Abbreviated relationships, hypersensitive emotional reactions and competitive "friendships" that often end in tears -- toddlers and contestants on "The Bachelor" seem to have a few qualities in common when it comes to love.
Haven't noticed the parallels? Ilana Wiles, a mom of two who blogs at Mommy Shorts has created a photo series that might convince you.
Wiles asked fans on the Mommy Shorts Facebook page to submit photos of kids and babies kissing for her annual Valentine's Day album. Per usual, she'd planned to add funny captions and post them to her blog. (She does this for most major holidays and events with hilarious results.) But the self-proclaimed "Bachelor" fan decided that this month's batch of cuteness was ripe for a reality TV parody. "It's possible that only me and Chris Harrison will find these funny," she writes on the blog. Nope, we're laughing with you Mommy Shorts.
