You never quite know what you are going to get with kids. They can be super unpredictable. This TikTok video is an example of that.

In this video, we have a mom at her alumni track meet with her three-year-old daughter. You can hear a man say, “Wait for Mama. Wait for her to go, here she comes, get ready run…” encouraging the little girl.

However, as the mom approaches and tries to hand the baton to her, the three-year-old runs away and starts to scream. She wasn’t quite sure what this relay thing was all about. 

Mom eventually hands her the baton, and they run down the track together. 

The video's captain says, “Okay, so the baton handoff needs some work,” and while this is true, it made for a cute video.

Many in the comments had some great things to say about it. One commenter writes, “I love that she didn't care someone was running passed her; she's just happy she's doing it with her daughter.” Another says, “And I’m sure there was a talk in the car before the race about grabbing the baton from mom.” 

Running a relay with your young child seems like a great way to get them used to how a relay race works, and that exercise can be a lot of fun. Hopefully, this little girl enjoyed herself in the end and wants to run more races with her mom in the future. She is pretty young, so there is definitely hope that she can master the art of grabbing a baton during a race. 

“Why seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” - Hebrews 12:1
