Times Children Made Us Laugh Enough To Mask Our Tears

Having and being around children is one of the great joys in life.

They are often so pure and wholesome. They also can give us some pretty hilarious moments when they are not even trying. Here are some kids who are making us laugh, just by being themselves.

Sidewalk Nap

Kids can nap just about anywhere if they are tired enough.

This little one wanted to have a nap but didn’t have a pillow, so she drew one on the sidewalk with chalk and laid down for a nap.

Cat Tower Trap

As a parent, when you do not hear your child for a short while, that usually means something bad is happening.

This parent looked for their child and found her stuck in the cat tower.

Cat Food Breakfast

Sometimes children want to be independent and think that they can do things on their own.

This little one wanted to pour her own cereal. The only issue was that it was the cat food cowl and not the cereal bowl.

Custom Backgrounds

This child decided to have a little fun with the tablets while their parent was looking at something else in the store.

Luckily the parent was able to snap a picture while they were laughing.

Wanted Their Own Dog Cone

Kids do not want to be left out of things if they think that someone may be getting more attention than they are.

This little one hilariously wanted their own dog cone.

Just Not 100%

There is a reason why there was a longstanding show on TV called Kids Say the Darndest Things.

This little person wrote their parent a note saying they will respect them because they do 70% of what they need. Only 70?

How Much Is What?

When children are learning to spell, it can be hard to sound out the words when writing.

This child’s misspelling of “shirt” gave the teacher quite a laugh when they were marking papers.

Panty Liners On The Wall

This parent could not stop laughing when they went to go see what their child meant when they said they found “stickers” in the bathroom.

Luckily they took this picture before they cleaned it up.

Jungle Gym Everywhere

Anything can be a jungle gym to a small child.

This parent found that out when they were walking around the car to get their other child buckled in. The young one was hanging from the emergency handle.

Cardboard Yoda

Kids can come up with some pretty funny crafts of their favorite movie characters.

This parent was very amused by their child’s cardboard Yoda, specifically where they decided to put his cane.

Healthy Cookies

This little one knew that cookies are not the healthiest of snacks.

She also knew that something like lettuce was a healthier option. So she combined them to make the cookie more “healthy.”

Life Is A Waterslide

This kid gave their parent a rather funny message on their birthday card.

While the message ends up being a little morbid, the idea is there and just needs a little bit of work to make it sound better.

Misunderstood Sign

Children do not always understand everything at a young age which can lead to some hilarious questions.

Like this baby changing sign, which made a child ask their mom why the woman was throwing the baby on the ground.

Loves Her Whole Family

This parent’s daughter was so close to making a very loving message for her family.

Unfortunately, she was so close, yet so far as her misspelling of one critical word resulted in a very different message.

If Only They Knew

This little one thought that they were helping their parent get rid of their “too many $1 bills.”

The result is one of them cut up into many strips, which is so sad and funny at the same time.

Novice Hide-And-Seek Player

Many kids believe in the “if I can’t see them, they can’t see me” philosophy.

It is an adorable way to look at things but also results in some rather funny hide-and-seek hiding spots.

Dinosaur Mouth

In the blink of an eye, kids can get themselves into some very funny situations.

This kid managed to get himself in the mouth of a dinosaur at an amusement park.

Custom Earring

There are many things that kids will do in order to “look cool.”

This little guy let a small lizard latch onto his ear and called it a cool “earring.”

Farted In Lap

Some kids will document just about everything in their school journal.

This little one made a rather hilarious entry for school where she said that she farted in her mom’s lap. We’re laughing at what the teacher may have thought.

Big Baby Mess

This picture is equal parts funny and sad at the same time.

We are laughing at how messy the little one has managed to get, and sad because of the mess that their parent now has to clean up.
