A friend of mine noted today that she got off The Facebooks for awhile because it was making her angry at people. Isn't that the truth? If you spend a lot of time on The Facebooks then you know what she means.

A few days ago, a friend of mine posted, "Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are foot prints on the moon." And it took everything in me not to write, "But why shoot for the moon when you can reach for the stars?" Because I'm a smart alec. This story really has nothing to do with anything.

Yesterday, a facebook friend posted that her one year old daughter was showing signs of being ready to potty train and was it too early? She had bought her a potty chair and should they start using it? She got no less than 27 comments almost ALL from people with kids between the ages of 1 and 18 months saying things like, "So-and-so told me that their kid did it that early and it was a breeze! I think it will be pretty easy when we're ready!" and "I've heard that most kids just take right to it!" and "I know Little Baby is only 17 months but he seems ready to we're going for it this weekend!"

If you've ever potty trained a kid, you are laughing out loud right now, no doubt.

I wanted to comment, "ALL OF YOU ARE STUPID STUPID PEOPLE! PLEASE SHUT UP TILL YOUR KID HAS ACTUALLY MASTERED CRAPPING IN THE TOILET. THE END."

(sorry for the language Grandma.)

But I guess it's like everything else in parenting. You're an expert till you go through it. Maybe I should have told them my potty training horror stories?

Among the best decisions I've made in my life, I would rate them as follows:

1. Becoming a Christian

2. Marrying Colin

3. Having a family

4. Attending the New Kids + Backstreet Boys concert

I'm trying to find the right words to describe the utter spectacular amazement that was the NKOTBSB concert. But I can't. My friend Bailey described it as "amazeballs" and I would say that's as close as I've seen to an accurate description.

Friends, I can't tell you how much fun it was. It lived up to everything I had hoped for when we bought the tickets in January. And to go and jam out with awesome girlfriends made it even better.

This guy also performed:


The dude can sing, but he's no NKOTBSB.

If you need me, I'll be dreaming of these two:

White Water Bay is our local water park. We have passes and have been five or six times this summer.

It always provides for interesting people watching. Always.

I would like to sum up what I have learned there this summer in one sentence:

Some people have a serious lack of self awareness.



The End.
