Have You Ever
I would be a billionaire had I thought to patent the Swiffer. I mean I was swiffering back in the day with a paper towel attached to an old mop.
The zillions of baby wraps out there. Come on people. Did you not wear your babydoll in your backpack all over town? Seriously, I had this doll I named Creamy (let's not judge 3 year old me on baby names, I also had a dog named Cookie). Creamy went everywhere with me, head hanging out of a backpack. I was babywearing before babywearing became a "thing."
The inverted bob? Remember when that was all the craze? Now we get it "stacked" but you know the cut. I sported a serious inverted bob back in second grade when I decided to cut my then below my waist tow-head blonde hair into one heck of a chin length in the back do. I wish had pics to evidence the epicness of my childhood hair woes.
The messy bun? Were you a dancer in your younger years? You had the messy bun perfected. It was called I just danced at the studio for 2+ hours and now have to run errands with mom. I could do it eyes closed one-handed while performing a pirouette.
The cupcake craze? Let me tell you. I was an aspiring baker back in the day, and ruled the bake sale in elementary school. Oh, I swirled my icing by using a ziplock bag as a pastry bag and added so many sprinkles it was crazy. Take that Sprinkles.
And anytime I happen to catch an episode of Shark Tank I cringe at all the things those people pitch and get picked up. I have ideas! I'm creative.

And I am sure that you all will now comment with things that you all thought of first and had the idea to post about and I will sit and secretly judge you because it was really My idea first.
I mean I drafted a letter to my younger self, jotted down notes about the Top Ten this or that to do before or after marriage, baby, moving, buying a house, getting a car and who the f&*k cares what's in my purse.
So, ya hindsight blows.
