The kid who’s ‘got it’

Kayden Elijah,2, and his kiddie delight is providing a collective lift for the rest of us, thanks to this video which has swept the InterTubes in the last day or so.

He had to have a foot and leg amputated because he was born with an omphalocele, which leaves organs to grow outside the navel.

His mother posted this video last Friday, to try to raise $50,000 to help defray expenses. As of this morning, she’s up to $28,000.

He got some prosthetics recently. All he had to do was figure out how to use them.

    This is a much better place to put your money than tuber salad.

      In a perfect world, the guy who got an obscene sum for said salad will just give the money to the 2 year old.

        I won’t go that far. There are many, many worthwhile places the salad guy could put his newfound $$. I just hope he does put it somewhere worthwhile.

    I love this kid’s enthusiasm! I got it! With this attitude, he will go places.
