Wednesday Walk Along: Kids Say the Darnedest Things

With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.

William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

When stress makes its way into my bones, I thank God for the laughter in my life. Often, that laughter (and stress, admittedly) comes in the form of my children. So, if you are walking a rough road today, this one is for you. You can thank my three year old.

Do you have any funny kid moments to share? I’d love to hear them.

Here’s to our little ones!

  1. My Facebook and Instagram are full of funny kid moments. They just aren’t my biological kids. 😛

    I think my favorite one was this one girl who used to come to my room after school to work on homework so she could ask me questions if necessary. It worked; her grade went from a D to a B over the course of the rest of the year. This girl had absolutely no filter, and she was really loud. One day she walked into my class holding a worksheet with a diagram of a penis and a vagina. She said, “LOOK WHAT WE’RE LEARNING ABOUT IN SCIENCE CLASS!”
    Me: It looks like you’re learning about reproduction.
    Her: YEAH! IT’S DISGUSTING!
    Me: But it’s kind of important.

    Later, she was done with math, so she was working on history. She said something about Mr. M, her history teacher. I know Mr. M, and he’s a substitute. But then I remembered that one of the history teachers was out for the rest of the year.
    Me: Is Mr. M the substitute for Mrs. C for the rest of the year?
    Her: YEAH! MRS. C LEFT BECAUSE SHE WAS HAVING A BABY!
    Me: I know. I saw the pictures. The baby was just born a few days ago.
    Her (holding up science worksheet): WHEN MRS. C GETS BACK, I’M GOING TO SHOW HER THIS!!! AND I’M GOING TO SAY, “I KNOW HOW YOU GOT PREGNANT!!!”

      1. I think I told her something like, “I’m pretty sure Mrs. C knows too.”

        A few months later, I told that story to some other teachers. The science teacher who assigned that homework walked in to the middle of me telling the story, and she knew exactly which student I was talking about, without me having mentioned any names.
