Birthday Party Extravaganza

Today is day one of Elizabeth’s Three Day Birthday Extravaganza. I’m still a little confused as to how her birthday is beginning to expand to fill a a good portion of a week.


The Pervasive Princess Propaganda

I tried. Really, I did.   I bought my daughter trucks and cars. I dressed her in jeans and tee shirts of little girls dressed as astronauts. I encouraged her fascination with bugs and dinosaurs. I did everything I could, short of eschewing pink and purple all together.  


Organic Toys

  Before I was a parent, I was obsessed with beautiful wooden toys. I was convinced that I would be one of these moms that never bought cheap plastic trash for my children to play with.
