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.

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

Hold on, Frankie! Mama's coming!

How do you explain motherhood in a nutshell? Thanks to Cait Oakley, who stopped a preying bald eagle from capturing her pet goose as she breastfed her daughter, we have it summed up in one gloriously hilarious TikTok.

The now viral video shows the family’s pet goose, Frankie, frantically squawking as it gets dragged off the porch by a bald eagle—likely another mom taking care of her own kiddos.

Wearing nothing but her husband’s boxers while holding on to her newborn, Willow, Oakley dashes out of the house and successfully comes to Frankie's rescue while yelling “hey, hey hey!”

The video’s caption revealed that the Oakleys had already lost three chickens due to hungry birds of prey, so nothing was going to stop “Mama bear” from protecting “sweet Frankie.” Not even a breastfeeding session.

Oakley told TODAY Parents, “It was just a split second reaction ...There was nowhere to put Willow down at that point.” Sometimes being a mom means feeding your child and saving your pet all at the same time.

As for how she feels about running around topless in her underwear on camera, Oakley declared, “I could have been naked and I’m like, ‘whatever, I’m feeding my baby.’”

The gift that keeps on giving

The Giving Keys inspire wearers to dream, create and pay it forward

The Giving Keys is a jewelry company that's a bit unconventional, only because they believe that all of their gifts are meant to be regifted. It's a pay it forward, give on to others type of mentality and it in turn gives their pieces that little bit of extra meaning. Each of their keys comes with a story attached, once you decide exactly what that is...

10/10. The Mayyas dance.

We can almost always expect to see amazing acts and rare skills on “America’s Got Talent.” But sometimes, we get even more than that.

The Mayyas, a Lebanese women’s dance troupe whose name means “proud walk of a lioness,” delivered a performance so mesmerizing that judge Simon Cowell called it the “best dance act” the show has ever seen, winning them an almost instant golden buzzer.

Perhaps this victory comes as no surprise, considering that the Mayyas had previously won “Arab’s Got Talent” in 2019 and competed on “Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.” But truly, it’s what motivates them to take to the stage that’s remarkable.

“Lebanon is a very beautiful country, but we live a daily struggle," one of the dancers said to the judges just moments before their audition. Another explained, “being a dancer as a female Arab is not fully supported yet.”

Nadim Cherfan, the team’s choreographer, added that “Lebanon is not considered a place where you can build a career out of dancing, so it’s really hard, and harder for women.”

Still, Cherfan shared that it was a previous “AGT” star who inspired the Mayyas to defy the odds and audition anyway. Nightbirde, a breakout singer who also earned a golden buzzer before tragically passing away in February 2021 due to cancer, had told the audience, “You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” The dance team took the advice to heart.

For the Mayyas, coming onto the “AGT” stage became more than an audition opportunity. Getting emotional, one of the dancers declared that it was “our only chance to prove to the world what Arab women can do, the art we can create, the fights we fight.”
