Parenting Priorities

The cell phone or the baby?

How sad is it that we have really come to a point in society where that headline is a reasonable observation of public behavior?

What I am talking about here is something I once witnessed at a public event. It was an outdoor event in a carnival like atmosphere. A woman was letting her baby crawl around outside in the dirt! I was shocked. I said to my friend, “How can she let the baby do that?”

My friend looked over and noticed something I had missed. She responded sarcastically, “Well, obviously, she can’t hold the baby at the same time she has to balance her cell phone and her drink.” Sure enough, my friend wasn’t kidding. The woman had actually put her baby down to crawl in the dirt so she could have her drink and hold her phone!

Is it scary or just sad?
