year ago

Children are full of wonderful and notorious thoughts, which makes us think if they picked it up from somewhere or they just made it up with their own imagination. We love to stumble across such perplexing stories and thought to share the best of them with you too. Read on to know more.

  • My son was about to turn 5 when his cousin was getting married. We were choosing the music for the entrance to the church. Suddenly, an orchestrated song came on and my little boy blurted out, “It’s Elvis! Come in with that one!” Detail: I had never heard Elvis with him. So we asked him, “Do you know Elvis?” and he replied, “Of course I do!” © Patricia Andrade / Facebook
  • When my son was 4 years old, he put his hand on my belly and said, “Mommy, there’s a baby in there.” I was scared, and I told him: “Of course not, where did you get that idea?” However, just in case, I took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. © Kenia Oliveira / Facebook
  • I was pregnant and I asked my first daughter, who was then 3 years old: “What’s in mommy’s belly: a little brother or a little sister?” And she answered, in the most natural way: “It’s my sister Patricia.” And that’s what we named her. © Mara Lucimar Fernandes da Silva / Facebook
  • My son had an imaginary friend. When he was 5 years old, he told me that his “friend” said he would live in Vitória. 4 years later, my husband went to work in Vitória and we moved there. © Lucília Balduino / Facebook
  • My 5-year-old son saw that Tampax commercial where they freeze frame when the woman is doing the flip off of the diving board. He then came to the conclusion that Tampax helps you do flips, and his lack of Tampax is why he has failed in his own flipping endeavors. Cue us going to the grocery store and him yelling excitedly and begging me to buy them so that he could do a flip. © helmitkid / Reddit
  • My son was 4 years old when we went to spend the night at his godmother’s house. When we went to bed, he saw a blanket and told me that his dad had one like that when he was a kid, it was just a little different. I took the blanket and went into the room where my husband was and asked him, “Honey, do you remember a blanket like this?” And he replied, “Yes, I had one like that when I was a kid, but mine was green!” © Tamiris Borges / Facebook
  • When she was little, my daughter said she knew we would be the best family she would ever have and that she had waited a long time to be born into it. © Michelle Küster / Facebook
  • My cousin’s daughter always called me Paloma. One day, her mother asked her why she called me that if my name was Paula. She replied that when she met me, I was called Paloma. I worked in a preschool. One day, a little girl about 5 years old saw me and said, “Aunt Paloma, I haven’t seen you for a long time,” and she hugged me. © Ana Paula Ana Rafaella / Facebook
  • My daughter is 2 years and 10 months old and she always says that we have to go visit her grandfather Rafael. She doesn’t have a grandfather by that name, but she always talks about him as if he is someone she knows really exists, and that we have to go see him. © Milena Cristine Zavarise / Facebook
  • I was donating some of my niece’s clothes that she had outgrown and she told me not to. I asked her why not, and she said because when the clothes got small enough she would put them on her dolls... No concept of her growing, she thought the clothes were shrinking. © peaches9057 / Reddit
  • A month ago, I told my 5-year-old son that we were going to the movies. He said, “That’s cool, Mom, I want to see that movie about the sinking ship.” I immediately asked him, “Titanic?” and he replied, “That’s the one, Mom, the one we saw once at the movies.” And yes, I went to the movies to see Titanic when I was 10 years old with my mom, but I never told him that and my son has never seen that movie. © Agda Fernanda Teodoro / Facebook
  • My grandfather always whistled a song when he came home from work. My daughter didn’t know him, but when she turned one, she started humming the same song he would whistle without even hearing it before! © Aline Sampaio / Facebook
  • When I was pregnant with my third child, my 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, the baby is going to be born today.” I replied, “No, not today.” That night the baby was born. It’s hard to believe that when she told me that, I still didn’t feel the slightest pain or any symptoms. © Jéh Santos / Facebook
  • My son said he had a brother and a sister. I said, “No son, you only have one sister.” And he replied, “Mommy, I have a brother who lives far away and he is grown up. He is 6 years old.” © Jaqueline Silva / Facebook
  • My great-niece (age 4) knew her grandmother. But did not know her great-grandmother as they lived in different states. Also, she didn’t understand how family relationships work and had no idea that her grandmother ( the highest authority figure in her life thus far) also had a mother. When she met her great-grandmother and realized that her grandmother had a mother of her own, she decided that her own grandmother no longer had authority over her. And that she would only listen to the highest-level relative. She felt that the person directing her could only do so if they didn’t have a mother of their own. Kid logic indeed: “if you have a mother, you can’t tell me what to do.” I shall only listen if the order comes from the mother of whoever is talking to me." © PharmacyThumbprint / Reddit
  • Once, I was feeding my daughter with a spoon, playing the “little airplane” game. She was about 3 years old at the time. Then, she turned to me and told me that she also played the “little plane” game with her daughter. I was amazed and asked when it happened and she said, “It was a long time ago mom, you weren’t even born yet.” © Rafaela Camila da Silva / Facebook
  • My second daughter is almost 9 years younger than her sister, but from the time she started talking she told me that I was chosen as the mother, and that “in the birth line,” she would be born first. And that, because her sister ran much faster, she was born first. © Christiane Silva / Facebook
  • My 6-year-old son said he wanted to go back in my belly because he liked it there, but he didn’t remember what it was like inside anymore. © Ausonia Faustino / Facebook
  • When she was about 3 years old, my daughter woke up angry and said, “Don’t mess with me, my husband is a lawyer.” The other day I asked her what a lawyer was and she had no idea. To this day I don’t know where she got that from. © Andreia Cristina / Facebook
  • Three-year-old niece, while I was driving her home one day: I knew the dinosaurs would come and get me one day... (with a sigh of acceptance)

  • My 4 yr old nephew was singing that he had a dollar, and then he goes “and gam (grandma) has a dollar and James has a dollar..” and so on, so my Dad (James) says “how about Foxy?” (their dog) and he goes “Foxy doesn’t have a dollar cause she doesn’t have any pockets.” © terrasaurasrex / Reddit
