Curious Toddler Can’t Stop Asking Mom “What Happened?”


A curious toddler is going viral for being adorably confused by her mom’s wardrobe malfunction.

Natasha Rexing, who runs the TikTok account natrex12 captured a video of her 2-year-old daughter, Imi, who was fascinated with the fact that her mom’s pants had a hole in them.

The adorable situation began when Natasha realized that Ima was fixated on something, so she asked her daughter “What happened?” Imi responded by saying, “There’s a hole,” and Natasha verified that she was correct. So Ima turned the tables and asked her mom “What happened?”

Natasha said she didn’t know what happened, but that answer didn’t work for Imi—she needed more information. So, she asked, “What happened?” seven more times before finally rephrasing her question with “It broken?”

Natasha explained that her pants were not broken and she would still “wear them.” But that just made the sweet toddler wonder “What happened?” again.

After reminding her mom that there was “a hole” in the pants and asking “what happened?” several additional times, Natasha cut off the video.

“I guess I need new pants … we will be discussing all night,” she captioned.

The Indiana native spoke with people after her video went viral with more than 2 million views. She told the publication that little Imi kept at it for “probably… five minutes” before losing interest. But when she woke up the next day, she was back to it.

“She then started again the next morning when I walked up in the same pajama pants,” Natasha shared.

“She has a strong future as an interrogator,” a commenter joked; “She just knows you’ll eventually break and tell her what happened.”

“Legend has it she is still asking about how the hole happened,” laughed another.
