The mother of two, from Akron, Ohio, was trying to film her online tutorial when her baby made a noise every time she spoke.

Mrs. Kolkovich had to repeat her introduction ‘Hello, I’m Professor Kolkovich and welcome to English 2201’ eight times before finally giving up with an exasperated ‘ahhhh’.

At one point she turned the camera to her adorable daughter looking innocently into the lens.

She said, ‘This is my baby. She doesn’t want to be quiet today. ‘

Mrs. Kolkovich tried to continue recording so that she could edit the clips into something the baby was not in, but her daughter made it impossible by constantly making noises.

She tweeted: ‘I love that my video has brought joy to others and an opportunity to feel sorry for the ridiculousness of trying to do two full-time jobs at once (daycare + teaching).

‘Yesterday my 8-year-old reenacted it for his second grade. He played me and enlisted a friend to play the baby. ‘

Responding to another comment, she said, “She gives me a few short windows every day when I’m fooled into thinking she can play on her own.

“But I have to be in the same room and watch her regularly, and” quietly “is obviously not part of the plan!”

On another note, she added, ‘I’ll definitely have to roll with outtakes! I expect the baby and her sounds to be a constant presence in my classes, but I just wanted a very brief welcome where I looked like a professional adult talking to other adults. What a dream! ‘
