Dads and Grandpas: Bring on the Nair!

hairy

 

It’s probably safe to assume that Uncle Jeff has a hairy chest and arms, as well.

**************************

Thanks to Jessica for sharing her 7-year-old’s astute, concise observations detailing the only real meaningful difference between males and females.

Speaking of being observant, this is a great time of year to discover some hidden gems in your children’s backpacks as you decontaminate and disinfect clean them out. Please consider submitting these treasures to Stuff Kids Write! (No, we’re not referring to the rock-hard, half-eaten cheese sticks; we mean the humorous school assignments.)

And have a terrific Father’s Day, all you hairy beasts out there! Just don’t go shedding all over everybody!

A Sole-ful Confession

Max Note

 

Thanks to Thom for sharing this confessional note courtesy of his 4-year-old (with a possible assist from his preschool teacher).

Max’s preschool teacher. Not Thom’s.

When Parents “Wrestle” and Kids Write Notes

Catherine, of The Dabels Divulge, shared what went on at her house one morning.

The man and I were busy “wrestling” and locked our bedroom door. Our daughter kept knocking, saying she wanted in. We told her, “GO AWAY, WE’RE SLEEPING!”

And then this note comes flying in under the door.

So of course I checked yes and unlocked the door.

The things you have to do for a Pepsi these days.

Guilt and Attention: a seven year old’s arsenal

A long time ago, when Caity was a wee girl of seven, she wrote her mom a note.

Caity, now an adult, recently discovered this relic. “It looks like I threw something and hit one of my siblings, earning a spank from Mom,” she explains. “Then I pulled out all the stops to try to get attention, make her feel guilty, apologize, and use sarcasm. Oh, childhood!”

Sounds like everyday in my house.

 Guilt Letter to Mom Post Spanking

Actual Translation: Mom, you scratched me when you spanked me. I know you hate me, you can tell me that. Anyway, can I call Dad? I have a feeling you’ll say No. Now what am I gonna do? Your stupid daughter, Caity. P.S. Enjoy the rest of the show. P.P.S. I didn’t mean to do that. Because no one knew where it was gonna land!! P.P.P.S. I feel sick. :( XOXOXO….

Metaphorical Translation: Mom, we’re little sh*ts. I won’t be surprised if you open a bottle of wine. I will be surprised if you wait until after dinner.

Thanks to Caity for the submission. You can find Caity at her blog, Readviews.

P.S. – I Definitely Know I Don’t Like Mom’s Meatloaf

Sometimes kids write in strange places.

Thanks to SKW reader Tina for submitting this awesome piece. She explains:

I found this note while moving. I’ve had that table for about 8 years and never knew it was there!

The unanswered question: Who wrote this?

Based on the sentiment expressed, we can at least narrow it down to only those kids who’ve ever had parents.

I love you but…

Eight-year-old Vivian keeps a notebook in the backseat of her family’s car.

“For emergencies,” she says.

Evidently she had an emergency last week. While stopped at a red light, she handed her mom this note:

A Dog: Every Kid in the Universe (Including Aliens) Should Have One

Read this manifesto letter and decide for yourself, but we’re pretty sure that 9-year-old Rylan — of Lego portfolio fame — would like to have a dog.

Your sorrowful son? Talk about twisting the canine dagger.

Thanks to Travis and Suzie — Rylan’s heartless parents — for sharing this masterpiece of wanton kid-inflicted parental shame inducement with SKW.

Things Really Went Downhill in 2nd Grade

And my 8-year-old’s other moms?

Total trolls. Really.
