I know that pretty much everyone would like to think that their children are especially gifted, or bright, or that they’re going to become rich or change the world or invent some new kind of bread, maybe.

But most of us, by definition, are ordinary. And that’s ok. You know why? Because we still have hope in the truly blessed children. The kind that you’ll find on the internet. The kind that you’ll find in this post.

See, these examples, mostly from Reddit, are proof that the kids are alright. That they’re evolving. That they’re going places. And we should probably be looking to these kids in particular as our salvation. Here’s why.

10. The Lego Worm

So simple, so elegant, so genius.


9. The Sad Cake

A clever ruse kid, but you haven’t yet realized that when grown ups are sad they eat MORE, not less.

8. The Carpet Bike

When you’re little, you’ll go to pretty much any length to avoid shoes.

Or in my case, this is would be my dad absolutely anywhere.

4. Water, Water Everywhere

That is some advanced wordplay right there.

My kids came in and told me there was water coming from the laundry room. They said it looked like it started at the washer. I rushed in to find this. Buncha comedians in my house…

Here to storm the castle.

He’s really got a can-do attitude.

1. Alphabetical Order

That actually takes a lot more thought and brainpower, so.

My son is one “those” kids.

Keep your eye on these kids, they’ll be on the cover of all our magazines soon enough. Or whatever has covers in the future. Some new kind of bread, maybe?

What’s the smartest thing you ever did as a kid?
