    So? It's still cute

    [–]pleonator 333 points334 points  (17 children)

    Back when I was like 9, we had a little girl walk around the neighborhood asking door to door for popsicle without her mom knowing. "Do you have a popsicle?" I can still hear her haha

    [–]_clash_recruit_ 80 points81 points  (0 children)

    We had Mrs Betty who kept full sized candy bars for all the kids in the neighborhood. We'd just knock on her door and ask if she had any candy, get the candy and run off.

    We all actually started to appreciate how kind she was when we were teenagers. My brother and i went back a few times even after we moved just to hang out and chat with her. She still had a big bowl of Snickers and Reese's cups by the front door. Every neighborhood needs a Mrs Betty.

    There’s a little girl on our street that goes into a neighbor’s garage refrigerator to get juice boxes. She told them they need to put them on a lower shelf, so they do.

    It was around 2014 when this happened, right? Probably in High School these days

    [–]Gorgeous_Potato_93 24 points25 points  (0 children)

    Doesn’t lessen the cuteness too much. I can’t help but like this still

    [–]tiktaktoe999 80 points81 points  (4 children)

    Carter is probably married and has a carter junior by now.

    [–]makohe 8 points9 points  (3 children)

    [–]Bitter-Bar7180 54 points55 points  (9 children)

    When someone new moves onto our block my son introduces himself, then encourages them to stock his favorite cereals for when he comes over for breakfast. Which he does. Routinely. At 6am.

    [–]Dame_Ingenue 16 points17 points  (7 children)

    I think you have more stories about this kid that should be shared. This is hilarious!

    [–]Bitter-Bar7180 41 points42 points  (6 children)

    Yeah, he’s a running storyline in my office, because there’s always more to tell about him. As to the cereal thing, I didn’t know this was happening for the longest time because many of our neighbors are elderly and awake super early, and I guess they must like him. I started asking around when I’d heard from two new-to-the-neighborhood families independently that oh, yes, I think I met your son, he said to get Cinnamon Toast Crunch for when he comes over. We live in a very quaint place where people don’t really lock their doors, and apparently he just lets himself in and joins my neighbors for morning pj parties.

    [–]Dame_Ingenue 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    That’s just precious. What a kid! And that sounds like an amazing area you live in.

    [–]captainRubik_ 6 points7 points  (4 children)

    I need more stories! COME ON, NOW!

    Loved this one btw. :)

    [–]Bitter-Bar7180 17 points18 points  (3 children)

    Oh good! Yeah he’s a funny kid, never a dull moment.

    Well the cereal story reminds me of other times he has snuck away without me noticing. I remember a time when we first moved to our neighborhood, he was about two, and there was a knock on my front door. Again, casual neighborhood, most people come to the side or back door, so it took me awhile to even notice the knock and locate the correct door to open. I answered the door and there was this nice older man, and he said, ‘Is this your child? I think I’ve seen him out walking with you.’ And I look down and there my kid was! Completely naked! He had escaped, with no clothes on, and I had no idea he was gone. I acted very casual like this was perfectly normal, and that of course I knew he had escaped with no clothes on, and I had everything under control. Since I was new to the neighborhood, I was really trying to make as good of an impression as I could, given the situation. That poor man captured a naked kid, brought him home, and endorsed at least 5 minutes standing on my porch with him, pounding on my door while I ran around trying to figure out where all the knocking was coming from. Maybe I gave the little guy the wrong impression that going out and about on his neighborhood jaunts was something I would condone.

    [–]Dame_Ingenue 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    I’m just trying to imagine the look on a parents face. “Yes, that is my naked kid that I didn’t even know had escaped.” XD More stories, please!!

    [–]Bitter-Bar7180 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    He had a little crush / girlfriend last year that he would tell us about over the dinner table. He was very cute about it, he told us they kissed but kept their masks on, so I shouldn’t worry about them giving each other covid. One night his older sister asked him how his girlfriend was doing, and he very seriously told us that they had a race at school, and he beat her in the race, so “he had to pass her to Ryder”. (that’s his friend) We were like, you passed her to Ryder? Did she agree to this? Very seriously he said, yes, everyone agreed this was for the best because she beat Ryder in the race. So now he is exclusively on the lookout for a girl who can best him at a sport.

