Kael asked me earlier if boys could paint their nails. A solid 90% of me wanted to say “of course boys can paint their nails. Anyone can paint their nails.” But I didn’t. I told him “No, boys don’t paint their nails, only girls.” Only because the stupid laws of society dictate that boys shouldn’t paint their nails, because it’s not masculine…. but F that. If he wants to paint his nails, so be it. His dad dyed a tiger onto his hair. I’ve had pink hair. We have/had tattoos and piercings. If he wants to paint his nails green because that’s his favorite color and it makes him happy then I’ll let him be happy.

Life is too short to be a drone. Be happy!
