Babies.

Has anyone seen the Babies Documentary?

I found it absolutely fascinating, but it left me ...

A. Overwhelmingly thankful for diapers.

B. Wanting to put on a bra. Or seven.

C. Feeling the need to buy a mosquito net.

D. Teaching Levi how to balance things on his head the next day.

E. Thinking of getting Levi a pet rooster to parade around his bed.

F. Feeling very, very ignorant about life outside of the United States.

If you haven't watched this, you've just gotta.

  1. Watched it. Loved it. It definitely made me realize that I can relax a bit more as a mom. I mean, if that African baby can drink out of a crocodile-infested muddy river, then surely my kid is going to be ok if he comes out of the bathroom with the toilet brush in his mouth, right? :)

  9. Well, I did enjoy it, but to be honest I just couldn't take all the boobies after a little while! Lol, I don't mean that in a vulgar way, like it made me uncomfortable. Not mentally at least. Like you said, it just made me really thankful for bras! ;)

  11. I love Babies. I could watch it over and over. Made me feel a bit sorry for the western babies though. The Namibian and Mongolian babies seemed to have so much more fun.

  12. I did and I liked it. I am with you on that bra and diapers thing though! It amazed me how different cultures are though. I felt bad for the little guy left alone in the room most of the day!

  14. I found it so interesting that the Tokyo and SF babies were so uptight much of the time haha. And that tantrum from the Tokyo baby- so familiar in our home! :)

    Definitely makes you want to relax as a parent and let them explore more freely on their own.
