Watch this ninja mom attempt to scoot out of her sleeping baby's room

The struggle is real! We're sure you can relate to this mom as she attempts to get out of her baby's room without waking him up.

So you finally got the baby sleeping soundly in his crib and now comes the Olympics-level challenge—getting out of the room without waking him up. In this hilarious video, one mom was caught on camera lying on the floor near her baby's crib, slowly scooting towards the exit.

And don't think she did it all in one go. It was more like: Pause. Scoot. Pause. Hold your breath. Don't breathe. The baby will hear you breathe. Scoot. Push yourself a little further. Almost there. Did he just move? Pause. Panic. Start again.

We see the look of quiet determination in those glowing eyes, Mama, and we have nothing but respect and admiration for your ninja-level skills when it comes to putting your baby down and getting outta there before all hell breaks loose.

We're convinced this mom is secretly a spy or a secret agent. Her husband, who we thank for sharing this video with the world, even suggested she'd be great in the army: "PS The SA Army are calling me for you to do training on the reverse leopard crawl !!" That's right, moms are the real masters of stealth.
