These will make your day.

LAST NIGHT, PARENTING blog The Unmumsy Mum shared this absolute gem of a story from a reader on Facebook.

The anecdote inspired other readers to share similarly hilarious/awkward kid stories.

Like this lovely drawing.

And this nightmare scenario.

In a supermarket buying tampons and my 4yo walks round the supermarket for the rest of the food shop telling every stranger we walked past that “mummy was bleeding from her bumbum.

Can you not, please?!

Kids: they’re the worst telltales

They have no sense of what’s appropriate

My 5 year old came out the bathroom playing pirates and she shouted ‘arrrrrrrre me hearties look at my telescope’ as I turned to see her using my USED tampon tube out the bin!!!!

And they’re not remotely subtle

My 3 year old once turned to a male stranger when I was buying tampons and whispered “there not sweeties”

He pointed at the fresh chickens and said ‘look mummy, willies’ I said ‘no darling that’s chicken’ he said ‘you like willies don’t you mummy?’.

…I thought I got away with it , until we got on the bus later on and very loudly said to the grumpy old bus driver ” you have to be nice to my mummy today she had blood in her pants “

But we love them anyway.

When my son was little he found a Tampax in my handbag, unwrapped it and then took his pet “mouse” everywhere with him.
