Looking after toddlers can be hard work as they are just full of energy which could lead to some messy situations.
24-year-old Moses from London loves his two-year-old nephew Isaac who he describes as being a live wire.
However, one afternoon while looking after Isaac, Moses learnt exactly why people moan about babysitting.
Taking only a few minutes to go to the bathroom, Moses thought Isaac would be alright especially since the child’s mother was also in the house.
This turned out not to be the case though as Moses’ sister, Isaac’s mother, was catching up with all the latest Love Island drama which we can’t blame her for as the show has recently been explosive!
If you need to catch up yourself, check out the video below:
Taking advantage of the fact he had been left to his own devices, Isaac decided to grab a spoon and play with some flour – as you do when you don’t have a care in the world or any repsonsibility.
He ended up covering both himself and the living room in the white powder which Moses found both hilarious and irritating, likely in equal measure.
Speaking exclusively to UNILAD, Moses said the incident helped him come up with a new nickname for Isaac:
I left Isaac with my sister (his mum) to go toilet. She got distracted, silly girl was focusing on Love Island, and by the time I come back my house was looking like it took part in Narcos or something.
I didn’t know whether to shout or get mad so I started calling Isaac ‘Maradona’.
Moses added when his sister saw what had happened, she couldn’t believe the mess Isaac had got himself into.
You can watch the video Moses took of Isaac redecorating the house with the flour here:
In the footage you can hear Moses trying to hold back the laughter as he tells Isaac ‘I’m talking to you’ and attempting to give him a telling off.
Deciding to share the moment with his friends and family, Moses posted the video on Twitter writing ‘I’m ready to bin my nephew, what kind of madness’.
It has since gone viral receiving over 8,000 views.
I don’t think Moses will be letting Isaac near any flour again, especially since it took him hours to clean it up!
It could be worse Moses – at least Isaac didn’t ring up the emergency services like two-year-old Aaliyah did.
Ringing 911 asking for help with a fashion crisis back in March 2016, little Aaliyah was unable to fully explain she wasn’t in any immediate danger, she just couldn’t pull her trousers up.
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office sent out Deputy Martha Lohnes in response to the call who was relieved to Aaliyah was alright and helped the toddler get her trousers on.
On the police station’s Facebook page, Deputy Lohnes wrote:
This little two-year-old girl dialled 911 without her parents knowing. I show up and she comes to the door with her pants half on saying she can’t get them on.
So I sit down on the stairs and help her put pants on. And then she proceeds to ask me to pick her up and hug her… and that would be the best part of my shift today.
All’s well that ends well then.
