Teen Asks Mum For Help With Interactive Baby Assignment

Teen Asks Mum For Help With Interactive Baby at 3 a.m., Mom’s Response Is Basically “LOL, No”

Meet William. He’s Olivia’s interactive baby assignment for her Early Childhood Education Class. Now, meet Olivia with...

Lawren Cole Galloway got to experience the ultimate role reversal on the weekend of March 16 when her teenage daughter Olivia brought home an interactive baby named William as part of an assignment for her Early Childhood Education class. William may look cute, but as it turns out, the little guy was a bit of a nightmare and taught Olivia a lot about what it's like to care for a baby over the course of the weekend.

"Meet William . . . Now, meet Olivia with William." Lawren wrote on Facebook alongside a photo of the fake baby in a car seat and one of Olivia, looking like every sleep-deprived mom there ever was and will be. "She's had him since Friday night. She is absolutely exhausted and ready to quit the class and give William back (maybe even throw him back). It's definitely been a learning experience."

As with a human baby, William will have needed to be fed, changed, and burped, among other things. And for a teenager who just wants to sleep on her weekend off from school, William's needs created a few issues when it came to Olivia's REM cycle.

"My favorite moment so far is when she came into my room last night around 3 a.m.," Lawren wrote. "She was crying real tears while feeding him his bottle. She was begging me to help her because she just wanted to get some sleep. Yeah, no."

Oh, Olivia.
