So fun and insane baking with my girls. Really glad I invested in some sprinkles stock.

I love this super weird picture Willa did of a giant s’more going camping. I love how it’s not from one of her drawing tutorials, but you can see the techniques that she’s learned from them, like the glints in its eyes.

Happy sixth birthday to this extraordinary human. And please ignore my disaster house in the background as we fight off a terrible series of never-ending diseases.

I sincerely hope none of you ever have to tell a six-year-old that their birthday party is cancelled because they are way too sick. But Willa took the news with such a good attitude, because she is that awesome. Happy birthday, kind of observed.

Tim Kreider is one of my most favorite essay writers and his newest book didn’t disappoint. I put off reading it, because much of it is about his issues with romantic commitment, which I thought would be stupid, but it’s actually super funny and thoughtful and reflective - like all of his other stuff.

As it heals, Joey’s First Black Eye looks like really goth eye shadow and eye liner.

When I resolved to lose weight and read more in 2019, the universe heard me and was like, sounds like you need the stomach flu! Which hasn’t been awesome. But I’ve been reading this book between vomits and it was great. I’m really picky about memoir, but this was beautifully, sparsely written and a lovely page-turner in a weird way.

We got fancy for New Year’s. Which mostly means putting on a lot of blush.

Willa and Joey got Christmas money from my mom to “spend absolutely however they want,” so now I’m riding a giant dog through the mall.

So excited - and nervous for the first time in a while.

Christmas books! No idea where to start.

They actually came out really beautifully! And I think we only wasted about $20 in sprinkles.
