Every parent understands the struggle of trying to get their kids to go to sleep. When bedtime seems like a distant dream, sometimes a little creativity is in order. And a cruise, or several, around the block, can be just what’s needed for your little one to catch some ZZZs.
While this parenting hack is nothing new, Missen’s neighbors found the vehicle’s presence unsettling.
Another neighbor responded, suggesting to “take your phone and show the people in the car driving past that you are recording them.”
Missen took the group chat to TikTok to “Tell viewers she’s a mom without actually telling viewers she’s a mom.” Captioned, “When you’re trying to get your baby to sleep, and your local community group is worried you’re scoping the place out,” the hilarious video, which has over 660 thousand views, shows screen grabs from the chat.
Viewers took to the comments to share their amusement as well as similar stories.
“Someone in my neighborhood genuinely said they heard gunshots on Sunday, the 4th of July,” posted one user.
Parents also understandably related to Missen’s situation, with one commenting, “I’m sorry this made me giggle lol. But yes, I feel you. I do the same thing with my daughter. I drive on the motorway.”
