It Was Inevitable


Yesterday I actually said shouted the words, "No playing ball in the house!"

Immediate flashbacks of the Brady Bunch episode "Mom Always Says No Playing Ball In The House!"

I am officially in the Carol Brady Club. Who's already joined?

Ah, if only Alice lived here...

  3. I loved the Brady Bunch as a kid. Me and my sister watched it all the time.

    And yes, I'll admit, I have shouted those same words. And others too.....

  7. Since E is too little to be destructive, we're still encourage throwing balls in the house. I'm sure this will come back to haunt me in the future. But you should see him carry around the huge football and "throw" it on the ground.

  15. I guess it's a universal truth: kids will try to play ball INSIDE of the house.

    I too have voiced that very same phrase.
