John Stewart is my homeboy...

Well, so far I haven't really posted a thing specifically about motherhood on this blog. No cute Avery stories, or any little anecdotes. I don't intend this blog to be a political platform, but it's a hard to me to separate politics and motherhood. Everytime I listen to NPR, watch the news or attempt to read a newspaper, I think "what is life going to be like for Avery?" This recession scares the bejesus out of me. The lack of acceptance in regards to diversity sickens me, and the overall disregard for each other makes me mad.
I truly believe that Avery is going to continue on with her life as a wonderful, hopeful and caring human being. Whether she is gay or straight or anywhere else on that spectrum is still in the air, but no matter what, I pray that the world that she grows up in will be more celebrative of her, no matter what her sexual orientation, or her sex.
With that said...I've always had a geeky little crush on John Stewart. After his recent conversation with Mike Huckabee on his show, I have to say, I think I may be in love. (Chris-you're still my one and only).

Check out this link. John Stewart is poignant and clear and very eloquent.

And for a little's a picture of my cute kid.

I am also in love with Jon Stewart after watching his conversation about gay marriage with Mike Huckabee two nights ago... I was clapping and cheering along with the studio audience while my family gave me strange looks :-)

BTW, love the look of your blog! That photo of you three at the top is beautiful.
