Toddler makes daring escape from her crib during nap time: ‘That look of pride’

This TikTok parent shared the moment her toddler made an amazing escape from her crib!

Mikaela (@momwantstacos) is a TikToker and mom of two recently shared a hilariously adorable video of her one-year-old toddler making an impressive escape from her crib during nap time. The video, which racked up 4.8 million views and counting, shows the miniature escape artist climbing up the sides of her crib to make her amazing escape!

The video begins with a shot of the one-year-old standing in her crib. The toddler leans against the crib’s bars as she lifts one leg and places it on the top bar of the crib. She hovers for a moment, then begins kicking her other leg up to meet the first. A caption reads, “When your baby discovers she can get out of nap time.”

The toddler grasps the top of the crib with both hands as she maneuvers her legs over the edge. For a moment, she struggles to free her legs from the crib, and begins to kick in frustration. Then, she manages to get free.

The toddler lies across the top of the crib, then grasps the sides and lets herself drop gracefully to the floor. Then, she steadies herself on a chair before toddling over to her mom, who has been filming the great escape. 

The video ends as the toddler approaches her mom, wearing a proud grin on her face. 

Viewers were impressed by the adorable toddler’s crib escape!

“Get her into gymnastics,” one viewer suggested. 

To which Mikaela replied, “I was thinking the same thing!”

“That look of pride… What a cutie!” wrote another TikToker. 

“My baby girl does this. I ended up taking one side off for her safety,” commented one parent. 

The talented toddler certainly has a bright future ahead of her, though whether she will become a gymnast or an escape artist has yet to be determined!
