Have you all seen this video going around? Little does that cutie know the lion behind him is trying to bite his head off–and mom is just filming away!
Watch the video here.
Now I know the chances of that lion getting through the glass are slim to none, but what if? That’s all I could think when I saw this video for the first time. Sure, it’s cute because the baby has no idea what’s going on and the lion probably won’t get through the glass. But what if?
It’s no secret that I’m a totally paranoid parent, so videos and photos like this always make my heart race. I get that they are humorous because no one was harmed, but is having your baby that close to danger really funny? I know the glass is strong and reinforced and designed to keep those animals in, but Heaven forbid it’s faulty. Heaven forbid that lion give it one good slap and there’s no more glass. Not so funny, right? Was it funny when Michael Jackson dangled his baby over a balcony? Or when Britney Spears drove with her baby on her lap? Sure, the chances of something awful happening aren’t great, but it still wasn’t a great decision.
Now I don’t mean to be a Debbie downer. I know the baby is fine. But while part of me can appreciate the humor, the other part of me is like that mom is bananas. What about you? If that was your baby, would you have been recording or snatching your baby as fast as you could? Share in the comments.
