Lyric and I have a habit of reading while I fold laundry. Today, Lyric was pretending Coda was her daughter. I had a load of laundry that needed folded, so I asked if she wanted to read while I folded clothes. She looked at Coda and said, "Come on honey, we have to go read to the elderly." Thanks a lot Lyr:-/

Tonight while we were eating Story asked how Coda is a girl. Like how was she born a girl and not a boy. I said it was in her chromosomes. You know, genetics. Like she has blue eyes because it's in her genes. Or she has fat cheeks instead of skinny ones because its in her genes. I said she is a girl because she has... I looked at Devon because I couldn't remember XY or XX...
Lyric said, "A vulva."

Yesterday, I took Lyric and Story to the library. When we got home Lyric sat on the couch and read the first chapter of each of her chapter books. There were eleven in the pile.
Today, she picked up two more books she had reserved, so she added them to her pile. This is what she was doing this afternoon.
Thank you Unschooling! I love that she loves to read and has the time to read whatever she wants.

Last week while Coda was eating, Devon, the girls and I started talking about my breast milk and wondering what it might taste like. They decided they wanted to try it, so I pumped some milk and gave everyone a little to drink. Devon liked it. Lyric and Story thought it tasted like rice milk and didn't even finish the little I gave them. Cadence thought it was really good! She has been asking me to pump her some more since that day. This morning I did.
I am sure that is going to be really gross to lots of people, but I don't understand why. It's perfectly normal for Coda to drink it, but gross for Cadence? And most people drink milk from a cow, but that's not gross--weird! We used to drink cow milk, but switched to plant based milk a few years ago. I can't imagine having cow's milk now! I guess we'll stick with rice milk except for the occasional treat for Cadence:-)
