There couldn’t be a better quote than “kids say the darndest things!” In this case, kids drew the darndest things and inadvertently revealed behaviors their parents might prefer to keep away from the public eye. This list includes some of the most hilarious kids’ drawings ever!
There is really no better way to get called out than by your children who see you at your worst and your best. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that little eyes are watching you and yet they always are. This photo is one hilarious example of that. The mom’s transformation is particularly well documented. From how mom looks when she wakes up in total disarray with wide eyes and crazy hair to her “going out look” complete with red lipstick, eyelashes and pink high heels – this kid nailed it! We think this tiny critic might have a future in comedy one day.
Here we have one of those early elementary exercises where a child is learning how to compose complete sentences. While there was probably some context missing here, the kiddo filling out their homework took it upon themselves to give a creative and honest answer. When answering the question, “Who ate the most at the picnic?” the child answered, “My dad. He is chubby. He has a problem.” Ouch, well that’s one way to address a burgeoning weight problem, although the father in this equation would have probably preferred it not be addressed to his child’s teacher and class. If you can count on little ones for anything it is definitely the brutal truth.
World’s Greatest… Farter?!
Aw, how sweet. This little innocent child decided to make a card for his father that reads “World’s greatest father!” Oh, wait, he crossed out father and wrote “farter” instead. This is actually the perfect joke for dads, the world’s biggest connoisseurs of fart jokes. Even better is the tiny illustration which seems to show some kind of poisonous gaseous cloud along with a skull and crossbones poison symbol in the middle of it. Perhaps the kid who wrote this is on their way to one day become a dad joke master. If that’s the case, he’s definitely off to a fantastic start.
The Mom Fake Out
Like the previous card which started out super sweet and aww-worthy, this one also took a savage turn. “Thank you, mom, for being wonderful, caring… and for not making your meatloaf anymore.” Mom’s cooking must have been pretty horrible for it to be the subject of a card. On second thought, this card seems like it might have been made by a sneaky teenager. Either that or this young kid really hates meatloaf. Oh well, we’re sure that this mom was delighted to get a card no matter the occasion. At least her kid did recognize that she is also wonderful and caring!
A Little Too Honest
Most moms might indulge in a glass of wine in order to unwind from the stresses of a long week. This mom might partake in the activity a bit more frequently, as it is definitely something that her child has noticed. Much to this particular mom’s horror, their child decided to share their mom’s love of wine with the entire class. Luckily for the mom, we’re sure that if anyone will understand this it’s definitely a teacher. At least it will be a funny memory to look back on one day and we’re sure it was a pretty funny moment for the teacher as well.
The Realistic Note
This one is more of a note than a drawing, but the sentiment remains the same. Clearly, the two parents here are separated or divorced. For one, it’s really sweet that this little girl took the time to write her dad a note about how she and her brother miss him. It’s also pretty hilarious that she notes that although she would want her mom and dad to get back together, it’s not going to happen because “my mom doesn’t like you”. That about sums it up, doesn’t it? At least she is realistic about the situation!
All About Dad
For this drawing, a little kid is taking part in one of those “all about dad or mom” assignments. In this case, dad is the issue at hand. For the part of the assignment that describes what dad does for a living, this kid says he is simply an “employee” which is a pretty hilarious yet apt response. And for what dad enjoys doing, the answer is equally funny – “drinking”. But when your kid thinks that’s all you enjoy doing you might want to question whether you are taking part in drinking a little bit too much!
The Fart Files
This one again comes from the “fart files” and instead of the typical dad, this kid has drawn their mom totally letting one loose. Moms are typically a little bit more touchy about their farts so she was probably none too pleased about being drawn this way. Let’s hope this wasn’t one of those assignments that teachers end up posting on the wall outside the classroom. That might be a little more humiliating than the teacher alone seeing it, however, it would definitely give the rest of the school — especially all the other parents — a laugh.
Here is another assignment in which the child had to talk about their parent and describe what they do in their life. Most kids would probably write about their mom the doctor or their dad the mechanic, however, in this case the child talked a little bit more about leisure time. This kiddo said their mom sits around watching Ellen all day. While this is pretty hilarious, we’re sure that even if mom stays at home she does a little bit more than sitting around in front of the TV. Then again, who can help themselves when it comes to Ellen?
When asked what mom should do less of, many kids might say that they think mom should do away with punishments or that they should talk on the phone less. However, this kid suggests that mom should drink less wine. That probably means she’s seen her mom indulging quite a bit, so she might want to take her kid’s advice. At least her kid still drew her looking nice in a cute pink dress surrounded with hearts and pretty colors. This mom might want her kid to reveal a little less of her “wine nights” when she’s at school!
