She Did What?! Wacky Toddler Stories

She Did What?! Wacky Toddler Stories

The beauty of motherhood is that along with the non-stop demands, there's also ample joy and hilarity. Circle of Moms members love to share wacky kid stories, and we've noticed that the toddler years seem especially entertaining for parents. Here's a sampling from our communities. Enjoy!

Public Undressing

From belly buttons to bottoms, body parts are a source of constant fascination and pride to toddlers. And as J.V. in Ontario reminds us, toddlers also enjoy comparing notes on those body parts with strangers: "She loves showing off her belly button. She'll lift up her shirt and show it to anyone who is interested. I caught her doing it with an old lady in the grocery store and when I got over to her, the old lady was showing hers off too. At that point, I just joined in. What else could I say?"

Literal Interpretations

Young minds can be very literal. As Carly E. shared, she was watching TV with her mother and 3 year-old daughter when an attractive actor came on screen. "I said 'Mom, you have to come and see this guy. He is so yummy!' My daughter turns to me in a serious tone and states, 'Mom, we don't eat people!'"

Funny Phobias

Strangers, the dark, bath time...most toddler fears don't raise eyebrows, but there are some that can't help but generate smiles. For example, the unusual phobia of Australian mom Fiona's son: "He is terrified of stickers (and sticky tape) being stuck to him or to his toys...I once stuck a cow sticker on one of his music toys...he would point and back away slowly while making this odd moaning/wailing noise." Kate C. also gets a kick out her daughter's odd fear: "My daughter is afraid of poop. She pooped in the tub once and the look of total terror on her face was priceless."

Talking Like Teenagers

"Nana, you have issues" and "Daddy, I love you...Can we go to Walmart now?" are just a few of the zingers that trip off the tongue of Melinda C.'s 3-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, Michigan mom Lisa B.'s daughter responds to scolding with surprisingly sassy language: "She put her hand up and said, 'Dude, calm down.'"

Creative Story Time

Seeing or hearing children's creative powers in action can give pro comedians a run for their money. Jen P.'s daughter delivered this imaginative story just after her third birthday: "Once upon a time when I was in mommy's tummy, I had a backpack and it had a flashlight and I could see her lungs and her blood in her tummy. And then there was a monster in her tummy and I killed it with the cannonballs that I had in my backpack. The End."

Have a funny kid story of your own to share?

Whether your child is speaking like an adult or fascinated by her own poop, Circle of Moms is a perfect place to share the hilarious (and simply wacky) aspects of parenting, and to enjoy a good laugh with other moms who can relate.
