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.

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!

I think it’s safe to say that during this strange time of quarantine, that we can definitely count parents among the heroes.

Stay at home orders and efforts to keep children at home, have caused parents to have to reevaluate their daily schedules. Now, so many parents are working double time to give their students the attention and education that they truly need.

A Pennsylvania mom recently highlighted the chaos of this new reality after showing what happened when she let her children play with toys after they’d finished their school work.

In a post shared on her Facebook Lisa Hoelzle shared a nightmarish experience of having to detangle her daughter Abigail’s hair after her son Noah dumped her into a hairy situation.

I post the good …. well here is some of the bad ☹️☹️☹️ Friday at 4pm until Saturday at 10pm was my worst Mom…

Hoelzle’s children are both 6 years old and like most kids in the United States right now, staying at home and doing virtual school. After finishing their school day, Noah and Abigail headed down to their basement to play with Bunchems, a toy that includes tiny Velcro-like balls that stick together.

It didn’t take long for sweet Noah, who Hoelzle describes in her post as a “jokester,” to dump a full container of the Bunchems on his sister’s head. Little did he know he’d just launched his sister into a mother’s “worst Mom nightmare.”

“I think I had an out-of-body experience,” Hoelzle wrote of the moment she saw her daughter’s hair. “She had about 150 of these things layered and matted in her hair. They made it worse trying to remove them themselves because they connect together kinda like Velcro.”

Speaking about her initial plan of action Hoelzle, said that it took around three hours to remove fifteen of the Bunchems. When her husband, Dan, arrived home the two Google their next approach and only then realized “the severity of what we were up against. It suggested using conditioner and vegetable oil to loosen it but that made it worse and so messy. He got out about 10 more Before you knew, it was 1 am and Abigail could not keep her eyes open I slept with her head on me so they wouldn’t get more tangled. Not that I really could sleep.”

When it came to cutting her losses and, cutting her daughter’s hair Hoelzle said she just couldn’t do it. “If we cut them out because of how deep they were she would have winded up with a short pixie cut,” she explained. “It crushed my heart and I just couldn’t in my heart give up without trying my best to get them out. I am that Mom that has a bow to match each outfit! Haha”

The next day, Lisa went back to work, this time armed with mineral oil and a detangling comb.

“There was also a lot of tears (mine)” Hoelzle joked. “Abigail consoled me and Noah because he felt awful what he did. Abigail was surprisingly amazing about it !! She is usually the child that acts like you are killing her when I brush her hair! When she started to wine about it my Mom brought in a Lollipop and stuck it in her mouth! Lol. Hey, you got to do what you got to do! It was such a long day. I never watched so much kids U tube to entertain her but after 20 hours total after pulling and working them out of her head and lots of hair loss I got them all out. Followed by an hour or more in the bath tub with conditioner and combing out the knots.”

“I feel like we had a miracle with all of our prayers,” Hoelzl added. “We saved her hair and although it is thinner it wasn’t as damaged and ruined as I thought so Thank you God!!!” she wrote.

While Hoelzle says her fingers are “literally swollen” from the experience she is thankful to be done with the “awful situation.”

She is now set on getting the word out about Bunchems and the severe consequences the toys can have.

“This will be something we will never forget very traumatic experience in the Hoelzle household this weekend,” she said before asking her friends to spread the word. “Trash you Bunchems if you have them or if you love them where a shower caps when playing with a sibling! Lol. This will be something we will never forget very traumatic experience in the Hoelzle household this weekend. I kept trying to think we have our health it [could] be worse but boy oh boy what a sickening feeling!”

Bunchems are still available to purchase but they were discontinued last year, likely for this reason.

According to New York Post, spokesperson for Spin Master, the company behind Bunchems said that they “quickly developed instructional videos for our YouTube channel and websites as a way to proactively educate people on how to play with the product and how to remove Bunchems from hair if they do get tangled.”

This Insane Video of an Anti-Mask ‘Karen’ Screaming and Resisting Arrest in a Florida Bagel Shop is Going Viral

This Insane Video of an Anti-Mask ‘Karen’ Screaming and Resisting Arrest in a Florida Bagel Shop is Going Viral

Just when you think yo’ve seen all the Karen videos out there, one comes out of left field and blows them all out of the water.

The video we’re talking about here is the video of Cindy Falco-DiCorrado, a 62-year-old “anti-mask activist” who exemplifies the very definition of white privilege.

Falco-DiCorrado was arrested last Thursday at an Einstein Bagels location in Boca Raton, Florida. Luckily for the internet, Falco-DiCorrado had a camerawoman in tow to record the entire debacle leading up to the arrest.

The video starts in the middle of things, with an officer taking an unmasked Falco-DiCorrado by the arm, asking her to please step outside. It is immediately evident that the woman (who, by the way, is dressed in head-to-toe leopard print) will not be compliant.

Falco-DiCorrado begins raising her voice and screaming at the officer, shouting things like “Get your hands off of me! You are kidnapping me!” and “You are violating the Constitution! That’s discrimination!”

At one point, the unseen camerawoman who is recording the meltdown pans around the bagel shop to get a look at all of the spectators.

It appears that every customer in the shop, as well as the workers behind the counter, have taken their phones out to record the bizarre incident.

The Florida woman continues to struggle with the cop and scream things like “Get your hands off of me! I’ve done nothing wrong, I am not a criminal,” while accusing the police officer (who is Black) of “stealing her purse”.

The struggle continues until a second cop arrives and immediately decides to not handle the unhinged woman with kid gloves. The second cop immediately grabs her by the arm and, with the help of the other cop, proceeds to drag her out of the shop.

But the video doesn’t end there. As Falco-DiCorrado is dragged out of the shop, she continues to scream.

The officers proceed to arrest her while she struggles against them and screams: “Stop it! You cannot arrest me! I’ve done nothing illegal!”

The entire time she is being arrested she is visibly and enthusiastically resisting arrest.

Watching the video, one can’t help but wonder how the officers would have treated her if her skin was a different color.

The video was posted to the popular Instagram page @CrazyKarens where it quickly went viral.

Commentators were stunned by the entire interaction, writing things like: “They let her get away with way too much! They would’ve thrown a person of color right on the ground the minute he/she didn’t stand up.”

Another person said: “With all that resistance she didn’t get pepper spray, no taser, no knee to the neck, no punches and they even called her ‘ma’am'”.

According to officials, Falco-DiCorrado is facing charges of trespassing and resisting arrest without violence. All because she didn’t want to wear a mask.
