iPhone Mamarazzi, homeschooling a super-cool black boy, Fangirling Beyoncé, lamenting over racial ugh-ness, gushing over new music discoveries, trying recipes and obsessing over some book definitely for sure at any given moment...one blog post at a time.
Billy brought this bag home from the neighborhood pharmacy the other day. These are old fashioned ads for medicines all over the black and white sack. This is one of many changes our neighborhood grocery store has implemented. I walked in there about a month ago having been away for a while (I usually shop at our local discount grocery store outside my hood), and there is like a living room section with a fireplace and upholstered armchairs, a Starbucks, another little cafe area...they're almost about to make me start shopping in my own neighborhood. The sitting areas are so convenient. I've had to stop there a few times just to feed my son and didn't feel bad for not buying anything. Sometimes, he not eat when I offer it to him then say he's hungry as soon as we get into the car. The store prices have gone down a bit too and I just found out they double coupons. Hmmm. So these charming little pharmacy bags are working on me. I'm one of those people that marketers love--easily charmed by these little touches.
AKA Game of Thrones Book 2. I'm obsessed with reading a few chapters at a time and then watching corresponding episodes and so on. I'm special.
Wherever we are, if Zack is sitting, he is reading. If he's in bed, he's reading until I remember to tell him to stop--sometimes as late at 11:30 pm. At least one of my parenting plans has worked. My six year old son loves to read!
