I’ve always been a fan of the badass. So you can bet I was more than pleased to discover a video of this brand new little gaffer flipping her Daddio the bird.
I mean, she’s a mere 15 minutes old and already asserting herself and letting her thoughts be known. Sure, maybe (likely), it’s all coincidence. I’d like to think that this sort of thing (babies giving the middle finger), could be the best thing a babe could do, to let their unhappiness be known. With actual intent.
Think of it. Instead of crying they could give us the finger. Gas? The finger. No crying. Poopy diaper? The finger. No crying. Hungry? The finger. No crying. Issuing clear distaste for the ridiculous tutu they can’t even crawl in it it’s so big and gargantuan fluorescent flower bandanna with curly ribbin hitting the ceiling you just bedecked them in? The finger. (As obnoxious as that run-on sentence was, so is that sort of get-up. Sad but true fact to the guilty parties.)
Now, don’t get me wrong. It’s only cute and acceptable for a baby to do. Once they are able to start walking or talking, you’ve got to wean that sh*t out. (A swear was only appropriate). As with many other things we must wean our children from/off of; boobies or bottles, paci’s, diapers – the list goes on. We could add flipping the bird to that list. I for one would have taken the finger any old day over the colic. Just sayin’. (If only slightly in jest). Video after the jump.
