1. Technically this is very accurate, so…
My 5 yo was helping me sort laundry and he saw my bra and said “Mom there’s your boob clothes!”— Mom.Whine.Repeat (@MomWhineRepeat) January 3, 2019
And now I’m going to forever call my bras “Boob Clothes”
2. What would your “birthday meat” be?

3. So body positive!
3yo can’t quite say “birdie” correctly so she’s walking around yelling “look it’s a beautiful booty!”— *sigh*clops (@aotakeo) May 22, 2019
4. This is shockingly accurate.

5. Beat Fever doesn’t have the same ring to it.

6. Goodbye crow, hello Halloween Eagle!
My friend’s 5-year-old just saw a crow and called it a “Halloween eagle.”— Tessa Dare (@TessaDare) May 30, 2018
And a child shall lead us. It is known. This is the new name for the bird-formally-known-as-crow. You know what to do, @MerriamWebster.
7. This would also be a good name to call a purse.
2yo referred to her coat pockets as "snack holes" and this is what I shall forever call them— Rebecca Caprara (@RebeccaCaprara) February 23, 2018
8. Why haven’t we thought of this!?
5-Year-Old: HEY! WHERE ARE MY MATTRESS CURTAINS!?— Momarazzi. (@Mirimade) September 4, 2018
Me: Um… your sheets? I’m washing them.
9. So emotional, and so much better than “tears.”
I'm not saying that my daughter is overly dramatic.— Kim Bongiorno (@LetMeStart) March 29, 2016
I'm just reminding you that she calls tears "wet drops of sad."

12. Gotta go apply my armpit makeup!
My daughter calls deodorant “armpit makeup”. You’re welcome.— Stephen Amell (@StephenAmell) May 29, 2018
13. Because two-year-olds are the best.
My daughter calls corn on the cob holders “corn chargers” and I think we should just let 2 year olds name everything from now on.— Lurkin' Mom (@LurkAtHomeMom) May 27, 2018
My son calls chameleons "lizard wizards" I'm done— Web DM Emma (@EmmaWrote) March 25, 2019

16. Pass the pizza sugar, please.
My 5yo calls parmesan cheese "Pizza sugar."— Tales of a Waffle House Server. (@AutisticDad23) September 30, 2018
