Woman Falls in Fountain While Texting: Don't Be That Mom!

Woman Falls in Fountain While Texting

Woman Falls in Fountain While Texting

As a new mother, a few things come to mind when I watch the funny “woman falls in fountain while texting” video: 1. Is that going to be my tech-loving baby as soon as she learns to walk? And 2. What if that chick had been holding a baby? And 3. Wait, do I walk with Hazel while sending text messages?

I have to admit it: I am guilty of sending text messages while walking around with my 6 month old. But only once or twice, while strolling very slowly around my somewhat safe apartment. And I’m sure the texts were quite important. And urgent. Like, “We R out of wine – pik sum up on UR way home? <3″

But after watching the texting fountain lady video, I’m thinking maybe I’ll hold off on sending text messages while carrying my baby. While this is not quite as egregious as texting and driving, of course, I definitely don’t want Hazel thinking my iPhone is more important than she is. Not even if we’re out of Pinot noir!
