Dumb things kids do
 
So my daughter got stuck in her room today. She decided to sit in her clothes hamper and ended up butt down in a tall plastic hamper with her feet up around her shoulders....kind of bent in two. She had locked her door before she attempted this feat of stupidity so she was locked in her room and couldn't get out of the hamper to unlock the door so help could get in. We did unlock the door and get in there, but I must admit that we took pictures for future taunting. BTW, my daughter is 10, not a toddler.:sad2:




Then my 8 year old son decided we laughed so hard he had to try it in his own hamper. :headache:

Why do kids do such dumb things? What did your kids do today? (please tell me I'm not the only one)

Kids are dumb. Part of their job.

All of my kids have had their "D'oh!" moments. DD19 decided to stick her head through the slats of a child size rocker. Got her head in there and couldn't get it out. There she was, wearing a diaper and a little red rocker around her neck. :rotfl2: And, yes, I took pictures before i sawed it off of her.

DS26 decided at age 13 constructed a science experiment. He connected a small motor to a length of wire and wrapped the wire around a butter knife. He stuck the knife in a light socket and flame shot out about 4 feet.:scared1: Blackened the wall outlet. He "wanted to see how fast the motor would go."

And then Christian...oy...He didn't start walking until about age 5, but when he did, Katy bar the door! He loves water, any water. One day he came walking through the kitchen all wet. From head to toe, drenched. It took me a few minutes to figure out that the only water he could access was....the hall toilet. :scared: Sure enough, a couple days later I caught him standing over the toilet dipping his head in. After that, we got child-proof latches!

And I won't even tell you about the various hair cutting that went on...oy vey!

DS(9) had his first karate tournament yesterday. We were in the van on the way to the venue before we found out he never put shoes on. He walked barefoot into the garage and got into the van.

We made him go barefoot from the parking lot into the venue and back out.

:rotfl2: DS did that once when we drove to the zoo. Got there and looked back to see he had no shoes. Ohhh, DH was sooo mad! :rotfl2:

Same DS, now 10, told me last night that he likes to wrap himself in our giant quilt in the basement. He rolls himself into it tightly, like a burrito, with just his head sticking out. One time he did it, then got himself stuck between the couch and a mattress we had pulled out for a sleepover. He yelled & no one heard him but he eventually managed to wriggle free.

Yep, dumb kids!

Well, my brother was the KING of things like this! (Any other Michaels out there? :rotfl2:)
To the best of my recollection, he and his friend ate some berries from our backyard. They came in the house looking guilty so my mom asked them what they did. (Even if he didn't look guilty, he did SOMETHING). They confessed to eating berries and my mom asked them to show her which ones. We had a blackberry tree in the yard, and I guess they didn't want to get in trouble (Mom would make blackberry jam) so they showed her the OTHER berries (which they really didn't eat). The ones they showed my mom were poisonous so they both had to go to the ER and eat (drink?) charcoal. :scared1:

When DS was 2, he managed to lock himself in the bathroom at my grandma's house. We talked to him through the window and tried to get him to turn the latch. He just smiled and waved and thought we were all being funny! My dad and my uncle took off the screen and put DS5 through the window. DS2 was thrilled that his big brother was coming in to play with him! DS5 unlocked the door and let him out. Big brother to the rescue!

My son(about 4 yrs. old) trapped himself in the clothes dryer once! He was hollering for me, because he couldn't get out and I COULDN'T FIND HIM. I was frantic and panicking because I knew he needed me, but honestly who thinks to look in the clothes dryer for their kid? He still mentions it from time to time and he is 7 now.

When DS #1 was 2 he was blowing bubbles through his smoothie straw. Then he gt the brilliant idea to take the lid OFF and shake it to make even BIGGER bubbles! :headache: It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't in my CAR! Yeah getting smoothie off the ceiling is a pain in the butt!

When I was about 4 I had this hand puppet bunny. I couldn't sleep, so I was throwing my toy in the air. I got a "brilliant" idea to throw him on the light fixture and turn my light ON! :idea: My parents rushed down stairs to see where the smoldering smell came from. :lmao: It was a good thing the came down cause my sister was trying to sleepwalk out the front door! See I did a good thing! :rotfl2:

This reminds me of a story from one of my aunt's siblings. When they were growing up, their mom had a bucket of cleaning solution out. The mom got busy with something else, and when she reailized the cleaning stuff was out...asked the child if they had drank any. The child answered "yes" I did drink that. After the doctor's office visit...the child confessed: Mom - I didn't drink any...that is just what I thought you wanted me to say.:rotfl:

When we were younger my sister tried to make garlic bread in the toaster. She buttered the bread and put it in the toaster. Once it was on she sprinkled garlic salt over the top of the toaster. Needless to say it caught on fire and burned up the bottom of the cabinets before we caught it.

I also had the bright idea to ride my bike through the woods with no hands. Well to get to the woods, you have to go over a cliff, which you really shouldn't do on a bike, especially with no hands. I slammed into a tree and flipped over the handlebars. Good thing I wasn't hurt...but I can't say the same for my bike.

So yes, agreed, kids are dumb.

DS took the grating for the Hp vent off the floor and climbed down into the floor.I looked down the hall and my toddler was resting with his elbows on the floor.

When my Fiance was around 2 his mom gave him a Tic Tac, which he decided doesn't go into your mouth but up your nose. It started to burn, and it was so far up there that his mom had to take him to the ER where they had to brake his nose to get it out. He still has a big bump on his nose because of this, one of my favourite stories makes me :lmao: every time :goodvibes

My son (he's 22 now) was 10. He loved the Hummer car. He wanted us to buy one. We told him it was too expensive - leave it alone.

So he goes on the computer and searches "hummers".

I go to the computer and see at least 2 screens closed at the bottom of the computer. I pull them up. They were all porno sites. He panicked and didn't know what to do so he "minimize" those pages.

"Mom, I just put in 'hummers' and those just came up!" :rotfl2:

*tinker* My husband, an attorney, had a client who had his son put a tic tac in his ear on a dare. They took him to the hospital because he kept pushing it in deeper trying to get it out. The ER doc, using special tweezers, took a piece of his ear drum out with it. Scary. Right in front of his father, here's a bone, here's the tic tac. The father was smart enough to keep the bone.
