Dad Walks In Son’s Room and The Boy Tells Him About His Dream.

images via – youtube.com

Remember when you were a kid and your one and only safe haven that you could pretty much all your own was your bedroom? Even though your parents owned the house or apartment you lived in, ‘your room’ was the closest thing you had that actually belonged to you and was a place where you could go and feel safe. Every few months you would move stuff around, get some new posters, stuffed animals maybe even a new tv once you were old enough. One thing was for sure though, your room was a direct reflection of your soul and personality.

Today’s story features an amazing dad and his son named Jack who was just about to grow out of his crib and get his very own big kid bed! Like many young kids, Jack was obsessed with trains, he loved every type from the vintage old steam trains to the new technologically advanced trains in Japan. He would have his dad read him books about trains and he would look through train magazines and memorize all the different types out there!

One day Jack told him about a dream he had where he was sleeping in a bed, but the bed was in the shape of a box car from a train. As he told his dad about the dream, his papa could see how excited he was getting and he wanted to do something really special for his son. He went downstairs grabbed some tools and a hammer. Put them all together, then headed out to the hardware store to get some plywood, and other materials as Jack’s dad was now determined to make young Jack’s dream a reality.

Jack’s dad worked and worked and finally after many weeks of blood, sweat and tears Jack’s dream train bed was ready to take on its main passenger who would be sleeping in this incredible bed for many years to come! That’s when dad realized it was missing one vital piece that would make the bed complete and absolutely perfectly. He went to the garage, got some stencils and red paint, and created an awesome looking sign that would hang above the bed that read, ‘Jack’s Steam Express’!

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few weeks and months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove. The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

Remove stubborn old bumper stickers cleanly and completely with WD-40. Simply spray the sticker with WD-40 and let it sit for a while, the sticker will absorb it, then you can peel it right off.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes. They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.

Use coffee filters to dust your car dashboard. Unlike cloth towels and paper towels, coffee filters won’t leave behind lint or just push dust around. Instead they work great at picking up dust and you can toss a few in the glove compartment for whenever you might need one to freshen up the dash.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper. It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them. Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would.

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets. Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

THIS Father and His Kid Noticed ‘Help’ Written In The Mud. Then They Hear a Voice and Discover The Unthinkable!

image via – youtube.com

Father and son trips can be the perfect time for some special bonding. Whether its a camping, hunting or fishing trip these are usually vacations that a dad and son will never forget. I remember going on fishing and camping trips with my dad when I was a young kid and they are truly some of the greatest memories of my life. While for the most part these trips can be stress-free, enjoyable and an incredible bonding time, sometimes the unexpected can quickly snowball and change everything..

In today’s story we feature a stepfather and his stepson who were going on a regular old hunting trip to enjoy nature in all her glory. They were expecting to build campfires, hunt, fish and all the other fun stuff that comes with an outdoors father/son trip. Their trip took place in Hayden, Idaho a city with a population of around 13,000. Although there is a decent sized population, the stunning landscapes and beauty of the surrounding nature pulls in travelers from all around the world.

The stepfather and stepson would go out to their cabin in the woods multiple times per year and it was always a great time. This time however, nothing could’ve prepared them for what was to come. Immediately when they arrived in Hayden something just felt a bit strange.

As they arrived in Hayden, they noticed an active search party looking for a girl who had gone missing earlier that week. The missing girl was learning disabled and although she was 19 year old, she had the cognitive capacity of a 9-10 year old. This was no small search party either, there were around 60 people searching. There were helicopters, terrain specialists, firemen, police officers and locals all scouring the region.

Before the stepdad and stepson arrived in Hayden they had already heard about the missing girl on tv and the radio. They believed that once they got there they could be of great assistance to the current search party do to knowing the entire wooded area like the back of their hands. As they made there way to their cabin, they would have to walk a bit down a dirt road to get to the secluded house. While they were walking on the dirt road they saw something they never could’ve believed. On the dirt path in big letters it said ‘Help’.

This seemed super creepy to the young boy but his stepdad thought it was most likely a hunter or someone from the search party just laying some tracks. He thought most likely it was another hunter who probably needed help moving a deer or something of that nature. However, the stepson had a gut feeling that this message had been written by the missing girl!

They took a picture of the ‘Help’ written in the dirt and ran it over to the search party that was about to pack it in for the day, call it a night and begin looking again early the next day. When they showed the search party the image they immediately called off the plan to end the search that night and they would follow that path to try and find the poor missing girl…..

Dad Overhears Something About His Son That Left Him In Tears. THIS Is His Response On Facebook!

image via – youtube.com

What you are about to view in the video below, is a father, Rob Scott, who needs to share his truth, after overhearing a moment between another father and his son.  The child asks what Downs Syndrome is, and the dad answers, “It’s a disease of not knowing anything”.

