21st century indigenous

I let my second child entertain herself by decorating me.





This led, of course, to an argument with her sister.

E: You look weird, mom.


L: No, she doesn't!


E: Yes, she does.


L: No, she DOESN'T!!!!!


I decided to mediate. Or instigate-- sometimes, magically, those two can be the same thing. "I think I look pretty."

E: No, just weird.


L seized on the opportunity to make peace, as she so often does. Well, she just looks pretty. But she IS weird.


E: Yeah.


I'm so glad they found a way to agree.
