About Me

My photo
Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Is My Child Strange?

It occurred to me that this is not a typical conversation in everyone's home. But it happens here, pretty much every night.

Me: Okay, how does spaghetti and meatballs sound for dinner tomorrow night?

Lila: Can I choose?

Me: Sure. What do you want?

Lila: I want spinach... and... broccoli... and... those things that are round and green... uh... BRUSSEL SPROUTS. I want brussel sprouts. I want spinach and broccoli and brussel sprouts. Okay?


  1. would she make eat that if you made it? i think it's awesome!

  2. Ha!

    Green veggies are her favorites. She begs for them and they're always the first thing that she goes for.

    Personally, I think it's weird. But healthy!
