It's been a wild ride, hasn't it? Whether it was the plethora of wild pop culture events or the frequency of horrifying political and environmental events, 2018 feels like it lasted a decade (to put it in context, this time last year we were three Kardashian babies and two Middleton babies lighter)... and it has aged us accordingly. Sometimes it's difficult to remember everything that's happened in a year-that-feels-like-it-was-actually-10; a year you perhaps started out with a baby and ended with a small adult capable of announcing "nailed it!" at the appropriate moment. In the spirit of yelling WHAT JUST HAPPENED, I'm here to give you 2018 in letter board quotes, because if Pinterest and Instagram have taught me anything, it's that everything is more precious (and palatable) on an artfully appointed letter board. And you need to have your memory jogged.
Rule number one of 2018 is: admit you Amazon Primed a letter board to your house on impulse. Rule number two is: admit that you had your children labor with their tiny, nimble fingers to punch out and arrange all those little white letters. Rule number three is: you told yourself it was educational ("hand me an E, sweetie. No an E. No that's an S. That's a V—OK JUST LET ME DO IT").
