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.

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.

Turning Up the Heat (On Dad)

We at SKW hereby officially declare this note from 9-year-old Ryan to his father as the most convincing, guilt-inducing argument for plugging in a fan in the history of pleas to parents from their children for electrically generated air circulation.

Man, can those close-to-suffocating, very-nearly-heat-strokin’ first born sons lay on a guilt trip, or what?

Happy Beerthday, Papa!

Don’s 5-year-old daughter made this birthday card for her papa.

It really captures everything a papa could hope for on his birthday.

Family? Check.

Bar? Check.

Laughter? Check.

Hamburger? Check.

Attentive wait staff? Check.

Music? Check.

Good beer? Check.

Happy birthday, indeed.

On behalf of SKW’s followers, a toast to Don, his daughter, and Papa! With good beer, of course. (Are there bad beers?)

Thanks for sharing, Don!

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.
