Baby steals mom’s cellphone and makes an impressive run for it


Having your phone out and having a kid means you always run the risk of the device getting absolutely destroyed. Babies may discover the world tactilely, but there’s always the chance they’ll put your brand new iPhone into their mouth and chomp down.

This enterprising youngster certainly knew the value of a smartphone and decided to run off with it instead of digging into it like a Sunday supper. Could the kid be making a viral video in hopes of internet fame? Or were they just headed to the pawn shop to get some quick cash?

We may never know where this baby was heading but, by the looks of things, the adorable youngster sure is proud of themselves for nearly getting away with petty theft.
