A 7-year-old throws a prom for his babysitter and it's adorable

Is this the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Coronavirus isolation continues in America with large events cancelled across the country including high school proms. 

But one seven-year-old boy, Curtis Rodgers in North Carolina wasn't going to let lockdown ruin his babysitter's big moment. 

Sharing a video of his beautiful gesture, the young boy revealed that he didn't want his babysitter to miss out on her prom so he made his own for them at home... with the help of his mum. 

"I planned it out because Rachel probably wanted to see me a lot," Curtis says in a video. "She also is one of the best people I've known."

Curtis hadn't seen his nanny, Rachel Chapman in over two months due to isolation restrictions, but didn't forget her at any point in their separation.

Speaking about the surprising act of kindess, Rachel revealed:

"I was kind of bummed putting my dress on because I was sad that I don't get to wear it to my senior prom.

"After leaving it and having that time with him because it was the first time I had seen him in two months, it was really fun, and I'm really glad that he did that."

Curtis' mother, Elissa said that her young son spared no details - dressing in a suit that would coordinate Rachel's outfit and planning their favourite meal:

"He was very excited and wanted to make sure everything was just right and get his suit on and pick out his bow tie that matched her dress," she says.

"It was really cute. He was really excited for it to start and make sure he was ready to impress her."

The primary school boy organised for a red carpet to be laid at the beginning of his driveway, before both of them walked up to the long dining table where he served an entree of peanut butter and apples - their favourite after-school snack.

He made sure they were always socially distanced by holding a foam pool noodle between them - as all gallant men do these days - and played her favourite songs on Google for their makeshift dancefloor.

"First he was waiting outside when we got there with the pool noodle and then he led me into the backyard," Rachel reveals. "He had all my favorite foods and everything. I could tell he put a lot of thought into it."

"They're awesome together," Curtis' mother adds. "They have tons of fun. She's really become a special part of our family. We love her. She's awesome."

How sweet is that!
