Budding legal genius, or in need of a spanking?
From the NY Daily News:
3-year-old Mateo calls his mom by her first name as he argues that cupcakes are acceptable dinner food in a funny viral video. ‘Linda, honey,’ he says during the debate.
Three-year-old Mateo wanted cupcakes for dinner, and he wasn’t taking no for an answer.
In an adorable viral video, the tot pulls out all the stops as he makes his case — he doesn’t need to eat dinner because he already ate lunch. Therefore, he should be able to have the hidden cupcakes he found at his grandma’s house.
Mateo asked his mom, who said he couldn’t have the sweets until after he ate dinner. He then turned his attention to Gramma.
But Linda Beltran caught him trying to go behind her back and scolded him. Mateo tried to plead his case and Beltran recorded her son’s spunky response. The result was a hilarious video that has been viewed almost 370,000 times since Feb. 19.
