Atticus' Best Tweets

I was hesitant to post this fearing I would seem like that mom who thinks their kid is the cutest kid in the world. Although you should think your kid is great, I just can’t take the luster from Atticus’ personality by a biased display of love for him. He shines pretty brightly on his own. His twitter account started as our way for our family, all long distance, to really know him through his own words, the ones especially unique to him. Now even those we don’t know and who have never met Atticus express how charmed they are just by reading his tweets. Here are some of his best tweets categorized for effect since turning five (and changing his twitter name from @AtticusToddler to @MisterAtticus).
