My daughter just thanked me again for supporting her childhood years with cool, inappropriate information and other things. This time she had a list:
Michael Jackson bleached his skin, she got punished for saying that at school in the early 90’s (my friends in the LA music biz who worked with him had a LOT to say about MJ, very little good).
Christopher Columbus mostly murdered & enslaved the native people in America (she got sent to the principal for telling that truth on Columbus day).
Platform sneakers (Spice Girl era) to wear on “free dress” day at her Episcopal school in 5th grade, we had to hide them from her mom (well after our divorce, which happened when she was 3).
Black glitter fingernail polish (or any other color she wanted) whenever she asked, even though her mother didn’t approve. That probably started in first or second grade.
Then there was that homemade lemonade I made all the time that she really loved. I still make it.
I always said yes to going out for Mexican (I love me some Mexican food always have).
And, last but not least, she’s not going to have kids soon, but she did allude to all the turmoil she caused coming back on her in spades when she does have them. Karma!
My son called too and we talked about how to run your own business for a couple of hours. Totally different & equally fun and wonderful.
Hope you & yours had an awesome day!
