The more things change…

Today Emma showed me how loose one of her lower front teeth is — and I’m embarrassed to admit that I cried a little bit. Maybe it was because today has been a pretty crummy day, maybe it was because I didn’t have much sleep last night, maybe it’s because I’m getting sick and I’m […]

Around here

Emma decided to label our pumpkins (from our garden!) so we’ll know which one is who’s — I love how she spells my name ‘Rebeky’: And, it looks like our little grrrl is much more into math than her mama! Here she is showing off her 100’s activity from her Montessori school: We’ve been reading […]

my kind of princess

Today we picked up a book I ordered a few weeks ago for Emma: Not all Princesses Dress in Pink. (perfect timing, no? especially after my recent “pretty” rant) I’m happily surprised with how much fun this book was to read to Em.  Here’s a cute little excerpt of the book, regarding princesses who work […]

Merely “pretty”

Pretty by Katie Makkai This is about the self-mutilating circus we have painted ourselves clowns in. About women who will prowl 30 stores in 6 malls to find the right cocktail dress, but haven’t a clue where to find fulfillment or how wear joy, wandering through life shackled to a shopping bag, beneath those 2 […]
