Kids spend a big chunk of their early years learning about the world, which means that when they don’t know what something is called, they have to make do with whatever vocabulary they’ve got—and the result can be pretty hilarious.

In a recent Twitter thread, parents shared some of the adorable names kids in their lives have given to various animals and objects they’ve encountered for the first time (or were just too little to properly pronounce the correct term). It began with author, Tessa Dare’s tweet about her friend’s 5-year-old, who spotted a crow and didn’t know what to call it.

Brilliant, right?

Among those replies are some of the most borderline-genius names for things that would make even Tom Haverford jealous (Speaking of, we could totally go for some chickie chickie parm parm right now).

There were so many adorable names, it was so hard to choose just a few. Here are some of our absolute favourites:
