If the Academy gave out Oscars to three-year-olds, little Kirsten's herculean efforts to lift her bowl into the sink after dinner would have surely won the 'best performance in a tantrum' category。
A father recorded his toddler's hilariously over-dramatic attempts to pick up her bowl from the floor, despite her claims that it was 'too heavy' for her to lift。
一位父亲拍下了这样非常戏剧化又欢乐的一幕：视频中小女儿多次尝试从地板上捡起碗，不过小姑娘一直在叫嚷着碗 “太重了” 所以拿不起来。
To prove her point, Kirsten groans and strains as if she's trying to hoist a boulder. She never gets it more than an inch off the floor before slamming it down for exaggerated effect。
She does this not once, not twice, but seven times before she finally makes it all the way to the sink -- less than three feet away。
'I can't do it,' she says as she cries and crawls away. 'You can't lift that up?' her father asks, sympathetically. 'Noooooooo!' Kirsten cries. 'Come back and try again, you're almost to the sink,' the patient father says. 'I can't do it, though!'
“我做不到啊！” 小姑娘一边喊叫着一边爬得远远地。“你举不起来碗啊？” 父亲非常同情地问道。“不.。。不.。。不行啊！” 柯尔斯顿嚎叫着。“回来再试试看，你看你就快到水槽啦！” 父亲非常有耐心地说道。“我就是做不到啊！”
After her seventh try, Kirsten finally lifts to bowl, still 'straining' under its weight, takes three steps and shoves it onto the counter next to the sink。
She then falls to the floor, crying, still sticking to her original story that the bowl was impossible for her to move. 'You did it!' her dad says。
The video has attracted enormous popularity since it was posted on YouTube earlier, gaining more than 600,000 views in less than a week. The father comments on the posting: 'And the Oscar goes to...'
One commenter praised his tactics: 'And great job Dad, making her do it anyway. And she got a good lesson that her tantrums don't work. You pick your battles but don't give in. Great job.'
