When NFL coach Deland McCullough — who worked with the Kansas City Chiefs’ running backs in 2018 — was just over one month old, his 16-year-old mother, unable to provide him with the proper care, gave him up for adoption.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

Most new parents can’t take their eyes off of their baby, and who can blame them? A baby’s smile can be one of the most heartwarming things in the world, so it’s no surprise that people like to set up a little photoshoot of their latest offspring to show off their sweet face!

On the other hand, babies aren’t ALWAYS that cute. They fuss, they cry, and they produce very stinky diapers. Therefore they don’t always make the best models, as you can see in these 20 baby picture ideas gone wrong…

1. The photo on the left was probably a great source of inspiration for these parents. After all, who doesn’t love a happy dapper baby boy wearing a bow tie? The result on the right, however, doesn’t have the same effect.

2. One kid seems very relaxed about the idea of getting a younger sibling, while the other, well…doesn’t seem quite as excited about giving up that only-child lifestyle.

3. A little girl pyramid is absolutely precious, but it takes a lot of practice. Let’s just say, the kids on the right may not be quite as ready to make the cheerleading team.

4. Who doesn’t love getting kissed by both of their parents at the same time? This guy! Nobody wants to be smothered with affection, not even babies. We don’t blame you for that expression, dude.

5. This baby looks relaxed, the father looks happy, and the big brother seems to be having fun, so what could possibly be wrong in this picture? Oh yeah, it’s the total lack of diaper.

6. You know what babies can’t do? Read. Though one of the babies seems perfectly content with that fact, the other does not understand why his parents would force societal pressures on him at such a young age.

7. The young lady on the left looks both excited and graceful, wearing her pink tutu and matching pink flower headband. Perhaps the girl on the right is just mad that her parents chose a yellow theme instead. We see a diva fit beginning in 3…2…1…

8. Some kids look up to their parent so much that they try to be just like them. The girl on the right, however, looks like she’s just mocking her pregnant mother.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

9. We’re not sure how the left picture was pulled off in the first place. Is the little one wearing a red romper? Is that watermelon even real? The baby on the right doesn’t know and does NOT want to find out.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

10. Babies love to be wrapped in towels and blankets – it not only keeps them warm, it soothes them as well. Perhaps the baby in white was wrapped a little too tight or they’re offended by being photographed while looking like a burrito (even if it’s the cutest burrito we’ve ever seen).

11. While the top baby seems to be peacefully sleeping, the other one seems to be completely and totally over this photoshoot. “Roll me over already, mom! Why do you have to be like this?”

12. While the first baby looks like the epitome of zen, immersed in a deep meditation, the second looks like he’s exhausted and has decided to take a nap. Either way, they’re both adorable.

13. As we’ve established before, babies need boundaries. This baby is probably worried about whether or not his mother’s lipstick is cruelty-free. Maybe mom’s crazy. Maybe it’s Maybelline.

14. It’s hard to find a baby-sized Santa hat for your Christmas themed photoshoot, but it’s pretty important that it fits, or else your child’s entire head disappears into this festive chapeau.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

15. The idea of making your kid look like it took a bite out of Alice in Wonderland’s shrinking cake does seem a little odd, and the baby on the right is not on board with it. After all, most kids like to proudly proclaim how big they are, not how they fit into a coffee cup.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

16. The previous dad whose shirt is covered in baby poop can tell you how dangerous it is to leave your baby without a diaper. This little one spared his family members, but got a faceful when he emptied his bladder during the shoot. Oddly enough, he doesn’t really seem to mind.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

17. The little boy on the left seems to really enjoy his cupcake, loving those sweet sugary flavors and having fun making a mess. The boy on the right just wants to take a bath and wonders why his parents would tease him with frosting he’s not allowed to eat.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

18. We can’t really blame the baby for this photoshoot fail. Photography is all about angles, lighting, and composition. If you take a dark photo of your baby face planting on your bed, the results are going to leave something to be desired.

These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

19. Even if your baby is fully clothed, you are not necessarily safe from its bodily fluids. This baby probably had a bit too much milk, and thought he would kindly return it to his mother.

