If you spend enough time around young kids, you quickly realize that their brains work in a totally different way than ours do.
BUT, you also realize that YOU were once the same way back in the day. You asked funny, weird, uncomfortable, and downright strange questions that made adults squirm and scratch their heads.
Hey, all kids do it and now, thanks to social media, we get to read about what weird questions other adults hear on a regular basis from the kiddos around them.
Here are some hilarious examples.
1. That might not taste very good.
But why not give it a shot?!?!
My toddler asked me if we were having moisturizer (he meant mayonnaise) on our burgers tonight.
This kid must have some intense face-cleansing regimen when I'm not looking.

2. Oh boy…let’s have a talk.
OutKast is alive and well.
The other day my 7yo asked me if OutKast was alive (because she’s obsessed w/the idea of musicians dying). She loves “Hey Ya.”
When I told her they were alive and well, she asked:
“Are they OLD?”

3. Oh…now it makes sense.
That one took me a minute.
My 3yo asked me if she could shave the window and it took me a couple minutes to figure out that she wanted to use the squeegee.

4. She’ll be headed to Harvard on a full scholarship.
Last night my 3yo asked, "Does the sun go down here so other people can use it?" I think she's ready for Harvard.

5. You were being set up!
Good thing you didn’t fall into that trap.
3yo asked me, "Do you like apples?" I ran away w/o replying.
I don't think he's seen Good Will Hunting yet but I'm not taking any chances.

6. No more of that.
He’s banned from picking music for the rest of his life.
My son asked if I had too much booty in my pants so no my husband will never choose the music again

7. Well, that takes all the fun out of it.
They depend on you for everything.
My 6yo just asked me for help finding a hiding place for my own Christmas gift, if you want to know how incapable my children are of doing anything by themselves.

8. Almost. But not quite yet.
They sure have it all together!
My 4-year-old asked my 2-year-old if it was time to fight.
2 checked the calendar and said, "No, not yet."
Well, at least they are organized.

9. That is depressing.
But a fair question…
My daughter just asked why we say "hang up" the phone and now I feel 90.

10. I can’t handle this right now.
Go watch TV and we’ll talk about it later.
Child [coming out of bedroom]: Do you think mermaid fingers prune from being in the water for so long?
Me [rubbing temples]: it is way too early for this

11. You should NOT have asked that question!
And now you are no longer a part of this family.
My 3yo asked what all the ‘cracks’ around my eyes are so I’ve just been to the market and exchanged her for two chickens and a llama

12. Sort of like littering…
But a little more scandalous.
My daughter asked why parks are closed at dark. I told her it was to stop teens from making bad decisions. She then said "Like littering?"

13. This is just me.
Take it all in…
One of my students asked why I was wearing my zombie costume when it’s not Halloween yet and I didn’t have the heart to tell her that this is just how I look today
