babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.
parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”
Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.
What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.
Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.

my friends sister was telling me about how in highschool a guy tried to take a picture up her skirt as she was walking up stairs and she saw, grabbed his phone, broke it in half, and handed it back to him and said “you can tell your mom why your phones broken”
for a second I forgot about flip phones and I was like how in the holy hell did she rip a phone in half
She’s probably learned that elephants who destroy fences get shot. Politeness doesnt have much to do with it. Where’s her herd? Is she traveling alone?
*laughs while actually getting feelings hurt*
I’ve recently decided to freeze myself to -273℃. My friends think I’ll die, but I’ll be 0K.
EVERYONE STOP AND READ THIS holy shit this is accurate. for me depression, adhd and anxiety apply.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more accurate description of myself. Fuck.
this, is actually nice to know
holy hell i have them all
awwww, see, now stop feeling so bad for yourselves and go do cool shit!
the last sentence :(
Everything is perfect until the last sentence…
I think i’ve got a million comments about the last sentence, but that’s the entire point to the poem. You fall in love with the feeling of being wanted, you fall in love with the places you visit, the routine, and mostly you fall in love with being comfortable. You are there because you want to be able to love that person, but you can’t force yourself, and you won’t.
the last sentence is what makes this so perfect. it’s honest and a twist that you aren’t expecting and I love that in writing.
this is actually one of the most beautiful things i have ever read..
How I always feel about people.
This is absolutely breathtaking and I cannot find the words to describe my adoration towards this beautiful piece of writing
I was smiling so much and then I read the last sentence and immediately understood and I just felt my heart drop to the floor. Excuse me while I sob in the bathroom for an hour…
have u ever accidentally befriended someone who is very very irritating
