Any parent will agree that kids these days are growing up way too fast. Whether they’re taking imaginary phone calls from their demanding bosses named Johnson or they’re more concerned with Wifi passwords than small talk, kids seem to be acting more and more like tiny little adults.
These hilarious tweets are definitive proof that kids today are getting too old too quickly and we don’t know what to do besides laugh about it.
1. This kid who has their priorities in order:
Fake phone call I overheard my 6-yr-old niece having: "No, I'm not a kid. I work at a museum and I would like a latte."

2. These children who don’t waste time with small talk:
My cousin: [to my kids] omg you guys have grown so much! How old are you now?
6: What's your wifi password?

3. This kid who knows he has to watch out for #1:

4. This 4-year-old who is wise beyond his years:
4yo son said the word prototype. When I asked him what it meant, he said "People are a prototype" and I was too scared to ask what he meant.

5. This toddler who doesn’t have time for your games:
Me: Guess what time it is?
6-year-old: I don't have to guess. I can read the clock.
Me: It's time to clean your room.
6: No, it's 2:45.

6. A 4-year-old who’s constantly being pestered by his boss:
My 4 year old kid doesn't have an imaginary friend, he has an imaginary boss. He takes imaginary phone calls from his imaginary boss and has one-sided, exasperated conversations. We asked him once if his boss had a name and without missing a beat he said "Johnson."

8. This savage 5-year-old who knows a hard job when he sees one:
I was doing an activity with my 5-year-old and then told him I had to go back to work and he said “Okay, go touch your letters daddy.” which is such an amazing burn. “Must be exhausting touching that keyboard all day. Did you hit all the letters yet? You’ve had all day.”

9. This career-driven toddler:
My 3yo said she wanted to be an astronaut, and I said she had to study hard, go to college, learn a lot of science, and take a physical fitness test, and she shrugged and said, "That's just 4 things." So she's basically a nonchalant motivational speaker.

My 5yo on her 1st day of K: "They asked me to count as high as I could. I could've done 200, but I didn't want to waste anyone's time."

14. This brilliant negotiator:

15. A 3-year-old who is too busy for cuddles:

I didn’t birth you for such rejection

18. This kiddo who is too old to be mom’s friend:
"Mom, you were my best friend until I actually got friends" #shitmykidsays 😒
— Bobeli (@MichelleBobeli) February 13, 2015
19. This little grownup who knows where the knives are:
My 2yo said she is a grown up. I told her she isn't, that she is a toddler. She replied, "No, I'm a grown up. I'm going to touch knives."

Whenever my husband or I use the term “friend from work” my almost 5 year old exclaims “coworkers are not friends!” We still have no idea where it’s coming from. 🤷🏻♀️
