9 . 0 4 . 1 6

1. It is disturbing how dramatically parenthood can age you. Facebook reminded me that 6 years ago today was my daughter's baby shower. I was 34, a little over 9 months pregnant, and my husband and I look like we've aged about 20 years in 6. Sherman the dog looks fantastic.

2. There should be a version of adult swim for bouncy houses. And also pinatas.

3. I was searching through a box of old Rolling Stone Magazines that I had saved from the years 1991-1994. I discovered many things, both wonderful and disturbing, but one in particular stayed with me most of the day. Remember the old Barry Sanders Nike Just Do It ad? The one that begins with: Too often we are scared. And ends with: You have nothing to lose and everything, everything, everything, to gain. Google that shit. It's a good read.
