Tennessee mom’s school drop-off parody video goes viral

While the start of school comes as a relief for many parents eager to get their kids out of the house, for others it means having to wake up early and deal with the dreaded school drop-off line.

One mom parodied the experience in a video on social media, which people have found so relatable that it’s been viewed over 7.5 million times.

Comedian Susannah B. Lewis shared the video on her public Facebook page, Whoa Susannah, which explores “drop off woes for my moms who clearly aren’t morning people.”

"Look at her. She been up, dressed, worked out this morning, took a shower. Overachiever," she says of another “mom” in the video.

“Pull up to the cone,” Lewis shouts.

“We’ve been in school a week and she’s still taking pictures of him walking into this building.

“I’m about to get out, beat on her window and tell her to move up. I would, I would if I wasn’t sitting here in pajamas and had brushed my teeth.”

Lewis clearly isn’t the only one who’s dealt with these issues while taking her kids to school. Other parents shared their own frustrations and tips in the comments section of her post.

“Can’t all schools just make huge signs starting at the back of the drop off area that say things like, ‘get ready!’ ‘here we go, unbuckle!’ ‘last chance for kisses!’ ‘bags on, assume positions’ ‘prepare to exit the vehicle in 50 ft’ ‘TUCK AND ROLL!!!’….? Please?” one person suggested.

“This is so me. It is as if people see the flashing lights of the school zone and completely lose their minds!” someone else wrote.

“People at my son’s school (grades 3-6) will actually put their car in park and GET OUT OF THE CAR WHILE IN LINE to open the door for their kid,” another frustrated parent shared. “Your 8+ year old is perfectly capable of opening their own door and exiting the vehicle unassisted. Time to cut the cord, lol!”

Lewis’ video had received over 9,000 comments and 95,000 shares as of Wednesday afternoon. The mother of two joked that she always goes viral when her hair hasn’t been brushed and she isn’t wearing makeup or a bra.

Georgia woman gives birth in Chick-fil-A parking lot: ‘It was intense’

Chick-Fil-A was the scene of a yet another miracle Sunday, as a Georgia woman unexpectedly gave birth in the chicken chain’s parking lot.

Marcie Masselink and her husband, Scott, were on their way to a local hospital in Dallas when Marcie began to have “severe contractions." Scott decided to pull the couple’s minivan over, despite the fact they were only a few miles from the nearest hospital, WFMY-News reported.

Moments later, Marcie gave birth inside the car, which was parked outside the restaurant.

Masselink said her husband pulled the car over "just in time."

"[Scott] was great considering what happened,"Masselink said. "He stayed pretty calm under pressure, but it was pretty intense and emotional. I wouldn’t recommend it."

The couple’s baby, who they named Oakley Ann, is healthy, according to WFMY-News.

This isn’t the first time Chick-fil-A has played a part in someone’s birthing story.

Last month, aTexas woman gave birth to her daughter in a Chick-fil-A restroom.

Robert and Falon Griffin were meeting a family friend at the fast-food joint to drop off their two older daughters before heading to San Antonio’s University Hospital.

Unexpectedly, Falon began to have intense contractions and went into labor, giving birth in the restaurant’s bathroom. The chain later offered the baby Chick-Fil-A for life and promised a job when she turns 14.

A spokesperson for Chick-fil-A did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment Tuesday afternoon.

How to lighten hair without damage (and what to do if it’s too late)

Whether you want just a few baby highlights, a subtle sun-kissed look or a full-blown platinum makeover, lightening your hair in any capacity can potentially wreak major havoc if you’re not careful.

But according to celebrity colorist and balayage expert Abby Haliti, whose client list includes Olivia Palermo, Sigourney Weaver and Rita Ora, it is possible to get the lighter color you want without leaving behind a tangled mess of broken straw-like hair … as long as you take the right approach.

Haliti, who recently opened Abby Haliti Salon in Maplewood, N.J. and works a few days a week in New York City, believes when it comes to color, less is more. So before you beg your stylist to bleach your hair that trendy white-blonde color you saw on Kim Kardashian, read Haliti’s tips first.

Fox News: What’s the number one rule people need to follow when lightening their hair in order to prevent damage?

