PhD programs do seem miserable right. I was just talking to j about this...how all this schooling has totally sucked but now he is finally at the end of his road and now he will get a real joba and we started going through all our PhD friends who are still stuck in grad school or post docs or trying to get tenure at programs that keeping cutting more and more tenure tracks...sometimes I just want to shake my head and scream.....so what am I going to do with my life. I just want to hang out at retirement homes and play checkers with old people and wheel them to their hair appointmenst. Seems like I should be able to work something out there...or at least get a volunteer gig. Surely. We have been loving home school this year. Sometimes I worry I'm giving G too much of a liberal slant when she gets morale outraged during US history about Native American rights, slavery, voting rights for minorities and women and them I'm like you know what, this shit stinks so people who don't get outraged...those people are the problem ;)

I'm recently fascinated by kombucha after reading this: http://www.inc.com/magazine/201503/tom-foster/the-king-of-kombucha.html. If the yeast eats the sugar, caffeine, and tannic acids, I'm assuming it's super healthy.

Also, I'm fascinated by roadschooling, too. I just want to travel the world with my kids. I have a couple of exceptional friends here, but other than that, I'm not sure what I'd miss.




I like reading your blog, too. :)

Wow. Good luck dealing with these issues. I agree it's a shame Americans have weirdness about harmless kid nudity - there were straight-up 10-year-olds playing naked in the water area at Playmobil Land in Nuremberg. It's also a shame we don't give responsible parents credit for knowing what their kids can handle.

2015-04-05T01:44:27.500-06:00

I'm pretty sure Allison and Ethan were outside "unsupervised" by five and three. It wasn't a big deal because every other kid in the neighborhood was, too. Cars usually drove slowly because they knew kids would be playing in the street. Now there are no children outside and cars fly down that hill.

I think you are awesome too!!! Please check out this other blog (if you haven't already heard about it) called Raising my Rainbow
http://raisingmyrainbow.com/
I commend you for letting Atticus figure this out with you and your husband there to help and guide along the way. It is what is best for everyone! Please do not let anyone else tell you what is best for your children!!

Androgen insistivity. You should check it out. It is an extreme but it is proof positive our world is a lot more complex than we give it credit for. Learned about this and a whole other slew of gender variations when I took physiology at BYU.

2015-03-13T22:41:40.662-06:00

I remember reading somewhere: "Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose." or something like that... But it seemed legit and seemed to resonate well with me. Kinda made me feel like it was my responsibility to help my boys grow up to become men. If they went off to college, went through some sort of identity crisis, and decided to draw attention to themselves by becoming counter culture and make that immature rebellion central to their identity, then that would be on them. At least I'd know I did my best, cause it seems like "parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness... to teach them to love and serve one another, observe the commandments of God, and be law-abiding citizens .... Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations." But maybe there is no God? well, I'm not a gambler, and if I was, I'm still not sure I'd take that bet. I'd be afraid that feminizing my poor little boy as some social experiment to generate internet attention might put me on some eternal "naughty list" How could it not... poor kid.

What a blessing to be able to wait and see without feeling the pressures from the lds church community. Have you seen the short documentary transmormon. My brother in law worked on it. It has no real answers except maybe love and just let children be who they could be. I'm with you though. There would be some strugle here for me. 1st there is just the natural slight death of a expectation. It isn't to say the alternatives are bad I just know when both my brothers came out in the same year there was this moment when I was like "what no sister in laws.". It seems silly now but for a moment I thought that. Then there is the just " don't you know being a guy is just easier.". I've been thinking about this a lot lately as I read books to my children about famous woman for woman's month. What a crock our lot is. Why would you want it. Even as it gets so much better it still stays worse than it should be. It makes me sad. I hope for my daughters but I also worry. Its like how it makes me sad to think this but often in my heart I am glad my children can pass for white. Isn't that horrible to think. I love my culture and I want to share it with my chikdren. I want them to be proud of it but I also hate the burden it has placed on me and am secretly relieved they can avoid it. Isn't that horrible. I've never said that out loud. Please don't judge me to harshly. It sounds like there are lots of struggles in parenthood ahead here for you but I think atticus is lucky to have you guys. Can't imagine there are many parents better prepared to help him navigate his choice whatever it may be.

2015-03-13T15:28:15.129-06:00

Out of all the people I know, I think you guys are the best equipped to handle a gender non-conforming child. I'm sure you'll handle whatever comes with love and patience.

Ikea is the best! Is the poang footstool comfortable? Poang chairs are my favorite furniture.

How did you get rid of the HFMD on your nipples? I recently got it from my daughter. I cannot breastfeed her because it's too painful. She is in tears, I am in tears. How long did it take to go away? Any little glimmer of hope?

I want to know more about pretending in one's brain. Also, shave off that genetic and unattainable hair? What about a really close crop?

What a busy year full of changes. I'm glad you're all enjoying Texas! My brother keeps trying to convince us to move to San Antonio.

Sleeping through the night and no diapers? Tallulah is quite ahead of Logan!

2015-01-01T20:41:30.340-07:00

I didn't know you were homeschooling Atticus! How cool! I've been doing my own research on homeschooling curriculums and philosophies lately, but haven't come to any sort of conclusion about whether or not I'll try any of them with my children.

So glad you guys are happy and enjoying Texas. Perhaps someday we'll have to come visit down there.

Love the Episcopal display. Incense symbolizes lifting up prayers of winning to God and sanctification of their team cohesion obviously.
