We all know that it is not a good idea to leave your baby or toddler alone for more than a minute, because they could wreck havoc in a very short space, and sadly, Bandile Mzolo has learnt this the hard way.

Taking to TikTok, he has shared the messy and hilarious incident which took place in their daughter’s bedroom, with her smearing Vaseline all over her face and head while she was left unattended.

In the video, Mzolo is seen scooping up the Vaseline from their daughter’s face and head, trying to put it back into its container.

They are also seen scooping some Vaseline from a wash cloth, which we assume they tried using to wipe off the Vaseline from their daughter’s head.

The famous kids bop, Baby Shark, has been put over the video and viewers have expressed how they wish they could watch the original video to hear the parents’ reaction to having to remove the thick layers of Vaseline from their daughter’s head and face.
