Children learn to speak in full sentences a long time before they have the vocabulary, logic, and real world experience we adults have, so what they say can be odd and charming, yet fully communicative. At the same time, parents find themselves saying things to a child that they never imagined possible. Martin Bruckner started illustrating some of those things for a blog called Spaghetti Toes. He explains the name in the introduction:
Welcome to Spaghetti Toes. I’ve dedicated this place to the absurd things I hear under my roof on a daily basis. Some are said by me, some by my wife, but most by my wonderful 2 year old daughter, Harper Grace.
The name “Spaghetti Toes” comes from my wife saying to my daughter “Please don’t put spaghetti between your toes” at the dinner table. I said to my wife, “Did you actually just say those words?” and Spaghetti Toes was born.
