Bleh. . .

Why is it that my daughter wants everything I don’t want her to have? I mean really, does she have to eat the plastic grocery bag? What about my new magazine or newspaper? Ick.

But does that really end? Tell a teenager they can’t have something, and they want it all the more. Just like in Harry Potter when Umbridge made it a crime to read The Quibbler. If I knew where my copy was, I’d find the quote from Hermoine on it.

I have a friend who wants a guy. He is so not into her. Yet she’s still throwing herself at him.

I have another friend who has a huge home but so can’t afford it. Debt abounds. Someone probably told them numerous times they couldn’t do it. But they did nonetheless.

I wonder if this exists in other cultures, especially African, Indian or Southeast Asian cultures. Hmmm. . .

I don’t have any answers. Just some observations of the day.

I'm me. Graphic designer extraordinaire, urban master teacher of social studies, former adjunct professor, high school principal, and now most importantly-- Mom to the cutest little girl ever. I try to live by the quote, "Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt, And dance like no one's watching." I believe in Christ, and sometimes I'm just trying to figure out what He wants me to do. This blog chronicles that journey.
