A couple of years ago, my (then) 3-year-old was known for saying the most off-the-wall and hilarious things. The problem was, by the time my husband came home, I simply couldn't remember what was said that caused all that laughter.
There was never a pen and paper handy to write it down! Thankfully, this was around the time Twitter was becoming popular, so I set my little guy up with his own account.
At first, I had to explain it to my family, especially the grandparents. What is Twitter?
Now, many of our extended family - and some of our friends - have Twitter accounts just to read his little gems. It's really an easy way to share his little funnies without having to call the grandparents every time.
A few excerpts:
"Dogs smell. That's how they get to know people on the same planet."
"When we go to a lot of places, that means we're shopping."
"Chocolate milk: Stir it & eat it. That's my motto."
"Toilet plus toilet equals sink. And sink plus sink equals bathtub. And window plus window equals door. And oven plus oven equals microwave."
(Everyone's favorite): "You know why I peed on the floor? Because I wanted it to be a big geyser."
If it weren't for Twitter, I'd never remember he said these things. Except the geyser, I'd probably remember the geyser.
The best part is, I can always go back and read from the beginning. Not only does it provide a good laugh, I can see the little changes as he grows and becomes more mature.
