Even though babies are adept at looking like they want to kill you, it’s fairly safe to assume that they don’t actually want to. They have a fairly limited set of desires and destroying other people isn’t generally considered by professionals to be among them.
Of course this doesn’t mean that they’re full of kindness and beneficence, either. They don’t want to hurt anybody, but they’re not particularly empathetic either.
Not everyone seems to be aware of this blance, however, as is evidenced by a note that was recently sent home from day care along with 9-month-old Baby Samantha. It’s nothing short of absurd…
Samantha has been playing roughly and aggressively with the other babies; they will be crying and upset but she is smiling and enjoying herself — even our using firm voices to tell her it’s not OK to hurt her friends and remove her from area, she is smiling and going right back. Can you help us out by maybe discouraging her to not play roughly with her friends and her dog.
What?! A baby who doesn’t notice that other babies are crying and who just wants to laugh and play?
When comedians Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee became moms, they didn’t quit comedy, but their material definitely changed. The duo started a monthly show called The Pump and Dump where they commiserate with other moms about the daily ups and downs of parenting.
As part of their show, they ask mothers to write down the strangest things their kids have said or done. Here are just a few of the outrageous stories from moms in the trenches…
Before humans grow up and learn that not every thought should be said aloud, we are pretty darn funny…and little Greta is living proof. For the last year or so, her parents have been documenting and sharing her proto-comic skills.
This young traveler decided to come home after two years instead of staying on the road like he’d planned, and his mother had no idea. When she saw him walk in the door, her reaction was nothing short of…expressive.
Watch to the end for the funniest (NSFW) moment. Oh, and turn your speakers down a bit…
The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.
Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.
Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…
His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?
