Have you ever been #speeddating? I did, and then I blogged about it.

How would you present yourself if you had only 6 minutes to make a first impression?

I had heard a lot about Princess Lacey, but not the full story. Thank you +Angela Amman for writing a beautiful article about this lovely friendship.

Today's post is On Reading... where I practice my free writing and admit what I don't like about listening to my son read.

Thanks for commenting on my Studio30Plus post and leading me here.

While your husband has a strong argument, I still believe that your son should still wear nail polish to school if it's HIS choice. After the initial problems with having nail polish at school, my son has seen a gradual change in the other kids and how they react to the polish. Most have grown used to it and don't seem to care. Others notice when the color changes, and have nice things to say about the different colors (it seems PINK is the major problem for polish when it comes to boys). By exposing children to self-expression at a young age, it will help them navigate responses to perceived differences. And there is no such thing as too early (in my book) as long as it is the child making the choice to express himself through polish. This is not for you to make a stand against gender inequality. It is for him to learn how he chooses to express himself, and how to respond when others might not accept it. Give him clues on how to respond in a positive manner to reactions he gets. He will start to come up with responses on his own, and the other children will also take cues from how he reacts.

You're right in that you are planting seeds for acceptance and self-expression. I totally agree.
