We all know that kids say the funniest and craziest things sometimes; their young brains haven't been conditioned to follow our narrow rules of speech just yet so they quite often just name things as their creative brains see fit.

And you know what? A vast majority of the time, kids' made-up names for things actually make more sense, are much funnier and more descriptive than the originals could ever wish to be. Ice cubes? Nah, that'll be water bricks, please!

In the list below, you'll get a new perspective on things that we have been taught not to notice. Only the pure, unsullied minds of kids could come up with these poetic observations! Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and feel free to add your own in the comments!

When I was at school, with 7 yo, i was studying sea stuff for an exam. Our word for cave in "ensenada" and I started saying "ensaimada" that is a pastry-candy. Mother didnt correct me. The teacher corrected me in the oral exam and everyone laught, was pretty cruel cause I really tought I was doing it right. I got really mad with my mother for not correcting me.

My friends father had a stroke, and had some aphasia, he was watching squirrels playing in the trees near the house, and struggled to figure out how to call attention to them. He finally said, "Look at those yard monkeys."

When I was about 4 we were on a camping trip. We stopped at a hotel for the night (Not sure why) MY Mother was in the bathroom & my Father had to go. He told me to tell my Mom he would be in the john. When my Mom came out she asked where my Father is. I told him "He went to John's house" She looked at me & then to my brother who said "He went to the bathroom lol"

When I had a lot of people over and made dinners my youngest son would say " we are having a big "confastemy". I am not even sure of the spelling but I loved how he made up his own word to describe the event.

That's stupid. Its not even a cute made up kid name for it. Correct your child, it's referring to the wrong animal. You look like a dumb parent if your kid is calling squirrels kangaroos.
