Parenting and Potty Humor

The Things Kids Say

Our household is unique in that both my husband and I have Bipolar Disorder. While some days can be more of a juggle than others, I think we’re pretty darn good parents if I do say so myself. Our kids are pretty rad not to mention extraordinarily silly and deceptively observant.

About a year ago, the girls and I did a quiz together, and I stumbled on the answers today. Their answers, Evie at age 4 and Lily at 9, still crack me up.
