HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A grandma is glad to see her unexpected acrobatic feat is bringing laughs to millions of people.
Grandma Valerie Sharp told the Today Show that she often uses a step stool to put her grand kids, Reed, 2, and Lola, 11 months, to bed.
But last Friday, as Sharp was laying little Lola down for her nap, she got a little top heavy. A video shared by her kids shows Sharp leaning forward to lay Lola down, then suddenly toppling head-first into the crib.
Thankfully she didn’t land on Lola.
“I was so thankful that, the way that I had her in my arms, my body didn’t touch her or hit her in any way as I went down. The worst that happened was that I jolted the mattress, and with that, she woke up,” said Sharp.
Her daughter, Nikki Bishop, shared the video on Facebook, where it quickly got more than 20 million views.
Sharp is glad she was able to make so many people smile.
“I did feel bad it happened, and I am glad we are both okay. But I think people need a good laugh right now,” said Sharp.