My Dad Is Eight
Here’s another one that isn’t exactly a drawing and yet is still so hilarious. Teachers often have little ones complete these forms because their answers are always funny. For instance, this girl thinks that her dad is “8 years old”, his favorite food is beer, he is funny when he farts and the two love to go to the dollar store together. Sounds like this little girl has a pretty good eye on her daddy and he undoubtedly got a huge kick out of it when she brought it home. Let’s hope they framed this one because it will be cute to look back on for years to come.
The Mommy-Daddy Difference
Evan created a beautiful drawing and of his mommy and daddy for his elementary school class. Can you spot the difference? Oh yes, of course, it’s that mommy has a cloud of “love” next to her while her dad has a different kind of gaseous cloud. You guessed it — another dad fart joke. Apparently, there is just something about dads and farts that go hand in hand. In any given household, it seems to be a common experience that fathers are always the most flatulent of them all. The teacher also responded by putting a pretty funny sticker on the paper which simply reads, “Wow!”
Money Makes The World Go Round
This cute card was created by Shira for her Aunt. In the card she thanks her Aunt, or “Tita,” for always loving her and taking care of her. Shira also says that she knows that her Aunt loves money, which already a pretty hilarious observation for a child. She continues, “But I have none at this time, SORRY.” Instead, she draws an emoji with money signs for eyes and also some money. Well, you know what they say, it’s the thought that counts. It’s clear that this little girl definitely cares for her beloved Aunt and would surely give her money if she had any at her young age.
The Evil Mom
Let’s hope this one wasn’t turned in to school because it would definitely raise some eyebrows. First, the child depicted an “evil snake” and it seems to have eaten an “evil mom”. The Evil Mom is then saying, “I don’t like people!” Yikes! This little kid was definitely none too happy with their mom when they went about drawing this picture. Perhaps this kiddo wanted a pet snake and mom said no. Whatever the case, we hope that they got over their idea of having an “evil mom” at least before they need to turn in another art project to class!
It seems like a lot of moms these days definitely enjoy imbibing in wine. Here is another from the “wine files”. This kiddo’s class writes down their daily news and what happened in their lives that was important to them. For this little boy, he got to go play with his friend Lucas but his mom also “got drunk”. Perhaps, she wasn’t actually drunk and just enjoyed a drink or two. It’s even funnier that the teacher responded with “Oh goodness me. It’s important for mom to let her hair down once in a while.” Although there’s a good chance the teacher probably totally relates to mom in this instance.
Ah yes, a new generational problem: social media. This child created a comic book strip for class and told some interesting truths about their parents. They wrote, “My dad is allergic to Facebook but my mom loves it!” It seems as though many men are not fans of Facebook although their better halves remain plugged into the social media stratosphere. It’s pretty funny that this little kiddo was already that paying so much attention to mom and dad to make such an astute observation. We can only imagine what social media will be like by the time this little kid is in a marriage of their own.
Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Parents
This drawing seems to be done on one of those kid menus they give you at restaurants to occupy the youngsters while you wait for your order. The drawing left behind for the waitress to find is pretty funny. This kid drew a wrestling ring complete with a WWE sign. Then, the kid made sure to label the two stick figures as their mom and dad. Clearly, Mom and Dad were not having the best dinner and were probably arguing a good bit. Through the eyes of a child, it might have seemed as though they were in their very own wrestling match. Either that or the kid is a huge fan of wrestling.
The Scary Joke
We hope this one is a joke. The caption at least definitely looks as though it was written by an adult. It reads, “Today I had a fun time mom and dad and the cat. Even the demon left us alone this time…” Yikes! Hopefully, this is just someone goofing around and not an actual Poltergeist-like situation. The “demon” in question actually resembles the scary character from the movie The Babadook, so perhaps it’s just someone’s twisted humor. Either way, imagine if you were a teacher and a child turned this drawing in. Someone’s definitely getting a trip to the school counselor!
Mommy Role Model
This kid drawing got a lot of traction across the Internet when it first went viral several years ago. While the child seems to depict the mom on a pole with people giving her money, the original person who posted it years ago actually said that they work at Home Depot. Apparently, the drawing is depicting the mom carrying some kind of tool (shovel, perhaps?) and people are spending their money at the store. Well, that was the “story” anyway. We bet the teacher who got this drawing had quite the laugh at this poor mom’s expense!
The Dad Science Project
This child is at the age where they are learning about solids, liquids, and gases in their science class. This might mean they were probably old enough to know better than to make a joke like this but they went for it anyway. Under the “gases” section they decided to depict a photo of their dad passing gas. Technically, they are right. It would be pretty difficult to figure out what to draw for a gas anyway. Even funnier is that in the background of the drawing is a person, presumably the child who drew this, shouting in displeasure. We wonder if this kid got points for their creative answer.
