The Heart Squishiest Moment From Last Night's Sleep-Deprived 'Parenthood'
I don’t have a heart-warming gif of the most endearing moment from last night’s episode, so we’ll have to make do with this context-providing one from a few weeks ago:
For weeks now the show has been playing up the hairier side of having a newborn and though we all knew Crosby’s frank frustrations were just a prelude to a break-through, heart-warming moment, it was still adorable as hell to see him talk his daughter into bottle-feeding while his wife, Jasmine, secretly listened in. I’ll just leave the little speech here:
“Honey, listen, I know your mom has boobs and that’s very very awesome. But I’m here for you too, alright? It’s important to me that you know that. I’m always going to be here for you. Okay? You understand that? You and me. Will you take this bottle? Please please please. Yeah! That’s a good girl. Oh good job, honey. Oh good job. You and me buddy. I’m always going to be here, okay?”
Most of us have been there, even if we’re not parents. That late night bonding moment with a little thing you’re trying to get to sleep or trying to feed. And, oh, yes, you’d say anything to get them to cooperate because you’re just so damn tired. But, also, so incredibly tender-hearted about this tiny thing in your care. Think about how far the character of Crosby has come. It’s one thing to bond with a little bro like Jabar, it’s quite another to bond with an infant who doesn’t have any personality yet. The scene was made all the more heart-warming when you consider the actor, Dax Shepard, just had a baby girl with his partner Kristen Bell. Adorable.
