Never underestimate your children. I myself have made that mistake too many times, but kids are more clever than you think. They are amazing at picking up on what you say and do, and later you find out that they heard and understood everything.
Kids being smart has upsides and downsides, but it’s always worth listening to what they have to say. Every once in a while, they’ll reveal something incredibly interesting.
That’s exactly what happened in this funny story. The ending had me in stitches – nothing cheers me up like a good joke!
Funny story (fictitious):
Little Johnny sees his dad’s car passing the playground and going into the woods. Curious, he follows the car, and sees daddy and aunt Jane passionately kissing and eagerly taking off each others’ clothes.
Johnny finds this so exciting and can barely contain himself as he runs home and starts to tell his mother excitedly.
“Mommy, Mommy, I was at the playground, and daddy and….”
Mommy tells him to slow down, but that she wants to hear the story.
So Johnny tells her. “I was at the playground and I saw daddy’s car go into the woods with aunt Jane. I went to look and daddy was giving aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her blouse, then aunt Jane helped daddy take his pants off, then aunt Jane laid down on the seat, then daddy…”
Asks the boy to stop
At this point, mommy cuts him off and said, “Johnny, this is such an interesting story, let’s save the rest of it for when we’re having dinner. I want to see the look on daddy’s face when you tell it tonight.”
3 hours later, the whole family is gathered at the dinner table. Finally, mommy asks Johnny to tell his story.
“Well, I was at the playground, and I saw daddy’s car go into the woods with aunt Jane. I followed them to see what they were doing, and then I saw how daddy gave aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her blouse.”
Johnny made a pause where his mom had interrupted him earlier, and looked at her. She smiled and nodded for him to continue.
The little boy said:
“And then aunt Jane helped daddy take off his pants, and then daddy and aunt Jane did that same thing mommy and uncle Jack used to do when daddy was in the Army!”
The mom fainted.
Moral of the story: Sometimes you might want to listen to the full story before you interrupt… 😉
