You may not be aware of it, but when seemingly innocent items like glitter, paint, toys, and even snacks are combined with mischievous kids, all of these substances are seriously destructive. But don't worry; children don't need to get their hands on any of that to cause some serious trouble. This compilation of people's kids shows how sometimes the little ones take things way too far all on their own. But lucky for you, they're not yours, so you can just laugh along with no responsibility. If you do have kids, just enjoy seeing the mess other people's kids are making.
Kid vs. The Fountain
Someone took this photo of a shocking moment when a young girl was blasted into the air and flipped over by a water jet after stepping on a fountain somewhere in Mexico. We are wondering what kind of water pressure this fountain has, and, honestly, if whoever installed it could be sued. We feel bad for the poor kid, but is it okay to laugh at the photo? We'll pretend the mom caught her before the jet stopped. That'll help us feel okay with laughing.
Considering every kid would definitely feel excited to play with the water fountain, it’s better not to leave them alone near this one.
Not Everything Brown Is Chocolate
Bodybuilders use fake tan or oil on their bodies to highlight their chest, arm, torso, and leg muscles to the maximum. And the poor kid thought he could taste some chocolate. The kid must've thought he could eat a chocolate leg. Look at his little face embedded on the bodybuilder's leg; the little guy even got his teeth imprinted on the bodybuilder's thigh.
Or maybe he just wanted to hug dad after the show? Nah, we like the idea of them being strangers and the kid wanting chocolate.
Dog: 1, Kid: 0
Here is a smart dog in action, and he appears to be smiling in the first picture. He wanted to share the float, but the human fell off, and that's obviously not the dog's fault. The golden pup was probably asking to share the float for a long time before finally just hopping on. It's not his fault the child doesn't know how to share, right? We hope this child learned his lesson that sharing is caring.
Imagine wearing a fur coat in the summer! Shame on that kid for not offering the dog the float first! Next time make sure your dog has a floating toy to sit on.
Monday Mood Be Like
It is perfectly understandable. Any adult out there can easily relate to this picture and feel for the poor kid. She's done and just wants to have a good naptime. Who doesn't want to sleep, especially in class? However, nowadays, it's challenging for the kids to handle their daily schedule of studies, learn new stuff, play, and have enough sleep. So, she might have no other choice left than to sleep on a mat during a dance class.
We must admire her priorities, which she has set at such a young age. It shows that kids can sleep anywhere, anytime, without thinking about the consequences.
Time For A Face-Off
The resemblance is uncanny, and actually, he nailed it. This is someone's son proving those mannequins are ridiculous. Based on this one pic, we believe that kid will be a great entertainer in the future if he chooses that path. If not, at least his family and friends will enjoy the comedy. Seriously - he even has the downward jazz hands perfected for a final hilarious touch.
An actual human imitating this ridiculous mannequin pose proves how silly these fashion displays are. This is the funniest expression and example of how they make mannequins stand in the window. He can be a model for that store, far better than the original one. Enough of Avant-garde poses by models and mannequins; they do nothing to help sell. They are hideous.
She's a Grape and She's Sour About It
This looks cute, but the little kid probably disagrees, as is evident from her facial expressions. No doubt, that's a very creative and inexpensive costume. Then again, it's not convenient for a kid to wear such a costume made up of balloons as they can't play any game or even sit or walk properly because of the fear that the balloons might blow up. That probably explains her distressed facial expression.
It seems as if she's saying, "I can't put my arms down." Kid, we feel you! The only advantage is that the costume will protect her if she falls.
Nothing To See Here
Nothing to see here! Nothing sinister is happening at all. Maybe this girl will grow up to become a secret agent or a ruthless killer. Perhaps this happened right after "Take Your Child to Work Day," and that leaves us wondering - what do her parents do? And why did she decide to waterboard her teddy bear? We're guessing he refused to tell her where all the unicorns live.
What secrets does she want out of that poor fluff baby? Is she asking, "Tell me, did you steal my candy? Confess now or prepare to die."
Be Patient, Kid. You'll Get There One Day
The poor little guy just dropped his pants before realizing it's too high; he must have been in a hurry. This picture has that existential crisis vibe. He looks clever and is probably figuring it out: "If I hold it at a 45-degree angle and apply 10psi from 3 steps back, I think I can make it". Maybe he can try to do a quick Mario jump. We can clearly see the look of hopelessness even with his back turned.
