    3. New parents cope with stress by recreating iconic movie scenes
    Lilly and Leon Mackie moved from New Zealand to Australia and, shortly after, had a baby. To cope with the stress of being first-time parents and being new in the neighborhood, they decided to recreate iconic movie scenes with they six-month-old baby Orson. It first started with a scene from “The Life Aquatic [with Steve Zissou]” since it requires deadpan faces, which came naturally for the sleep-deprived new parents. And the rest, as they say, is history. It has became a tradition they do every week, using only stuff they find around the house or making props out of cardboard boxes. They now have nearly 70 scenes done, and they’re not slowing down. (flickr.net)
