Awkward things kids say in public

Awkward things kids say in public

It’s cute when the little ones start talking, isn’t it? But then cute turns awkward pretty quickly when they start saying not-so-cute things loudly in public. This is our list as compiled by you on the most awkward things your kids have said in public.

Hearing your baby talk for the first time could possibly be one of the most exciting things to ever happen in your entire life.

That moment when “Goo goo gaa gaa” turn to “mama” and “dada” is possibly the closest thing to magic you could ask for in this plane of existence. It is also very exciting and very cute when they start forming words into semi-comprehensive sentences.

But you know what’s not very cute?

It is not very cute when the kiddies can speak in proper sentences...but completely lack the proper filtration that polite society requires.We scoured the net and asked our readers on Facebook page and came up with this super hilarious list of when talking kids, go wrong.
