Kids just do funny stuff....So do adults...so, share your funny stories involving you, a red head family member or friend!
I'd love to read them. Send it to me via my "Contact Me" page and if appropriate I'll post them here.
Here's a few cute stories to start off from my readers....
|"For years I couldn’t figure out why my sweet 5-year-old red-haired daughter came home from school smelling really sweaty like a school locker room and needing deodorant. (We lived in the United Kingdom at the time.) She’s too young for puberty, I’m thinking, and insisting on more baths! |
Found out years later that she and her friends used to avoid eating the mandatory tomato slices served for school lunches by hiding them under their arms and then quietly disposing of them outside near the playground somewhere during recess!
Ah...the mystery was solved.
Leave it to the creative redhead brain!"
|"Our young redhead teen daughter was told by friends that they had come home early one day and discovered their parents being amorous. Of course that sparked a lively discussion about parents being intimate. |
Well, our daughter promptly told her friends "Oh, they stopped that years ago!" When she shared this with us, my husband and I looked at each other, trying not to laugh. I responded, "We may be old and wrinkled but we weren’t dead!"
|"I was in line with my very young redhead at a local McDonalds one day. Standing in front of us was a very large, rough-looking biker in leathers and vest with a long black pony tail... a sight VERY unusual for this conservative neighborhood...|
After seeing this, pointing at him, my young ginger LOUDLY said, 'Mommy, why does that man have a ponytail?' People around politely looked at us, eyes wide and smiling, and fortunately the rough-looking biker in front ignored us... (maybe he didn't hear or was laughing??...I'm secretly hoping he had kids too...) Kids tell it like they see it"
|"Culture shock -- We had just moved to live in England and our 2 young redheads (ages 5 and 8) came home from their 1st day at school very excited. They'd been given some school supplies and proudly announced, "Mommy, they gave us new rubbers at school!" --- (Okay, for those of you born in US, ‘rubbers’ are erasers over there but slang for condoms in the US.) |
My jaw dropped, ready to go yell at the teacher, thinking: "What kind of school is this, giving out condoms to 5-year-old kids!??" ...then realized it was not what it seemed.... We may all speak English but there are some culture differences!! LOL !! We told this funny story to our kids when they got older because they didn't remember it."
....More funny stories to come !!.....
|"I didn’t know my 3-year-old redhead could imitate an tornado warning siren until one morning she threw herself down dramatically in front of the front door, kicking and screaming, to prevent her little playmate from leaving to go back home. She did NOT want her to leave!! |
Well, Grandpa was there watching and saw the tantrum, so Grandpa promptly threw himself on the floor too, kicking and screaming!. Well, that was such a sight to see her Grandpa making such a scene...my redhead watched with big eyes in shock, then laughed and promptly forgot why she was upset. Go Grandpas!!"
