People said to never leave your phone or any gadget with your toddler. They even judge parents, especially mothers, for using either the television or their mobile devices as “nannies” for their children.

People do not understand that most mothers barely have time for themselves, especially those with more than one child. Feeding, bathing, breastfeeding, and putting them to sleep is a constant job for mothers with toddlers and babies.

Mothers only want a few minutes to take a shower, fold clothes, or wash the dishes. That’s why people should be more understanding and less judgmental of mothers.

The moments they are quiet and still

When kids are quiet and still, most mommies would take advantage of it to do their chores. But with their short attention span, that cellphone can come in handy.

That’s what Brianna Loos did when she noticed dear Emery was quiet. She immediately handed her little girl her phone to play a nursery game so she could take a quick shower.

The cellphone dilemma

Brianna ensured that Emery would sit nearby if she needed mommy’s help. But just a few minutes in the shower and the little one came in asking for some help.

She told her to come in (as she usually would) because she thought maybe there was an ad on Emery’s game that she couldn’t get rid of. The toddler handed her the phone to see what’s up, only to realize what really happened to her horror.

They saw it live

She was horrified to see that her toddler was broadcasting live on Instagram. She was mortified with what happened and panicked about what to do next. She ended the live feed and immediately contacted a friend who was watching that broadcast.

Apparently, Emery was playing with the app’s filters but couldn’t find it, so she went into the bathroom to ask mommy for help.

Brianna said she was lucky she doesn’t have a huge following, and only a few people watched that broadcast. But, yes, those watching saw her in the shower – LIVE!

Mothers could relate

“My friend said she heard me scream and saw my face. I honestly didn’t ask more questions because I don’t want to know,” she told TODAY Parents.

Brianna posted a video about this incident on her TikTok account, which has garnered more than 800,000 views. She admitted that the comments section was the fun part.

While one person commented that this should be a lesson not to give any gadget, especially their phone, to a toddler, she was more entertained by those mothers who shared the same experience.

Surviving motherhood

Brianna’s TikTok account is full of her videos about surviving motherhood. Topics vary from struggles of motherhood to mommy bloopers like this one with Emery. She addresses all those mostly in a humorous way.

She is only one of the many mothers who do this, especially in breaking the stigma and stereotype of motherhood. It is one great place to spread awareness since the app has a huge following.
