Words of Wisdom - My kids in 140 characters (or less)

Recently I heard my sister-in-law talking about how she might have become a parent sooner than she did had she known how hilarious kids are.   I never understood how both fun and frustrating parenting could be until the minions arrived.  They are funny and complicated little creatures who amaze me everyday.

Of course as parents, We all think our kids are brilliant little comedians and are guilty at one time or another of boring friends and family with tales of our kids.


We spend a lot of time with the minions and I'm fortunate enough to record the things that they say and do so I can look back on it and laugh.  Some of it makes the blog and other smaller moments don't.  One of the brilliant things about Twitter is how it's the ultimate parenting "elevator speech", because you have to keep it short. Below are Tweets, conversations, parental musings and things that the minions have done or said this summer, for your reading pleasure that haven't made it to the blog.
