Last January 14, 2017 Caryn and Tyrone Morris invited their friends for a dinner in their house. However, as the evening progressed, their 15-month-old son Brody was finally getting drowsy. Caryn immediately brought the toddler to his room, but it seems like baby Brody is having a hard time sleeping because of the noise downstairs.
On an interview with “Times Live”, a news agency in South Africa, Caryn explained the situation. She was quoted as to saying
“He was moaning and wanted to get out the cot. Every time I walked out the room, he would stand up and moan.”
In hopes of getting back to the party as soon as possible, Caryn made a plan.
“I decided to sit on the floor next to the cot so he could see me… he then just lay there with his eyes a little bit open. I lay back… he didn’t flinch or move or try and get out the cot,” she explained.
However, her husband Tyrone became worried with what’s taking her so long inside the room. Due to his curiosity, Tyrone then checked the baby monitor. He noticed that his wife Caryn was laying on the floor. Curious, he further checked for his wife’s next move.
Trying not to make a noise, Caryn slowly drifted under the crib until she finally managed to go out of the door. Little did she knew that everything that she has done inside the room were being documented by the camera, and her husband and some of their guests have been laughing boisterously while watching her.
“Once I made my exit, that was it. The night was mine!” she recounted.
Tyrone found the scene hilarious so he posted it on Facebook. He then wrote the caption,
“The best thing about having cameras in your house is watching your wife trying to exit the room after putting your son down!! Sometimes you have to use your initiative for your exit!! PS The SA Army are calling for you to do training on the reverse leopard crawl!!”
Many netizens also found it hilarious and have been sharing it on different social media platforms. With more than 20 million views, the video of Caryn went viral. She is now dubbed by netizens as “Spider Mom”.
