Seven Real-Life Conversations With Kids That Will Instantly Brighten Your Day
Universal Pictures

As anyone who knows me can tell you, I’m pretty obsessed with kids. I have three nephews, one niece, spend endless amounts of time on babysitting jobs, and spent the majority of my high school summers working as a counselor at a children’s camp. From the time spent, I've learned that kids say the funniest things. Over the years, I've written a couple of my favorite lines down. Here are seven real-life conversations that I've had with kids that will more than likely instantly brighten your day.


1. Watching "the Wizard of Oz" with my three-year-old nephew.

Him: Emma was Dorothy for Halloween

Me: Who is Emma?

Him: (dramatically) I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!

Alas, the struggles of preschool love.


2. My nephews are obsessed with each other (usually) but sometimes they get a little sassy (probably because I’m their Aunt, and it rubs off).

Nephew #1: HEY! HOWS IT GOIN’ ON BUDDY?

Nephew #2: Ew. Don’t say that.

Nephew # 1: Sorry.

Envision that in an Amanda Show: "‘What was that for’, ‘For bein' an idiot’, 'Okay’" kinda way.

3. I was, for some reason, talking to my sister about pistachios when my two-year-old nephew overheard.

Me: *blah blah blah, Pistachio*

Him: THAT’S A BAD WORD, AUNT CAIT. YOU’RE GOING TO TIME OUT!

Pisatchio? Hm. Piss-tachio, maybe? Still trying to understand where he got that one from.

4. At the camp I worked at, a nine-year-old boy came up to me expressing his frustrations.

Him: I am pissed! P-I-S-T, pissed!

He was P-I-S-T, how could I yell at him for that?

5. Again at the camp I worked at, I was in charge of the six-year-olds. One particular boy was a little bit of a ‘rebel’ and liked using naughty words. We were having a seashell-finding competition when, all of a sudden, I heard a conversation about a buoy (which they mistook for a life jacket) in the middle of the lake.

6-year-old #1: WHAT THE F*** IS THAT LIFE JACKET DOING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAKE

Me in my head: …Oh my god, oh my god. This child just dropped an F-bomb, how should I appropriately handle this?

6-year-old #2: Caitlin! He just said f***!

I think that’s one story I will NEVER forget.

6. With the younger kids at the camp, every session we would teach them how to make ‘a potion’ out of nature and turn it into candy. One 7-year-old had a different kind of potion in mind.

Me: Alright guys, so today we’re making a candy potion!

7-year-old boy: Candy potion? I want to make a love potion and give it to you, Caitlin.

Me: (Awkwardly laughing) Very funny. Do you guys know the song "I Want Candy"?

7-year-old boy: I do. Except I have a better version. (Starts singing to the tune of ‘I Want Candy’) I WANT GIRLFRIEND.

Whole Group of 7-year-old boys: (join in singing) I WANT GIRLFRIEND.

WHY GOD, WHY?

7. It was the sleepover for day camp when one of the little 6-year-old girls I was watching decided to hop out of bed around one in the morning and tap on me until I woke up.

Little Girl: Is tomorrow today?

From the second she said it, I loved it.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

6450
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
