Dad Immortalizes Toddler's Funniest Quotes

"Please wipe the bum of this beautiful princess..."

For every parent who has dreamed of bottling up the cute or offbeat things their little sprogs ever said, I give you Martin Bruckner. The Nebraska dad who blogs at Spaghetti Toes found a creative way to immortalize his daughter's wackiest quotes.

It started when Bruckner's then two-year-old daughter, Harper Grace, would say the most "absurd, hilarious, adorable and ridiculous things."

While most of us might be content to jot down the quotes for our friends' and family's amusement in a Facebook status or tweet, Bruckner went one further—he brought the statements to life in colourful, often surreal sketches that knock the socks off scrapbooking.

A year on, and Harper Grace is still consistently delivering gems, many of which involve superheroes pooping. Other sentiments contain home truths that even teenage girls will find relatable, such as: "I like makeup and I like bad guys."

Blogging makes for a great time capsule. I managed to keep tabs on my son's days for the first three years of his life. But once your child reaches a certain age, it's hard to maintain meticulous records of every little amusing thing he says and does. 
Case in point: since I stopped blogging, so many of the zany things my little guy has said (and yes, many also involved bodily parts and functions) have slipped my memory. And for that I could kick myself.

You tell me: What's the most ridiculous thing your child has ever said? How do you keep track of those memorable moments?
