While parents don't particularly love driving kids from one activity to the next, carpooling is a great way to cut down on all those trips back and forth. It's also a chance for moms, dads, and caregivers to overhear some pretty hilarious conversations. We put the question out to our own friends as well as the CafeMom community and asked them to share the wackiest things they've been privy to while acting as chauffeur -- and their answers will crack you up.  

From spilling family secrets to getting things completely wrong, kids can make the carpool a lot more interesting. Take a peek at what some of these parents have overheard and prepare to roar with laughter.

  • Woody ... Not That Kind


    "Many years ago the movie Toy Story was a big hit with the young crowd. I often babysat for a lovely little boy who was still wetting the bed at night. I think he may have been 4 or 5 and really enjoyed the movie Toy Story with all of its characters.

    As we were driving somewhere, he announced, 'Daddy says when I stay dry at night I'm gonna get a woody!' Trying not to burst out laughing, I said 'What?' He then proceeded to explain that when he can stop wetting the bed at night, his father was going to buy him the 'Woody' action figure! Too cute." -- Leslie Elia

    "My son's friend was talking about his dad's new girlfriend and said, 'My mom says she only looks that good because she's had 'boobtox!' ... which I'm guessing is a combination of a boob job and Botox, but I wasn't about to ask!" -- Anonymous mom of three in New Jersey
