A Couple of Videos and Fewer Posts of the Week

As you might know, I was away from home for a few days last week and I haven't had much time to play catch up with your blogs since my return. Therefore, there are fewer posts than usual in this week's picks. I thought I'd top up the post with a couple of video which I find amusing. Each of them features a very bright child. You may have seen them before but I'll bet you'll still enjoy them today.

The first one is of a little girl... a really early "talker." The usual comment accompanying this video is "Are Women Born This Way?" This one sure was.

I love this little guy - another good communicator. He cracks me up several times in this short video. I think you'll be loving him too by the time you're done watching.

And now, without further delay, here are this week's Posts of the Week:

The icon to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks. I've decided to start mixing up the colours each week. Take whichever one appeals to you. You'll find others in past posts.

This week's top post goes to:

Hilary, I have seen the first video in the past but the 2nd was new to me. What a smart little guy. Such a talker. It brought back to me the mischief kids can get into that just make you laugh.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and your nice comment.

Steve Gravano said...

Those videos are so funny! I know a few adults that speak the same way as the little girl in the first video.

Joanne said...

Can you imagine what that little girl would have to say if she had her own blog? Amazing posts ;)

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

I am official thrilled to be the mother of only boys. Whew! Could that little girl gab or what?! Amazing. And yes, I want that little boy to be my grandson or my neighbor. "Thank you for saving me." LOL

Congrats to the winners of this weeks POTW!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Aww, thank you Hilary! It's an honour to be listed here. Congrats everyone.
Those videos were a crack up "Thanks for saving me", classic!

Daryl said...

I am not sure I wouldnt have muzzled that little girl .. the little boy was a hoot .. I loved his mother commenting on her laughing ...

And always excellent choices of blog reads!

Thank you for taking the time to visit all the blogs you do...

Land of shimp said...

Thanks, as always, for the fun posts, Hilary! I hope you had a nice time away :-)

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Hilary: Really cute videos on the kids. Thanks for including my site on the POTW.

Frank Baron said...

Have seen both vids but they're worth a re-visit.

That little girl reminds me of you on the phone.


Joanna Jenkins said...

This was a triple header for me. First a million thanks for the POTW honor. For a girls whose been feel blue, this really cheered me up. So many of your readers have stopped by and commented. Thanks, you, thank you.

Second-- Phew! That little girl is one serious talker. What a hoot! But I feel like her parents should show this to the guy who asks for her hand in marriage so he knows what he's getting into!

And third, that sweet-faced kid behind the sofa! It was worth watching all the way to the end for the last comment :-) Great stuff!

Glad your back. Hope you enjoyed your trip.
Thanks again,

maddie said...

Thanks Hilary, much appreciated. I am going to place your award on my blog right now. x

CiCi said...

Maggie May said...

Nuts in May

Ed Pilolla said...

very funny:) great idea.

Hilary said...

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and for supporting the POTW bloggers. I'm glad you enjoyed the kidlets in the video. One of the lines that cracked me up was the little guy's diversion tactic "Help, I'm sinking!" and the "Thank you for saving me."

Joanna, I'm so glad to hear that. :)

And Frank.. I'm frowning at you.. silently. ;)

Dave said...

That little girl will make good in the stock exchange. I thought the little boy spoke very well for his age. Wow! - Dave

Cheryl Kohan said...

Oh how funny! I've seen the first video but not the second. I love how he said, "Thanks for saving me." What a riot. Congratulations to all the new looking forward to reading all of them.