He would probably prefer to stand there and pee on the wall than have to wait another moment. We hope someone rescued him soon after this photo was captured.
Hang In There
Such incidents mostly happen when the kids are left alone at home or parents are busy doing house chores. We love how sympathetic (look at the smiles, though) the helpers are. The first (and most important) thing one should do in these situations is not to take cameras out for pictures. They just want to embarrass the kid later. Kiddo, it’s easy to go in, but it’s challenging to get out. The dad is chilling, and his smile says, “I know where he gets it from.”
The kids are curious about so many things in life, so maybe he just wanted to try if it fits well or not. Here they all are so calm, and so is the kid. We bet it isn't the rescuers' first time out in that house.
Baby Mind Blown
His brain is clearly entangled right now. The baby must be thinking," I thought we were reading a bedtime story! This is not it!" The kid's face explains it all. Well, we guess this dad believes it's never too early to start teaching your little ones quantum physics. The baby might not understand anything, but dad's definitely enjoying it. And who knows, maybe it'll pay off in the long run.
This can be a perfect science baby gift for a future genius as it introduces basic scientific concepts and STEM to even the youngest scientist. Kids love to explore, so it’s better to start this drive as early as possible. On the other hand, maybe we should give them a break in their childhood as they are going to do this for the rest of their lives.
You Reap What You Sow
This picture became meme material for obvious reasons. We wonder what this kid's thought process was because this was never going to end well. We knew that the moment he stuck the stick between his bike's front wheel. Mistakes are the only way to learn a lesson, but this is indeed the hard way! The person who's taking pics could have warned him, but that would have deprived us of a hilarious meme. We feel that this kid might make false insurance claims when he is an adult.
Well, now crying over a self-inflicted drama is of no use. Then again, we adults do that all of the time.
It Smells Like Embarrassment
"Let's get closer to nature," this kid thought for the final time ever. She might have stopped to smell the flowers or check how gravity works, but she ended up faceplanting into the dirt instead. This is something that has happened to almost every kid, and it's just as funny every time. There is a kind of beauty to faceplanting so spectacularly. Full on, no holds barred, face-in-the-dirt. Beautiful.
We all should take our time to stop and faceplant into some flowers. When was the last time we acted like kids and not adults?
World Seems Upside Down
Do not be alarmed. The "upside-down child" is a natural and common occurrence in all classrooms. Oh, you didn't realize there was a kid upside down in the back of this photo? You thought the point was just this cute little boy in his blue vest? Well, we don't blame you. But this time around, the reality is much better. We bet this funny guy in the background got a good chuckle out of you once you spotted him.
This is also a sure sign that some students require more of the teacher's attention and patience as every class has one of its kind. Kids do such weird stuff when they get bored in class. Another funny thing is that other students in a classroom seem blissfully unaware of the upside-down kid among them.
Fire The Toddler Cannon
"I have an idea; let's stuff little Timmy down the cannon!" Has anyone ever seen such a breathtaking photobomb? Well, it's pretty common for the youngest kid to bear such acts in or outside of the house. Maybe it's the duty of the older siblings to do this to the youngest. This usually happens when siblings are annoying at some point, and the elder ones take advantage of their parents not being there and punish the little ones.
We are wondering how they will get him out if he gets stuck. It might be that cannons are filled with concrete, only a foot or so of barrel empty, fun for a toddler, but no one bigger will fit. So, hopefully, it won’t be dangerous unless it’s an actual cannon and someone will push the trigger button.
Baptism Or Exorcism?
Pew Pew Pew. That's the holy water gun. Has anyone ever seen a Priest baptizing a baby using a water pistol? This is so funny because it's not even trying to be funny; they're serious about it. This pandemic has got us doing some weird stuff. It was staged for fun at St Mark's Catholic Church, and we just really hope the priest didn't shoot the kid's eye out with his holy weapon.
It can also be called Baptism in COVID style because they have maintained enough distance. We just hope the baby wasn't traumatized.
Sibling Rivalry Is Real
This is the perfect picture for describing older siblings and their dominating nature: an older sister giving her newborn sibling the finger. Maybe the parents didn't notice it until they looked at the picture later. Baby's face says it all. We are wondering just who would teach a toddler that gesture! It seems like today's kids are very clever and learn everything in their surroundings ridiculously fast. We can't get anything past them!
