Our 16 month old son was taking his sweet time walking. We nicknamed him “Scooter” because he was fond of scooting across the floor and not interested in walking at all. So when daycare sent a video yesterday of him taking his first steps, it was momentous and caused tears of joy (and jealousy) in the Taylor household. It’s hard as a parent to feel like your kid is behind, and it didn’t help that his pediatrician was “concerned” that he wasn’t pulling himself up 6 months ago, or walking as of yesterday.
So f-you to all the haters, all those other much younger kids that have been walking for months, and especially his concerned pediatrician. You suck.
