A baby getting put to work early is causing quite a stir on social media.

In a now-viral video on Twitter, a 9-month-old baby is seen laying over the counter and washing the dishes while sucking a green pacifier.

Arabia-Iman Tillery posted a 15-second video of her son inadvertently washing off utensils while her mother speaks on the phone.

"My mom has my 9 month old son doing dishes," Tillery captioned the video.

The clip has amassed 4.1 million views and has 69,000 comments. 

"My mom got him to work already," Tillery iterated in a caption that can be seen on the screen as the baby happily splashes the water in the sink, according to Fox News.

"My son was getting a little fussy before a nap, like he usually does. [My mom] figured he might as well play with water and ‘wash the dishes’ a little, and it worked really well," Tillery told TIME.

The unintentional video was meant to be posted just for laughs, and Tillery seemingly didn't know it would attract so many views. She just thought it was "really, really cute."

"I think the funniest thing of all is that clearly he’s not actually washing, he has no idea what’s happening."

The baby enjoyed the chore so much, he would've carried on had he not been made to put the dishes down.

"We had to make him stop so he could take a nap," Tillery said.

Kids do the darndest things, and sometimes it's captured on camera for all to see.

In another viral video posted on Facebook, two toddlers are seen running to each other to give the other a hug.


In September 2019, 2-year-olds Maxwell and Finnegan were seen trying to embrace each other after spotting the other on a street in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan.

The two buddies struck up a friendship after seeing each other while riding the bus together for school. They've now been friends for over a year.

"They just took off toward each other and I just got my phone out as quickly as possible, and just tried to record it. They are just too cute together," Maxwell's father, Michael Cisneros, told to PIX 11

"With all the racism and hate going on, I just think it's a really beautiful video. The reason that it's getting attention [is] because it is with a little black boy and a little white boy...but if it can change someone's mind, you know, or just change their view on things, then it's totally worth it," Cisneros explained.

To date, the video has 1.2 million views and 12,000 shares.

Cisneros is usually a private person and doesn't share his family's milestones on social media. He addressed the fact that some may think he posted the video for likes, shares and attention.

"Definitely not staged, and it was just a lucky moment and I got it on camera, now with all the attention it's getting, it’s just gonna be a great story to tell him when he's older," he said.
