The original working title for this post was “Hollywood, Race, Sexism, Homophobia and the Rulz” but after staring at a blank screen while stuck on stupid for about an hour I realized how late it was and put this thread up instead. I am filing the original title away in my “some day” basket.
We are celebrating my grandson Thomas’ birthday today. His actual birthday is in a few days but today is the party. He will be seven. His brother Ben is nine but Thomas is already taller than Ben.
About three months from now Thomas will no longer be the baby of the family. That is when his yet-unnamed baby sister arrives. (She will NOT be named Khaleesi.)
My son and grandsons have no idea how much their lives are about to change. The females in my family tend to be very assertive, starting at a very young age. It’s generally better to just give them whatever they want right away, because they will get their way eventually anyway and it saves a lot of stress on everyone.
What are you doing today?