Abby Haliti: Have patience, take it slow, and remember that sometimes, less is really more. We’re exposed to so much now with social media, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the latest trends and feel like you need to have your hair just like, let’s say, Olivia Palermo, but there’s always more to it than what you see online. I’ve had clients who expect to look like Olivia Palermo after one session, and that’s just not how it works. You can get to where you want to be, but if you want to prevent damage, take it slow. As I always say, Rome wasn’t built in a day — neither is the perfect balayage.

Is there a general guideline for determining how much lighter someone can go?

Ultimately, I would say to do what makes you happy and comfortable. If you’re genuinely unsure and want to take precautions, determining the undertones of your skin can help you decide. Picking a tone that is opposite of your skin’s undertones can be used as a general guideline.

How frequently can someone bleach their hair without totally destroying it?

It all depends on a variety of factors (mostly what state your current hair is in), but I would say about six to eight weeks if you really want to be safe. Once you have new hair growth, the bleach should only be applied along the new hair.

Can someone devoted to blow-outs and heat styling realistically lighten their hair?

Sure, but taking the proper precautions to keep your hair healthy and moisturized is important in this case. Adapt to your needs. If you heat-style nearly every day and bleach frequently, incorporate more moisturizing products into your routine. And obviously stop if you notice that your hair is becoming damaged. Personally, I would recommend bleaching less if you’re devoted to blow-outs and heat styling.

Celebs are always posting dramatic hair transformations on Instagram … one day they’re dark brown, the next they’re blonde. How do they do it without causing all their hair to fall out?

Costly products! Treatments! Wigs! Celebs have access to many more expensive things that can help mitigate damage as much as possible, and even though those transformations seem abrupt, sometimes those changes took hours to achieve. Also, celebrities have personal assistants and hair stylists who are there with them every step of the way. And remember, social media doesn’t always show the entire picture. Certain products and treatments can make hair look very shiny and “healthy” temporarily, when in reality the hair can be damaged.

Are there any warning signs someone should look out for when visiting the salon?

If a colorist says a brunette can go platinum in one visit, run, because that’s probably not someone with your best interest at heart. Look out for any stylists who sound unsure of the advice they’re giving you, or who don’t give you any feedback at all. A colorist should work with you, and help you determine what is best, and make sure that you’re aware of any risks that you’re taking. Personally, I have turned away clients who wanted drastic changes such as that. Healthy hair is my number one priority.

What are some steps a person can take to keep their lightened hair healthy?

Don’t overdo it with the color and heat styling. Allow your hair some time to recuperate from any recent color treatments. Find a good stylist who cares about the health of your hair. Don’t be afraid to get treatments done, like Olaplex or Milbon, especially moisturizing ones. And make sure you get your hair trimmed regularly. Most importantly, find a shampoo and conditioner (preferably sulfate & paraben-free) that is meant for colored hair.

If someone has already damaged their hair from over-processing, what can be done to help it recover?

If your hair has become damaged and you’d like to fix it, patience and willpower is key. It’s better not to bleach or heat-style for a few months and eventually resume, rather than continuing to make the problem worse until there’s no hair left on your head. Getting your hair cut regularly is crucial when it comes to repairing hair. Look into products that have healing properties. Almost treat it like skincare. Don’t be afraid to throw on a moisturizing hair mask when you feel like you need it. Definitely stay away from any more coloring until your hair is repaired. Choose a shampoo and conditioner that are sulfate-free and don’t shampoo your hair too often as this strips away all of your natural oils. Honestly, if you don’t know where to start, find a good hairstylist who can help guide you on what to do when it comes to repairing your hair.

Hybrid bikini-bodycon dress confuses Instagram: ‘This is a huge no’

A single item of clothing hasn’t caused this much confusion since the “blue or gold” debacle of 2015.

Last week, clothing brand PrettyLittleThing shared an image of its new “Green Metallic Asymmetrical Ring Detail Bodycon Dress” to Instagram, where it promptly divided followers with its half-bikini, half-bodycon construction.

