Bulldog Banter, 1st Edition: Quotes from Room 105.

Sometimes, kids truly say the darnedest things. So, I wanted to be able to document some of the great stuff my kids say, much to my delight or dismay. Every now and then, I will be presenting these in the form of Bulldog Banters. I have to give credit to my girlfriend for part of the name. I didn't want to steal Sarah Hagan's post title called Things Teenagers Say over at Math Equals Love.  I tried coming up with something related to teenagers. Then I thought about paring it with something related to our mascot, the Bulldogs! By the way, Go Bulldogs! Then my girlfriend came up with Bulldog Banter. Then I felt I needed to explain what Bulldog Banter is, quotes from my room, Room 105.

Enjoy these little nuggets of entertainment.
