Sunday morning

This morning I was sitting on the floor with Bear when AO handed me a cup of coffee. Bear immediately became interested in the cup. Or the coffee. Or both. I was sitting cross-legged so, as she would reach for the cup, I would put it to one side of me. And then the other. And so on. She was gaining speed, though, so I had to change tactics. I began to place the cup behind me and then move it clockwise as she approached. The cup made one lap. Bear made one lap. The cup made a faster lap. Bear made a faster lap. After these two laps, my belly hurt from laughing. After three and a half laps, AO chimed in. “Why are you being so mean to her?” Shocked, I said, “What am I supposed to do? Give her the hot coffee?” “Yes,” he said. Hmm. Lucky for me, after the fourth lap, I didn’t have to decide between being accused of torturing her with my coffee game or giving her a second-degree burn. Bear had had enough and moved on to eating and babbling at Sophie.

    Hot coffee is great for babies!!! Bear loves to chase after coffee!!! Well, if that’s not taking after her aunt Sarayu, then I don’t know what is.

    She doesn’t seem to care, though, if it’s Peet’s or Costco coffee. You might want to talk to her about that.

    I didn’t care at the beginning either. I don’t want to rush her growth process. She’ll get there, probably in the next month or two.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
