn’t afford to pay for the excess.

He also claimed he had been polite throughout the incident but the airline’s ground crew had called the cops on him for ‘unruly behavior’.

According to Williams, the cops arrested him at Iceland Keflavík International Airport, sprayed him with mace, and held him on the ground despite him staying polite and just refusing to leave the counter – but why would he leave the counter, anyway, when he was actually trying to get into the flight?

He was brought to the police station where he formally gave his report. The plane flew without him.

After missing the flight over the incident, Williams booked one with EasyJet the following day but though he was able to go through check-in and security without problems this time, he was refused boarding at the flight gate – again!

He was told that he was not allowed on board because of the previous day’s incident with British Airways. Ironically, though, his luggage was able to fly ahead as it had already been checked in at that flight.

It angered Williams to be stuck in Iceland with no money – and no more luggage! He took to Twitter to express his frustration. Fortunately, while reactions varied from netizens, he did receive a refund from both airlines.

He was later able to finally fly to England on a Norwegian airline. Whew.

Being a housekeeper is a noble job. They help us to our day-to-day lives, without them, people can’t go through to their busy schedules.

Lee was once an employee at a restaurant who only earned TW$30,000 (approx. US $1017) per month. But one day, he decided to switch career and become a full-time housekeeper, and guess what, it turned out to be the best decision he ever made in his life!

“Many families in Taiwan have dual incomes. Since both the husband and wife need to head out to work, they have no time to take care of their home. This is where housekeepers like us come in to help sort things out,” 

Aside from his main job which includes cleaning the house and other normal chores for a housekeeper, Lee was required to clean the client’s tortoise. Easy, right? Well, read on.

You may think cleaning tortoise is an easy task but it’s not. Cleaning the client’s tortoise require skills and should be done with extra care.

Lee would first brush the tortoise’s’ shell and repeat the process on its belly. He then would try to remove any possible dirt from the shell. For that, he earned TW$80,000. Just be careful not to hurt the tortoise and scratch its valuable shell if you want to keep the job.

Same as to the most of us, Lee works ten hours a day, only he’s paid double or triple our salary for being a housekeeper.

Boy, doesn’t it make you want to switch jobs?
