A Dad Turns His Two-Year-Old Girl’s Sayings Into Pictures Which Make People Smile

A Dad Turns His Two-Year-Old Girl’s Sayings Into Pictures Which Make People Smile

Being a parent to a young child, or to young children, you probably hear them say some of the most craziest things you’ve ever heard. You probably also find yourself saying things you never imagined yourself saying. This is also the case for a man named Martin Bruckner who finds inspiration for his art in the things he hears from his young daughter and the things he and his wife say to her. You need to check out these pictures that Martin has posted on his Tumblr, Spaghetti Toes, which he dedicated to posting these hilariously cute pictures, like the ones below.

This picture just further proves my point that moms have accessories for literally every occasion. Including emotion.

    I can only imagine the events leading up to Bruckner having to say this to his daughter. Some might ask why cake was put in the toilet.  Others might ask what kind of cake it was. These, my friends, are some deep questions that may go unanswered.

      If you ask me, cheese balls make my tummy feel worse. Things must be a lot simpler for a 2 year old.

        And to think I thought I was the only one. This is definitely one epic battle that I would pay good money to see. I just don’t understand how a little girl with such an imagination could be afraid of “make believe”.

          Did I miss this part of the movie? And why would she charge so much? Martin mentions on his blog that his daughter went through a phase where everything cost $60 dollars, so the price may be fairly consistent.

            This is another one that holds unanswered questions. Does she like them both together, or was she just listing all of her likes in no particular order?

              I just absolutely love this picture. I sure hope this little girl keeps the same attitude for when she is growing up. I hope my kids have the same attitude as well.

                Uh oh. She finally found out what makes moms superhuman. I’m sure Martin may be feeling a little uneasy, as I would be.

                  Unfortunately all of the creative things a toddler might say aren’t always so lighthearted. This is a very good representation for how a young kid expresses sadness.

                    But then you hear something that is so heartwarming, and puzzling all in the same sentence. This must have been inspired after an afternoon of playing dress up, or maybe Martin just has princess-like qualities. Either way you can’t help but to adore this picture.

                      The diagram really helped me understand how one’s elbow might have a sprained ankle. I think…

                        I don’t know if I am more scared for: Bruckner and his wife, or for the apple juice. I can imagine the look in his daughter’s eyes as these words came out of her mouth.

                        this apple juice is doomed

                          If she doesn’t end up being somebody one day like she said before, she at least has a back up plan.

                            How could you say no to her after that? She even said “Please”! This certainly goes to show that little girls know exactly what to say to get their dads to do whatever they want.

                              I’m sure there was a very good reason for the hot dogs to be yelled at. There are always two sides to every story, after all.

                                Martin Bruckner has many more pictures like these ones on his blog. He shows us just how much more fun the world can be through a toddler’s eyes. If you want to see more of Martin’s work, follow Spaghetti Toes on Tumblr.

                                7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                                7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                                Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

                                But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

                                If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

                                1. Limit the time you spend with them.

                                First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

                                In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

                                Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

                                2. Speak up for yourself.

                                Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

                                3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

                                This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

                                But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

                                4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

                                Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

                                This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

                                Why else would they be sharing this with you?

                                5. Change the subject.

                                When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

                                Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

                                6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

                                Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

                                I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

                                You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

                                Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

                                7. Leave them behind.

                                Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

                                If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

                                That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
