Art Linkletter made a fortune off his book "Kids Say the Darndest Things." You get a fresh batch of originals every single day. This list surpasses even the jewels we've heard firsthand. Thank you so much for immortalizing her astute observations.

That reminds me... the other day my sister's son (will be 3 next month) asked me if Anna Rae would ever talk. I said, "yes, but she's too little to talk right now." He then asked if Levi would ever talk. I said, "I sure hope not!" haha
I can't wait to hear the crazy things that Anna Rae will say!
