The Cute Boys List

(Originally posted on the website Continuum…)

Last night, while cleaning up my room a bit…


I came across this Lizzie McGuire notepad. No, it’s not mine! I bought two of these for my younger daughters while they were visiting in the summer. We spent a lot of time in the car driving to and from the babysitter’s house when they were here. So I bought these colorful little Lizzie notepads with beads on the bindings, along with colored markers, for them.

Before placing the Lizzie notepad into a container of the girls’ toys, I looked inside to see if there was enough paper left to make the pad worth saving. What I found on the first page made it well worth saving!


Oh yes! This is destined to be a Snyder family classic! How handy this little notepad will be when Dad decides to create one of those embarrassing situations once this particular daughter starts dating in several years!

“Daddy, this is my date for the prom, Ryan.”

“Why, Ryan… you know, your name is not on THE LIST!”

“Excuse me, Mr. Snyder? What do you mean, sir?”

“You weren’t quite as cute as CHAD. Were you? You didn’t have the coy first grade appeal of DILLON, eh Ryan? You sure didn’t measure up to BIG MIKE! What? Were you an ugly little tyke, Ryan?”

Ah yes! I will be every young man’s nightmare and a daughter’s chagrin… a weird dad with a Lizzie McGuire notepad!
