Creative Dad Turns His 3-Year-Old Daughter’s Sayings Into Hilarious Illustrations

The things kids say can sometimes be the craziest, so this clever dad, Martin Bruckner, decided to turn the funny sayings of his 3-year-old daughter, Harper Grace, into cute drawings. 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 daughter’s cute quotes aren’t the only inspiration – conversations with toddlers often result in weird sayings 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 children’s quotes and has a similar book made for you!

“At least she’ll grow up to be a well adjusted human being!”

“Lap honey.. you sit on Santa’s Lap… she did eventually get it right.”

“Who knew that the answer to the age-old question of stomach distress was cheeseballs.”

“Not sure how make-believe got thrown in here but this would make for a fun battle.”

“Lots to take in here. I think my favorite part is that this funny quote was actually a question. She has some strange infatuation with stuff being $60. Example: Ketchup in the store is $60. So is a new furnace. Interesting”

“I’ve recently been doing some custom orders for people. Here’s one of them!”

“She was blasting this out in full 1980’s power ballad style in her room the other day. Cool song.”

Does your funny kid say hilarious things? Send him your child’s quotes and have a similar book made for you!

He's a gifted illustrator with a wonderfully loose and lively style. These are very good. This should be a little gift book.
