Todd is a funny name. Sorry if it is yours. It’s just kinda funny to me. Always has been. It’s the fake name I give for Pablo when asked by a creepy stranger what his name is. Doodles’ fake name is undetermined, but I think I’ll go Toby, a kid who eats paste. Todd n’ Toby. Terrible names.

But let’s put the fun back in Todd with:

T.O.D.D. – Toy Organization and Distribution Day

Trying to get the boys fired up about the project of sorting, organizing and donating toys we don’t use/need. I am sick of stepping on certain ones. It’s hard to keep up with these little pieces I have been hiding away in the attic or basement. I rotate the toys to keep them fresh and interesting, but the backfire when trying to give away “baby” toys is that then they love them again after not having seen for a month or two.

TODD – would also accept Toy Org Donation Day because
there is nothing better to kids than OPT
– other people’s toys.

Anyway, we’ll see how it goes. With rainy and 60 degree August weather it seems like the thing to do.

Oops, Toby is eating paste again. Gotta run.

  1. Mine *always* find something they haven’t seen in six months, but suddenly cannot live without. Come to think of it, their father is the same way. Huh.

    The donation angle does help. Sometimes. Hope you and Todd and Toby have a productive time of it. Good Luck.

    I’ve been wanting to comment on most of your posts lately, kept meaning to come back other than my scheduled blog-reading time, but haven’t. Sigh. So I’ll comment on this one, because the name Tood is funny to me too. For this reason: when I was first moving into Cobeen freshman year, Justin came walking down our hall yelling, “Todd! Todd!” Shelly came down the hall shortly after him on her crutches. Justin poked his head into my room and said, “Have you seen a little boy with paint on his hands?” I just shook my head and wondered who this character was. “His name is Todd,” Justin explained, “And he put all of these handprints over all of these walls. If you see him, will you tell him I’m looking for him?” Why the name Todd? Who knows.
