Little kids really do live in a world all of their own.

That world is incredible. We adults have no idea, really, how kids structure their worlds, and their logic.

But every so often, they give us a little peek at it.


u/Ryoukugan asked:

What's the best "little kid logic" you've ever heard?

Here were some of those answers.

The Dog Evading Capture

Giphy

The little boy I used to baby-sit spent all his time trying to surprise the dog.

He reasoned the dog could probably talk but didn't want to reveal this because then she would have to do chores, clean up after herself, etc. Several times a day he would unexpectedly barge into a room, hoping to catch the dog in mid-conversation. Or he'd silently sneak along the walls, trying to eavesdrop.

There's Only One Tooth Fairy

"Daddy, can I be a digger when I grow up?"

"You can be whatever you want when you grow up honey."

"No I can't! I can't be the tooth fairy!"

-An exchange between my little sister at 5 and my dad.

Just Trying To Help Out

I went to a Christian private school so in kindergarten, we were taught Bible stories all the time. There was one story about a woman who got stoned because she had children and wasn't married. Now, I recall my kindergarten teacher saying she had children, AND we referred to her as "Miss" so that meant she was unmarried.

Also, she had these bumps on her face (I know NOW that they were just warts), but at the time, I thought those were marks that she got from getting stoned.

I literally went up to her and told her she should get married or she'll be stoned. She told my parents -_-

It's Called Kid Size For A Reason, Kid

Kid comes into where I work with parents, he's very smart and adorable throughout the ordering process.

"Um I want a...a...a fettuccine alfredo please!"

I look at his mom and ask "kids size?"

As she nods he ecstatically says "yeah yeah! a kids size, I'm a kid so that makes sense!"

Cue me laughing and assuring him that that makes perfect sense, he's correct.

This Kid's Going Places

Me: You can have one piece of cake.

My son: Eats cake

Me: Ok time for bed.

My son: But you said I could have a piece of cake!

Me: You had one.

My son: But that one's gone, so I don't have any cake.

Saving Time

I asked the six year-old son of a co-worker was drawing something, "What's your favorite color?"

He says, without hesitation, "White!"

I paused for a second and asked, "Why white?"

"Because you don't have to color it."

Consciousness In Kind

I mentioned something to my 4 year old niece about how we used to live in another place before she was born.

Her response: "How were you all still alive before I was born?" She had the most perplexed look on her face.

I think she legitimately believed that before she was born, life didn't exist and that we were all created after she was born.

Sibling Damage

When I was little my sister pushed me into the door frame and I cracked my head open. My parents couldn't see how bad the cut was because there was so much blood. I wouldn't let them wash it because I was afraid the water would get in and drown my brain. (Of course little me didn't tell them this reason).

The next day when the blood had all dried and they could actually see the damage it turns out I probably should have gotten stitches/staples.

Adulthood Means Never Having To Say You've Parents

Giphy

I was doing work experience at a kindergarten and one of the kids asked me whether I had parents and I said yes. A little while later, she and another child were comparing heights and the following happened:

Boy: But tsucee's taller than all of us!

Me: That's because I'm an adult!

Girl, looking absolutely confused: But you said you have parents!

The Atlantloch

I'm Irish and grew up beside a Loch which is like a salt water lake. You could clearly see the other side, buildings, trees etc.

I knew America was across the sea so for a long time I thought the couple of wee towns over there were the USA

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
