Jett Set Life

I probably should have put this in the last chapter, but we’re actually done with the house goals! Now all we have to do is finish up raising Basil. I actually have Astrid focus on that from now. She makes enough she doesn’t really have to write every day now. It’s the holiday where they […]

Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (FEARSCAPE, THE ELECTRIC BLACK, & INVISIBLE KINGDOM). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will […]

A new member of the family! Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, may not be interested in conceiving another kid, but he gave his wife the perfect present instead. [ami-related id=”- Click to search articles -” url=”https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-moms/pictures/celebrities-who-had-babies-back-to-back/” title=”Celebrities Who Had Babies Back-to-Back” target=”” inset=”true”] “My [love] won’t give me another baby, so he built me one,” the singer, 39, wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, April 22. “She rips. #indianscout #shenasty #fastandnasty #whatshouldwenameher.” View this post on Instagram My ❤️ won’t give me another baby, so he built me one. She rips. #indianscout #shenasty #fastandnasty #whatshouldwenameher🤔 @hartluck A post shared by P!NK (@pink) on Apr 23, 2019 at 7:40pm PDT In the upload, the Grammy winner leaned against a motorcycle on a dirt path, crossing her arms in an all-black outfit.

Willow, 7, was born in 2011, and she became a big sister in 2016 when Jameson, 2, arrived. Pink announced that she will no longer be posting pictures of her children on social media on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, April 22, because of negativity and parent-shaming. [jwplayer 9SJJCKSf-l3ahXupL] “I like to share my family,” the performer told Ellen DeGeneres. “It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I just won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it. I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.” She added: “[Willow is] 7 now. It’s probably best to pull her back from the world and just let her live her best life.” [ami-related id=”- Click to search articles -” url=”https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-moms/pictures/pink-carey-hart-clapping-back-at-social-media-trolls/” title=”All of the Times Pink and Carey Hart Have Clapped Back on Social Media” target=”” inset=”true”] The breaking point came when the Pennsylvania native shared a shot of her son without a diaper and “people went as far as to say someone should call Child Services,” she revealed. “There’s a kind way to be online,” Pink explained. “I’m open to kindness. … There’s a way to do things. And that mean stuff, that ain’t it.”

Y’all this prompt literally couldn’t be more perfect! It’s been raining, literally non-stop in Dallas since last night so tickle me pink when I see that today’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is Rainy Day reads! Unfortunately since it’s a work day, I won’t get too much time in reading during the rain but it’s April showers time in Texas and it’s supposed to rain all next week! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by a group on Goodreads where different topics are explored. If you enjoy these memes I definitely suggest joining the group! To be honest, I’m not really sure what makes a read, a “rainy day” read but for me it’s something cozy and maybe a little atmospheric.

KMC Writes

So, this is my final week of my Bachelors Program as such… welcome to another hold over post, this is the third in the Essay’s series of posts. A little bit of Shakespeare. Next week I will see about getting back on track with World Building or Fantasy writing in general. Maybe I’ll talk about […]

Lives & Legacies

With hindsight, the events of history often seem inevitable.  America was destined for independence from Britain.  All colonists were patriots who saw themselves as a nation and a people separate from the mother country.  This was absolutely not the case.  Colonists’ views on the appropriateness of independence evolved with events.  Over time, British identity gave […]

5 Minutes with Joe

We follow Pinky, with another Texas Street kitty, whom I nickname Patches. I spotted the Calico in a yard between Meade and Monroe, barely grabbing a shot before she disappeared behind a hedge. I have walked by the property many times since—March 16, 2019—hoping to snag a better portrait. After weeks passed, and no new […]

Diana Willett was filmed shaking the toy at the youngster while co-worker Tasha Cox recorded it at Wendy’s Wonderland in Monticello, Kentucky, earlier this month. Willett can be seen brandishing the blue-haired figurine at the crying child, before singing Willow Smith song Whip My Hair while moving the toy closer. The youngster continues to cry and recoils, with her mother Katie Gabie saying staff at the daycare had previously been warned about her daughter’s phobia. She shared an uncensored version of the clip on Facebook afterwards, writing: ‘This is my child being taunted and scared to death by a doll by all the workers at Wendy’s Wonderland on old 90, they KNOW she is Scared to death of everything! A still from the video showing daycare worker Diana Willett brandishing the doll in the two year-old girl’s face (Picture: WKYT) ‘She is a premiee (premature baby) and has a lot of delays and is literally scared of everything, dogs, cats, dolls, any little toys that make any kind of noise just anything and they all know this!’ The incident saw Willett and Cox charged with first-degree criminal abuse. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] Cox was also arrested for failure to report child abuse over her decision to stand and record the video without intervening. A Wendy’s Wonderland spokesman told WKYT that workers were using a special technique to try and calm the child down, and said they did not believe Willett or Cox had done anything wrong. Parent Samantha Daniel was among those who defended the daycare despite the criminal charges faced by its workers. Willett, left, and Cox, right, are both facing first-degree criminal abuse charges (Picture: WKYT) She said: ‘From what I know it’s one complaint from one parent who is unhappy. ‘No interviews that I know of with any other parent. No allegations from any other parent.’

the yorman adventure

In America, this is totally not a thing but in Czech and Poland (probably other countries in this area as well), they celebrate Easter Monday. What does one do on Easter Monday, you ask? Well, first of all, it’s a day off and secondly, it’s a day for shenanigans. In Poland, it is most commonly […]

Czech In

I’m listening to a Czech version of Stupid Cupid Stop Picking On Me. I am a reluctant listener, but the builders’ radio is very loud. Loud enough to cut through the drilling and sawing that accompanies their attempts to fit ceiling plasterboard. There has been no back door for the last week, so the whole […]

Bloodstones Through History

All the kids are teens now so it’s time to pick the next heir. Just to be clear, the next “time period” will start (aka I’ll start earning points for the next one and stop earning points for this one) when the first child is born, as with challenge rules. But, the world itself may […]
