Awesome babysitter dresses up as mermaid for her three-year-old charge

Fifteen-year-old Keegan Carnahan of Florida looks after Alidy Haslam whenever her mom has to go out. One evening the teenager had even more fun than usual...

"She had decided to wear her little mermaid outfit around the house that day and I thought it would be a fun surprise to bring out mine for her bathtime. I got [the tail] when I was 12 and was going through a phase," the high school student explained. 

She sent a picture of the two of them with fish tails to her friends as well as Alidy's mom, Jenna. The sight of her daughter's beaming face thrilled her. Alidy's father died tragically in November of last year, and since then the little girl has often been sad.

She's also constantly wanted to wear her favorite costume around. "Nobody ever matches with her." But now, "she finally found someone to connect with again," Jenna described it emotionally.

Sure that Keegan is a real-life mermaid, Alidy apparently now wants pink hair like her babysitter too! 

What an incredibly sweet idea the teenager had to cheer up her little charge. The love poured in on Twitter, with a consensus that Keegan might just be the best babysitter ever.
