After Mazzy got tired of the surprise egg videos and the Russian woman who plays with the Frozen dolls, she moved on to kids who make their own YouTube videos. She is particularly obsessed with Seven Super Girls and Seven Awesome Kids, which I’ve watched a few times and they seem harmless enough. I like that they show Mazzy that even a little kid can film and create their own stories.
But… if you let your kid watch kids who make their own YouTube videos, be forewarned. You can almost guarantee that at some point your kid will want to make one too.
Case in point, one day last week, Mazzy did the cookie challenge at her camp. I have never heard of the cookie challenge but apparently this is something that people also do on YouTube.
“Mom! I want to make a YouTube video doing the cookie challenge!”
It was late Wednesday night and Mazzy was Harlow had just gotten out of the bath. “Right now?”
“YES! Are you ready, Mom? Start filming!!!”
Let me just say that the next few minutes were some of the funniest of my life. Mazzy and Harlow used every YouTube Star catchphrase in the book and a few of their own that didn’t even really make sense. I almost peed in my pants trying to keep the camera still while I choked on my own laughter.
I highly recommend watching the entire thing.

Mazzy and Harlow….5 second rule! So adorable!
That was too funny! So cute.
This is so cute! You can tell they had a lot of fun with that.
I love listening to Harlow talk she has that cute little voice. She reminds me of an elf.
So much fun.
LOL!!!! No wait, more like LMAO!!!!! OK, Mazzy is like practically a teenager now. So darn smart and funny and gorgeous as ever. And Harlow!!!! The voice! The hands!!!! She has very important things to say, but how can you pay attention when all you hear is that adorable squeaky voice???!!!! It’s like hearing a grown up talk with a munchkin voice. Seriously. OMG.
i just died. That was the funniest thing. “Count on me! Count on us!” Too hilarious. I don’t know how your laughter wasn’t audible the whole time.
OMG that was too cute!! And kind of scary, right? What will they be doing when they are adults? Maybe making a YouTube channel about their aging, senile parents. ;-P
And OMG the surprise egg videos! I have no idea how Dylan even found them! One day I played a Taylor Swift video to try and halt a 45 minute tantrum and it worked, but then before I knew it, he was watching something called Baby Big Mouth having a surprise party and opening endless surprise eggs. He got so obsessed with “watching eggs” as he called it, that we had to just take away the tablet for good (it didn’t help that Jackson would try to take it from him too, ending up in more screaming, and we were not buying another iPad, I’m sorry.) We told Dylan that “NiNi” (Joe’s mom, who we don’t see very often) took the iPad. Poor NiNi. We blame everything on her. lol.
Congrats to Mazzy and Harlow on their YouTube channel! Are you going to start hanging up a sheet in the background and adding effects to the videos (flashing words, etc.?) lol, j/k. Unless you really are going to do that, in which case I say right on.
Sooooo funny! And amazingly cute!
They are so cute, that I had to subscribe even though I don’t spend much time on YouTube. I don’t even think I’m subscribed to any other subscribers. LOL! So, they are the first. ?
Whenever I need a good laugh- this is it!
Crying with laughter – I don’t know how you managed to hold the camera steady! I don’t know what made me snort more – Mazzy trying to start the challenge and Harlow continually interrupting to explain just one more point, or Harlow grabbing the cookie off Mazzy’s foot and going to eat it. Hysterical.
This was awesome–you can totally tell what they’ve picked up from watching other videos. For a first attempt they did a great job, and of course the cookie challenge itself was hilarious. Great Job Mazzy & Harlow!! Let me know when you’re next video comes out!
This was hilarious and adorable! Mazzy is so grown up and Harlow is so expressive!!! I would never have been able to control my laughter.
Also, how do you still have Girl Scout cookies left!?!? Those things barely last a week in my house!
[…] Mazzy and Harlow filmed their cookie challenge a few weeks back with Thin Mints, many of you remarked on how crazy it was that we still had Girl […]
