Special Needs Ryan Gosling - Week 7?



I missed week six of Adventures in Extreme Parenting's "Special Needs Ryan Gosling" meme owing to Emma's turning 10 and the postings therein related.  I vowed to return however, for week seven.


Since 99.8% of the participation is by "mom" bloggers, the interpretation generally seems to be "pretend as if Ryan Gosling is your significant other, and fill in the blanks, fantasizing about how supportive and awesome he'd be".  


My take however, is that Mr. Gosling is ME.  We're almost the exact same guy anyway.  He probably dresses better.  Regardless. . this would be me talking to MY significant other.  


Without further adieu, today's participation:

  2. You're better than Ryan Gosling. I'm telling you. He only dresses better because he has someone to tell him what to wear.

    Where is this photo even FROM? Did Gosling do some film where he was all stompy-stomp through the wetlands in a tweed jacket? He should be stompy-stomping his way to Supercuts. I hate this haircut on him. Too floppy.

  4. Haha! I knew you'd rock this one again! I have to consciously think about the wipey issue to avoid this problem!

    And btw, you are the same guy. Yes. Sarcasm? You be the judge.

    1. "TOTALLY the same guy," he said, without a trace of irony.

  6. Coincidentally, I'm "almost the same" as Sandra Bullock.

    I'm thinking you spend a lot of time in trouble at your house. Just a guess.

  10. You're a good sport Jim. And you're right about how few dads there are that blog, so maybe I should get on board with the whole Ryan Gosling thing.

  12. All morning I've been looking at these Ryan Gosling pictures wondering exactly why he's wading through water. Now I know.

    1. No, I look so peaceful and angelic when I'm asleep. You'd do it while I was awake.

  18. I *may* have just snorted because of this.

    I LOVE your take on these. Thanks for letting us see the "other" side.

  19. There was no "may have" about it. I snorted. This is brilliant. Thank you. You made my night.

  20. Yeah, I'm guessing he has people to wipe for him!
