I don’t care what anyone says, children are little savages. Sure, they play all sweet and cute to lure you in and then, when you least expect it, they strike. At least, that’s what happened to each of these unsuspecting parents who were roasted into oblivion by their little ones.
1. This kid knew an insult when he heard one.
Me to my son: You remind me of me.
Son: That's just mean.

3. This 6-year-old knows how wrinkles work.
6yo: Mommy, when you get older will you look all gross?

5. This kiddo doesn’t care for mom’s cooking.
Me: We all make mistakes.

6. This very aware 10-year-old keeps it real.
10: Mom what's a metaphor?
Me: My life is a train wreck.
10: I know Mom, but what is a metaphor?

7. This kid isn’t about that comfy clothes life.
Me: Please get dressed.

Me: I AM dressed.
9yo: Is that what you're calling [waves palm at me] this?

8. Mom’s gonna need some ice for that burn.
9. This kid has their priorities in order.

Me: I'm allergic. We can't be in the same house.
