A Waffle House employee went viral on TikTok after being captured carrying a baby while fixing food orders. She later revealed why she had the child at work.

Parents often find difficulty balancing their careers and taking care of their children. At times, they find themselves compromising one or the other.

At worst, parents of little kids who cannot be left home alone may face a situation where they have no one to help watch over their children.

Such was presumed to be the situation of a Waffle House employee who recently went viral on TikTok and had viewers pointing out how difficult it is to be a working mother.

Since posting the video, Kizzle, who goes by the username @kizzle360, accumulated over 3.7 million views and several comments on her 12-second video.

Kizzle’s post showed a Waffle House worker behind the counter, preparing food for customers while carrying a toddler with one hand.

Without much context, many assumed that the woman had no choice but to bring her child to work and even praised her for multitasking. One comment read:

“So you telling, she had to hold her baby at 25-30 pounds AND do her job and y’all have the audacity to shame her… she doing what she has to do [sic].”

Another user pointed out that the woman in the video was a clear example of why free accessible childcare is needed in the country.

However, it seems that people had it all wrong. TikTok user Tiffany Clark came forward in the comments section, claiming to be the woman in the clip. She explained her situation and rejected all the assumptions people made about her.

Having to raise children in the busy modern world is a problem many moms face, such that little assistance will be of big help.

Clark revealed that the baby she was holding was her niece, who social services were going to take unless she stepped in right away.

However, when social services brought the child, her shift at work was not over. With no choice left, Clark carried her niece while finishing her work.

She also revealed that her boss did not know about her niece at work and only found out when the TikTok video went viral. At the time she wrote the comment, Clark was still waiting for possible consequences at work.

Although she didn’t elaborate further, TikTok users said that Clark should be given “love, respect, and help.” Although the child was not hers, she took the initiative to be the guardian instead of handing her over to social services.

Having to raise children in the busy modern world is a problem many moms face, such that little assistance will be of big help.

For example, Heather Delaney previously pointed out the importance of helping moms with little kids. The mother-of-three shared that taking care of a child can also cause exhaustion, which makes every free time valuable.

Further, Delaney encouraged others to offer moms a hand even before they ask for help. Even the simplest assistance would lessen the feeling of burnout.
