James Breakwell is the father of four daughters, all of whom are under 7. He also has a loving wife and a loving pet pig, so as you can probably imagine, it's a wild household. But from the chaos comes creativity, and some fun Twitter shenanigans.
Breakwell has made something of a name for himself by tweeting out the conversations he has with his girls, who are all about as precocious as they come and very very funny, whether they realize it or not.
However, since Breakwell is a comedy writer, who also operates a website called Exploding Unicorn. We have to wonder how many of these are true, verbatim conversations and how many are jazzed up with his wit. Another possibility is that his kids truly are this funny, and they just come by it honestly. Is having a funny bone a genetically inherited trait? Even if it's nurture, being raised by a comedian has probably helped these young ones develop skills with comedic timing and irony. Just check out some of these precious gems.
But the popularity of Breakwell's tweets probably has something to do with how relatable they are. Even if you don't shake your head laughing at how wise and sassy these wee babes are, you can probably recognize their curiosity in your own kids. Or heck, in your younger self. Who hasn't wondered what happens to a kangaroos when it jumps on a trampoline?!
I'd wonder if it's stressful to constantly be monitoring your conversations with your kids for tweetable content, but it doesn't seem like these girls will ever run out of fun stuff to say. At the moment, Breakwell has this tweet pinned to the top of his timeline:
Good choice! It's evergreen.
