COVID-19 has completely changed practically everyone’s way of living. But post-pandemic life has become especially challenging for parents, who are now forced to be stuck inside with their children for hours on end.
Between assisting your kids with distance learning and struggling to find your own “me time”, many parents feel as if their world has been turned upside down.
Recently, news watchers in Southern California caught a glimpse into the new era of COVID parenting when meteorologist Lisa Lopez’s toddler interrupted her live broadcast.
Los Angeles-based KABC meteorologist Leslie Lopez was reporting the weather as usual when she was visited by an unexpected guest. As she spoke about an incoming storm, her 9-month-old son, Nolan, entered the frame.
Slightly startled, Lopez giggled for a moment and said, “Looks like there’s a baby down below,” before bending over and picking him up. Then, like the rockstar that she is, she continued her report.
“He walks now, guys, so I’ve lost all control,” she quipped before ending the segment.
The public’s reaction to the adorable interruption was incredibly positive.
Wow! What an amazing response about this all-too-real moment that so many of us face right now, trying to work from home while also being there for our families. Thank you @abc7leslielopez for making us all smile ❤️ You are awesome!https://t.co/gvXLLf2ryr— Brandi Hitt (@ABC7Brandi) January 29, 2021
No one was annoyed that their weather report was interrupted. On the contrary, so many people felt like the clip made them feel less alone.
“Agree that this is always fun to see—we are all dealing with this and it makes one feel good—it’s real,” said one woman on Twitter. “It’s awesome. Never feel bad because we all inside are feeling joy as we can relate.”
Others commented on how the video perfectly illustrated how modern women have become adept at multitasking. “It was not just a moment of heartwarming love, but a moment of the strength of women!” said another Twitter user. “It just shows how easily women can be full of love and do their job at the same time!”
Later, KABC did a special report on the happy mistake to see what Lopez herself thought of the surprising public reaction.
“We received so many comments from viewers thanking her for showing what the reality is right now for so many people working with kids at home,” said fellow reporter Jovana Lara. “It is not easy.”
As for Lopez, she revealed that viewers are hungry for a different kind of weather report: “I’ve been getting comments, ‘More baby in weather, please.'” Yes, please!
