i catch myself giving crap advice

"I want to play with Luisa and her friend."
"Well, ask them and see if they'll let you."
"And if they say no?"
"Then cry and see if they'll let you."

at least i'm not bound by gender roles - this was advice to my son.
i don't think the advice worked, no. it didn't need to work because aforementioned friend went home. she had to be home at 10 am, so she left about 950 - I don't know exactly. I wasn't paying that much attention. At 1004 am her mother called asking why she wasn't home yet, and i was reminded that there are parents in the world who are even less desirable than me.

The photograph at the top of your blog - 5:31 EST, 11/17 - is absolutely amazing, Sarah.
