One of the hardest jobs in the world is to be a parent. Adjusting your life from being a solo human to having to care for someone else can lead to some very interesting situations. But, it’s well worth it when your little ones say things that make you laugh with tears. It’s even better when you share it with the rest of the world. Here are some moms that took to Twitter with things their kids said or did that absolutely made us smile even during the hectic year that we’ve just had!
The love for silence comes with time for most people. Typically kids like to tell stories and embellish, and this could take quite a bit of time. So, when dealing with a small child, you might have to get super used to long strings of sentences.
After a long day at work, you like to come home and chit-chat so don’t expect anything different from your kid. Just know that patience is a virtue.
There are a lot of popular songs out there that have adult language in them that aren’t really appropriate for children. That’s why things like Kidzbop came about so that your kids can enjoy the same music you listen to on a regular basis.
This kid learned the song from listening to it with his parents and now he’s mad that the lyrics aren’t right in the Kidzbop version. Though he definitely needs to be told not to say that word, it’s kind of cute that he was mad it had been censored.
On the Menu
We all have those words that are super hard to pronounce. This is especially true if it’s dealing with a foreign language so why be surprised when a kid pronounces something the wrong way? Sometimes, it’s actually pretty cute!
This waiter deserves an award for not cracking up, though. We don’t think we would have had that much restraint. Either we busted out laughing or had to help correct the poor child, otherwise, it would have been a long ordering process.
Kids are very inquisitive. They want to know how everything works, from why trees grow to how they came about. These sometimes can be pretty awkward conversations but, then again, they can be pretty hilarious as well.
We think this poor kid is gonna be traumatized for a little while after hearing his mom answer his question. Eventually, though, he’ll figure it out. For now, it definitely gave us a good chuckle.
Some people out there just have a superstitious spirit. This means they often have little things that they do to ensure they have a lucky day. This isn’t something that happens only to older people — this teen is a perfect example.
But, it definitely does seem strange to us that this mother seems to be speaking in a very sarcastic way about something her boy does all the time. Though, maybe she’s just simply saying if he does it again, she might go crazy!
Started the Day Off Wrong
Kids can be oddly peculiar and particular about certain things. So, you have to be cautious when you’re doing something you do every day because they may expect it done a certain way. Still, it’s pretty amusing to watch them have a meltdown about something as simple as how they want their pancakes cut.
We can’t even imagine how this woman apologized when she didn’t even realize that she had done something wrong. Maybe she just should have switched the place of pancakes, the person could have solved the whole problem.
It’s inevitable that in school, kids are going to run into other children that they have a problem with — especially in grade school because they’re all forming their own personalities. You, of course, want them to be able to work out their problems in a constructive manner.
We think this girl’s got a pretty constructive answer to having a problem with the boy at school. After all, what doesn’t a rap battle solve?!
Can’t Get Passed the Level
There are many metaphors you can use for life. A lot of people nowadays tend to gravitate towards something they know, like video games. It seems that this is what the mom here is doing, and she’s having a problem with that third level.
Unfortunately, we have to be the ones to break it to her that there are no cheat codes when it comes to parenting. If there was, we’re sure that someone would have said something much sooner.
Do Not Disturb
It can be exciting when you know a delivery is supposed to arrive, but nothing’s worse than the waiting game. The patience that these children and those dogs have is really astounding.
We do have one question, though. Are the dogs waiting with the kids or are they guarding the kids so no one can bother them? Either way, this is adorable and hilarious!
There He Is!
Many kids have imaginary friends that help them get through tough times, especially when they’re only children. Apparently, some of them also have imaginary pets, which is pretty cool.
Looking for them when they can’t be seen seems like an endless game of hide-and-seek. These parents must have the patience of saints! We would never have made it through 15 minutes let alone hours!
Everything Is Off
One of the ways to keep kids quiet nowadays is to hand them a piece of technology and let them play games on it. This keeps them out of your hair and out of things they shouldn’t be getting into.
All we have to say is we hope this woman can speak Spanish and knows how to go back into the settings and fix her phone. As for the pictures, maybe she should save them. These could be worth something in the future as pieces of art.
Working the System
Kids, like some adults, have a bit of a sweet tooth and they will do anything they can to ensure they get their hands on those sugary treats. If the kids are clever, they can game the system and find themselves hitting the motherlode as this little girl did.
This kid is well ahead of her age when it comes to figuring out how to manipulate her parents into getting what she wants. We wonder if maybe she heard her dad say this and learned it was the key to her mother’s heart.
One of the funniest parts of being a kid is when you lose a tooth and get visited by that tooth fairy. After all, as an adult, we would be down to wake up and find cash under our pillow, right?
But, like with everything else, inflation has changed how much is left behind! This kid is taking it a bit too far on that inflation scale, though she does have a valid argument!
Testing it Out
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have something or someone that you could test out your ideas on before you actually did it on yourself? There would be no more bad fashion faux pas or embarrassing haircuts, right?
We’re not sure that it should be your children, though. That seems a little messed up. If we were this mom, we’d be sort of embarrassed that we let our child walk around with something we would never dare to wear ourselves.
