“This is my first time babysitting and idk where I went wrong but my niece is currently asleep on her head,” Mikaela tweeted along with a photo of the eerie black-and-white image.

“Do I call the parents or the exorcist?” The pics caused quite the ruckus on Twitter, with Mikaela's followers offering everything from advice to hilarious memes.

Despite the numerous Paranormal Activity references, it turns out Mikaela's niece didn't need the help of an exorcist after all.

The child’s mother told Buzzfeed News confirmed that her daughter is a regular sleep-headstand-er.

“She’s been quite acrobatic lately,” she said.

“It baffles me as well,” she said, adding, “I think it’s just her settling down and getting comfortable.”
