There's a one-minute clip of an adult male pretending to arrest a baby. A small fraction of Twitter users replied in-thread that police or Child Protective Services (CPS) should be involved. A larger portion seemed to view the role-play as a joke. As always, I have mixed thoughts about the situation. Mainly, was it wrong and if not, was it wrong to post on the internet?

A girl I knew in my late teens once told me that she didn’t want to have children. I couldn't wait to become a mother and already had a name picked out so what she told me was outside my orbit of things I knew but I respected that she had her own orbit of things she knew as well.

I always admired how sure of herself she was even back then and how her mind was completely made up and nothing was going to sway her.

We knew exactly what we wanted and thankfully things panned out just as hoped.

Thankfully, my baby didn’t die, and I was able to learn some valuable life lessons as a result.
