Well I've often said that there's little point trying to 'reason' with a superman obsessed toddler! Sometimes 'because I said so' will suffice! He seems to bear that theory out. But it did make me laugh and was more amusing than watching a 3yr old having a screaming and kicking temper fit on the floor! (I couldn't believe it was his mother he was talking to at first, esp. with him calling her 'Linda', until she actually said 'because I am the mom'.) I wonder what the outcome was? Did he get those cupcakes? *I watched it on YouTube and have to say his 'mom' seems to spend a hell of a lot of time videoing this kid - check out her other vids.

Im caught in the middle very cute kid but a horror in the making, he seems very intelligent, its up to the parents to channel it in the right direction if you check out the same video on U Tube, the mother has a discussion with some posters below the video.

I'm just about to read some of the comments - having looked at one or two of the other vids - have to say at one point I felt like just shouting at her 'for god's sake shut up and leave him alone!'
There's a lot of prompting and trying to evoke the required responses from him going on there isn't there? She started to 'get on my nerves'. And a lot of him just repeating what she was saying back to her with her keeping on until he did?
In one you could see that it was someone else videoing and the mother talking (to one side) but little Mateo looking straight at the camera. I think I'd get a bit cheesed off having a cam pointed at me so often.
Thanks for posting it - I'm having it for breakfast with my kawfeeee!
*edit to say I have sympathy for his teachers when he is old enough to go to school!
** editing again to say I was impressed that he'd learned quite a lot of sign language (going on the dates) before he was 2. As well as being an obviously advanced 'talker' for his age. (My dog is doing a bit of sign language now - tapping my foot to say stop watching that kid and take me out!)
So reading the comments will have to wait.
