There are times when it’s an adult’s world, and kids are really just dragged along for the ride. Then there are times when kids are totally and completely in charge and leave us adults behind, scratching our heads in confusion!

As a mom, it’s easy to get stuck in a grove of responsibility, sleep, responsibility, repeat.

But when you stop and listen to your kids, and watch them try to be what they think a reasonable human is…you have to laugh!

Set aside your responsibilities for a few minutes and read some instances where kids absolutely nailed it with their wisdom and life choices…and the best part is, these kids are really not asking for anyone’s opinion!

Shannon Bynum Dewease from Southern Blessed Chaos



“My two year old daughter has recently been crying over things I have no control over. She has a stuffed doll that doesn’t sit up straight so she will spend 5 minutes trying to get her to sit up straight and then have a complete melt down because it doesn’t work. The stuffed doll can never sit up straight it’s just not possible but no matter how I explain it she wakes up the next day and does the whole process again.”

Tricia Jones from The Healthy(ish) Home



“…Mommy don’t mess with me because you said it’s my birthday I can do what I want!”

Майта from Cheerful Nomads 



“My son had recently turned 3 and unfortunately I have a habit of saying “this is ridiculous.” 

Well one day as we’re getting ready for naps he apparently thinks that he shouldn’t have to take one. He flops back on his bed and goes “you’re being ridiculous” (except of course ridiculous came out more like “rudiculus.”) 

I almost fell over from laughing.”

Erin Santangelo at Threein3



“My 7 year old starting singing a certain Rihanna song about having money REALLY LOUDLY inside the Kroger once. Then proceeded to ask me if I needed any “mommy drinks” aka beer. #badmom”

“… just yesterday our 3 yo almost burnt the house down by microwaving corn dogs by using a dining chair to reach. 

Our 10 yo has also flooded our basement. 5 yo got stuck in a hole once. We’ve also had a horrendous experience of signing a toddler up for soccer (let’s just say he never played). 😂”

Erin Nicole Vaughn from Vaughn Day at a Time



“Just yesterday I noticed my 4yo had a “skid mark” on her undies so I told her to make sure and wipe better. Her response was “I was in a hurry mom, so I skipped that” 😧

Jennifer Widera from One Hoppy Momma



“My 4 yo was walking around with one shoe on and I asked her why she only had one and she said she didn’t want the other one and I said “ok so you want to walk around with just one shoe on?” And she said “yeah, what’s that got to do with you?” 🤦🏼‍♀️

Christa Bybee at Piney Woods Mama



“There is an expression that says my kids are climbing the walls. My three year old tries to climb a lot of things, including the fridge.”

Tiffany Sears from Sears in the South



“My son, age four, looked at this random man at a Taco Bell & said “Mom, I don’t like him” really loud & pointed. Thankfully the man just smiled and we ended up talking lol.”

Jessica Yerkes Tyra at Mess Hall Mom



“My little guy was late in life blessing! He has several older brothers. One day he came around the corner with quite the surprise for us all. He found his 18-year-old brother’s hair pomade. It was quite a sight!”

Tricia Brockway from Habibi House



“One day, my younger son, who was 9 or 10 months old at the time, woke up super early. So, I picked him up from his crib and brought him downstairs. I made myself a cup of coffee and put him at his toy box to play. He seemed to be playing so nicely…or so I thought. When he turned around, I saw what looked like chocolate all over his face. He smiled, and revealed seemingly chocolate covered teeth. As I walked over to clean him off, the smell hit me. POOP! He literally ate dog poo and smeared it all over his face! “

Erin Ashley Boado from Lullaby Lark



“I had a recent conversation with my daughter that went:
Her: Mom did you know there was a President Lincoln (her brother’s name)?
Me: Yes, I did, did you know there was a President Reagan (Her sister’s name)?
Her: What?! I wish there was a President Macie (her name).
Me: Maybe when you grow up you can be President Macie.
Her: No mom, I told you I’m going to be on YouTube.
Me: 🤦🏻‍♀️ Or maybe you could be a scientist like your dad?
Her: Oh yeah! Or I can do science on YouTube!

Didn’t we all used to want to be Marine Biologists? And now our kids just want to be YouTube stars? 🤷🏻‍♀️”

Valerie McKenrick Clement 



“Now that he is 15 months, he looks us straight in the eye (with a devilish glint in his own), baiting us, before proceeding to do the exact thing he has been told (requested /pleaded/ begged) not to!!”

Sakshi Varma from Triple a Mommy



“My 16-month-old girl requires my “help” to drink out of her cup, but has no problem kneeling over the dog’s water dish and slurping his water up. I can always tell when she’s been doing it because her entire face is soaking wet, including her crazy mop of hair.”

Ayesha Schroeder from Work From Home Mama
