Kids say the craziest things, so this clever dad, Martin Bruckner, decided to turn the sayings of his 3-year-old daughter, Harper Grace, into illustrations. Originally, he started the project as a Mother’s Day gift to his wife, however it now turned into a popular tumblr blog “Spaghetti Toes.”
His daughters ingenious thoughts isn’t the only inspiration – conversations with toddlers often result in weird phrases from the adults as well (this dad can confirm it to you). “Spaghetti Toes” name itself comes from his wife saying to their daughter “Please don’t put spaghetti between your toes” at the dinner table. Martin asked his wife, “Did you actually just say those words?” and Spaghetti Toes was born.
Encouraged by its success, he now offers an opportunity to send him your child’s quotes and have a similar book made for you!
