What if toddlers texted? We found the answers (and they are spot-on)

Ever wondered what toddlers would say if they could read, write or text? A dad of three has answered this question for us all. And he nails it. Come and check out what would happen if toddlers could text.

The inspiration behind Instagram account If Toddlers Texted comes from the account owner’s three-year-old. It started as a Tumblr and has grown to more than 100,000 followers in less than two weeks,

The texts depict common situations and possible conversations with a toddler and his mum, his dad, his grandma, his friends,Tommy and Ben, his favourite television character, his cat and even Santa.

Make sure you follow the account as the hilarious dad, who wants to remain anonymous, adds more toddler-texting gems as they come to him.
