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.

                                How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                                How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                                If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

                                Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

                                So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

                                Advertising

                                1. Listen

                                Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

                                2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

                                Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

                                “Why do you want to do that?”

                                “What makes you so excited about it?”

                                “How long has that been your dream?”

                                You need this information the help you with the following steps.

                                3. Encourage

                                This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

                                4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

                                After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

                                5. Dream

                                This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

                                6. Ask How You Can Help

                                Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

                                7. Follow Up

                                Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

                                Final Thoughts

                                By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

                                Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
