cute kids tiktok

Zeth "called" his daughter Saylor as Goofy and blew her 3-year-old mind.

Few things in this life are more universally delightful than having a conversation with a 3-year-old. You never know what they're going to say, what they say is usually hilarious and even if what they say is nothing special, the way they say it is too-freaking-cute. I can't count the number of times I wished I'd had a camera on my kids at all times when they were tiny so I could capture the near-constant daily adorableness.

Speaking of adorableness, meet 3-year-old Saylor and her dad Zeth, who are entertaining millions with their conversations on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. It's really just a dad and his daughter chillin' together with a couple of microphones, shooting the breeze and doing little activities together. It doesn't sound like much, but their sweet, wholesome interactions have garnered them 10 million followers on TikTok alone.

When you see their videos, you'll see why.


Like many kids her age, Saylor loves Disney characters. Here's a brief clip showing how she likes to pretend to have them on the phone:

Got the whole Mickey Mouse clubhouse coming over

But little Saylor had her mind completely blown when Zeth left her with a walkie-talkie and then called her from outside the room to talk to Goofy. I dare you not to smile watching this. (Hold onto your ovaries if you have them, folks. I'm serious.)

I don’t know if we can top this reaction 😂

Her hyperventilating excitement, though. Too cute, right? And the "And he answered!" at the end. I love how kids this age mix things that really happened with things that they think happened, as well as things they totally imagined happening. The lines between reality and fantasy are so blurry at age 3, and having dad play along with that sense of wonderment is just awesome.

According to NBC 7 San Diego, Zeth has been a content creator for about 10 years, but most of it revolved around his love of extreme sports. When he bought some podcasting equipment, Saylor helped him break it in, and when he looked at the footage later, Zeth realized they were onto something. Now he gets to live the dream of sharing his preschooler's cuteness with the world.

Zeth said that they'll continue making videos together until it's not fun for Saylor any longer, but for now they're both clearly having a blast. And millions of us are having a blast watching right along with them.

OK, one more for good measure. Guaranteed, you don't see the last line coming.

Meet the newest member of our family, Sassy Bassy.

Moricz was banned from speaking up about LGBTQ topics. He found a brilliant workaround.

Senior class president Zander Moricz was given a fair warning: If he used his graduation speech to criticize the “Don’t Say Gay” law, then his microphone would be shut off immediately.

Moricz had been receiving a lot of attention for his LGBTQ activism prior to the ceremony. Moricz, an openly gay student at Pine View School for the Gifted in Florida, also organized student walkouts in protest and is the youngest public plaintiff in the state suing over the law formally known as the Parental Rights in Education law, which prohibits the discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity in grades K-3.

Though well beyond third grade, Moricz nevertheless was also banned from speaking up about the law, gender or sexuality. The 18-year-old tweeted, “I am the first openly-gay Class President in my school’s history–this censorship seems to show that they want me to be the last.”

However, during his speech, Moricz still delivered a powerful message about identity. Even if he did have to use a clever metaphor to do it.

Matthew McConaughey in 2019.

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey made a heartfelt plea for Americans to “do better” on Tuesday after a gunman murdered 19 children and 2 adults at Robb Elementary School in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas.

Uvalde is a small town of about 16,000 residents approximately 85 miles west of San Antonio. The actor grew up in Uvalde until he was 11 years old when his family moved to Longview, 430 miles away.

The suspected murderer, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, was killed by law enforcement at the scene of the crime. Before the rampage, Ramos allegedly shot his grandmother after a disagreement.

“As you all are aware there was another mass shooting today, this time in my home town of Uvalde, Texas,” McConaughey wrote in a statement shared on Twitter. “Once again, we have tragically proven that we are failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us.”

Meet Eva, the hero dog who risked her life saving her owner from a mountain lion

A sweet face and fierce loyalty: Belgian Malinois defends owner.

The Belgian Malinois is a special breed of dog. It's highly intelligent, extremely athletic and needs a ton of interaction. While these attributes make the Belgian Malinois the perfect dog for police and military work, they can be a bit of a handful as a typical pet.

As Belgian Malinois owner Erin Wilson jokingly told NPR, they’re basically "a German shepherd on steroids or crack or cocaine.”

It was her Malinois Eva’s natural drive, however, that ended up saving Wilson’s life.

According to a news release from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Wilson had been walking down a path with Eva slightly ahead of her when a mountain lion suddenly appeared and swiped Wilson across the left shoulder. She quickly yelled Eva’s name and the dog’s instincts kicked in immediately. Eva rushed in to defend her owner.

It wasn’t long, though, before the mountain lion won the upper hand, much to Wilson’s horror.

She told TODAY, “They fought for a couple seconds, and then I heard her start crying. That’s when the cat latched on to her skull.”
