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!
9 years old on 21st September
Dubai American Academy
Funny moment: "Mummy I want to be a vegetarian with 'off days' ... when we have a shawarma."
6 years old on 22nd September
Funny moment: Julian: "Mum, I think I do not want to struggle and work like you and papa." Mother: "How will you earn and survive?" Julian: "I'll just give my tooth to the tooth fairy as she gives me money for every tooth." Mother: "Once all your teeth grow, how then?" Julian: "I'll just keep taking them out when I need money."
Elle Adelaide Ley Farla
4 years old on 29th September
Dovecote Green Private School
Funny moment: I am pregnant at the moment and Elle only knows that babies come from the tummy. Every time she saw me eating too much she told me to slow down otherwise I will get more babies in my tummy. It's been a great help with not gaining too much pregnancy weight!

Delhi Private School Sharjah
Funny moment: My daughter once had asked me to show her the tree where all the children are plucked from.
2 year old on 16th September
Funny moment: Someone asked him "Hetansh, are you a boy or a girl?" Hetansh replied "I am a man ... Batman!" He was wearing a Batman t-shirt.
