Many people find that raising children is one of life’s greatest joys. Sure, it’s tough, and you’ll experience a whirlwind of emotions through every tantrum and every successful milestone, but most parents would say it’s all worth it in the end.
I’m sure the parents of a toddler by the name of Matty would completely agree with that last statement. Matty is a great joy in both of their lives, and to top it off, he has a great sense of humor. In fact, during a potty-training session back in October of 2019, Mom overheard Dad and Matty having a hilarious conversation. Instantly, the toddler’s mom whipped out the camera to capture the moment on film
Matty, who was sitting on the toilet confidently informed his dad in a humorous voice that he didn’t poop; he peed. “Wait, you didn’t poop?” Daddy asked. Little Matty made sure to inform Dad a few more times to correct his misconception.
Then at one point, Matty’s father puts his head down as he wipes tears from his eyes. Matty gets concerned, asking if his daddy is sad. “No, I’m not. I’m trying so hard to not laugh, I’m crying,” he clarified to his son.
Once Matty was sure that Daddy was okay, he once again assertively announced with a big smile on his face, “I didn’t poop; I peed!” a few more times. In response, his father gave his little guy a high-five. Way to go, Matty!
When the video was initially posted on Facebook by Matty’s Mom, Dani DeVito, the hilarious clip earned over 29,270,000 views! It was also shared over 800,000 times and commented on over 140,000 times.
After watching the video, people commented how adorable and funny Matty was.
“Sooo cute and I think that little boy will actually get a big kick out of it if he sees it when he grows up. We all have one of those moments!” one person said.
I totally agree with that last commenter. Although, I’d be a little embarrassed about it during my pre-teen and teenage years, that’s for sure!
Another user couldn’t help but reflect on how quickly children grow up yet how amazing it must have been to capture such an adorable clip: “Where does the time go. I wish time was slower than it is. What a a moment to cherish.”
I’m sure the DeVito family will be watching that video dozens of times over the next few years. It’s too cute not to!
