sunny just can’t take aunt josephine’s shit

This week, I saw Hamilton with my son (his second time). He was such a gentleman with me. He’s taken to making sure I don’t slip, holding doors for me, checking to see if I’m all right. We’ve taught him to be a gentleman with everyone, regardless of gender, but this seems to be a “mom” thing. He won’t go to sleep until my girl (his other mom) is home from work, and he checks in: “Do you feel okay, Mama?”

Right now, I’m at Barnes & Noble at the mall, working. He’s off with his friends to see a movie without parental supervision for the first time. I can’t bring myself to actually leave the mall, so I’m working here until they’re done. 

I can’t believe my little guy is this dude at the movies with his friends, you know? When I started talking about my big gay family here on Tumblr, he was so little. Now he catches my splashes.

We’re pleased to announce the release of our 2016 #BestBooks Lists for Kids and Teens! Our expert librarians read through hundreds of books this year and selected their favorite 100 children’s books and 50 young adult titles to share with you. Find the perfect book to give as a gift this holiday season or to add to your child’s reading list.

The world is rated R, and no one is checking IDs. Do not try to make it G by imagining the shadows away. Do not try to hide your children from the world forever, but do not try to pretend there is no danger. Train them. Give them sharp eyes and bellies full of laughter. Make them dangerous. Make them yeast, and when they’ve grown, they will pollute the shadows.

Honestly? I'm terrified about this proposed budget because I work in a library and I have no idea what's going to happen. We're not a small library by any means but I'm at a loss. He's literally turning the movie Idiocracy into a documentary. So...distract me with your headcanons of Lizzie and William's favorite and least favorite books. And what you think would be their favorite children's book? The one they'd be so excited to read once they had kids.

I am also terrified, and I’m real tired of living with my heart in my throat.

I think Lizzie would have been an early reader, and I can see her being interested in books that really emphasize and play with language, so as a picture book reader, lots of Seuss and Silverstein, and then when she’s grappling with chapter books, Roald Dahl (she spends a week trying to move books with her mind), and she was born in 88, I think?, so definitely Harry Potter. I keep thinking of titles that would probably feel dated to 90s’ kids, like Harriet the Spy and the Westing Game, but I think Lizzie would be all about books with a dynamic girl protagonist and also would read anything she could get her hands on. And as an adult, we know Lizzie loves her Russians–Anna Karenina? I have not read the Russians, much, so I don’t know.

Darcy’s first favorite book was Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel followed quickly by Flat Stanley. And then, of course, the Judy Blume classics about older brothers: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge. I also imagine he reads a lot of non-fiction geared to curious kids, like there are those series “I was on the titanic,” etc. And he starts reading Dickens at, like, 12, because he’s precious. I think he’s more selective in his reading than Lizzie–she’s an omnivore and reads a lot of different kinds of things, whereas he reads deeply if not widely. I want his favorite book to be The Once and Future King, but it’s probably something by Haruki Murakami, a writer who intimidates me and so one I have not read.

The one they can’t wait to read as a family is The Ordinary Princess by MM Kaye, which is a delight for all ages.

Even if you’ve taken off every stitch of clothing, you still have your secrets, your history, your true name. It’s hard to be really naked. You have to work hard at it. Just getting into a bath isn’t being naked, not really. It’s just showing skin.