20. For some reason, people love a baby in a sailor costume. Though one of these young boys is ready to sail off into the sunset, the other doesn’t seem quite so on board. The wild open seas are not for everyone…These Families Tried To Show Off Their Babies And The Results Are Not What You’d Expect

Although some of these photos surely made for some great laughs, not all were a success. Let’s hope we can learn from these mistakes and know what not to do when we photograph our little ones!

Parents, this is an interesting read. I’ve never met a parent at ease with the fact that their children watch television.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

When a couple decides to have children, the first difficult challenge these soon-to-be parents face is choosing a name. They want to pick something that will fit their child as they grow, and sometimes they feel a unique name is what will suit them the best.

Though there are plenty of special names out there, each one has a very specific meaning. Moms and dads can only hope their child grows up to embody their name, but these 20 parents went the extra mile to make sure of it…

1. Tennessee: Reese Witherspoon named her son Tennessee, which brought the name some popularity. The name means “winding river,” but most people just think of the Volunteer state when they hear it.

2. Frederick: Okay, so this name may not be as unique as some of the others on this list, but the meaning behind it is a great one. It means “peaceful ruler,” and in a world with so much violence, we need more Fredericks!

3. Harper: This name refers to someone who plays the harp, which means parents who name their children Harper may, in fact, have hopes that they become a classical musician.

4. Charlotte: Prince William and Kate Middleton named their daughter Charlotte, which means “freeman.” Of course, it’s also the name of everyone’s favorite literary arachnid.

5. Ophelia: Many people overlook the wonderful meaning behind this name due to it being associated with the tragic heroine of Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. However, the name means “help,” which is what makes the world go around.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

6. Qui Ante: You would definitely not forget a person with this name. Not only is it super different, but it means “brave warrior,” so the person who has it probably has a very strong and memorable personality, as well.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

7. Ottilie: This is a name you don’t hear every day. It means “wealth,” so if you meet someone named Ottilie, it more than likely means they have a big bank account, or at least their parents hoped they would earn one.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

8. Aislinn: This name originated in Ireland and it means “dream.” All parents dream their children will grow up to be happy and healthy, so what better moniker is there?

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

9. Rafferty: Meaning “abundance,” this name is typically a surname. However, parents can flip the script and make it a first name if they want to. Let’s just hope a child with the name doesn’t grow up to be a hoarder.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

10. Eilidh: This name looks pretty bizarre on paper. It means “sun,” and it’s pronounced just like “eyelid.” This kind of makes sense since you have to squint your eyelids when it’s sunny.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

11. Anthony: Many parents may have strayed away from this name after Tony Soprano from The Sopranos was putting hits out on people. But, the name means “priceless one,” and we all want to think of ourselves as priceless.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

12. Astrid: Parents who name their children Astrid have very high hopes of their physical beauty standing out from the crowd since the name means “divinely beautiful.”

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

13. Elsa: This name became super popular after the Disney film Frozen came out. It means “pledged to God,” so naming your kid this one has all sorts of religious connotations.

14. Jacob: When the Twilight movies were crushing box offices around the world, people were divided into two groups: Team Edward and Team Jacob. Those who went with Team Jacob were rooting for a man whose name refers to someone who “overthrows rulers.”

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

15. Ruby: People who are into fancy jewelry definitely know what rubies are, and they probably have some in rings or necklaces. Naming your child Ruby most likely means you think they’re a gem.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

16. Jayne: There are plenty of women named “Jane,” but you don’t often find the spelling to have the letter “Y” in it, like “Jayne.” When spelled this way, it means “God’s gracious gift.”

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

17. Haven: Parents who don’t want to be so obvious as to name their child “Heaven” can simply remove the “E” and make it “Haven.” It sounds pretty, and it refers to the eternal place of beauty.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

18. Tabitha: This name means “gazelle” in Aramaic. A mother and father who give their child this name probably want them to flow gracefully through life, much like the animal.

19. Isis: Although this name means “Egyptian goddess of the moon,” the terrorist group ISIS has, unfortunately, put a near-complete halt to anyone using it.

20 Rare Baby Names With Even More Unique Meanings Behind Them

20. Tate: This is a rather unique name you don’t hear too often. It means “cheerful,” and aren’t those the kinds of people we strive to surround ourselves with?


