A hockey dad in Canada mic’d up his four-year-old son to understand “what the heck he was doing out there” during practice sessions on the rink, and the results are adorable.

Jeremy Rupke of Northern Ontario, known on YouTube as “Coach Jeremy,” attached the microphone before a recent Timbits Hockey training routine, and he has really tapped into the mind of his boy, Mason.

During the session, Mason can be seen rolling around on the ice, colliding with other kids, and engaging in a sword fight with a friend using their hockey sticks.

He is also heard saying things like: “I’m gonna have a nap,” “I need to go pee,” and “are we gonna go McDonald’s after?”
