A Teen Just Won The Internet By Inventing Sandwich Babysitting Pants

"Creativity at its finest."

Last week, Claudia had to run a few errands, and she asked her 15-year-old niece J'Ann to watch Ava for an hour or so.

J'Ann "lives in the same subdivision, and is a straight A student at Lake Gibson High School. She wants to be a heart surgeon when she grows up," Claudia told BuzzFeed.


J'Ann was hungry and wanted to make a sandwich, but she didn't want to let Ava out of her sight. But because J'Ann was babysitting at her own house — rather than at Claudia's house which was baby-proofed and fitted with a highchair — she had to think fast.

"So I had to run out the house for a quick min, so I asked my niece to babysit Baby Ava," Sorhaindo wrote in a Facebook post accompanying the photos. "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. Lord send help this was her solution...creativity at its finest."

While she laughed at the photos, Claudia says she also appreciated her niece's desire to keep close watch on Ava. "I'm a very vigilant and overprotective parent," she told BuzzFeed."

Claudia's vigilance is in part because her first daughter Jenelle passed away when she was only three months old after a hospital gave her the wrong medication.
