I was watching an adorable video on YouTube the other day, at the recommendation of one of the morning talk shows, looking for a little smile on stressful day. In the video, a toddler rocks out to Bruno Mars, kicking into high gear perfectly along with the beat, and it is awesome. When it ended, I started reading the comments and my smile faded as I watched them turn from complimenting the impressive adorability and musicality of this child into a trail of critiques about how the baby is secured in her carseat.
Perfect parents typed helpful thoughts along the lines of “Cute, but I was so distracted by that harness,” “It’s all fun until you get into a car accident,” and “Can’t you see how you are endangering your child??!!” (my paraphrasing, not direct quotes, but close!)
