Do you remember that old Bill Cosby special turned show Kids Say the Darndest Things? I was a teenager when that aired, but even then the inadvertent hilarity of children wasn’t lost on me. They should bring that show back. It would definitely make it to my DVR line up.
As much fun as it would be to watch on television, my life is sort of one never-ending episode of Kids Say the Darndest Things. Sometimes the questions and observations Danica and Anders make blow my mind.
“If Goofy and Pluto are both dogs why is Goofy the only one that talks, wears clothes, and walks on two legs, mom?”
Other times they both amuse me and make me wish I had a way to tap into their inner-monologue.
“Mommy, do dinosaurs have bellybuttons?”
And then there are the times when they make me want to sink into the Earth and live somewhere in the lower mantle, a place surely cooler than heat of my cheeks burning from embarrassment.
“You have a vagina. You have a penis. You have a vagina. And you. I’m not sure about you. What do you have?” (Anders at a family reunion. I’m still so sorry about that Cousin Chad.)
I stumbled across this article the other day on the Huffington Post sharing the deep thoughts of children. Hilarious! It got me wondering about the other stories out there. Clearly I’m not the only one with unintentionally funny or mortifying children. So tell me, Babble readers, what deep thoughts have your kids had lately?
I could use a laugh lately.
