True Love

Chuy let kidlet have her favorite stuffed animal for her field trip to Jekyll Island.

Glass Ceilings

I never want to break a glass ceiling because then the broken shards of glass will cover the other people on the way up.

How about we skillfully surgically cut them out?

Chuyism

Chuy ate an orange.  I told her to wash her hands after she was done.

Later:
Me: Did you wash your hands?
Chuy: Yes
Me: Let me smell your hands.
Chuy:  I used orange scented soap.

Eleven Years Old

Whelp, time goes fast.




Principles of Adult Behavior by John Perry Barlow


1. Be patient. No matter what.
2. Don’t badmouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldn’t say to him.
3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you.
4. Expand your sense of the possible.
5. Don’t trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change.
6. Expect no more of anyone than you can deliver yourself.
7. Tolerate ambiguity.
8. Laugh at yourself frequently.
9. Concern yourself with what is right rather than who is right.
10. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong.
11. Give up blood sports.
12. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Don’t risk it frivolously.
13. Never lie to anyone for any reason. (Lies of omission are sometimes exempt.)
14. Learn the needs of those around you and respect them.
15. Avoid the pursuit of happiness. Seek to define your mission and pursue that.
16. Reduce your use of the first personal pronoun.
17. Praise at least as often as you disparage.
18. Admit your errors freely and soon.
19. Become less suspicious of joy.
20. Understand humility.
21. Remember that love forgives everything.
22. Foster dignity.
23. Live memorably.
24. Love yourself.
25. Endure.
