Growing up isn't easy.
Being a kid involves a lot of trial and error. While kids may say and do some pretty cute and hilarious things, they can't win 'em all. In most cases, kids start out with the greatest of intentions, but forces outside their control leave them disheartened as they fail miserably. And as much as we hate to admit it, most grown-ups find humor in their tiny misfortunes.
These 20 kids were certainly on their way to success, but ended up falling just a bit short. But hey, at least they looked cute doing it.
1. I promise you, he's the next David Beckham...not.
2. Something tells me he doesn't like his little sister.
3. Aren't you a little bit too old to be playing on the playground?
4. I do stupid things like this when I'm watching the Food Network, too.
5. The only thing that stuffed animal is filled with is pizza and birthday cake.
6. Don't drink and drive, kids!
7. Little boy, that's not your mother.
8. He's cut off.
9. Something tells me he's not going to be a pilot.
10. I don't think that's how chairs work.
11. What other cool tricks do you do?
12. Don't let the haters get you down. Let gravity do that.
13. You tried to beat the system, but failed miserably.
14. There's nothing quite like that "OOPS" face.
15. Gravity is real, my friends.
16. Well that was anticlimactic.
17. A little closer next time.
18. Can we get this kid some full-body padding, please?
19. This little one has yet to set foot on a beach since this traumatic experience.
20. Down and down he goes. When he'll stop, nobody knows.
I'm sure if these kids aren't traumatized for life, they'll grow up to be some pretty awesome adults. I hope so, anyway.
