How To Teach a Newborn Baby to Do a Somersault


Quick question: What’s more annoying than my mom? That’s Easy! It’s that brand new mother my mom insists on being friends with.

I dare you to stomach it: Watching a grown woman going ape shit over every freakin’ thing a babbling freakshow can manage to do — and it ain’t much.  If I have to hear one more time about how cute tiny baby’s feet are I’m going to shove my head in my Easy-Bake Oven.

Anywho, here’s a video of me trying to help one of these nervous-nelly parents teach their newborn how to do a somersault. I’ll call the mom, “Kristen” and her baby, “The Slobbering Thing That Comes Over and Messes Up My Shit.” (BTW I predict that name will pass Emma in popularity in 2011).

  1. A great lesson indeed. Question: Is it imperative to play Lady Gaga whilst turning over your baby?

  2. I like you. Please come teach my Imaginext Batman tricks, too.

    In Maine.


  3. You should teach gymnastics full time, Lily. Maddie has been wanting lessons and I think she would totally subscribe to your method.

  4. Lyra says can you come and teach her to back flip. Mummy no longer gets suitably stressed when she climbs on and off the sofa but if she BACKFLIPPED that would freak the hell out of her…

  5. another hilarious post. keep it up
