Leaving your kids alone with people who have never watched them can be the source of a lot of nerves, even if those babysitters happen to be good friends. When young couple Hannes and Erica were left alone with Alex, their friends' 6-month-old, for a full day and night, even the babysitters themselves were nervous.

"After all, you want to do everything right, especially when it's not your own kid," said Hannes, "and we don't have kids of our own yet."

To calm their nerves, they asked themselves what the worst thing that could happen was and then let their imaginations go wild. They decided to document these worst-case scenarios and send the photos to Alex's parents.

The photoshop project features baby Alex in all sorts of perilous scenarios--none of which, you'll see, are extremely likely. Hannes called it a win-win-win, as the babysitters had fun (and were able to relax a little), the parents enjoyed the updates and Alex will be able to look back at it and smile one day.