Well, someone's not happy about no longer being the only child. So, the little girl is taking effective measures to tell the baby who is the actual boss from the beginning!
And This Was The Last Time They Saw Little Billy
Has anyone ever heard of "Attack of the Bubbles?" This happens when parents let their kids make their bubble baths. And with that, the family found the easiest way to clean the bathroom, do the laundry, and clean little Billy by simply dumping all of it in the tub at the same time. Kid clean, tub clean, tiles clean, floor clean, it's a win-win situation! The kids' expression shows he's scared and potentially asking for help.
Kids are always curious to try something new but weird, and then they have to bear the consequences. Well, now the entire bathroom is clean. So, it can be converted into a disco by adding some disco balls, laser pointers, and music.
And Just Like That, She Baptized Herself
The kid is like drowning in the water, but Daddy's hands aren't anywhere near the kid or the water! The other parent is taking a picture because that is what matters the most. This must be the first time for Daddy to witness such a thing, and that's why he looks so confused. Dad's facial expressions are priceless. What would happen when anyone handed that giant bottle to a toddler? We can just imagine the toddler insisting on doing it on her own and, of course, learning a big lesson after.
The dad looks like there has been some permanent damage. It's like face wash and refreshment, conveniently in one bottle! As if flying wasn't bad enough, now they have a wet (and likely grumpy) child.
That's Not Creepy At All
Is that kid wearing dentures? Because those don't look like baby teeth, and they are whiter than anything else in the picture. We seriously can't believe this is a real photo. We can, but we don't want to because that makes it really scary. We've never seen a potentially cute baby look so creepy, to put it mildly. It's like Chucky the doll came to life.
Does anyone know how to tell when the toddler is possessed? Just look at those tiny yet frightening hands and rolled out eyes as if he is planning to do something evil. Oh, we are scared now.
Trying to be the bigger person when dealing with a drama lover, and they just won't quit. This little girl tried to out-stretch stringy cheese. We are wondering what kind of cheese this is made of! Maybe Mozzarella Cheese, or we would say that's the best Mozzarella Cheese Stick ever. It looks like that little girl is having the best time of her life. Are we immature for wanting to do the same thing now?
Parents always prefer to capture such funny moments of their kids instead of stopping them from doing something weird. Perhaps they would have done the same in their childhood, so now they can’t say no to them as well.
Trick Or Treat?
It looks like a great costume from the movie Spirited Away. Whoever dressed her like that has great taste in movies. She nailed the look enough to frighten the other class fellow pretty well. Is it the mask or the makeup that traumatizes other kids for life? Well, only one kid is in costume? So it’s not Halloween? What’s with that bag! Though that completes the look. We don’t know whether it’s evil, but the kid in costume looks so calm.
That’s a great idea for dressing up kids for any Halloween Party. Simple yet effective enough to spread the horror. When there is no mask, one can do horrible makeup to add creepiness.
Perfectly Captured Shot Of The Year!
Oh, thank goodness they paused it. While we don't like seeing children get hurt, this is perfect timing and shot! Just think of how many times they had to knock that girl off the swing to get this one perfect shot. The poor girl already has a grimace of pain even though she hasn't hit the dirt yet. Maybe she already knew how it was going to end. Well, it should be the cover photo of 1 Second Before The Disaster collection. Hoping the little one was okay, but this is an epic pic!
They couldn’t have planned anything this perfect. That’s like a millisecond before. Ouch! While we take thousands of planned photos, unexpected photos like this one take the cake.
We Don't Like to Judge During Playtime but...
This is not how the parents imagined little Susie to use the Easy-Bake Oven. It looks like the future serial killer in the making. We wonder what the thought process behind this was because her evil smiles tell us it was a pre-planned murder. She is like an adorable little Annabelle, or one could say that she is the young Mrs. Hannibalina Lecter. If Gordon Ramsay had been there, he would've said, "What are you so proud of? The baby is still raw."
Her thumbs-up sign full of excitement shows how proud she is after frying the baby doll's head in the frying pan.
Is It Snoop Dogg's Son?
