It has become increasingly difficult to get enough quotes to fill in Quote Mondays lately. You may have noticed that I have skipped them here and there in the past few months. The older the kids get, the less hilariously out of context they are. Their too-serious comments are thoughtful or spot-on, rather than funny.
I have always maintained a sort of “editorial vision” when it comes to Quote Monday. There have always been comments that one or another have urged me to put into Quote Monday, but I have refused on the grounds that it didn’t “feel” like the right kind of quote. So I am very sensitive about not forcing quotes, or writing down “inferior” quotes, just to make my quota. (Get it? Quota?)
Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that I am going to have to retire Quote Monday as a regular feature here on the blog. There are currently 275 entries in the “From the Mouths of Babes” category; more than enough to occupy you should you feel the need for some quotes.
I know this breaks everyone’s heart. Quote Monday has long been the favorite feature of the blog. Alas, all good things must come to an end.
I will still post quotes occasionally when I have them, but I don’t yet know how often that will be.
