But it’s not just the little ones that have funny things to say to us; we have funny things to say about our little ones! Have a read of this collection of humorous quotes and giggle along.
“Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut-up.” – Anonymous
While the author of this quote is unattributed, we know one thing for sure: After marveling at everything our kids say and do, sometimes all we want is a little peace and quiet, and to be left undisturbed!
“I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them.” – Phyllis Diller
Her punch lines paved the way for decades of funny ladies after her, but offstage life included being a mother to five beautiful children. Her comedy involved poking fun at her disdain for doing the housework, and for being a mother rushed off her feet. With five children, she wasn’t joking around!
“I grew up with six brothers. That’s how I learned to dance-waiting for the bathroom.” – Bob Hope
Bob Hope was a good friend of Phyllis Diller, and shared her love for self-deprecating humor and poking a bit of fun at life. He always knew different ways to look at life and this light-hearted look at growing up in a very big family is just one of them.
“If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.” E.W Howe
Many mothers cry when their kids grow up and go off to school—it’s a beautiful thing to see your firstborn in their school uniform and heading off on the bus. But once parents get used to having a few hours to themselves each day, the idea of summer holidays elicits tears as well—sad tears as they realize how occupied their day is going to be!
“Mothers all want their sons to grow up to be president, but they don’t want them to become politicians in the process.” – John F. Kennedy
President of the United States is one of the most prestigious job descriptions in the world, and mothers all over the country brim with pride when their children come home from school saying they want to be President. John F. Kennedy has a point, however—these pride-filled parents are not thinking that their kids will have to be politicians first!
“Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children and no theories.” – John Wilmot
John Wilmot admits the one thing all parents admit sooner or later: Adults have no more insights into life than their own kids do! Hopefully this list of top quotes has got you chuckling, instead of stressing out around the kids. With any luck, the kids will come up with some funny quotes of their own today to further bolster your mood.
