I always tell parents not to worry that their kids are great for me at school. I wish my kids were always the kids other adults say they are, or maybe not. Perfect kids would be boring

Juliet's kindergarten teacher was SHOCKED when we told her that Juliet is very feisty and willful at home. She honestly had no idea. Juliet is a lovely, considerate, thoughtful kid at school. At home it's all about her. I'm glad for it...it means she trusts us, and it means she's capable of self-control when she deems it necessary. Smart kid.
Nathaniel is a lot more consistent.
And Juliet has this fierce love for me that means I get the biggest, most powerful love from her along with the worst, demanding abuse. I get that it's really all about the love.
The number of U.S. states in which a person can marry the person they love regardless of gender: 30 and counting!
Ya, I know it is a good thing. He had a huge meltdown last night and then when things started this morning... ugh! Generally he is a great kid but a huge drama king!

So one of our roosters seems to have finally learned how to crow. I heard him for the first time this morning around 9:00am. Lets hope thats the time he starts crowing every morning
Our cat had kittens! She had two of them in the night a day ago. Unfortunately one of them didn't make it - just was weaker than the other. But the other one is doing well and strong. Kaiya and her friend were there yesterday when I found the one that had passed so they had a lesson in life. They helped me bury it and put some flowers down for it. They seem unfazed at the moment but I am sure there will be more questions throughout the day.
So sad about the kitten Fuchia. I know its just part of life, but still sad.
So, all the racism talk in the other thread made me think of my son the other day. We were in the grocery store and he was walking out in front of me as we walked along the back of the store. Every time someone came out of an isle close in front of us with a cart he would yell Ahhh and pretend that he thought they were going to hit him. It was equal parts cute and annoying. Then this black man walked out of the frozen foods and he did the same thing (no big deal), but as we walked away he yells `Mommy, I saw a black man!`, so it looked like he was yelling Ahh and scared of the black guy. I was so embarrassed! Needless to say we dont have very many black people in our area.
