Being a new mom and leaving your baby with someone else can be a pretty stressful experience, even just for a few minutes. After all, you can’t trust your child with just anyone. Headlines describing incompetent, negligent, and even abusive babysitters dominate the news these days. One mom’s teenage niece, on the other hand, has proven that her first priority is keeping her eyes on the children in her care, no matter how strange (and hilarious) her methods for achieving that are.
When Claudia Sorhaindo asked her 15-year-old niece, J’ann, to watch her two-month-old earlier this year, the teen took her job very seriously. So much so, in fact, that when she wanted to make herself a sandwich, she came up with a pretty creative solution for holding baby Ava while keeping her hands free.
J’ann was so proud of herself that she had to send pictures to Sorhaindo, who was so amused she promptly posted them on Facebook.
“So I had to run out the house for a quick min, so I asked my niece to babysit Baby Ava. A few min later I received a text saying that J’Ann wanted to make a sandwich but didn’t want to let baby Ava out of her sight,” Sorhaindo wrote. “Lord send help this was her solution…like really…creativity at its finest.”
Ava looks pretty comfortable and happy if you ask me! I may have to try this out if I ever have kids of my own.
