Stuipid Gardening

You gotta love an 8-year-old who reads history.

You gotta love an 8-year-old who brings history to his backyard.

In the words of his dad, Lloyd Rang:

Cameron read that the ancient Romans would insult basil to make it grow better. So, out of love and concern, he put up this (somewhat ironic) sign:

Now excuse me, I’m off to swear at my #$%&ing peonies.

~

Cameron’s writing has appeared here twice before. I can’t help but adore this kid even though I’ve never met him. Please check out a touching post, How Our Kids Re-Write Us, and a hilarious one, When Kids Try Hot Sauce.

Thou Shalt Not Steal (or I’ll Tell Mom!)

Sometimes, you just have to take a stand against the tyranny of a sister.

And if that doesn’t work, write a note to your mom telling on her.

Thanks to Megan for sharing this detailed incident report from her son.

The Sun’ll Come Out… Tomorrow?

We all have ’em…

But few of us ever have the foresight to post a sign on our bedroom door alerting others to the fact it’s the worst day of life. By far.

And including a hand-drawn emoticon to further drive home the point and alert potential non-readers to the fact? Next-level stuff, for sure.

Thanks to Anji for sharing her son’s sun’s status update.

If he’d drawn a “Like” box, we’d have checked it for sure.

Hos Your But Crack?

Tracey and her daughter were outside playing.

Tracey fell down and landed on her rear end.

Tracey’s daughter thought it was hysterical.

Later, 5-year-old Hannah wrote a note to check on the status of her mom’s posterior.

Thanks for sharing, Tracey. We hope your but crack is doing bater.

No I Amn’t!

My 8-year-old took time from his busy morning routine of slurping cereal and moving as slowly as humanly possible to print this label for his 6-year-old nemesis brother last week as they ate breakfast.

Not surprising. Siblings fight. It’s natural. Kids even write poems about it.

What was surprising — at least to the two combatants —  is how much their dad enjoyed it. So I thought I’d share.

Your welcme.

Having Fun With Family Axing Turkeys

December has arrived, but here’s a quick recap of November compliments of my 7-year-old son Nolan (and his backpack):

Not sure whether that’s supposed to read “Enjoying family” or “Ignoring family.”

And for the record, our family will go ax a Christmas tree in coming weeks, but we’ve yet to bond while decapitating poultry.

That would be fowl.

Holy Gwockomoly! This Birthday Card is Be. A. Utiful.

A card — particularly the homemade variety — can be a gift in and of itself.

Like this one.

MW, my 7-year-old nephew, composed this handcrafted masterpiece for his mom on her birthday. It’s beyond words.

But here are a few anyway:

1. Sydney is the dog. No mention of MW’s younger brother, but he undoubtedly loves his mama, too.

2. Mother and son both have beautiful eyes. True story. Probably genetic.

3. Correctly spelling “beautiful” — twice — is impressive at any age.

4. My sister-in-law really does make the best gwockomoly.

5. Nothing says “happy birthday” like hearts. And bananas.

*****

Thanks to MW’s dad for sharing this beauty, and now it’s your turn.

It’s letters-to-Santa season! We’ve already received several, and we’d love to share your submission with the readers of Stuff Kids Write, as well.

Remember, ’tis the season of giving, and a laugh is an easy gift to give. Plus it requires no wrapping. So send your submission to stuffkidswrite@gmail.com today!

Children’s Birthday Invite Blooper

There are few things that get a bigger chuckle than innuendo. Often, it’s the slip of the pen, the change of a single letter.

Jessica Buttram knows this. A few weeks ago, she was working on birthday party invites for her daughter’s first birthday. Her seven-year-old son, Bug, wanted to try writing a few invitations.

So he did. In the process, however, Bug misspelled “party.”

Yes, do tell your siblings about this panty. And I’m sure it will be a rockin time…

Ode to kids like Bug who keep us young.