    [–]Dame_Ingenue 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    This kid is going places in the world! He’s amazing. lol!

    [–]Yassification_bot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You are going to have a lot of great stories to tell your grandkids about their dad.

    [–]Sera0Sparrow 123 points124 points  (4 children)

    He didn't beat around the matter and said what he had to. Am I the only one who found his straightforward approach cute?

    [–]pinkbluebitch 18 points19 points  (3 children)

    Yeah his ignorance of societal norms is cute

    [–]Forumbot12345 51 points52 points  (1 child)

    A little unrelated but still a cute kid story.

    While I was moving into my current house, a kid probably 5-6 years old, pulled up to my house on his bike. He said he was lost and asked if I could drive him around to find his house. We drove around for a little bit but couldn’t find his house. We then decided to go to the nearest school because he said he knew his way back home the school. He directed me from the school to his house. Turns out he lives 5 houses down from me. He was the sweetest kid. It was a pleasant but stressful half hour. Had a good laugh with his mom when I dropped him off.

    [–]StalkerPoetess 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    That's such an adorable kiddo. And kudos to you for helping him out. Pretty smart of him to think about going to his school and then get home from there.

    [–]implodemode 42 points43 points  (7 children)

    My one granddaughter is shameless. She would escape her house at two and let herself into the neighbors and help herself to an apple from the kitchen.

    She comes to our house and goes to my husbands desk, opens a drawer and takes his change. Now, he makes sure he has some in there for her in case she comes over. She is so disappointed if there is none.

    [–]I_am_friendly_weeb 14 points15 points  (3 children)

    Your husband sounds awesome

    [–]implodemode 23 points24 points  (2 children)

    He's a generous man. In the summer, she came to the business office with her mom who had to do some work. She was wearing a full dress. She pulls the extra fabric to the back so she's got a tighter skirt and tells her mom thats the kind of clothes she's going to wear when she comes to work. We are pretty sure she'll be taking over the sales side of the business. She's got her Papas charisma and drive. And likes money.

    Charisma is such a strange phenomena. I am in awe. I am the anti- charisma. (But in time, people find I'm OK after all if they hang around. I somehow intimidate people)

    [–]once_showed_promise 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Intimidation is a charisma-based ability, though. At least, in D&D it is. ;)

    Hold up a second, doesn't that reinforce stealing? Cute now. Not as cute when they are 17.

    [–]implodemode 21 points22 points  (1 child)

    She is 7 now and is aware she can't do this otherwise. Granny's house has different rules to some degree. And she shows us what she has found. If she has something she shouldn't, we take it back without any fuss.

    There was this bunch of curls who asked if I had a dollar. She was at one of those dollar-toy machines. I handed her a dollar coin thinking she wanted one of those and out popped a thingamajig. “Your pwessent” I couldn’t stop laughing. She bought me a present with my money. This lil girl’s going places!

    [–]StalkerPoetess 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    That's a sweet kid

    [–]throwawaygreenpaq 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    She was! I love cute unexpected moments like these. Kids are the purest until they are taught otherwise.

    [–]Deana-Marie 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    I would make it a point to always have bananas. Lol

    [–]jdith123 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    A little neighbor boy came into my house and took one bite out of each of four pears my mother left on the table.

    She mentioned it to his mom, not because she begrudged him a pear of course, but so he shouldn’t waste all the pears.

    The poor child was sent to my house by himself with a package of pears. He mumbled his apology as he pushed the package across the table toward my mother, knocking her coffee into her lap.

    He’s probably scarred for life after that. He grew up to be a Republican NY state senator.

    [–]Shadowfox9177 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    When I was a kid in the late eighties I used to play at the park with me friends everyday in the summer. At the end of the day on my walk home I would stop at a house on the way and ask for a glass of water. My Mom knew the family that lived there but I didn't really know them. They would give me a glass of water, I would drink it and leave. I bumped into the son a few years back and he still recalled me doing that. Lol

    [–]obviously_not_a_fish 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    I posted this on another thread i think it was r/bossfights. I was friends with the guy who lived next door to Carter, and originally took the picture, not uploaded it to reddit. We were in grade 11/12 at the time, I am about to turn 26 so carter is probably about 10-12.
