This note written by parents to their kids is pretty much what every parent wishes they could write ... but few would likely achieve success if they did.

Parents' Note to Kids

If you're a parent, you know sleeping in is living the dream. In fact, if you have young kids, you've likely forgotten what that concept even feels like.

If nothing else, your perspective on what sleeping in means has no doubt changed. But even one day of regular rest can change a lot, if you can finagle it.

How can you? Please read Exhibit A above, from start to finish.

The way mom outlines what they can and cannot do, and basically tells them how it's gonna be, all with smiley faces and love? It's the work of a master.

The major caveat is that the author of this persuasive manifesto is mom to two bigger kids (ages 8 and 10), but she tells Reddit that it was a success.

As for how you keep toddlers out of the bedroom ... good luck.

Jon Gosselin does not hold back when it comes to Kate Gosselin, her lifestyle or her parenting. He's upping the ante now, though, from a legal standpoint.

His attorney, Mark Heller, is quoted as saying that a custody battle is looming between the two, and that the father of eight is looking to raise the stakes.

Heller says Jon will "most likely" be taking legal action against Kate over what he perceives to be a violation of a provision of their custody agreement.

This latest beef between the long-feuding parents stems from a beyond awkward Today appearance by Kate and their 13-year-old twins, Mady and Cara.

Jon's negative response and then the twins staying mum about their dad on The View culminated in his decision to take action, according to his lawyer.

Heller explained that their custody deal stipulates that if Kate leaves town or needs to leave the kids with a babysitter or nanny, Jon has first right of refusal.

In other words, he can opt to have the children stay with him instead if he chooses, yet Kate Gosselin has never given her ex that privilege, Heller says.

Last year, the birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby captivated the celebrity news world, and not just because the two larger-than-life celebs mated.

The name the duo picked out, North West, was an all-timer.

A unanimous, first ballot Celebrity Baby Name Hall of Fame inductee, North was clearly chosen after Kimye crossed off every other possible option.

Of course, they're not the first stars who treated naming a child like some sort of "art" or just totally mailed it in because they were too busy and/or high.

Seriously, coming up with baby names this dumb takes either serious commitment or total aloofness, both of which are forever worthy of our admiration.

Who else makes the HOF along with Nori? Let's find out.

Behold, the 17 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Baby Names:

17 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Baby Names
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.


Destiny "Miley" Cyrus

2. Destiny "Miley" Cyrus

Yes, Miley's real name is Destiny ... which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but Billy Ray and Tish probably guaranteed she'd become a stripper someday with that moniker.


Apple Martin

3. Apple Martin

Ironically, Apple is both the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's daughter and likely the name of a food item forbidden in some rich crazy-person diet she probably follows.


Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale

4. Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale

We got nothing.


Kal-El Cage

5. Kal-El Cage

Nicolas Cage named one of his kids Kal-El, a fact not related to him being wasted out of his mind in this mug shot ... although that could explain a lot of things.


Bear (Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone)

6. Bear (Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone)

Not only did she torture us with The Reader, Kate Winslet is making her newborn's life terrible with Bear as his name. Alicia Silverstone chose this name too. And she chews up Bear's food for him, which is also interesting.


Blanket Jackson

7. Blanket Jackson

Blanket Jackson is not actually the name of the youngest child of Michael Jackson. It's Prince Michael Jackson II ... not to be confused with Prince Michael Jackson I (also pictured). As for his nickname, he was wearing a Blanket while MJ dangled him over a balcony. Good times.


Jermajesty Jackson

8. Jermajesty Jackson

Jermajesty. Michael's brother Jermaine outdid him with that one.


Suri Cruise

9. Suri Cruise

Suri Cruise, the child of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is a bona fide cutie. Who will have to spell and explain her name approximately 10 times per day as an adult.


Tu Morrow

10. Tu Morrow

Actor Rob Morrow named his daughter Tu. GET IT? That's either a great play on words or the dumbest thing ever. Maybe a little of both.


Moxie Crimefighter

11. Moxie Crimefighter

Moxie Crimefighter is the daughter of Penn Jillette. That is all.


Pilot Inspektor

12. Pilot Inspektor

Pilot Inspektor is the son of Jason Lee. That spelling you are reading here is accurate.


Princess Tiaamii

13. Princess Tiaamii

Princess Tiaamii is the daughter of busty British babe and reality star Katie Price. We feel bad.


Denim

14. Denim

Toni Braxton named her kid Denim. Apparently "Polyester," "Suede," and "Cotton" were taken.


Kyd

15. Kyd

Yes, Kyd. David Duchovny mailed that one in worse than his alleged acting on Californication.


Bronx Mowgli

16. Bronx Mowgli

Bronix Mowgli, the son of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, is named after a borough of New York City AND a Jungle Book protagonist.


