A Texas A&M University professor is being praised after he lent a hand — or an entire arm — when a student couldn’t find a babysitter for her infant before class.

Ashton Robinson said in a Facebook post that she emailed Henry Musoma, her professor at Mays Business School, to tell him she would have to miss a class because she couldn’t find a babysitter for her son, Emmett, in time for the scheduled session.

Robinson said she was surprised when Musoma responded with a simple solution: “Please bring him!”

The single mom posted a video showing the grinning professor giving his lecture while toting the infant in one of his arms.

“Being a single mom is so challenging but it’s people like Dr. Henry Musoma that make life just a tiny bit easier!” she wrote. “THIS is why I’m so proud to be an Aggie! Definitely something I’ll never forget and can’t wait to someday tell Emmett that it’s because of people like this that mommy was able to graduate from the best university in the world.”

Musoma’s unconventional solution to Robinson’s problem was widely praised online, including by university President Michael K. Young.
