Funny Kids Make Us Laugh

Updated on March 19, 2012

Why the world needs children

Have you ever been in a room full of adults, and found yourself brainstorming reasons to leave a drab conversation? Add a kid to the discussion, and life is sure to get interesting. Kids have a special way of quickly becoming the center of attention, and brightening the day. They do not come without demands, but the world would be a sad and lonely place without the joy only children can bring.

There is something about their innocence we admire, and long to recall. They remind us to slow down, and smell the roses. They can melt our hearts with one sweet smile, or frown. They become the reason we want to do our best, then do better. They are magical little beings who possess the power to wrap you around their little finger, get a grown man to talk in a little voice, sit in a tiny chair next to dolls and teddy bears sipping imaginary tea, and make us cry like babies when they are born, move away to college, or get married.

Giggles and Laughs

Kids have the funniest outlook on life. They seem to catch us off guard with their pure and honest views of people and life in general. They may hold the secret to living a long and happy life.

Bricks and mortar make a house, but the laughter of children make a home -Irish Proverb

Here are some funny things I have heard children say and do;

-When I was in first grade my mom put my hair up in two piggy tales (as we called it). I was upset, and told her it made me look like a baby. She told me I needed to look nice for picture day, and not to take them out. I remember standing in the picture line waiting my turn. I noticed a nice little old lady with a box of combs helping fix peoples hair. I decided to pull out the elastics that held my piggy tales and let her comb it straight. When she approached me I remember her hesitantly saying "Oh my! Your hair is very beautiful." I thought it was too. When I got home my mom asked me if I had taken my piggy tales out before or after the pictures. I told her I took them out after. I didn't realize that she would be getting the pictures later. This is a choice I still have to live with. My horrible hair-do captured in a photo is punishment for life.

-When I was a kid, my baby brother embarrassed my mother in the grocery store when he said to a lady in line next to us " Hey lady, you know what? We have croch croachers at our house." (I hope she noticed the can of Roach Killer in the cart.)

-When we told my six year old baby sister she was going to be an aunt, within seconds she had burst into tears. We asked her why she was sad and she replied, "I'm scared to be a Ant, people could step on me."

-One afternoon I was trying to get my 3 year old son to take a nap. I laid down next to him, and soon I fell asleep. When I opened my eyes his little face was in mine and he ordered me very sternly "Go to sleep." I woke up laughing that he was the one trying to get me to take the nap!

-I was awoken in the middle of the night by my crying 6 year old daughter standing at my bedroom door. When I asked her why she was crying she said "I peed." I asked "you peed in your bed?" (I was very surprised because she had never been a bed wetter) She said "No, I peed on the toilet." I told her it was a good thing that she peed on the toilet. She got very frustrated with me, then took me into the bathroom and pointed to the toilet. To my surprise the toilet lid was closed. She had peed on top of the toilet, and pee had ran down the potty and covered the floor. What a great way to start the day!

-My three year old little boy wanted to help me make peanut butter cookies. I helped him wash his hands before we mixed the ingredients and rolled the dough into balls. We put the cookies in the oven, and waited for them to bake. When we were ready to roll more dough I told him he needed to wash his hands again- With a puzzled look on his face he looked at me and held his hands up and said " I already did wash my hands". I explained that he left the counter to go play and that he needed to wash them again. He looked at me, shrugged his little shoulders and asked " My feet too?"

-One night, I caught my two little boys running from the kitchen as fast as they could to get back to their beds. I turned on their bedroom light and they were pretending to be asleep. I asked them if they had been in kitchen, and they denied it. Little did they know, the chocolate ice cream they had eaten (with their fingers) spelt out "Liars" all over their little faces.

-My five year old son came in the house from playing in the snow and said " I'm frozen salad out there!"

-I made lunch for my two little boys, and the neighbor girl I was tending. I promised to take them outside to jump on the trampoline as soon as they ate their lunch. When they finished, I told them to wash their faces and hands so we could go outside to play. As the three children were jumping and having a good time, I noticed my four year old laughing and running in a circle. My six year old said "Mom a bumble bee is chasing him." I told them to all get down off the tramp, and before they could, the bee had landed on his sticky face and began stinging him. I was very pregnant at the time and could not get up on tramp very quickly. I told my six year old to swat the bee off his brothers face. He instinctively picked up the neighbor girl's baby doll and smacked my four year old in the face with it, removing the bee from the equation. My son was scared to play outside for a few weeks. The only good that came from this traumatic experience is now he asks me if his face is clean everyday.
