Bad influences... and sloppy joes.

So there is a little boy at Deacon's school who Deacon adores- he's always looked up to this little boy and just loves playing with him. This kid is big into superheroes and taught Deacon how to play with guns and swords... which I will forever be grateful for. This kid wears spikey hair all the time... which means Deacon wants spikey hair too. Well, wouldn't you know it... a few days ago I pick Deacon up from school and I hear, "Hey Deacon's mommy! Look what I got!"- and he shows me his newest addition... an earring. So guess what Deacon has asked for? Yeah, an earring. As many of you know me, I am not opposed to piercings... I've had plenty of non-ear piercings and I'm open to my son getting his ear pierced too- but not at the age of 3 or 4. In fact, my thought is that if I have to sign for it, it's not allowed... except one ear piercing for my little girl. But then you get into the whole thing of- why is it ok for a little girl to get her ears pierced and not a boy? Shouldn't my boy be allowed one piercing as well- the same one I would allow my little girl to have? Maybe... I guess. But I won't even entertain the thought until high school. Damn gender stereotypes.

In other news, Deacon LOVES his hip hop class still... and he's doing remarkably well! No, he's not amazing, but he's doing well and I'm so proud of him. Best of all, he loves it. My favorite is when they do the "mean hip hop face"- cracks me up watching a room full of 3-6 year olds doing this. So funny.

Oh, and I made another new recipe tonight!!! I made homemade sloppy joes! Seriously, I've already told my friends about this recipe I'm so impressed, LOL. I feel like a nerd with how impressed I was with myself... but unfortunately I didn't take a picture. I know how much you all love my food pictures.
