Video Of Toddler Having Full Conversation With Her Dad Goes Viral
| Last updated
Having a conversation with a baby or toddler can usually be a bit one-sided, and you often have to communicate in a ridiculous, high-pitched voice while waggling your arms around to try and maintain their attention - only for the child to offer nothing but pure apathy in return.
But this dad didn't have to try quite so hard with his kid, managing to have a good ol' chinwag with her while watching TV.
It looks - and sounds - so natural that they could be two old mates catching up over a cold beer, although if you listen closer, you soon realise the young toddler is speaking complete gobbledegook.
Shanieke Pryor - who lives in Clarksville, Tennesee - filmed her other half Deztin chatting away to their daughter Kingston and shared the hilarious exchange on Facebook, writing: "Only this child!! Having a full-fledged conversation with Daddy and Daddy is just as bad."
Sure, the actual content of what the kid is saying might be a little off, but that intonation is spot-on - as are the facial expressions and gestures, pointing at the TV and nodding along in agreement at all the right times.
And her dad doesn't miss a beat, chipping in with quips like: "They need to work on that, right?" and "That's what I was wondering, because I don't know what they are going to do next season."
At the end of the video, her dad says: "We think a lot alike."
Social media users commented to say how 'cute' it was to see the two bonding.
One person wrote: "This is too cute! Love the fact that [they are] spending quality time together!"
Someone else said: "Cutest thing ever! I love this!"
A third agreed: "Love this. Soooo cute."
Another person commented: "Not for nothing but I really needed the rest of this conversation. I feel like I'm missing out."
Even a certain Captain America was impressed, as actor Chris Evans tweeted the footage with the caption: "I could've watched an hour of this."
Us too, Cap, us too.
