Kids say the darnedest things, don’t they? Now, thanks to a new Twitter thread posted by writer Mikki Kendall, we can read what’s really_on their minds. Fair warning: It’s not all rainbows and unicorns — in fact, some kids blurt out things that are downright bizarre.
Earlier this week, Kendall posted the following question: “People who interact with kids, what is the single weirdest/creepiest thing a kid has ever said to you?”
People who interact with kids, what is the single weirdest/creepiest thing a kid has ever said to you? It's Saturday night so why not creep yourself out? pic.twitter.com/6pK92nOkmG— ❄Mikki Kendall❄ (@Karnythia) January 28, 2018
Without further ado, here are a few of the strangest responses to that thread.
1. “There’s a baby in there.”
I was was watching a prek class while the teacher was out and this little girl walked up to my belly pointed and said "There's a little tiny baby in there. There's a little baby right there." I was pregnant but hadn't told my job.— Kita (@KitaMargarita) January 28, 2018
2. “I like you the best.”
My daughter was about 5 when she says you’re the best mommy I ever had. I said I’m the only mommy you’ve ever had. She looks at me and says no your the 3rd one but I like you the best😳— New Year Old Me (@daahlingnikki) January 28, 2018
3. “He’s waving at me!”
Walking with my 2-yo in a cemetery by our house. She says “mommy, who is that man in the red jacket by the stone house?” She pointed to a mausoleum. There was no one else in the cemetery. “He’s waving at me!” She waved back. “He’s coming over to talk!”— Kate, But Now 100% 2020er (@Ardeospina) January 28, 2018
4. “I don’t know how you do it.”https://twitter.com/tltroup/status/957460797625720833?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
5. “Do you smell it?”https://twitter.com/FemmeDigne/status/957649513736429568?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
Those are just the start of what has now turned into a very, very long Twitter thread that’s definitely worth a read if you have some free time. Now, it’s your turn: What’s the craziest thing your kid’s ever said?