Maxwell Drew Johnson

17. Maxwell Drew Johnson

Jessica Simpson named her little daughter Maxwell. Perhaps she is trying to overcompensate for giving her an old man's name by putting her in this bikini.

Vanessa Cervantez, despite being just 5'1", recently gave birth to her third child, son Andrew Jacob Cervantez, who entered the world weighing a staggering amount.

His measurements? 15 pounds, 2 ounces and 24 inches in length!

15-Pound Baby!

This has yet to be officially confirmed, but Andrew is reportedly the biggest baby ever born in California. Ever. He arrived two weeks before his due date.

Vanessa visited her doctor at 38 weeks and, after a routine test, was told her baby's movements had decreased and he was having trouble breathing.

She was admitted to the hospital immediately and received an emergency C-section, which resulted in the birth of a child double the size of the average baby.

After his birth, "little" Andrew had to be transported to a different hospital's NCIU because he was still having breathing difficulties after he was born.

Hopefully, with the looming end of America's longstanding military involvement in Afghanistan, clips like this become all the more common as 2014 progresses.

CBS This Morning documented a surprise reunion in North Carolina, where Marine Sgt. Kyle Street came home early after his fourth deployment in six years.

When his wife opened the door, her reaction was priceless ... as was her response when asked about the first thing the couple wanted to do upon being reunited.

Questions that probably don't need to be asked in retrospect, CBS. The second clip below, in the same video, shows a different kind of military relationship.

Derrick Jenkins, 13, was shooting free throws at basketball practice just before his unexpected reunion with his mother, who had been on tour in Kuwait.

His reaction to seeing her creep up on him is amazing. Check it out!

Two girls under the age of 13 were reportedly given tattoos by a babysitter who was subsequently arrested - as was the kids' mother, for how she responded.

Three Virginia adults in all - the babysitter, mother, and her boyfriend - were all charged with felony child abuse after the situation went from bad to worse.

Much worse.

According to reports, Alexander Edwards (left), 20, recently decided to give the young girls tattoos while they were under his care. It's not clear why, or of what.

Soon enough, their mother, Melissa Delp (center), and her boyfriend, Daniel Janney (right), returned home and saw what Edwards allegedly did to them.

At that point, Janney tried to remove the tattoos himself ... by burning them off.

"There was an effort to cover these tattoos up," said a sheriffs' department officer of the children. "It didn’t help the situation any. It added more scarring."

Kate Gosselin and her twins Mady and Cara visited The View Monday, and things went only slightly better than their now-infamous Today Show interview Friday.

Last week, the 13-year-old girls refused to speak in an extremely awkward Today interview. On The View, they were talkative and seemed happy to be there.

Except when it came to one topic: Jon Gosselin.

When Barbara Walters asked, “Do you talk to your father?” the two looked at their mom in discomfort. Kate urged them to answer. Mady turned red and did not.

Awkward. Again.

The twins, who have six younger siblings, also talked about their parents’ divorce, with Mady saying “it didn’t really affect me” because she was so young.

An Instagram photo of two gay fathers, Kordale and Kaleb, has gone viral for a number of reasons, some of which you might not expect at first glance.

Kordale and Kaleb, who have three kids and a sizable social media, have been receiving homophobic and racist backlash after sharing the image below:

The idea of two gay black men raising kids, it seems, is just too much for Twitter to take. Even some positive responses are more like backhanded compliments.

Many of the more overtly racist, homophobic Tweets have been removed, but the ones like "finally a black gay couple" are equally as problematic to the duo.

Most of the positive feedback hit on two key points:

  1. That Kordale and Kaleb are a black gay couple, in general
  2. That it was nice to see black men taking care of children

Indeed, the controversy surrounding this photo raises many broad cultural questions. Kordale and Kaleb responded to them in a statement to the Huffington Post:

By now, you must have seen the clip:

Kate Gosselin and her twin 13-year olds appeared on Today yesterday morning, only for Mady and Cara to grow silent and Kate to berate them in front of a live television audience.

The awkward footage simply solidified Kate's place as the worst celebrity mother on the planet... or did it?

Kris Jenner might have something to say about that. The Farrah Abraham sex tape makes a compelling case for this former Teen Mom star. And Nadya Suleman? She just got arrested for welfare fraud.

Jon Gosselin hates to say he told us so, but...

For the past few weeks, the former reality star has been trashing his ex-wife, referring to Kate Gosselin as broke and greedy and expressing outrage that she still used the ex-couple's children for publicity.

Then, this morning, this happened:

Kate dragged twins Cara and Mady on The Today Show to dispel the notion that they've been ruined by all the attention... only for the kids to grow silent when the topic arose.

And for Kate to scold the on national television.
