Tom’s Best 6-Year-Old Quotes!


It’s that time of year again — the time when my oldest child becomes OLDER!

Every year I think, “Oh, I’ve just loved this age so much!  I’m gonna miss it.”

And every year, I love the new year even more!

I have loved 6-year-old Tom so, so, so very much.

And I have loved the words that came out of 6-year-old Tom so, so, so very much.

Without further ado, here were my favorites from this year of Tom…