Described on the brand’s site as having “green metallic fabric with an asymmetric design, ring detailing and a bralet-style design,” the dress was somewhat more difficult for Instagram users to wrap their heads around, as noted by sites including Design Taxi and Insider.

While a few praised the look, calling it “smoking” and “terrific,” some weren’t so enthralled.

“What in the unflattering mess is going on here?” asked one user.

“This dress is so unflattering even on this beautiful model. Not cute at all,” another wrote.

“Looks like she couldn’t decide on what to wear so she cut both in half and sewed them together,” someone theorized.

Yet another added, “I must be getting old because this is a huge no from me.”

“When ur going to the family dinner at 10 and the club at 11,” said another.

“I want this dress for when I breastfeed,” another wrote. “Easy access.”

Jill Duggar Dillard slammed for ‘horrifying’ salad dressing recipe

Jill Duggar Dillard is being taken to task on social media for her “horrifying” salad dressing recipe, with some critics declaring that the sodium-heavy concoction is “a heart attack waiting to happen.”

The former "19 Kids and Counting” and “Counting On” star shared recently a seven-ingredient salad dressing recipe” to her Dillard Family blog, which she claims to use on a variety of recipes.

According to Dillard, the “Voeller Salad Dressing Recipe” calls for a cup of light olive oil and Dijon mustard, with Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, tamari, or soy sauce, as well as honey, lemon juice, thyme and pepper, to make about a cup and a half of the dressing.

FRANCE, BELGIUM ARGUE OVER FRENCH FRY ORIGINS

“The Voeller family visited my family many years ago and made many delicious, healthy dishes. This is one we really love. It goes well on salads, potatoes, pasta and more!” the 26-year-old mother of two tweeted to her 205,000 Twitter followers.

InTouch Weekly was quick to call out the concoction, wondering, first, who the Voeller family was, and second, pointing out that the recipe “basically consists of salt, salt, and salt.”

“Another day, another horrifyingJill Duggarrecipe!” the outlet stated, point out that mustard and soy sauce’s high sodium levels were not the healthiest.

“How has no one had a heart attack yet?” they wondered.

Twitter users, too, soon chimed in.

“Better check your cholesterol after that. It’s a heart attack waiting to happen with these recipes,” one critic clapped.

“Soy sauce ruins it. You duggars just love your sodium,” another agreed.

Others, meanwhile, voiced support.

“Looks yummy!” one wrote.

“Looks like a tasty dressing. Love reading the recipes you put out,” another said.

According to Yahoo Lifestyle, this isn’t the first time that the fourth eldest Duggar child has been dragged for her recipes.

Dillard previously caught heat for her “Cheesy Chicken and Rice Enchiladas” recipe that was likened to a “recipe for hypertension and coronary artery disease."

Likewise, her cinnamon toast recipe featuring half a cup of sugar for four slices of bread prompted one commenter to advise she "take a nutrition class at a local college."

Michigan church apologizes after breastfeeding mom accused of inspiring ‘lustfulness’

One Michigan church has publicly apologized to a woman who claims she was shamed for breastfeeding inside the house of worship by a church leader, who described her actions as immodest and potentially inspiring “lustfulness” in men.

The Livingston Daily reported Monday that Ben Walls, Sr., lead pastor of The Naz Church in the Detroit suburb of Brighton, apologized to Amy Marchant for the June 17 incident on behalf of the parish.

The 29-year-old mother of three claims she was shamed for breastfeeding her one-year-old daughter inside the church while waiting for her four-year-old twins to finish Sunday school.

“Of all the places, it is most hurtful when it comes from your own church, that you are going to cause guys to lust after you,” Marchant told the Daily in an Aug. 9 interview, stating that she received a private Facebook message from a female church leader after she nursed her baby near the children’s worship area.

KINDERGARTNER’S FRUSTRATION WITH FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL GOES VIRAL

According to Marchant, she had gone to pick up her twins from the Sunday school area when her youngest child “was getting fussy and asking to nurse.”

“I sat down on a bench and decided to nurse her like always,” she said. “I don’t use a cover.”

Later in the day, she was shocked to receive the social media message from the unnamed church leader shaming her for her actions, though no one said anything to her at the time.

