We’ve all been there. You have somewhere that you positively have to be. And, of course, the sitter is nowhere to be found. That’s exactly what happened to single mom Ashton Robinson. The Texas A&M University student was left sitter-less, but still had to get to class. What happened? Check out how the mom was able to go to class, and take care of her toddler!
In a post on the Love What Matters Facebook page Robinson wrote, “So today I emailed my Professor before class saying that something came up and I didn’t have a sitter for Emmet and he called me back and said to please bring him!”
Whoa. Many of us have been in similar situations. Whether it’s class or work, we have to email, call or send a text saying, “Sorry. No sitter. Can’t make it.” The typical response is a flat, “OK.” Sometimes you might get a professor or a boss who feels some sympathy and adds in an, “I’m sorry. That’s too bad.” But, a professor who tells you to bring the kiddo to class? That’s almost unheard of. Almost.
Robinson also posted a video clip of her professor, Dr. Henry Musoma, teaching class while holding the little boy. Amazing!
