Woman Shares the Hilarious Fiasco That Ensued After Asking Her Dad to Babysit Her Son

Having your parents babysit your kid might leave you wondering how you ever thought it was a good idea to leave your child with the folks that raised you.

Some people say that living close to grandparents is considered one of the best parenting hacks and it might be true in most cases. In families where both parents have to go out for work, a babysitting offer from the grandparents can help make life so much easier. However, in some cases, such offers also come at a cost and might leave you wondering how you ever thought it was a good idea to leave your kid with the folks that raised you. This is demonstrated in this story of a grandpa fumbling with his babysitter duties that got the internet rolling around in laughter.

TikTok user Molly Madfis—who goes by @almostmakesperfect on the platform—went viral after posting a compilation of the text messages she received from her father while he babysat his grandson when she and her husband were out trying to enjoy their "babymoon." The hilarious footage featured the relentless queries the senior bombarded her with, which might leave one wondering how he even managed to keep himself alive all these years.

The text overlay on the video clip reads: "How to have a relaxing babymoon—don't ask your dad to babysit." The video features a string of texts exchanged between the babysitting grandpa and Madfis. The elderly man tries to figure out how to use the toaster, how to find the food in the fridge, and how leftover pizza should be properly stored.

Amidst the chaos, he also ends up being 30 minutes late in taking his grandson to school, and that too, without the kid's backpack. By this point, it becomes quite evident that although the senior's heart is in the right place, he is far from equipped for the job of babysitting a young child.

He also seems to have a great sense of humor considering how when Madfis asked her dad to send some pictures of her son, he replied: "Why? You know what he looks like." Grandpa also let loose a little on a job, as evidenced by the picture Madfis received when she asked someone to take a photograph of whatever her father was doing at the time and received a snap of the elderly babysitter taking a swig from a beer bottle while her son seemingly played on a tablet nearby.

People on the internet found this fumbling but laid-back grandpa quite funny and relatable. One TikTok user wrote: "I asked my father-in-law for a pic of my baby so he sent me a pic that I sent him of her last week." 

"This is sweet. Don't be stressed, your kid will remember amazing times with grandpa," another wrote. "It's the no backpack for me because why is that just so spot on for grandparents? Lol," commented a third. "This is literally my dad!! I always say I have NO idea how I'm alive," shared another TikTok user.
