When you spend time around kids, you wise up to one thing pretty fast: they live by their own set of rules and their brains work in ways that we can’t even comprehend as adults.
Oh sure, we were like them once a long time ago, but that part of your personality magically disappears at some point when you get older.
As adults, we follow the rules, don’t question anything, and just go about our daily business while trying to look as normal as possible.
Kid logic is a real thing and here are some prime examples. Let’s take a look.
1. You’re sure you want the apple peels?
Okay, whatever you say…
2. What do you plan to do with this?
This should be interesting…
3. This will actually work, thank you.
You have a doctor on your hands!
Our 5yo wrapped a piece of sausage around my finger and called it a “band-aid” so needless to say, he’s my personal physician now.

4. I’m proud of you, my child.
This kid is going places.
“We don’t dry dishes, Mom, that’s air’s job” annoying kid logic that you’re secretly proud of.

5. You just gotta roll with it.
It makes sense to her…I guess…
According to my 3yo it's Christmas.
Because all the chocolates from her Advent calendar are gone.
Because she snuck them into her room and ate them all.
And since I don't have the energy to argue with toddler logic,
Merry Christmas everyone!

6. You’re gonna need all of that.
Don’t question the kid on this one.
7. How’d you come up with this, exactly?
I’d really like to understand how your brain works…
“You can eat 50% of a mermaid before you’re considered a cannibal.”

8. You can use all of them!
Kid logic: don’t need napkins when I have shirt sleeves, or mom’s pant leg, or the cat mistakenly wanders by.

9. Kids really don’t like showers.
We did it two nights in a row!
Shower Logic for Kids:
8-Since we showered 2 nights in a row, we should get 2 nights OFF from showering because we're extra clean.

10. When will it ever end?
You’re on a slippery slope.
11. No more pants for him.
He’s clearly living his best life.
The toddler took off his pants, opened the patio door, and threw them outside shouting “no!”
May we all live this boldly.
