Scheming Little Children
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sometimes children come up with some pretty interesting schemes. They think they can outwit adults. Take for example Katie from Pennslyvania.

Katie is 6 years old. Her mom Stephenie, is a registered nurse. Stephenie has taught Katie a lot of medical terminology. Maybe Stephenie has taught Katie a litlle too much. You will see what I mean with the following story.

Katie was in school one day when she decided she was totally bored in class. She wanted to go home to play computer games. She told her teacher she wasn't feeling well and could she go see the school nurse. Her teacher said it was okay. So off Katie went to the health room.

While sitting in the examination room Katie is thinking, or more like scheming. She's trying to figure out what to tell the nurxe. In walked the school nurse. She promptly asked Katie how's she felling. She told the nurse "I'm not feeling well.........I think I have high blood pressure in my right hand.

Jason is 5 years old, lives in the Mid West. One day Jason is playing in his backyard and finds a dead rabbit. Jason comes up with a scheme. Jason knows that he doesn't have all his permanent teeth yet. So Jason figures if he took the rabbit's teeth and put them under his pillow that night, the next morning he'll find a lot of money under his pillow.

Unbeknownst to Jason, his mom is observing what Jason's doing from her kitchen window. She's wise to Jason's little scheme.

So that night Jason puts all the rabbit teeth under his pillow. The next morning Jason wakes up with excited anticipation. He's expecting a lot of money under his pillow. Instead he finds a bag full of carrots. Chalk one up to mom.

Finally, the last child is Nicky. Nicky is 5 years old and lives in Hawaii.

One day Nicky gets an epiphany. Wouldn't it be great if to have an ant farm. So Nicky finds an empty coffee can with a plastic lid. There's a park nearby that would likely have an anthill. Nicky searches high and low for an anthill and finally finds one on the other side of the park. Nicky quickly scoops up the anthill and quickly covers the can so no ants can escape.

Nicky decides on the way home that the best place for his ant farm is the kitchen sink. Soon as Nicky gets in the kitchen he realizes he's too short to see into the sink. So Nicky gets one of his large toy metal airplanes and puts it in front of the sink. Nicky stands on top of his airplane, opens the coffee can and dumps the contents of the coffee can into the sink.

At that very moment Nicky's mom walks into the kitchen and yells "What in heaven's name did you just do Nicky?"

She quickly shoos Nicky out of the kitchen and tries to clean up Nicky's mess. There are a lot of angry ants in that sink, and they bite Nicky's mom all over her hands and arms.

After that incident Nicky wasn't able to sit down for a week.
