Radical Toddler

It seems Leo wants to follow in jb's footsteps as a rabble-rouser.  He clearly has been paying attention whenever we attend rallies - evidenced by how lately he has been chanting while he plays.  It's adorable - and I'm pretty impressed with his retention of the words and melodies that we hear at protests.  Some of his favorite chants include:

"Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Corporate greed has got to go!"
"Banks got bailed out! We got sold out!" (today he asked jb, "what 'sold out' means?"  It's unclear if he has any idea what 'bailed out' means...)

But his current favorite is to lead this call and response gem:

"What do we want?"
"When do we want it?"
(x3...or more)
"If we don't get it?"
"Shut it down!"

Check him out in action below:

Our little revolutionary.


  1. That video was so cute it was like literally being kicked in the ovaries with the cutest foot in the universe. I already wanted kids but if I hadn't, that would have convinced me.

  2. Ha! We'll be in trouble when he learns to manipulate the chants for his own agenda. Along the lines of "hey, hey, ho, ho, naptime has got to go!"

  3. I've been reading your blog for awhile, but I hardly ever comment on any of the blogs I read but Oh my, I think I almost died from the cute of that video. Heart meltingly adorable

    That is too cute..

  6. This video was so funny it made me laugh hysterically in the office and everyone sitting around me came round to join in the fun!

    I love this so much it hurts!

  8. Thanks for saying so! I think so, too - but I'm pretty biased. ;)

  9. Always glad when I can contribute to something other than productivity in an office setting ;)

  10. I need to get the rest on video. It really is just too funny.

  11. :) We need to get our L and L together. I'm sure they could each teach each other some things - then they could take over the world with their cuteness.

  12. This age is so much more awesome than I expected. I mean - there is trickiness - but seeing their personality come through so strongly is so cool. I bet you are finding the same with S!
