thinking about crawling


Which means 2 things:

1.  I now have to take a chaperone with me, the littlest one, when I run to the bathroom. 

2.  There’s a milestone contest winner!  Congrats to Mika who guesses that baby would start crawling on May 30.

3.  What’s our dog’s name?  Lola

4.  What do I call my husband?  BF

5.  What did my husband and I get in a Valentine fight over a few years ago? cupcakes (on the surface), but it was not about the cupcake!

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
