Live From Snack Time: This Teacher Shares Things Kids Say When Parents Aren’t Around, and Nothing Has Ever Been Funnier or Cuter

A teacher from New York has made the internet fall in love with what kids are saying behind your back. Alyssa Cowit first started Live from Snack Time five years ago when she was teaching kindergarten. It began as an anonymous private twitter account but grew from there.

On the account, she posts the funny, sweet, weird, and sometimes sad things that kids say. Kids speak differently to everyone, and often parents are surprised by what their kids say to other adults. She started an Instagram to share even more, and now she’s collected the hilarious things kids say from all over the world. We found some of the best quotes from kids to share with you.
