BBC Dad vs. BBC Mom

If you were on the internet last week, you had the pleasure of watching this (probably multiple times):

The video is pure comedic joy. From the high-stepping daughter entering the room and the baby who rolls in after her to the mom’s Risky Business slide into the room and desperate dive at the end, it’s an absolute delight. I’m so happy this exists.

I’ve watched the video countless times, as well as follow-up interviews and reports. I certainly empathize with the reporter, as I know what it’s like to try to give a professional opinion while tiny creatures make their presence known.

But there’s one thing that’s bothered me from the first time I watched the video. It’s a tiny bother, a little thing. I don’t think it’s worth bashing Kelly over, nor do I claim I’d do any better.

Rather, I’d like to celebrate a video that reminds me what it looks like to embrace the unexpected bundles of joy in our lives instead of pushing them away. The following video is almost pure satire, but it’s the tender moment at the very beginning that touched me.

How do you think you would have reacted in this awkward situation?
