In high school (at the pool) and in college, we had quote boards. They were bulletin boards or chalk boards that listed the funniest things said during any number of parties or just hanging out avoiding work. They were hysterical.
I’ve decided I’m not too old for a quote board. As a parent, there is at least one thing a day that I can’t believe I have to say. Some days, there are so many I just laugh to keep from crying.
It has been a weekend full of fantastic phrases. I’m going to share a couple then I want you to comment with yours. If you are a parent, I KNOW you have some that you can’t believe you said. If you don’t have kids, give us your best married/single/old/young best. I can’t wait!
Here are our weekend quote board favorites: Top Three
3. “Don’t play with your toothbrush while you’re going to the bathroom, that’s how toothbrushes end up in the toilet.” (Really, it is?)
2. “Dan, please don’t bite the cat’s tail.”
and the funniest thing that was said this weekend at our house….
1. “Good morning, in case you were wondering if the cat pooped in the kitchen sink, yes, yes he did.” (That is a whole different post!)
C’mon give us your best shot.

Sometimes when the kids are fighting & I'm trying to get dinner ready I turn on the tv to distract them from each other & I scream, "Now sit down & watch tv quietly or you're both going to your room for time-outs!!!" hahahaha!

Believe it or not the "blowtorch mishap" was not the fault of the college kids living in the house. It was the construction workers apparently not following the OSHA rules closely enough:) For once the MD students are innocent:)
Its not a quote but a headline which may be more reprenetative to parents of older children than those who regularly read this blog. As I was buying a mega millions ticket at a local conveniece store today in the eternal quest for a better life I ganced over an saw what could only be a healine in a college newspapaer
FOUR STUDENTS DISPLACED BY FIRE
Blowtorch mishap in basement set Hopkins Ave house aflame
If you have children over fifteen years of age a "blowtorch mishap" seems at least possible.

Awesome. Pajama-that's like the oft used, "you don't get dessert until you finish your nuggets and fries."
At the recital this weekend, "Janice we need your first aid kit, someone just ran into the glass door." Yes, someone old enough to know better plowed right up the steps and into the glass door. She was fine, but I couldn't believe I yelled that across the Paramount theater during dress rehearsal. We put big tape x marks on the door after that.
I'll have to give you more great quotes I get during the year teaching the kids.:)

Something tells me your cat hasn't exactly settled in at the new house yet. 🙂
I don't have a quote for the day yet… but I check back as soon as I do (should probably be within the hour).

Ok I don't have a quoate, but I do have a "I can't believe I just did that" story. Came home from Crofton via, Annacostia – yes as in DC. Never claimed to be good with directions:)
