Parents know the most important rule: if your kids are too quiet, they’re up to something.
Children need just a couple of minutes to turn the house upside down. Don’t leave them out of sight, or else you’ll catch them red-handed and it will be too late.
Ryder and Sawyer can show you what we mean.
Their father was out of home, and toddlers used that time wisely. Parents caught the dipped-in paint upon returning. Wait to hear their excuses. Silly babies!
Cris DiMario, a proud father of two little devils, had a hard time recognizing his boys underneath all the red, blue, and green layers.
According to Mr. DiMario from San Diego, California, kids found his art supplies and didn’t hesitate to become artists. You can see two colorful boys hiding in the shower as the video begins. It soon becomes clear that their daddy is behind the camera. “Whose idea was this?”
The little fellows are completely silent after dad’s first question.
They decided to defend in silence. Nodding and finger-pointing give them away, though. They didn’t want to reveal who came up with a brilliant plan to splash the paint everywhere. However, the older boy quickly blamed his younger brother when his father asked who got the paint out. “How did he get it out?” asked Cris. “He made stairs, daddy,” explained the older one.
When asked why he let his younger sibling make the mess, the older one put on his poker face.
“Why did you let him do it? Who’s the big brother?” Cris made a perfect point, and that’s when the older boy knew he wouldn’t get away easily with the circus they made. “You’ve got paint everywhere,” continues Cris, trying to be strict in a tremendously funny situation.
Then goes the hilarious question: “In my hair, daddy?”
DiMario couldn’t play the role anymore, and he burst out laughing. Dad is trying to punish them, but their cuteness makes it a lot harder than it seems.
Monkey see, monkey do is the funniest part of the video.
Amazingly, the little one is copying everything his older brother says or does. When dad asks something, the younger boy first looks at his brother, then copies the reaction.
It seems to us that the older one is well aware of his influence, and he’s using it a lot.
When Cris asks who will clean all the mess, the younger one says that he won’t. His older brother then points the finger at him, and little Sawyer agrees to clean. At least, neither of them seems to be spoiled. They know the punish will be equal.
Mrs. DiMario sent an email to BuzzFeed, explaining that she’s happy “to see that people see the humor in this and that so many were able to reminisce and relate.”
This real-life Dennis the Menace episode has hot more than four million views on YouTube. Ryder and Sawyer became superstars of making a mess almost a decade ago.
Today, they are teenagers interested in baseball and proud older brothers to a lovely young lady.
Kids will be kids. On the one hand, kids who start doing chores at an early age are more likely to adopt responsible behavior quickly. On the other hand, every child has his own developmental pace.
The most important thing is to stay calm and collected when things go wrong.
Such an attitude strengthens the bond between you and your kid. DiMario’s family’s been doing it right all this time. Take care, and we can’t wait to cover a story of your baseball success.
