We all know toddlers, when they want to do something – they will do it! And if doing that “something” gets them into trouble with either mom or dad, they always have an escape plan.
It’s either they’d throw a tantrum or they will tell you they didn’t do it – even if they’re already caught “red-handed”.
You will never win an argument against a kid, they have all the silly reasons in the world – simply because they don’t want to be scolded or punished.
When a kid’s caught in the act of doing something that they’re not supposed to do, they do one thing, and one funny thing alone.
Deny, deny, deny!
This viral video of a family from Jacksonville, Florida will show us all how hilariously silly a kid can be when giving reasons during an interrogation.
In the short clip, 21-month-old Lilyana threw an absolute fit over something you would never expect — dog food! Did she or did she touch the dog food? That was the question of the day.
It usually takes many years for a kid to fully develop complex language skills, but that didn’t stop Lilyana from defending herself.
Her strategy was simply to deny over and over again that she touched it. There was just one problem… her parents Sarah and Tim actually saw her do it.
“The argument started because earlier when I was doing dishes, Lilyana came over and almost touched a sharp knife so my husband told her not to touch it and she said she didn’t touch it,” Sarah explained to the Daily Mail.
To show her deep disagreement, Lilyana started touching other things that she’s not supposed to be touching.
Pretty soon, she went over and started grabbing the dog’s food out of his bowl. That’s when the main disagreement featured in the video began.
Her mom, Sarah, immediately called her out on it.
However, Lilyana was not about to admit guilt so easily, at least not without putting up a fight. Her goal was to deny any involvement until the end of time. As long as she didn’t give in, she would win the debate.
Her mom asked her if she touched the dog food again and her response back was loud and clear- according to her, she definitely didn’t.
“No, I did not touch the food,” Lilyana screams back.
This cute girl’s strong will to deny the “crime” is one of the most adorable little fits that you’ll ever see on the internet.
Lilyana stuck to her guns and refused to give in. She continued to deny any wrong-doing repeatedly for close to two minutes.
“What 21-month-old doesn’t try? She figured out that we were teasing her and she was being funny so she kept it going on that she didn’t touch the food,” said Sarah.
It didn’t matter how many times her mom told her that she saw her do it, Lilyana was not interested in backing down.
And yes, finally, dad joined the argument.
He bent down to get on her level and reaffirmed that, yes, he saw her touch the food too. He was even able to recall some crucial details about the crime — she did it with her right hand.
However, Lilyana turned blind and deaf about what dad saw or said. She didn’t care at all, what a kid!
In her mind, she was completely innocent. All Sarah and Tim could do was laugh at how ridiculous their daughter was being.
Towards the end of the video, they’re all laughing out loud, even Lilyana was flashing a little smirk right there.
Deep down, she knew she wasn’t as innocent as she was portraying. Her anger at being called out was all just a hilarious front.
Well, it’s not just a petty reason why they called her out for touching the dog’s food.
Not only are kids at that age liable to eat pet food, but they can also make a big mess. We can totally understand why Lilyana’s parents wouldn’t like it. That food is supposed to be for the dog and not anyone else.
Lilyana’s parents just want to teach their little girl a lesson. Another thing is that they want Lilyana to learn how to take responsibility for her actions. You know what they say, start them young, and that’s what Sarah and Tim are trying to do.
Although having an argument with Lilyana is a hopeless battle for them, they’re definitely doing a great job as parents. And for Lilyana, she’s doing an excellent job of denying things, and of course, in making the entire world laugh.
Watch the video below to see how Lilyana hilariously denies her parents’ accusations.
