We all know kids say the darnedest things, but what about parents? Taking care of the kids can lead to some crazy (and hilarious) antics, as most parents know.
So, we asked parents about the weirdest things they’ve ever said to their kids—and they didn’t disappoint!
Check out what these parents have found themselves saying. You’ll laugh out loud just as surely as they did!
Watch what you lick!
“Just because the dog licked you does not mean you should lick her.” -Rebecca Allen
Basically, toilet training is an important step for kids.
“Don’t pee in the toy box!”
“Don’t pee into the vent!”
“Don’t pee on your brother!”
There may have been a certain pattern of behavior in my house. -Brit Struchen
The ins and outs of pregnancy v.s. gardening:
My son asked me the other day if the dad has to fertilize the egg every 3 months during pregnancy like you do with a plant.
I’m really just curious about who is teaching my son about gardening because it certainly didn’t come from this house. -Karen Smith
Restaurant etiquette is a work in progress.
Careful what you say while phone calls are in progress!
Just one of those twin things…
Sound advice, if strange.
Not the best threat to make in front of your neighbors:
When my son was three, I bought him a set of wiffle balls at the store.
He threw a huge tantrum on the way home for some unrelated thing.
We arrived at the house, got out of the car, and in front of a large group of neighbors I shouted at my son, “DO YOU WANNA KEEP YOUR BALLS?!?!” -Michelle Young
One life lesson everyone should learn at a young age:
“We don’t ride the pony naked!”
My youngest had a rocking horse and would run away without her diaper and try to ride it. -Jennifer Geake
Remember kids: don’t listen to Grandpa!
You can’t always trust your kids’ definition of something.
