The seven year old asked for a braid. This is what I could come up with. Related? I suck at braids.
*sigh*

We registered the seven year old in public school and I’m just feeling melancholy about the whole thing.

It’s not even the fact that she didn’t get in to the academy I wanted her to get it. Okay, so it is a little bit. See, since she was homeschooled and NOT TECHNICALLY IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT or any school district for that matter, she didn’t qualify. She needed to have had the year before the transfer in a traditional school. And she didn’t. And when I applied I sent in everything I had, but it didn’t even matter. And now? I can’t even get a transfer to the public school I would like for her to go to, because there is no such thing as transferring when it comes to homeschooling to a school of your choosing. You have to go through your home region public school.

Nyway, enough about that.

Good night.

I ordered a chalkboard decal ages ago, like three years ago, to use as a grocery list. It’s finally being put to use. Also, excuse the messy handwriting.
“Finger Trap” is the New “Thigh Gap”: This All Needs to Stop   

Finger-trap is the new thigh-gap

Finger-trap. Are you kidding me?

That is as stupid as the whole thigh gap obsession, which btw, I don’t care if you have one or not. We all have different bodies and I mean why does it matter if I have one or not, you know?

Anyway, I this is what I read:

If you’re “beautiful,” you are able to place your index finger against your nose and have your lips touch said finger. If your lips are unable to make contact with your finger, then you’re “ugly.”

Who comes up with this shit?

We, as parents and adults or really whoever you are, need to encourage inner beauty, not focus on what body parts are touching other body parts. Because if you think about it, and this doesn’t take a genius to figure out, your whole body is connected.

Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age. Betsy Cornwell, interview in Uncommon YA (via betsycornwell) 7,918 notes

  • 7yo: Mommy, when did you first read Harry Potter?
  • Me: Almost seventeen years ago...
  • 7yo: Wow, you're like wicked ancient.
  • Me: Thanks, kid.

You know you’re a grown up when sales on produce excite you

I got three containers of organic strawberries and two containers of organic raspberries for $11 at Whole Foods tonight and I was like way beyond thrilled.

Unpopular Opinions

I’ve never watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show. And I don’t plan to.

I’ve never tried sushi. I have no desire to try it. Every time I have walked near it, it makes me want to gag.

Coconut water? Bleh.

Gluten free dairy free nut free brownies? What is life.
