child’s brain is the fastest-growing organ during their first 3 years. Sometimes, however, some kids make such witty remarks that it seems like their creative brain is more developed than usual. We can only laugh and wonder how their mind manages to come up with such things.

Bright Side found 17 stories that you might experience only if you’re lucky enough.

Me: They pay me a salary.

I was hanging out in my friend’s garage, and his daughter came out from the house and told me that I looked just like her teacher. I responded, “Man, your teacher must be a very handsome guy!” She responded, “Well no, she’s pregnant, are you pregnant too?”

Was startled awake by a toddler hovering an inch over my face. Oh, is she going for a kiss? Nope. “Mama, I want to eat your eyes.”
When I declined, she elaborated on her reasons, which included: they’re beautiful, I think they’d be goopy, and I bet they taste salty. Was then quite upset that I would not let her “have just a taste.”

A little girl (possibly between the ages of 5 and 8), when I informed her my service dog was working (I’m horrible at ages), she asked me what I meant. I told her that he informs me when I’m sick. “Oh, so he’s your dog-tor!”

Kid: “Cows are mammals, and they make milk, right?”
Me: “Yes.”
Kid: “Ice cream is made from milk, right?”
Me: “Yup.”
Kid: “If walruses are mammals too, how come we don’t have walrus ice cream?”

Had a young kiddo in my family ask me why my eyes were so big.
“I don’t know, those are just my eyes.”
She contemplates, then responds, “Well...you look like a bug.”

I was at a roller skating rink, I was 19 at the time.
Kid skates up to me and asks, “What’s that on your neck?”
“My Adam’s apple?” I respond, pointing to my Adam’s apple.
“It’s scary,” the kid says and skates away.
I stood in shock for a minute as I unlocked a new insecurity.

Took a kitten to the vet. He was sitting in the loaf cat position with his feet tucked all up under him. A little girl comes up to me with a look of genuine concern. “Hello, excuse me, I’ve never had a cat, I just have a dog and I just wanted to know if you brought the cat to the vet because he doesn’t have any feet?”
I picked him up, and she saw his feet and was so relieved.
