Kids are a lot of things, some of them at once, and they go hard every single day of the week – but one thing they all are is weird. They say weird stuff, they act like little freaks half of the time, and yeah, they totally get obsessed with the strangest things all on their own.
If you’ve got kids, you could probably answer this question, but maybe if you find your own kid’s obsession on this list of 12, you’ll have to think it’s not so weird after all.
12. Those are healthy foods, though.
She could have insisted she was Italian and demanded pizza for every meal.
My daughter wanted to be a dragon for the longest time. Would only eat red food, to help with her “fire.” So many bell peppers and strawberries.

11. We could form a rotation, maybe.
Someone has to be super into Sonic the Hedgehog, right?
I need a stunt double to listen to my son talk about YouTube for 5 hours.

10. Bless their hearts.
I cannot with this as a mom but as a human I kind of love it.
My 7yo uses an online reading app and she made her username “Poop,” so I keep getting emails with this subject line but I guess I should be glad Poop is reading. pic.twitter.com/aQ0LO2xiCW

9. Eh, she’ll get over it eventually.
3 only answers to the name Ana (from Frozen) and before that she’d only answer to Sophia (from Sophia the First) and before that it was Peppa and it’s totally cool cause it’s not like it took my husband and I nine excruciating months to agree on a name or anything

8. I’ve never read anything more real.
The fact that he’s totally serious makes 100% sense to me.
My son just told me that he LOVES the new toy trucks they got at daycare. They are his toy trucks. We donated them because he refused to play with them.

7. There are worse things.
At least you know he’s got good taste.
My son has become obsessed w/@BonIver. He's 12. Full beard & flannel by 16.

5. I’m not sure she actually learning anything.
I’m sure it’s amusing, though.
my daughter wants to speak another language so she’s walking around the house saying “mozzarella pizza!” in an italian accent, 𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘩𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 she’s not wrong…

4. Either nothing or anything entertains them.
There is no in between.
My daughter’s s new favorite game is called “walk around the table together”. It’s about as exciting as you’re imagining

3. Who else’s would they be?
That’s the real question here if you ask me.
My son opening a Amazon package just now “oh, i think these are my top hats”

2. This is your new normal.
You think you’re going to have a pretty normal day and then your 5-year-old announces she only walks backwards now.

1. You might be living with an alien.
