These Tweets About Kids Renaming Random Things Prove That Kids Are Way Smarter Than Us

Would you rather ride in a boring old elevator or in an uppy room?

Bestselling author Tessa Dare recently shared this tweet about the awesome name her friend's kid gave to a simple crow.

My friend’s 5-year-old just saw a crow and called it a “Halloween eagle.” 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.

Naturally, Twitter did its thing — resulting in the most delightful thread of the perfect names kids have given to everyday things.

17. This makes total sense. It's been pull-it paper all along!

@TessaDare @MerriamWebster @ 4yrs old my daughter called toilet paper ... pull-it-paper she thought that’s what everybody was saying whenever they said toilet paper. In her head it made sense because you pull it. So now me and my husband still call it pull-it-paper to this day my daughter is now 22 😂

18. Children are pure of heart and they can see things that we cannot.
