Kids say/do the craziest and funniest and most unexpected things....

Okay, so I LOVE kids. This is a good thing, and probably a very expected thing, considering I have 2 of my own and do daycare. Now, we all know kids of all ages can do and say some very crazy, funny, and unexpected things... sometimes out of nowhere it seems. For instance... my almost 3 year old son has this little stuffed moose that he's been carrying around with him everywhere lately and putting a diaper on it and calling it his "baby moose". Well yesterday, he comes up to me with his moose in hand and says, "mommy, moose poop. I change him. You need wash him in washer with clothes." I was like... where the heck did that come from?! And of course... I couldn't help but laugh. As well, I don't know if who all watches it or has seen it or heard of it or what not... but myself and my brothers watch this show called NCIS. We have a tendancy to record it(the wonderful world of DVR's) so that we can watch it later considering usually we're watching cartoons and children shows with the babies and kids. A lot of the time we watch our shows... including NCIS at night after the kids are in bed, but quite often as well, if the kids aren't paying attention *we think* to the tv and they're busy playing... we'll push play and watch it while we have the chance right then. ... Well, if you've ever seen NCIS, you might notice that the head agent, boss, whatever you want to call him... Agent Gibbs, has a tendency to smack his agents in the back of their heads quite often. I guess as a way of saying "don't be dumb" or something. Recently, though, I've come to notice that whenever one of the other babies or kids does something that they shouldn't or something that might be considered "dumb" to another child... my 2 year old nephew walks up and smacks the baby or kid in the back of the head. And considering none of us adults or the older kids do it around here(though perhaps me may want to at times)... I can't see where my nephew would have gotten that from other than NCIS. So, I enjoy reading stories about the crazy or funny or unexpected things kids do. So share your stories. I'd love to hear/read about them! I know there has got to be tons of people/parents on here with tons of these kinds of stories... as I could come up with at least a dozen right off the top of my head at this moment from my own kids and nieces and nephews. So, share, please... I'd love to read them.

Hi, I am Surya and I am a school teacher. Now I am teaching in high school but previously I have been teaching in primary classes.My experience with small children though very less has been one of the most enjoyable one. It is their innocense that sets them apart. What ever they do they do it earnestly. Everything the kids do is always good.There is nothing that can be called wrong because according to what they know it will be correct! To look at a kid is like looking at the sun, the smile light up the day for you. All the kids are smart according to their capabilities. All the nine types of intelligence will not be present in the same individual in the same measures, it varies within the individual as well as among individuals. This small kid whom I will always remember one day came wearing his sisters clothes!When asked about this to his anguished mother she said that his sister had got a new dress yesterday and he also wanted a new dress. As the parents could not afford it the sister gave her dress to him which he accepted happily! It took some time to make him understand that it is odd to wear girls' dress by boys. The boy was very earnest in his logical reasoning.

That is too funny! And I'll bet he did have good logic for it! At least for that age... how can a person argue(haha)? Your story actually reminds me of a little boy I know. He is the step son to an old family friend of ours. He's decided he wants to be a hula dancer when he grows up, but considering they don't have any hula skirts at home... he walks around in his sisters dress skirts and what not swaying his hips. It's quite entertaining. However, if he see's you laughing he'll speak up and tell you that it is a serious matter and he is pursuing his career choice. hahaha

One of the stories I can recall is when I was walking back from town with my 12 year old daughter and my 8 year old son. There was two policeman knocking on a door and the woman at the door directed them across the road. As they came down the grass bank and crossed the road my son looked at them both and said "Mum why do those policeman both have bald heads. It was just so funny the way he just came out with it. But he was right they were both bald. You can guarantee that children always tell the truth. Then another time when I asked my 3 year old why he put the toilet rolls down the toilet he said it was because the toilet needed feeding. So he now calls toilet rolls toilet food.

Hahaha, yea, kids always are honest. Brutally at times, though they don't know it(lol). Thanks for the post!

When my daughter was two and her baby brother would cry she would ask me if we could take him back to the hospital and exchange him. My kids love "slap" stick humor. Our daughter will "walk into" something solid and smear her face down the surface. Then she'll say "I'm okay" in a tone that MAKES you laugh. My son will run into things and go "oh" or he'll hit them and fall on his bottom. He hasn't got the humor down like his big sister though. When I ask if she would like to be a comedian and tell jokes she says no she's afraid everyone will laugh at her. That's funny.

That is very funny. I'm not sure what it is with kids and doing that. My sister and I were quite worried about my oldest son when he was really young(he still is.. he's only 3.. but I mean even younger). Before he could even walk or stand on his own he'd grab onto the side of his play pen or whatever else he was near and pull himself up and jump into the air.. sprawl out flat and land face first on the bottom of the play pen or the ground. I mean, have you ever been to a concert or seen one on tv where people will jump off the stage face first into the crowd and get passed around by the crowd? That's the kind of jumping and landing he was doing... except rather than people.. the ground was there to catch him. As well he would throw himself backwards and hit his head against the back of the high chair or whatever. In both instances... he would bust up laughing right after. In fact, my son got a broken nose from my 2 year old nephew probably about a year ago because of these types of things. My nephew at the time was 1 and my son was 2. My nephew was at that time into throwing himself backwards *all* the time and laughing. Well once, Grandma was holding my nephew and my son was sitting behind my nephew and next to Grandma. My son went to give my nephew a hug from behind and just as he did so, my nephew not knowingly, threw himself backwards and bashed his head into my baby's nose. It was quite scary and upsetting at that time, but after getting him to the hospital and getting it all taken care of and knowing he was okay... well how can you not laugh later at a thing like that? Not the broken nose part... but the innocence of a hug and a crazy baby lol. Kids definitely have a weird sense of humor... but perhaps we adults do as well(?) lol

Throwing themselves would have made me laugh unless I thought they were going to get hurt. These are great stories.

Where do I begin?? My 16-month-old calls everything that is not human "dog-dog". She now has a 7-week old brother who she calls "dog-dog". He doesn't look like a person to her, so he MUST be a dog-dog. LOL. When my now 12-year-old was about 4, she asked my Native American dad "Papa, why are you black?" My 7-week-old son has really good aim. I was changing his diaper and he peed straight up in the air, over my head, and right on top of my dad's head. My family will always laugh about that!! I have 4 kids. I could go on and on and on. But I'm sure you have other things that you want to be doing right now. lol. God Bless!!
