Give this kid an Oscar! Melodramatic toddler goes viral

There's nothing cuter than viral videos of little kids being adorable, except maybe little kids being crabby. Kathie Lee and Hoda awwww-ed over a three-year-old girl who very dramatically refused to take her dishes to the sink.

Both of the ladies agreed that everybody has an ornery phase (the terrible twos rarely last just that long), and that the dad who shot the video was just the right amount of patient and silly.

KLG admitted that she was a difficult toddler herself — her parents had nicknamed her Sarah Heartburn — because she was as dramatic as Sarah Bernhardt. Her parenting advice? "Sign that baby up for acting classes." What did you think of his parenting style?

Julieanne Smolinski is a contributor. Her childhood tantrums were Tony-nominated.
