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!

Cranny Envy

It’s not the size of the cranny, but how you use it, amirite?

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

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.

Who Thinks This is AWESOME?

This Jayden Kid is the Justin Bieber of Second Graders

Jessica submitted this piece from one of her students. In her words:

“I give my students a survey to complete at the end of the year. I use the information when I write my final report cards. This was from one of my little boys (2nd grade). Jayden was another second grade boy, and for a 7-year-old, he did have a lot of girlfriends!”

Moral of the story?

Being good at math doesn’t necessarily add up to more love from the ladies.

Mom, You’re Cooler than Squashed Possum!

kristen.roadkill

Kristen’s 9-year-old composed this ode to her awesomeness for Mother’s Day.

We can only imagine how teary-eyed Kristen was after reading it.

Teary-eyed from laughter, possibly, but teary-eyed nonetheless.

Thanks to Kristen for putting her modesty aside and sharing with the readers of SKW how she puts roadkill to shame. Check out her blog here. (SPOILER ALERT: No roadkill.)

You should share some funny kids’ writing with us, too! End-of-school time is a great opportunity to discover a treasure in a child’s backpack. (SPOILER ALERT: There may be roadkill.)

Email an image of the piece to either leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com or mcfadden.chase@gmail.com. Or to both if you’re feeling ambitious.

Don’t Mix Colors (or Words)

Melanie asked her 5th grade students to “be honest” with their assessments.

This artist received an A+ in Not Mixing Words.

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 mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

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

Or give you a ticket to Sex Gun City.

Whichever you prefer.

Gas Games Are Fun

alexis.6yo.pe.gas

Six-year-old Alexis likes PE because her teacher makes up fun games.

Not that gas in PE isn’t fun.

Remember the cool little scooters?

Any game involving those is a perfect fit for flatulence. After all, breaking a bit of wind might provide a slight boost in propulsion, and it makes a pretty terrific sound effect. (Just don’t leave any skidmarks.)

And if you didn’t want to get caught underneath the parachute before, just wait until someone pulls the ripcord on one under there!

Do you think they put that hole in the middle of the fabric for ventilation?

Thanks to Shelley for sharing her daughter’s note with Stuff Kids Write. It’s no stinker, that’s for sure.

Please send us funny samples of kids’ writing you catch wind of.
