The babes is in school now...with several Asian girls in her class, and in the greater school and she'll come home and say, "So and so called me Kika."
I could laugh it off (and call it teaching tolerance), but really, I can't. Because when people (mainly caucasians) can't tell the difference between Asians, I don't think that is excusable.

Well, I'm not going to go so far as to make a blanket statement about all 6 year olds...and say how crazy they can be...but I will say that my very own 6 year old - going to be 7 year old soon is really becoming quite the challenge. Quite the test of my very own patience.

Just came across this article on Well+Good the other day...and I have to say, I am intrigued. I think I've had a few friends tell me about this little book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and how apparently it's sparked quite a craze in uplifting people's lives through organization. This article has really piqued my interest and I think I am just going to go ahead and buy this book! It looks relatively easy to get through, not too many pages and apparently should be life-changing. Liberating. I am all for that right now. Lord knows I've got WAAAAYYYY too much clutter. If I can get rid of half of what I currently have and be happy with it, well, then let's get to it I say. I'll let you know how it goes. ;o)

Only recently, after being together for about 8 years did the hubs and I finally bite the bullet and buy some REALLY SHARP knives. We went to Sur La Table and just did it! We bought some Miyabi knives and let me tell you - they are a game changer! If you cook, I highly recommend getting some super sharp knives!

Lately, the hubs seems to be out of town a lot. In fact, he's out of town right now. Tonight, after I had put the babes to bed and went into the kitchen to do the dishes, it made me think of childhood memories. I wonder if the distant sound of dishes being washed will be a comfort to the babes when she grows up.

I have finally bitten the bullet and taken my child to a homeopathic doctor. And now we are on our path to homeopathic remedies!! Why did I wait so long? Well...I was always hesitant in the past because the cost is a bit prohibitive...
