I wish I knew how this happened. I don’t. I ended up with three copies. Which is fitting since everyone says I’m Isla.Highly recommend all the books in this photo. Mostly California because Edan is my friend. AND I CAN.

Today’s the last day of day care. On Tuesday, Bean starts preschool. This is the first time I’ve felt a bit weepy about him growing up. Other moms say they feel it when their kid sits up, or walks, or talks. I’ve always been relieved by any development that pushed him closer to childhood and out of infancy. 

But after being away so much this summer I’ve felt such longing for my little Bean. He is a KID now. Babyhood is far away. He doesn’t remember it and I barely do either. 

Sometimes I love him so much it’s painful. What a beautiful terror it is to be a parent.

This week four years ago we arrived at Peaked Mountain Farm to help care for a herd of sheep and make cheese. To celebrate the beginning of our fifth year on this mountain we picked up a pair of kittens from the humane society. #thunder&hail

I never ever reblog cats because I don’t like cats. But, I admit, these are very cute.

Lizzy Caplan Emmy’s 2014

that is a WINNER’S CIRCLE DRESS BITCHES

This is an excellent Disney villain dress.

Lizzy Caplan and I went to high school together. I think she’s a good actress but her fake Midatlantic accent in Masters of Sex is unbearable.

Richard Scarry fans (and you know who we … I mean YOU are) rejoice! The artist’s son Huck is publishing a previously undiscovered volume called Best Lowly Worm Book Ever!

 He tells NPR’s Scott Simon that he found the manuscript for Best Lowly Worm Book Ever! in his father’s Swiss chalet.

"I looked here and I looked there, and underneath my father’s desk I indeed found a rather dusty gray portfolio," he says. "And in there, there were a lot of sketches on tracing paper. So it was basically all sketched out and the text had been written — it was done with my father’s typewriter and taped down onto the pages. But he never got around to doing the final art and so that’s what I did."

Read the rest of the story (and find out why it’s okay that Lowly can kick a ball despite having — or being — only one leg) here.

"…he found the manuscript…in his father’s SWISS CHALET."
