bama baby- you are tough. i cross my legs just thinking of it.
ouch!

nancy-happy birthday!!!! i am so happy that you had a good day with the kids.
i am also happy that you brought up the pink issue. i was just talking to dh about this yesterday. i think that clothes are getting more and more divided by gender. like all girl clothes need to be DEFINATLY girl and boy clothes DEFINATLY boy- pink bows for girls and only monster truck tee shirts for boys- stripes are even too questionable without some other sort of gender tag plastered on the front. i was looking at pictures of my sister and self from the late seventies and we would be called boys for sure these days- jeans without bows or embroridery and tee shirts with what-ever. plus, in the eighties, boys were wearing pink a lot.
people call eisa a boy A LOT, even when she is wearing something like a peach blouse, but a baseball cap and i feel like- if they call her a boy, why should i buy boy clothes when the time comes?

melissa- you are changing cleveland for the better! newspaper quotes, church speeches- really inspiring! about meeting- a good friend of mine is taking care of his dying father in cleveland right now and i have the idea that when the time comes, i should go for the funeral. maybe we could meet then? if and when that ever happens.....

michelle sd- oh no! sounds like a pixie cut is coming....

davina- how did it turn out? i want to see!

ok, i am on my last room of the house for yardsale cleaning, i should finish while eisa is sleeping.
oh, she has started "real" clapping today and it is one of the very most adorable things i have ever seen- even in rythm for a few claps.

Be brave, Davina -- don't you find that permanent color often changes a lot in the first couple days/weeks? The last time I did color at home I did red and it was really weirdly red ... my friend who helped me do it couldn't bring herself to say anything nice about it! And I remember it looked a good bit different in just a few days. Can't wait to see pictures!

One of the church people called tonight and I need to call her back -- although it makes me very nervous, I also enjoy public speaking and get a thrill out of saying my piece. This is the really hard part for me -- dealing with my own worries of who I have offended and actually digging in to work for change, not just spouting off that everyone else is wrong! All in all, I still feel good about it though -- just call me Captain Planet

I think you are right about children's clothes being so gender-specific -- I remember that for Miles baby shower people had a hard time finding newborn things that weren't obviously for boys or girls! I wish I could find pictures of my brother and me in our matching homemade Christmas outfits, or even better, Easter ... I'd get a dress or jumper, and he'd be in matching shortie overalls and I am quite sure they were lavendar one year.

Mcs, I'd love to see you under any circumstance -- you could even stay with us if you dare!

We went to a crunchy birthday party for a four-year-old yesterday ... a number of MDC moms who have been getting together for the last 2-3 years. We had a vegan cake that looked like Darth Vader, and the hostess had the great idea of having a book exchange instead of gifts -- solving both the "too many gifts" problem, and "having to make gift bags" problem. Sweet!

I will wait a few days for pics. Meli, I was counting on it looking better in a few days. It's not bad, just really dark. Looks almost black with slight magenta/violet tint if you look really hard. It is redder outside, but I couldn't get pics where it looked anything but brown.
