Parents Share Funny Tweets About Situations Where Their Children Completely Misunderstood Adults

It’s easy enough to misunderstand things as an adult, I seem to get the wrong end of the stick all the time! Stepping inside a child’s mind, we can only imagine the sorts of things they think up to make sense of adult conversations.

So it comes as an instant heartwarmer when a parent shared a tweet about a misunderstanding between her and her four-year-old daughter about travelling via ferry rather than a fairy.

Honestly, the visuals alone are hysterical! How did the little girl think a fairy would transport an entire family from point A to point B? With her magic wand, or by physically carrying them across? A delightful scenario, either way.

This tweet inspired other parents to share their own amusing stories of their children misunderstanding them, and we can’t stop giggling at their innocence and rationale.

Have your children ever misunderstood something that has turned into family folklore? Let us know in the comments!
