Cute Funny Children Quotes

Child / People / Portrait / Photography


From Denny:  The holiday season is about children - and sometimes the child in all of us when it comes to gift giving and receiving!  When we look through the eyes of a child we can view the world from a simpler place, a landscape of wonderment.  And children often speak up with the funniest perspective on a situation that is so unexpected - and undeniably true - it makes us laugh.
