K told me when she is nine she won't be much in princesses. That's sad to be. It is one more bit of childhood vanishing. I was a late bloomer and late at giving up Barbie. I was in 5th grade I think when I was informed that Barbie was not cool any longer. I may have held onto playing for a few more months. I hope my dear K holds on longer than most girls I interact with. Growing up is hard... if she can delay it she will not regret it.

My sweet little girl went to a fun night at the high school tonight. A few of her female and male friends were there. She had fun despite the fact I too was there. On the way out to the van afterwards she thanked me for bringing her. I wonder how many other moms or dads were thanked tonight. I am glad I was one of them.

We cut out red dye #40 about a month ago. Not for all of us. Just the family member whose body I suspect converts it to speed. So far I think I see a difference. Maybe. Am I crazy? There is no medical proof the dyd does or does not cause behavior issues. So maybe its a preservative. I just do not know.
