Dad Transforms 2-Year-Old's Absurd Quotes Into Adorable Illustrations
We all know that kids say the darnedest things. While many of us tend to shrug off (or laugh off) our children's sentiments, one dad is sharing his 2-year-old's quotes in the sweetest way. Using his skills as an art director, Martin Bruckner transformed his daughter Harper Grace's absurd expressions into the adorable Tumblr Spaghetti Toes. There, he shares illustrated versions of his daughter's most humorous expressions. Bruckner wrote about the origins of the site:
"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.
"I wrote my wife a book for Mother's Day including various musings around my house and will add several pages from the book. I will also be adding to the collection as they happen."
But what started as a DIY gift has slowly become a social media phenomena, with the Spaghetti Toes Facebook page garnering more than 4,600 "likes." Bruckner has even taken to Etsy to sell some print versions of his art.
