21 Children’s Antics That Would Probably Make Even the Most Bitter Person Laugh
Having a child in the family guarantees a smile at home. They copy everything they see and learn everything, but the innocent way they look at things gives them the ability to create unique moments in the process. From crazy comments to the craziest thoughts, below we share 21 children’s smart things have said that made us crack.
- My 3-year-old son hurts himself playing and exclaims, “SHOOT.”
Me: Honey, you shouldn’t say that word. It’s not nice.
My son: And can I say GOSH?
Me: Yes, you can say GOSH.
My son: If I can say GOSH, why can’t I say SHOOT?
I was disarmed by that logic and agreed with him.
After a few days, my son was in the living room with his father, and I was in the kitchen.
My son: SHOOT!
Dad: Honey, you know you can’t say that.
My son: Mom, come and explain to Dad why I can say SHOOT.

- My 4-year-old son and I were once on a public transportation minibus. He sat next to the open door, and I told him he had better change places with me. I told him it was because he could fall and get hit by a car. He replied, “And if you die, who is going to feed me?” © Rosy S. Paz / Facebook
- My sister told my 5-year-old nephew that she had a baby sister for him in her tummy. He asked her if she had swallowed it, and after explaining the situation a bit, she asked, “Does it come unassembled like Kinder Eggs?” © Luzma Garcia Alvarez / Facebook
- For a New Year’s Eve party, I dyed my hair blonde, and my husband and I went to greet his family. His younger sister’s daughter was about 5 or 6 years old, and when we arrived, she was not there. We said hello, and I sat at the other end of the room, and my husband sat near the entrance.
When she arrived, she looked at me and approached my husband’s ear. She asked him very discreetly, “What about the brunette you brought before?” My husband, laughing, told her that he had changed her for a blonde girl, and we laughed a lot. © Carmen Vargas / Facebook
- My nephew brought his girlfriend home for the first time and introduced her to his 4-year-old little sister. She looked at them in disbelief, thought for a bit, and then, looking her in the eye, said, “Are you sure? Because he doesn’t work!”. The girlfriend covered her mouth in surprise and burst out laughing, as did my nephew and me. Anyway, the girl is right. © Hanna Delat / Facebook

- My little nephew was about 6 years old and was talking about his teacher. He said, “Auntie, she has a belly like yours,” and I had to laugh. © Marta Cruz / Facebook
- My friends are coaches of the children’s division at the club. One day, a little girl came running up and shouted in front of the whole team: “Sorry, teachers, I’m late because my dad took too long in the bathroom.” The father, who was a few steps behind her, turned around and left.
- When my son was 3, we went to Costco. At the checkout line, I went ahead to put the groceries in the cart, and he stayed behind with his dad. Suddenly, he yelled, “Mom, who fizzed? Because it smells awful.” © Claudia María Catalá Arrieta / Facebook
- When she was 5 years old, my daughter asked me: “Mom, is that man pregnant?” His wife, who was talking to me, burst out laughing. © Marta Espinosa Guerrero / Facebook
- My daughter Victoria is 6 years old.
Victoria: Mommy, isn’t it true that Zara (her sister) is leaving middle school to go to high school?
Me: Yes, my love, next year.
Victoria: How sad for her, isn’t it? She’s already becoming an adult!
She says that being an adult is not so nice because you have to do many things, go out to work, and all that. Plus, she wouldn’t be able to snack on whatever she wants anymore. © Gisele Cortés / Facebook
- My children were younger, and when I argued with my eldest, the little 6-year-old would tell her: “Just say yes to everything she says, and she’ll stop.” It was his technique to avoid arguing with me. He always ended up doing anything he wanted anyways, but it still too bad that he forgot his advice not to fight when he grew older. © Emma Kelly / Facebook
- My job is to make coffins. My kids love to brag about it, but most are scared. My 7-year-old son was arguing with another boy and said in a threatening tone, “My mom buries people, and no one notices, with kids, it’s easier, she says”.
Even though I was scared, other moms looked at me strangely and stopped talking to me. Now it makes me laugh, but she certainly earned other kids’ respect. © Polette Martinez / Facebook
