Childhood is a time of wonder, a time of curiosity about the world around us…and a time when we ask questions without any verbal filter whatsoever.
Kids do, in fact, say the darndest things, as these real questions (found in an amazing thread on reddit) from real kids illustrate.
From funny to profound, silly to terribly sad, what these kids asked will make you laugh, make you reach for the tissues, and in some cases make you realize that — Hey, wait a minute! — you’d like to know the answers, too!
If there’s one thing most parents are good at, it’s finding ways to stay entertained using anything and everything around the house. That was the case for Lilly and Leon Orson, creators of Cardboard Box Office, a blog that began after they accumulated a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving) and a baby (due to, well, you know how that stuff works).
With their social lives drastically altered, they wanted to find a way to make housebound weekends more fun, so they began building famous movie (and some television) scenes out of what they affectionately call their “favorite domestic junk.”
The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and “three individuals slowly losing their sanity.”
Back in 2013, zookeepers in Taipei, Taiwan’s zoo introduced a baby panda (merely one month old) to her mother for the first time and if you expect the meeting to be pretty cute, you’re highly underestimating it.
The cub is kept in a separate cage because zookeepers are worried that her mother might kill (or even eat) her, so there are a precarious few seconds as Mama wraps her huge jaws around baby’s head, but then it’s smooth sailing as she lifts her up and proceeds to give her the biggest panda snuggles ever.
Another Mother’s Day has come and gone, which means the cost of flowers has now been drastically reduced to affordable amounts and moms are right back to picking up where they left off — literally, in most cases.
And, whether their kids are young or old, many moms received a card. As you’ll see in these examples, some are better than others…
