Kids Who Are Doing Just Fine Without Your So-Called ‘Rules’

Kids are very strange. They all seem to march to the beat of their own drum and don’t really care what other people think. It’s really a great way to live your life. I do respect a person who looks at the way you do things and thinks, “nope, that’s not for me!” and starts doing things their own way.

Who needs rules, anyway?

Portable Cheese? Yes, Please!

This little girl has been shaping cheddar cheese and sticking it in a chapstick tube so that she can keep it in her pocket and eat it whenever she wants.

Technically Not Wrong

When his mom asked him to get his clothes up off the floor, this is not what she meant, however, she can’t really be mad because that’s what he did.

Is That Yummy?

There are worse snacks your little kid could sit on the couch and eat with scissors, but it’s still a little strange. Aren’t there kitchen scissors she can use instead of using craft scissors?

No One Is Going To Notice

At least the kid who replaced the real chicken wing with a plastic chicken wing is trying to do a nice thing, right? That, or they’re just smart enough to know what to do not to get caught.

Living His Best Life

Do you know any adult who is living their life to the fullest like this kid is? I mean, a boat full of chips in the pool? I’m stealing this idea.

“What Are You Going To Do Now?”

Everyone in that store just knows that this little kid is out of control and he’s going to keep doing what he wants. He’ll come down when he’s ready to.

Yes, Math!

Honestly, this is all the math you really need to know in the real world, because we all have phones now that have calculators and Google on them. Life should be more about wrong answers and rainbows.

Something Sweet For Their Sweetie

Someone who knows how to look out for themselves is the kind of person you want to be. Aiden doesn’t need anyone to give them candy, they’re going to get it for themselves!

Nothing Gets In The Way Of Pizza

She’s mad at her family and doesn’t want to see them, but she still wants to eat her pizza while it’s hot. Good thing she has a sleep mask so she can eat and ignore them.

Kids And Technology

When I was 7 years old, I’m not sure that I really knew how to turn a TV on by myself, let alone change my dad’s name to Toilet Face on Netflix.

That’s Some Heavy Take Out

This kid is starting a long life of stealing cutlery and glasses from restaurants that they visit. It’s just easier than putting all of the food in the container and spilling it all over.

A Future CEO

This kid clearly knows how to work the system, and they’re going to go places. Market to all those Karens in the neighborhood and you’re going to go far, little one.

Get Those Cheesies, Girl

What is it with kids and knowing all the right places to store their snacks? If I opened my purse in the grocery store and there were a bunch of loose Cheetos, I would be judged.

What A Beautiful Piece Of Art

This is one of those things where he made sure that he did a really bad job so that his mom would never sign him up for art camp again.

True Love Is Never Lost

Who remembers their first crush? This kid will always remember how much he loved ketchup as a child and probably always have a soft spot for it. Get that all up on his burgers!

Do Those Come In My Size?

This little guy wanted to go trick or treating dressed up as his favorite thing: a good pair of jeans. He’s loving things way before his time. I hope he got lots of candy.

Can’t Take Any Chances

When your brother is learning to drive and you want to be supportive but aren’t too trusting of his skills, you have to take precautionary measures, like wearing a helmet in the back seat.

Just Watching Stories

Don’t have a blanket? No problem, a large box will do just fine. It’s like a fort and a blanket without a lot of the work. Hopefully, no one mistakes his box for garbage and throws it out on him.

A True Queen

It was “Princess Day” in ballet class, and one of the little girls took it upon themselves to dress like a real queen. She is rocking that hot dog costume.

I’d Eat It

Kids think of the strangest things to eat, but I have to admit, a peanut butter sandwich with a bunch of Lucky Charms marshmallows is something I would shame-eat after a night at the bar.

Living The Best Life

How come they don’t make these in adult sizes? It’s probably a good thing that they don’t; otherwise, so many of us would never leave our beds for any reason at all.

Pink Is Her Color

That’s a lovely, tolerant dog to let their tiny human paint their nails that color. Just wait, though, it’s going to be the newest thing that everyone starts doing to their pets.

Should We Be Worried?

They had to send a picture home from camp to let their parents know how they were doing, and they sent this. It’s a story about Janet, a hero only to herself, who cuts people in half.

A Worm, Indeed

Who are we to tell this young, budding artist how they are supposed to express themselves? A little yellow worm might be how they’re feeling on the inside, for all we know.

A Future Lawyer

He was told that he couldn’t have food in the living room or his iPad in the kitchen, so he lay down in the kitchen with his snacks to watch his iPad. That’s a workaround worthy of a law degree.

Everyone Is Uncomfortable

This little lady has taken it upon herself to walk around whatever store she is in and just make big checks on a sheet of paper. It makes everyone uncomfortable, but she doesn’t care.

Shh…Don’t Wake Her

Some kids have stuffed animals or blankets that they can’t sleep without. This little girl has a jar of peanuts to keep the bad dreams away. And it’s a snack if she gets hungry.

“Back Off From The Snacks!”

This little guy didn’t take too kindly to his dad trying to stop him from putting his fingers in an electrical socket where they clearly do not go. At least it was a plastic knife.

Is That Working?

In a way, she’s getting into that free-range, organic movement, and that’s very trendy right now. But is it really working for her to try and suck juice up through an apple?

This is how I played sports when I was little. I went just for the snacks and to spend some time outside. I wasn’t going to actually participate in anything.

Any Place Is A Good Place To Nap

This little girl decided that she was tired so she was going to draw herself a pillow on the sidewalk and lie down and catch some z’s. I respect someone who can sleep anywhere.

Elves, Elvis, It’s All The Same

It was the Christmas pageant and this guy thought that he was supposed to dress up as Elvis instead of one of Santa’s elves. Not sure where that confusion came from but I’m here for it.

Sounds Like A Good Dog

Your dog can be a lot of great things, but one of the best things about this kid’s dog is that he is a big, fat, round puppy that loves to be snuggled. I’m just guessing, anyway.

Why Not Both?

This little girl was not going to let anyone tell her that she couldn’t be both a warrior and a fairy princess. She’s coming for all the haters who told her not to follow her dreams.

Do You Think He’s Popular?

This little kid is mature beyond his years because he doesn’t find IT scary. Though, I wonder how much of this is mom and dad thinking it’s funny and the little boy not knowing.

What Cute Butterflies

Mom wanted some beautifully painted butterflies for her living room so her kids were happy to do that for her. Only, their interpretation was to paint their butt cheeks and put them all over the paper.

Those Look Like Good Names

Teachers really need to learn to be more specific when they ask some kids to name the shapes. Because for all we know these are those shape’s names, just different ones than we know.

Look At Their Cute Matching Outfits

There had to be some way to tell them apart if mom and dad are going to dress them up in matching outfits. So, she took matters into her own hands.

Who Said You Have To Be Good?

This little boy has decided that he’s done with being a good kid and he’s seriously considering going over to the dark side. It looks like he’s pretty comfortable with it.

It’s Like An Episode Of The Bachelor

This little boy is starting out his life as a player at a very young age. He got roses for all the girls at the school dance. The little girl in the red is not standing for it.
