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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
