The mom shared a hilarious way to avoid excessive screen time for her toddler and people are here for it. The mom wrote in the text overlay, “He wanted to watch dancing fruit but I’m not here raising an iPad kid.” Jackie revealed that her son could keep himself entertained by watching "Dancing Fruit," except it was going to be live and not on screen. Going all out on the beat, the mom is seen pulling off a lifesize banana costume to ace the “Dancing Fruit,” character energy. While her son is staring his eyes out at her, the mom is giving him just what he wants: A dancing fruit.

With over 4 million views people were not only roaring in laughter, but they were also finding ways to thank and applaud the mom for her optimistic energy and outlook to solving the screen-time problem. Though not practical for many, over 5k people commented out of which a majority hyped the mom to carry on going all out for the best interest of her toddler. @saavedra.nayeli remarked, “The baby is entertained, I have to try this.” @kisses4kuss joked and said, “I just know he’s gonna be 15 and talking to his friends and he’s gonna be so confused this isn’t the real dancing fruit.”

Many people exclaimed that they’d love to try this rendition of “Dancing Fruit,” while others agreed to even join the mom so she’d have a display of different fruits. @rabiddogboy said, “Bonus because you’re happy to spend time with him. 10/10 baby development.” @jenc.01 requested, “I need you to start a class on this now so I can do this for my kid. My kid prefers peas.” @thecatbutler99 pointed out, “A workout for you and entertainment for the little one, you go Mom!” Several parents shared other suggestions, many of which included getting the family together to put up a hysterical fruit display.
