Always Go Swimming With Strangers

Story by James S. Kim. 

Do you remember when you were taught important life lessons? Leave it to Ye-bin, an adorable little Korean girl, to make a completely hilarious and aww-inducing mess of things when it comes to learning about strangers.

Ye-bin’s mother asks three different times what she should do if a stranger came up and offered cookies, ice cream and even take her swimming. Ye-bin replies, “I like that!” to every single situation, even adding in a shoulder shimmy to show her enthusiasm.

The second time around, after being corrected by her mother, Ye-bin seems to be on point. Cookies? A firm “No!” Ice Cream? “No!” Swimming—can she go three for three? Swing and a miss.

Ye-bin does have some excuse for her poor showing. She doesn’t seem to be fully engaged in the conversation, as there seems to be a television running off the screen that has most of her attention. She probably only heard snippets and “cookies,” “ice cream” and “swimming,” to which any proper child would say yes to—not from strangers, of course.

These Naptime Adventures Are A Must-See

According to Parenting.com, babies are incapable of nightmares because they haven’t yet grasped the concept of fear. Instead, their dreams are filled with silent, vivid images. So what exactly do babies dream about during these sleep-fests? Researchers are still in the dark when it comes to knowing what babies actually dream about, but Queenie Liao certainly has an adorable way of showing what she thinks these dreams consist of.

Liao, mother of three, decided to utilize her baby’s naptime for some creative art. Using household materials such as blankets and stuffed animals, Liao makes every naptime photo an adventure.

Her photo art album, Wengenn in Wonderland, consists of over a hundred naptime adventures with Liao’s son, Wengenn. Trust us, it’s quite a delight.

If baby dreams are anything like the ones Queenie Liao imagines, then we certainly have something to be envious about.

Must-See Video | Martial Arts Has NEVER Been This Cute

We’ve definitely shown you quite a number of cute children on this site. In July, we brought you the Adorable Asian Baby Overload. More recently, we threw some Halloween costumes on these babies and came up with the Halloween Costume Edition. Needless to say, these adorable children pull at our heartstrings and apparently we’re not the only ones.

This video has an incredible 1,430,000+ views and over 3,000 likes. Clearly, many people were just as taken with the cuteness. Although this video was put up in 2011, it appears to be going through yet another round of viral attention. This is probably thanks to Buzzfeed  and Reddit who have called this “The Cutest Taekwondo Match Ever.”

Don’t believe us? See it for yourself below and don’t worry. Check out those smiles- they’re far from hurting each other. In fact, they might just end up hurting us after smiling so much.

 

 

Aww of The Day: Dogs Help A Baby Learn to Crawl

What could possibly be cuter to watch than a baby learning to crawl? How about adding some dogs into the mix?

This adorable Chinese baby, nicknamed Maple Syrup, is undeniably cute as he crawls his way over to the camera. The family’s two adopted dogs, Brown Sugar and Rice Candy, decide to make the video even better and automatically imitate the baby.

We’re not sure if the dogs are simply following his lead or helping him with moral support, but we’d like to believe the latter.

According to ET Today, the mother simply wanted to show others that pets and babies can be best friends. Lucky for her, she was able to spread this message to a lot of people. The video has only been up for a little over a week and it has gained over 1,880,000 views. Clearly, cuteness is worthy of viral attention.

As it turns out, the trio is rather accustomed to fame. They have their own facebook page with over 63,000 likes and a handful of squeal-worthy photos. Check out the video and some of the photos below.
