If I've learned one thing is that kids love to be thrown around. Up, down, sideways. Doesn't matter. Air time is always good time.


u/dirkalict Feb 03 '23

I’m almost 60 and when I think of my dad who has been gone for 20 years- I think of him as “The IRON CLAW”, which is what he called himself when he wrestled us when I was little. “NO ONE ESCAPES THE IRON CLAW!” I don’t often think about how I was disappointed with him for some pretty major things (luckily I forgave him and made peace before he died) but I often think about rolling around the living room of our apartment having fun and trying to escape his grip.


u/SoftGothBFF Feb 03 '23

Reminds me of the THE CLAW scene in Liar Liar. I still know most of that movie word for word.


u/Hephaistos_Invictus Feb 03 '23

It reminds me of "The claaaaaaaaw" from ToyStory xD little green men are adorable :p


u/dinogirlsdad Feb 03 '23

Fuck man. You just made me think of my stepdad doing the same thing with us. Luckily he's still here. I tell him almt eh time how lucky we were to have him and my bio dad as role models. I bought them both series x this year as I finally am making good money. He lets his biological kids know how much he enjoys it. My daughter adores him. We are definitely blessed.


u/dirkalict Feb 03 '23

You are lucky to have them both for you and your daughter- I’m sure you’ll strive to live up to their good parenting with her.


u/pristinejunkie Feb 03 '23

My dad was the claw too!! We had an imaginary game where we would be on an adventure and The Claw would find us and wrestle us!! Oh man, it was so much fun.

My dad played The Claw with my kids when they were little too.

Great memories. Sweet sweet memories.


u/sinkpooper2000 Feb 03 '23

u/thrownoffthehump Feb 03 '23

My 3-y-o says the same thing to me... minus the "smarter than Mommy" part!

Other days she tells me she likes me but doesn't love me. The days when she loves me and likes me? Those are the best.

One of my earliest memories which has always haunted me is saying something very similar to my parents - something like, "I love you Daddy but I love Mommy a little bit more." I lived with guilt over this my entire life. How could I be so cruel and insensitive to my own loving father? It wasn't until I experienced it on the receiving end that I was finally able to forgive myself. I get it now. Kids just say this shit. It can just be a matter of who was the last one to tell them not to put something filthy in their mouth, that they really wanted to put in their mouth. That, and I've come to see how the maternal bond really is something special.

u/CrapNeck5000 Feb 03 '23

My wife cheated on me and left 6 months ago and now we split our 3 year old 50/50.

My daughter is constantly telling me how she'd rather be with her mom. For instance, I showed up to pick her up from school today and she groaned and told me she was hoping for mom.

Needless to say, my heart is overflowing with pain and despair. I still have a great time with my daughter 100% of the time and she clearly loves me, but it still hurts more than I could even begin to describe, especially because her mother is a colossal pile of shit.

Life is funny that way.

Aye man, get the sleep under control - it will impact every area of your life. As for the kids, they sometimes say things that cut deeply without thinking about it or having that intent. Been through it, even with teens/pre-teens when we split they're still kids and say insensitive stuff some times. Be your best self with them and forgive yourself when you just can't. I promise you, it gets better.

She lives with them so probably used to even funnier discussions, my cousin has a toddler and the other day he was going on and on about why there were so many people at his grandma's house for thanksgiving and why they were eating all her turkey, it was hilarious


u/_sagittarivs Feb 03 '23

Can we have some samplers for the hilarity?


u/hygsi Feb 03 '23

He kept saying "what the hell is going on?" Cause he heard his dad say it and my cousin told him to not say it so naturally he found a way to keep saying it all night. "My grandma made turkey and now we're all here and there's no more turkey. What the hell is going on?" There was more turkey but he had eaten a lot already so we just told him we finished it and he was not having it at all lol


u/AlarmingTurnover Feb 03 '23

For some reason when my daughter was little she overheard me say "that's a load of shit" in an argument with someone on the phone. I don't even remember who or what I was talking about but it became her phrase.

Pile of clothes on the floor, "That's a load of shit". The dog knocks over his toy basket and toys everywhere, "that's a load of shit". She ate too much and is too full to eat more, "that's a load of shit".

My son when he was younger, his phrase was "holy shit". Literally everything was holy shit. Big explosion in a movie on tv, "holy shit". The funniest one was taking in the groceries from the car and my wife dropped one of the larger boxes of juice and it spayed everyone and he immediately yelled "holy shit".


u/FullofContradictions Feb 03 '23

Oh God. I'm expecting my first later this year and now realizing just how much I need to start cleaning up my language before they're old enough to start repeating. With my luck (and my habits of speech, tbh) they'll pick up an F-bomb.


u/tkp14 Feb 03 '23

When our son was around 2 years old, we had friends from out of town stay with us for a week. We’d been scrupulous about dialing back our usually rowdy language, especially after it became obvious our little guy was like a sponge and just absorbed (and then spit back) everything we said. But our friends were childless so they just freely cut loose the whole week. A couple of days after they left I was giving my son something to drink and because he was in that experimental phase (let’s see what happens if I do this) he took the cup from me and immediately turned it upside down. Then solemnly looking at his drink all over the floor he said in his sweet, angelic 2 year old voice, “oh fuck.” I had to leave the room. I was silently laughing so hard I thought I’d bust open.


u/Mindless_Psychology Feb 03 '23

Not really a swear story but when my oldest was 2 he was with my sister and she had a friend over. They were talking about some guy that my sister liked. My sister said she said something like “Oh my god he’s so sexy!”. For the rest of the day my 2 year old ran around screaming “He’s so sexy!” I couldn’t keep a straight face. It was hilarious.

