Dear Readers: In the world we live in today, marked by ugly conflicts and the heart-wrenching reality of children suffering and dying in wars as you are reading this, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and disheartened. Yet, amidst this grim backdrop, there are always pockets of joy, humor, and hope that can lift our spirits. It’s essential to find and cherish these moments, reminding us of the brighter side of life, even in the darkest of times.
Recently, I stumbled upon a delightful TwitterX account, named “I Might Be Funny – Honest observations on life and parenting” (@imightbefunny1). The account is curated by a self-proclaimed Mom ❤ Humorist 😄 Author 📚 who humorously admits to “pouring milk before cereal and always believed a sloth was a mythical creature until the age of 42.” Well, if that doesn’t pique your curiosity, I don’t know what will… Her name is Janene.
In addition to her Twitter presence, Janene runs a website under the same moniker. While browsing the website, I came across a gem of an article titled “Out of the Mouths of Babes: 25 Hilarious Quips From Kids“. It was an instant mood-lifter! Below are a few quips to tickle your funny bone, but for the full experience, I highly recommend visiting Janene’s website.

Mummy Dear (@ThatMummyLife) – “My 4yo pretended she was a hired cleaner yesterday. As she helped me clean she asked if I had any kids. After telling her about my 2 I asked if she had any of her own. Turns out she has 5 kids and has been married to a man named Carlin for 30 years. You think you know someone…” – November 14, 2022
Ellie Hawkes (@elspells13) – “6yo (to her crying brother): “It’s okay to be sad dear – sometimes we need to let our feelings out, just let yourself be sad.” Me: “Oh darling, that’s so lovely, well done. Why is he crying?” 6yo: “I hit him.” #mumlife” – August 23, 2021
