"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.

The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”

All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.

And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”

Astrid Lindgren, author of Pippi Longstocking, 1978 Peace Prize Acceptance Speech  (via notablelove)

Surprise! Gender Reveal Cake

  • A Gender reveal party is where the parents throw a party (similar to a baby shower) to find out the gender of the baby! 
  • No one knows the sex of the baby (just the party planner/bakers know!)
  • The gender is revealed when the parents cut the cake open and the inside color of the cake/desserts reveal if the baby will be a boy or a girl! (pink is usually used for girls, blue for boys of course!)

mine was full of wasps. HUGE WASPS.

"what’s the baby’s gender?" the eager party goers ask, crowded around the cake

slowly, the knife cuts through the first piece. “wasps.” the proud parent-to-be whispers, “wasps.”

one thousand wasps are released from the gender cake.

And now, the weather.