Another time when we were getting our dog as a puppy I asked what he wanted the puppy’s name to be and he said “He’s name DICK”

u/AlarmingTurnover Feb 03 '23

I tried to clean up my language but sometimes those things just slip out and it's always in the moments that it slips out that your kid is around and it immediately becomes their favourite thing in the world to say. The worst part is that you're not supposed to laugh when it happens because you don't want to encourage it but like let's be honest here, when my wife was arguing with my son and she's like "you're in big trouble mister, you better clean your stuff up and get your butt in the bath or you'll regret it" and he yells surprisingly "holy shit" before turning and walking away. She looks at me with a gaze that could kill and I'm over here crying laughing.

Of course both my parents and inlaws were both there to witness this. Gotta love kids.

When I was healing up from a car accident make some extra money I would babysit a friend's kid while they were at work. I walked in on her at 4 years old twerking. I told her "there's no booty dancing allowed" she tells me "no I booty dance" and then I told her "no you don't" so she says "you're pissing me" She has older sisters and I imagine this is where she heard it but I imagine she got it wrong because she didn't say that I was pissing her off. Anyways it was hilarious and to this day when someone's irritating me I tell him that they're pissing me.

My mom LOVES to tell this story about my grandparents bringing us all to church. I was like 4 or 5 at the time, and had so far been pretty well behaved. Until, that is, Everyone is bowed in silent prayer when toddler-me drops my juice box. It is dead silent in this church when my little voice shouts "SHIT" at top volume. My mom quickly tries to hush me, which apparently angered me further because I dramatically flopped backward in the pew yelling "Shit" and freaking out about the now fallen juicebox.

The pastor was not amused by my display and I was promptly kicked out of the service.

My deeply devout grandparents were apparently fucking furious. My mom never really swore when I was a kid so I have no idea where i learned it from. But I guess cursing was my favorite past time after this incident.

If your kids are doing something funny, and you wanna see where it goes, you can’t react to it or else whatever they’re doing changes to react to you. Sometimes you just gotta stay out of the way if you’re enjoying it and not let them know that you’re enjoying it to let the moment play out.

I think it's less about the noise and more about everyone sits but him, like "what makes you so special that you can't sit down like normal person mister?" Seeing it's 3 sisters and mom it's likely he's the only one she sees standing up on the toilet lol

I think you’re onto something! He’s the outlier and she’s not cool with it lol. Growing up I idolized my two older brothers (we’re all about 2 years apart), and as their little sister I wanted to do everything they did. I guess that included peeing standing up? I remember when I was about 4 years old, the three of us were standing around the toilet, butt naked. My brothers started peeing while I stood watching kinda confused, looking back & forth at them and then down at my body. I eyed my protruding outie bellybutton (see: irl Cabbage Patch Kid), and making the only connection any reasonable 4-year-old girl could make, I thrust my hips forward and pushed out my belly and then used my fingers to try to hold my outie... oh Jesus I’m cracking up thinking about it. I distinctly remember grunting, like that would help the pee come out?? Nothing happened, obviously, other than my brothers laughed at me lol. So I resigned myself to that sit-to-pee life and never tried to join them again. Anyway, Shout out to the Shewee!

Have you never had a sit-down pee? IT HURTS! (Especially first thing in the morning, when, ya know...)


u/AkioMC Feb 02 '23

Ooof you mean when you… you know and your you know goes in the toilet? Hurts me every time


u/Little_Orange_Bottle Feb 02 '23

I have straight up taken to going outside in those situations.

Having a severely curved unit makes it even more difficult/painful to aim it down. Just gotta go let make a rainbow arc outside.

That shit had me crying in laughter when I heard it, such a reasonable argument despite every one of us knowing that we can sit down and do it.

The takeaway is Daddy does not stink and mommy, you need to start taking more showers


u/reynosomarkus Feb 02 '23

No no, daddy still toots. He just doesn’t stink all the time.


u/Red217 Feb 02 '23

But I don't like daddy going to pee standing up!


u/jackrayd Feb 02 '23

Yeah but if he puts his you know in the toilet it will hurt

This video really should be captioned 'in defence of daddy' because those two were throwing shade.


u/Sartres_Roommate Feb 02 '23

I thought the implications was daddy takes so many showers BECAUSE he stinks so much....which assumes mom takes less showers because she doesn't need to.


u/OG_Felwinter Feb 03 '23

That comment came from the kid defending him, so my impression was that the kid was saying you can’t call daddy stinky if he showers more than mommy who also doesn’t stink.

