It’s no secret that kids say and do some pretty funny things. Their innocence is adorable and HILARIOUS!!! You never know what they’ll say next…


The other day, a couple of our toddlers were exploring in their outdoor yard. One toddler started screaming, and saying, “Chris, Chris, there’s a snake, there’s a snake!” As another child picked the BIG snake up and chased her around with it. Who knew worms were so scary…..😂🐍
