Gender Roles GARBAGE

So Miss Zee loves Toy Story her room has a bunch of cut outs of the Characters on her walls, she has a Toy Story bed tent.  I don't care if people thing it's a "Boy thing" it's what she likes and that's all I care about.  Well I hit my break point with this today I found the most amazing ROCKING shoes ever and do they sell them for women, nope.  Is that going to stop me wanting them or begging for them NOPE.  I will own a pair of Kermit shoes but I don't get why we have to place these rules on kids.  I grew up with my favorite color being BLUE, I could care less if I was told it's a boy color it's what I liked so people could deal with it or hush up.  I read an article the other day about two boys and a dad at a store buying a video game and controller and the father loosing it because the younger boy wanted a purple controller.  First it was AWESOME looking second what does it matter what color your kid likes.  Grow a pair, if the kid is gay he is and embrace him for being himself.  If not and he just likes purple so be it, we are all individuals and that's how it should be.  If we had boys they would be in Dance class right along with the girls.  I see NOTHING wrong with it.  For the few of you out there who don't think it's right you are entitled to that opinion but really think long and hard about what you are trying to raise your kids like.  I want my girls to be there own person, do what they want to do, dress how they feel like.  You have to let them figure out for themselves who they are and what they want to be.  You can either teach them being who you are is FINE no matter what other people think or you can just be STUPID!!!!!

Post Party Crazies

I had a helper to make Kyrie's birthday banner and she wasn't the most helpful little cat laying on the letters and trying to get the ribbon and eyelets but I got it all done.  I made a cupcake for school snack on Friday and the Zebra Pink heart cake for her rock star party today.

2012 Brave

My Word of the Year (W.O.Y.) for 2012 is BRAVE!!!!!  I am thinking of doing my craft as wood letters with paper and vinyl because out of all the words I have picked in the past this is the one that I think I need the most.  I have to learn to be Brave so I can teach the girls to be brave too.  We are over the hump of signing up with the Caregiver program now it's just getting done the things we need to get done before our next home visit in March (not a lot of time for slow steps thankfully not too much is needed).  I picked Brave after seeing a quote posted onto one of the PTSD/TBI people/organizations I follow. 

I know this is not where I thought my life would be at 30, but this is where I am so I need to learn to be Brave with it and strive on.  I am having a hard time with admitting we need help, and working on not being so stressed out.  I am tired of sitting on the sidelines in our life, now is the time to get out and do what needs to be done.  I am not excepting NO, anymore I am going to find the things we need to make our family better.  Almost three years ago we were thrown for the biggest loop we have faced, now we are working on ways to beat and deal with what we were dealt from it all.  It might not be what we dreamed it would be but it is what we got so I am going to make the most of it.  Now I just have to start facing the problems we have head and and not back away because I am too afraid of admitting we need help. 

I also see a Disney Movie on my To Watch with the kids list, it is perfectly named BRAVE, Disney must have known I needed a movie about my Word!
