A simple mistake may have been just what everyone needed Monday night. 

NPR’s swing editor Christopher Dean Hopkins started posting on NPR’s official Facebook account about the exploits of Ramona.

The posts, which were quickly removed, described what Ramona was doing:

“Ramona is given new toy: Smiles, examines for 20 seconds, discards.” 

“Ramona gets a hug: Acquiesces momentarily, squirms to be put down.”

“Ramona sees three cats 30 feet away: Immediately possessed by shrieking, spasmodic joy that continues after cats flee for their lives.”

As soon as Hopkins realized he was posting on NPR’s account instead of his own, he deleted the posts and added another one:

Turns out Ramona is Hopkins’s daughter, who isn’t even a year old yet, Babble reported.

But Ramona’s adventure was maybe just what readers of the NPR account needed after the terror of the Las Vegas massacre.

And readers responded to Ramona, asking for regular updates from the girl’s family.
