The Slice

When babies look worried

I have no wish to impugn the parenting abilities of Spokane area residents with young children.

But I always look at babies and early-toddlers being pushed in strollers. And I have to say, a lot of those kids appear to be grimacing. It's as if they are bracing for impact. It's as if mom or dad called out, "Grab ahold of something!"

So it's fair to ask. Are parents pushing strollers running into curbs and fire hydrants on a regular basis these days?

Anything is possible in a world of smart phones and not-so-smart users.

But maybe I am misinterpreting the kids' expressions. Maybe they just dropped a crab cake or were reacting to a nip in the air.

In any event, I'm sharing this because parents pushing strollers probably cannot see the looks on their kids' faces. And it seems worth noting that these youths appear to be concerned.
