Remember those days when you would have to bring home a fake baby and take care of it over the weekend? Well, it’s still a thing. As exhausting as it sounds, one teenager is carrying out this assignment and is in a complete mess. Olivia, a 14-year-old Richmond Hill, Georgia, freshman, is finding it hard to be a fake mother. Her mom, Lawren Galloway, explains how tough it is for her daughter to take care of the baby. It involves real crying, tears full of snot, and late nights with early mornings with the robot baby.
Olivia had to take care of William, an interactive robotic baby, over the weekend as a school assignment. By the end of the weekend, Olivia was fed up like an actual mother. Lawren explains, “Meet William. He’s Olivia’s interactive baby assignment for her Early Childhood Education Class. Now, meet Olivia with William. 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)”

Lawren is a mother of four and Olivia is the oldest of all. She explains that the process has been tough for her. However, it has been a learning process. Olivia’s mother explains, “It’s definitely been a learning experience. My favorite moment so far is when she came into my room last night around 3 am. 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.”
Moreover, Lawren’s post went viral and people had their own thoughts on the development. One user said:
This sh*t was funny, my sister left hers in the closet. She lost the key thing it came with.
when we thought it was the best idea to have a sleepover with both our babies together and they just ended up taking turns crying ALL night
I remember having one of these in HS over a weekend. I made plans to go to the movies and I had to walk out bc I had a fake crying baby. Talk about embarrassing
I took that class and yes I cried as well but I ended up getting a 99.9 on my grade and it teaches you a lot about how much it is to handle to take care of another human being who can’t walk,talk, feed itself, or wipe its own butt I took care of 10 kids all under the age of seven for my aunt and I tell you it teaches you a lot.
I did this my freshman year by sophomore year I had a baby on the way and my ACTUAL CHILD slept longer than this mf. They overdo the sh*t in school
This was worse then actually having the kid in that stage. I hated that project
