The Coley fam gets tested on TikTok.

You know what they say: The family that TikToks together, stays together.

The Coley family is certainly no exception. With their unbridled and contagious enthusiasm, it’s no wonder that they’ve amassed a following of nearly 2 million people.

One of their more recent posts has more than 7 million views, as the Coleys get tested on “who knows dad best?”

There’s no question this family enjoys one another. And it’s heartwarming to watch.


The first round started off easy: What is Dad’s favorite candy?

The answer was unanimous, and correct. Reeses (pronounced “REE-sees,” which sparked its own sidebar in the comments).

“That entire family pronounced that Candy wrong lol” one person wrote. Hey, at least they were united.

With each correct answer, the kids get a rigorous dap of approval from dad. All except Mom, who refused anything but a kiss and playfully slapped the dap away.

The next round got a bit more tricky: What is Dad’s favorite restaurant?

Though most got it right (Cooper’s Hawk), sadly, not everyone succeeded. Golden Corral is not, in fact, Dad’s favorite dining spot, despite one son’s guess.

Mom (who got it right, again) warned “if you try to dap me one more time,” but Dad effortlessly slid into a hug instead.

Third round carried romantic history: In what grade did Dad meet Mom?

This one was going really well until the last son guessed 8th grade. The correct answer was 10th grade. Hooray for these high school sweethearts!

Then, there was the tiebreaker round, where each family member had to guess Dad’s longest long jump distance in high school (23.1 feet).

Though they all get points for eagerness, the winner was the daughter in the purple hoodie. Which is made pretty clear by her passionate screams of victory.

The Coleys have been winning over hearts with their content, leaving some to ask directly if they could join the family.

“Do you guys have room at the table for one more,” one person wrote

Another commented, “I’m not gonna ask again to be adopted…what’s taking so long?”

I think after watching this video, we’d all like to be adopted by the Coleys.

@keecoley Had to see who knew mom the best 👀😂 #foryou#fyp#familyfun#competition#whoknows♬ original sound - Kee & The Coley fam

Sadly, the family was nowhere near as savvy this time. Equally hilarious though!

Some cries for help can be hard to discern.

“I’m fine.”

How easily these two words slip from our mouths, often when nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes, it feels safer to hide our true feelings, lest someone make a judgment or have a negative reaction. Other times, it’s a social rule instilled in childhood, perhaps even through punishment. Or maybe denying is the only way to combat overwhelm—if we ignore it all long enough, things will eventually get better anyway.

At the end of the day … it’s all about avoiding further pain, isn’t it?

But this denial can lead to even more suffering—not only emotionally, but physically as well. Everything from stiff muscles, to migraines, to digestive issues can stem from suppressing emotions.

The EAA AirVenture air show.

According to a series of Facebook posts, the Scholten family embarked on a 1200-mile journey from St. Albans, Maine, to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on July 22 to see the legendary EAA AirVenture air show. Known as the “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration,” the weeklong event attracts over 500,000 people to see more than 10,000 aircraft.

News Center Maine reports that 15 hours and 900 miles down the road, in Toledo, Ohio, the family stopped for a routine pit stop and got an incredible shock. Their cat Delilah had secretly hitched along for the ride in the family camper.

"I open the door, and there's Delilah," Andrea Scholten told News Center Maine. "I just screamed 'Delilah!' and my husband and the kids were like 'Delilah!'”

How breastfeeding actually works is seriously awe-inspiring

Let's take a moment to marvel at this miraculous process.

A viral video shows what's happening beneath the surface when a baby breastfeeds.

Let me start by saying I don't care whether you breastfeed or not. Everyone's circumstances are different, no one needs to explain why they did or didn't breastfeed their babies and we'd all be better off with far fewer judgments across the baby-feeding spectrum.

With that disclaimer out of the way, can we at least all agree that breastfeeding is freaking awesome?

I mean, the whole biological process of growing an entire human practically from scratch is mind-blowing all by itself. But the fact that our bodies then create food to feed that human, with a whole system for how and when that food gets made and released, is just so cool.
