儿时我们天真烂漫,时不时整出一些新花样,时不时也作出一些啼笑皆非的傻事,下面的这些行为你是不是都做过呢?亦或是身边的小“淘气”都做过?

1. "When I was 4 I collected dead flies and kept them in a little trinket box when I wasn't playing with them. To make it worse, I named all of the insect corpses after my brother."

我四岁时收集死掉的昆虫,我不玩时就把这些昆虫放到一个小瓶儿里。更糟的是,我用我弟弟的名字给这些昆虫命名。

2. "When I asked my 4-year-old nephew what he wanted for lunch, he said, 'People.' I said that people weren't food and he threw a fit."

我问四岁的侄子午餐想吃什么,他说,“人。”我跟他说人不是食物,他就闹起脾气来了。

哎,小孩时候的糗事。。。。。实在是不堪回首!

3."As a kid I hid in a loft thing in my bedroom closet for two hours — and stayed hidden even when my parents opened the door 30 times..."

我小的时候在卧室壁橱的顶层里藏了两个小时——即使我的父母开了三十多次壁橱的门,我还是偷偷地藏在里面。

哎,小孩时候的糗事。。。。。实在是不堪回首!

"They thought I was kidnapped and called the police. I told the police I thought we were playing 'hide and seek' even though I never asked, just hid."

他们认为我遭绑架了还报了警,我跟警察说我以为我们当时在玩“捉迷藏”游戏,虽然我并没有告诉我的父母我要玩这个游戏,但是自己却藏了起来。

4. "When my son was 4 years old, he took everything out of my purse, filled it with dog food, then put everything back on top of the dog food..."

我儿子四岁时,他把我钱包里的所有东西都拿了出去,把狗食装满钱包后再把原来钱包里的东西放回来跟狗食混在一起......

哎,小孩时候的糗事。。。。。实在是不堪回首!

"I didn't notice until I was going for my wallet in a checkout line. I received so many disgusted looks from the cashier and people in line as I dug through a bag full of dog food like a crazy person. When I asked my son why he did that, he said, 'In case I got hungry.'"

直到我在付款队伍里拿钱包时我才发现这件事。我就像一个疯子一样从满是狗食的包里找钱,收银员和排队的人都向我投来了鄙视的眼神。我问我儿子为什么那样做时,他说,“万一我饿了怎么办,以防万一啊。”

5. "My daughter was 2 when I found her in the bathroom covered head-to-toe in Vaseline. Trying to pick her up was like trying to grab a water weenie. It took days to get it all off of her."

我女儿两岁时,我在浴室里发现她从头到脚都是凡士林,努力把她抱起来就像是努力抓住小水流。我用了好几天的时间才把她身上的凡士林弄干净。

哎,小孩时候的糗事。。。。。实在是不堪回首!

6."I once found my 3-year-old trying to stuff our cat into the fridge."

有一次我发现我三岁的女儿想把猫塞进冰箱里、

哎,小孩时候的糗事。。。。。实在是不堪回首!
