There’s no denying grandmas are the best babysitters out there. They’ve got experience. They’ve got love and tender care. They’ve got the baking skills and cheery attitude. But this grandma has all that and something else: a serious height challenge. Nikki Sharp Bishop posted the video of Grandma Valerie babysitting with the disclaimer, “Mom is going to kill me, but I had to post.” What she didn’t know was that grandma’s babysitting would get over 50 million views – and even more laughs to go along with it!
With a baby monitor set up in the nursery, mom Nikki can keep an eye on her one year old, Lola, at all times. She didn’t expect that she would need to check on little Lola during grandma’s babysitting, but when she happened upon the footage, she couldn’t help but share the hilarious moment. The camera watches as Grandma Valerie rocks Lola to sleep in her arms, and once she’s sure the little one is fast asleep, she tries to transition her into the crib! But, without the arm length to make that happen, Grandma Valerie tips over and falls directly into the crib!
After making sure little Lola was perfectly fine, friends and family alike shared the video with smiles. Thankfully no one was hurt and Grandma Valerie thought it was just as funny as the 59 million people who watched it too! Nikki took to Facebook to say, “We are so happy that everyone is laughing over this video. The world needed a good laugh.” And after you see the video, you won’t be able to stop laughing, either! Take a peek at the hilarious footage for yourself by pressing “play” on the video below. Poor Grandma Valerie just wanted to make sure Lola got a good nap – she had no idea that she would soon be going viral online!
