It's Halloween and most ladies are putting on their sexiest corsets and smokey-eye makeup for the festivities.
I too, have decided to dress up.... as the sexiest Concerned Citizen (CC) you'll ever see. And by sexy, I mean sleep-deprived pregnant woman on Zantac, dressed up as a Concerned Citizen.
WHY, MIGHT YOU ASK?
The sort of person she'll be.
It's a maze and a whirlwind of successes and failures and laughter and tears. It's the constant influx of articles and op-eds telling you how to feed your child, what they should be wearing and how they should be sleeping. It's the looks you receive in the market when your child lies down on the floor and starts screaming. It's the constant loop of, "be gentle" and "it's time to use our inside voices." I mean of course it's filled with all the magical moments of watching a human become a person.
Before I had AB I was anxious about all of these unknowns. Breastfeeding... how does it work? What's a dreamfeed? Should she have a paci... what kind? But here's an interesting thing I didn't think about, at all: will it be easy for her to make friends? What kind of person will she be?
ALRIGHT Y'ALL -- Let's fundraise and give some much needed love to our district and amazing core lit curriculum!
Earlier this evening, a concerned citizen was, um, concerned, that I was going to create a snow storm of money raining down on the district to help raise funds so that the teachers who would like to teach "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian" would have the opportunity to do so.
WHO WANTS TO HELP ME? I'd love to share an update at the next school board meeting in November!
HERE'S HOW WE DO IT:
We're 10 months into Donald Trump's presidency, and yet, at every attempt at discussion and analysis regarding the President's policy decisions or crisis management, we're met with the "but Hillary....."
Did I miss something? Is Hillary Clinton actually the President? I just want to double check because I'm beyond baffled as to why conservatives want to continue talking about the woman who WAS NOT ELECTED AND IS NOT CURRENTLY PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.
But, since it appears that conservatives would rather dwell on Hillary's past, and her life as a private citizen, instead of actually having to take responsibility for the Trump administration, I'LL HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH YOU SO WE CAN ALL MOVE THE FUCK ON AND REALIZE WHAT AN ABSOLUTE SHIT SHOW TRUMP IS. DEAL?
I'm eating a generous slice of Trader Joe's pumpkin spice bread because perhaps I'd rather digest that than digest this week. And this week was heavy.
