Another collection of kid-isms...
|Cuddly toys for 'cuddly' parents.|
1) Cuddly parents
To start things off, here’s a status posted by a facebook friend with a very diplomatic daughter…
“My 8 year old daughter just said, “You know, some people think they are fat when they are really not ... they are just cuddly. And you are the second most cuddly person I know!”
Ha, ha! That's the type of compliment that only a kid could get away with.
2) The Royal Baby
Here's a status from a facebook friend who’s a teacher...
“Question to year two class today...
Does anyone know the name of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge's little boy?
Answer given: Baby Jesus”
3) Tactless honesty
This next facebook status demonstrates that sometimes kids can be inappropriately honest…
“Parked the car a bit wonky yesterday. Jamie’s response, ‘Daddy, you've done a Mummy park.’”
4) A generous gift, and generous margins of error…
Next up is a photo posted on twitter by @Cheeseboy22, and it’s a photo of a card, and the accompanying gift, his 8 year old son gave to a friend at a birthday party...
I love the ‘something around there’ addendum but the whole message is absolute genius. You have to say, it was a very generous gift, not to mention an even more generous margin of error when he was adding up his totals.
Here are a few more from twitter…
5) Important 'To Do' List
“When you go on vacation, it's important to remember to come home.” @peaceupdfal
You can’t argue with that! Although having said that, I love holidays so much that personally I could quite happily ‘forget’ to come home.
6) My Christmas list…
“I wanted a sword from Japan five times but my mom said no.” @Dusty__Lee
What a cruel mom!
|An ambulance ... er, I mean, an ice cream.|
I'm always getting those two muddled up!
7) An easy mistake to make…
“Yay an ice cream truck!!!” Nope, that's an ambulance. #ThingsKidsSay #kidisms" @stenziepoo12
8) Not even the strongest person in the world can lift this.
“My toddler, holding both sides of her waist, ‘I can't pick myself up!’” @zerotofivebook
It seems that Isaac Newton wasn't the only one to discover gravity.
9) Musical concerns
This next one is from a friend of mine who has clearly raised his daughter well...
"Henrietta’s response to being told that we're taking them to the Latitude Festival this summer...
Henrietta: Are One Direction playing?
10) An honest book review
Finally, here's an unintentionally amusing book review tweeted by @272BookFaith written by her six year old daughter. The book review captures just how much her daughter loves the book, and does so in a brilliantly child-like way:
|"Get your hands off my book!"|
As her mother commented, the review owes its inspiration to a misunderstanding regarding the availability of multiple copies, but if I was the book publisher I'd definitely consider using the book review in an advertising campaign with a slogan such as…
“The book one kid loved so much that she didn’t want to share it with anyone!”
I recently published the short story ‘Small Pots Also Have Ears’ which deals with the subject of kids making unintentionally amusing comments, and you can download it for free from Payhip, Smashwords and by direct download. You can also read it online at Wattpad.