Sharing Is Caring
Most kids are very generous when it comes to sharing with their friends. Still, not always do you find one that’s willing to share with their parents, especially when it comes to food. This mom just got lucky, we guess!
There’s nothing like a hot, salty fry to take all the pain away. At least that’s how we feel, and we’re sure many of you understand the sentiment!
Bribery and Flattery
When you’ve done something wrong the first thing you need to think about is how you’re gonna apologize. Some people do it with pretty words, other people do it with gifts. These kids are ahead of the game because they chose to do both.
We’re sure that the heartfelt written apologies would have been enough but throwing in a few bucks doesn’t seem to hurt at all. Though we do wonder where they got the money from!
It’s a very special time in a child’s growing process when they begin to form ideas of their very own. Often, these come from fantastic stories and may not be based in reality, but they can show you where your child is headed in the future.
It’s clear that this kid is on the way to being a matchmaker. After all, who thinks about putting the Easter Bunny and The Tooth Fairy together. This seems like it might be a cute couple, though!
Sleep is a vital part of remaining healthy and mentally alert. For the first several years, many parents go through a phase of not being able to get quite enough sleep. So, when they do catch a few much-needed Z’s, it’s a prized gift.
This kid doesn’t seem to understand that and really just wants to be able to share breakfast with one of their favorite people in the world. This is both cute and annoying… perhaps the most common combination when it comes to younger children.
Remember when your parents used to say you’ll understand when you have kids. Though we may have scoffed at it, we do eventually understand where they’re coming from. Take, for instance, this situation.
The biggest question that we have is why that eight-year-old was up at two in the morning. And why she thought it was going to be OK to text her mom at that hour. If we were her mom, we definitely wouldn’t have answered.
One thing about kids that’s absolutely amazing is their wild imaginations. Because they haven’t been taught that certain things aren’t possible, they think everything is possible and so, they often draw things that are outrageous and tell stories that are bigger than life.
However, we think this one probably should be a little scared because drawing this scary image could be a sign that she’s dealing with a future horror movie writer. And that could lead to some pretty scary future stories she has to sit through.
It’s All Fake
Understanding the difference between reality and what’s on the television screen can be challenging even for some adults. But for kids, because they haven’t quite learned the difference yet, it tends to make for some pretty confusing conversations.
Still, these kids are well ahead of the game. Clearly, they’re pretty logical thinkers, and the fact that they realize this means they need to be challenged a little bit more.
Sometimes, kids have no filter when it comes to things they say in public. This may mean that they spout out things you have told them to keep a secret. They don’t know any better, they just have something to say and know that they need to say it.
We would have loved to see the face of this mom when her kid blurted this out. The explanations she probably began spurting to her fellow parents might just have been as gunny as the words that came from her kid’s mouth.
Keeping it Positive
As we get older, we can become more jaded. Instead of thinking about the glass being half full, we often consider it half empty. But, kids don’t have that filter — they see everything through a new lens and that usually leads to a very positive outlook.
Even so, we agree that it’s probably pretty easy to be so positive when you don’t have any responsibilities to actually worry about. That being said, it’s best if this parent lets her kid have a positive outlook for as long as possible.
Every parent teaches their children that being physically violent is not the way to solve any problems. Sometimes, that means having discussions with them and rewarding them for not doing the negative activity.
But, just like we adults get angry, kids deal with these emotions and feelings too. We love this girl’s honesty and, though we don’t condone her hitting her brother, at least she was honest about it.
Teenagers are in this weird stage of life where they’re not quite adults but not children either. So, sometimes they will say things that seem very adult-like and not understand that they need to read to the room. Period.
The only thing we hope is that this woman explained to her daughter exactly why she was laughing. After all, that kid didn’t pay for that hairbrush right?
As adults, sometimes we end up agreeing to do things that we don’t want to do because we don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. The truth is, it would be easier oftentimes to just say no and explain why you don’t want to do the thing someone is asking you to do.
The beauty of being a kid though is that you haven’t learned to do that yet. We love that this little girl is just so honest about their feelings when it comes to doing a little gardening.
Sometimes, kids pick up phrases throughout their daily life that they don’t understand quite what they mean. In fact, they often think it’s funny to repeat it and use it at the most inopportune times.
We just hope this person didn’t have any drink in their hand or in their mouth when their child asked them this. Because then, we’re sure it would have definitely been a lovely spit take and the glass would definitely be dropping to the floor.
It’s funny how quickly children pick up on things that they’ve been exposed to. From gestures to words, they’re like little sponges and absorb everything they see here. That’s why we think one of the most important things is to be careful what you do and say around your kid.
If you’re not, you could wind up having to deal with a sassy little child who thinks using your favorite comeback is quite funny. Though we have to admit, hearing a five-year-old say this would be pretty funny to us.
Just an Idea
When you’re a parent you never get a day off. Finding time to sleep and enjoy the things you really enjoy is hard because you’re always on the go making sure everybody else is getting to where they’re supposed to be and are being taken care of.
So, though it may seem like a funny idea, we can understand why this woman felt the need to put this out there for the rest of the moms. It could be a solid business idea. You better patent it.
Mom! Come On!
