When it comes to most of their artwork, we'll keep it stuck to the fridge well into their teens, or turn it into adorable greeting cards for relatives to display just as proudly.

We know that kids say the darnedest (or sometimes, creepiest) things, but when they get the wrong end of the pencil too, it is absolutely priceless.
Don't just take it from us - these parents prove their children's talents are well beyond their years. They've got a sense of humour, that's for sure...
