A fun part of parenting is always having the right answer or teaching your kids something for the first time and blowing their minds.
That only lasts for so long, though.
I’m not there yet with my kids, but according to parents on Twitter, seven is the age kids start to have thoughts of their own that are possibly hilarious and profound on purpose.
7 is prime no filter age, as these tweets and memes show:
Disclaimer: Obviously some parents are full of shit, so don’t be surprised if a few of these end up in the Didn’t Happen dump this week.
7yo: How do you like my snowman?
Me: Why’s the carrot at—
7yo: He’s standing on his head.

My son asked my 7yo how she would survive a bear attack and she replied she would try to be his friend, thus making her the most adorable of my children but also the least likely to survive an encounter with an actual bear.

Being a parent teaches you a lot about yourself. For instance, this morning my 7yo told me that I’m not as funny as I think I am.

7yo was doing parkour over the furniture when he slammed into a door, got his jeans caught on the handle and was kind of dangling upside down and I don’t know if that’s all part of parkour but I clapped anyway

My 7yo’s toothbrush has a suction cup on the bottom, so she stuck it on the tile wall and tried brushing hands-free. *Wipes tear of pride*

My 7yo son had the most mature breakup!
7YO: BTW mom, I broke up with my girlfriend.
ME: everything ok?
7YO: yah. We just realized we like different things. Like, she likes to walk around and chat and I like to run around and play a lot. So we decided we should just be friends.

My 7yo: Why do you have a tattoo on your butt?
Me: It’s my lower back & lots of girls were getting tattoos there in the 90s.
Her: But why? Who did that to you?
Me: A tattoo artist near my college
Her: In college? (shaking her head) You made some bad choices, woman.
