I’m sure I’m not the only blogger who has piles of unfinished posts on her dashboard. A thought or a topic strikes me and I jot down a line or two to remind myself that I simply must share it with you when I have time.

Sometimes I get back to them and finish them … sometimes I don’t. I cleaned out all of my unfinished posts last week. It was an amusing chore. Here are a few in particular that caught my eye (with my updated comments under each one):

1. “Whether the timing is coincidental.”

(That’s all it said. I have no idea what that means.)

2. “Ryan screaming at people… He’s really happy until he’s not.”

(Understatement of the year. You know why he’s “happy until he’s not”? Cuz he’s a toddler.)

3. “The Mayor of Daycare.”

(I call Ryan the “Mayor of Daycare” because he waves and says goodbye to every single person we pass on our way our of school every day. Cute but probably not worth a whole post, seeing as how I just summed it up in one sentence for you.)

4. “I cannot go out. I have a kid.”

(I seem to remember typing this after yet another “You haven’t seen that movie yet?? What is wrong with you?!” comment from someone several years younger than me. What’s “wrong with me” is that I have a kid. Movie theaters are not a priority for me right now. I am too busy focusing on healthy ears, nap schedules, potty training and how to get my kid to stop hitting people. I’m so fun right now, I know.)

Also important? Perfectly arranged football helmets.

I still might need to do a full post on that last one. I feel as though I have more to say on that topic.
