The freshest prince in the Smith family is no longer Will! We're pretty sure his son Jaden took the title today as he showcased his amazing Karate Kid choreography for Ellen. Then, he glided across the stage doing dance moves reminiscent of Michael Jackson and good enough to rival Usher. Considering that the 12-year-old was able to steal scenes from his A-list actor and father in The Pursuit of Happyness, we bet Jaden's career in Hollywood will be one to watch!
This is how he reaches things when there is no real stool around.

Would you let your youngster spend this much time focused on one activity?
Baby Aya's (meaning miracle) birth is nothing short of one. The two-pound infant was born at 25 weeks, just two days after her mother, a former British figure skater, was declared brain dead as a result of a brain hemorrhage. Though she had appeared to be in perfect health, the mom-to-be, Jayne Soliman, suffered the massive attack as a result of an undetected brain tumor. The baby was born via c-section. Jayne's husband, Mahmoud Soliman, was forced to deal with the tragic and bittersweet turn of events. He said:
“It was Jayne's one true wish to be a mum. She would have been a great mum,” Mahmoud Soliman said in a statement to the media. “In the space of 48 hours I have experienced joy at the birth of my child and endured torment over losing my wonderful wife.”
Damon Weaver has already interviewed Joe Biden and Caroline Kennedy, but the Florida fifth grader was denied press credentials to interview the president-elect. The aspiring journalist, who already has quite an accomplished resume, will board his first flight to Washington for the inauguration thanks to tickets from Congressman Alcee Hastings and donors who paid for his trip. The 10-year-old hopes to score an interview with Barack Obama and fulfill his dream.
Doctor Jaidan, medicine girl! Valerie Lujan was seven months pregnant and at home with her daughter, Jaidan, when she went into labor. The nine-year-old stayed calm and acted quickly to deliver her little brother. Following the directions of a 911 operator, the child tied off the umbilical cord and massaged the newborn until emergency medical workers arrived. Both the mother and newborn are fine.
Anthony Iglesia wants to be like Mike. The seven-year-old baller was in Santa Barbara attending Michael Jordan's basketball camp when the iconic athlete tapped him to play a game of two-on-two against another camper and San Antonio Spurs player, Tony Parker. The former duo beat the latter with young Anthony scoring the winning basket and just as many points as Jordan. The child's proud mama and pop rooted him on.
There are kids in college and child doctors, but it's your every day kid tricks that truly steal the show. My son has the remarkable ability to dash down the hall in my three-inch wedge heels before I have a chance to worry about him rolling his ankles. He can also belt out a scream (the kind that can disable a person's nervous system) for far longer than the most talented opera singer can hold a note.
My daughter dabbles in beat boxing and does a mean self invented bootie dance. Not to mention that she bargains for things by singing an inventive and equally adorable rendition of the Ghostbusters theme song. Some talents are admirable, others we'd just as soon forget, but they are all kidmazing. What is your lil one's specialty?