Picking out a name for a child can be overwhelming, but in the end, most people make the perfect choice.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

As a kid, you were probably scarred by a neighbor yelling at you to get off his or her lawn. Yet as an adult, you’ve probably at least been tempted to shout away a few trespassing kids yourself. Well, one Virginia man shouted so much, that he had no choice but to try something different.

Every morning, local children caused a disturbance outside his house. But, no matter how he addressed the problem, the kids kept coming back. So finally, the frustrated man tried a new solution so extreme that the authorities were called in…

By 2018, Bryan Tucker of Sandston, Virginia felt like a caricature of an old man: he spent his mornings shouting at kids to get off his lawn and devising methods to best send the message.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

See, Bryan lived behind a bus stop where young kids waited for a ride to elementary school. Those kids played loudly on his well-maintained yard, and worse, they often left behind trash.

“They don’t respect other peoples’ land,” Bryan said. So he called the county, and “they refused to do anything about it. They said it was my responsibility if the kids get hurt on my land.”

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

So Bryan put up no trespassing signs. He installed cameras on his property. He incessantly asked the children to stay off his lawn. He even asked the parents to keep the kids off the lawn. Nothing worked.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

As the new school year approached — and with visions of liability lawsuits dancing in his head — Bryan launched a plan he hoped would finally end the trespassing problem.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

On the first day of school, parents bringing their kids to the bus stop saw a new addition to Bryan’s home: a fence wrapped all the way around his yard. Then a parent touched the newly erected fence…

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

…and felt a shock! Shaking his hand from the sting of the shock, the parent understood the new addition to Bryan’s yard — an electric fence! And he wasn’t the only one to realize it.

“My daughter walked out and said ‘he’s got a fence up,’” another neighbor said. “Then someone said it was electric and I said ‘whoa no!’ If something happens to one of those kids they’re going to have a lot of angry parents.”

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

Local parents banded together in outrage, but each parent was bothered by a different aspect of Bryan’s countermeasure. It bothered concerned parent Wayne Milby, for instance, that Bryan didn’t put up a warning sign.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

But Bryan showed news crews that there was indeed a sign… 15 yards away from the bus stop. It was slapped on the battery that powered the fence and read “Solar Intellishock.” It had pictures of cattle on it.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

Other parents noted that, while the shock wasn’t painful, it sent the wrong message; “I understood his concern,” one neighbor, below, said. “I just don’t think he understood the neighbors’ concerns.”

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

As one parent put it: “The first day of school, really? C’mon now.” The timing made the fence feel more malicious than a genuine protective measure. So neighbor Wayne offered an alternative solution for Bryan…
Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

“You know, a regular fence,” Wayne said, probably would’ve worked just fine. Frustrated with Bryan’s fence, neighbors called the county police at 9:15 a.m. that morning.

That same day, Henrico County Public Works Director Steve Yob arrived at Bryan’s house to inspect the fence and measure the yard. But if the fence was on Bryan’s property, it was completely legal.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

Steve’s findings? Engineers took measurements and did research, he said, “and [Bryan’s] yard starts further off the road from where the fence is. Where that fence was put is clearly county right-of-way.” In other words…

Bryan had to take down the fence because it wasn’t technically on his property. He did so without a fight. He “made a mistake and offered to correct it,” Steve said. But Bryan wasn’t giving in just yet…

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

In truth, Bryan didn’t anticipate that parents and the community as a whole would be so outraged by the fence. But he was happy the fence started what he called an important conversation.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

“The message has gotten across, I’m pretty sure, to everybody,” Bryan told the local news. “It’s all over social media. Neighbors are driving by, parents are posting and talking about it.”

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far
It’s unclear whether Bryan took the fence down permanently or just moved it back, but parents hoped he’d take after the house’s previous tenant and just put out a trash can for the kids.

Man Sick Of Neighborhood Children On His Lawn Takes Things Too Far

Either way, with the word out there, Bryan could give his vocal chords a rest from yelling at kids to get off his lawn! And, more importantly, hopefully, the neighborhood kids could get to school without getting shocked!

Given liability concerns, Bryan had every right to worry about kids on his lawn — let’s just hope he found a solution a bit more humane than an electric fence.
