We love our children unconditionally, of that there is no doubt. But they're also capable of bringing us joy and laughter in the most unexpected ways. Here at Connector we love sharing your hilarious parenting stories, the ones that only the mind of a child can engineer. These are just a few of those moments, all featuring kids with birthdays this month. Happy birthday you lot!
Erinne Leora Lopez
6 years old on 4th August
The Oxford School, Dubai
Funny moment: Once I checked Erinne's science book. I found a page in which she was asked to draw wild animals. There was a rabbit, bear, fox and a lion with a crown on his head. This made me laugh and I asked her why does your lion have a crown to which she answered "It's a Leo...and he is the king!"
5 years old on 28th August
City School, Ajman
Funny moment: My wife was changing clothes to go out to a nearby shop and my son said “Why are you putting lipstick on, we are just going to the nearby supermarket and not to the shopping mall.”
Muzamil Muhammad Ashraf
8 years old on 12th August
International School of Palmela Portugal
Funny moment: Muzamil is a bit lazy, he wears his home clothes under his school uniform to avoid wasting time when he comes back from school and can go straight out to play.
Evangeline Carmen Miranda
9 years old on 24th August
St. Mary's Catholic High School, Muhaisnah
Funny moment: About two years ago, Eva presented what she called a book of 'pookons' (she couldnt pronounce coupons) for me to redeem. These coupons included "daddy time" and "meal for daddy."
Jachin Isaac Jeyasingh
6 years old on 7th August
Delhi Private School
Funny moment: When Jachin talks to me, he used to say some words which I can’t understand and he tries to explain them in different ways which makes me laugh.
