Loving these nesting dolls...even if they are Marvel and not DC! Thankfully there are plenty to choose from, including 'Star Wars,' 'Batman,' 'He-Man,' and 'Ghostbusters.'Slate again establishes itself as the internet's biggest troll by attempting to explain the bad science of 'Jurassic World.' Really? Does someone really have to write an article about why 'Jurassic World' is stupid? We all know that 'Jurassic World' is stupid.
Speaking of 'Jurassic World,' check out the Cookie Monster's take on the original 'Jurassic Park.' Now that I'm a parent I have an excuse to watch this stuff.
Black Widow fans flash mobbed all around the world this past week in an effort to help studio execs get that we want to see a Black Widow film. Join the #WeWantWidow campaign on twitter if you can.
In my personal news, on Facebook I opened up a discussion about taking young children to "nice" restaurants. My husband and I recently went to Red Lobster. We quickly learned that dining with a young toddler is akin to dining out with a cave person. This started a debate as to whether or not to get a babysitter when going out to dinner. I could see hiring a babysitter if I was going to an uber fancy/expensive establishment, but I don't necessarily consider Red Lobster to be fine dining, but some people do, hence the discussion. I do like to take my child with us to dine out because we like to dine out as a family. We also arrive at restaurants for dinner around 4:30 p.m. (16:30) so we can get the heck out of there as soon as possible.

I want to be clear that I don't think it's right to lie or be deceptive in order to advance a cause, however, it doesn't really bother me that she considers herself to be African American. I don't really care what people call themselves. Her lawsuits and lies are another matter, but I'm a little tired of the internet outrage. And I'm really tired of this woman filling up my Facebook feed. So if she wants to be African American, then let her. As you can see above my little daughter has strawberry blonde hair and she is part African American. Race is a social construct and doesn't really exist. Only one race--human.
Here is a picture of my dad and I below. Yes, this is my father and my daughter's grandfather.
