Kids are so cute, guys, and one of the most adorable things about them is that they are truly discovering everything about the world and the beings that live in it for the first time.
They’re not dumb, they’re new here!
Here are 16 kids who were completely, adorably gobsmacked and confused by the reality of life on earth.
16. Making sense of English is hard.
No matter how old you are, tbh.
My daughter thinks the past tense of dream is drum. I corrected her but I regret it.

15. I can see how this happened.
Also…I think it could work.
I learned my son thinks it’s “bowl shit” not “bullshit”

14. Who knew Vaseline could be a gift from the gods?
Anything that stops them talking for five whole minutes.
My son thinks putting vaseline on his lips = he can't speak for some time and has to sit while his lips dry out. Total #win. Going to stock up on vaseline now, in the summers.

13. Why not a “cloth?”
Because I think I could really get behind that one.
My daughter thinks the singular of “clothes” is “clo.” “I wearing a clo.”

12. Yeah, because who wears wool?
It’s so itchy and we love sheep.
I just found out my daughter thinks it's "pull the wall over someone's eyes" and that's actually better, I might start saying that.

11. You really never can tell.
Perhaps that’s where her son got the idea.
My son thinks that since he has 2 testicles, he can have 2 kids when he grows up.
I'm not entirely sure my husband doesn't believe the same thing.

10. No wonder my kids love Amazon so much.
Transformers have always been the bomb.
My son thinks Amazon Prime and Optimus Prime are one and the same, and honestly how cute is that that we have a transformer who delivers us gifts every few days?

9. Yeah they are.
Sing it, little feminist.
Just learned that my daughter thinks those who came before us are our ansisters.

8. Is there a story about how they got trapped?
She should definitely write it.
My daughter thinks they are stone gummi bears. And I think this is wonderful. pic.twitter.com/RXih6NbAJR

7. He’s not wrong though.
If we were just describing them by their personalities, I mean.
I referred to a pigeon as a "big ass bird" and now my son thinks pigeons are called "ass birds"

6. Because she doesn’t understand sad.
This is kind of beautiful.
My daughter thinks the chorus of Eleanor Rigby goes:
All the lovely people,
Where do they all come from?

5. Oh my god she’s going to do amazing things.
And completely delight the first man she poops in front of, I’m sure.
My daughter thinks it’s funny to say, “That’s a spicy meatball” every time she poops, and honestly? Same.

4. It really leaves you wanting more.
Never underestimate the effectiveness of a good cliffhanger.
My son thinks the wise men brought the baby Jesus gifts of "gold, insects and MORE" and honestly that sounds like a way more exciting story

3. That will level some playing fields.
Does he know what/where breasts are, though?
My son thinks babies drink milk from mom’s butts. Not sure where I went wrong on this one, but I’m gonna continue to let him teach his friends this.

2. The best comedy is funny because it’s true.
So he’s definitely onto something.
my kid thinks calling pop tarts “poop tarts” is shit your pants level comedy, and folks

1. I’m going to be thinking about this for awhile.
Should we start a petition?
my son thinks the number between fourteen and sixteen is fiveteen, and frankly he has a point

Kids and their curiosity are less adorable when it’s the same question 50x in a row, am I right?
