Our lives continue to be dominated by the attack on public worker rights here in Wisconsin. As a family with two public employees, we are watching these events unfold with a great deal of fear for our future and E's future. It is pretty much all we can think about and all we can talk about. We've been participating in demonstrations and having a great many discussions, but we are trying to keep the disruption's to E's life as little as possible. She will however feel the effects in two weeks when she goes from five days a week in daycare to three. She will see Miss Chris, one of her favorite people in the whole world less, which once she realizes it will be pretty upsetting.
February 24- Getting ready for bed, E and dad read "Tall" by Jez Alborough, its one of E's favorite books. Its also one of her dad's favorites to read to her, there aren't many words, so he gets to improvise quite a bit of the story. E gets a story or two every night, its almost her favorite part of her night time routine.
