I am a Mommy

GZ was shrugging his shoulders so I quoted to him from Eric Carle's From Head to Toe, "I am a buffalo and I shrug my shoulders... can you do it?"
He did it a few times; very cute.
 
Then I looked at Naomi and said, "I am a choochie and I smile so nicely."
She stared straight back at me and said "I am a mommy... and I hate my daughter."
 
Testing, testing.
Always with the testing.

  5. Technically... 37 visitors yesterday, but who's counting??? :-)

    But they're all looking for technical reviews of Windows Live vs Picasa, which is apparently what I do best.

    I'm happy to have even four REAL readers who didn't fall into the blog by accident!!!

  6. *Ahem* -- FIVE! If family counts.

    You should really syndicate (or whatever) this blog on your FB profile. Why don't you?

  8. Wow, what did you answer back to her when she said that?!?

    Even though how many people comment is only a small reflection of how many people are visiting, I thought I'd still post and let you know I stopped by your blog on purpose. :)

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
