Carol Burnett Shares Side-Splitting Dinner Tale Involving Her Children

The legendary Carol Burnett shared a hysterical and side-splitting story involving her and her children during dinner.

God touches and impacts our lives in various ways, constantly showing us how much He loves us. However, one of the most significant and most apparent ways He does this is by bringing children into our lives. Being a parent is one of life’s biggest blessings. There is nothing like bringing a little bundle of joy into your home.

Children add so much joy, happiness, and love to life. It is fascinating to watch them grow, learn, and explore the world around them. Because they are so young and still learning, children have a unique perspective and an often hilarious way of seeing and saying things.

During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Carol shared a laugh-out-loud story about dining out with her family when her children were little. As Carol recalls, the situation began because her youngest child, who was five at the time, didn’t want an entrée and wanted to skip to the dessert portion of dinner.

Carol disagreed with that plan. So, like every other parent in that position, she told her daughter, “You have to have your dinner, and then you get dessert.” 

That little lady wasn’t a fan of her mother’s declaration about having to wait for the dessert portion. Carol states that the young woman responded by saying she would not eat anything. 

A little while later, Carol caught her youngest daughter looking at her during dinner. She said she knew she wanted to make up and apologize for her earlier behavior. The five-year-old eventually did, but did so in the funniest way possible.

Eventually, the five-year-old turned to her father and said she loved him and “your wife.”

The five-year-old may have gotten some of her mother’s comedic timing and skill.

Proverbs 17:22 “A glad heart makes a healthy body, but a crushed spirit makes the bones dry.”
