Hello, friends! I hope you enjoyed part 1 of the quotes from my daughter. Those quotes were from when she was between ages 2 through 4.
It’s time to share another batch of lines that struck me as worthwhile to jot down over the years.
These quotes from Faith are from when she was age 5 up until now (age 9).
During these goofy times with the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, a lot of things are out of whack from what we’re used to. Many folks are finding themselves in self-isolation or lockdown, unemployed, scared of the unknown, or worrying about money.
Although the recent stimulus check going out in the U.S. can provide a little bit of help (you can the status of yours here), it’s probably only going to be a small band-aid for many.
My thought in sharing these is solely to give you a chance to get away from the bad news for a quick minute. Hopefully, this will give you a chuckle or even make your day just a little bit brighter.
And with that, I hope you enjoy some more unforgettable quotes from my insane daughter …
