Alexis Olympia Jr seems to be giving mom a little trouble at bath time. So Serena Williams took to Twitter for some advice.

Our littlest Grand Slam champion seems to be giving mom a little trouble again, and this time, it’s with bathtime.

Serena Williams tweeted she’s struggling to get baby Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr to cooperate at bathtime, and when she tried to put her pajamas on, “she was flipping like a fish fresh out of water.”

She jokingly says, “If this was an Olympic sport she would have gotten the Gold and I would not even place. There’s got to be an easier way.”


Mother may I?

A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on

Well, hate to break it to you, Serena, but there is no hard-and-fast rule, nor is there a step-by-step guide. We’re all pretty much winging it. But you know you can always count on the internet to either share in your pain and make you feel a little less alone or offer words of advice that might be pretty useful.

Here's what your followers had to say:

“We have a fish at our house too!”

“Must have mom’s determination and strength!”

Songs and games to do the trick

If all else fails, just surrender until she's old enough to dress herself

I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
