Truth be told, boundaries just don't exist for kids, which is both good and bad. Because of this wonderful quality kids are not afraid to ask a million and one questions per minute. They learn how to draw, pick their nose and watch cartoons all at the same time while simultaneously laying upside down on the couch.
But sometimes you just wish your kids could read social cues a little (or a lot) better. The hilarious Internet stories about these 15 kids prove that children can do the impossible: they can be both really embarrassing and naively cute and funny all at once.
1. "My daughter decided to strip completely naked, nappy and all, in the shop when I had my back turned for about five seconds. I only became aware when a lovely lady tapped me on my shoulder and whispered into my ear, 'Excuse me, love, your child is dancing naked beside the potatoes.'"
2. “When my kid was first learning to tell the difference between men and women, he liked to practice loudly, in public. One day we were sitting in a restaurant, and he decided to review.
-Mom, you're a woman.
-Yes, sweetie, that's right!
-And Papa's a man.
-Yes, right again.
-And she-- (pointing to an old lady sitting across the room from us) she's a WITCH! At the top of his lungs, of course.”
3. "My daughter's daycare had circle time every morning as a way to start the day. Anyway, we were late and walked into the middle of circle time. My daughter said, 'We're late because my mommy had diarrhea.'”
4. "'You're a funny little man, but I like your hat.' My 4-year-old said that to a little person in the airport who was wearing a cowboy hat. I practically wanted to keep walking and leave him there, then I heard the man respond, 'Thank you. And you're a funny little man too!' He was great about it, and several of us ended up smiling instead of being mortified."
5. “My 4-year-old son felt the need to warn "old" people they will die ... he told a lady in the grocery:
-Old people die ... and you don’t look so good.”
6. “My son was feeling really badly about pooping his pants, so to make him feel better I told him that it happens to everyone, even mommy. The next day we walked into daycare and told the lead teacher:
-Yesterday I pooped my pants, but mom said it was ok; it happens to her all the time.”
7. “My daughter once asked a black guy why he was made of chocolate. I was incredibly embarrassed. The man thought it was hilarious.”
8. “My daughter at the tender age of 8 announced to a crowded room that when she grows up she wants to be a prostitute! Turns out she meant prosecutor but, you know, it took a while.”
9. “When I was around 3 years old my dad told me that smoking was bad and that only idiots smoke. A couple days later we walked past a smoking woman. I remembered what my dad had told me, and I said with the loudest voice possible:
-Dad, look at that idiot over there smoking cigarettes!"
10. “My, then two-year-old, being held by a woman who drew on her eyebrows, exclaimed ‘You have something on your face!’ followed by proudly wiping off one eyebrow, he said, ‘There I got it for ya!’”
11. “It was date night, just my 4-year-old daughter and I. We went out for a 'fancy' dinner at a nice restaurant. She told me during dinner:
- Are you going to be able to walk or am I going to have to roll you out of here?”
12. "I'm so hungry, I could eat the baby Jesus!", said a 4-year-old boy in church on Christmas.
13. “My daughter Trisha was about 2 when I made her walk to the store... no stroller! So we get there, get our shopping done and at the register there comes a man in a wheelchair! Trisha looks at me and gets really mad and tells me: ‘That is so mean! I have to walk while he gets to drive!’ Oh my, I wanted to just disappear!”
14. “We were at church and they called the young children to the front to talk about tithing and stealing and they asked, ‘If you found some money lying on the ground, what would you do?’ My then four-year-old daughter replied, ‘Finders keepers, losers weepers.’”
15. “Not a parent, but when I was 4 my mom almost got in an accident on the freeway. She slammed on the horn and screamed "jackass" out the window all while flipping them the bird.
Fast Forward a couple weeks. We are leaving my grandparents house and my mom honks the horn as to say goodbye. I proceed to roll down my window and give them the finger, yelling "jackass" as we drove away.”