“She said that "nursing fully exposed," the term she used, was making people uncomfortable,” Marchant recalled of the note. “She told me to cover up, use an empty classroom or go down to the main worship area, to part of the bathroom, but which has a nursing area attached to it. It wasn’t presented as an option. She told me to do one of those three things from now on.”

“Even if I wanted to go somewhere private, that’s not reasonable when I have to watch my 4-year-old twins, and legally speaking, it’s not something she is allowed to ask,” she added.

Pastor Walls said church staffers told him that Marchant “was wearing a dress that was pulled down with both of her breasts exposed,” the Daily reports, but that The Naz is “very sorry” for the humiliation caused to Marchant.

“We have nothing against breastfeeding and we are in favor. It’s very hard because we understand that she was very hurt and we apologize to her,” he told the outlet. “We’re very sorry for the embarrassment and hurt caused when she was asked to cover or use one of those rooms. We apologize for her hurt and embarrassment;that wasn’t the intention.”

The lead pastor added that there are three discreet areas in the church for “those who want a private space” to nurse.

Marchant met with church leaders to discuss the issue and the Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act, which was approved by Gov. Rick Snyder four years ago. The law prohibits women from being denied public goods, services, facilities and accommodations because of breastfeeding.

Church staff seemed more focused on continuing to describe the incident as “immodest” and questioning whether she planned to sue than addressing the issue, she said.

“A lot of people have stopped nursing because of stuff like that, and I want to say something because a lot of people wouldn’t,” Marchant said.

Marchant said she doesn’t plan to return to the church.

Texas woman arrested for marijuana takes mugshot, gets requests for makeup tips

A Texas woman was arrested earlier this year, and her glamorous mugshot has sparked requests for a makeup tutorial.

Marshala Perkins, 19, of Dallas, was arrested for marijuana possession on Feb. 6, the Star-Telegram reported Wednesday. Her mugshot was posted to the "Mugshot Baes" Twitter account, in which photos of attractive arrested women are featured.

In her mugshot, Perkins appears to have her facial makeup contoured, with bright pink eyeshadow, with a hint of sparkles, and false eyelashes.

Perkins told the newspaper that the night she was booked, she was just "bored," adding, "I was just going to go out with my friends looking the way I was looking," she said.

One Twitter user quote-tweeted the photo, and said, "We need a tutorial! Free her!" which received 280,000 likes as of Thursday.

The aspiring makeup artist said she had performed a tutorial on Facebook Live before she’d gone out with her friends the night she was arrested.

"I sat in my car for like two minutes waiting on my friends and while I was waiting a police car pulled up right behind me," Perkins said.

More on makeup…

  • The officer, after running her license and registration, reportedly smelled marijuana and asked her to get out of the car. Perkins said the cop found two grams of marijuana in the vehicle.

    Initially embarrassed that her mugshot was posted by police online, the former Texas A&M University at Commerce student has since come to appreciate the newfound appreciation for her makeup skills.

    "Someone has reached out to me about starting my own makeup line. It’s crazy. My mind is blown," Perkins told the Telegram. "Now it’s turned into something so positive so I’m just going to embrace it and see where it takes me."

    Twitter’s ‘Matilda Challenge’ is much safer than ‘Tide Pod Challenge’

    Believe it or not, the latest viral video challenge trending on social media does not endanger participants: The “Matilda Challenge” is evidently quite wholesome and safe, unlike the recently popular "Tide Pod Challenge" and "Hot Water Challenge."

    In recent days, the #MatildaChallenge has been trending on Twitter, with jokesters from all over the world sharing videos to the platform of themselves “using” telekinesis in an ode to the hit 1996 children’s fantasy flick "Matilda."

    In the film, inspired by a Roald Dahl novel of the same name, a young, book-loving genius uses her incredible mental powers to escape her mean-spirited family and school principal.

    Though the titular character, played on the silver screen by Mara Wilson, could use telekinesis to pull pranks and hijinks on those who wished her ill, real-life #MatildaChallenge jokesters rely on friends, hidden from the camera, to "magically" move around nearby objects.

