this video has so many layers.
I think you need to watch it.
I watched it. Twice. Thanks, Andrew.
What makes this possible?
Also, I feel sad.
I watched once, Andrew, when you tweeted the link.
You made the right decision, son.
Wow. This wrecks me. I’m right in there as the kid on the couch.
It wrecked me so much I was unsure whether to post it.
I’m so confused. Angry babysitters?
I got nothin’. I’m wrecked.
It’s a doggy dog world.
Oh, sorry, Luke. I meant the plural you.
Please forgive me, god whose existence I do not acknowledge. I watched this again.
Sometimes life is too big. Too sad.
My heart. My heart hurts.
I agree, Andrew, good decision to post. I watched it a second time.
I cannot believe what I just watched, therefore feel compelled to watch again but cannot. Like Rick said, it’s a doggy dog world. You can’t “unsee” something like that. Damn.
I like the part where they throw the baby on the floor.
I’m secretly waiting till the office is clear so I can watch it a second time.
I like it. I giggled.
Don’t tell me how to spend my 2:35, Simone.
I don’t see the anger part. Teenage-ish older sisters goofing around, baby brother “dancing” in the background. They tried to include him, he took a tumble. A little kick/prod. If this is the worst treatment he gets from his older siblings he’s doing great.
And I came to this post today with my intentions before I saw Amanda’s response. My first thought was, well, just shut up Cece. People feel the way they feel and our responses all are valid. But I just had an entirely different take. That’s all.
The girls make me happy. It’s the obese, dead-eyed baby that breaks my heart.
Me too, Cindy. I like the jaunty dance moves, the contrived fun surely aimed at feeling better about having to be in such tired looking rooms. But so many needs all around us are never seen for what they are. We do the best we can, but sometimes we see what we should have paid attention to too late. In this case, the kid on the couch is the eternal background of lost causes for me…. I hope he has a good life and will later look back at this clip and laugh along with everybody else.
I know, Cindy. Maybe a medical issue we don’t know about. There was another video somewhere and one of the girls had him on her lap and he was singing. That was a happier one of the little boy.
Daryl, Cindy, you said what I think and feel better than I ever could have. It’s not the first time, and every time it makes me so grateful to know and love you both.
Oh, Kelsey. x