As you grow up, it becomes less and less cool to have your mom hanging around and doting on you. But, when you hit your teen years it becomes a whole different thing, and this is when most kids start to shy away from any type of affection.
All we have to say is at least this was very clear on her intent. Though putting it on her Twitter feed may not have been the best place to really get that message across.
We don’t know about you, but picture day was always super important to us. How many of you had to constantly remind your parents that they needed to pick a package and give you the money to submit it to your teacher?
But, now as an adult, we can definitely see where this parent is coming from. Unless you have a big family, no family has that many wallets. Maybe just 20 would do!
It’s important to teach children how to handle stress. It’s something that many of us were taught and think about how handy it would be right now. However, this kid learned about meditation. It’s a great tool to have in their arsenal.
Why he has to do his meditation with a helmet on, though — that’s the real question! Maybe he’s just trying to shut out the world for a bit.
Eye See You
Kids see the world in a whole different way than we do as adults. Maybe that’s because they haven’t been introduced to how everything works. Or maybe it’s because they choose to see the world with wonder.
Either way, this kid definitely gets marks for being super cute and thoughtful too! After all, sometimes people forget to put their eyes in and that can be quite the problem!
Kids are still very visual learners. This may allow them to associate certain things with emotions or actions. So, this kid clearly has seen something happen when mom is wearing her heels and they weren’t always good.
We wonder what gave them the idea that these were mean shoes. This is a story we have to hear! Maybe she could tweet about that, so we have some reference to this tweet.
We’re sure most parents look forward to the day when they can relieve themselves of some of the household chores and have their children take charge of them. But, we’re also certain that this is only after the kids have been shown how to properly do them.
We think this woman should be pretty proud of her kid for taking the initiative. That’s unless they did something crazy and the sheets came out a whole different color. Then, there should be a discussion.
There are just some kids that love to sing. They’ll make up songs about anything and everything and sing them incessantly. When this first happens, we’re sure it’s cute but after a while, it could probably get on a person’s nerves.
This mom’s method of taking care of the problem seems to be a little childish and clearly, the kid was not in for it. On the bright side, maybe this is a way to make some money. After all, there’s been plenty of mother-daughter duos in the music business, so why not a mother-son duo?
Having a kid that’s off assured and feels like they have an answer to every question is not necessarily a bad thing. However, when they correct you continually, then it can be a problem.
Maybe the question that this person should ask their child is, ‘How are you going to pay the bills this month?’ We bet they won’t have an answer for that!
Kids sometimes, especially when they’re super young, identify things on a very simple basis. Men are dads and women are moms. So, sometimes you might find kids that call certain people these names without understanding the trouble they could be causing.
Though maybe this kid helped the other woman out because this guy’s reaction says that there’s been something going on that could lead to some pretty serious conversations when they get home.
Kids don’t always understand the concept of reusing or recycling. So, that may lead to them using too much of some things and not enough others, which could be annoying if you’re the person cleaning up after them.
Maybe this mom is onto something. She can write a whole book series about teaching kids to stop doing those things that drive parents crazy! We’re sure it would be a big hit and just might solve some problems.
Just a Suggestion
The relationship between siblings goes through waves of emotions. It often starts out very loving. Somewhere in the middle, it becomes quite contentious. Then, eventually, it equals out to love again.
Depending on how old this boy is, we’re sure that this girl is just trying to be helpful. There are times in a young boy’s life where deodorant is not a bad gift at all.
When you’re someone who has never had kids, it might be hard to understand what parenting is like. Though we’re sure depending on the parent you ask, you’ll get a ton of different answers and all of them have one thing in common.
We’re sure any parents reading this tweet took a deep breath and felt like someone really got them. But, if you’re someone who doesn’t have kids, this might just deter you from the whole process!
Can I See Your Credentials?
All parents talk about how important education is to get a good job with their kids. So, it’s not surprising that sometimes the kids flip it around on them and ask exactly how they got their job of being a parent.
This girl is so cute when she talks about getting enough practice. But, the truth is, we don’t care how many hours that mom spent hugging and cradling a doll. It never prepares you for the real thing.
Kids think they can get away with just about anything. Why they think they won’t get caught doing certain things is beyond us but apparently, they have a pretty good idea of how to get out of trouble. They simply use plausible deniability.
However, it doesn’t always work, especially when you sign in with a username like this. This is clearly not an adult that’s been playing games on this phone. And if it is, then it’s time to re-evaluate who you’ve decided to choose as a partner.
How Dare You!
There are just some kids that are super self-sufficient and are happy to be independent. They like to do things by themselves and not have any help even from people they love like their mom.
What’s really great about this little one is that they have already figured out how to calm themselves when having a meltdown. That’s a vital skill they will use very often in the future and hopefully they can maintain it well into adulthood.
There are two types of kids — the ones that react poorly to having an injury and those that take it in stride and are proud to show it off. Though if we were a parent, we might be scared if it was the second one because that might make them a little bit more adventurous and more of a daredevil. It also makes it easier to take care of.
This kid has no fear and that’s a great thing in most scenarios. Though someone should tell him that not everybody in the world is as fearless as he is.