    It remains unclear at this time exactly why #MatildaChallenge videos began trending 22 years after the movie’s release, but the funny fad is nevertheless gaining serious traction online, with hundreds of thousands of views pouring in on some of the most popular clips filmed everywhere from school classrooms to people’s homes.

    Massachusetts mom celebrates ‘rainbow baby’ with stunning photo shoot after stillbirth

    One expectant Massachusetts mother celebrated her “rainbow” baby-on-the way with a dramatic photo shoot that honored the “traumatic loss” of an infant just months ago, when she was 24 weeks pregnant.

    As Chelsea Karr eagerly prepares to welcome a second child in September, she says she will always keep alive the memory of her “sleeping angel,” a baby girl whom she and husband Hollis Brodmerkle had named Chloe Jade, Love What Matters reports.

    In October 2017, Karr learned that she had a concealed placental abruption, and the child did not survive.

    “When I found out I had lost her, I blacked out. It felt like my world just went numb. I couldn’t even cry,” she told People in an August 9 interview.

    “I just felt like I had to puke and I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone. It was like my whole world just stopped and went black. I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t cry, I couldn’t do anything. I just laid there. It felt like a part of me died right then and there.”

    Two months later, Karr and Brodmerkle, who are also parents to a three-year-old son named Oliver, were shocked to learn that Karr was pregnant again, in news that left her “terrified.”

    “I was terrified. I knew my body physically would fully heal but emotionally I was not expecting it at all. I was still so broken from losing Chloe… Those feelings haven’t gone away,” the 28-year-old from Ashby told the outlet. “It’s always in the back of my head.”

    Photographer Karr chose to wait until she was 33 weeks pregnant to share the news with her friends and revealed the announcement with an emotional, striking photoshoot.

    In one powerful image, Karr poses in a white dress in front of colorful rainbow smoke bombs, rising high into the sky. According to Woman’s Day, a "rainbow baby" is a child that follows a miscarriage, neonatal death, stillbirth, or infant loss.

    “A rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds,” Karr captioned the photos on Facebook.

    In the days since, over 800 likes and hundreds of supportive comments have poured in on Karr’s post, but she is most glad that her story is raising awareness.

    “It’s been so cool that my daughter’s story is being so heard. I’ve had so many other women reach out to me saying how my story has touched them, and how they never talked about their loss,” she told People.

    “It’s such a taboo thing. It makes me feel so good that I’m helping so many women feel less alone and feel more open to talking about their loss.”

    “It’s made me feel so good and Chloe, I know she would be so proud,” she added.

    Weightlifter at Canada gym attacked mid-workout for making too much noise

    A young man lifting weights at a gym in Canada was attacked by a bystander who got angry about how much noise he was making.

    Video of the incident was posted to YouTube Thursday by the man’s trainer, Pete Rubish. In it, 19-year-old Charles Lalonde, is doing deadlifts with a 350-pound barbell at Buzz Fit gym in Montreal, Quebec, and then dropping the weight after each rep, the Montreal Gazette reports.

    WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

    VIDEO OF VIOLENT MCDONALD’S BRAWL IN ILLINOIS MAY LEAD TO ARRESTS, POLICE SAY

    Out of nowhere, a man walks over to Lalonde mid-lift and steps on the bar bell, knocking it out of his hands. He then starts yelling at the teen, saying, “You’re out, you’re out.” The two get into a verbal altercation and then the man shoves the boy, nearly knocking him into the wall.

    According to Rubish, Lalonde had been reprimanded by gym staff members in the past for deadlifting too loudly, so he placed mats under the weights at the gym’s recommendation.

    Lalonde eventually walks away and turns off the camera that was recording the fight. Rubish posted in an update on YouTube that Lalonde is “grateful for all the support” and plans to press charges against the unidentified assailant.

    The man who attacked Lalonde has since been banned from the gym and a Buzzfit staff member in connection with the incident has been suspended, Craig Johnson, head of operations for Buzzfit gyms, told the Gazette.

    Johnson also said he’s tried to contact Lalonde in order to offer him and his family a lifetime membership.

    According to Rubish’s update on YouTube, however, Lalonde was reportedly given a year-long free membership to his dream gym in Montreal, the SSP Barbell Club.
