I have always said children are like drunk fraternity boys.
If you have kids of your own or have spent any significant amount of time around them, you know they are careless, to say the least. They walk by tables and other furniture like Godzilla, waving their arms and knocking down anything within a three-foot radius. They spill their food and drink all over the place, and they wear more than they eat. They drop just about anything they attempt to carry, and they fall down on top of it more times than not.
And then there’s the behavior. They suddenly and without warning have shifts in attitude that are more surprising than an unexpected weather change and more dangerous than the resulting tornado. They go from content to angry and from happy to devastated in a split second, and they torment whoever happens to be within earshot with their tantrums and shrieking and demands of “More!” or “Less!” or “Gimme that now!”
Apparently I am not alone in this assessment, for BuzzFeed UK came out with a video likening babies to tiny, drunk adults. And every parent, caregiver, and older sibling out there can certainly relate.
Enjoy, and then go give your own miniature drunk adult a kiss on the cheek. Because despite their unpredictable demeanor, we love them anyway.
