If there’s one thing you can count on from kids, it’s that they’re going to ask ridiculous and inappropriate questions at the worst times.
Hey, their filters aren’t fully developed yet, so give them a break.
Let’s see some perfect examples of this…
1. Now I feel dumb.
My 7yo just asked me why mattress companies bother to put a design on the mattress when it's just going to be covered up by a sheet, and this is a perfect example of the constant questions kids ask that make you feel like an idiot.

2. That’s a great question!
Kids are great if you like being asked at 6am why doesn't Moana get sand on her feet when she walks on the seafloor after the ocean splits.

3. Need some help with this one.
4 yr old daughter just asked how mermaids go potty. I'm stumped as well. Any ideas??

4. Someone needs to patent this ASAP.
My toddler asked for a necklacine. Because she wants both a magazine and a necklace. Genius.

5. All ‘Frozen’, all the time.
My daughter asked me to *read* Frozen as a bedtime story. I'd laugh if I wasn't so concerned about the mind control Disney has over her.

6. She’s already annoyed about it.
7yr old "Do women get their periods on weekends too?"
7yr old mutters to herself "Jesus Christ"

My son just asked me why spiders don't get stuck in their own webs, and now I'm questioning everything.

8. I’d like to go there.
My three-year-old son just asked me, “Can you take me to the Vampire State Building?”

9. Not yet…
My 3-year-old asked me if quesadillas grow on trees and I was just like, “Not yet, girl, but dream big. Dream big.”

10. It is like a church.
My preschooler just asked me if we were going to pray to Target today and now I’m thinking he’s really on to something.

11. I can’t answer that.
My son just asked why the Death Star wasn’t called a “shooting star” and I honestly couldn’t answer him

12. Makes you feel old.
My son just asked me why anyone would want a "house phone" because they don't even have any games on them. And then I died of old age

13. Better get it for them.
If you want a front row seat for a temper tantrum, my 3-year-old just asked me for warm ice.

14. Fight club.
My son just asked if I'd pay to watch his stuffed animals fight.
I think he'd be a little too comfortable in a life of crime.

15. An interesting concept.
My 5 yo after I explained the concept of breastfeeding: "can you squeeze Capri Suns outta those things or just milk?"
