Ah, toddlers. They are that magical age in which they transform from a helpless, squirmy little poop-machine to a sassy, curious almost-kid with endless energy. It is the perfect time to teach a child parent-approved games like that ol' classic, hide-and-seek.

La Guardia Cross, who has a YouTube series called "The New Father Chronicles" that stars himself and his daughters, 2-year-old Amalah and her newborn sister Nayley, decided it was time to teach his eldest the time-tested game. There is only one problem: toddlers are on their own agenda, and everything Cross tried to teach his daughter went in one ear and out the other.


This technically may be a "hide-and-seek fail," but at least it's a darn cute one.

Check out the video below:

So Amalah didn't quite grasp the concepts of hide-and-seek on her first try (primarily the "hide" or "seek" parts), but she has some time to master the art. We have faith in her.

Of course, things took a turn in the video when baby Nayley, surely own her own volition, decides to involve herself in the game, and turns out to be a much better seeker than her big sister.
