It’s fun to watch kids’ work through a problem or come to a realization — you can almost see the little cogs turning in their brains.
If you need a good laugh today, here are 15 examples of kid logic that make perfect sense.
1. How Thoughtful
Mmm, delicious! Well, what’s left of it…
Kids: We saved you some bread, Mom.
Me: Thanks, you guys are the best!

2. Meat Feet
Ha, well that’s one way of looking at things! Good job!
[playing with 2yo]
Me: oh check my foot. I think it’s broken.
2: *examining foot* lot’s of meat. lot’s of meat.
2: *giving thumbs up* good job mummy!

3. Nude Toddler
Hey, at least he’s brushing them. His teeth, I mean. Nevermind…
My toddler prefers brushing his teeth in the nude
No one prepared me for these moments

4. Very Scary Thoughts
Yes, those are actually scary things! Cats think so!
Son: I had some scary thoughts.
Me, rolling up sleeves to have a big father-son talk about All Of This: Okay. What kind of scary thoughts?
Son: Vacuum cleaners. Broccoli.
Son: Vacuum cleaners are LOUD.

5. Sinister Thoughts
What is that even supposed to mean? You got another daddy coming, kid?
Earlier today my 4yo told me “I’m glad you’re my daddy… for now” which is both the sweetest and most terrifying thing I’ve ever heard.

6. Have Kids, They Said
It’ll be fun, they said. But what do they know anyway?
Have kids, so that instead of sleeping through the night, you can be startled awake at 2:30am by your 4YO asking you if the chicken looked both ways before it crossed the road.

7. Dragon Girl Z
Ahhh, now you’re catching on Mommy.
4 year old: Mommy, am I ugly?
Me: WHAT?! Of course not! Who told you that?! You’re a beautiful and sweet and smart little girl and-
Her: NO, don’t say that! I’m not a little girl! I’m a dragon! Dragons are UGLY AND SCARY!
Me: Oh…then uh…yes, you’re hideous.

8. Music Time
Good news: My son cleaned his room
Bad news: He found his harmonica

9. Questions, Questions
Ouch, that’s gotta hurt.
My 5yo’s latest way of roasting me with a seemingly innocent question was asking if I was sure I was younger than grandpa.

10. Curious Kids
Yep, that makes perfect sense.
4: What are they doing?
Me: They're protesting, little man.
Me: Because some people are awful and aren't nice to people with a different color of skin.
4: So those people are awful like the smell of poop?
That boy already gets it.

11. Starting Young
Oh, my my my.
Thoughts and prayers for my son who thought it would be funny to tell me “I’ll get to it when I get to it, woman”

12. Bye Mom
Not even a second thought!
[stray cat on our front porch]
6-year-old: Can we keep it?
Me: Your mom is allergic.
6: Mom can stay outside.

13. Genius Parenting
Now that is just SMART!
A telemarketer called me the other day but instead of hanging up on her I gave the phone to my toddler. Nothing could have prepared her for the barrage of babbling gobbledegook that came her way and listening to her try to disengage without hurting his feelings was fucking MAGIC.

14. Cold Hard Truth
Ouch, those facts hurt.
Today during a check up I asked the pediatrician what I could do to make my toddler stop throwing stuff.
He looked at me and said “oh you can’t make her stop” and he literally laughed out loud.
Anyway if you’re looking for the devil, he literally has an office in Georgia.

15. Timing Tots
This is just brilliant.
In a world of many parenting hacks, only one hack remains indisputably effective when you need a kid to do something:
"I'll time you."

Well, there you have it, further proof that children’s minds are hilarious and clever (and sometimes a little creepy, but that’s beside the point). We hope all of these children are able to retain this charm and spunk into adulthood!
What are your favorite childhood memories that continue to crack you up as an adult? Any witty one-liners or questions you remember asking your parents?
We’d love to hear from you!
