"Guilty.... but with an explantion."

"A Russian father and his baby daughter are having a seriously heated discussion.

The little girl most likely only understands a few of the words, and she can’t reproduce them coherently, because she’s a baby. She can, however, reproduce the cadence, emphasis, and body language to an amazing degree, which is adorable. If I understood what she was arguing about, she’d have me convinced."

The baby is saying, look, if you would only speak English we could have an intelligent discussion. But if you insist on continuing in that train-wreck gibberish, we will never get anywhere.

As a father of several daughters, step daughters and nieces (9 in all), I have seen this acted out more times than most. Despite that, it's a great exchange….a God thing, if you will.

She's probably arguing that she's old enough to date. He doesn't know what she's talking about. It goes on like that until they're college age. (We raised 5 daughters, all now grandmother age.)

They both sound the same to me.

I'm going to have my cousin translate it (my Russian is abysmal), but that may spoil the effect.

Why does it make me think of a meeting between Putin and Obama?

It is interesting to watch non-English babies expressing themselves. I worked with a Russian mother and her family, and the baby was learning to ask for things. He kept saying DIE! DIE! And if I hadn't known that he was saying GIMME! GIMME! I would have thought he was cursing me.

What man ever won an argument with a woman, especially one that adorable?

Baby Girl. "More borscht!"

Dad. "No more borscht."

Baby Girl. "Yes, more borscht."

Dad. "What don't you understand about No?"

Baby Girl. "I understand plenty about No, Comrade Pops, but I resist this paternal despotism of yours. I say, Borscht today. Borscht tomorrow. Borscht forever. In sum, borscht."

Dad. "Borscht on YOU, Baby Girl."

Baby Girl. "Oh, yeah! Well, borscht on YOU, Raspizdyay Kolhoznii. Hey, Comrade Mommy. Howz 'bout some borscht to go with the rye bread?"

Comrade Mommy. "Ask your Dad."

Baby Girl. "Nyet. Dubiina."

I've always said, one of the best things about having a daughter is that you finally encounter a female that you can best in an argument.

But then they reach the age of two, and once again ....

Seriously, this is all fun and games now, but wait until that baby turn two. You'll regret getting her started, Tovarish

Hi, it's me again. I did something with this video over at The People Cube. I posted it under the title, "Putin Crimea Gambit Creates Generational Rift in Russia!" Should be good for a couple of laughs

My best guess at what she is saying:

“Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help! I'm being repressed!”
