What's adorable about this brat lying over and over?
Keep up the story kid in the face of the facts. Works for Republicans all the time.
Inserting politics on a cute kid video? Seriously?! I'm a raging, flaming bleeding heart liberal, but jeez, give it a break!!!
Both parties cancel each other out on that score.
Cute! Kids tell outrageous lies til about 7 or so, its normal as they learn how to tell the truth. My 4 yr granddaughter told her teacher her nana was eaten by a shark in a pool- she doesnt even have a nana!- , told me her mother kicked her in the face, and that her classmate didnt come to school because he slept all day! Lol. A little humor, a little hey your full of baloney, crisis passed. This mom shld have held mirror to hus face, lol
Hahahaha!!! That's just how they learn. They tell a whopper, and then you reward them when they tell the truth.
I once heard "the couch did it".
Yep, I've heard some whoppers in my time spent with kids. It's pretty damn cute but you do have to teach them to 'fess up.
LOL @ 'the couch did it!' Animals are often blamed, too!
Seriously!?!? Heard of Benghazi??
My mom tells a story about my brother peeing his pants and blaming it on my Uncle. lol!
This is what kids do. While doing stupid shit, they say stupid shit. It's really just that simple.
LOL. "I did not eat the sprinkles."
That mom held it together. I totally would have been snickering by then.
Based on the way that kid was starting to hold his butt at the end, I'd say he was getting ready to get a swat.
The freepers have found a new one-word dog whistle. "Benghazi". Instead of calling President Obama the "N" word and ranting about Mexicans stealing their jobs, they just say, "Benghazi".
They lie because of all the whoppers parents tell them about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and such.
/eye roll at throwing in Benghazi
Loved how he felt his face for sprinkles, couldn't find any, and kept on lying.
Call me scrooge but watching a little kid lying repeatedly wasn't adorable. Now Denver the guilty dog on the other hand — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8ISzf2pryI
Clicky Link – Denver the guilty dog
So you know what happened in Benghazi (I'm assuming) but still trying to make the credible argument that people who are upset about it are racist? I seriously don't understand liberal logic.
Too bad that kid hasn't learned to tell the truth, otherwise that would have been cute.
@Crystal…if you are trying to get political traction on this blog…good luck. All you're likely to get is derisive eyerolls…deservedly so, btw.
Yeah I was just going to say he has a potential career in politics, either side. I would have held up a mirror to his face.
I hope that mommy explained that you would have be punished for eating the sprinkles but by lying you are now going to get twice the punishment ergo it is always better off to tell the truth
I really don't like to get into politics here. But I can't just sit by. Look up operation Fast and Furious. It was shipping weapons between America and Mexico. Not one side is right, so lets just move along.
I'm not trying to get anything. I just hate ad hominem attacks (ie both comments I responded to). I don't care if people disagree with me – and usually like debating with people who do so I can see how they think – but the whole ALL REPUBLICANS are evil thing is getting really old. (Also hate it when people do it to Democrats, I just don't see that as much)
The first statement you felt the need to respond to was neither directed at you personally nor anyone else personally and therefore was not an "ad hominem" attack.
You could argue that the second post you responded to was an ad hominem attack but it was, more accurately, a discrediting tactic.
Half of you are incredibly obnoxious.
The other half, who understand kids and have the ability to lighten the f&#$ up once in awhile, may stay.
C'mon, it was cute! They had this on the Today Show, since this was hard hitting news. Apparently, mommy and son had a long talk on telling the truth after this was shot.
I think it's adorable how he says, "nuffin"
Yeah, kids at that age don't really get the whole lying/truth thing and developmentally, the ability to lie is actually an important psychological step because it shows the understanding of "other" outside of "self". (until that age, kids don't understand that their thoughts are their own and think everyone else can, for all intents and purposes, see inside their minds). So, as important as it is to talk to them about lying, expecting them to "get it" at that age is wholly unrealistic.
Ugh…how many times did I say "that age"? Please overlook the repetitiveness of my post.
C'mon, guys, he's just a baby! He's probably still in diapers. Of course he made up a story; I'm sure Mom turned this into a teachable moment. Seriously, don't have kids if you don't want to have this convo like 5 times a day for the first 5 years or so. They have to learn somewhere – that's our job as parents!
Yeah, what Lola said – his behavior is absolutely developmentally appropriate. That's way more official than what I said :-). And true, to boot.
As his impulse control matures the fibbing will abate. He's not a mastermind just yet. He left sprinkles on the counter. Lol. BUT he's smart enough to know that the bottle of sprinkles aren't empty. Lol@how he corrects his mom on that tidbit!
Judging a toddler?………REALLY?
LMBAO!….GEEZ, I just love some of u!
I am pretty new to CDAN and I enjoy reading through the guesses for the blinds, but sometimes yall really take it to the limits with these ridiculous comments. #1 – it is a freaking kid. Kids lie because they are kids and they have to learn moral boundaries. All these people acting offended and like the kid is going to turn out badly and "its not cute" are just ridiculous. Please take the sticks out of your ass. It can be exhausting reading through your continual crybaby comments. Tell me, how comfortable is the futon in your mon's basement? #2 – again – it is a freaking kid. Leave your liberal v conservative crap out of it. Find a political blog to argue on instead of a gossip site that posts stuff about exposed nipple alcoholic celebrities who love penis in the closet and steal from movie sets while stabbing frienemies in the back while doing coke.
lol @ "The couch did it!"Love it!Little kids lie. It's a developmental milestone. It's part of the way they understand the world around them.
My nephew used to blame his guardian angel whenever he'd fart.
Out of nowhere the other day, my 3 year old blamed a fart on a non-existent spider! I've learned not to ask the question "Did you (fill in the blank)?" it encourages them to deny it. Instead, I just ask "Why did you (eat the sprinkles, draw on the wall, use mommy's anti-wrinkle cream on your feet, miss the toilet when you peed…)
Then you get the response…"I don't know!"
I meant to add that it is cute and age appropriate. The first time my son did it, it took everything not to laugh. He's learning.
Maria, that was my mantra for many years, "he's learning, he's learning". Repeated to myself no less than 100 times daily as my little guys pelted me with "but why, Momma?" 25 times in a row, until I just had to say "because God made it that way". Not only are the kids learning; we're learning, too. I never ever thought I could have the patience I now possess after 14 years of parenting!
Aww, Maria! I love how babies and toddlers can toot whenever they please, and go on with their business, as if nothing happened. It may be immature, but I always find it so funny.
I did find it hilarious when she said "it's empty!" And he replied "it's not empty". it wasn't.
Ok, having a senior moment, but saw this video on a show where the end of the video showed him as a grown-up…Lance Armstrong….
My sister's 12-year-old daughter said "yes" when asked if she had walked the dog after school. My sis made eye contact with her, then asked her again, "are you SURE you walked the dog after school?". Her daughter kept eye contact with her when she said "yes" again…
Then my sister says "do you know how I know that you're lying? I took the dog to work with me today".
Couldn't have said it better myself. Ugh, I'm a total political junkie but I don't come to CDAN for it. What a buzzkill
Hahaha @Agent. That reminds me of when I was probably 5ish years old and I used a curse word (I had no idea what it meant, I was probably repeating what someone said), and of course my parents scolded me. My excuse for that one was that God made me do it.
Today the 3 year old step disco said he thought it was the invisible man in the closet that did something. There's no closet in the room. As Buddha once said – we are all human beings trying to escape suffering. Children are human beings trying to escape time out.
Jolene, when I was about 5, a neighbor kid asked me what H-E-L-L spelled (her parents would spell when they wanted to curse) and I said "Hell" and my mother heard me and she washed my mouth out with soap–and all the time she was carrying me to the bathroom I was crying and telling her "I wasn't cussing, I was spelling!"
I find nothing funny about a toddler repeatedly lying. He's starting young.
wtf does Behghazi have to do with this adorable little boy? This is a cute and entertaining little video glad it was posted.
Ha, Car! I remember when I was little there was a Barney song with a lyric "they swam all over the dam". The next few days I walked around singing "and they swam and swam all over the…… ….. ….DAM". I thought I was hot shit.
I never had my mouth washed out with soap, but my mom and neighorhood mothers came up with a discipline for foul language. We all made butt and poop jokes nonstop. Everytime we were caught speaking "potty talk", we would have to sit in the bathroom for a few minutes. I remember making a butt joke at a birthday party around the age of 6. My friend's mom took me out of the line we had going to get into the pool, and sent me to the bathroom. While I don't think it was the best method of punishment, I do remember cursing the woman who sent me to the bathroom, which made me miss out on precious swim time, and how embarrassed I was to be punished in front of my peers. From then on all of my butt, fart, and poop jokes were told to a select few who wouldn't tell on me. I always made sure no adults were around to hear it either.
Puggle ahh you're lucky, my brothers and sisters and I always got the soap treatment. We could always immediately spit it out and rinse our mouths, but the words "Do you want soap in your mouth!?" still haunt my nightmares. Along with the wooden spoon. But I am the oldest of 6 and us oldest four are less than 5 years apart so I don't blame my Mom for investing in SoftSoap stock.
Excuse me Crystal but im gonna need you to shut your mouth when you're talking to me. Thanks in advance.
I got to give it to him, he was NOT wavering!
I'm always grateful when someone plays the Benghazi card. Means I can skip the rest of what they have to say and move on to the next comment, because they are going to have absolutely nothing of substance to offer.
@Pugglewug, that butt joke story is hilarious. I remember when it was so risky to say things like "butt" and "boobs." Hee!
@g.strathmore, I work with children, and I cannot count the number of times I have stopped myself from saying the term "potty talk", when intercepting butt/fart/boob jokes.
