Curiosity killed the cat
Satisfaction brought it back.

What a curious world we live in.

Kickass Kid of the Day: Avery Canahuati has made astonishing progress on her bucket list: throw out a first pitch; get a driver’s license; get asked out for Valentine’s Day. She doesn’t have the leisure of time, however.
Avery, just five months old, was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a genetic terminal illness that means she is unlikely to make it past her second birthday. So Avery’s parents, Mike and Laura, are doing everything they can to make the most of the time Avery does have left, and they’re keeping track of their adventures on Avery’s Bucket List, written as if by Avery herself, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Number one on Avery’s list is to meet Ellen Degeneres:

“I think Ellen is the perfect person to help me spread my message about SMA because she’s compassionate, funny, and wants to meet inspirational people, which apparently some people think I am.”

Avery currently is welcoming ideas to add to her bucket list.

I’m not sure if this makes me a cold person but I don’t understand how this is a ‘kickass kid’ when she’s 5 months old and none of this is stuff she could have asked to do. Babies don’t really care about meeting celebrities or getting a driver’s license. She’d probably be just as happy spending as much time as she can in her parents’ arms. This isn’t an inspiration. It’s sad she can’t live a full life, but she shouldn’t have to be surrounded by strangers in her last months. Nor should there be something like “shake hands with super hot baseball players” on her bucket list. It looks more like the parents are getting their 15 minutes of fame and this little girl won’t be able to understand what’s going on.
EDIT: FOR FLIP’S SAKE THEY MADE HER GET A REAL TATTOO? This child deserves a whole new set of parents.
