Painted my nails and spent the day crocheting. It’s been a very pleasant lazy Sunday.  (at Polo Run Apartments)

My honey’s scarf will be finished today, ready for him to wear in this awful cold. Glad we don’t have to go anywhere today!

Completed my first hat. I’d say it was relatively successful. 😊 (at Polo Run Apartments)

So Brad totally talked about this in an interview, saying that Shiloh prefers to be addressed by all the family as John (and if anyone calls ze—I guess, I’m not sure if there are chosen gender pronouns yet, so I’m just going to use ze/zir—Shiloh, ze’ll be all “it’s JOHN OKAY?”) and prefers traditionally “masculine” things like swords and boy clothes etc., and he and Angelina don’t care because they a) recognize that not all children are the same/follow traditional gender binaries and b) they love John no matter what so it doesn’t matter to them what gender ze is. Which I thought was awesome/adorable.
I’m not nessesarily a big fan of Jolie, however I will say this: If my mother had done for me what she is doing for Shiloh/John it would have saved me a a childhood full of frustration, numbness and confusion. I would not now look back on 19 years worth of life and wish I had been able to LIVE IT. Instead, I spent 19 years pretending to be someone else. I can’t help but feel robbed. Why do we tell children who they are? HOW can we tell children who they are?

Parents, please, LISTEN to your kids. Embrace difference and know that you are raising your children right by allowing them to be themselves and loving them unconditionally.


yOU GO ANGELINA, YOU GO

Started my first-ever hat - I hope it ends up fitting! Fingers crossed, especially since I’m using a particularly light-weight yarn… #crafty #crochet #beanie (at Polo Run Apartments)

Finished it, not too bad for a first attempt. The bottom is an old pair of jeans, the rest I made from a few old shirts. I’m happy with my #upcycle bag. #repurposed #crafty #crochet (at Polo Run Apartments)

virginity/nonvirginity is not a badge of honor, accomplishment, or shame.  even the trees know that.
