We recently shared a Reddit thread in which parents shared some of the weird things they’ve caught their kids secretly doing, and it was all parts hilarious and random:
Well, some of our readers shared in the comments section the weird things they’ve caught their kids doing, and it’s honestly just as funny:
«I caught my kid squatting on the toilet while he was pooping — like, feet-on-the-seat butt hovering.»
«My aunt caught my 2-year-old cousin in the kitchen with eggs cracked all over the floor. Turns out, he was picking them up one at a time, putting them to his ear, and saying, ‘Hello?’ Then, when a chick didn’t respond, he would throw the egg on the floor and move on to the next one!»
«We once walked in on my younger brother rubbing my other brother’s deodorant all over his entire body. Apparently they’d had the ‘Your body will start changing soon’ talk at school that day, but forgot to mention that deodorant isn’t a head-to-toe product!»
«I used to catch my daughter licking her reflection in public spaces.»
«When my cousin was little, my uncle caught him peeing all over the bathroom one day, saying proudly, ‘I got the spider!’ Turns out, my cousin had seen a spider and decided to practice his aim by trying to pee on it!»
«When I was 2 or 3, I would ask my mom to make me a ham and cheese sandwich — then, instead of eating it, I would just stuff it in my dresser drawer…
«This went on for a while, until my mom discovered a weird smell coming from my room and came across an entire collection of moldy ham and cheese sandwiches mixed in with my clothes.»
«My mom’s friend’s daughter used to get caught pooping in the backyard. Apparently, the first time she did it, it was an accident and the dog ate it, so she thought that’s what the dog ate. So she’d poop outside to ‘feed the dog.'»
«I gave my 1-year-old some stickers to play with while she was using the potty, and I caught her delicately placing them over her nipples.»
«Anytime my 5-year-old daughter gets something new in her hands — a shirt, a new toy, a book, a piece of tape, anything — we catch her sniffing it first thing.»
«When I was 9 and my brother was 6, my dad would catch us running at each other with our arms out, screaming, ‘WHOLE FOODS!’ at the top of our lungs. Then we’d slam into each other, turn around, run the other way, and repeat the process.»
«My 3-year-old grandson loves sugar. Well, I woke up one morning to find him standing on the kitchen counter eating powdered sugar and also rubbing it all over himself. When I asked him why he was doing it, he said, ‘This way, my body gets more sugar!'»
«My friend and I got caught putting soap up and down her hallway floor, stripping down to our underwear, and belly-sliding up and down it like an indoor slip ‘n’ slide!
«Her mom was not impressed when she got home.»
«Once, I noticed that my 4-year-old daughter was really quiet in her room. So I peeked in and saw her on the floor putting Vaseline on her patent leather Mary Janes. I asked her what she was doing, and she said, ‘Making my shoes shiny!'»
«Our 1-year-old loved being pantsless and loved the fridge. Well, one morning I opened the egg carton to make breakfast to find that he replaced every egg with a Lego brick…
«When I asked him where all the eggs were, he led me to his pants, which were on the floor — both pants legs were stuffed to the brim with eggs!»
«I once caught my son inside one of those claw machines at a pizza place trying to get toys for himself and his brother. I still don’t know how he did it!»
