This one is great. A 3 year old boy is caught on camera telling his mom that he did not eat the sprinkles (I used to call these “chocolate ants”), while his face is covered in sprinkles.
My 3 year old fibbing to my face, and it is surprisingly cute haha! After I filmed it we had a VERY long talk about lying. He has an amazing imagination and loves to tell us stories, however the lying is JUST starting to occur. We are currently working on the difference, and he is doing really well. :)
I love kids. The video is at the bottom. Here’s some of the dialogue:
John, what are you eating?
You didn’t eat anything?
John, look at mommy.
Are you telling me the truth?
You didn’t have any snacks?
Let me see, you didn’t have any snacks?
(Boy opens mouth wide, makes “aaaahhhhhh” sound, mouth is full of sprinkle bits.)
Open wide, let me see.
(Mom zooms in on sprinkles.)
Really, you didn’t have any snacks?
John, come here. John, can you explain to me why the sprinkles are emptied?
Well, they’re not empty.
John, look at me.
They’re not empty.
Did you eat those sprinkles?
No, I did not eat sprinkles.
John, you have sprinkles on your face.
(John touches his face.)
Oh, no no. I did not eat sprinkles.
