A presumably sleep-deprived mom was startled when she checked the baby monitor and saw her precious bundle cuddled next to a creepy ghost baby.

The Chicago area mother couldn’t believe her droopy eyes. Could there really be the spirit of a long-departed infant sleeping with her baby?

But, it’s cool. It wasn’t a ghost.

The 32 year old stay-at-home mom, named Maritza Cibuls, was only seeing things when she was home alone with the kids one night while her husband was working.

She was checking the baby monitor in her son’s room when she definitely did see something weird that made her heart stop a moment.

“So last night I was positive there was a ghost baby in the bed with my son. I was so freaked out, I barely slept. I even tried creeping in there with a flashlight while my son was sleeping,” she wrote.

Would this sight not totally freak you out? Call the priest. There’s a ghost baby leering at the baby monitor.

So, there’s an explanation. “Well, this morning I go to investigate a bit further. It turns out my husband just forgot to put the mattress protector on when he changed the sheets.”

She also posted the picture of the adorable, smiling, non-creepy baby image on the mattress label.

No ghost. Yet, the label was so perfectly positioned next to the real baby, smiling like a demon and glowing like the fourth of July.

That’s why her post went viral.

We all saw it.
