I’ve been watching and rewatching this video for a day or so.
I really feel for that mother. I hope the parents aren’t embarrassed. They are viral now.
These kids have provided a nice little highlight to the week, which has been mostly boringly dull.
If I had been that BBC News anchor I would have changed directions, ignoring the teleprompter, and delving into who these adorable tots are.
“Looks like we have some visitors.”
“Now, what is it like working from home?”
“Who are these little crumb crunchers?”
“Hi, what’s your name?”
“How old are you?”
Then, after the mom rushes in and ushers the two party crashers out, I’d focus on the father and fatherhood.
“What’s it like being a father?”
“No worries, you two. Thanks for being with us. And thank your wife and the two little ones for joining us, too.”
God bless ’em!
