One of best parts of having kids is all the unexpectedly hilarious thoughts and reactions that form in their brains and, thanks to their lack of a filter, tumble straight out of their mouths. Sure, the gems can sometimes be inappropriate and come at awkward-for-us moments when we can’t actually laugh at them, but that doesn’t make them any less funny.
Lucky for you, these 17 kids aren’t yours. So feel free to go ahead and laugh right away.
#16. “We had a local elementary school decorate paper bags for Earth Day, and I found this one leftover.”
Complete tragedy that this bag wasn’t featured front and center.
#15. “Toddler was asked to feed the cat.”
You’re going to need to be more specific.
#14. RULES ARE RULES, KEN.
#13. “I, too, have a daughter going places.”
Such a proud moment.
#12. “My friend got her daughter’s basketball team pictures today.”
Framers. Every. One.
#11. “When your 3-year-old tells the man at McDonald’s that his pants are falling down.”
He calls ’em like he sees ’em.
#10. “My 11-year-old has started drawing fat, middle-aged Batman at the beach and it’s everything you never knew you needed in life.”
I’m going to need this movie adaptation immediately.
#9. “My daughter has been picking her own clothes and watching her big brother get on the bus.”
This picture is perfection.
#8. “I might need to have a talk with my daughter, but I’m not sure what I’d even say.”
Maybe just save yourself.
#7. “My friend’s son struggling to pick up a book.”
Hey, they can’t all be geniuses.
#6. “This kid was a fart for Halloween.”
First, farts are funny. Second, never squash anyone’s creativity, man.
#5. Welp, we had a good run.
#4. “At five months old my son already has the best school photo ever.”
How will he ever top this?
#3. “My 7-year-old sister loves dinosaurs, but my parents got her a dollhouse for Christmas. This is what I came home to tonight.”
Hey, dinosaurs need homes too.
#2. “My daughter’s Christmas list.”
If you don’t get her a cat after all that, you’ve got no heart.
#1. I’d say call that a parenting win and move on.
I mean…smart kid.
These are almost enough to make me want to have another child. But not quite.
