Seriously, TAO scares me. It seems like every time I start a thread -- which I think is innocent and not in any way a violation of the UA -- I get a warning that my thread was supposed to be in The Forum For Topics That Could Possibly Relate To Topics That Are Not Supposed To Be In TAO. Once it was about my dog's incontinence. So, this is like the 4th ever thread I've started here. I'm skeered. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Um, not to be a total beezy... but I'm not sure this belongs here.<br><br>
You might want to PM a mod and ask...<br><br>
I'm pretty sure this belongs in the "personal growth forum"...

But I've been lurking on TAO forever now, and I've seen the topics that are okay go into 3 categories: tragic stories, things that antagonize, and basic silly-ness.<br><br>
I'm going with the basic silly-ness. I hope this works!

I <3 the basic silly-ness<br><br>
I've had my share of the tragic stories, but I much prefer going slightly insane in the membrane with asinine commentary about NOTHING

Well, NOW you finally understand.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
IKWYM, though. I almost posted the story of how my 2-year-old escaped from the house and wandered into my neighbor's yard to inspect their CAR, totally unbeknownst to me yesterday afternoon...<br><br>
But then I didn't know where to post it. Toddlers, or TAO? Gentle Discipline, maybe? Parenting Issues? Probably "Toddlers."<br><br>
But I never really read "Toddlers" so I kept it to myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
FTR, he's fine. And now we have those doorknob-turny deals on every exterior door. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Oh my goodness! Your toddler is very bright! I wish you had posted in toddlers because I check there regularly. That is quite a story!