One can say that this baby is a future chef. Or maybe the baby is just enjoying its time in mom's womb as he must have had something delicious at dinner. Did they call her Mary Jane? The baby will probably be like: 'I have learned this from you, Mom". He must have started learning earlier, wondering what he would be like when he was young. Suitable for the parents; they got to know about this earlier. They have got the perfect picture for their child to show how he was like, even in his mom's womb.
Since it looks like the baby is smoking, it could be because the mother smokes. However, if that is not the case, we are super curious to know how this child will be when he/she grows up.
There Can Be Only 1!
Thor and Loki as toddlers, but the big question is, which is which? It looks like they are twins, but one of them has temper issues. And this is the reason why there are more single children in this world. Maybe it is because of a dispute over toys. It’s common among kids of the same age living in one house. They do have some jealousy against their siblings and just want to take everything from them.
It is a perfectly-timed picture, and the game is going to be over in a few seconds. Parents prefer to capture such funny moments instead of asking the kids to stop behaving like this. Perhaps they want to show them their picture to embarrass them in front of others in the future.
Side Effects Of Pandemic
Here is an answer to the question of how to fit an adult mask on an infant? The pandemic has left us with many weird things and new experiences. This is disturbing and hilarious at the same time. It is still better to use it for a short interval of time rather than being unmasked. At least it is better to have a mask like this one instead of no mask at all.
This picture was clicked in China and went viral after that. Parents can take this advice to try whatever works with their kids.
This little girl decided to show just how much she loved her dad on Father’s Day. And that there, folks, is the personification of mixed feelings for her father. We are sure he LOVES her to DEATH right now too! So he can’t be furious about this, right? Maybe he can keep that car and let her drive it to college when she’s 16. On the bright side, she’s a very good speller and has legible handwriting. A kid that age knows that such scratches are bad, and we doubt they’d be able to write that legibly with a screwdriver. We can smell some chalk.
Can anyone else detect a triumphantly evil grin on that sweet little face! What would anyone do if their child did this to their car? Well, parents should always expect the unexpected from their children.
They Should Have Lifeguards at These Places
Who didn't see that coming? It won't be wrong if we laugh at this, right? We love this one because the kid fell (which is super hilarious), and no one got hurt. The Dad should have held the little girl properly to avoid this fall. It's only foam rubber, so hopefully, she will be okay. So did the Dad later go home without her and say, "Honestly, I lost the child in there. It was hopeless to find her."
A lesson for every parent out there: take your kids to this place if you want them to learn life lessons.
Monday Face Be Like
Oh, the Irony! Apparently, someone didn't get the memo. We love the "Ouch" written on the cover at the bottom right. Also, we love the seriousness of this kid rather than a fake smile. If kids hate school, it should be shown and expressed rightly. The kid is so done with everything. Most of the kids are like this when the school has to take a picture for a magazine or something, then teachers try hard to bring a smile, but few kids are stubborn.
We would proudly display this picture, front and center, in the one place in the house where it would be the most noticed. We would never take it down, no matter how old our child gets.
Welcome to 80's cartoons. The toddler has an existential crisis, and it looks pretty depressing. We are wondering who would have written such a book. And who sees their baby crying and their first thought is 'I must get loads of pictures'? However, we get it because it's just like preparing your youngster for the real world. They need to know the world is not a bed of roses.
It's strange that the children's books are way darker than they should be for kids. This is a sad book that can make kids cry.
Artist at Work
It is pretty good at this age, and that too for someone who’s a beginner? We love the smiling sun and the addition of clothes (so thoughtful) in her painting. It shows how creative she is! She has also got the basic pose right, and we can clearly see the pretty good resemblance between the stature and the art. Kids love to explore their interests and find new hobbies for them. It’s always good to let them be by appreciating them instead of excessive criticism. Art is art; one should have the right eye and perspective to see it.
Well, if she keeps on learning with such dedication, she’s going to ace it one day. We should appreciate the positive vibes she’s spreading through her art.
Hello, Is Anybody There?
The little boy is looking at his parent straight up like, "Man, you better stop playing with me!" Why do parents keep clicking pictures in such situations instead of doing something else? That look of betrayal on the kid's face is pure gold. If there is a camel or llama, hiding may be the best policy. They can be feisty! Is the camel saying, "Sir, excuse me, sir, do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior?"
Or maybe it wants to talk about the car’s extended warranty. The top half of the head almost looks like an Arabian horse.
