Wacky Wednesdays: Kids Really Do Say (and Do) The Funniest Things!

Everyone needs to laugh! Laughter is like medicine. Since we know that life can be a beautiful struggle, we should do ourselves a favor and laugh out loud!  I can tell you for sure that as a parent and teacher, some of the funniest things I’ve ever seen or heard were from KIDS! The thing that makes them so funny is their sincerity in what they say and do. For the most part, they are being as honest and as real as they know how to be.  Remember the show by Bill Cosby from the 90’s Kids Say the Darnest Things? I still remember some of those episodes…cracking up laughing at those cute little kids.

To lighten the load on this “hump day,” I thought I’d revive the spirit of KID COMEDY! I’ve collected (from my own crazy life and from others) funny things kids say and do!

When my son Caleb was 2 years old, decided he wanted to look like paw paw. So he pulled up his shirt to let his belly out and put on my dad’s shoes, but then he couldn’t stop watching the tv!

Caleb decided to show up for dinner one evening dressed as his favorite character from Super Why!

We get upset when kids draw on walls or on their clothes. What would you do if your child made a work of art out of his siblings?!

7 year old Kayla was outside with her mom when a ladybug landed nearby. With a puzzled look on her face, she turned and asked her mom, “What is the daddy ladybug called?”

As we were riding home from church one day, Caleb (whose now 5) says to me from the backseat, “Mommy I always wanted to pet a squirrel. That’s my real dream.”

A grandmother was in the store with her small grandson and he saw something that he really wanted. He began to plead with his grandmother to get it for him and she kept responding, “Well I don’t have the money right now.” Finally, the little boy–with a puzzled look on his face–said to his grandmother, “If you don’t have any money, why you in the store for?”

  I could go on and on all day with this! I’m sure you have funny stories and pictures to share as well. Keep laughing and keep Making Life Magnificent!

Since the holidays can be stressful, it’s ok to stop and be silly too!!

In the midst of running around to find the perfect gift, getting everything in the house picture perfect for visiting family members, attempting to cooking meals that look like they come from a Better Homes and Gardens magazine, we can forget what really matters when it comes to the holidays.

Children have a wonderful way of reminding us that holidays are supposed to be festive, happy times when we let our hair down a little and enjoy each other. My son wanted to take silly pictures with me, which I thought was a complete waste of time. I’m thinking to myself, “I have to pack our bags because we’re going out of town to visit family, get the last gifts wrapped, clean the house before we go, take out the trash, get that very last minute gift for the person I forgot, on and on. I don’t have time for being silly.”

Yet in his persistent 5-year-old way, he kept asking and finally we sat down to take silly pictures. What I thought would be a time crusher, ended up being a great moment of quality time with my son, and as an added bonus–a great relief of stress for me.

So don’t forget on Christmas when everything seems to be happening at once, take some time to just be a little silly. 🙂
