Old Port

First Ferris wheel ride. Lots of fun. She isn't scared of scary things. Next she wants to try a roller coaster. Then she wanted pink ice cream. The only pink flavor was grapefruit hibiscus. I wasn't sure she liked it, but she did.

For someone who doesn't like sauce, she sure does love gravy. 


Matilda has too many toys. She really doesn't need anything for her birthday (if you were even thinking of getting her something). If you must get her something, I made a list of some ideas, mostly experiences, and a few books and art supplies.

This morning she created a rainbow with construction paper, just lined them up. It took 45 minutes of her organizing and setting it up. She loved it. She doesn't need stuff.

Snow fun

We tried snow shoeing and sledding. Both ended in tears from cold hands.

- use scissors

I love:
- drawing people
- dancing

- my imaginary friends, the "school friends." I have names for all of them.
- playing doctor
- my best friend at school, Nellie
- crack myself up
- pretending my name is MaryAnne

Woman's March!

Taking the bus to the march. 

We were marching with thousands of others. Matilda was trying to say "this is what democracy looks like" and "my body, my choice" with the chanters.
