Thanks so much for all of the preschool game suggestions in the comments!
Hey, did you know that tomorrow’s the Day of the Girl? Yeah, I didn’t either.
But I’m very excited because over at New Moon Girls, they’re launching Girl-Caught. You can print out your own stickers to slap onto advertisements or products, one that says “This is GIRL-CAUGHT! It disrespects girls & women. Stop It!” and another that says “This is GIRL-CAUGHT! It respects girls & women. Thank you!”
I’m pretty excited, actually. I can barely restrain myself from running out and buying label stock right now. It’s such nice, not-too-scary, sort-of-passive activism. I do think it’s helpful for getting people to sort of train themselves to look at things with a critical eye. And it’s more effective than what usually happens, which is me muttering angrily in the Bratz aisle of my local big box store.
It’s been a girls-only household for us the last few days. Cute W’s out of town all this week. He even has to miss M’s Back-to-School Night tomorrow. Most of us are coping okay, but our poor cat is bitter and disoriented. She prefers to sleep nestled between his straddled legs.
