The Professor did not contribute to this round as I have not seen the Professor in a great while. We think he still lives here. Occasionally there is a sighting and we wave to one another.

unnamed There he is! Hello, Professor! You’re looking mighty cute with that beard and stern expression on your face. This is the season of the winter widow, where the man is on the road and on the court coaching boys to jump high and shoot big. We are proud of the man. And his boys (they are AWESOME.)

So thank you, darlings, for providing me such entertainment. More real quotes here.

    Love the quotes–and you’re smart to write them down so you can remind your darlings (when they are all grown up) of the cute things they said. One of my favorites is from Tim–“Piano has ruined my life.”

    These are wonderful, and it’s great you’ve recorded them. I wrote down some of the things my kids have said but not enough of them. It’s fun to look back on. And yes, cherish #9!

    I love these posts and have started a “quotes” note in my phone. Not enough yet, and many come from the same child. Will continue to collect with hope of producing a fun piece such as this.
    Sorry you’re a b-ball widow. I understand, but for me it’s soccer. When I start getting overwhelmed, or if we’re being honest, resentful, I remember that it fills his spirit. Hang in there.

    This is great. You need to keep a running journal of all these quotes and compile something like Dave Engledow’s World’s Best Father calendars for your crew when they are grown.

    “I need a good pen! A good pen defines a person!”–Absolutely correct!!! Get that child a good pen.

    “I want a goat. It’s good for the environment. I will name her Arabella. And I will toilet train her. Mom, will you take care of her when I go off to college?” (no.)

    Not sure about goats (Where did the name Arabella come from?), but we house trained two pigs once. They were very easy. Child should ask for a pet pig. I’ll support the petition. ; )

    Fun blog. I’m so glad I stopped by. Good luck with the basketball season.
