Hilarious Slow-mo on Mum's Phone Shows What Happens When She Turns Her Back
Every baby has accidents - it's not just something that happens to little boys. But this video is something else.
We’ve all been there. You’ve spent a day wrangling your kids, you’re exhausted and you’re just trying to get the last of your errands done before you can collapse in a heap. You put your kid down for a moment and you hand over your phone because you know it’s gonna buy you a few precious seconds of uninterrupted freedom…
Maybe they’re watching something on YouTube… maybe they’re playing a game… or maybe they’re making an award-winning home movie, the likes of which will no doubt be shared over and over again and become the stuff of family legend.
“Sometimes I give my son my phone to watch his shows while I change his diaper/give diaper-free time,” Madia, a mum-of-two from South Carolina in the US, posted on her Facebook page. “I just found this slow-motion video on my phone!! I’m dyinnngggggg!!”
So are we. I think I speak for every single #boymum on the planet when I say: relatable A.F.
Hilarious Slow-mo on Mum’s Phone
In the video – now shared over 50k times – Madia’s 18-month-old son, Troy relaxes on the bed, his cute little toddler foot propped up, watching his mum walk away. Totally innocent. And then it happens: a steady stream erupts in front of the camera. It’s pee. He’s peeing – in slow motion – in perfect focus. Give this kid an Oscar because his cinematography is SOMETHING ELSE.
“The biggest puddle of pee I have ever seen”
Madia found the footage on her phone later and tells Kidspot, “I was on the floor laughing,” admitting at the time she had no idea he’d even captured it, it was just another busy day in her house, chasing after two little boys (she also has a five-month-old son, Luke).
“Our boys have very sensitive skin and easily get diaper-rash,” she says, “so we have to give them lots of diaper-free time.”
Despite being used to dealing with the odd accident, she says even she was surprised by the amount of wee. “When I came back he was laying on the biggest puddle of pee I had ever seen him make,” she laughs, and yep, we’re not surprised! It may be in slow-mo, but even still, it is EPIC.
Our favourite part? When it seems to stop just for a moment, when it seems like he’s finally run out of, erm, juice, and then there’s one final, triumphant burst, all while his blissfully unaware mum wanders around to the edge of the screen. And the sound effects?! The sound effects are amazing. ROTFLMAO.
Look, we know, every baby has accidents – it’s not just something that happens to little boys – but honestly, there is nothing that sums up having a tiny penis in your house better than this video. Once a boy discovers they have their very own pee hose, that’s it: all bets are off. It’s like they’re a dog and your house is one giant fire hydrant.
The internet agreed, with #boymums the world over loving the video. “Lmao! Perfectly sums up being a boy mom,” one laughed while another couldn’t believe how long the wee was. “Just when you thought he was done… nope! Here comes some more!!!”
Plenty wanted to applaud his camera work, and yep, same, tbh. “His camera steadiness and aim are fantastic”, said one, while another commented, “He’s going to be a genius producer one day,” to which his mum quipped, “and I will always remind him of his first-ever production.”
We’d personally just like to thank Madia for sharing this awesome video in the first place. It certainly brightened up our day and we’re not alone.
“I just want to thank you for posting this and changing the trajectory of my morning!!!” one woman said, adding, “I am going to have an awesome day!”
