NASHVILLE -- A funny thing happened in a business class in Nashville.

Student and single mother Amanda Osborn couldn't get child care for her toddler Monday, so she took him to school with her.

Halfway through her business professor's lecture at DeVry Tech, Amanda's little boy did what little boys do -- he got fidgety.

So she put him down, and he ran right to the professor, who picked him up and kept right on teaching. Amanda snapped a picture and posted it online. Now, it’s gone viral.

Professor Joel Bunkowske says he never gave it a second thought, because it felt completely natural. He said later, "We’re all in this together, to just make an incredible learning experience for anyone who needs a hand up."