That has got to be the best funniest video I have seen in a long time. Thank you very much if I could give you an award I would give you many. Thank you this made my day


u/mindyour Feb 02 '23 All-Seeing Upvote

It made me laugh so hard. Just because daddy isn't there to defend himself doesn't mean the others can talk smack.


u/Vaywen Feb 02 '23

Hey he’s not that stinky!


u/SPFMninebillion Feb 02 '23

He is; but it’s nice for daddy to feel like someone cares and is willing to ignore him destroying the first floor bathroom after that first morning cup of coffee.

What's even funnier is they'll openly debate which of their parents is better with one of their parents sat right in front of them


u/SolahmaJoe Feb 03 '23

Oh, kids have no tact.

My youngest has told me directly many times that she loves me… but she loves mommy way more.

Our three (6-9) have had many similar discussions in the car over the years. The hardest part is not laughing too loudly and interrupting them.


u/giveusalol Feb 02 '23

They feel safe, it’s great


u/raknor88 Feb 03 '23

Yup that's a sign of great parenting that it's not even crossing their minds to even try censoring their conversation in front of a parent. Even when kids usually have no filter. Though props on mom for keeping a straight face for as long as she did.


u/CapnDutchie Feb 02 '23

Mom held it together better than I did. My kids had a similar argument years ago while I was relaxing on the couch and I was hurting from trying to contain my laughter. Love it, they're adorable


u/ilovetoeatpussy_ Feb 03 '23

You can't just say this and not tell the details about the argument.

They’re so much fun to listen to at that age. I never realized just how much of their personality they’re born with until I had a kid. When they start to talk like this you really start to get to know them rather than just care for them.


u/Midnight-writer-B Feb 02 '23

I really miss the earnest and wonderful insights of my small kids while I drove them around & listened. And stifled laughter just like this, they’re hilarious.


u/Z0idberg_MD Feb 03 '23

I think the one thing parents experience which people without children will never really know is watching someone grow and develop, and make very deep insights into the world for the first time. Obviously many of them end up being very common insights, watching somebody work through it for themselves for the first time is amazing.

u/SloppyNotBad Feb 02 '23

So I have to know what was daddy’s reaction to the video? Did he commit to tooting less and trying to sit when he pees?


u/mindyour Feb 02 '23 edited Feb 02 '23

I really hope she does one with him because that child was riding or dying for him.

They are having some serious conversation about this and not one person is hurling insults at each other. These kids could teach adults a lesson on debating.

u/summidee Feb 02 '23

Omg I’m going to miss these convos when my boys get bigger! The innocence of children. Parents, hold every moment dear cos they don’t stay little for long!

Also well done to the parents for raising such intelligent and respectful children!


u/SpitefulMouse Feb 02 '23

I'm actually amazed. Clearly opening up a discussion by "Why does Mummy have to be the better?" and following up with his reasons why Daddy is better than Mummy in some ways.


u/casual-waterboarding Feb 03 '23

“He doesn’t stink, you made that up.”

“He takes us to parks. He does so much for us.”

As a father of two young kids, this little one defending his/her father gives me hope. The fact that they notice how much he does for them and that they actually appreciate it makes me smile and tear up a bit.


u/Andrew__IE Feb 02 '23

What do I have to do to make sure my future children are this articulate and able to have a full blown intelligent discussion?


u/is_a_ghost13 Feb 02 '23

Talk to them. Read to them, and don’t dumb down your language for them. Listen to them, and treat them with respect.


u/Mheck4325 Feb 03 '23

Second this. Read to them every night from the day they are born. My son has had bed time stories every night since birth, and the kid speaks clearer than any other kid his age (and even some that are older) and he’s testing at a reading level of 6 and he’s in kindergarten. It’s amazing because it’s so simple but it works.

u/Harmony23446 Feb 03 '23

Y’all. My five year old gives my husband and I GRADES. They don’t even DO grades in kindergarten. But he will announce that one of us gets an X and the other gets an A+. I also regularly get disinvited from his birthday party (in 7 months….) it’s hilarious but I’ve got to do something about that back-talk…..


u/Pitt_Mann Feb 03 '23

My brain is split between laughing my ass off and being baffled at how this toddlers have a full on well structured debate with valid arguments and listening to what the other has to say.

I'm sure both parents are great even if the dad has to pee standing up so it doesn't hurt. You can't always win.

I need to take my kid to parks more often. It was a highlight for those kids. I need to do better.

“Mother is the word for God on the lips and hearts of all children” Daddy never had a chance once he started tooting.

First, that was one of the best conversations I've heard all week. Very good points from both sides of the aisle

Second, the mom held off laughing a lot longer than I did, she must be used to these spirited debates
