"[Alidy] 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," Keegan told BuzzFeed News.

"I got [the tail] when I was 12 and was going through a phase," she said.

Alidy's mom, Jenna Haslam, told BuzzFeed News that her daughter is now convinced that Keegan is a legit mermaid.

She added that Alidy now wants pink "mermaid hair," like Keegan's.

People are so touched by Keegan's next-level babysitting move.

They cannot handle the sweetness of the mermaid moment.

People want her as a babysitter.

So many people called her the best ever.

@selftltledtyler @targagaryen best babysitter ever!

Haslam said that the moment brought her daughter, and subsequently her, a lot of happiness during a hard time.

Alidy has worn a costume every day since her dad died in November.

"But nobody ever matches with her," Haslam said. "She finally found someone to connect with again."

You can't underestimate the power of dress-up, mermaids, or a great babysitter.
