Children are often known for expressing everything they think “off the cuff.” With their fertile imagination and boundless sincerity, they often scare their parents by telling them strange stories that have no rational explanation.

At Bright Side, we love stories in which children are the protagonists. That’s why today we’ve compiled, just for you, some stories from little ones that left their parents perplexed, to say the least. Some of them could be turned into a great movie script. Good reading!

  • 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 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
  • 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 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 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
