Adorable toddler's potty talk has daddy crying from laughter

Potty training can test the mettle of even the most patient parent. It’s often one of the more difficult tasks of early parenthood, aside from wrestling wired kids into bed for a nap or nighty-night.

Some kids figure out how to successfully move from big kid diapers to character undies right off the bat. Others need lots of reminders and help.

This rite of passage isn’t for the faint of heart.

Some parents use stickers, charts and incentives to reward their child’s potty training efforts. Dad Greg DeVito has heart-t0-heart chats with his son Matt while the two-year-old spends time on the toilet potty training.

A video of their latest chat in the bathroom has gone viral and people can’t stop cracking up over little Matt’s potty-training antics.

Dani DeVito was recording Matt and Greg chilling in the commode when suddenly, Matt breaks out into this crazy guy routine with a weird voice. She thought it would be hilarious to share it with friends and family on her Facebook page, but it’s since exploded all over the internet much to her surprise.

“I don’t even know how this started. I took the video Tuesday or Wednesday night and uploaded it on Thursday before I went to bed. After I did it, I thought, ‘Oh man, this video is kind of funny. I probably should have waited until the morning.’ Then, on Friday, it just blew up, and my phone has not stopped sending me notifications since then.”

The Oct. 24 video shows Matt sitting on the potty-training toilet ring with his shirt pulled up, striped socks covering his feet. Greg is sitting on the ground in front of him. They’re having a chat about what’s unfolding in the bathroom when Matt hilarious declares in this dark, spooky voice…

“I didn’t poop. I peed.”

Greg is caught off guard by the change in his son’s voice and the new persona he’s suddenly taken on.

“Wait, you didn’t poop?”

“No, I peed.”

“I thought you pooped, too.”

And back comes the crazy-sounding voice…

“I didn’t poop, I peed.”

Greg cannot contain his laughter and starts cracking up. He’s laughing so hard he starts crying. Instantly, Matt is alarmed.

“You sad daddy?”

“No I’m not. I’m trying so hard not to laugh I’m crying. It’s funny. You’re a funny guy.”

Just to make sure he understood Matt’s predicament correctly, Greg asked one more time…

“Did you poop?”

And Matt uses that Darth Vader-sounding voice once more, causing Dad to crack up all over again.

“No I didn’t poop I peed.”

While giggling together, Greg and Matt high five. Dani told the West Virginia News that she nor Greg know why Matt started doing the voice, but they’re glad they caught the moment on camera and shared it with others.

“It was a one-time thing and he was probably saying it for about two minutes before I even got my phone out. We don’t know where the voice came from. We have no idea. He’s just a goofy kid. He says it all the time now because he’s randomly seen the video with us, but it’s not a normal occurrence by any stretch of the imagination.”

Even more surprising to the family is that celebrities like Kristen Bell and Alyssa Milano have shared their bathroom video on social media.

“It’s absolutely unreal. I feel like I’m living somebody else’s life. Every time I think that it’s starting to slow down, something else happens. I think Kristen Bell shared it overnight, and then I was getting screenshots of Alyssa Milano sharing it. Someone saw it on the Weight Watchers app news feed. It’s just unreal.”

Fortunately, two-year-old Matt has no idea that he’s a social media star. He’s just focused on finishing his potty training and entertaining his parents like the comical guy he really is.

“(Matt) has no clue. I tried to tell him that Anna from ‘Frozen’ thinks he’s funny, and he just agreed that he was funny. He’s a funny kid. We’ve got friends and family sort of spread out all over the place, so we use Facebook just like every other parent does, just to share our kid with the world, but we definitely never expected anything close to this happening.”

Watch little Matt in this hilarious potty training video. Kids can be so darn funny! He just might be a stand-up comedian in training.

Need a #MattyG fix? Fear not. I have it. Also, not sure why he was doing this voice… 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤣
