Hilarious Convos with a Two-year-old: I’m the Boss!

kid boss

I don’t know about you but I have had some doozy conversations with my girls when they were toddlers. I am talking full on, off-the-wall, did she really just say that conversations. I always wished I had recorded them. Some, I have shared with you on my blog. I had too. They were too good not too, while others got filed away and misplaced in my Mommy brain. It’s a crowded place up there and things are bound to get lost.

That's what the short film series Convos With My 2-Year-old is all about. Dad, Matthew Clarke, had the brilliant idea to immortalize these moments by re-enacting actual conversations between his 2-year-old daughter, Coco, and himself. But instead of Coco making a cameo, Matthew has a grown man, David Milchard, playing the adorable (if not completely irrational) Coco. The result? Convos With My 2-Year-Old is the funniest thing that I have seen in a really long time.

When you have a conversation with a toddler, you, as the adult, have to remember that you are having a conversation with a little being who is completely controlled by their emotions and self interest. Trying to rationalize with them will only result in your own insanity and indignation. Do yourself a favor and give yourself over to the madness, right now. Accept it. You will never win the argument. 

But when you play this out on film with a grown man, with a five o’clock shadow, showing up in his undies because he stripped down in the middle of the night, just because, and then a tickle fight ensues… there is a creepy factor that is only surpassed by the funny factor.

Let’s keep the pants on next time boys.

My favorite line?  NO! Because I’m naked, I’m the boss!

Do you find conversations or reasoning with your 2-year-old maddening? How do you diffuse the tension?

    My little brothers used to pee off the balcony at my parents house (it’s private property so oh well) and the youngest refused to go outside one night while I was babysitting. When I asked him why he told me "the peepee wolf will bite my wee wee off." Instead of laughing I just gave him a flashlight.

    My little sister (who is now 10) was really good at coming up with the most off the wall stuff, even in her first couple years at school. I couldn’t help but go with it most the time. I knew that if I tried to correct her she would get angry and there was no point in arguing. Sometimes, though, she would learn that "I" was wrong and promptly let me know. I had to hold in the laughter.
