Some days, the fact that our kids make us laugh is the only thing that keeps them alive, I swear. Children don’t always think they’re being funny, and they’re not always doing it on purpose, but that doesn’t really matter – that little burst of laughter can do so much for that tension balled up at the base of your neck.
Here are 10 kids who are experts at making their parents laugh, and luckily, their parents are on Twitter to share it all with us.
10. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Probably a bad thing. Broccoli can be a lot.
"How's that soup Daddy made?"
7yo: "It tastes like broccoli punching me in the face." #brutallyhonest

9. Wow. That’s way harsh.
But still hilarious.
Me: *sings along to radio*
3yo: why don't you let it sing all by itself?

8. Never interrupt.
There’s always more coming.
Son: Mom you look like you're 20 …
Son: … thousand years old.

7. Ugh, typecasting.
She’s gonna make it big in Hollywood one day.
4: Mommy, you're just like a Disney movie. We should play pretend.
Me: Aww! Sure!
4:You can be the Beast.
4: Or the fat sea witch!

6. Bless their little heart.
One day they will cling to those “old” ages.
Me: "Santa's quite old, you know."
4yo: "How old is he? 26? 27?"

5. At least one of you can keep your self esteem.
Poor daddy never has to know.
4: I have little boobs
4: you have big boobs
Me: yes, true
4: daddy has big boobs too
Me: …don’t tell him that

4. Yes, I do.
And now I’m going to teach you.
Me: come here please, I need you to help me clean this up
4: don’t you know how to do it yourself?

3. Don’t bother correcting him.
You’ll just make it worse.
Overheard from the other room:
4: Hey, look at my leg nipples!
6: They’re called knees.
4: Leg nipples!!
4: LEG NIPPLES, LEG NIPPLES!!

2. It’s the question first that does it.
Like, he knows exactly what he’s doing.
6yo: mom, who sings this?
6yo: can you let them sing it
My job here is done he's ready
— Marcy G (@BunAndLeggings) September 2, 2019
1. At least he can read people.
That’ll come in handy when he learns to keep his mouth shut.
5yo: Just one more question before I go to bed.
5yo: What are the lines on your forehead for?
5yo: Now they look angry.

My kids make me laugh every day and I’m so grateful. Because without them, my laughter quotient would be far, far less.
