Everyone says that kids are great for making us laugh, and for making us see the world through new eyes, and anyone who has heard a child “name” something can definitely tell you that’s true.
These 13 kids, you have to admit, really seem to be onto something here!
13. Eh, that’s pretty much the same thing.
Except to the penguins, I guess.
My daughter referred to macaroni penguins as spaghetti penguins and why would I correct her they both sound ridiculous

12. I mean, what else do you use it for?
My 4-year-old calls our microwave "the pizza heater," and there's nothing to correct because she's right.

11. This sounds oddly dirty.
Unless you say it in a 2yo’s voice.
What's cuter? The ice dancers or the fact that my son calls them 'finger skaters?'

10. Aren’t boys charming?
You have to admit it’s creative.
My 4 year old calls snot "sneeze gravy" and I'm pretty sure that will clinch a full scholarship to Harvard.

9. That should definitely be a thing.
I love cake, I love bagels. In fact, I want one right now!
This morning my three-year-old called a doughnut a cake bagel so that’s what they’re called from now on.

8. They’ll be ruling the place before you know it.
I hope they write screenplays together.
@Tw1tter_K1tten mine call farts “poo ghosts”, so they will be in the same classes at school.

7. Christmas makes everything better.
And so do bagels, so.
FYI – when my son was 2 he saw a Christmas wreath and called it a Christmas bagel.

6. A darkly apt description.
That’s all I have to say about that.
My son calls them "please cars" because any time I speed past a cop he hears me mutter "please don't pull me over!"

5. I mean, that is what it says on the box.
Don’t go calling Harvard yet?
My son calls pudding "chocolate jello" and I'm not sure if he's an idiot or a genius.

4. I love it when they hatch.
Especially when they’re sweet and salty.
My 2yo calls the unpopped popcorn kernels at the bottom of the bowl “eggs” and this is your notice of the OFFICAL change: Popcorn eggs.

3. Well that’s rude.
But okay, also funny.
My four-year-old daughter calls hippos "hippies." We think this is great, especially when she talks about crocodiles eating them.

2. That’s what Mom says when she sees them!
This one just cracked me up.
My wife’s little sister used to call speed bumps “uh ohs”.

1. Beaks are cooler than snouts.
We all know it’s true.
My son calls a dog's snout its beak and I think we all should too tbh

I’m going to use some of these, for sure!
