The Ofnig (Orphanage) Might Be Getting More Crowded

Seven-year-old Olivia was jumping on the bed when her mom asked her to stop. She kept jumping, so her dad yelled at her.

Olivia responded in writing, handed this note to her parents, and ran to another room.


“I don’t know what to say but I want to be with an orphanage.”

Do you think an adult ofnig is a pub? I hope so.


Thanks to Thuy for sharing what Olivia wrote.

You should share, too. Submit an image of a child’s funny writing to either or
