I was watching mindless TV, and saw a comercial for a show called The Secret Life of Kids.
The premise of the show is a group of 5 year olds are put together in a fun place with hidden cameras, and ¨child experts¨ watch and analyze their behavior.
On the commercial they showed a little boy with glasses, crying in the corner and saying, ¨I just want to play with them, but they won´t let me.¨
Seeing this, I couldn´t even help it, I just started crying.
I explained the scene to my husband and sobbed, ¨I...don´t..want... that... to be our baby!¨
Husband reassured me that it wouldn´t be because we are raising him to be kind, and caring, and helpful, and repectful, and accepting, and other kids will love to be his friend.
I think I just hit the peak of my mom anxiety.
