Tom’s Best 8-Year-Old Quotes!


When I sat down to gather all of Tom’s 8-year-old quotes, I thought, “I hope I have some…maybe as kids get older they don’t say as many funny things?”  And I have a terrible (TERRIBLE) memory, so I couldn’t even remember if I’d managed to write down enough throughout this year.  And then I checked…

Oh my gosh, y’all!  As kids get older, are they not as funny?  NOPE!  Still hilarious!  At least, that’s what me and my battle-ready legs think!

So here’s Tom, in all of his 8-year-old glory.  Today is the LAST DAY HE WILL BE EIGHT!  Can you believe that?!  Me neither.  Happy last 8-year-old day, Tom!  Hope you don’t mind everyone now knows you watched an episode of My Little Pony once. xo
