Thursday Snacks {6.13.13}

Recently On Vacation


Yesterday Austin took the biggest test in his medical school career. Not only does it help decide his future as a doctor, but it also significantly impacts where we go after medical school (no pressure or anything).

Now that it’s over, he has a few days off before starting year three, so we’re heading on a family vacation with some friends to soak up the sun and force sunscreen on a toddler. Cheers.

Tantrums: Why Toddlers Freak Out About Everything

The toddler life is not actually as cushy as it seems. Sure, I’d like 12 hours of sleep a night and all my meals prepared for me, thanks. But 2-year-olds are also going through a hellish personal crisis: They have just learned how to walk and use tools, so they really want to explore the world; at the same time, they are terrified of what that world contains and constantly fearful that their parents, whom they love and trust to a terrifying degree, will suddenly abandon them. Oh, and those same parents? They’re suddenly barking “no” all the time, seemingly just for fun.

    I lol’d at the absurdity of the examples in the Millennials In The Workplace video, until the last one about ridiculous reasons to miss work and then I felt embarrassed because that’s me. Oops.


Say hello.
