Children are known to speak their minds in an innocent and spontaneous way. With their fertile imagination and boundless sincerity, they often scare their parents when they tell them strange stories that have no rational basis.
We love stories in which children are the protagonists. That’s why today we have compiled for you some stories of little ones that left their parents perplexed, to say the least. Some of them could even inspire great movie scripts!
- One day I was feeding my three-year-old daughter with a small spoon, playing the game of “small plane”. At one point, she turned to me and said that she was also playing the “small plane” game with her daughter. I was amazed and asked her when this happened and she said, “It’s been a long time, Mom, you weren’t even born yet.
- My grandfather always sang a song when he came home from work. My daughter didn’t know him, but when she was one year old, she started humming the same song as him… She had never heard it before!
- I was pregnant and I asked my first daughter, who was three years old at the time, “What’s in mommy’s tummy: a little brother or sister?”. She answered, in the most natural way: “This is my little sister Patricia”. And that’s how we named her.
- My son said he had a brother and sister. I told him, “No son, you just have a sister”. And he answered: “Mom, I have a brother who lives far away and is already grown up. He is six years old.
- My son was four years old when we went to spend the night at his godmother’s house. When we went to bed, he saw a blanket and told me that his father had one like that when he was a kid, it was just a little different. I took the blanket, went into the room where my husband was and asked him, “Honey, do you remember a similar blanket?”. He replied, “Yes, I had one like that when I was a kid, but mine was green!”.
- My son had an imaginary friend. When he was five years old, he told me that his “friend” told him he would be living in Victoria. Four years later, my husband was transferred to the state and we moved there.
- My daughter is two years and 10 months old and she always says that we have to go visit her grandfather Rafael. She doesn’t have a grandfather with that name, but she always talks about him as if he is someone she knows really exists, and that we have to go see him.
- When she was about three years old, my daughter woke up in a rage saying, “Don’t mess with me, my husband is a lawyer.” The other day I asked her what a lawyer was and she had no idea. To this day, I don’t know where she got that from.
- My son was five years old when his cousin got married. We were choosing the music for the entrance to the church. Suddenly, a song came on and my little boy cried out, “It’s Elvis! We have to go in with that one!” Important detail: I had never listened to Elvis Presley with him. So we asked him, “Do you know Elvis?” and he said, “Of course I do!”.
- When she was little, my daughter said she knew we would be the best family she would ever have and she had waited a long time to be born into it.
- When I was pregnant with my third child, my three-year-old daughter said, ‘Mom, the baby is due today.’ I said, “No, not today.” When the night came, he was born. And to think that when she told me this, I still didn’t feel any pain or any symptoms.
- My cousin’s daughter always called me Paloma. One day her mother asked her why she called me that, when my name was Paula. She replied that when she first met me, I was called Paloma. I was working in a kindergarten. One day, a little girl of about five years old saw me and said, “Aunt Paloma, I haven’t seen you in a long time,” and she hugged me.
- A month ago, I told my five-year-old son that we were going to the movies. He said, “Great, Mom, I want to see that movie about the sinking ship.” I immediately asked him, “Titanic?”, and he said, “Yes, the one we already saw once in the theater”. I went to the cinema to see Titanic when I was 10 years old with my mother, but I never told her and my son has never seen this movie.
