Weekly Wrap-Up (9.20.13)

You Did NOT Just Say That
These painfully funny quotes - all documented by court reporters, word-for-word, as attorneys and witness said them aloud in court - come from a book called Disorder in the American Courts by way of the Leaky Squid website. If you need a good laugh, click here. If you're thinking about a law career and need examples of what not to ask witnesses on stand, click here. If you need to feel better about our overall intelligence as a country, don't click here.

Differences Between First-Time and Experienced Parents
These entertaining differences are so, so true, and from what I can tell, become more pronounced with the addition of each additional child. My mom-in-law talks about dropping her fourth child off for a school-coordinated overnight and watching all of the parents of first-borns walk their students to the bus, check them in, help them stow their bags under and find a seat on the bus, and then check in with the teacher before finally driving away. Meanwhile, she popped the trunk so her son could grab his bag, told him she loved him, and said, "see you Sunday".

I don't know about you, but #5 and #6 really hit home for me...

Right Field
The fall baseball season gets underway this week! For our family, we're talking real baseball now - no more tees, no more coach-pitch - and to be honest, I'm a little worried. Is he big enough? Strong enough? Skilled enough? Focused enough? (To be clear, I'm talking about Will and not Tom here. I'm sure Tom is physically and mentally up to the challenge of machine-pitch baseball.) I suppose that if he's not, he can always gather me a bouquet of dandelions in right field.

Perfect Timing
Check out this compilation of 50 of the most perfectly timed photos ever taken...some funny, some beautiful, some astonishing, all impressive.
