this past weekend primarily involved angry orchards and bubble baths and now you know why i’m so sad its monday
This weekend Chris and I were so productive! We got our engagement pictures Saturday, and today we officially booked our ceremony and reception sites. Shit’s gettin’ real.
I’m finally on fall break, which means I can finally catch up on laundry and organizing my room. Thursday we leave for a mini weekend getaway to Cleveland to get some time alone and visit with Mary! Nothin’ like getting a personal tour of the local bar crawls :)
i just love when chris surprises me by staying the night and i can’t even sleep bc i’m writing a midterm paper lol
I love it when younger girls look up to older girls as role models and heroes. I love it when older girls enthusiastically support and protect younger girls. I love it when girls are psyched about the skills and accomplishments of other girls, I love it when girls compliment each other, take care of each other, encourage each other. I love it when girls realize how awesome and important they are. I love it when girls are fuckin’ pumped about girls.
The only person you can legally hit in the United States is a child.
Hit your partner, and you’ll be arrested for domestic violence. Hit another adult, and you’ll be arrested for assault. But hit a 4-year-old, and you can call yourself a “loving father”. That’s completely screwed up.
It should be against the law for a fully grown adult to slap, hit, spank, punch, switch, whoop, whip, paddle, kick or belt a defenseless child in the name of discipline. But it is legal, and new research in the Journal of Family Psychology suggests that the average 4-year-old is hit 936 times a year.
If study after study conclusively proves that hitting your kids doesn’t work as a disciplinary method, and worse, it has long-term damaging impact to their psychology and makes your kids more aggressive, why do we as a society allow it?"
