From their unpredictable and often comical remarks to their endearing inquiries, children never fail to bring a smile to our faces. Join us as we celebrate the delightful innocence and humor of children’s outspoken words.
Well, Do We?
A second user added, “I teach swimming lessons. My favorite question has been, “When do we learn how to breathe underwater?”
One user shared, “I don’t personally remember it, but my dad always reminds me of the time we were both driving in the car when I was about 7 or 8. We stop at a red light, and out of the blue, I ask, “Hey, Dad, would a shaved baby gorilla look like a really ugly baby, or would it look like a gorilla.” He peed laughing.”
A third user stated, “This year at Christmas, my aunt wrapped my 3-year-old cousin’s present three times to bug her. After unwrapping the first two layers, she looked up, sighed, and asked, “Is this really necessary?”
Get A Parrot
This user said, “When my grandma told our family that she was getting married again (10 years after her husband had died), my cousin, about 5, asked her why. She said that she really liked our Grandpa-to-be, and he talked to her and made her not feel lonely. My cousin asked, “Why don’t you just get a parrot?”
A Redditor recalled, “My little brother once asked, “Why do I have two eyes if I only see one thing?” Fairly easy to explain to him now, but that was damn impressive for a 4-year-old.”
A poster commented, “Last week, my 5-year-old asked me why flies think gross stuff smells good and good stuff smells gross. I’m thinking, okay, how do I explain this at a kiddie level when he came up with his own hypothesis. He figured their lungs were upside down. I had to call my wife to tell her.”
Your Last Day
A top-liked comment said, “In the middle of dinner, with no context, my son recently asked, “What did it feel like on your last day of being a child?”
Smarter Than Most
This user shared, “2 days ago, I went to the park for sun and exercise. There was a big pyramid of ropes (it’s actually quite cool), and all of the children were playing on it. Then all of a sudden, I hear a kid ask, “Why are we climbing this?” I just laughed to myself, admitting that it is pretty silly to think that we just put some ropes up for no reason but to climb up and then climb down. Kids are probably the smartest of us all. They haven’t been tainted by society just yet.”
Yo Ho Ho
This person said, “My four-year-old daughter came to the conclusion that Santa Clause moonlights as a pirate 364 days of the year. She figured they both have beards, they wear the same boots and belt, and both say Yo Ho Ho, Merry Christmas. I thought that was pretty outstanding for a little kid.”
A poster commented, “On a trip back from picking apples, my girlfriend’s 5-year-old baby brother asks: What is light made of? I answered the sh***t out of that question. Answer: rainbows.”
A user shared, “My nephew asked his Kindergarten teacher, “How did people make the first tools if they didn’t have any?” I thought that was pretty sophisticated for a 5-year-old. He also asked me when he was 6 (he was playing with action figures), “What if the ‘bad guys’ think they’re the ‘good guys’? And what if the guys I think are good are really bad?”
Slightly To The Left
A top-liked comment said, “My mom told me a story about something I once said. I told her I knew what a ***** was. So she asked, Ok, What’s a wh****e? I replied, “It’s when you hit a golf ball really bad and say, WH****EEE!”
This one said, “This is not a question, but it left me completely dumbfounded and amazed. I was at the beach with my 5yr old son watching the sunset. Once the sun had disappeared over the horizon, he turned to me and said, “I feel really small” This was an intensely profound observation from a 5 yr old!”
One user added, “I was recently dumped by my girlfriend of about 4 years. Picked up my then 6-year-old daughter from daycare. She jumps in the car and looks around, and says, “Daddy, where is Derpina?” “You know, honey. She’s not going to really be around anymore.” She looks me dead in the eye and, with a disappointed look on her face, says, “Daddy, what did you do?”
Dinosaurs On The Loose
One posted, “One time, I was with my boss and his grandkids. They were like 8 and 4, I think. My boss and I were talking about how someone got arrested. The younger one asked what we meant, so I explained how an arrest works. As I’m talking about it, he interrupts me to ask in a loud serious voice, “What if he turns into a dinosaur?” I wasn’t sure what the police do in that situation.”
This user said, “My little cousin asked my uncle, “So he has a peanut too?” about the presenter, loud enough for everyone to hear during a quiet assembly.”
A poster mentioned, “I was at a restaurant once, and some kids were playing with each other loudly in the next booth over, and the dad yelled, “You kids are a bunch of animals!” to which one kid responded with excitement, “What kind of animal am I!”
“My high school physics teacher brought his son into work one day while we were working on magnets. One of the girls in my class decided to show him the magnets and said “look, magic!” The kid just looked up and goes “that’s electromagnetism, you idiot.”
This user recalled, “Do dead people stink?” – My younger cousin, loudly, at our grandpa’s funeral.”
Finally, “My sister, when she was about three, refused to eat her fish sticks. My mom told her she couldn’t leave the dinner table until she ate some. “Why?” my sister asked. “Because fish is brain food,” my mom replied. Pause. Then my sister said: “If fish is brain food, how come it was dumb enough to get caught?” Source: Reddit