This response deeply bothered Rob, whose son was born with Down’s Syndrome.  What he experienced at that moment of hearing this other father try to probably simplify the condition for his child, was heartbreak.  He desperately wanted to correct what this father was telling his son, but didn’t have the courage to speak up.

What you are about to hear him say was recorded a few minutes after this occurrence.  Rob was upset with himself for not speaking up, and felt the strong need to record what was in his heart, as a way of standing up for his son who has been the greatest gift of his life.

His intention in recording this footage, was in no way motivated by a desire to shame the father who responded to his son’s innocent question in that way; he just needed “to karmically reset what just happened”.  Rob’s son, Turner, has been the greatest teacher about what the meaning of joy and love truly is.

He so aptly notes that the word “disability” is a term that encapsulates perception rather than fact.  His words brought me to tears; what he has to say is about so much more than Downs Syndrome.  Let us know your thoughts about this father’s moment of soul-searching honesty.

THIS Little Boy Picks Out A Barbie At The Toy Store. But His Dad’s Unexpected Response Is Now Going Viral!

image via – youtube.com

Children grow very quickly and their evolution encompasses all that they are. A child’s body and mind change so rapidly that, as a witness to their process, an adult can only accept, adapt, and encourage the development. To do anything contrary would be to limit the child from experiencing his or her own self.

When a child is fully supported, their small seeds of livelihood are able to take root and sprout into the beauty that they are. Their purity is maintained and harvested, paving the way for a bright future. Part of the adult role in a child’s life is to guide them toward proper behavior and away from destructive tendencies.

As long as this is done in a gentle, loving way, and the child is given full explanation of specific circumstances, the little one is happy to oblige and adopts the learned morals as their own. They begin to understand how to apply their strengthening values to events of their own life and the result is a well balanced, thoughtful individual.

But, just because a child is well behaved, does not mean that they are not repressed. If a child is not given the freedom to voice their own opinions and desires, the consequence is an unmeasurable backlash of anger and resentment which can manifest in a multitude of ways, over an infinite amount of time.

The father in this video acknowledged the importance of personality privileges for a growing child. He energetically advocated free choice for his sons so that they could openly be whoever they wish to be. The relationship is heartwarming and inspirational for all of humankind!

Dad Slices Open A Wasps Nest In Front of Them. What He Reveals Inside Is So Awesome!

There is something so mysterious and intriguing about what lies inside of things that we are usually not privy to.  Dan and his son Lincoln have created a YouTube Channel named, “What’s Inside”, where they open up all kinds of things together to discover what lies inside.  In the video you are about to watch below, we join them in discovering what lurks inside of a WASP’S NEST!

Obviously they were not going to go near a live nest, so they ordered one that was no longer inhabited, from eBay.  I find it so admirable that Dan has been sharing his curiosity with Lincoln, in exploring such fascinating things, by doing these in home “science projects”.  There is nothing better that a parent can model and offer a child, than the fostering of intrinsic curiosity about the world in general, and more specifically in the workings of nature.

After unpacking the wasp’s nest, you will see Dan begin the process of cutting open the nest, as Lincoln and his friend seem to be having a mixture of anticipatory excitement and a bit of squeamish fear.  I myself, watched with baited breath, as the cutting open of the nest proceeded.  Lincoln is a little bit afraid that there still might be a live hornet inside, despite the fact that they have been assured there is not.

When the cutting process is finished their gasps of amazement at the intricacy of the internal structure, matched my own.  Nature is just so fascinating, and the building capacity of the insect kingdom, is truly mind-boggling to view.  Get ready for some really amazing footage!

This Guy and His Son Moved Into An Old Gas Station. But When I Walked Inside It’s Incredible.

If you were a young boy, and your father took you to an old gas station and with great excitement asked you what you thought about living there, do you think you would jump with joy? Needless to say, it’s a rhetorical question! Robert Guthrie, an artist , kept looking at an old gas station with the idea of turning it into a home, but had to wait until he was able to afford it!

When he got the funds together and told his son he was going to turn it into a home for them to live in, his son really thought he had lost it! As you will see in the video you are about to watch below, that shows what an artist with a vision is capable of creating, you will be as blown away as his son and everyone who has seen it has been; the ‘before and after’ of this magnificent two-story loft is truly exciting
to behold!

Although he refurbished the outside, he maintained the look of an old gas station, but when you look inside Guthrie’s masterpiece of architecture with quirky details that incorporate parts of the original…WOW! The transformation is truly a testament to this artist’s imagination, vision and rare talent! Let us know what you think about this unusual living space.
