Not to me, but my daughters were bickering and my youngest says “at least I wasn’t an accident!” and her sister didn’t miss a beat and shot back “no, you were a mistake”. I laughed so damn hard.

I used to give my kid a five dollar bill to tip the pizza guys. He loved it, it made him feel like a big kid. Once, when he was about four, I gave him a fiver and he leaned in real close and said “if you give me fifty bucks, I’ll k*ll Superman”.

My stepdaughter was about 5/6 when I got pregnant with her half brother, I was getting dressed one morning and she looked at the stretchmarks on my 7/8 month along belly and asked ‘why did the baby write all over your tummy’? Still one of my most precious memories of when she was little!

Not me but my mom who used to teach younger children once had a kid tell her that the kids mom actually had a p*nis too, just like dads do. My mom reacted with scepticism and then the kid blurted out ”No she really does, I’ve seen it myself in her bedroom drawer”.

One of the funniest things one of my children said to me is that scorpions are desert lobsters and I don’t think she is wrong ?.


It wasn’t to me, but to my brother in law. He was driving in his truck with his toddler daughter safely belted into her car seat. To keep her amused during the drive he was asking her what noises different animals make.

“What does a cow say?”


“What does a pig say?”

“Oink, oink!”

Then he decided to mess with her and asks “What does a turtle say?”

She was silent for a moment as she thought about it, then busted out in a big smile and said “Kowabunga dude!”.

Little guy found his way in my room, said he’s good at math and asked if he could help. “Eh I don’t know, how do you draw the energy plot of a square signal?”, and this kid, confidently amd without missing a beat, “With a pencil”.

Reminds me of when my mom was looking at baby photos of me, and there was a picture of her and tiny me on her lap. i asked where my younger brother was, since he wasn’t in the photo, and she responded with “he’s in mommy’s tummy.” this was the first time my conscious mind had been introduced to the concept of pregnancy, as my response was a wide-eyed glare followed by “YOU ATE HIM???”

I worked at a day care for a bit and they said funny s**t all the time.. one of my favorites was when we were going over fire safety and the main teacher asked the class.. what do you do if you’re on fire? A 3y/o girl shoots her hand up in the air and yells “STOP DROP AND ROCK N ROLL!!!”.

My then-4 yr old was wearing a Darth Vader t shirt that said “VADER” across the image of the dude, where the little triangle of the “A” was lined up to the triangle on Vaders mask. Pretty cool right?

Conservative uncle was complimenting his shirt. My little guy replied “Thanks! And hey look. The A-hole is his mouth!!” ? I think uncles soul left his body. Kid had no idea why everyone was laughing so hard.

I used to teach English in China.

One day, I was collecting homework from my 11-year-olds, and out of nowhere, the quietest, most reserved girl in the class pulls her homework out from behind her back, shoves it in my face, and exclaims, “SURPRISE, M**********R!”

The inflection was EXACTLY the same as the meme from Dexter.

I had to hold back my laughter so hard because it was in the middle of class, but the second the students left the classroom, I couldn’t contain myself. I was nearly in tears.

When I was deployed to Afghanistan we got a package from a bunch of elementary school kids. They sent cards, candy, and snacks. On one of the cards was a drawing of a graphic firefight with a bunch of dead soldiers. The only thing the card said was I hope you don’t die. It made everyone laugh and we hung it up in our room lol.

I once overheard a kid trying to convince his friend that he had superpowers. When his friend asked what they were, he confidently replied, “I can make all the traffic lights turn green… eventually.” It was a charming mix of innocence and creativity!

Helping my grandmother go grocery shopping with my much younger cousins. Took one up to the bathroom while she grabbed a few more things. As we were walking back to her, he, very loudly, says “look! It’s grandmas special juice!”. While pointing at the wine aisle.


I returned to skateboarding after 30 years away. I was at a local skate park and ate s**t. While I was on my back checking my internal systems to determine if anything was broken or bleeding, a young kid rolls up and says, “Damn, are you ok grandpa?!” ??.

My kids were getting in the car when my daughter (7) elbowed my son (5) between the legs, conversation went as follows…

Son: ow my peanuts!

Me: your what?

Daughter: his peanuts

Me: what’s that?

Daughter: it’s another name for winky that I heard at school.

I didn’t correct them as it’s just too funny.


Years ago I had a goatee and moustache combo. My cousins 7 year old daughter told me that my mouth looked like a v*gina. At the time I was just “um, okay”. Though now I find it a funny story.
