Because Sharks, That’s Why.

William is reading The Battle of Riptide, the second book in the Shark Wars series.

His teacher requires him to complete a reading log question after he finishes his daily home reading.

Yesterday’s question asked this:

Kids Notes

Because a shark on land is a dead shark. That’s why.

Nailed it.

Dads and Grandpas: Bring on the Nair!



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!

Hot Wives and Pop Machines


Thanks to Ariane for sharing this gem from her 6-year-old!

We have no doubt that he’ll one day become the lead singer for an 80’s hair band.

#$%*ing Toilet Humor

When Tara’s stepdaughter was seven, she wrote about how the world needed to change.

SKW Toilet Graffiti

Translation: “I would really like to change the world. I think we should put more trees and more water, and there is too much dirt, too. Stop writing ‘fuck’ in toilets. Thank you.”

We couldn’t agree more.


Thanks to Tara of Love from Tara for the awesome submission. If you have something funny that your child or someone else’s kid wrote, please send a picture of it to mcfadden(dot)chase(at)gmail(dot)com or leanneshirtliffe(at)gmail(dot)com.

Who Thinks This is AWESOME?


That’s a Hell of a City!


Six-year-old Connor wrote about his family’s trip to Six Gun City in his “What I Did This Summer” journal.

Judging by that waterslide, it looks like a really fun place.

Who knows? Sex Gun City might be fun, too.

No word on what the waterslides are like there.


Thanks to Erica, Connor’s mom, for sharing his summer memory. Check out her blog here.

Please share your image of a funny piece of children’s writing by submitting to or

If you do, we’ll let you go down that slide.

Or give you a ticket to Sex Gun City.

Whichever you prefer.

Arghhhhh You Sure That First Answer’s Incorrect?

Thanks to Jen for sharing this pic of her 7-year-old son Ty’s social studies test.


First off, we can all agree the teacher using an X to mark that first definition incorrect is ironic, right?

We can also agree that answer would have never been marked wrong in Pirating 101. (And by the way, in Dora the Explorer 101, the only acceptable response would be, “Loud, incessantly-repetitive thing that annoys the frickin’ hell out of anyone older than five.”)

Ty, your thinking is the real treasure here.

Well played, matey. Well played.

A Baby Story: Grandma Gets Brutally Honest


When 7-year-old Nicolas was born, it was really awesome.

New world? Discovery? Peeing?

Really cool.

Your grandmother comparing your swaddled, tiny newborn self to E.T.?

Not quite as cool.

Thanks to Tina, the alien’s mom, for sharing with SKW.

Really cool.

No Wonder Those Bugs Look So Happy

Jan is a kindergarten teacher. She sees lots of great stuff kids write.

But Jan’s own 5-year-old son brought this one home from school. In her words:

“Glad to see phonics is working. I’m a proud mom.”

You should be, Jan.

In this case, Ii is for Impressive.


If you see an impressive example of stuff a kid wrote, snap a pic with your smartphone and share it with the followers of SKW! Please email to either or

Thanks, and happy Isexing to all!

Chase and Leanne
