Alright, fam, who is sick of dropping dough on a brand new outfit to wear to la sala on Noche Buena just to stuff yourself silly and fall asleep? Yeah, we are, too. Whether you grew up with Noche Buena ending in La Misa del Gallo (the only reason your fam cares how you look), or ending in a food coma, this is a new year.

Here’s the opportunity: whether you’re with your family or in your home church, we’re not wearing a prim and proper dress this year. We’re donating our money to Planned Parenthood, putting on a political tee, blazer and walk into that sala ready to smash the patriarchy.

These Are The Baby Shower Gifts You Should Include In Your Registry

Unless you’re filthy rich, you probably know that being alive in the United States is going to cost you a pretty penny. You also know that getting married and having kids is expensive, which is why a lot of people are choosing to skip out on these traditional customs. How can we afford to do all these things we’re told to do if we still have college debt and live at home? It’s nearly impossible. Unless you get help. That’s what is so wonderful about raising money via crowdsourcing and having registries because it does truly take a village to help you settle into adulthood and parenthood.

One thing you can never do is leave your baby alone for a second. Not on the bed and not on the couch. This ultra-sweet sleeping area is called Dockatot Deluxe+ Dock and while it’s a little pricey (closer to $200), it’s very useful, portable, and comfortable. 

Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Twins Bassinet

Twins are all the rage these days, but how can you manage both and your sanity? This crib takes care of them both! It comes with removable bassinets and they claim “is perfect for napping, making it easy to transition to a portable playpen” and comes with a quilted mattress pad which creates a comfortable nap space. It costs about $200 on Amazon, but it’s basically a two for one.

Ergobaby Carrier, 360 All Carry Positions Baby Carrier

This baby carrier ($124) comes highly recommended because it’s so flexible and is made perfectly for those wiggly baby bodies. Here’s how one reviewer described it: “We bought this carrier for two big reasons. 1: I detest lugging around a car seat or maneuvering a stroller in public. 2: My husband and I are a tad paranoid about child-snatchers. When I bought it I figured I would be the one using it the most, but it ended up being my husband that primarily wears it (he thinks I’m too clumsy and is afraid I’ll trip and fall while wearing her) and he really likes it. From the times that I have used it, I can say it was definitely worth buying and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.”

Pampers Swaddlers

There’s probably nothing you will need more than diapers. While you may want to go for the organic route, or for those super ambitious parents, the cloth route (good luck), you cannot go wrong with Pampers.

The main product that will cost you a ton of money is the stroller. You will have lots of cheaper options, but you want to go with a stroller that can be used in various ways and that can also grow along with your baby. But who will fork over almost $1000 for this ride? Your group of friends. Several of them can chip in for this much-needed gift. 

Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib

One thing we love to do is travel. But a baby on hand can make that really difficult. Thanks to the Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib we can finally have some peace of mind that our baby will be comfortable and we won’t have to be lugging around a pack n’ play. It’s also fairly inexpensive, just $200

Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag

Driving a minivan screams “I’m a parent!” so does the kind of diaper bag you stroll around with. This super cute Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag ($50 at Target) looks just like a backpack but it fits so much more. It’s also a perfect accessory to your stroller, which hangs on the handle. 

Philips Avent 3pk Natural Baby Bottle 4oz

My mom always said, “when a baby is drinking from a bottle, you must be sure they’re not swallowing air.” Those kinds of retro bottles are thankfully a thing of the past. These new baby bottles are perfect at making sure your baby is only drinking fluids and also super easy for them to grasp on to. 

Now that you know the presents you want, it’s time to choose a registry! Thankfully there are lots of options including Amazon, Target, Walmart and more

Dad Cries When Family Surprises Him With A New Truck And The Video Is So Wholesome

u/hoesueperez / Reddit

Dad’s can be the best, man. Whether they are showing you how to change a tire or supporting you when you are down, some dads just get it. When we grow up, it is always nice to remember what they have done for you and try to pay them back. That is what one family in Los Angeles did by buying their dad a brand new truck and he just couldn’t contain his surprise and emotions.

Avery wholesome video on Reddit is causing all fo the tears thanks to one emotional and grateful dad.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

In the video, you can hear the adult kids showering their father with love and they tell him they got him a new truck. In true dad fashion, he responds with, “Yo no quería nada” through tears. The whole video is one of unfiltered family love and appreciation and it is just the sweetest thing you can watch today.

Redditers are showering the poster with love and praise for the loving gesture.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

People can see the kind of work the man did to take care of his family. He is definitely not someone who took it easy and just let things happen. We all know at least one man in our family that has that some walk all because he had to take care of his family.

The video is a relevant and realistic look at their own families.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

This is something that can be said about the fathers of most immigrant/minority families. Fathers work hard to make sure their family can have a better life. Immigrants are some of the hardest working people and the way they are willing to sacrifice their bodies to better the lives of their families is admirable.

The amount of love pouring out from his family is all people need to see to make a judgment on his character.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

People don’t get a lot of love with having first given love. The amount of love and appreciation this family has for the dad is a direct indication of how much he has done for his family. This is one loving family and it shows.

The video is bringing everyone who sees it to tears.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

Admit it, you cried. We all cried. If you don’t cry to this wholesome af video, we cannot be friends.

And the dad carrying the beer makes the whole video that much better.

Credit: u/hoesueperez / Reddit

You know exactly what was happening before the video because he is carrying his beer. The family was just chilling at the end of the day like they usually do being a family. From beginning to end, this video is all about love and appreciation and we need more of this.

Watch the full video below.
