In my last post I didn’t share all the adorable Babu quotes for March because there were some entire passages that I wanted to share.

I loved today. I was mostly sun shining and oh so warm. All the kids were out playing. Sophie was in bed because she got an abscess, and had to pull her tooth out. Went to the bowling alley. Teddy said Drobey’s sore cause I don’t smile at him in the morning. Fooey!
Fooey! I love it, I love how she writes it. But trust me, when she tells you FOOEY! it’s no joke. She’s telling you “Bullshit!”

Miss Short says she likes our division, but says it’s the most childish one. Jeanette and I went roller skating. We went to her aunt’s to get a drink of water. Coming down Nonotuck Avenue, she fell trying to make a corner. I didn’t fall. Phew!
…More of Miss Short’s FOOEY! Watch out lady, there’s a whole blog post dedicated to you coming up!
I love the last part of this excerpt. As long as she didn’t fall, right?

I feel good because I put it in good time on my accounting today. Mother slapped me because she said I answered her but I didn’t. That’s for a time that I did I’ll say. Felt awful tonight. Met them coming home and Caveman looked so glum.
She seems to have good perspective. Hey, I actually didn’t do anything to deserve a slap…this time.
She seems to have true concern for “Caveman.” I just can’t figure this relationship out!
