    17 Times Kids Asked Questions And Things Took A Hilarious Turn

    Parents to their kids: "Where did you come from?"

    Anyone who has kids knows that they ask a LOT of questions. And at least 73% of them leave you looking like:

    Yesterday, my 7-year-old asked me, "Why do we have two arms instead of three? Wouldn't three be better?" And I thought, how am I supposed to answer that? Am I an evolutionary scientist? No, I am not. I work at BuzzFeed.

    Anyway, I digress. The good news is that — as frustrating as all the endless questions can be — they can also be really, really funny:

    1.

    My daughter asked if @KaceyMusgraves ever gets to eat or sleep because she plays Rainbow so much on the smart speaker. “Some people listen all night. When does she sleep?” I explained that it was a recording and her mind was BLOWN 🤯

    2.

    @KerryHowley 😂 That’s like the time I gave the “5-year old explanation” of what a c-section is and my son asked me, “Then what is an A and B section?”

    3.

    Y’all my daughter asked why we grow hair on our private parts and I was like “idk baby that’s a good question” & she sits on my bed dead serious & goes “maybe it was just God adding little details” 🤣😭😭😭😭😭😭😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    4.

    My son asked my 7yo how she would survive a bear attack and she replied she would try to be his friend, thus making her the most adorable of my children but also the least likely to survive an encounter with an actual bear.

    5.

    love shack just came on and my son asked “is that john mulaney?” i’m crying

    6.

    My son asked me "Where does poo come from?" I was a little uncomfortable but gave him an honest explanation. He looked a little perplexed, and stared at me in stunned silence for a few seconds and asked, "And Tigger?"

    7.

    My son asked me if a “rug doctor” was a “down there” doctor and now my makeup is ruined because I literally cried laughing.

    8.

    My son asked me what does WiFi stand for & I told him it's named after its inventor William Filliam

    9.

    My son asked me for a watch today, and I said, “Why do you need a watch?” And he said, “So that I don’t have to hear you say, ‘Time to get a watch’ every time I want to know what time it is.”

    10.

    While watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” my daughter asked if it “was from the 1900s”, so if you need me I’ll be researching retirement homes while handing out butterscotch candies to trick-or-treaters.

    11.

    My son asked me why I was wearing sunglasses in the house and I told him "to block the son.” Now I have to pay for therapy.

    12.

    I just recalled the time my daughter asked if sand was called sand because it was halfway between 'sea' and 'land'.

    13.

    Last night my son asked if I'd ever heard of a pillow fight. I said I had not, so he explained the premise & asked if I would play. I awkwardly held a pillow as he gave me pointers through a smile that lit up the room. My first swing took him off his feet. He never saw it coming.

    14.

    My daughter asked me to search for a “magic wand” on amazon. So I typed it in, hit search, and gave it to her. She said “THOSE AREN’T MAGIC WANDS!”... and I see this. Well baby girl, I guess it depends on who you ask 🤣🤣🤣

    15.

    In today’s parenting fail, my daughter asked me what a ho was and I launched into a lecture about derogatory terms levelled against women. She looked baffled and said ‘on Minecraft it’s a thing to rake leaves.’ 🤦🏽‍♀️

    16.

    17.

    My kid asked me how old he was when he was three Be kind to everyone you meet. You never know what they’re going through

    Ah, kids. Gotta love 'em! 😂🤣
