So much for our tiny babies to learn, to discover, to live. Congratulations on your new arrival and enjoy every bit of your amazing journey as you teach your children about this wonderful and crazy world we live in.
Worth a watch!
You’re awake, you’re awesome, Live Like it!
Kid President: There’s a lot that the kids need to know. A letter to a person on their first day here.
Today over three hundred and sixty thousand babies will be born and you are one of them. Welcome, this is the world. It’s a pretty cool place, there’s lots to see, smell, there’s corn dogs. I’m getting ahead of myself.
There’s just so much to do! Singing, dancing, laughing, laughing is the best. It’s especially great when you laugh milk comes out of your nose but only if you just have milk. Otherwise it’s just gross. Some days gross things will happen. Some days awesome things will happen. Some days you’ll get ice cream. Some days you won’t. Some days your kite will fly high! Some days they get stuck in the tree. It’s just how it is here. There’s plenty reasons to dance, you just gotta look for them.
Don’t worry though, you won’t be doing this alone. You’re going to meet lots of people here. Some of them will be really nice, and some won’t be. It’s not that they can’t be it’s just, maybe they’re just having a bad day. Being a person is hard sometimes. You should give people high fives just for getting out of bed. Oh high fives, I forgot to explain that! How do I explain this, high fives are kind of like hitting someone who is your friend. Uh that’s really bad, just treat everybody like it’s their birthday, even if they don’t deserve it. Because we all mess up sometimes.
The biggest mess up, not forgiving each other’s mess ups. Maybe you’ll be a teacher, maybe you’ll be president! Maybe you’ll cure every disease ever. You might even see the Grand Canyon, swim in the ocean, this is so much! It’s a lot! Try this, take breath, isn’t that amazing? It’s called breathing! You’re going to do it a lot but nobody knows exactly how much, so enjoy it! Pay attention! Take brain pictures! Because amazing things will happen everyday! You’re going to do so much! It’s not about what you do but about who you are and you, you’re awesome! You’re made that way! You were made from love, to be loved, to spread love! Love is always louder no matter what! Even if hate has a bullhorn, love is louder! So let your life be loud! Let’s shout to the world “Things can be better! It’s okay about all the mess-ups!” Corn dogs rule! Sorry I just keep bringing that up.
I don’t think I told you this yet. We’re really glad you’re here. We don’t say that enough to each other here because life gets busy. You’re going to be important and you’re going to do a lot! And you’re going to smell great but don’t get too busy. Remember to let everybody know, you’re glad they’re here. You don’t have to remember all this right now. You’re going to need a pep talk sometimes and that’s okay. For now, remember this, you’re awake, you’re awesome, live like it.
Hey! I’m not only Kid President, I’m also an uncle! We made this for a special little guy named Miles. I’m trying really hard to teach him to be a person. An awesome person! Pass this video along, what do you think the kids need to know? Help me out I’m making a list! Do you make Youtube videos? Make a video! Draw a picture, write about it, tell me and the world!
Everybody has someone younger than them and they should be teaching them awesome stuff. Grown-ups it might be a little scary but it’s true! Kids are living to be people by watching you, for real. Now if you excuse me I got some dancing to do….
If you could tell your baby, just one thing about life, what would it be?
