Kids say — and write — the darnedest things! As far as we’re concerned, one of the best parts of sending your kid away to school for the day is that they learn to write — and then they use their newfound powers to create some of the best content in the world. A Redditor recently found a note written to God by his girlfriend when she was only 5 years old, and folks, it’s absolutely incredible.

You know that if they took the time to write it, it’s bound to be entertaining. Whether it’s a note to Santa or a list of their favorite toys, there’s something about kids’ writing that is always sure to tickle your funny bone.

Yep. That just about sums it up. Never before have we related so hard to something written by someone so young.

The fact that she wrote the entire thing in black crayon. The misspelled “Gog.” The black heart. It’s all just so, so perfect.

Like this note, from a girl who knows what we’re all really thinking when we’re forced to apologize. Sorry for nothing, suckers!

He doesn’t just want to have a hat. He wants to wear it, too. This kid is clearly going places. Like outside in the winter.

Genie: OK, Timmy, you only get one wish. Make sure it’s a good one. Timmy: No problem. I’ve been preparing for this for years.  

Let other kids leave milk and cookies out for Santa. Flynn knows what Santa really wants.

Little Emma has very specific tastes, but make no mistake — she’s not greedy. The secret to getting exactly what you want for Christmas is finding the perfect combination of specificity and brevity.  

His teacher probably wasn’t expecting to get a lesson in jumping to conclusions while correcting homework, but that’s exactly what happened.

To be fair, those “show your work” questions are always the pits anyway. And that drawing is probably pretty accurate!