Anything For food
This pic is hilarious, terrifying, and embarrassing, all at the same time. We should appreciate her courage and persistence. She is terrified but still trying her best to save the food. Well, who doesn’t love food? The kids especially never want to share their food with anyone. They do fight till their last. It is a perfectly reasonable reaction because her parents will be paying for her therapy for years to come. Some people might think this would’ve never happened if she had used her right hand to eat. Is it getting the food, or does the little fellow want a hug?
We wonder if anyone has ever seen a better picture of food struggle, and that too at such an age when the opposing party is a green iguana.
"Daddy, I'm Right Here! "
This image has provided us with the worst yet cute baby face swap ever. When the dad tried to do an adorable face swap with his baby, it didn't go well. Poor kid as she gets to see how she would look like a ghost. This is what happens when the mother leaves the children with the dad. One wonders how he introduces her daughter, something like, "Meet my adorable daughter, Oven Face."
Mommy, where do babies come from? The baby oven, of course, you silly. One could say that it means the baby is going to become a hot head when she grows up.
Holding On To Dear Life
This kid seems to be struggling to hold on as long as he can for dear life. This doesn’t look like a secure grip. Well, gadget arms are definitely needed here for this poor little kid. However, that’s not smart because the child should be in front of him and wearing a helmet and closed-toe shoes as well. One could say that the kid is literally living life on the edge. We are praying that the kid stays there till the end of the trip instead of falling somewhere because of a jump.
We'll just pretend that we know for a fact that he made it home safe. That'll help us feel less guilty about giggling at this photo.
Someone Should Send This to the Company That Made This Chair
The parents almost pissed themselves laughing when this happened (after checking the munchkin was ok, of course). Yeah, and after they ran to get a camera as well. Or another more suitable interpretation is that the kid routinely rocks in the chair. Parents routinely warn the kid not to rock the chair. The kid continues to rock, ending up in this situation. This being the 21st century, a camera-equipped cellphone is immediately at hand, and a picture is swiftly taken. The chair is extremely well padded, and the only thing injured must be his pride.
Parents will bring this up for the rest of this kid's life. Dinner and gravity got together to harass the poor kid. At least it wasn't on the ceramic tile kitchen floor, and he got saved because of the carpet.
Just Let Her Be
This little girl here is channeling her inner ying-yang dilemma. Maybe she can lift up her leg and look like a flying maniac. Don’t we agree that she seems like Dora with plastic surgery? This is something almost every kid has tried to do in their childhood. Whenever parents take the kids shopping, they have to be a little dramatic to get whatever they demand. She looks like a perfect symmetrical kid who’s about to start her pole dance.
As we don’t know the exact situation behind this picture, we are only guessing that she was throwing tantrums as per her facial expressions.
Whether You Like It Or Not
It looks like trolling level 2.0 as she seems quite irritated. This usually happens among siblings as one of them does exactly what irritates the other. She would have taken it away and beat him over the head with it. Well, the joy of being a younger sibling speaks out loud here. Still, we can hear “Mom,” who’s surely on her way to rescue her. Maybe this is what happens when your elder sister picks on you, and you are in a band.
She would have taken it away and beat him over the head with it long ago. However, musical instruments are expensive; mom and dad probably wouldn't appreciate big sister breaking them.
Kid, You’re Grounded
Look at her bright smile as if she's very proud of whatever she has done to her younger sibling. However, the alarming thing is just how much magic marker was around the kids who were alone. We are hoping that the baby still has working eyeballs. We wonder how they have no supervision at all. It looks like these two were left unsupervised for at least 10 minutes. We all know the safe limit is about 2 minutes.
The marker looks like it's washable, but it will probably still look like he got bad tattoos. Probably she was trying to mark her territory as an elder sibling.
That’s Gonna Be Bad
We should appreciate the picture, which was taken 1 second before the disaster and a lot of crying. It looks like tackling the problem of overpopulation at a very young age. He’s about to learn a quite painful lesson for his whole life. Well, that slide is just inviting a claim. Frankly speaking, that’s the worst design of a slide ever, and they need to name it the nutcracker. One thing we know for sure is that it is definitely not the right slide for young boys; otherwise, it will leave a mark.
We should be careful which path we should choose as our life would depend on that in such scenarios. So why do parents even let the boys take this slide? When did childhood vasectomy become so public?
