A mom unintentionally went viral after posting screenshots of her Roblox avatar instructing her 11-year-old daughter to remove the lasagna and garlic bread from the freezer on Jan. 4.
Comedian and Chicago mother ChaCha Watson spoke with Today about how she tried calling her daughter’s phone to get her to remove that night’s dinner from the freezer. However, her daughter, Miracle, wasn’t answering. Knowing her daughter, Watson got the idea to meet her daughter in the game she’d play with her, Roblox.
Roblox is an online game that enables children to interact with multiple worlds and games along with other players. Watson and Miracle had been playing for over a year, which explains why the mother knew where to find her preoccupied child.
Miracle didn’t answer the phone because she would’ve been logged out of her game.
Watson saw that her daughter was playing the game Berry Avenue, similar to the Sims game.
“She just so happens to be in the beginning stage when you first pop up on the game,” Watson explained. “So when I popped up, she was just so happened to pull up.”
Watson’s avatar hopped in the car with her daughter’s avatar.
“And I said, ‘You see me calling you!'” she recalled. “And then she was like, ‘I’m sorry mom.'”
Watson said she knew her daughter obeyed her instructions when she noticed the vehicle stopped moving. The Chicago mother explained that she wasn’t trying to go viral but show what she had to go through due to her child.
The screenshots were posted to her Facebook.
While ChaCha made people laugh, she also taught many parents a unique way to connect with their children.
“Being a single parent, you just want to make sure that you’re spending time with your kids,” she said. “That’s really important to me — to make sure I’m spending quality time with her. So I downloaded Roblox, and …that was just one of the best things ever.”
She encouraged parents to download the game, not to do what she did but to spend quality time with them.
Frozen food brand Stouffer’s also sent the “Lasagna mom” some of their Stouffer’s products.
