The tantrums, the whining, the sleepless nights, the barfing, the diapers ... and the list goes on and on and on.
If kids weren't so darn adorable and hilarious they'd probably get sold to the circus with alarming frequency.
But they are adorable and hilarious and they really DO say the darnedest things. They write them down, too.
From non-apologies to actual apologies, silly homework answers to break-up letters, here are 37 hilarious kid notes sure to give you more than one chuckle.
Pro tip: If you don't want your kid to say or write something, don't say it yourself or you might end up with a kid who tells his teacher he's going to be a freeloader when he grows up.
Which is equally as funny as the kid who wants to be a dog. (Hey, laying around and scratching ourselves all day? Sounds like THE LIFE!)
