2-YO’s Snarky Response After Mom Catches Him Making a Mess Had Us in Stitches | “Why Are You Taking a Picture of Me?”
A TikTok video of a little two-year-old boy, Semaj having the most snarky responses went viral with 30 million views and we cannot stop looking at him. The funny video starts with his mom, Azha Prather intruding on him washing dishes in the kitchen sink like an adult would. "What you doin'?" she asks him. While standing on the small stool, he responds, "Washin' dishes. Why are you taking a picture of me?" "I'm not taking a picture of you, but you're making a mess," she replied. "You got water everywhere." Semaj replied, "You got shoes on, though." "What that mean?" Prather asked him. "So, go over there and clean up," he said, as he returned to doing dishes. In an interview with People, Prather says, "It comes naturally to him. I try to keep a camera on him all the time because I just never know what he's going to say. I never know what he's going to do. It's just his lifestyle, just Maj being Maj."
Prather was aware her boy was special when she shared a soon-to-be viral video of him saying she was beautiful just 'cause she offered him some fruit snacks. "It started with that video when he was telling me that I'm so beautiful. I wasn't looking for it to blow up as it did. I was just recording him one night, he had just got in bed," she explained. "And he was like, 'Mommy, I want some fruit snacks,' so I came back downstairs, got him fruit snacks, then got back in the bed, and he's like, 'What's up beautiful?' All that because of fruit snacks. So it started from there." Many people on TikTok even refer to him as an adorable "old soul."
"My grandmother, whom he calls Ma, really told me, when we came home from the hospital. I walked in and she was looking kind of strange. So I asked her, 'Ma, why are you looking like that?' And she said, 'That's gonna be a strange baby.'" "I kind of took offense to that, like 'What do you mean by that?'" she recalls, after which her grandmother reassured her it wasn't a bad thing. "She said, 'You're gonna see,' and from there, it just started moving fast. I was not expecting it. I'm never expecting any of it," she said. "I know it's kind of hard to believe, but it's genuinely who he is. Sometimes I look at him and I'll be like, 'What did I—where did you come from? Who are you?'"
"He loves to read. He loves to play basketball and baseball. He just loves sports," she shared. "Reading, of course, washing dishes, eating his chicken pasta. We also have one day a week that we go out and have a family day." "I have people asking me, 'What do you do? What do you do with him?' And honestly, it's nothing special. I just take up time with him. We read and we do a lot of learning together since I set up his room as a classroom after taking him out of daycare," Prather revealed about Semaj.
