Random Tid Bits

  1. Mica told me, "Mom I want my hair to look like Harry Potter's." I said, "What hair style? He had lots of them." He showed me this style:

    I'm all fine with the boys experimenting with their hair. There are many things I'm picky about. Hair isn't one of them. Heck it grows back, and can be cut at any given time. The trouble is...is that Mica head sweats. It's getting to be summer time. Mica's hair is thick! Travis refers to Mica's hair as bear fur. Mica's hair has always been relatively short. Mica's bangs also grow in diagonally. No hair dresser that we've ever been to can keep them straight it seems.
     
    After Mica showed me Harry Potter's hair, he followed up the conversation with, "My goal is to be able to have my hair in a ponytail by next year. I can't picture that on him. Isaak said, "I don't think that will look very good Mica." I had to laugh, and slightly agreed.


  3. When Isaak had a little longer hair it looked pretty good. His hair is fine, and he has a cowlick in the back of his hair. If it's short it has to be cut all the time. Otherwise it turns into a tail back there. If his hair grows out a little then there's no constant cutting needed. He prefers his hair short.
     
    It will be a summer of hair experimentation.

  4. Travis has been working in a dental lab a few days a week, or whatever they need help with. The job isn't stable, but it's work, and maybe we don't need stable right now. He wants time to be with the kids during the summer. He need to make more sculpture. He's sold a lot of his pieces, and other pieces are on display.

  5. It seems like once a week something majorly bad happens here. It used to not be that way. Omaha, Nebraska is a good place to raise a family. Lately I think everywhere is getting bad crime wise. We finally have an African American president, and racism is higher than it has been in a long time. Cops are thought of as the enemy to some people. Sure many have power trips, but most are in the job for the right reasons. This week a lady cop was killed. She left behind 3 children, one of which is in the NICU. She was expected to begin maternity time when her preemie was released from the hospital. In my opinion she should not have been out on the streets at all. She should have been with her newborn, and letting her body recover. 

  6. The US is going backward in terms of maternity care. You can read an article here about it. UK, France, the Netherlands, China or South Korea rank higher than the US for maternity leave and care. A study by NCBI showed that women given longer maternity leaves suffered less depression and lowered infant mortality rates. While some may shrug off depression, it costs the United States half a trillion dollars per year to treat. I could write a whole post just about this topic. It pisses me off that new mothers are treated so shitty by the work place. I had to take vacation time to have each of my kids. I had to take short lunches to make up for pumping time. Here another co-worker that isn't full time, but taught none the less smoked more then my pumping time. To even compare the two is down right disgusting. I'll never be ok with the lack there of, of laws in support of pumping for a baby, and paid maternity time. My middle finger goes up to the US for that!

I'm glad you're finding a schedule that works for you. It will be nice for the kids to have dad home too, I'm sure. :)

I was basically forced to use some of my vacation time I had accumulated when I was pregnant with Mariah. It's sad when the workplace doesn't value the mothers.

I am sad for the lady cop. It's been all over my Facebook newsfeed this week.

My boys are not allowed to have long hair (even a long as that HP photo). I like my boys to be clean cut all of the time. My oldest asked for a mohawk recently and I told him when he's 18 and not living under my roof. Ugh.

Mina's hair might look really good in that hair style.
