As soon as my kids could start talking I’ve tried to document some of the things they have said and publish them on social media. One of the reasons is because, well, they are funny. Also – because sometimes it’s just neat to hear their honest reactions and thoughts as they grow up.
They are both 11 now, but here are some of the funniest/craziest things they have said in the past few years with many more to come I’m sure.

“Maybe an alligator?”, J.C. replied. I looked around the tub where he sat all by himself and said, “An alligator?”. His eyes cut away and then right back to me and a big smile appeared on his face, “Maybe the alligator was me?”
