Kids. You can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em.

Well, I mean you can live without them if you don’t have them.

Listen, sometimes parents sure wish they could send them off to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for a few weeks (er, months?… years?)

No, you’d miss them too much, right?

But you know what you’d miss? These 15 hilarious examples of kids just … being kids!

1. Cleanup Time

… with Daddy’s toothbrush! You weren’t going to use that anyway.

Lockdown day 17. In case anyone is wondering how us parents are doing, this is my 3 years old cleaning his potty with my toothbrush

What a great idea! They’re so absorbent!

My son found my “fishing rods”

3. Bye Sully

What a monster turd that was!

Had to replace and shatter my toilet to see what the blockage was. My 2 year old had flushed Sully in there…even he looks guilty.

Aw, mom, come on! It’s just begging to be licked!

Got that face when I asked her not to kiss the manhole cover

5. Privacy Premium

Nope, none to be found around here. Even if there’s a screen in between us and them.

They’re just curious

This part tastes the best, obviously. They found out!

The way my little brother eats strawberries ( then proceeds to leave them out all night )

Hey, now that’s not a bad idea! Who’s hungry?

My son discovered that I’m not really at work, but am working from home

13. Bye Bears

Scandalous beheading!


14. Cheese Whiz

Now this kid is going places!

I present to you “orange puff spinning” in my son’s words… I never thought I’d have to vacuum my washer, but here we are.

Mmmm, delicious!

Daughter decided to toast her crackers in the heater and not tell me about it for a couple years

Do you need any more proof that having children can be both hellish and hilarious? I think not. Some of these are just too funny — you have to laugh!

Do you have any parenting horror stories that would make you cry if you weren’t laughing so hard?

Let us know in the comments!

We’d love to hear from you!
