It’s hard not to be in awe of children’s spontaneity. They often perform strange but funny things that will bring a smile to the faces of even the most serious adults. We discovered a whole thread where people share their kids’ clever ideas.

My younger sister not knowing the alphabet almost caused her to fail kindergarten.

In fact, she didn’t even try to learn it.

She replied, “I don’t need to learn my letters because I’m pretty,” when asked why.

When my friend’s daughter was younger, he tried to teach her to collect toys. He threatened to throw whatever was left on the floor after she failed to comply once. She took them and put them in the trash can for him.

My daughters are twins. “There are a lot of members in our family tree, and I’m probably the most handsome, don’t you think?” one of them said to me one day.

My 6-month-old was informed by my almost 4-year-old that she was just a figment of her imagination and that the entire universe was probably a dream the 4-year-old had.

During a well-child visit, my son responded to the nurse’s question about his diet by saying, “I think I eat too many vegetables.”

This week my son started second grade.

The postcards the school sent out a few weeks ago listed his teacher’s name and the date and time of the “open house.”

He acknowledged that he was happy to be in Mrs. So and So’s class when I asked, but also expressed concern. He replied, “What if he falls in love with me and wants to marry me?” when I asked him what scared him. When I mentioned my lottery ticket to my 6-year-old, he said, “If we win, can I get a million dollars? I’ll give it to the principal to close the school permanently.”

My seven-year-old daughter was adamant that our guests not enter her room for fear of seeing her medals (taekwondo belts and good grades). She was afraid they would believe she was famous.

I played cops and robbers with my niece who was about three years old and my son.

After placing me in the prison (couch) they left the room. My niece turned to face me as she was leaving with a deadpan expression and said, “Watch your back…” Then she just walked away.

Our cub will attend a private school, we chose. After passing a series of entrance tests, they had the main interview as their final exam. One of the easier questions she asked him was how to spell his name. He gave her a confused look before getting up to leave. “I don’t want to go to this school, the principal can’t even spell my name,” he added, turning to me.

My son informed me that he already knows the names of ten dinosaurs so he doesn’t need to go to school.

Growing up, my sister did. To celebrate her second or third birthday, my grandfather traveled for a few hours. My parents told my sister to go hug him as he was about to leave. They persisted even though she didn’t want to. Finally, she walked up to my grandfather and kicked him squarely in the leg. Recently, my 6-year-old son asserted his independence by telling me that I can’t dictate what he can or can’t wear because he’s free to follow “his own fashion.” Good good. They are shorts, sandals and one black sock.

My child, who was about six years old at the time, was bragging to a friend in the back seat about how he had dumped all his Chinese food on the carpet in his bedroom – food visible and all.

As my cousin was leaving a family gathering, he asked my little boy for a punch. My kid refused and my cousin said, “Come on, why no punching?” My boy, 5 at the time, looked him straight in the eye and said, “I don’t want to break every bone in your arm.”

Once, when my brother was 4, he went around the neighborhood and wrote his name on the garage door in really big letters with a permanent marker.
