Don’t all people take copious notes while getting a pedicure?
This morning my mother volunteered to watch my little girl for a few hours so I could have some quiet time and get my toes done.  I thought I would take advantage and start reading California; however, I felt a bit like I was betraying Frida.  She was inviting me into her apocalyptic world and I was having a spa experience—talk about juxtaposition.
I began note taking using Cornell Notes.  It lasted until the break on page 8.  I had never used this style of notes before, so I am really glad I experimented with them.  I am now a firm believer that they should be used for non-fiction, informative pieces.  I could have filled my entire notebook with just the first few chapters.
I hope that these notes do not contain spoilers…I figure that the first handful of pages won’t give too much away before next week.

We promise this level of professionalism is not required to read with us!

I promise I won’t reblog everything from the book club but honestly this made me tear up.

I just cried reading this. #thiskindaday

I just cried reading this. #thiskindaday

My daughter is simply the best thing that has ever happened to/for me. She teaches me so much more than she’s able to even grasp at almost four year old. Last week she caught a virus and a bacterial infection which allowed her to stay home FIVE days straight from pre-school. 

Yesterday was the most challenging day in my short history of child rearing. She was tantrum-y, defiant, manipulative and unremorseful. What gives? I kept asking myself. 

After several time-outs, heart to heart talks and good ol’ yelling, I went to sleep questioning everything about my parenting skills. She woke up today “trying” to act the same way. I woke up exhausted - physically & mentally - and was in no mood to entertain her toddler hormones, much less ignore them. After a handful of attempts to push my buttons, I dug deep inside to tell her how I felt exactly, like she was an adult. 

The change was immediate. She ate her ENTIRE breakfast, she carried her own lunchbox to the car (she always complains it’s too heavy) and when she asked me to turn on the radio (drum roll) she said “Please.” She often uses the magic words, but in attempts to be funny, sometimes she won’t. Today she understood I was not messing around. 

What a Monday!

I love Jerry Seinfeld. So funny. Listen to this clip starting at 4:07.

"When we were kids, our parents didn’t give a damn about us. They didn’t even know our names! But when I think of the bedtime routine of my kids, it’s like the Royal Coronation Jubilee Centennial of rinsing and plaque and dental appliances and the stuffed-animal semi-circle of emotional support, and I have to read eight different moron books. You know what my bedtime story was when I was a kid? Darkness. That was my bedtime story."

3 year old: here watch this. It's for grown ups.

Me: then you can't watch it.

3 year old: I'm a grown up. See. (Stands talk next to me)

Me: here, come lie down with me while daddy gets ready.

3 year old: noooo. I can't lie down because I'm beautiful.

Anastasia’s prediction earlier today.
