Kid's Say the Funniest Things

You Never Know What They Will Say or Do

Kids can make you laugh or cry. Sometimes they leave you speechless. Here are a couple of my family stories that will tickle your funnybone!


My youngest son discovered germs either in the fourth or fifth grade. I never heard exactly how this was described to the students but one thing is for certain, that teacher made a lasting impact! As soon as he came in the front door my son told me all about it! "Mom, did you know there are germs on everything? No, really, Mom! They are little bugs you can't see and they are all over the food and the plates and the forks...everything! From that moment I never had trouble getting him to keep his food and drinks to himself. No sharing the glass! No eating from someone's plate. No touching anything at all once it was on his plate! Not a chip, not a french fry, nada!

And let me tell you this was not a short term commitment. That young man is now thirty-one years old and his aversion to germs is legendary! There were times he would not let anyone stand too close because of the germs! He was married three years ago and his wife soon learned about his aversion to these little creatures! There was a celebration when he accepted a chip from her plate! What a day!


The Music Teacher

My middle son had a talent for music as soon as he was born. He sang, danced and played every instrument he could find. He started with the French Horn as a ten year old but soon progressed to the tuba, and oboe. When he was eighteen he taught himself to play the guitar and this began his musical adventure aux serieux! When he took up the steel drum he found the love of his life. My head was soon filled with words like parrot head, island music, etc. He became a music teacher after college and eventually made the attempt to teach his daughter the piano! This child had been sitting at the piano from the age of three years and it was clear she would follow in her father's footsteps.

On the fateful morning in our story my granddaughter managed to take the wind out of her father's sails nicely. He was trying to teach her something very basic on the piano and she was resisting. After this battle went on for some time he called me into the dining room to try to talk to Brittany about the lesson. I foolishly made the mistake of puffing up her father's teaching skills to Brit! "You know Brit, your daddy is a teacher in a school. He does this all the time."

Her limpid blue eyes raised to mine and without a blink, she said, "Well, he's not a very good one!" I promptly withdrew. Nothing I could say would top that one!

i got one, you know those little fly strips you hang to catch the bugs? My six year old daughter, she was getting tucked in and she looked at the fly paper and says real sleepy like, "the flies have a bed too.."

I'm like "what"

"The flies have a bed too.. they fly on the paper, sleep an in the morning fly off.."

I just gave her a hug, kissed her on the head and said

"Sweet Dreams my little one"

Hi Smireles, these stories are really funny. I'm also really impressed by those who have taught themselves to play guitar. I have thought of giving that a try. Thanks for sharing.
