15 Times Kids Gave Different Names To Everyday Things, Cracking Me Up

There's nothing like when your child first begins to talk. As a parent, it's one of the most rewarding and magical moments you'll ever have. But as sweet as it undoubtedly is, it can also be hilarious.

Kids are bound to stumble and make mistakes as they find their voice. Have a look at these 15 times that kids gave different names to everyday things and see what I mean.

What did you do this past weekend?

"Instead of “the weekend,” my 4yo calls Saturday and Sunday “iPad days,” if you’re wondering how my parenting is going," Twitter user @DadandBuried joked.

i think it's safe to say that we're all in the same boat at this point.

I don't really know how to react to this one.

I know I'm an idiot for asking, but why did you have to tell your child to stop saying the phrase "chocolate pee-pee"? I need a little context here, can you help me out?

Cheese Louise!

"My daughter says “cheese” instead of “geez” and I swear I’m never correcting her because it’s the absolute cutest thing. I just want to wear my pjs all day, cheese mom.” - Twitter @ScaryMommy

I doubt that the dental assistant thinks it's very funny...

Being a dental hygenist takes an incredible amount of hard work. They do 90% of the work you're in the chair and then the dentist swoops in and steals all the glory. That said — this is still flat-out hilarious.

I can see why a kid would make that connection.

"The preschool just said my kid had to be potty-trained before school started. They did NOT say I had to get my toddler to stop calling the toilet seat the “butt hole.” - Twitter @thedad

Out of the mouths of babes.

I know it's a little cruel to say, but part of me hopes that this kid goes their entire life without anyone ever correcting them. The sheer sweetness and stupidity is almost too much to bear.

Just call me Builder Man!

"There has been a crew of roofers working at our house for a few days, and my 6yo refers to them as the “builder mans,” and now I shall hereinafter refer to any handy person as a Builder Man going forward." - Twitter @gfishandnuggets

That's bound to turn heads at the grocery store.

I really don't know which one I'd rather have my child say in front of a line full of complete strangers. I suppose you could argue that this is progression? Albeit an awkward one.

That's a big word for a little kid to swallow.

"Lol. When my son was little he told the doctor his asparagus was sore. He was trying for esophagus. At least he was trying to use big words." - Twitter @atinacarol

How is this not already a "thing"?

It's not that far of a reach, it's even kind of clever when you stop and think about it for a minute. Hmm...Will you excuse me for a moment while I go and make a quick phone call?

With knees like mine, this isn't a half-bad idea.

"My 5-year-old is learning about exercise & endurance, but he keeps saying insurance. Yesterday, he asked me if you need good insurance when you run. I told him at my age, you had better." - Twitter @HomeWithPeanut

I'm onboard for this.

I like it a lot! It makes it seem as if the weekend is that much closer. While we're at it, I'd also like to go ahead and rename Monday "Little Tuesday." Mondays are the worst and should be destoryed.

I wonder what their kid calls R2D2?

"My 5yo is starting Kindergarten in two weeks and to say it feels surreal is an understatement but she still refers to her favorite Star Wars droid as “CPPO” so gonna hold on to that for as long as I can." - Twitter @SnarkyMommy78

White or green — it's all the same to me.

Cauliflower tastes like a piece of broccoli that woke up and asked itself "How can I make myself taste worse than I already do?" I don't even understand why we bother differentiating between these two vomit-inducing veggies.

Just because they're young doesn't mean that they're totally lacking in wisdom.

"My toddler just referred to a fly as an “air-spider,” and now I’m thinking we should probably allow toddlers to name more things.," Twitter user @R_A_Dadass said.
