"Eyeball juice is cry water." A kid quote illustrated by Jory Raphael
To paraphrase Picasso, all children are philosophers.

We're celebrating these grade school jewels of wisdom with a new feature.
Twice a week, one of the talented designers at Parent Co. will illustrate a kid's funny or insightful quote. We're going to start with our own kid's quotes, but we'd love to also illustrate your kid's quotes.
To have your kid's quote featured, send it in with this form. We'll post it here. We'll also send you a full-res copy to treasure forever. Or at least post to your Facebook wall and score some likes.
Just remember: "Eyeball juice is cry water." And wonder, "Is Pac-man a lemon?"
